Merry Meet to All!
Once again, a warm thank you to all those who joined in on last week’s challenge: Divine Magick!
From a very special request, the theme for this week’s challenge will be…
Moon Magick is often one of the first areas of magick encountered by those new to their magickal calling. There is something so enchanting and powerful about the moon and it’s many faces- and depending on the phase of the moon, there are many possibilities for different types of spells and rituals!
Many benefits and enhanced abilities await you if you choose to strengthen your moon magick!
Are you ready!? It’s CHALLENGE TIME!!!
STEP 1: Practicing Moon Magick
Moon magick is as diverse as the phases of the moon. Each phase of the moon has different traits that you can draw upon and invoke. A complete guide to each of the magickal properties of the moon phases can be found in Spells8 Moon Magick: Spells for Every Lunar Phase.
For horoscope enthusiasts, there is also a special type of moon magick involving Zodiac Meditations, that you may be interested in trying.
This week, on the night of Tuesday, September 1st we will be blessed with a Full Moon! This moon is called the Full Corn Moon and will reach its height at 1:23 AM EST on Wednesday morning. A note that this is not the “Harvest Moon” (the moon closest to the Autumn Equinox/Mabon) as this moon will happen in October this year.
You can read more about this full moon, including history and other names for it in the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
Many witches consider the full moon to the most powerful time to draw on moon energies. The Spells8 Moon Spells Guide says the following about the full moon:
The full moon favors communication and social interaction. This phase is very favorable to deal with romantic issues, as it can be a true aphrodisiac. If you have been working on a love spell, this is when you will see the best results. Act on your desires and take chances!
As this moon enhances communication with the spiritual world, any kind of ritual that is performed under the Full Moon will experience a boost of Power. Divination rituals are especially strengthened by this moon, like any personal spellwork that could use a major boost, including rituals for abundance, protection, love or wisdom. Your chances of success are greater than during any other lunar phase. Use the power of the full moon to cast any type of spell with confidence .
