Moon and Moon Magick

Full Moon

Full Moon represents the peek. The Sun and the Moon at this stage are opposite signs, some feel the energy passing between them. Many feel uplifted on the Full Moon. In the Crafts both Light and Dark this be a time of casting spells.
When one has set in play on the New Moon what one wants to bring into one’s life the Full Moon gives you a chance to release it so Spirit. It is now time for the Universe to work to bring it to reality.

New Moon

The New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are aligned in the same sign, and a strong energy portal is opened to the Universe. It is the time to set goals one wants to obtain or things one wants to create. It can be as simple as bringing in the energy with candles or going into rituals.
Moon Magick is the belief that working with rituals at the time of different phases of the Moon.

hello friend Lynn,
I have had several encounters with nature spirits and most of them have been very rewarding.
My first took place in a small Scottish glen which was remote and hidden from view until one actually arrived in it. It was called Bal Haan. I would sit by a waterfall feeding into a small rock pool. One day I became aware of a figure standing in the stream which led from the pool. The figure was female, about five feet high and impossibly slim. I use the word slim rather than thin becasue there was great grace and beauty in her form. She wore a silvery blue dress which seemed almost misty. After a few minutes she simply faded away.
Several weeks later I was at a social gathering and got into a conversation with a professor who's speciality was Scottish folk law and legend. For some reason the conversation got round to remote glens and the professor said and I quote, "Now Bal Haan, that's one place I would never go to. Translated into English the name means place of the water spirit." I had not mentioned my vision and I never did.
Peace.

Do you believe in Unicorns? I always felt very connected to them, and use to work with meditation & healing methods about them. Have you ever seen one, or have you had any experiences with one?

I feel a deep connection to Phoenix too, and I turned to find out that my present life is about regeneration, so that might make sense.

I have some information on Unicorns in the Book Animal Magicks there is a Meditaion for RIDING the Unicorn. I can scan it into me computer and PM it here....if one wishes.

The Unicorn YES I feel they are real. From the book Animal Magick By D.J. Conway

Magickal Attributes are :Good will, fame, prosperity, genltless,purity,strength of mind. Individual power that is unlimited. For wisdom with success. Developing personal power.

There too is a chant

A child of the unicorn, that would I be.
Your goodness and wisdom reflected in me.
Let me seek for the good things that brighten my name,
For gentleness, purity, abundance, and fame,
Let me know that my power is forever unbound,
that what's given in LOVe circles right back around.

For the Pheonix

Magickal Attributes are :

Rebirth, renewal, spiritual growth. Call upon the phonenix for strength an renewed energy when facing or undergoing trials of life.

Chant :

Out of ashes, new beginnings,
Out of fire comes new power,
Out of darkness, new day dawning,
Phoenix, help me in this trying hour.


I so highly recomment the BOOK "Animal Magick" by D.J. Conway
The art of recognizing and working with familars.

It covers so very much. I am always going to this book.

Hello :smile: A few months ago I was reading Angel Answers by Diana Cooper which had a really interesting section on Unicorns, I had never given them much thought before but it convinced me they were real.

This link might be of interest to you - http://www.dianacooper.com/angelsorbsunicorns/unicorns.html

I recently ordered Coopers Unicorn Mediation CD. She also has a book The wonder of Unicorns which I hope to eventually read.

I have had alot of people coming into my shop recently saying that Unicorn energy is coming in very strongly at the moment - part of the shift in consciousness that we are all going through at the moment.

I have dragon spirits all over my home. And I've seen them in various other places as well. There is one park about an hour away from where I live, that's full of dragons. While I'm sure there are other mythical being there as well, I just haven't seen them yet. And I'm pretty darn sure there are at least three portals there, one negative, one positive and one neutral, but I don't know how to open them yet.

Hello


Do be wary of opening doors that one might not want open. What one person percieves as possitive and negative and nuetrual the other might well see very different. The Universe I so feel is in a time of energy flux and in that there are more and more things open to us to explore.

When it comes to opening to anything new make sure that ye are grounded and have the intentions on only what is BEST for one's higest and best good. Be ready for what one might find.....and have an open mind. How to open them it is an indivial thing as I so feel that doors open to us WHEN we are ready for them to do so and are closed from us for reasons. That said I am one of great "needing to know" things and I have ventured to open to places one maybe should not but its all learning.

When it comes to Dragon's I have heard many say they are possitive and many say they are not possitive. I have yet to venture to get close to one.....but I have seen them in the sky. I have an friend that flies with them in Astral. Might come down to what one is drawn to in Spirit or in past life connections. For me I am connected more to Pegasus and I will use that beast in Guided Astral Journeys with other's.

Again done with great respects for the person I am working with and much monitoring on them.

Thanks for the warning. I'm well aware of the dangers one can find in the astral plane. I do know that a fragment of my ancient soul has been guarding a portal that shouldn't have been open a couple hundred years ago. And, I had actually been helping out with a battle in a "not so nice place" not too long ago :wink:

Personally, I've yet to meet a not so positive dragon. Hum, I guess that would all depend on one's perspective though. My friend has a guardian dragon spirit who's actually a battle dragon. Though I can't really see him, my friend describes him as covered in scares and holes in his wings. He can be quite intimidating when he wants to be. But also very loving to those he protects. I always know I had dragons around the house, but this dragon spirit guide told me that my home actually got turned into a spawning ground, because of all the dragon's blood incense I like to burn. So lots of little hatchies running around. I've gotten to see a shadow of one a couple of times now.

I can actually turn into one in spirit form, when I wish to incorporate my creative visualization skills. While I'm still not 100% sure about this, I think I may well have some part of a dragon soul inside of me. And I've been told, that the part of my soul that's guarding that portal, is in fact an ancient dragon. Hehehe, we sent my friend's guardian dragon out to where that portal is, to report on the condition of things, and the dragon came back saying that I looked almost as battle worn as he does, LOL.

Hello


I have a friend that has a strong connetion to Gargoyles. Too he has what he calls his "Beast" that comes in at times exploration of the wilds when he is alone to run free. We all have that in us I feel. We are not alway human in existance or even from the Earth Plane I so fee we wonder intdimentionally and univerally.

NOW some might call that strange. I have studdied in Shape Shifting and I have successfully made a full on shift.

We all have that in us I feel. We are not alway human in existance or even from the Earth Plane I so fee we wonder intdimentionally and univerally.

Heh, I've got a soft spot for gargoyles as well :smile: It stems from a strange dream I had many years ago, where I found some ancient book about a girl who was the "prophecy child" and her gargoyle protectors. Funny thing was, I somehow knew that I was an incarnation of that girl. And when I wandered into some kind of dinner party at a castle, apologizing for being so late, yet explaining about the book I had found, and how it all felt so familiar to me, like I was somehow there. When I said that, all the other guests at the table started whispering amongst themselves, as the man at the head of the table stood up, saying "We've finally found you." And while everyone there looked human, I had this strange feeling they were all really gargoyles.

The dream felt so real, that the next morning I had asked for their help with my youngest son's father, cause he was very abusive. And within the week, he wound up with what looked like claw marks running down his chest. But that was the only time anything physical happened to him. But it does make me wonder if they had been staying my ex's hand when he'd do things like hold knives up to my throat or stand over me with a club in his hand, ready to break my legs.

Heh. Not too long ago, I had asked Archangel Michael about those gargoyles, and he said it was a creative way for him to establish contact with me. He said that he went looking for my energy, to see what I was up to in this lifetime. At the time of that dream, I don't think I would have accepted the dream so easily if I had known they were Angels instead of gargoyles. I was really into fantasy fiction and paranormal stuff, and had been shying away from anything religious based. Michael said he had used his sword on my ex, to cause those scratch marks.

NOW some might call that strange. I have studdied in Shape Shifting and I have successfully made a full on shift.

Oh? How so? You mean as in a full body physical transformation? Or just in spirit?

When I was younger I had a strong urge to run fast and far on four legs. Sometimes I still do.

As a starters, I think unicorns are made up by people, but they are a mix of horses and a collective memory of the elasmotherium perhaps..!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elasmotherium (http://www.spiritualforums.com/vb/redir.php?link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.spiritualforums.co m%2Fvb%2Fredir.php%3Flink%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fen. wikipedia.org%252Fwiki%252FElasmotherium) Over time, the memory got distorted and mixed with other creatures. I like the idea..:smile:When I was younger I had a strong urge to run fast and far on four legs. Sometimes I still do.maybe you're a werewolf..:D

Werewolf Tragblack.. I like the sound of that.
