Moon Magick in Wicca
It is said the Moon to have a very significant role in performing magick for the Wiccans or even witchcraft and Paganism. Wiccans use the Moon’s magick to honor and please the Goddess on the Esbats.
The Moon has constantly played a very vital role in myths, legends and magickal mysteries of the world. Along with the sun, the Moon has also been thought of as a God and was worshipped as well. Mythically, the Moon is viewed to be associated with time, death, rebirth, love, passion, mystery and the Afterlife.
The Power of the Moon
Many people know of the energy that the Earth has on it. It receives energy from the sun as well. But, many Wiccans and scientists, in fact, believe that the Moon is also its own source of energy. While the sun has a sort of masculine type of energy, the Moon has more of a soft and feminine feel to its energy. Wiccans often describe it as the energy of the Goddess. Some people tend to feel a tug or a kind of magnetic pull towards the Moon. Most sensitive people are drawn to the Moon during a Full Moon as if someone is literally pushing them towards the Moon. Some people tend to get emotionally and physically heightened senses during the Full Moon.
Our sixth sense is a crucial mode with which we can connect with the Moon’s lunar energy. When consciously trying to connect with the lunar energy of the Moon that energy enters us and makes desired changes which we’d want in our lives. It should be done in full harmony and peace with the Moon’s lunar energy. It will help to truly manifest the Moon’s energy and amplify the power of the magickal changes happening within us at that moment. This is how the Wiccans also practice their Moon magick.
Correlation With Our Magick
It is said that as the Moon grows, the magick grows as well. As the Moon wanes and becomes smaller in size, so does the magick. It is suggested that if you want to bring in something better or positive in your life, do it during the period when the Moon is growing. And, if you’re seeking to let something go, be it a person or any negative energy, do it during the period when the Moon is waning. The transitional point between the growing and the waning is the Full Moon. Wiccans celebrate what they achieved over the first phase and then get ready to release what they don’t want in the waning phase till the New Moon. They then set new intentions and wishes.
The Best Time
The New Moon is a particularly great time to draw, dream or increase the specific item you seek. When the Moon is increasing, that is a perfect time to literally take some physical steps towards what you desire. Try to make your intentions known to the Moon and the universe, so that they help you along. Being the most powerful phase, the Full Moon is the time many Wiccans and witches save spells to chant during this period for maximum results. With the waning Moon, you release all the negative energy.
