Waning Moon Magic! ✨

First of all, you need to learn everything about Lunar Magic and what each moon phase represents. The basics are:

  • There are 8 lunar phases and we can group them into 4 stages: New Moon, Waxing Moon, Full Moon, and Waning Moon.
  • Waning is the stage when the moon is going from Full to New, so it is decreasing in visibility. It starts as Gibbous 🌖 (mostly full) and ends when it’s Crescent 🌘 (almost invisible).
  • The in-between stage when you can see a half moon is called Last Quarter 🌗

Quick Banishing Ritual in the Waning Moon

To grasp the energy of the Waning Moon, we can do this very simple ritual and let go of any negative situation. This spell can be cast under a Waning Gibbous, Crescent or Last Quarter Moon because these three lunar phases share one common quality: Removal.

You will need:

  • Pen and paper
  • 1 white tealight candle
  1. Write on the paper what is currently bothering or what you want to remove from your life. It could be a bad habit, a symptom, a person, a situation, or an emotion.
  2. Light a white candle in a safe place (always practice candle safety) and read aloud what you have written.
  3. Leave the paper next to the candle. Meditate and once the candle has extinguished, break the paper into pieces and toss it in the trash with the remains of your candle.

      Hi Jolie,

      A banishing spell can send the energy of that person away with no ill to the person. Check out this spell: Far & Away Spell to banish someone.

      Focus on the person and send intentions to will this person and their energy away from you. Cast a circle before. Use a white candle to represent yourself and a black candle to represent the person you’re banishing. Burn some dragon’s blood incense during this spell. And cleanse your space afterwards.

      Best of Luck!
