  • Job hunting

Waxing Moon

This is the increasing moon, with the horns on the crescent facing left in the sky. This is the time for building up projects you’ve taken on; it’s the time of increase.  This is also the starting time of the Maiden aspect of the Triple Goddess. Some may work with Warrior Maidens like Artemis, Diana, Athena or Brigid during this time.

  • Change
  • Courage
  • Luck

Full Moon Magick

This is the time when the moon is full in the sky. The most potent of all energies. The magick can be performed for about three days before the fullest point. It is also the time of the Mother aspect of the Triple Goddess. Work with Isis, Frigg, Demeter or other Mother Goddesses.


  • Art and competition

Waning Moon

This is the decreasing moon, when the horns of the crescent faces right in the sky. This is the time to work on banishings.

Well met,
