Moon

The powerful effects of the seasons, the weather, and even the time of day, can subtly affect your magic. Traditionally, these types of magic are performed during these times:

  • SPRING:

Spring is a time for healing; purification, (spring cleaning), psychic awareness; paying bills; fertility; planting magical gardens; and ecological rituals. Air magic.

  • SUMMER:

Summer is a time for love, marriage, friendship, beauty, protection, courage, magical energy, physical energy, and strength. Fire magic.

  • AUTUMN:

Autumn is a time for money, employment, new possessions (including cars and homes). Water magic.

  • WINTER:

A time for banishment of disease, habits and addictions, seeking past lives. This is a time for introspection, meditation, reading, and magical exercises designed to renew the magician for the coming spring. Earth magic.

  • LIGHTNING STORMS:

Lightning storms are periods of intense energy. All spells cast during storms will be empowered by them, and may prove to be more effective. Protection rituals are ideal at these times.

  • RAINSTORMS:

Rainstorms are fine for purification, love, compassion, friendship, beauty rituals, and releasing guilt and jealousy.

  • SNOWSTORMS:

Snowstorms are the time for gentle magic, purification, and stilling emotions. Also a good time to release unrequited love.

  • HEAVY WINDS:

Heavy winds empower rites designed to break addictions, assist study, and travel spells.

  • SEARING HOT DAY:

A searing hot day is an excellent time to charge rites of protection, courage, and energy.

  • SOLAR and LUNAR ECLIPSES:

Eclipses (both solar and lunar) are dramatic moments both for their observers as well as for magicians. In the past, magicians were urged not to perform magic during eclipses. Today, many natural magicians use the suggestive power of an eclipse to fuel spells involving banishment, including the destruction of disease.

  • SUNRISE:

Day begins as light stretches out from the eastern horizon. This is an excellent time to perform rituals involving purification, business success, study, employment, breaking addictions of all kinds, travel, releasing guilt and jealousy, healing diseases, and the conscious mind.

  • NOON:

The sun shines far above at full strength. This is fine for all sunrise ritual purposes, as well as those that involve magical energy, physical energy and strength, protection, money and courage.

  • SUNSET:

The sun slips below the western horizon, signaling the time for breaking addictions, weight-loss, banishing misery and pain, transforming anguish and negative habits.

  • NIGHT:

The sun is out of sight. This is the drowsy time for beauty, dreams, psychic dreams, psychic awareness, spirituality, sleep, sex, purification, love, friendships, peace, releasing stress, healing wounds.

  • WAXING MOON:

From the new moon to the full moon is a time when the Moon is waxing, becoming full. It is a time for beginnings, health and healing, psychic awareness, beauty, fertility and all positive magical workings.

  • FULL MOON:

All positive magical spells are performed beneath the potent glow of the Full Moon, including protection, love, healing, purification, psychic awareness, money and travel.

  • WANING MOON:

From the full moon to the new moon is a time when the Moon is waning, and darkening. This is the time for banishment of habits, addictions, disease and negative thoughts. jealousy, guilt, and hurts are released under the waning Moon. The old is swept away to make room for the new.

Important note:

This does not mean that spells must only be cast during those specific times. These are simply guidelines for optimal times, a spell can be cast whenever it is needed.

Each part of the body is under the dominion of an astrological sign, from the head (Aries) to the feet (Pisces). The sign influences that part of that anatomy. In days long gone by, medical physicians were expected to have strong working knowledge of astrology.

Astrological Healing Waters consist of lunar-charged healing water, corresponding to the astrological signs. You can find that chart here: Astrological Bodily Correspondences.

Here’s how to make them:

Each month, on the night of the full moon, expose a glass bottle filled with pure spring water to the moonbeams. In the morning, label the bottle with the appropriate astrological sign. (or place in smaller bottles, then label.).

A solar water could also be made in much the same way. Expose a glass bottle filled with pure spring water to the sun’s rays beginning at sunrise and ending at sunset. Label the bottle (or bottles) appropriately and save for later use. Solar water will have a livening brightening effect, being energizing rather than healing.

Apply these waters to the parts of the body ruled by that astrological sign for healing purposes.

Note:

For the lunar charged water, you will be noting the astrological sign the moon is in rather than the astrological sign the sun is in. If the sun and moon happen to be in the same astrological sign, the effectiveness of the water would be enhanced. To calculate what sign the moon is in on any given day, you can use this nifty Moon Sign Calculator.

Lunar Eclipse composite l

Each month the moon waxes and wanes through its cycle, touching each star sign for a few days. As it changes rapidly, so can the emotional states of those people who have strong lunar alliances in their natal charts, hence the moons name, lunar, came from the word lunatic!

Waning:

When the moon is waning, it’s on the cycle of diminishing; therefore, it’s a good time to end anything that isn’t working, which allows something new to enter your life. It’s also a prime time for clearing and cleaning.

Waxing:

When the moon is waxing, it’s on the cycle of becoming fuller, and thought to be a more prosperous time. This is the time for gathering up, for bringing in, for growing and adding to.

Full moon:

The strongest period for the full moon is the period either side of the full moon, 1-3 days. However, the period just before the full moon, keep in mind that the moon is still in its waxing cycle still becoming fuller, and directly after the full moon it then begins its waning diminishing cycle.

New moon:

The new moon period is known to be a magic wish time, with its strongest time 1 to 3 days after the new moon and also just before the full moon. The time just before the full moon begins to diminish is a very powerful time to cast your dreams, goals and wishes to the universe for creation. This is one of the intense energy times to do spells, rituals, prayers and re-in force your positive thoughts.

Eclipse:

An Eclipse signifies an intense time of energy, which can spark the beginning or end of relationships and situations, and can have an effect before and for months after the eclipse. A solar eclipse occurs on the new moon and a lunar eclipse occurs on the full moon.

Here is a listing of herbs classified by gender. This is simply an old way of categorizing herbs by their basic type of vibration. Another method would be “hot” and “cold” which can be confusing.

Masculine herbs:

Masculine herbs are those which are possessed of strong fiery vibrations. These are the herbs which are actually used for protection, hex breaking, exorcism, lust, to maintain sexual potency, health, strength, courage, etc. as well as any that strengthen the mind. The list is as follows:

Very useful in cleansing and dispelling poltergeist phenomena, lemon helps to break up and absorb etheric energy. For protection during sleep, place a few lemon slices and sea salt in a bowl and keep by the bed. If a room in a house seems “unhealthy,” a bowl of sea salt and lemon slices will absorb any negative energy. After three days, dispose of the salt and lemon by either burying it away from the house or tossing them in a running stream.

Use lemon, which is sacred to the moon, for purification and love. To purify, mix lemon with salt and scrub the skin or add to bathwater and soak. The walls and floors of a home or office can be washed down with a solution of lemon juice and water to rinse away draining vibrations, and lemon juice can be added to a Purification Bath to cleanse the aura.

For love spells, add sugar to lemon juice and drink it, giving some as well to the one you desire. To solve love problems, burn white figure candles rubbed with lemon oil or extract.

Cleopatra used lemon wedges to prevent wrinkles. It can also be added to anti-aging and beauty spells.
