New Moon February 15th 2018 in Aquarius

Aquarius - Urania's Mirror

The February 2018 New Moon in Aquarius occurs at 4:05 PM EST on Thursday, February 15th. However, the Moon goes void-of-course at the exact same time, meaning you will need to observe this Full Moon sooner rather than later. The good news is that the Moon is in Aquarius all day February 14th, and it enters Aquarius at 10:11 AM on Tuesday, February 13th, so it will essentially be in Aquarius for two full days. This gives us plenty of time to work with this New Moon. This information is also detailed in my February 2018 Cosmic Concerns post and is listed below.

New Moon February 2018 Timing

  • February 13th, Tuesday: Moon enters Aquarius 10:11 AM
  • February 14th, Wednesday: Moon is in Aquarius all day
  • February 15th, Thursday: New Moon at 4:05 PM, void-of-course 4:05 PM, enters Pisces 9:42 PM

Practically speaking, all this means you can do your New Moon ritual after 10 AM on the 13th, any time on the 14th (recommended), or before 4 PM on the 15th.

The two week manifestation point for this New Moon is on Thursday, March 1st 2018 with the Full Worm Moon in Virgo. The six month manifestation point is on Friday, July 27th 2018 with the Full Moon in Aquarius. This New Moon marks the end up the Lunar Year, with the Lunar New Year occurring on February 16th and the year of the Dog. 

My guide, Witch’s Guide to New Moon Magick, can be found on the site here; this post is a companion to that guide. If you’re new to Moon magick that’s a great place to begin.

New Moon in Aquarius

Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac, a Fixed, and an Air sign that is ruled by Uranus and Saturn. Aquarius is associated with social justice and responsibility. They are the zodiac’s rebel, and enjoy being unique and different. An Aquarius is more likely to have a lot of casual friendships, rather than a few deep ones, because they are a very social sign. Because of their confidence, they are able to make friends easily and are passionate about causes they believe in. No one loves a conspiracy theory more than an Aquarius, but maybe this is because they’re usually ahead of their time. Aquarius might be the water bearer, but any Aquarius would say that what they really carry is the truth! Saturn was the original ruler of the sign, but Uranus was also assigned to Aquarius after its discovery. This New Moon ushers in the Lunar New Year and is also a Solar Eclipse, which will give an extra boost of energy to your magick.

New Moon January 16th 2018 in Capricorn

The January 2018 New Moon in Capricorn occurs at 9:17 PM EST on Tuesday, January 16th. The Moon then goes void-of-course at 1:30 AM on the next day (you can also think of it at that evening). The good news is that the Moon is in Sagittarius all day January 15th and it enters Sagittarius at 2:42 PM on Sunday, January 14th, so it will essentially be in Sagittarius for two full days. This gives us plenty of time to work with this New Moon. This information is also detailed in my January 2018 Cosmic Concerns post and is listed below.

New Moon January 2018 Timing

  • January 14th, Sunday: Moon enters Capricorn at 2:42 PM
  • January 15th, Monday: Moon is in Capricorn all day
  • January 16th, Tuesday: Moon is in Capricorn all day; New Moon at 9:42 PM
  • January 17th, Wednesday: Moon goes void-of-course at 1:30 AM

Practically speaking, all this means you can do your New Moon ritual on the evening of the 16th (recommended), or any time on the 15th.

The two week manifestation point for this New Moon is on Wednesday, January 31st 2018 with the Full Blue Moon in Leo. The six month manifestation point is on Thursday, June 28th 2018 with the Full Moon in Capricorn.

My guide, Witch’s Guide to New Moon Magick, can be found on the site here; this post is a companion to that guide. If you’re new to Moon magick that’s a great place to begin.

New Moon in Capricorn

Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac, a Cardinal, and an Earth sign that is ruled by Saturn. Capricorn is associated with winter and is associated by my favorite mythological animal, the hippocampus. It is the zodiac’s hard worker, ambitious, and anxious for a project. They are goal-oriented to the point of stubbornness, and can be curmudgeonly thanks to ruling planet Saturn.

In fact, Saturn moved into Capricorn in December 2017, and will stay there until 2020, making this an excellent time to work with Capricorn energy. This sign wants to be at the top of the mountain, and this can make them come off as domineering or egotistical, but they’d say that’s just the price you pay for being the best. Capricorns can also be patient, level-headed, fair dealing, and full of common sense. Yet, they can occasionally be unforgiving, and crave recognition for their work. This is a down-to-Earth sign that, like all Earth signs, isn’t afraid of hard work; as a Cardinal sign, Capricorn initiates action.

New Moon December 18th 2017 in Sagittarius

Sagittarius Plate from Urania's Mirror

The December 2017 New Moon in Sagittarius occurs at 1:30 AM EST on Monday, December 18th. The Moon then goes void-of-course at 8:10 AM on the same day, so even though the New Moon is technically on the 18th, you will almost certainly observe it before (unless you’re a night owl). The Moon then enters Capricorn at 8:33 AM that same day. The good news is that the Moon is in Sagittarius all day December 16th and 17th, and it enters Sagittarius at 8:07 PM on Friday December 15th, so it will essentially be in Sagittarius for two full days. This gives us plenty of time to work with this New Moon. This information is also detailed in my December 2017 Cosmic Concerns and is listed below.

New Moon December 2017 Timing

  • December 15th, Friday: Moon enters Sagittarius 8:07 PM
  • December 16th, Saturday: Moon is in Sagittarius all day
  • December 17th, Sunday: Moon is in Sagittarius all day
  • December 18th, Monday: New Moon at 1:30 AM; Moon void-of-course 8:10 AM, enters Capricorn 8:33 AM

Practically speaking, all this means you can do your New Moon ritual after 8:07 PM on the 15th, or any time on the 16th or 17th (recommended). Remember that this New Moon is also during a Mercury Retrograde, so tread lightly when it comes to putting big plans into action.

New Moon November 18th 2017 in Scorpio

The November 2017 New Moon in Scorpio occurs at 6:42 AM EST on Saturday, November 18th, which is when the Moon also goes void-of-course (a not uncommon occurrence). The Moon then enters Sagittarius at 1:59 PM that same day. The good news is that the Moon is in Scorpio all day Friday November 17th, and it enters Scorpio at 3:19 AM on Thursday November 16th, so it will essentially be in Scorpio for two full days. This information is also detailed in my Cosmic Concerns: November 2017 post if you’d like to see this information as a list.

What this means is that you can do your New Moon ritual after 3:19 AM on the 16th (shouldn’t be too hard since I hope you’ll be sleeping then), or any time on the 17th.

The two week manifestation point for this New Moon is on Sunday, December 3rd with the Full Moon in Gemini. This also happens to be when Mercury goes Retrograde in Sagittarius, oh goody gumdrops. The six month manifestation point is on Sunday, April 29th 2018 with the Full Moon in Scorpio.

New Moon October 19th 2017 in Libra

The October 2017 New Moon in Libra occurs at 3:12 PM EST on Thursday, October 19th, which is when the Moon also goes void-of-course (thanks, Moon). The Moon then enters Scorpio at 9:41 PM that same day. The good news is that the Moon is in Libra all day Wednesday October 18th, and it enters Libra at 1:35 PM on Tuesday October 17th. This information is also detailed in my Cosmic Concerns: October 2017 post if you’d like to see this information as a list.

That means you can do your New Moon ritual after 1:35 PM on the 17th, any time on the 18th, or before 3:12 PM on the 19th. For charging, you can leave items out on the night or either the 17th or the 18th, but if you wait until the night of the 19th they will be charged with Scorpio energy, rather than Libra energy.

The two week manifestation point for this New Moon is on Saturday, November 4th with the New Moon in Taurus. The six month manifestation point is on Sunday, March 31st 2018 with the Full Moon in Libra. The March 2018 Full Moon in Libra will actually be a Blue Moon, which is the name for the second Full Moon in a calendar month.

A Witch’s Guide to New Moon Magick

This post is meant to be used as a companion to my New Moon posts. Additionally, I wrote a Witch’s Guide to Full Moon Magick post. Hopefully, with these posts combined, you’ll have the tools you need to conduct your esbats. Witchcraft is very personal, so pick and choose things that you like to do, test it out, change it, and find something that works for your Craft.

What is New Moon Magick?

A New Moon, in the literal sense, is the phase in the moon’s orbit around the Earth wherein the moon is ‘invisible’ to us here on the planet. This is because the Earth is blocking the light from the Sun from reflecting off of the Moon as it normally does. The moon will appear dark during the New Moon, which occurs every 28 days.

Magickally speaking, New Moons are used for setting intentions with a manifestation point at the next Full Moon which happens about two weeks later. Also, and way more importantly, there is a second, larger manifestation at the Full Moon that happens around six months (six lunations) later in the same sign. For example, if the New Moon is in Scorpio, there will be a Full Moon in two weeks in a different sign, and six months later there will be a Full Moon in Scorpio that completes the lunar cycle.

The New Moons is an opportunity to set intentions and put into action things that really matter, and that you truly feel are beneficial to you as a person. Also, since the cycle won’t be complete for six months, I believe it’s important to do a little divination as well.

A Witch’s Guide to Full Moon Magick

I’ve been writing Full and New Moon rituals for witches for over a year, but I have also been wanting to change how I write them for just as long. A lot of Full Moon and New Moon rituals that I write have a lot of the same components to them and, because of that, I’ve decided to take the framework I use and make a basic Full Moon Esbat that can be used any time. Witchcraft is very personal, so pick and choose things that you like to do, test it out, change it, and find something that works for your Craft.

What is Full Moon Magick?

A Full Moon ends a lunar cycle that last roughly six months (aka lunations) long. A New Moon is the beginning of the lunar cycle and each New Moon occurs in a specific sign of the zodiac. Two weeks after that New Moon there is a Full Moon in a different sign, but six lunations (months) after that there is a Full Moon in the same sign as the original New Moon. That Full Moon is the end of that lunar cycle. While New Moons are used for setting intentions, Full Moon are manifestation points. Full Moons are an excellent time for cleansing, charging, reflection, and spell work, all of which will be explained in more detail below.

Be aware that a lot of people do Moon work without being witches at all. Ezzie Spencer’s Lunar Abundance practice has nothing to do with witchcraft and is closer to The Secret. This guide, and all of my Moon Magick posts, are based on my own practice of witchcraft; while they can probably be used by anyone, they are designed specifically for witches. Hopefully, this guide can be used by any denomination of witch, but if anything feels like I’m excluding anyone, please leave a comment and I will do my best to remedy it.

The July 2017 New Moon in Leo occurs at 5:46 AM EST on Sunday July 23rd, and your New Moon ritual can be done anytime after 5:46 AM on the 23rd and all day Monday the 24th.

On Sunday the 25th the Moon goes void-of-course at 2:44 PM then enters Leo at 6:06 PM, but your New Moon ritual should be performed before then, ideally. A lot of other planets are in Cancer for this Moon as well, so expect a big wave a Cancer energy coming.

New Moons are used for setting intentions with a manifestation point at the next Full Moon which happens in about two weeks, August 7th for this New Moon. Also, and way more importantly, there is a second, larger manifestation at the Full Moon that happens around six months later in the same sign. For this New Moon its six month Full Moon will happen on January 31st 2018.

Tanabata Star Festival 2017

It’s hard to believe that it’s Tanabata once again, the year has flown by. Also known as the Star Festival, Tanabata occurs on the evening of July 7th to celebrate the one night that the stars Vega and Altair can be together. In China this festival is called Qixi Festival or The Festival to Plead for Skills which is held on the seventh day of the seventh month. Traditionally this was determined using a Lunar calendar, but more recently it has been celebrated using the Solar calendar. My Tanabata spell in 2016 was the first spell that I posted online, so it’s a bit of an anniversary for me as well.

Tanabata Spell for Witches

In celebration of that anniversary, the Tanabata Wish Spell that I wrote last year has been completely updated. It has been rewritten in a style that makes it easy to put in your Book of Shadows or Grimoire.

Tanabata 2017 Google Doodle

Stories of Tanabata

Additionally, one of my coven traditions is to tell different versions of the same seasonal story for each sabbat. In that same spirit there are many versions of the folktale “The Cowherd and the Weaver Girl” available; the moving story is the inspiration for Tanabata festivals in multiple cultures.
