Wiccan Cycles of the Moon
Each phase of the moon offers powerful energy for use in ritual work and witchcraft. This article will acquaint you with what the moon cycles look like, when they occur, and what types of witchcraft (summoning or banishing) they support.
Wiccan Full Corn Moon of July
In Britain, "corn" is a term for all cereal crops such as wheat and barley, but in the United States, corn means maize. Celebrate both meanings with the July full Corn Moon, which marks the first shift into the harvest season as you pick ripe maize.
Wiccan Full Flower Moon of May
As in gardening, when you bring forth the first green shoots of your spiritual and worldly projects, you must thin out the scrawnier seedlings to make room for the plants with the most potential.
Wiccan Full Honey Moon of June
The June full moon is the Honey Moon. Now is the time to feel most alive and to give in to the gods-blessed urge to play and enjoy ourselves. We should turn our attention to romance, love, sex, and worldly pleasures.
Wiccan Full Sap Moon of March
The March full moon is the Sap Moon. For Wiccans, March is a time of unpredictability, shifting of the seasons, and surging energy. Now the sap is rising in the trees and the spring equinox is at hand. You must choose, organize, and bless your upcoming projects.
Wiccan Full Seed Moon of April
The magic you work during the month of the Seed Moon is very physically and emotionally intense. This month involves a huge revving up of energy as compared to the slower months that preceded it.
Wiccan Full Storm Moon of February
The February full moon is the Storm Moon. This is a raw, blustery time of year in which the snow can return with a vengeance. For Wiccans, February is a month of beginnings and renewal as celebrated with the Imbolc sabbat.
Wiccan Full Wolf Moon of January
The January full moon is the Wolf Moon. This is a point of great stillness when the cold has frozen the ground and the water as hard as stone. For Wiccans, this is a time of waiting, endurance, and survival – but great potential is building.
