The Waxing Crescent Moon - Growth and Revelation

The Waxing Crescent Moon - Growth and Revelation

The waxing moon occurs when it is moving from new to full.  As the moon becomes more visible, it exerts an increasing energy that can be useful in magical workings as well as everyday life.

The waxing crescent moon encourages growth.  Spend some time thinking about the things you would like to see happen in your life.  Are you looking for a romantic relationship, or hoping to get noticed for a big promotion at work?  Use this phase to set intentions and plant seeds in the fertile universal soil of potential.  Have a meeting with your boss about your career path.  Make it a priority to get out and meet more people.  True magick is knowing how to direct the energies available to you towards a certain goal.  A large part of handling energies effectively is knowing exactly what you want.  In your meditation time, visualize your life as it will be after you have reached your goal.  Use your mental and emotional energies to power your vision, then release it into the universe.  If you have a journal, spend a little time each day writing about the things you would like to see in your life.  Be as detailed as possible.

How you frame your issue is an important part of working with the moon's energies.  For example, say you have an illness that is not healing properly.  In a waning phase, your magical workings would focus on ridding your body of disease and discomfort.  During the waxing phase of the moon, set the intention to encourage health.  Envision yourself being healed, and imbue that vision with your own psychic energy.

On a more mundane level, the waxing crescent moon is a good time to start something new.  As the moon's light strengthens, it will strengthen your commitment and resolve, helping to cement your new habit.  Plant a garden, or start a new project, and watch it grow with the light of the moon.

As the moon moves from dark to light, it naturally illuminates things that may have been hidden in the dark.  This is a great time for fortunetelling, scrying, or working with the tarot.  Whatever your preferred method, the revealing tendencies of this phase can bring enlightenment and knowledge that may not be as easily accessible at other times. 

As the waxing moon draws more and more light from the sun, it also draws things to you.  If you find yourself struggling during this time, think about your thought life, and how the words you use in your head may have inadvertently planted the seeds of your current discontent.  This phase is an important reminder that thoughts have power. 

While the full and new moons are the most powerful phases for working spells, the waxing crescent moon is a good time to focus your personal energies.  If the matter you wish to address is extremely important, you may want to wait until the moon is full to take it into your circle.  If your matter is urgent or time sensitive, the waxing crescent moon is a good time to start working on it, so that you can start to see the fruits of your magic when the moon becomes full.

Keep in mind that the closer the moon gets to being full, it's power increases as well.  Use this time to actively send your own energy towards your goals, and watch your dreams become reality.
