~Moon Phase: First Quarter Moon~
This week, on Friday, October 23rd we will we blessed with the light of the First Quarter Moon!
For the exact time of the moon phase in your location, you can check the Old Farmer’s Almanac’s Moon Phase Calendar
The Moon Magick Guide to First Quarter Moon Magick on Spells8 says the following:
This is an excellent time to take action regarding your deepest wishes and to address your biggest blockages. It is a great time for growth and self-healing. As a continuation of the previous phase, the energies present at this time can help you feel more lucid and aware of how your intuition and second natures are developing.
Looking for ideas for spells and rituals specific to the First Quarter Moon? The Waxing Moon Spell Page has a lot of information including history, meanings, and a collection of spells and rituals that work in harmony with this moon phase. Happy moon magick!
