Merry meet again, its me Patricia, I would like to talk about the moon phases and the kind of magick done on each one. There are four phases of the moon, and each one corresponds with an aspect of the Goddess, a season, element, and direction.
The first phase is the Waxing moon. The aspect of the Goddess is the Maiden,the season is spring,the element is air, and the direction is east. The magick done at this time is for new beginnings, such as new job, new home, new love, and new adventure etc. The candles on the alter and for that type of magick are white or yellow.
The second phase is the Full moon. The Goddess aspect is the Mother, the season is summer,the element is fire, and the direction is south. This phase is for any and all forms of magick and the color is red on the altar. What kind of magick will depend on what color you use..but add a red one for power.
The third phase is the Waning moon. The Goddess aspect is the Crone, the season is Fall, the element is water, and the direction is west, and the color is blue. The magick done on this phase is for endings…ending bad habits, relationships etc. This is also the direction of the Summerlands where spirit goes to cross-over, so communication with them is done in this direction.
The fourth phase, and the one most misunderstood. Called new moon/dark moon/ no moon. At this time the moon is veiled from view. The Goddess aspect is the Dark Crone, the season is Winter, the element is earth, and the direction is north. This is the time to go within for answers you need, introspection, and contemplation. The only magick done on this phase is defensive magick…any other kind usually back-fires or just doesn’t work…the candles for this corner on the altar are green, brown, or black.
I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did writing it ..until next time Merry part till we Merry meet again..
