Magick for the Waxing Moon:
The moon is becoming larger in the sky, moving from the New Moon towards the Full Moon. Waxing Moon workings may be done from seven to fourteen days after the new moon.

The Goddess is in her Maiden aspect.
Magick for the Full Moon:
From fourteen to seventeen-and-a-half days after the new moon. A good time for rituals for protection and divination. Any working that needs extra power, such as help in finding love, healings for serious conditions, love, money, knowledge, legal undertakings, and dreams. This is a time of strength. It is a time for spells that transform, increase psychic ability, for fertility spells and invocation to lunar goddesses. An ideal time for rituals for prophecy, this is also the phase to use if you are unsure of the best phase for a working. The Goddess is in her Mother aspect and forms a perfect silvery sphere in the sky. Workings may be done from about 3 days before to 3 days after the actual full moon.

The moon is becoming smaller in the sky, moving from the Full Moon towards the New Moon. From three-and-a-half to ten-and-a-half days after the full moon. The waning moon is used for banishing magick, such as ridding oneself of addictions, illness or negativity. It is also a time of deep intuition and a good time for divination. The Goddess is in her Crone Aspect.
Dark Moon Magick:
The Moon is no longer visible to your eye. Workings may be done from about three days before the New moon until the time of the New Moon. The dark moon is a time for exploring our darkest recesses, understanding our angers and passions, and bringing justice. This is the strongest time for divination.
