Although we celebrate the New Moon and Full Moon with the most dramatic and formal rituals, there are actually 8 moon phases, quarters of quarters, and each has significance. Here are my interpretations of appropriate magical workings for each. Keep in mind that for me, all moon work begins at the New Moon, when the sky is dark. I think of this time as a clean slate.
As the moon reaches her fullest, most creative phase, so do you. As she disappears into the deepest depths of her darkness, so do you. As she prepares to reach for new beginnings in her crescent phase, so do you. Her essence is always with thee, for you carry her beauty, her light, her darkness and her power within your womb. ~Roslyne Sophia Breillat
