Lunar orbit cycle of moon

  1. 1. The Phases Of The Moon The moon has inspired many lore, beliefs and stories through the years. Forancient peoples, before there were clocks and calendars, the moon has served as atime-teller, signaling the seasons and the turns of the tide. Hunting for food andplanting were synchronized with the moon’s phases. Even feasts and rituals weretimed with the moon. It was a mystery, a source of magic, and in some cultures,even a god or a goddess. In the modern world, the moon has become a physical place where mancould take steps on and send many space shuttles to. While there are still quite afew mysteries to be solved about the moon, many others have been brought tolight by science. Today when people look up at the night sky, it makes one wonder,what exactly does one see? Do people see a lump of rock or the hidden face of adeity? The phases of the moon come with its own sets of stories and legends. Thekey phases are new moon, first quarter, full moon and last quarter. Scientifically,these phases are explained by how the sun throws light on the moon. Since themoon goes around the earth, and the earth goes around the sun, the sun illuminatesthe moon based on those movements. From another angle, these phases reflect the
  2. 2. natural flow of life from birth to growth to death. These perspectives make thedifference on what people see when they look up at the moon. The observed pattern or cycle of the phases of the moon takes 29.5 days.Within this period, much is practiced, believed and influenced by how the moonshows itself in the night sky. Activities such as planting and fishing have long beencoincided with the moon’s phases. People from earlier times scheduled life eventsdepending on the moon, whether for luck or for a simple functional reason thatmore light at night allows for more accomplishments. Among the phases of the moon, the most popular could well be the fullmoon. That point in time when the moon is round and big and bright in the sky hasalways elicited various emotions and associations. Depending on how beliefssway, a full moon could be an omen or a sign of good tidings. The full moon hasreceived so much attention through time and has become an object of myth andsuperstition in its own right. Each full moon has actually been given names, with meanings that are oftenrooted in traditional agricultural practices. The most commonly heard is probablythe Harvest Moon that happens in either September or October. It is named suchbecause it is the time when it is biggest and brightest. It is so bright that farmerscan continue to harvest in their fields even during nighttime. On the other hand, the full moon has also been connected to strange behaviorto this day. Nurses have been said to claim that during the full moon, more peopleare brought into hospitals for accidents or injuries caused by unusual activities.Even some policemen have made the association of increased violence oraggression during the full moon. However, regardless of how superstitious or scientific one approaches themoon, it cannot be denied that the moon will remain to be a fascinating object ofwonder and study. Call it magic or the magnet of gravity -- the pull of the moon onpeople’s imaginations will remain as strong as its pull on the tides of the seas.
  3. 3. White Magic and the Phases of the Moon The moon has always remained a mystery and an object of myths and magicdespite newspaper headlines of men making footprints on its surface. Even intoday’s modern world, there are those who remain attuned to lore of the moon.White magic is one of the things that abide by the moon in its practice. There are many ways of understanding white magic but what is key to remember is that it never intends to harm anyone. Its intentions are primarily targeted to beneficial effects. Hence this is not the kind of magic that pokes pins into dolls to cause pain. If anything, one can probably poke a pin to remove an ailment affecting the corresponding body part. White magic and the phases of the moon are inseparable when it comes todoing rituals and spells that are intended to enhance some aspect of life. The moonis often a key ingredient in the success of these intentions as its phase mirrors themovement or direction of the desired effect of the spell. In general, the phases of the waxing moon, or when the moon is growingfrom new moon to full moon is best for spells that target growth or increase. Spellsfor money, health and the development of romantic relationships are often
  4. 4. performed during this time. For even better effects, days closest to the full moontake advantage of for its perfect state of coming to completion. On the other hand,for matters that need a full fresh start, the new moon phase is considered perfecttiming for triggering that much needed shift. The phases of the waning moon, or when the moon is decreasing from fullmoon until before the new moon, are the best times to conduct spells of removal.Spells that push away obstacles or lessen bad influences and bad luck work wellwith the diminishing moon. Some types of healing spells can be done at this timeas the ailment is visualized to weaken and disappear. When healed, the spell cantake on a next phase during the waxing moon. This time it will be geared towardsincreasing wellness and strengthening the body. As white magic and the phases of the moon are integrated more closely, onecan also add other elements in the spell such as what day, hour or season it is.Layering the associated effects could further empower the intention. For example,the season of spring has always been symbolic of new beginnings and renewedhope as the earth emerges from winter. Doing a spell in spring, on a new moon,will aid any desired beginnings whether a relationship, a job, or even the simplematter of moving house. The combinations of white magic and the phases of the moon are furtherenhanced by bringing in earth’s own nature to the mix. By understanding the loreof herbs, for example, one can add yet another layer to the spell. Keeping basil inone’s wallet after a spell for increasing money on a spring night during the waxingmoon should soon manifest a money source. While a pouch of money may not necessarily fall from the sky, the intentioncould result in a job opportunity or an unexpected gift. The important thing is tohave one’s own emotions to also be positively attuned to the whole practice.Although with magic, the idea of a falling pouch from the sky may not be toostrange after all.
