Spell Timing – When is the Best Time to Cast Magic Spells?

Spell timing and choosing the right day to cast a spell does not need to be a long and involved process. Magic is a field of few true guarantees, and it gives a surprising amount of forgiveness once you have honed your skills properly. Above all else, it is important to keep experimenting to find out what works best for you. The alignment of the stars and planets and the shifting phases of the moon charge your spells with distinctive energies unique to each celestial body.

Much of it relates to planetary energy that you can harness by casting spells on certain days. This article explains the importance of moon phases, the waxing and waning of days, the seasons, best days of the week, Solstices and Equinoxes, Signs of the Zodiac, and all the Full Moons.

When you want to perform magic on a particular day, you must plan ahead. You must know which days work best for your situation to be confident the magic will have maximal potency. In some cases, you must plan far ahead, such as planning your spell on the Winter Solstice, which only comes once a year.

Spell Timing and Choosing the Best Phase of the Moon

During the time taken by the Moon to revolve around the earth every 27.3 days, it goes through various phases. The magic of the Moon has a significant role in the Wicca religion. The rituals vary with the phases, known as the Maiden or the waxing moon, Mother or the full moon, and Crone or the waning moon. The Maiden, Mother, and the Crone symbolize the faces of the Goddess. The Maiden represents sensuality and new beginnings; the Mother represents fulfillment, liberality, and fertility, while the Crone connotes intelligence, respite, and consideration.

Moon Phases


The New Moon

New MoonThe lunar cycle begins with the new moon. The moon is in line with the earth and the sun and is barely visible in the sky. This is to be a time of rejuvenation and new life. Spells involving new beginnings, health, beauty, new employment, or personal improvement are best done at this phase of the moon. They all represent newness and youth and are aptly represented in the new moon phase, which is when the lunar cycle starts.

The Waxing Moon

Waxing MoonThe next phase of the moon is the waxing phase. The moon gets a bit bigger every night but is not at the full moon phase. Spells that work well during these phases of the moon include spells related to motivation, friendship, courage, inspiration, healing, elemental magic, or luck. These are all positive spells, reflecting the growing moon and its positivity during this time.

Powers of the Waxing Moon

Regardless of whether you are looking to get pregnant, find a job, start a relationship, or plant a new garden, you will always be best served by starting at the new moon and progressing through the waxing phase. As the moon grows larger, it is said unseen forces and their impact on the world increase. Therefore, if you are trying to attract or manifest something new in your life, carrying out rituals on the waxing moon will be of most help.

Full MoonThe most powerful phase of the moon is around the time or at the specific time of the full moon. Do powerful spells at the height of the full moon, and you are sure to have success. You can get about the same energy if you don’t have time on the actual full moon day if you do your spells two days before or two days after the full moon. During this lunar cycle, the spells that work best include fertility spells, romance and love spells, spells related to artistry and art projects, psychic ability spells, and decision-making spells. You can receive guidance at the time of the full moon and do spells of completion at the full moon.

The Waning Moon

Waning MoonThe waning moon means the moon is getting smaller again. Each day, the moon shrinks a little bit more. This is the time to get rid of things you do not want to have around in your life. It is time to get rid of old ways or suppress bad habits, such as eating habits, drug addictions, and smoking. You can also end worries and troubles during this time. Relationships can best be terminated during the waning moon.

Powers of the Waning Moon

Typically, the waning moon is a time to release things, banish them, or make them as small as possible. Since the light from the moon grows less each night, you can use this magical time to send all your problems along with it. Depending on the situation, you can also use the waning moon to retreat inward and gain insight. This may include searching the darker aspects of self for the source of various problems. Needless to say, if you pick up or suspect negative influences from other people, you can also use the waning moon to block their influence or completely remove it from your life.

Cast spells for: getting rid of a habit, addictions (such as smoking, drugs, etc.), banishing worries and troubles, breaking up relationships, ending relationships, ending friendships. Removal of negative feelings, emotions, spiritual blockages, diseases, and ailments. It is the best time to break a curse, an evil eye, or any other spell.

It is suited for the same spells listed in the full moon phase. Click here for the upcoming Blue Moons.


Dark of the Moon

The “dark of the moon” is the three days before the new moon. Many witches ignore the dark of the moon, but this is actually considered a powerful time. It is a time of healing, dreaming of the future, and retreat.
