Complete guide to the Moon's magic
on June 7, 2014
After reading The Craft by Dorothy Morrison, I knew I needed a good book to learn about the moon, since it influences so much. The author explains all sorts of old wives' tales and superstitions, but also some practical things affected by moon phases--gardening, fishing, and livestock care. She teaches when to perform the right magic and fulfill the right tasks according to moon phase.
One part that really stuck out to me was that she was out of town for a full moon gathering and found out a sleazy trainer had beaten her dog. She wished all sorts of awful things on him, then got a frantic call soon after from her then husband who told her the trainer was hit by a truck and badly injured! The full moon has huge influence, many of us have experienced something memorable.
I also enjoy the section about the moon in astrological signs--the witch's personal moon sign influences her practice, as well as each sign has influence over spells. She thoroughly explains the Waxing, Full, Waning and dark moon phases. There's a section explaining each full moon and its according celebration. There's also a section of spells and rituals to perform according to moon phase. There's also a section in the back with lists of appropriate plants & herbs, stones, colors and days of the week. She provides easy-to-follow information for making your magic work the best way it can. An important book to have in your spiritual collection.
