D. D. Scott's Magickal Mantras #5: Celebrate The Moon

Happy Hump Day, D. D. Scott-ville Peeps, and welcome back to my Magickal Mantras!!!

Today, we're ready for #5...

Celebrate The Moon




Just like my new character Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches, who debuts in just a few days in her new series, beginning with Book One - PRACTICAL MISCHIEF -




I "celebrate the moon" and actually build my witchery around that incredibly powerful source.

And not just at each month's Full Moon. The Moon is magickal in all of its quarters. In fact, here's the scoop:

If you want to increase and/or improve certain things in your life - for example, health and prosperity, practice moon magick during Quarters 1 and 2 (so, from each New Moon until the Full Moon). If you want to decrease or banish certain aspects of your life and the negative effects they have on you, work your magick during Quarters 3 and 4 (from the Full Moon back to the New Moon).

To help you track the moon's quarters and phases, check out this fabulous site (I've used their moon phase module on the bottom left sidebar in D. D. Scott-ville):

What I love to do is to head on outside each and every night (I take out my dogs one last time before bed so that's when I do this type of witchery) and celebrate all the gorgeous phases of the moon. I often lift-up my arms to the moon, close my eyes, and feel the light and warmth of its power flow into my heart, mind and soul.

And yep, sometimes I dance a little bit just like these fabulous faeries. The energy pull is so strong it just makes you want to do a little Victor Cruz Salsa or some bootscootin' down the sidewalk.



Depending on which phase we're in, I silently, or sometimes out loud too, whisper to the moon whatever it is that I'm working on. Lately, for example, during Quarters 1 and 2 (known as The Waxing Moon - when the moon gets bigger and brighter toward a Full Moon), I've asked for guidance in how to help my DH (Darling Husband) to continue to improve and recover well from his double knee replacement. During Quarters 3 and 4 (The Waning Moon - the time the moon gets smaller and eventually goes into its dark, New Moon phase), I've been working on finding magickal ways to banish his pain.

***Note: See how you can kinda ask for the same thing, but with a different focus? In one case, I'm asking for positive energy to come to us (better health), and then later, asking for the negative energy to be banished (pain free).

Now then...I also toss in a few wonderful magickal correspondences, such as my Moonstones and white and silver candles to give the magick a bigger boost yet!




That's one way I Celebrate The Moon in my wonderful witchery-filled home.

What do you think, D. D. Scott-ville Peeps...How do you Celebrate The Moon?

  1. Great post, D.D.! I never knew that about the quarters between the full moon and the new moon. I enjoy looking at the moon every night that it is visible to me. Since I have some things that I would love to increase and/or improve in my life, I will have to start practicing moon magic during Quarters 1 and 2. Since I want to be able to decrease or banish certain aspects of my life and the negative effects that they have on me, I will have try working my magic during Quarters 3 and 4. I used to have some Moonstones when I was younger, but I don't know what ever happen to them. I will have to see about acquiring some of them again. Thanks for sharing this with us D.D..

    1. Fabulous, Becky!

      I get all of my stones now from Amazon at great prices! Here's the link to the moonstones I just bought, and they're gorgeous and a nice larger size:
