How to Make Understanding the Moon Part 2 ~ Moon and the craft ~


  1. The New Moon
    The Moon is waxing and growing. This marks the phase of the moon when the light is not visible from Earth, because the side of the moon that is being lit by the sun is not facing us. This should be a time to plan spells that introduce new beginnings and projects. A new career, house move, job, relationship, any new venture in life.
  2. Waning Moon
    The casting out of the old ways, banishing old habits, the removal of troubles and worries. A waning gibbous moon comes halfway between a full moon and a half moon, and a waxing gibbous moon lies between a half moon and a full moon.
    A half moon looks like half a circle. It is sometimes called a quarter moon as this Moon has completed one quarter of an orbit around the Earth from either the new position (First Quarter) or the full (Last Quarter) and one quarter of the moon’s surface is visible from Earth.
  3. Full Moon
    This is a time when the Moon is at its most powerful, and the magic most potent. Performing any positive spell at this time will achieve good results. This is the ideal time for healing, guidance, and completion spells.
    The full moon is referred to by a different name, depending on when it appears. For example, the “Harvest moon” is the full moon that appears nearest to the Autumn Equinox, which occurs in late September or early October.
    Other names given to the full moon include:
    January: Wolf Moon, Moon After Yule or Old Moon
    February: Ice Moon, Snow Moon or Hunger Moon
    March: Storm Moon, Sap Moon, Crow Moon or Lenten Moon
    April: Growing Moon, Grass Moon or Egg Moon
    May: Hare Moon, Milk Moon or Planting Moon
    June: Mead Moon, Rose Moon, Flower Moon or Strawberry Moon
    July: Thunder Moon or Hay Moon
    August: Grain Moon, Green Corn Moon, or simply Corn Moon
    September: Fruit Moon or Harvest Moon
    October: Harvest Moon, Blood Moon or Hunter’s Moon
    November: Hunter’s Moon, Beaver Moon, Frosty Moon, Snow Moon
    December: Cold Moon, Moon Before Yule or Long Night Moon
  4. NOTE:

    A second full moon occurring in any month is called a Blue Moon.
