Firstly, let me start by saying that the Postal Service has let me down (again) so I'll have to postpone the post that I had planned (again!!). However, all is not lost, because as fate has it, today is the First Quarter of the Waxing Moon so I thought that I'd explore this whith you.
The Waxing Moon is the period of time in the moon cycle that ranges from The New Moon (Day 4) to the Full Moon (Day 14). The First Quarter happens to be today! (If you choose to follow the moon cycle, it is worth noting that although the First Quarter in this one is the 15 September 2010 - it probably won't be the same in 2011!)
OK, so what does the Waxing Moon mean to you and I? Well, The Waxing Moon is associated with The Maiden stage of the Triple Goddess, and similarly to her, It is a time for things to grow! (Nature, New Projects, New Ventures etc). The Waxing Moon is also associated to the following;
- Positive Change
- Increasing Power
- Connecting People
- Health and Fitness.
If you aren't already, following the moon can be very rewarding both in your everyday life and your magical life. Different phases of the moon bring different energies, and we don't have to be in an Esbat (Full Moon) to harness it!!
If anyone else has anything to add on this (or any other subject!) feel free to comment! I get lots of emails at my "wiccantogether" inbox (Mage Moonshine) but for everyone to benefit, please sign up and comment on here - it literally only takes a few minutes, and you could be helping newcomers (as well as the more experienced of us!) That doesn't mean to say that you can't continue to email me though - I love hearing from you all!
Anyway, Until next time!
