Best Moon For Love Spell. Magic spells and root work that are worked to increase or expand something — love spells to draw someone to you, money spells to attract wealth, Crown of Success spells to advance a career and bring you the most recognition on the job or in school, spells to increase business or draw customers to your shop, and honey jar spells to sweeten someone to you — are often begun or worked entirely while the moon is waxing or growing bigger in apparent size. Folks who want their hair to grow thick and fast cut their hair when the moon is waxing. People plant crops that are grown for their leaves, flowers, or seeds during the waxing moon.
Magic spells and conjure jobs that are worked to decrease or diminish something — separation spells and Break Up spells to end a love affair, Hot Foot spells to drive away an unwanted neighbor, Uncrossing spells to take off crossed conditions, and spells for the removal of disease — are often begun or worked entirely when the moon is waning or growing smaller in apparent size. Folks who want to keep a hairdo and slow down their hair growth cut their hair when the moon is waning. People plant crops that are grown for their roots during the waning moon.
Not everyone times their magic spells or takes their hoodoo ritual baths or plants their garden by the moon, but if you want to do so, you not only need to know how to work with the moon’s influences, you need to know the cycles of the moon itself. The Moon goes through an entire cycle of waxing and waning about every 29 days. This is called a Lunar Month or Lunation.
WAXING MOON SPELL
Let’s start with a Waxing Crescent Moon, the kind that looks like a Man in a Moon drawing or a cute Christmas tree ornament with a smiling face and a long white beard. When the Moon is a Waxing Crescent; the dark side is to your left, more or less, and the bright Crescent is to your right. (Sometimes the Moon is tipped a little, so it may not be exactly right or left, but you will know what i mean if you go outside and look at it.) You can use this time to perform waxing, drawing, increasing, or growth spells.
The Waxing Crescent Moon
rises after sunrise and sets after sunset —
it is only seen in the night sky for a short time after the sun goes down.
Every night the Moon rises in the East a little later and the thickness of the Waxing Crescent gets fatter, until the shape of the Moon is half a circle. This is the First Quarter, also called by some people the Waxing Half Moon. It is dark on the left and bright on the right. You can continue to do waxing, drawing, increasing, or growth spells. The Waxing First Quarter Moon
rises about at noon
and sets about at midnight. After that, the Moon starts to look like it is pregnant — it is perfectly round on the right side, but bulged out past half-way on the left. This is the Waxing Gibbous Moon. You can continue to do waxing, drawing, increasing, or growth spells. The Waxing Gibbous Moon
rises in the middle of the afternoon
and sets before well before sunrise.
FULL MOON SPELL
It takes about 14 days of growing bigger for the moon to grow or wax completely full — that night you will see the Full Moon rise as a perfect circular disk. This is the Light of the Moon, and it is reserved for light works and dedications to benevolent lunar deities. It is used for celebrations and prayers for peace.
The Full Moon
rises almost exactly at sunset
and sets almost exactly at the next sunrise.
