|The Moon: The Moon has a most powerful influence on Magick. Conduct a specific ritual during the phase most suited to the purpose:
The time of the waxing moon is used for magick influencing love, happiness and prosperity.
The full moon is the right for time fertility rites, calling upon the Moon Goddess. It positively influences our perception of the supernatural -- a great time for the advancement of extrasensory capabilites and for prophetic dreams.
The waning moon is the time for exorcism, to remove the influences of another's damaging spells and curses (remove those pesky love spells!), and break free from bad relationships.

|A word on Magick: The practise of Magick is an ancient art found everywhere, in every culture, in every corner of the globe. Magick, as I understand it, is tapping into the creative powers of nature, of the universe, and channelling this power toward one's goals. To effect magick, the practitioner must use it in total harmony with the laws of nature and their own being -- the mental as well as the physical. Fasting, ablutions and meditation are a common part of preparation. Fancy tools are really not much more than props ... the power is within each one of us.|
