The Moon and Her Magick

The lunar phase is important in determining the best time for magic. There are basically two lunar phases: waxing moon (ideal time for positive magic) and waning moon (ideal time for banishing/negative magic, study, and meditation). In between you'll have the dark moon (the time of greatest power for banishing and negative magic) and the full moon (the time of greatest power for positive magic). Most witches and pagans work around these lunar phases. However, others, suggest a much more complicated subdivision of the moon phases.

Lunar Eclipses
Eclipses represent the perfect union of sun and moon. Any type of magic is acceptable.
There are 2 types of lunar eclipse:
Partial eclipse
Penumbral eclipse of the moon

Blue Moon
Your geographic location can make a difference to your experience of a Blue Moon. Depending on your longitude you may go through a date change prior to other locations which means the full moon is at the first of your new month and falls at the end of the preceding month somewhere else. The "blue" one is always the 2nd full moon in the same month. The regular full moons of each month all have their own individual names as follows: Moon after Yule, Wolf Moon, Lenten Moon, Egg Moon, Milk Moon, Flower Moon, Hay Moon, Grain Moon, Fruit Moon, Harvest Moon, Hunters' Moon and Moon Before Yule.
Historically the Blue Moon was considered unlucky and a real nuisance when it occurred at various times of the year and upset scheduling of church festivals. In love songs the Blue Moon is often a symbol of sadness and loneliness.
The first appearance in print of this expression goes back to the time of Shakespeare, when some folks felt that sometimes the moon visually appeared blue in the sky. Although the expression dates all that way back, it has only recently come to mean the second Full Moon in one month. Blue Moon seems to be a truly modern piece of folklore, old folklore it is not, but real folklore it is.

New moon, Dark moon.
Dark moon occurs either side of the new moon. The new moon is between the last of the waning moon and the beginning of the waxing moon. The new moon has the power of in-between, a time which is not a time, similar to midday, midnight etc. If doing a Dark Moon rite, the active part of the ritual should be a good 45 minutes out from the actual new moon as the energies can be erratic. Also the waning moon allows you to calm down and tune out.

Goddess of the Moon Prayer

Goddess of the moon -
Mother of the earth -
We pray to you now,
Bless us with mirth
And trust in our path
And show us the way
With no harm to any
Bring on these new days
We dance to you skyclad
In our hearts and souls
With two sacred passwords
To love and to know
We seek out your blessing
And revel in your love
Goddess of many
Bright lady above

Moon Phases

Full Moon - This the phase of the moon during which the most important spells are cast, as magic is much more powerful during this phase. Many people only consider the Full Moon to be the actual day that it is the fullest and marked on the calendar. The Moon actually can be influential for a seven day period, although the night of the Full Moon - when it is at its fullest - is best.

Waning Moon - This is phase, after the Full Moon, when the moon is decreasing in size of visibility. This phase is normally for spells that do away with things or make things go away, such as causing an enemy, a bad spirit, slander or gossip to go away.

New Moon - There is a short window of opportunity during the New Moon, which marks the transition between the Waning and Waxing Moons. This is usually a time of rest, although spell casting similar to that performed during the the Waning Moon may be performed.

Waxing Moon - This is the phase when the moon is increasing in size of visibility. Use this phase is for performing spells involving increase or gain, such as those for love, prosperity, power or material things.

Dream Magick

If you find you need a little help in lucid dreaming, or you want to learn the answer to a specific problem, this charm bag is a great tool. It soothes the waking mind and helps your sleeping mind to focus.

Make or buy a small draw-string bag about 1-2 inches deep. Put in a pinch or two of each of the following:

peppermint
cinnamon
lemon verbena
marigold
vervain
hops

During the full moon, put the bag together, then consecrate and charge it. Make certain it is tied tightly. Before sleep each night, rub the bag over your third eye (center of forehead) and concentrate on the question, problem or situation. Then place the bag under your pillow. Continue to concentrate on the situation as you drift off. When you wake, jot down whatever you remember in your dream journal. Your question should be answered within the first few nights. Remember dreams can be symbolic or literal.

This pouch can also help increase your skill at lucid dreaming, by keeping your mind focused on the fact that you are just dreaming.

Long Nights Moon

Just as the sun and moon were honoured at the time of the Strong Sun Moon for the strength of light, so once again we honour them during the moon with nights dominate. We have less sunlight now any other time. To celebrate the light, gather as many candles as you possibly can and arrange them in a circle. Use white and silver if you have them, as well as gold. Decorate your alter with celestial symbols and shapes: suns, moons, and stars.
Say:

Sister Moon, tempered light
Bringing Sun into the night
Darkness long, darkness deep
Moonlight strong, vigil keep
Light of stars, light of life
Cut the dark like a knife
Sister Moon, tempered light
Bringing Sun into the night

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
