:crescent_moon::full_moon: Moon Magick!:first_quarter_moon::new_moon:

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! :sparkles:

Many benefits and enhanced abilities await you if you choose to strengthen your moon magick! :first_quarter_moon_with_face:

Are you ready!? It’s CHALLENGE TIME!!! :trophy:

STEP 1: Practicing Moon Magick :first_quarter_moon:

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! :full_moon: This moon is called the Full Corn Moon :corn: 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:

Full-Moon-Ritual-Spells

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 .

Like Brianna said, this coming Full Moon is known as the Corn Moon or Grain Moon because it’s usually the time when grains are harvested (in the Northern Hemisphere).

Here’s a ritual and printables for some Full Corn Moon Magic!

It depends on your location because the peak (100% illumination) this month happens around midnight between September 1st and 2nd. (Tue-Wed)

But a 98% or 99% looks about the same from Earth so (in my opinion) the days before and after are also good for working with the Full Moon. :full_moon: :+1:

It really depends on how critical you are about it being 100% full. The Moon is constantly changing so one could argue it’s only 100% full for about a minute, then it’s back to 99.99%…

I always thought there was three days to the full moon, the day before, the day of, and the day after. I don’t know if I got that from a witch book or a werewolf fic though. LOL.

hahah well that’s good enough!

That’s also how I learned it but then I realized that the moon phases are just labels.

The lunar cycle is one continuous motion and you can divide it into 8 phases, or 4 phases, or just 2 phases… even into 708 phases! (one per hour).

I think the best way is to go outside, look at it and see what it feels like! :waxing_gibbous_moon: :full_moon: :waning_gibbous_moon:
