I am curious about Magic, Ritual and the phases of the moon. I have noticed that today the moon is at 5% and waning. I know the Moon is a powerful player in Magic and Ritual, but I’m wondering about your thoughts on the phases of the Moon. What is different when the Moon is waxing? When it is waning? When there is no Moon? I am most curious to hear your personal opinions on these matters and whether you can attest to the power of the Moon in its several phases, and whether you follow conventional wisdom when it comes to the Moon. I beg your pardon if my lack of knowledge about Wicca is blatantly obvious.
