Moon Phase Magick: Enhancing Your Weekend Rituals

This week we delve into the magickal world of Moon Phase Magick.

The moon, with its ever-changing phases, offers a powerful tool for enhancing your weekend rituals. Each phase holds different energies and opportunities for growth, reflection, and manifestation.

The moon has always been a symbol of the divine feminine, mystery, and the cycle of renewal. Its phases from new to full reflect the cycle of life, death, and rebirth, offering a blueprint for transformation in our own lives.


Understanding Moon Phases

1. New Moon – New Beginnings
The New Moon marks the start of the lunar cycle, a time for setting intentions and starting new projects. It's a period of rebirth and renewal.


2. Waxing Crescent – Setting Intentions
As the moon grows, so should your focus on the intentions set during the New Moon. It's a time to lay the groundwork for your goals.


3. First Quarter – Taking Action
The First Quarter is a period of strength and commitment. It's time to take action towards the intentions you've set.


4. Waxing Gibbous – Refinement
This phase is about refining and honing your plans. Make adjustments to ensure you're on the right track.


5. Full Moon – Manifestation and Release
The Full Moon is a time of culmination and fruition. It's when you release your intentions to the universe and celebrate progress.


6. Waning Gibbous – Gratitude
After the peak of the Full Moon, it's time to give thanks for the abundance and blessings received. It's a period of reflection.


7. Third Quarter – Release
This is a time to let go of what no longer serves you. It's a phase of releasing and forgiveness.


8. Waning Crescent – Surrender
In the final phase of the moon, surrender to the universe. It's a time of rest, reflection, and preparation for the next cycle.


Incorporating Moon Magick into Your Weekend Rituals

1. Identify the Current Moon Phase
Understand the current phase of the moon and the energy it brings. You can use a moon calendar or an app for this.


2. Align Your Intentions
Align your weekend rituals with the energy of the moon phase.

For example, use the New Moon for setting new goals, or the Full Moon for gratitude practices.


3. Create a Moon Ritual
Design a ritual that resonates with the current moon phase.

This could include meditation, journaling, or a simple candle ceremony.


4. Use Corresponding Elements
Incorporate elements that correspond to the moon phase, like specific crystals, incense, or colours.


5. Reflect and Release
Take time to reflect on your journey and release what no longer serves you, in alignment with the waning phases of the moon.

Moon Phase Magick is a beautiful way to connect with the natural world and the cycles within ourselves.

By aligning your weekend rituals with the phases of the moon, you can enhance your spiritual practice and bring a deeper sense of harmony to your life.

Embrace the moon’s energy this weekend and let it guide you in your magickal practices.

Remember, the most powerful magick is the one that resonates deeply with you.


This Weekend  is the Waxing Gibbous Moon

Waxing Gibbous Spell: Honing Your Intentions

During this phase, the moon is almost full, and its growing light mirrors the energy we need to focus and refine our intentions.

Here's a simple yet powerful spell you can try during this phase to bring clarity and precision to your plans.


What You Need

  • A white or silver candle (representing the growing light of the moon)
  • A small piece of paper
  • A pen
  • A small bowl of water
  • A small crystal or stone (clear quartz or amethyst works well)
  • Incense (optional, for creating a sacred space)



Prepare Your Space
Find a quiet space where you can focus without interruption.
Light the candle and the incense to create a sacred and focused atmosphere.


Write Down Your Intention
On the piece of paper, write down the intention you're working on.

Be as specific as possible.


Visualise and Refine
Hold the paper between your hands and close your eyes.
Visualise your intention. See it as a work in progress, evolving and becoming more defined.
As you visualise, think about the aspects of your intention that need refinement. Are there details that need clarification or elements that need adjustment?


Infuse the Paper with Your Intentions
Open your eyes and focus on the written intention.
Speak aloud the refinements and adjustments you visualise, infusing the paper with the energy of your words.


Use the Elements
Pass the paper over the candle flame (be cautious not to burn it) and say, 'By the growing light of the moon, I refine my intentions.'
Then, pass the paper over the incense smoke and say, 'By the air that surrounds, I bring clarity to my plans.'
Next, place the crystal on the paper and say, 'By the earth's grounding energy, I solidify my purpose.'
Finally, dip your fingers in the bowl of water and sprinkle a few drops on the paper, saying, 'By the water’s flow, I adapt and adjust with ease.'


Seal the Spell
Fold the paper and place it under the holder that you're candle is in.
Allow the candle to burn for a while as you meditate on your refined intentions (never leave the candle unattended).
Once done, snuff out the candle and carry the paper with you or place it somewhere you will see it daily until the full moon.


Release and Trust
As the full moon approaches, trust that your intentions are taking shape in the way that's best for you.


Try this spell as part of your Weekend Alchemy practice and see how the power of the Waxing Gibbous moon can bring a new level of depth and focus to your intentions and desires.
