Dark/Black Moon (3-1 days before the New Moon) This is the time where you cannot see the moon at all, not even in the early morning or evening, it seems to be completely absent. This is a time to do a lot of internal work. The worse you feel emotionally, the better your outcome will be as your need is even greater. This is a “rebirth” moon, to find the darker side in yourself and understand/cleanse yourself. This is a time where we face those things inside ourselves that we wish weren’t there. Shame, guilt, negative traits etc. . .This is where you find the “seeds” to perform your next moon magic for new beginnings.

New Moon This is when the sun and moon are in the same place or they are in the same degree of the same sign. Workings can be done on the day of the new moon and three days after. This is a moon for new beginnings.

Crescent Moon This is a good time to do any magical workings that need action.

Waxing Moon (1st Quarter - half moon) Now is the time to bring magic to the new ideas and new beginnings, of building and growth. This is the time that we focus on bringing things to us, such as a better job, new love, or increased financial security.

Gibbous Moon Evaluate the new growth in your life. See what is working and eliminate what is not.

Full Moon The full moon is extremely powerful. Many rituals are performed now as the magic is at it’s height. This moon can be used for any type of magic. Magic can be used three days prior, day of and three days following the full moon.
Cleanse and Charge
Oils, herbs , crystals and any personal items can be cleansed and charged with energy under the Full Moon’s light.

Disseminating Moon Time for getting rid of bad habits.

Waning Moon(3rdQuarter - half moon) This moon is also used to rid any type of negativity in one’s life, whether it be physical (addiction/food) or emotional.

Blue Moon A blue moon occurs when there are two full moons in one month, making thirteen moons in one calendar year, or the third full moon in a season containing four full moons. Any type of moon magic can be done at this time.

This is brilliant. I really wanted to make more of the esbats this year, and this will more than allow me to do that.
