The night of the new moon is the best time for prayers, spells, or any energy work to bring about new beginnings. In between the period of the new moon to the full moon, also known as the period of the waxing moon, spells for attracting more of the things you want in your life will have added power from the moon‘s energies.
The night of the full moon is potent with power for psychic work and developing your intuition. And, from the full moon to the next new moon, also known as the period of the waning moon, spells for getting rid of what you don’t want in your life will have added power from the moon‘s energies.
You don’t have to cast spells to make the moon‘s energies work for you. Saying a prayer or making a wish will do just as well.
It is also helpful to be aware of the moon phases, as the things you do will have more power if you schedule them accordingly. For example, launching a new business on the day of the new moon will be auspicious for your business. If you are seeking a promotion or a raise, meet with your superior during the period of the waxing moon, and so on.
Below is a list of dates for the new and full moons from July to December 2016 for easy reference:
New Moon: July 4th
