Magick is not as complicated as we’ve been taught to believe, you needn’t study or have a lot of elements to direct your energy towards your intentions. Whether you consider yourself a modern witch or you are a beginner, read to find out how you can make your intentions more powerful using the moon as your guide.
Our satellite is indeed paramount for human beings: it moderates our axis, thus allows us to have a stable climate, it causes tides and lights our nights. Considering that our body is made up of 60% water and the moon controls the tides, we could wonder up to what extend the moon affects us. Here we explore how to use phases to harness magick and achieve our goals!
Phase 1: New Moon
This is your opportunity for a fresh start. In this phase, the moon can barely be seen. it is a wonderful time to set your intentions for the following cycle. Is there anything in your life you want to stop doing? Would you like to start a new relationship? If you want to attract a new partner, it is a perfect time to do so. But remember one thing: you first have to let go of the past.
New moon spell: Magickal bath
Take a relaxing bath, light some candles, add some bath salts or sea salt –it works just as fine– and imagine all the past soaking off of you, imagine your pain being transferred to the water and disappearing as the water is going down the drain when you get out.
Phase 2: Waxing moon
It is when the moon is getting bigger and brighter, the transition between new moon and full moon. This is a great phase to make your career, self-esteem or love life shine.
Waxing moon spell: setting your intentions
You can try writing what you want to achieve on a piece of paper and if you want to make your spell stronger you can light a candle thinking about what you want to achieve. Read the letter allowed and visualize yourself getting what you want, then light the candle. When it has burned all the way down, it was already delivered the message to the universe.
Phase 3: Full Moon
The full moon makes all emotions more intense. If you have crystals, it’s a good opportunity to charge them under the moonlight. Any magick you perform under a full moon will be more potent, trust your instincts and use its light to meditate.
Full moon spell: Full moon water
Write your intention on a piece of paper, say it aloud and place a goblet with water on top of it. Let the light of the full moon charge your water overnight, and drink it up!
Phase 4: Waning Moon
The moon starts getting darker again, moving back from full moon to new. It is a great time to cut cords with an ex. You can also get rid of feelings that actually cause your harm, insecurity or self-doubt. You can get rid of those negative feelings and empower yourself.
Waning moon spell: banishing insecurities
Write a list of fears, negative feelings and insecurities and burn it down –use a ceramic bowl or the sink if you don’t have one so you don’t hurt yourself. Feel the negativity escape from you, leave that burden behind, become the true you.
