Hexes And The Moon Phases

Please note that posts on this site may contain affiliate links

The moon phases should dictate what kind of magic you’re doing as a witch. Why? Because the moon phases each have their own correspondences. So if you’re looking to do hexes or curses, how will the moon phases change your spells?

Curses done during a waning crescent moon should focus on removing things from people. Black magic done at the time of a new moon should begin new negative experiences in a person’s life. And hexes performed during the waxing moon should intensify negativity in someone’s life.

Moon Phase Correspondences

You may not love the idea of cursing others or using black magic, but there could come a time when you’ll need to have this skill anyway. This table will tell you the themes of each moon phase:

Working With Hekate During The Full Moon

During the full moon, we call upon Hekate to assist us in clearing our past, releasing our fears, and opening ourselves to new possibilities. We ask her to help us gain clarity in our lives, to help us transform our inner worlds, and to allow us to move forward with courage and confidence.

It is said that Hekate helps us to overcome obstacles and challenges that stand in our way, and to achieve our goals. In addition to being a benevolent Goddess, she is also a fierce warrior. When we summon her, we invite her to help us take charge of our lives, to lead us into battle, and to fight for justice.

I am an eclectic witch - I've been practicing since 1974. As a student of the occult, working with astrology, tarot cards, runes, and numerology, I found that this was a very comprehensive and well written text on working with Hekate during the full moon. Highly recommended. - Gail Sager

Great read - a must have for anyone interested in working with the Goddess during the full moon! Highly recommended! - Luis Meyer
