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.

Moon Powder

This can be used for scattering around candles, placing in poppets, adding to charm bags, etc

Exact amounts depend on how much you want to make

Grind together equal amounts of sandalwood, lemon peel and poppy. Add a pinch of bladderwrack, grind into a powder. To add more fragrance, you can add a few drops of any of the following essential oils : sandalwood, lemon or lily fragrance oil. Mix it all together and let it dry before using.

New Moon Incense
equal parts of anise, camphor, wormwood & lavender (might want to use just a pinch of camphor, it's very strong)

 

 DARK MOON INCENSE: 1/4-1/2 cup base, 1 tspn calamus, 1/2 tspn each of eucalyptus,juniper and patchouli, 10-15 drops of Dark Moon oil. Make this three nights before the New Moon. Allow it to sit outside for each of those three nights, but do not allow sunlight to touch it.

FULL MOON INCENSE: 1/4-1/2 cup base, 1 tspn each of willow bark and jasmine blossoms, 1/2 tspn each of white sandalwood and lemon peel. 10-15 drops of Full Moon oil. Make this on the night of the Full Moon, allow it to sit in the Full Moon light for a few hours to finish charging.

See me.
I am your child.
At this, the appointed hour,
I stand before you and reach out with my whole heart to the full moon.
Hear my words as they rise among the stars
And at night, when my body lies resting, whisper to my spirit.
Teach me secrets yet revealed...
Fill me with wisdom...
Enfold me in your power...
Keeper of the mysteries of the moon,
Hear these words and recall the ancient promise that
All who seek your presence shall find your blessings.
At this, the appointed hour,
I stand before you and reach out with my whole heart to the full moon.
I am your child.
See me.

Moon Prayer


Lady Moon, your light has just returned,
For the cycle of your power.
Maiden, mistress of new beginnings and youth,
Your light shine down upon the earth.
Upon night's darkest cloak,
Let your mark be spread for all to see,
Glowing ever stronger in the sky.
Tonight let your powers of new beginnings,
Wash away the follies of last cycle.
Seep away my weariness and sorrows.
Fill me to the brim with strength and hope,
Replace faded dreams with new,
And give me the endurance to carry on.
Goddess in the sky, look down upon me,
Your Witch, Sorceress and Priestess,
In your presence, gathers here.
As the moon moves through its cycles,
May the blessing of the Maiden,
Remain strong and surround us.
In the name of the Threefold Goddess,
So mote it be.

Full Cold Moon (December)

This is the month when the winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark. This full Moon is also called the Long Nights Moon by some Native American tribes.

During this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule.

The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long, and because the Moon is above the horizon for a long time.

The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun.

Magickal Moon

Magickal Moon with a light so bright
Watch over us all and protect us through the night

When you're large and full of grace
Even when we can barely see your face

We know you are always there
Your magick fills the air

Waning and waxing as the nights come and go
Feeling that mystic tug and tow

Abundance and blessings you give without take
Please accept these prayers we now make

Our words we send to thee with love
We cast them to you and the heavens above

Magickal Moon in the night
Thank you for the dreams, the visions, the second sight

A blessing at the end of each day
You light the darkness in a loving and magickal way

Carrying with you the secrets from ancient times gone by
Your presence is felt beneath the starry night sky

Magickal Moon thank you for your love, thank you for your light
Thank you for watching over us every single 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.
