Moon Day - a day of Remembering and Feeling
Phases of the Moon and Their Psychic Associations:
The different phases of the moon do have an effect on your psychic talents. While the Sun is in the Scorpio sign we might be noticing that we are getting more 'psychic' happenings... so let's see what the Sun's partner, the Moon, is going to be doing to aid these feelings. Here is the information, along with tips for working with your divinatory tools, such as runes or the tarot. Consider how this lunar phase/psychic information will affect even more so when cast on a Monday. It will all depend on what phase the moon is in when you cast, which means you have lots to learn and plenty experiement with. There are many layers to witchery and magick. The best way to up your game and to increase your skills is to practice, experiement and see how the magick works for you.
First Quarter: (New Moon to the Waxing Half Moon) Now is the time when your psychic power is starting to build; you may feel more 'tuned in' and more compassionate and sensitive to other people's emotions. Your dreams and their divinatory meanings become clearer. You may notice that your animal allies, or totem animals, show up more in your life, so pay attention to their messages. Work your divinatory tools now to get a clear picture of what is beginning to unfold in your life at the present time.
Second Quarter: (Waxing half moon to the Full Moon) During this lunar phase, your emotions and senses get turned up to 'high'. (Think of it as riding a psychic wave of sorts: it builds as the full moon gets closer, peaks, and then you start to ride downward.) Precognitive dreaming is more likely to happen during this particular lunar phase. At the full moon phase itself, you will probably notice everything in a more detailed and magickal way, so work with it when it hits. Intuition and clairvoyance abilities will peak as the moon waxes to full. Employ your favorite divinatory tools now to see the past, present and future.
Third Quarter: (day after the full moon until the waning half moon) As the moon wanes, the focus begins to turn within. Pay attention to your inner voice - your instinct and gut hunches. This is not the time to ignore that inner monologue. You may find that you are 'hearing between the lines,' meaning you are hearing or sensing what is unspolen, so think before you speak. Ride the back of this wave of lunar energy and realize that the energies around you can be used to your benefit. Tune in to your own spirit and meditate. Work with divinatory tools now to see what is hidden from you.
Fourth Quarter: (waning half moon until the new moon) At this point of the moon phase, some folks may find that their psychic talents to on holiday, or you may notice that they come howling in with an all-out assult on your senses. The reason for this is that during this last waning phase, all psychic work turns within. This often forces a person to contemplation, and it nudges them into turning their psychic abilities and all that focus within. Then they gain the opportunity for self-discovery. Work with your divinatory tools now to gain an appreciation for what events and people have led you to this point of your life. By looking to the past, we can acquire a good overview on what has brought us to the point we are standing at now. Then we may gain understanding, wisdom, and insight.
