Moon Signs in Magic – Timing your Spells and Rituals

Moon Signs in Magic

Using Moon Signs to time your Spells and Magic

In contrast to the sun, which takes a year to go through all 12 signs of the zodiac, the moon only needs one month.

Therefore the moon “touches” all the signs of the zodiac for two to three days each month. The moon thus addresses the respective quality and brings different usable energies with it.

An important starting point for determining a magically favorable day for your spell-work is the zodiac sign in which the moon is at different times.

For example, a Moon in Virgo would be ideal for rituals related to communication. If the moon is waxing in Virgo, it’s a perfect time to improve communication, on the other hand, if the moon is in the waning phase, you should focus your work on letting go of communication problems or ban blockages.

The Moon Signs and Astrology

Many beginners in astrology believe that the only importance is their Sun Sign, which is only partly true. You cannot know your entire astrological horoscope without knowing both the Sun sign and the Moon sign, indicating exactly where all of the celestial bodies were positioned at the time of your birth. It is said that the Moon sign is what describes the person’s most inner qualities, from your emotions to your fears and vulnerabilities, as well as all traits and qualities that would be determined through your Moon sign. Even if you are not completely aware of your deepest, strongest feelings and emotions, your moon sign will give insight into all of these. Both your Sun and your Moon sign will help the astrologer get the best possible insight into your horoscope, which will help you get to know your true personal self.
