The moon. Every witch keeps it in conscience. Nearly every religion seems to have something to say about it. In science, history, religion, even in architecture, the moon has come to show its importance and status. Babylonian astronomers in the 5th century BC recorded a lunar cycle, and back in 4th century BC, Chinese Astronomer Shi Shen created a guide regarding the prediction of lunar eclipses. Civilizations like the Han Dynasty thought the moon to be a driving force, while many Native American tribes associated it with female divinity. So, with all this in mind, how can we use and understand the positioning of the moon to better our witchcraft today?
First, we have to understand a lunation. A lunation is a roughly 30 day cycle, from new moon to new moon. The word moon actually comes from the word month. Ancestors used and understood the moon phases to tell time. Each phase lasts a few days to the naked eye, though the moon is really only in each phase for a brief second. It appears the moon stays in a certain phase due to the time buffer in which we on earth see the light. The New Moon represents the start of a new cycle.
So, exactly what does each cycle mean, and how does it correspond with the craft?
New Moon - The new moon is a time of new beginnings. The Sun and Moon are aligned, leaving the moon dark and invisible to our eyes on earth. It will also rise and set around the same time as the sun. It is a time to start new projects, jobs, friendships, and to seek new intentions. Starting a diet, trying to kick an old habit, or redecorating will all be made easier by the energy given by the New Moon. Wishing upon a New Moon is also a good way to bring in some luck.
Waxing Crescent - Also known as the ‘young moon,’ the crescent begins the move towards a full moon. A small, sliver shaped section of the moon is illuminated. Plans or goals that were made during the New Moon can be solidified and worked towards, and often clarified.
First Quarter - The first quarter moon is a small pause from the motivation and working to balance oneself out and discover possible mistakes and holes in plans and ideas we had made. Now is a time to focus and fine tune little things in your life. Meditation and introspective journeys are at hand.
Waxing Gibbous - Also known as the three quarter moon, the waxing gibbous is ¼ away from becoming the anticipated full moon. Spells for success and goal reaching work best, especially in relation to the project you’ve been working on. Think about positive spaces and constructive magic–bringing in money, romance, etc. If your project so far has failed, the Gibbous will help recharge it.
FULL MOON - The full moon. Esbat. Regarded highly as the best and most effective time to cast spells, lore and tales have surrounded the mysterious full moon for centuries. It is a time of heightened psychic awareness, in which everything comes together, including family, friends, plans, and ideas. In Wicca, the full moon is the mother’s moon, and in folklore, the full moon represents divine female power. Divining is especially powerful during a full moon. It is a perfect time to make Moon Water and to perform any exciting or lengthy spells you’ve been working on.
Waning Gibbous - As the waning begins, so does the shedding of old or toxic things in your life. Removing bad habits, curing illnesses, quitting bad jobs, ending addiction, or even breaking off relationships can be planned or started. This is also the time of the goddess Demeter.
Last Quarter - Continue banishing work here, especially focused on your emotions and negativity. Remember things you want to improve and save them for the upcoming new moon, but for now, simply make room for them.
Waning Crescent - The final waning phase before the start of a new cycle, now is a time to confront head on what is causing chaos in your life. A little hexing here and then, if such practice coheres with your beliefs, might just work out during this moon phase.

The Moon Tarot
The moon tarot invokes the unconscious, introspect, and discovery. The face of the moon is half seen, symbolizing pregnancy and the mystery of the soul. The rays of light represent creation and power, and are a vital symbol of life. The animals, perhaps a wolf or dog, sit opposite of a river, mouths lifting to howl at the moon. This can represent the cutting of ties with someone close, and is especially poignant in the idea of hiding or forgetting ones ancestry. A crustacean sits in blue water at height of a pond, symbolizing hidden emotions and sensitivity. The water flowing towards the moon along with the crustacean and dogs rising towards it can be seen as a unity of self. The water at the bottom, where the crustacean sits, is drawn in by the moon, evoking female cycles, as well as passage from life to death and vice versa.
This will most likely be updated and added to, but for now, here this is! I hope this can help somebody out.

Most to Least Intimidating Mars Signs
Aquarius Mars: Ice kings and queens right here. They’ll cut you off like you never existed. No shit talking, no arguing. You’re just dead in their book.
Scorpio Mars: Vindictive, manipulative, and borderline crazy when mad. They’ll sink your ship and their own trying to hit you where it hurts. These guys don’t give a shit once they hit a point and they will not forgive and forget.
Gemini Mars: Extremely spiteful and hateful when mad. It flips back and forth from forgiving to still pissed off. They will kill you with their words and ask why you’re dying.
Aries Mars: These guys are gonna be all up in your face. They don’t give a hoot what you think. They’ll rant and rave and blow up in a rage when upset. And then be over it seconds later while everybody around them is in shock.
Cancer Mars: Spiteful and emotionally turbulent. Slights will not be easily forgotten, but they tend to be apologetic when they know they’ve said something harsh.
Virgo Mars: They will pick you apart by your flaws and make you feel like the biggest idiot. One difficult part of how detail oriented Virgo is.
Capricorn Mars: They bottle up their anger so much and use it to help them power forward. Their grudges are long-lasting and you usually won’t even know a Capricorn Mars person dislikes you unless you get long silences because they just keep it so hidden. When they lose their temper it’s like an earthquake though - devastating and over quickly.
Taurus Mars: They hold a very intense grudge, but rarely do they do anything about it. Really just very stubborn and tend to latch on to their anger.
Sagittarius Mars: Really difficult to get a rise out of them, because they don’t care for negativity and will just run away from it. But they do have a tendency to pop off and own you with some very blunt arguing if pushed too far.
Leo Mars: Very relaxed Mars sign, but if pushed too far there can be quite an explosion from these guys.
Pisces Mars: Sensitive and prone to crying during disputes even if they’re not at fault. They’ll probably spend a lot of it apologizing and low-key manipulating you to feel bad for them.
Libra Mars: Not extremely intimidating. Tend to just want to smooth over the issues even if you caused it. They’re easily forgiving and don’t tend to be very harsh.

An excerpt from a journaling exercise and a shot from a hike I went on with a large magnolia flower in my backpack
What if there was an apocalypse but some people were really really in denial and optimistic and thinking everything will be back to normal soon?
Like they’d be foraging through the ruins of New York for supplies, shooting raiders in the face and saying “Man, this recession is really bad, huh?”
ARE YOU KIDDING ME
this post, plus that satire one about the increasingly ridiculous callout culture that slowly became more and more accurate
was anything going on in 2017??? did everyone randomly have prophetic visions????????
Another one from 2017 by @nullsynth
the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
turns out we had the 2020 vision after all
“the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls” is actually a really fucking metal quote and i will be using it in the future
@handoverthehands it’s from Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel. Referenced as well in Spirit of the Radio by Rush and again in Disturbed’s cover of the original.
And that in itself was a reference to the Book of Daniel from the bible, when the words of the prophet were written on the Babylonian palace walls.
In the real world, it’s not the kings and people in power who see the signs of doom, but the poor people in the subway, helpless to stop it.

Mercury Retrograde Through the Houses ☿💫
I get so many questions every mercury rx period about how it will influence someone specifically - so here I’ve laid out some things to look out for depending on which house mercury is transiting through for you! Remember it’s never my intention to scare/worry anyone - these are just things to keep in mind xx
*if you don’t know where mercury is transiting for you, you can go to astro.com > extended chart selection > natal chart and transits > enter a date within the rx period > find transiting mercury (not your natal)
- may have questions like: “am I happy with how I’m being perceived? am I pleased with how I’m coming across? does something in my image need changed?” the temptation to rush into things or jump to conclusions is strong. may be particularly clumsy, fidgety, or have issues stumbling over your words or being misunderstood.
- a time to keep an eye on your spending habits and make a financial plan for yourself going forward. what is really important to you? what do you value in yourself and in your life? you could find yourself reprioritizing. take a moment during this transit to pamper and appreciate yourself.
- give yourself extra time in your commute! expect delays and disruptions in your every day travel. miscommunications are likely with this transit as well, especially over text/email/dm/etc! take extra precaution with your phone/computer, as you could be more likely to misplace it or experience issues. save files often and reread what you’ve typed before sending!
- any old or unresolved family issues may show up during this transit. prepare to revisit childhood memories and bring what’s been in the shadows to light. this is also a good time to spring clean or rearrange your space! there could household repairs needed during this time - especially electrical or plumbing concerns, but any kind is possible.
- inspiration could evade you during this transit - tapping into your inner child and creating for no one other than yourself and for pleasure may be the key. could be feeling particularly romantic and craving affection, but you may not be seeing people clearly. it’s possible an old flame or ex may make a reappearance or try to reach out.
- may experience miscommunications or disruptions in your work environment. if you work with others, everyone may not be on the same page. routines and schedules you’ve set for yourself may fall apart or get shifted as mercury shakes things up in your everyday life. pay special attention to your health during this transit as you may feel run-down.
- issues in your close partnerships (business and/or romantic!) that have previously been swept under the rug or overlooked may be brought into focus during this transit. it’s likely an ex or old friend may try to reconnect with you. pay close attention and read the fine print of any contracts or agreements - like a lease, job offer, car loan, etc.
- secrets could come out and be revealed during this time - yours and others - so being honest and upfront is crucial. it’s possible your sex life may temporarily take a dip during this time, or you may want to explore your sexual preferences further. this transit puts focus on the resources (esp. $) you share with others, and making sure that exchange is fair for both.
- review, re-write, revise, and re-examine are the key words here! your school work and educational goals will be front and center. you may feel like you’ve lost your vision for the future and need to reconsider what is “true” for you. may experience miscommunications centered around language or cultural differences. expect delays or cancellations if traveling abroad.
- rebranding or revamping your image is brought into your focus. pay attention to what you say online or in other public forums as others may misconstrue what you try to say. career wise, you may want to reapply for a job, or feel like looking into getting a new one. if you are estranged from a family member (esp. father) they may try to reach out to repair the relationship.
- friendships and your social circles may experience tension or misunderstandings (ex: plans cancelled last minute). may feel more lonely or isolated as a result. old friends may make a reappearance and attempt to rekindle the friendship. this is the time to realize who your true friends are. your goals and dreams are also brought into focus - use this time to plan for the future!
- may have a strong desire to retreat to your inner world or sanctum. could experience particularly powerful dreams or heightened intuition during this transit. Subconsciously-influenced traits/mindsets/behaviors may become more apparent in order for you to acknowledge and release them if necessary.
I realized a had a lot to say about spiders and I could barely fit this stuff into 30 secs lol
