Moon Magick – using the power of the moon in your spells

One of the easiest and strongest ways to work with moon magick is with the power of the moon. Did you catch the latest new moon? The moon waxes and wanes, its energy changing and we can harness that moon magick power as we follow the changes in the lunar cycle. We are intuitively and intrinsically drawn to the moon. Each month as the moon shifts through different phases via shadow, we too change with the cycle.

The moon rules over our emotional selves as well as our feminine sides. It also rules over the day Monday (Moon-day is how I remember it).

The full moon represents completion and goals achieved, whereas the new moon represents new ideas forming and new beginnings. Do you feel extra emotional around the time of full or new moons? That’s moon magick.

New moons have just as much power as full moons. There are also super moons, harvest moons, blood moons and more.

Something to keep in mind is what sign of the zodiac the moon is in. Each sign will affect you differently, and if the moon is in your sign, expect to be feeling the energy extra intensely. For example, the moon is in Scorpio. You would expect to feel the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time.

Moon magick is an easy way to get into the world of magick. Women are especially drawn to the moon and affected by its cycles. Lunar cycles include full moon, waxing gibbous, crescent, quarter moon, and waning gibbous.

What kind of spells are you going to perform during the next full or new moon? Let us know in the comments.
