Moon Magick: How to harness lunar energy

Luna Phases:

New Moon ~ Spend time to meditate and journal, reflecting on the past month. Set new goals and intentions for a fresh beginning and positive change. Perhaps get some like-minded friends together and try a group meditation and reflection over a herbal tea. Send your hopes and desires into the universe and focus on inner harmony and peace.

Waxing Crescent ~ After setting all your wonderful new intentions on the New Moon, this is the time to take real action toward accomplishing your goals. Share your goals with a friend so they may give you support and provide you with accountability. Create a plan of action and take big steps in the direction you need to be.

First Quarter ~ Pay attention and accept what challenges you face in the journey to accomplish your goals. During this phase, take a deep breath and care for yourself. Take a break and reset so that you don't lose momentum in pursuing your journey of intention.

Waxing Gibbous ~ This power moon phase is the perfect time to perform magic and rituals that focus on manifesting and increasing certain things in your life. Some examples would be: Increase prosperity, improve your love life, advance in your career or bring in new opportunities.

Full Moon ~ As we arrive at the most energetic of the moon phases, this is the perfect time to cast some spells, make some wishes and ask the universe for support and protection for the remainder of the moon cycle. Remember to put your crystals out for cleansing. This is another opportunity to get your like-minded friends over for a beautiful evening of moon magick.

Waning Gibbous ~Banish negativity during the phase. Rid yourself of bad vibes from stale relationships, negative thoughts and situations, illnesses and bad habits. release yourself from anyone and anything that longer serves you or is preventing you from manifesting your desires.

Third Quarter ~ Acknowledge your progress and accept that your goals come together the way they are truly intended. Similar to the Waning phase, the third quarter is also an opportunity to drive away things that you no longer wish to be burdened by. Practise magic that focuses on reduces or banishing things.

Waning Crescent ~ Thank the universe for guiding you in the right direction, even if it may not seem the right way at the time. I truly believe everything happens for a reason and good things come to those who believe hard enough. Challenges provide us with vital lessons and the opportunity to evolve. Refocus your goals and intentions and prepare to create new ones as the moon cycle begins again.
