Monthly Moons

Please note: Lunar Names may differ from region to region, or various Pagan paths...

January -- Wolf Moon or Cold Moon: This is a good time to work on magic related to protection, both physical and spiritual. Use this time to develop your inner self, and advance spiritually, becoming closer to the higher aspects of your deities.

February -- Storm Moon: This is a good time to do magick related to the protection of your home against natural disasters and storms. Witches quite often call upon the aid of Salamanders - spirits of fire.

March -- Chaste Moon: Excellent time to work spells of self acceptance or the declaration to await for true love.

April -- Seed Moon: Now is the time to plant your herb garden for magickal purposes. Also, use this time to commune with the mother aspect of the Goddess.

May -- Hare Moon or Flower Moon: The rebirth of the Earth is upon us... this is a good time to attune with this magickal creature.

June -- Dryad Moon or Sun Moon: Dryads are the elemental life force of trees; each tree has it's own guardian dryad. Now is the time to commune with your garden dryads and leave offerings.

July -- Mead Moon or Blessing Moon: The Earth's fertility is evident as the fields rippen. Mead is known as an ancient elixir of the Gods and was used by witches due to it's intoxicating effect to aid in the magickal workings and communion with the Gods.

August -- Wyrt or Wort Moon: Meaning "plant". Now is a good time to converse with the Green Man. Perhaps plant an offering in your garden to honour him.

September -- Barley Moon or Harvest Moon: The sacred harvests have begun. THis is a good time to work on spiritual and physical health.

October -- Blood Moon or Shedding Moon: This is the time when the veil between worlds is the thinnest. Commune with your ancestors or use this time for spiritual growth. Pay attention to the messages sent to you in your dreams.

November -- Snow Moon or Mourning Moon: A time of release... get rid of the exess baggage you have been carrying, then you can experience the joy that the future holds. Strengthen your connection with your Deities.

December -- Oak Moon or Winter Moon: Now is the time for friendship and compassion... reach out to those in need; take your good fortune and share with others. Be reminded of the Oak King's return.
