Cycles of the Moon
Moon Phase Used For Duration
Waxing Increase - to draw to you or make something grow from day after New Moon to the day before Full Moon
Waning Decrease - to make something smaller or to banish from second day after Full Moon to the day before the New Moon from 2 days after the Full Moon to the day before the New Moon
Full Moon Energy at highest power - when the need is great the night before, the night of, and the night after are all high energy times
New Moon To start new projects or ideas the first night when just the first tiniest sliver can be seen
Dark of the Moon time for very secret, inner workings, for meditations on your inner self the night before the New Moon, when the moon cannot be seen at all

New Moons always occur in the same astrological sign that the sun is in, and the Full Moon is always in the opposite sign (6 signs away). For example: When the sun is in Virgo, the New Moon is also in Virgo and the Full Moon is in Pisces, Virgo's opposite. There is not enough room here to go into Astrology, but it is a good idea generally to make sure that aspects are favorable for you when you plan to do a major working. Just as you would check the weather before planning an event, it's a good idea to check your upcoming horoscope as well.

Avoid starting any magickal working when the Moon is "void of course". This means that the Moon is in between astrological signs, and the energies are not well defined. Also avoid working magick on an eclipse! This will cause a fairly high degree of "Aunt Clara's"... what we call magickal workings that have gone awry!

If you must do an increase spell during the waning moon, get a black candle and burn it for at least 15 minutes first to create a vacuum to draw what you want into it. It won't work as well, but try it if you are desperate.

Moon Phases

Just as the phases of the Moon affect Nature, so too do they influence magickal workings. If you are trying to attain a certain result, it is advised to perform the ritual during the phase of the Moon associated with what you are aiming to achieve. The different phases have different properties, and can lend energies to your magickal workings. The Moon is your clock and your calendar for working magick. Raymond Buckland, Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft, p. 161

New Moon

The new moon is a time of beginnings. It is a period of controlled energies and growth. Divination is particularly powerful at this time as well. It is a time of personal growth and healing.

Waxing Moon

This is a good time for constructive magick. This is magick that is for increase. If something is already in progress, magick at this time will influence it. The Waxing Moon is associated with the Maiden, so workings that may require influence of this aspect of the Goddess.

Full Moon

The Full Moon is a time for workings that require great force. The Full Moon can be cojured for 7 days - 3 days prior, the night of the Full moon, and the 3 days following. Sometimes the effects of cojuring done on the Full Moon take one full lunary cycle to take hold and come to completion. At this time, the other planes can be influenced. The subconscious spheres of influence are at their most acrive and receptive as well. The Full Moon symbolizes the Mother aspect of the Goddess. It is also a time of great psychic energies, though the energies here are very different from those which surround the New Moon.

Waning Moon

This is a good time for destructive magick. This is magick that is concerned with the ending of things, such as bad habits, ways of life, or negative emotions. It is also a timefor banishing and rejecting things in our lives we no longer wish to have around us. The Waning Moon represents the Crone aspect of the goddess.

Dark of the Moon

The Dark of the Moon occurs over the 3 days before the New Moon. At this time, the moon cannot be seen at all. At this time, no magick should be performed. This allows you to give yourself a break. Meditations and vision questing may be performed at this time, but not for specific purposes. Hecate rules this time of the cycle. So if you require her assistance, this is when you should perform ritual to attain it.
