Dark Moon

The dark moon is the last day of the lunar cycle, it happens on the night before the new moon and is associated with the dark aspect of the Goddess. This is a powerful time to do shadow work, destructive magic, curses, hexes, addictions, divorce, obstacles, separation, protection, stopping stalkers, binding and banishing. When it comes to destructive magic, it’s even more potent than the full moon. Channel the energies of the dark moon towards inner work, healing, cleansing and releasing. The Dark Moon is also a good time for soul-searching and to perform divination.

This is the eve of the new lunar cycle, rest, meditate and plan for the next cycle.

Blue Moon

When there are two full moons in the same month, the second one is called a blue moon, it is said that the blue moon is twice as powerful as the full moon. The blue moon only presents itself every 2.5 years, it falls in a different month each year. You must be careful what magick you practice during this time as the result may be far greater than anticipated.

The blue moon is similar to Samhain, the time when the veil between spirit worlds is at its thinnest, this allows us to establish a clearer connection to the spirit world and the universe. During this time you will have heightened clarity and connection to the divine, your magical workings will be enhanced and psychic abilities will be more powerful. This is the perfect time to harness the moons powerful influential energy!

Any rituals or spells performed during the Blue Moon will have long-term results, this is the ideal time to plant new seeds and ideas, especially if you are looking to have significant change in a specific area of your life.

Blue Moons are also the ideal time for meditation, divination, truth seeking, love spells, banishing, wishes and protection spells

Lunar Eclipse

Lunar eclipses are a very rare magical event that should not be missed. A Lunar eclipse indicate a major shift is coming that will be out of your control but will lead you closer to your purpose. On average a Lunar Eclipse takes place nearly once a year. During a lunar eclipse the energies of the sun and moon connect and create a harmonious balance of male and female energy. This an extremely powerful, balanced combination of two opposite energies and is capable of bringing about real miracles. Use their energy to make big life decisions and bold moves.

It is said that the lunar eclipse embodies the energies from every moon phase, as the eclipse begins with the full moon, then it wanes until it goes dark and then the new moon’s silver appears and the moon wanes to full again. Thus, you have the energies from each moon phase all at once, this makes the eclipse the perfect time for all kinds of magic.

When working with the lunar eclipse, it is important to consider the timing, as it will display at different times based on your location. Check your local start and end times when planning your lunar ritual.

A lunar eclipse does not have to be visible for you to work magic.

Perform magic for relationships, money, love, wisdom, romance, protection, psychic work, healing and divination.
