Working Aquarius Moon Magick
Under An Aquarius Moon
Aquarius is a lunar phase which occurs each and every month for 2 and a half days. Lunar energy is transmuted through the astrological sign of Aquarius. This occurs when the Moon is orbiting the constellation of Aquarius as seen from the earth.
In astrology the transiting Moon reflects mood changes. These are day to day encounters which are triggered by lunar energies and the aspects they make in our astrological chart. The Moon symbolizes females. In predictive astrology we can see women approaching us in an Aquarian fashion when this transit is occurring.
Aquarius is the sign of the water bearer. It is a fixed sign which means that it likes to stubbornly hold it's place. Some astrologers claim that it is the most eccentric astrological sign. In modern astrology it is governed by the planet Uranus, but traditionally it would be ruled by Saturn.
Aquarius Governs Electricity
Uranus is an outer planet in astrology. It is the modern ruler of Aquarius. I use this planet in my path as a witch. Traditional astrologers would have used the planet Saturn. I am going to list out the correspondences of Aquarius from Aleister Crowley's book 777.
- 27 on the Key Scale
- The House of God
- 378 Mystic Number of the Sephiroth
- Tuisco (Scandinavian God)
- Ruby or any red stone
- Horse, Bear, Wolf
The correspondences to help you select materials for magickal workings. It is an essential book for those who wish to practice magick based on the work of Aleister Crowley.
Aquarius Moon Magick To Do
Scientific concerns may be tackled when the Moon is in Aquairus. If you have a science test this would be a good moon sign to cast your magick under. If you wish to achieve higher grades you can use the Aquarius Moon when it is in the waxing phase. You could also the waning phase if you wish to eliminate errors on your test.
You might wish to be more free in your self expression. An Aquarius Moon is going to help you in this aim. Uranus is the planet of dramatic change. If you wish to be outspoken you could use this lunar phase for spell-work. There are other workings which also benefit from this lunar energy. Breaking of unhealthy habits or eliminating addictive patterns. These are dramatic changes taking place in our life. Disruption is the key to working with this energy. Many people feel that the word disruption has a negative connotation. When it is something that is a negative pattern which we are disrupting it can be a great thing.
Drawing Down The Moon
Moon In Aquarius - Full Moon
Once a month many witches enjoy doing a ritual called 'Drawing Down The Moon'. This ritual is best performed outdoors. When the Moon is in Aquarius we are tapping into the power of radical transformation. You may choose to draw the power down into an athame or wand. An athame is a ritual knife many witches use to direct power. With ritual you merely stand outside. You would raise your hand or tool to the heavens. Then you would utter the below incantation.
'Moon above, source of power,
I now draw down that power into myself.
Pure essence of Goddess
Be with me now!'
After you have done this you may choose to consume cakes and wine to ground yourself. Some people many wish to do other ritual work after this.
