How sweet Her silver light!
She is both Goddess and guide
And, though Her faces change,
She does, ever, abide
It is She who calls the tides
She's the One who lights the night
And lends Her blessed power
To our every sacred rite
Enchanted by Her lovely voice,
Carried on the silvery beams,
As we journey on this Path
Of shooting stars and dancing dreams

"Moon, Moon, beautiful Moon!
Fairer far than any star;
Moon, O Moon, if it may be,
Bring good fortune unto me!"
From 'Aradia Gospel of the Witches' by Charles Godfrey Leland
(We're keeping this very simple but will add links to more detailed info later)
New Moon: As the first sliver of a new crescent moon phase appears, we plan our new beginnings and positive changes. This is the Seeding stage, or "planting" what will be put into action at Full Moon.
Waxing: Increase! Grow along, just as the moon appears to, drawing your need/desire toward you.
Waxing Full/Full/Waning Full: For the three days before, during, and the three days after a Full Moon the power peaks and there is extra oomph to your spell work. Celebrate the Full Moon!
Waning: Decrease, release and let go during the moon's waning phase. Send away negativity, bad habits, illness and so forth.
Dark Moon: I prefer to separate the Dark Moon from the New Moon although some consider these to be the same phase. Go with what works for you! This is the 2-3 day period when the moon is not visible and is a time for rest, divination and contemplation of the phasee just past and the phase to come. Spell work during this time isn't avised.
Moon VOC: A void of course moon is the time when the moon is between one Zodiac sign and another, having moved out of one but not yet into the next. Also not a good time to begin any spell work as it seems signals are likely to get crossed and the outcome can be quite uncertain!
