The Moon: The Importance of the Moon and its Powers

Posted by Full Moon on

We all know the moon and see it nightly, but it is so common in our day to day life that we sometimes forget that it is even there or how important it is to our goals. Many cultures used to use the Moon as their source for the calendar instead of the Sun as we now use. The Moon will take 29 days to cycle through all of its phases but it only takes the Moon 27 days to orbit the Earth. The Moons orbit is not a perfect circle so its trip around the Earth could take 28 days to 31 days. Our Moon also controls the tides in the ocean. 

The Moon also emits an energy that is distinctive yet subtle. Some people are sensitive to the Moon energies and feel a physical pull during a Full Moon, while most other people will only feel a sense of heightened energies in their surroundings. Using lunar energies that are tailor made for the intended is a special but powerful force to be reckoned with. 

This is because each phase of the lunar cycle offers particular energies that can be harnessed for specific magical goals. 

The relationship between the Moon and Magick can be described as waxing and waning. As the moon grows we call for full potential of energies and as the Moon decreases we cast for the decrease of negative energies. 


New Moon: This is the very beginning of the lunar cycle, and the perfect time for thinking of the changes that you wish for in your life. Usually, magick aimed at starting new projects is favored at this time, and anything involving attracting or increasing what you desire is appropriate.

Waxing Moon: This phase is the best time to put forth the actions needed for our goals—actually starting, on the physical plane, the projects we’ve intended for on the spiritual plane. The energies here are ones of actions and projecting our goals outward into the Universe. Magickal work may be related to gaining or strengthening partnerships with others (whether they be friends, romantic interests, or business associates),improving physical health and general well-being, creating a positive flow in your financial life, and much more.

Full Moon: This is the most powerful phase of the entire lunar cycle. Many Practitioners  find that the day of the Full Moon is the most magically potent day of the month, and may wait to cast spell work related to very important goals for this time. Any and all magickal castings are favored during a Full Moon ritual.

Waning Moon: This is the time to release the energy of outward negative energies. Eliminating negative energies and experiences is the predominant magical goal now, so spell work aimed at jumping hurdles, fixing conflicts, and removing causes of illness is appropriate.

Dark Moon: In the days just before the New Moon, practitioners choose to rest for a day or two to let their powers refresh so they will have the best outcomes during the next cycle. However, many others find the Dark Moon to be the best time for magic related to closure, or bringing things full circle. 

Many new practitioners have not yet learned to pay close attention to the energies of the Moon during each time of its cycle. Each day energies rise and fall, although gradually rising throughout the month, until they are at their full potential during the Full Moon. This is why it is so important to have your works done during the Full Moon as this is one of the top times that energies are at their peak and can be harnessed for your changes and goals.
