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.
