powerful effects of the seasons can also, according to some Earth
magicians, subtly affect magickal workings. Traditionally, these types
of magick are performed during these seasons:
A time for healing; purification spring cleaning is one survival of
this); psychic awareness; paying bills; fertility; planting magickal
gardens; & ecological rituals. Air magick.
A time for love, marriage, friendship, beauty, protection, courage,
magickal energy, physical energy, & strength. Fire magick.
AUTUMN: A time for money, employment, new possessions (including cars & homes). Water magick.
A time for banishments of disease, habits & addictions, seeking
past lives. This is a time for introspection, meditation, reading,
& magickal exercises designed to renew the magician for the coming
spring. Earth magick.
STORMS: are periods of intense energy. All spells cast during storms
will be empowered by them, and may prove to be more effective.
Protection rituals are ideal at these times.
RAINSTORMS: are fine for purification, love, compassion, friendship, beauty rituals, & releasing guilt & jealousy.
SNOWSTORMS: are the time for gentle magick, purification, & stilling emotions. release unrequited love.
HEAVY WINDS: empower rites designed to break addictions, assist study, & travel spells.
SEARING HOT DAY: charge rites of protection, courage, & energy.
& LUNAR ECLIPSES: are dramatic moments both for their observers as
well as for magicians. In the past, magicians were urged not to perform
magick 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!
magicians may wait months for the sun to enter the proper sign of the
Zodiac. This is fine for major workings but unrealistic for those who
are working everyday magick. However, there are other solar cycles
worth following... if you have the time. If not, don't wait.
Day begins as light stretches out from the eastern horizon. This is an
excellent time to perform rituals involving purification, business
success, study, employment, breaking addictions of all kinds, travel,
releasing guilt & jealousy, healing diseases, & the conscious
NOON: The sun shines far above at
full strength. This is fine for all sunrise ritual purposes, as well as
those that involve magickal energy, physical energy & strength,
protection, money & courage.
The sun slips below the western horizon, signaling the time for
breaking addictions, weight-loss, banishing misery & pain,
transforming anguish & negative habits
The sun is out of sight. This is the drowsy time for beauty, dreams,
psychic dreams, psychic awareness, spirituality, sleep, sex,
purification, love, friendships, peace, releasing stress, healing
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 magick 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 & all positive
FULL MOON: All
positive magickal spells are performed beneath the potent glow of the
Full Moon, including protection, love, healing, purification, psychic
awareness, money & travel.
MOON: (From Full to New) This is the time for banishments of habits,
addictions, disease & negative thoughts. jealousy, guilt, &
hurts are released under the waning Moon. The old is swept away to make
room for the new.
