I found a cleansing article and I thought of cleansing my poppets for using, would it be better to cleanse them on a new moon or full moon? Are there specific objects that are better cleansed on a different moon or does it not really matter which one you choose? I read that different rituals are best done on different moons so I was wonderig if cleansing worked the same way.
In my opinion, if you wanted to charge/cleanse things under the moonlight, I would wait until it was a full one. But it can be completely up to you, because it's your poppet and ultimately your decision what you feel is best to do.
In my opinion, I would go by the full moon or go by the waning moon if I was using the phases.
It's more just a personal preference than the moon phases. For instance, some don't go by the moon, they go by the sun or clock. Some use them all or none of them.
Generally, when something diminishes or moves down, things are sent, banished, or cleansed. And while it rises or fills, things are replenished or brought to you. At the highest point, any spell or ritual can be done or divination and reflection happens. You can apply this (or not) to any spiritual working.
