The powerful effects of the seasons can also, according to some Earth magicians, subtly affect magickal workings. Traditionally, these types of magic are performed during these seasons:
SPRING A time for healing; purification spring cleaning is one survival of this); psychic awareness; paying bills; fertility; planting magickal gardens; & ecological rituals. Air magic.
SUMMER A time for love, marriage, friendship, beauty, protection, courage, magickal energy, physical energy, & strength. Fire magic.
AUTUMN A time for money, employment, new possessions (including cars & homes). Water magic.
WINTER A time for banishments of disease, habits & addictions, seeking past lives. This is a time for introspection, meditation, reading, & magickal exercises designed to renew the magician for the coming spring. Earth magic.
Some magicians may wait months for the sun to enter the proper sign of the Zodiac. This is fine for major workings but unrealistic for those who are working everyday magic. However, there are other solar cycles worth following... if you have the time. If not, don't wait.
SUNRISE Day begins as light stretches out from the eastern horizon. This is an excellent time to perform rituals involving purification, business success, study, employment, breaking addictions of all kinds, travel, releasing guilt & jealousy, healing diseases, & the conscious mind.
NOON The sun shines far above at full strength. This is fine for all sunrise ritual purposes, as well as those that involve magickal energy, physical energy & strength, protection, money & courage.
SUNSET The sun slips below the western horizon, signaling the time for breaking addictions, weight-loss, banishing misery & pain, transforming anguish & negative habits.
NIGHT The sun is out of sight. This is the drowsy time for beauty, dreams, psychic dreams, psychic awareness, spirituality, sleep, sex, purification, love, friendships, peace, releasing stress, healing wounds.
The moon waxes & wanes each month, rising an hour or so later during each twenty-four hour period. When it is full, it rises as the sun sets. There are different types of spells traditionally performed at the phases of the moon. More complicated patterns exist, relating to the specific day of each lunar month, but these methods are rarely followed today. The Moon's phases & the types of magic appropriate to them are:
WAXING MOON (From New to Full) When the Moon is waxing it is a time for beginnings, health & healing, psychic awareness, beauty, fertility & all positive magickal workings.
FULL MOON All positive magickal spells are performed beneath the potent glow of the Full Moon, including protection, love, healing, purification, psychic awareness, money & travel.
WANING MOON (From Full to New) This is the time for banishments of habits, addictions, disease & negative thoughts. jealousy, guilt, & hurts are released under the waning Moon. The old is swept away to make room for the new.
LIGHTNING STORMS are periods of intense energy. All spells cast during storms will be empowered by them, and may prove to be more effective. Protection rituals are ideal at these times.
RAINSTORMS are fine for purification, love, compassion, friendship, beauty rituals, & releasing guilt & jealousy.
SNOWSTORMS are the time for gentle magic, purification, & stilling emotions. release unrequited love.
HEAVY WINDS empower rites designed to break addictions, assist study, & travel spells.
SEARING HOT DAY charge rites of protection, courage, & energy.
SOLAR & LUNAR ECLIPSES are dramatic moments both for their observers as well as for magicians. In the past, magicians were urged not to perform magic during eclipses. Today, many natural magicians use the suggestive power of an eclipse to fuel spells involving banishments, including the destruction of disease. These have been some timing suggestions. Let them be guides, not shackles!
METEOR SHOWERS are a great time for powers which require help from above as well as a lot of power.
RAINBOWS are great for balancing, repairing, healing, protection and anything to do with Chakras. It is a time of great power.
Many celebrations in history began or ended at a specific time because of the potent symbolism that time evoked for the participants, or because of other associated astrological influences.
Daylight hours are best for matters of the conscious mind, including magic for leadership, intelligence and all cognitive functions. The Sun is a welcome friend to chase any shadows that may be hiding in our lives. It is regarded as a beneficial sign of divine blessing when it shines on any special occasion. Mystical pursuits during daylight hours can be empowered when combined with a southerly wind.
The intuitive, emotional self, maternal nature, healing, fertility, and Moon magic area all part of the charm of the night. Wishing on stars, dreams, the eternal nature of the spirit, and ancient mysteries come into play once the Sun has set. If your observance can incorporate the west wind, all the better. This breeze is filled with flowing water and peacefulness.
Beginning any ritual, spell or celebration at dawn commemorates a new beginning, freshens, warmth and renewed hope. An especially potent time for Spring observances. Magic performed at dawn can also be accentuated by working with an easterly wind, blowing from the horizon where the Sun rises.
Closing and ending are the messages dusk brings. But this finality is not without promise. Dusk marks a temporary change toward darkness. It is a time to look within oneself and ponder universal truths. It is an excellent time to perform rites which mark the passage of a loved one, intense personal transitions, or to mark the end of any cycle. Magic performed at dusk is aided by the northerly wind, which is cool, brining heated matters to rest and an opportunity to reconsider our actions.
