What is the Waxing Moon?
After the New Moon, we experience the phase known as Waxing Moon. During that time, our Satelite gets bigger and bigger each day. In magic, this means that your intentions are more likely to grow and transform during that time. There are Three Moon Phases associated with Waxing Moon: Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, and Waxing Gibbous. Each of them is great for the magic that is related to bringing something into your life. Whether it is a new partner or more love into an existing relationship, new car or more fuel for your weekend trips, new friendships, or maintaining the ones that are already present in your life, finding a new job, or getting a promotion.
In Wicca, Waxing Moon is associated with the Maiden stage of Goddess.
Waxing Moon Magic Intentions
intensity, concentration, gaining, growing, improving, healing, strengthening, addition, expanding, taking action, moving forwards, accomplishing goals, cultivating, being practical, determination, making decisions, pushing forward, redefining, being specific, activating, anticipating, gathering energy, pushing boundaries
Waxing Crescent Spells and Rituals
As the moon slowly gains intensity it marks a great time to focus on redefining your goals and taking the first action. It’s better to start small, with tiny steps, and work your way to fruition. The same way that Lady Luna grows each day, you will accomplish your goals by consistent action. Below you can find some examples of how to use the Waxing Moon Phase.
Make a Vision Board
This idea has already appeared in my New Moon Post, yet during waxing crescent, you can still make your own board of inspiration. Collect the visual representations of your dream life and stick them in a place you’re going to look at daily. Each day spend a minute or two visualizing and feeling how it is to achieve all these listed things. Make it as specific as you can and let all these goodies come to you in a natural way!
Have you ever made a Vision Board? Let me know in the comments about your results. I would really love to hear all these success stories!
Work on your Action Plan
When you already know what you wish to bring during that Lunar Cycle (setting New Moon intentions and affirmations might really help here), you should list a detailed step-by-step guide.
For example, if you want to find new friends, you can sign up for your local Facebook Group, or find an interesting meet up held nearby. Be really specific on what type of people you want to attract into your life and act accordingly. If you wish to have inspiring and active friends, don’t try to find them in the nearest pub. Rather pick up a hobby and share quality time with someone of the same interest and frequency.
The first rule here – As energetical beings, we attract what we are. Change starts in your attitude, habits, and everyday actions – don’t try to make it the other way around and hope that people will make this change for you.
Use your Affirmations every day
Affirmation is a positive statement of life that you want to bring in. For the best results, it should be very specific, in the present tense, felt as it’s already true and repeated daily.
Let’s say you want more money. Well… Who doesn’t? In this case, you need to think big, yet realistic. If you already have a job, you can affirm a promotion or a pay raise. If you don’t you can visualize yourself finding one or working on alternative ways of income. Make it really specific: “I have a fulfilling job in online marketing. I have 3 new clients each month. I earn 2000 dollars a month.”
Do you get it?
I see so many people confusing intentions with affirmations, never making it specific, and hoping that the Universe knows what “I have more money” means. You might be surprised, or not even realizing that you got more money on the last sale (by saving some) and this affirmation is already fulfilled. Or will continue fulfilling this way, which doesn’t seem like a big gain. Am I right?
First Quarter Spells and Rituals
Some say that the First Quarter is the most powerful day during the Waxing Phase. It is the time when the moon is 50% lit and it appears more bright and glorious in the night sky. You can use it in your favor by choosing some of these Waxing Moon rituals listed below.
If not now then when?
We cannot just affirm, visualize, and hope for the results. No. Energy doesn’t work this way. It is a great start, but for any kind of physical results, you need to take action. Even the smallest step in the right direction puts you ahead in this manifestation game.
For example. If I want to have a healthy and beautiful body (intention), I need to know what does it mean to me. In this case, the affirmation should be something like “I can do 50 pushups in one go” (waaay more specific and measurable). Imagine the scenario. I lay all day in the bed or a couch watching videos of people doing pushups. This will never bring me into the form, even though I desperately believe in that sort of magic. To be able to do 50 pushups I need to start doing them. Simple as that! Even starting from one a day and slowly increasing it to 50, will eventually bring me to accomplishing this measurable goal.
Fast Luck Oil
- rose, vanilla, cinnamon in a dry form or essential oil
- carrier oil (olive oil, almond oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba, or other carrier oil that you have)
- small bottle
- Make sure you have some alone time, cleansed, and protected space.
- If you are using dry herbs and spices, grind them in mortar and pestle to make smaller chunks that will fit your bottle.
- Pick a small bottle (also cleansed) and put your dry ingredients in it. Then fill it up with carrier oil. Shake quickly. If you are using essential oils or absolutes, you can add 5-10 drops of each and fill the bottle with a carrier oil.
- Use this Fast Luck Oil for dressing small candles that you will burn with the intention of bringing fast results to your chosen area of life or a spell that you’ve already done.
Seek the Balance
With the Moon halfway illuminated, there is no better time to seek balance in your life.
Take a notebook or piece of paper and divide it in half. On one side write all the things that you want to bring into your life. Maybe it is a healthy way of eating, doing yoga 5 days a week, starting with meditation, finding a better paying job, or a new circle of friends. Whatever you feel like you need more in your life.
On the other half of the page write the things that stop you from achieving an ideal way of living. Is it snacking after 9 pm? Or maybe smoking cigarettes? Surrounding yourself with negative people? You know the best!
It is always good to see both ways equally balanced. These negativities are also here to teach you something. Try to figure out what is the main bad habit that stops you from doing what you love. Don’t try to fight it yet as Waxing Moon is not the best time to do so. Wait for the time when the moon starts to Wane off and literally begin your “destructive” work by letting go of things that no longer serve you.
Waxing Gibbous Spells and Rituals
The Last Phase of a Waxing Moon is called a Waxing Gibbous. This is the time to really attune and work hard towards your goals.
Journaling Questions and Prompts
- What is my progress so far?
- What other habits or goals can bring me to my dream life?
- Does my New Moon manifestation work?
- What is the last big thing I should do before the Full Moon?
- What Full Moon Spell can help me achieve my goals?
Just before the Full Moon is good to close all the things that need the most effort. If you are working on a big project, try to finish everything that causes the most stress and hustle.
According to some practitioners, all the manifestation and attraction work should be done within the first two weeks of a Lunar Cycle, which is the Waxing Moon. After that, we can relax, be grateful, and wait for all the blessings to come our way.
Activate Your Chakras
Sometimes the obstacles in our life come from blockages in the chakras. The best way to keep in tune with them is to make sure that life force energy flows smoothly in all of these energetical centers.
My favorite chakra meditation comes handy in this situation.
Start by finding a quiet place and comfortable position. Recenter and ground your energy in a way that allows it to flow freely between the base of your spine and the top of the head.
With the power of your mind, locate your attention in the first Root Chakra. Try to see any stagnant, dark energy there. Maybe some cords or holes appear to be there. Imagine yourself holding an energetic wipe that clears all that junk. Pull out unwanted energies and seal the chakra with your healing ability.
Follow your way up, stopping in each of the 7 energetical centers and cleansing them the same way. This process might look different for each individual, so don’t get discouraged and do your best by visualizing a healing energy clearing all the blockages.
When you ready, try to see all the colors of the rainbow shining brightly from your body. Before leaving your meditative state seal all the chakras in a way that they will support a balanced flow.
These would be my all favorite ways to celebrate the Waxing Moon Phase. Let me know in the comments which thing would be the most beneficial to implement in your Moon Magic practice! And as always, I am really happy to discuss all the information presented in this article. Openly listening!
