The powers of the moon are vast and varied. They range from being used for healing, love, prosperity, protection, fertility, and more. In this article we will discuss what the powers of the moon are, and how you can harness their power for yourself.

The Moon has been associated with magic since ancient times. Some cultures believed that the moon was responsible for causing insanity.

In modern times, the moon has become associated with spirituality and mysticism. People believe that the moon affects our emotions, and that it influences us subconsciously.

Many cultures around the world associate the moon with various things such as death, rebirth, and fertility. For example, in India, the full moon is considered to be a time when ghosts come out to play.

Moon Magick And Gender

The moon is also associated with the feminine energy of the universe. This means that the moon is connected to women and femininity. Men will tend to work with the moon in a very different way from how women do.

Moon Spells

The moon is also linked to certain magical practices. One of these is called “lunar magick.” Lunar magick involves using the phases of the moon to cast spells.

For example, if you wanted to stop a bad habit, you could perform a spell during the waning phase of the moon. During this phase, the moon is getting smaller, which symbolizes the loss of something. Therefore, casting a spell during this phase will cause the need to perform that bad habit to diminish.

Another type of lunar spell is called “moon gazing.” When you gaze at the moon, you are connecting with the goddess within. This allows you to tap into her power, and you can use this connection to get answers to questions you may have.

The Powers Of The Moon

In many cultures around the globe, many magical practices revolve around the powers of the moon and the phases of the moon. Sometimes this involves using lunar imagery in spell work, as well as astrological charting. The moon has been associated with fertility and birth since ancient times, and even today some people still believe that women who become pregnant during new moon days often give birth to healthy babies.

In addition to having symbolic meaning, it is said that the moon gives magical power because it controls the tides. As the moon waxes, the waters rise, bringing forth growth and abundance. When the moon wanes, the waters recede, causing the earth to dry up and shrink.

The moon also rules over emotions. Its waning brings feelings of sadness and depression, and it makes one feel better when it waxes again.

Lunar magic is known to work best when performed under full-moon night, which is believed to produce the most beneficial results. 

As a general rule, the moon is associated with women and femininity. There is usually a feminine aspect to any magical operation involving the moon. Moreover, many lunar magical workings seem to require a female presence, especially those performed at certain times of the month. Other lunar influences include menstruation, pregnancy, and childbirth.

Some people believe that certain diseases can be cured by the power of the moon. In other places it is believed that the moon has the ability to heal wounds and even cure illnesses. Even in modern times, there are still many people who believe that the moon holds great powers.

As mentioned before, lunar phases can be used to enhance magical workings by invoking various energies that align with different moon cycles. In addition to the monthly cycle, there are many weekly and daily cycles connected with the moon. These include:

Waxing Moon: Emotional growth. Good for love spells, especially for female witches who are sensitive to emotional changes.

Full Moon: Intuition. Very helpful for divination. Bringing manifestations to fruition.

Waning Moon: Mental clarity. Great for healing spells and banishing negativity and bad habits.

New Moon: Fertility. It’s good for conception, but not so much for getting pregnant. Power. Useful for protection against negative energy.

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
