Moon Magic


The Moon is the astronomical body closest to us and, therefore, has a profound influence upon us, it is very important to choose a time when the Moon is in an astrological sign which is appropriate for your working.
For example:
Aries/Action - Enthusiasm
Taurus/ Renewal - Sensuality
Gemini/Communication - Curiosity
Cancer/Emotion - Nurturing
Leo/Vitality - Determined
Virgo/Organizing - Studious
Libra/Balance - Cooperation
Scorpio/Sexual - Philosophical
Capricorn/Authority - Ambitious
Aquarius/Innovation Social
Pisces/Sensitivity - Idealistic.
Bear in mind that magickal workings for gain, increase or bringing things to you, should be initiated when the Moon is Waxing (from Dark to Full); when the Moon is Waning (from Full to Dark), it is time for magickal workings of decrease or sending away.
The highest energy occurs at the Full Moon and, therefore, this is the most powerful time for magickal workings. The New Moon is the next most powerful time for Magick.
Whenever possible, follow Nature's natural Energy Currents. There is a natural time for starting things (a planting time), for
maturing things (a growing time), for reaping things ( a harvest time) and, of course, a time for rest and planning.
Flowing with these currents will make your magickal work much easier.

Hear the words of the Star Goddess, the dust
of whose feet are the hosts of heaven, and
whose body encircles the universe:
"I who am the beauty of the green earth,
and the white moon among the stars,
and the mysteries of the waters,
I call upon your soul to arise and come unto Me.
For I am the soul of nature that gives life to the universe.
From me all things proceed and unto me they must return.
Let My worship be in the heart that rejoices,
for behold! all acts of love and pleasure are My rituals.
Let there be beauty and strength,
power and compassion,
honor and humility,
mirth and reverence within you.
And you who seek to know Me,
know that your seeking and yearning will avail you not,
unless you know the Mystery.
For if that which you seek, you find not within yourself
you will never find it without.
For behold! I have been with you from the beginning,
and I am that which is attained at the end of desire."
