|The lunar calendar
It takes 28 days for the moon to pass through each of the astrological signs in turn.
During these four weeks, she waxes to full glory, then wanes to darkness in which
state she stays for three days before appearing as a thin sliver of silver. During the
time when she is dark, many magic makers prefer not to cast any spells, choosing
instead to meditate, reflect and look ahead to the magic to be done when next the
moon lights up the night sky.
When the moon is waxing, it is an ideal time to cast spells that encourage new
beginnings. A full moon encourages fertility and fruitfulness. And a waning moon
helps spells aimed at easing a burden, be it to do with health or any other such
Aries (21 March – 20 April) is the ideal time for spells concerning new starts as the
moon now encourages energy and fresh ideas. And if leadership is an issue,
address it by casting a suitable spell during these 28 days.
Taurus (21 April – 20 May) is noted for being the dependant sign of the zodiac.
Now is the time to cast spells concerning prosperity. And as the sign is ruled by
Venus, spells cast to encourage love will benefit from that goddess’s power.
Gemini (21 May – 21 June) is associated with communication in all its forms,
making its lunar ascendancy the perfect time to cast spells concerning travel and
communication skills. Many professional writers find that their words flow with
particular fluency at this time of year, so perhaps budding authors should tap into
Gemini’s powers to cast spells aimed at getting that long-delayed project started at
Cancer (22 June – 22 July) has a nurturing nature often associated with the
feminine side of things. Now is the time to aim spells at family matters, friends,
emotional matters, health and the home. And as the moon rules Cancer, this
feminine energy is especially strong.
Leo (23 July – 22 August), the sign associated with boldness and courage,
emboldens the spell caster to make magic concerning success, wealth, recognition
and general health. Leo is a generous sign and is especially happy to lend its
power to newcomers to the art of making magic.
Virgo (23 August – 22 September) encourages self-improvement and is concerned
with the intellect, employment and health. Spells cast to encourage an abundant
harvest will not be wasted during Virgo’s ascendancy and as the sign is noted for
attention to detail, it’s a good time to cast spells aimed at clarifying the small print
Libra (23 September – 22 October) is noted for balance, so spells cast concerning
harmony, especially in personal relationships, are partic- ularly potent now. It’s
also a good time to cast spells to restore a friendship with someone who has fallen
out of favour. Libra is also a sign that smiles on energy, idealism, love, spirituality
and popularity, so spells cast concerning matters such as those should work well.
Scorpio (23 October – 22 November) is associated with desire and transformation.
Use its power to make magic concerning change, be it in your own life or someone
else’s (change for the good, needless to say). Sex is never far from a Scorpio’s
mind – and the energy involved in casting a spell concerning sexual matters will
not be wasted during these 28 days.
Sagittarius (23 November – 22 December) is the acknowledged explorer of the
astrological world. Tap into its power to explore the potency of spells concerning
travel, transcendence and wisdom, and for getting at the truth of a matter.
Capricorn (22 December – 20 January) is identified with ambition, achievement
and self-control, so this is a good time to cast spells to help you climb the ladder of
success in your career. It’s also a good time to think about spells concerning taking
on added responsibility, maybe a community project.
Aquarius (21 January – 19 February) promotes healing, higher thought and mental
health. These are also good days to cultivate new friendships. The heavenly water
carrier also aids spells that are aimed at increasing personal freedom and creative
Pisces (20 February – 20 March) is a compassionate sign and this is a good time
for healing spells. Those who have a talent for dream interpre- tation may well find
that their intuitive powers are especially strong during the four weeks of Pisces’
