Magickal Times

THE SEASONS
The powerful effects of the seasons can also, according to some Earth
magicians, subtly affect magickal workings. Traditionally, these types of
magick are performed during these seasons:

SPRING: A time for healing; purification spring cleaning is one survival of
this); psychic awareness; paying bills; fertility; planting magickal
gardens; & ecological rituals. Air magick.

SUMMER: A time for love, marriage, friendship, beauty, protection, courage,
magickal energy, physical energy, & strength. Fire magick.

AUTUMN: A time for money, employment, new possessions (including cars &
homes). Water magick.

WINTER: A time for banishments of disease, habits & addictions, seeking past
lives. This is a time for introspection, meditation, reading, & magickal
exercises designed to renew the magician for the coming spring. Earth
magick.

SPECIAL TIMES

LIGHTNING STORMS: are periods of intense energy. All spells cast during
storms will be empowered by them, and may prove to be more effective.
Protection rituals are ideal at these times.
RAINSTORMS: are fine for purification, love, compassion, friendship, beauty
rituals, & releasing guilt & jealousy.
SNOWSTORMS: are the time for gentle magick, purification, & stilling
emotions. release unrequited love.
HEAVY WINDS: empower rites designed to break addictions, assist study, &
travel spells.
SEARING HOT DAY: charge rites of protection, courage, & energy.
SOLAR & LUNAR ECLIPSES: are dramatic moments both for their observers as
well as for magicians. In the past, magicians were urged not to perform
magick during eclipses. Today, many natural magicians use the suggestive
power of
an eclipse to fuel spells involving banishments, including the destruction
of
disease. These have been some timing suggestions. Let them be guides, not
shackles!
THE SUN
Some magicians may wait months for the sun to enter the proper sign of the
Zodiac. This is fine for major workings but unrealistic for those who are
working everyday magick. However, there are other solar cycles worth
following… if you have the time. If not, don’t wait.
SUNRISE: Day begins as light stretches out from the eastern horizon. This is
an excellent time to perform rituals involving purification, business
success, study, employment, breaking addictions of all kinds, travel,
releasing guilt & jealousy, healing diseases, & the conscious mind.
NOON: The sun shines far above at full strength. This is fine for all
sunrise ritual purposes, as well as those that involve magickal energy,
physical energy & strength, protection, money & courage.
SUNSET: The sun slips below the western horizon, signaling the time for
breaking addictions, weight-loss, banishing misery & pain, transforming
anguish & negative habits.
NIGHT: The sun is out of sight. This is the drowsy time for beauty, dreams,
psychic dreams, psychic awareness, spirituality, sleep, sex, purification,
love, friendships, peace, releasing stress, healing wounds.
THE MOON
The moon waxes & wanes each month, rising an hour or so later during each
twenty-four hour period. When it is full, it rises as the sun sets. There
are different types of spells traditionally performed at the phases of the
moon.
More complicated patterns exist, relating to the specific day of each lunar
month, but these methods are rarely followed today. The Moon’s phases & the
types of magick appropriate to them are:
WAXING MOON: (From New to Full) When the Moon is waxing it is a time for
beginnings, health & healing, psychic awareness, beauty, fertility & all
positive magickal workings.
FULL MOON: All positive magickal spells are performed beneath the potent
glow of the Full Moon, including protection, love, healing, purification,
psychic awareness, money & travel.
WANING MOON: (From Full to New) This is the time for banishments of habits,
addictions, disease & negative thoughts. jealousy, guilt, & hurts are
released under the waning Moon. The old is swept away to make room for the
new.
