I am rounding off my Moon Month with a discussion on moon magick. This actually ties in with my post, last week, on the moon’s personalities. I will also be mentioning what moon phase I am working with when I post spellwork on my Spells page.

Moon magick is not just setting up a ritual or a Circle. You can soak up the moon’s goodness by just sitting outside and enjoying the moonlight. I will often bless items by letting them sit outside during the full moon.

For May’s full moon, I have decided to do a slightly more formal ritual than my usual casual rite. I am using an idea from Wicca: A Guide For The Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham. I am toying with the idea of raising energy with chanting. I think that will depend on how many people are able to make it. Starhawk has some amazing group chants in Spiral Dance. Or I may use chakra chants.

The past four weeks have been a great reminder for me on how much I work with the Moon and all of her phases.
