[ [ Moon Phase: New Moon ] ]
We will be blessed by the presence of the New Moon (sometimes called the Dark Moon) on Sunday, August 8th - although the exact time will vary according to your location.
While many witches see the New Moon as a time of rest and reflection, others choose to cast magick speicifc to this phase of the moon cycle. You can learn more about the symbolism of the New Moon in Moon Magic: New Moon
Additionally, the New Moon Spells and Rituals Page has more information and a list of recommended spells for this special time
You can find current moon information for your location as well as complementary spells and rituals to draw on its energy on the Spells8 Lunar Spell Page
