The Working MoonEvery magikal practitioner should know which days to work and which to take off. Which moon phases are best for what kind of casting and which are for rest. These guidelines are not cast in stone and certainly if you have a friend in dire need of healing, you don’t need to wait until the next Waxing Moon to cast. But for some of the best results, here are a few guidelines, interesting tid-bits, and helpful information.
The New Moon is a powerful time when the Guardian energies of the Sun and Moon come together to support new beginnings. It’s the perfect time to write down intentions that match the true desires of your heart.
Write them in the way that feels best for you.
I like to phrase each intention in terms of bringing my creations to life with Love.

On the day of new moon, the moon rises when the sun rises. It sets when the sun sets. It crosses the sky with the sun during the day.
The image above is imaginary. It’s as if you flew in a spaceship to a place where you could see the night side of the moon. Why do we say imaginary? Because, when the moon is new, its night face is facing us on Earth … and we can’t see the moon at this time.
We can’t see the new moon from Earth, except during the stirring moments of a solar eclipse. Then the moon passes in front of the sun, and the night portion of the moon becomes visible to us, surrounded by the sun’s fiery corona.
Although the sun and the moon’s alignment cause a small increase in tectonic activity, the effects of the supermoon on Earth are minor. Many scientists have conducted studies and haven’t found anything significant that can link the Super Moon to for example natural disasters.
According to NASA, the combination of the Moon being at its closest and at Full Moon, should not affect the internal energy balance of the Earth since there are lunar tides every day. There is a small difference in tidal forces exerted by the moon’s gravitational pull at lunar perigee. However, the difference is too small to overcome the larger forces within the planet.
Super Tides and Grativational Pull
Moon is Earth’s only natural satellite and the second brightest object in the sky after the sun. In synchrony with Earth, the moon spins at about the same speed and direction as it orbits around the Earth. This means that the same side always faces Earth, and the dark side of the Moon, the half of the moon’s surface which faces away, is never visible from Earth.
The tides on Earth are mostly generated by the intensity of the moon’s gravitational pull from one side of the Earth to the other. The Moon’s gravity can cause small ebbs and flows in the continents called land tides or solid Earth tides. These are greatest during the Full and New Moons because the sun and moon are aligned on the same or opposite sides of the Earth.
The Moon goes through four different phases every month.
The full (Mother) Moon-this lasts from one night before until one night after the date the Full Moon is shown on a regular calendar. A full Moon is used to bring things
to you. A good time for spells for your income to increase, protection for yourself, someone else or your home, etc. It is also the time to consecrate a Ritual tool. To
hold a Handfasting, marriage or Wiccianing.
Next comes the Waning Moon. This period lasts from the second night after the full Moon until one night before the New Moon. During this period it is a time to send
things away from you such as a build up of negativity around you or to charm an object to help you control a bad habit.
Then come the New (Crone) Moon. This phase is from one night before until one night after the date the New Moon appears on a regular calendar. This is the time
when being able to banish or send away bad habits, negaitive energy, do a house cleansing, etc.
Lastly is the Waxing Moon. This is a time of new begginings and to bring good things to you. Use it to start a new project or job or getting to know someone better,
etc. It is also a good time for a marriage or Handfasting. To charm an object to carry with you for protection.
While I have only listed a very few things that work out better if done during the correct Moon phase. They are meant as a guideline to get you thinking about what
else you may do during the correct phase.
Remember every time you do a spell or charm an object what energy you send out comes back to you three times as strong-The Law of Three.
