who are working everyday magic. However, there are other solar cycles worth following... if you have the time. If not, don't

The moon waxes & wanes each month, rising an hour or so later during each
twenty-four hour period. When it is full, it rises as the sun sets. There are different types of spells traditionally performed
at the phases of the moon. More complicated patterns exist, relating to the specific day of each lunar month, but these methods
are rarely followed today. The Moon's phases & the types of magic appropriate to them are:
WAXING MOON (From New to
Full) When the Moon is waxing it is a time for beginnings, health & healing, psychic awareness, beauty, fertility &

SOLAR & LUNAR ECLIPSES are dramatic
moments both for their observers as well as for magicians. In the past, magicians were urged not to perform magic during eclipses.
Today, many natural magicians use the suggestive power of an eclipse to fuel spells involving banishments, including the destruction
of disease. These have been some timing suggestions. Let them be guides, not shackles!
METEOR SHOWERS are a great time
for powers which require help from above as well as a lot of power.
RAINBOWS are great for balancing, repairing, healing,
protection and anything to do with Chakras. It is a time of great power.
Many celebrations in history began or
ended at a specific time because of the potent symbolism that time evoked for the participants, or because of other associated
Daylight hours are best for matters of the conscious mind, including magic for leadership,
intelligence and all cognitive functions. The Sun is a welcome friend to chase any shadows that may be hiding in our lives.
It is regarded as a beneficial sign of divine blessing when it shines on any special occasion. Mystical pursuits during daylight
hours can be empowered when combined with a southerly wind.
The intuitive, emotional self, maternal nature, healing,
fertility, and Moon magic area all part of the charm of the night. Wishing on stars, dreams, the eternal nature of the spirit,
and ancient mysteries come into play once the Sun has set. If your observance can incorporate the west wind, all the better.
This breeze is filled with flowing water and peacefulness.
Beginning any ritual, spell or celebration at dawn
commemorates a new beginning, freshens, warmth and renewed hope. An especially potent time for Spring observances. Magic performed
at dawn can also be accentuated by working with an easterly wind, blowing from the horizon where the Sun rises.
and ending are the messages dusk brings. But this finality is not without promise. Dusk marks a temporary change toward darkness.
It is a time to look within oneself and ponder universal truths. It is an excellent time to perform rites which mark the passage
of a loved one, intense personal transitions, or to mark the end of any cycle. Magic performed at dusk is aided by the northerly
wind, which is cool, brining heated matters to rest and an opportunity to reconsider our actions.
