The Waxing Moon represents the Maiden aspect of the Goddess. This is the time when the moon is growing larger in size and power. This is the best time to perform spells intended to attract or increase something in your life.
Perform spells to do with
- self improvement

The full moon represents the Mother aspect of the Goddess. This is a time of optimum power and high energy. I consider this to be the 'cure all' phase as nomatter the intention of the spell, it will be infinitely more powerful if cast during a full moon.
Aside from being a wonderful time to cast spells for all purposes, the full moon offers powerful energy with which to charge your crystals, charm bags and oils. Simply place the items you wish to charge on a windowsill or outside, to bathe in the moons light. Once charged, focus your intention for your crystal or charm to keep them working to the best of their ability. This should be done each month for best results.
The Waning Moon represents the Crone aspect of the Goddess. This is the time when the moon appears to be decreasing in size. Essentially this is the best time to cast any spell to do with ending or release but I have listed a few examples of these below
Perform Spells To Do with:
- Banishing a negative aspect from your life
- Cleansing Negative energy
- Decreasing stress and Chaos
- Bringing things to an end
- Releasing that which doesn't serve to better your self or life
- Binding a harmful person or energy from affecting you
- Bringing a painful or toxic relationship to a close
- Decreasing stresses in your life caused by work, home-life or relationships
This is the time when there appears to be no moon at all in the sky. This is the best time to cast spells that center around destructive magick and is a powerful time for divination and contact with the spirit world. to banish powerful negative aspects in your life such as ill health, addicitions (to drugs, alcohol etc), a toxic person or a curse that has been placed upon you.
Destructive magick can and is used (although not by myself) to bring harm to another. There are times in life whereby this can be tempting but I encourage all witches to remember that people who have done harm to you, or those close to you, will not fair well for it in the end. It may seem like a good idea to speed up karma yourself but this is the job of the universe.
The negative energy that people create will manifest and return threefold so just sit back and wait for justice to be served in its own good time. Destructive spells can very easily backfire and the consequences to can be hard to swallow. This is just my personal opinion and experience but there will be many who don't believe in magickal repercussions. For this reason I have included examples of destructive magick in the spell suggestions below.
Perform spells to do with:
- Banishment of powerful negative aspects in your life
- Contacting those who have passed over
- Destructive Magick intended to destroy something (This doesn't have to be harmful magick, it can be used to destroy something
- Banishment of ill health or a disease affecting you
- Use of Oiuja, Tarot, Dowsing and Spirit Boards
- Placing a curse
- Removal of a curse that has been placed on you
- Banishment of negative entities
For Further Potency:
You can further increase the power of your spell work by taking into consideration the day of casting. Below is a list of colour and spell correspondences for each day. For a quick example; if your intention was to cast a spell for increasing wealth then it would be best to cast your spell on a Thurday, during a waxing moon.
Although there are several days which correspond with increasing wealth, I would personally choose to cast a money spell on a Thursday due to one of its colour correspondences being green. The colour green corresponds with attracting and increasing money. You could symbolise this by using a green spell candle and crystals such as aventurine. As well as being green in colour, aventurine holds powerful correspondences for attracting luck and is one of the best crystals to use in spells and charms to increase money and wealth. I'm straying a little from the topic of this blog post so I will write seperate blogs for crystal and colour correspondences in the near future
