Working with the Cycles

Timing your Spells

One of the most common questions I am asked is one of timing. ‘What is the best time to cast my spells?’

The simple answer is ANYTIME. However, there are some times that are seen as more powerful and as such, if we align ourselves with them, they can assist us in achieving greater success.

As we honour the earth and creation, we closely observe the cycles of nature as our guide. This includes moon cycles, seasonal changes, and where the sun is in the sky.

Witches traditionally work very closely with moon energy and this encompasses both moon phases and tides. You can simply check phase and tidal information with your local newspaper, weather channel or specialist website (go to the Resources Section on this site for some).
