As Old World Witches, we utilize elemental forces for magick and mystical significance of the natural world and its fauna and flora: Esoteric knowledge. Lore of healing. Protective herbs, natural poisons, psychoactive plants, energetic resonance of roots. And of course, the moon.
The moon is of key importance for the Old World Witch. The phases of the moon and its cycle (increase and decrease) impact the potency of the spellwork and its successes. Performing a ritual during the improper phase of the moon will not lead to disastrous effects, rather it will hinder the fruition of the outcome. The moon amplifies spellwork and works in harmony with the energies exerted by the Witch.
The Old World Witch does not follow the exact terminology and specifications of modern astrologers and astronomers. We maintain the visual interpretation and energies of the moon, therefore our spellwork is similarly aligned. Learn about the Old World Witchcraft Moon Phases HERE.
The times are listed in order to assist you with planning your spellwork. Some things to keep in mind:
- If you are in a different timezone than listed, please use this time zone converter to calculate your local date & time.
- If you are unable to align your spellwork with the date and time indicated, a good rule of thumb is to perform the spell the night before. For example, if you are planning to perform a spell for attracting financial prosperity into your life but the moon is Full during an inconvenient time (say, 10am on a Tuesday while you're at work), I advise you to perform it the night before. As the moon grows to a Full, so too will your access to the energies that are harmonizing the manifestation of your spell. Same applies to Dark Moon for banishing and curses.
- The Witch's New Moon is when the very crescent of the moon is visible, which is the evening on or between the two dates listed. For more information on the Witch's New Moon, visit "Witch's Moon Phases: Magick By The Moon".
