WHAT ARE CORRESPONDENCES?

Magick is the practice of influencing energy to achieve a given goal. Energy flows through the
universe, through all things, through us. To work a successful spell you must raise energy, focus it
and then release this energy to your intention. Using an item that corresponds with your intention
will aid in the success of the spell. Everything is made up of energy. In spellwork, corresponding
energies are directed with intent to gain the desired effect. A particular herb may have magickal
qualities of protection, or a certain planet may have a particular elemental correspondence. These
energy properties influence how they interact with both the magickal practitioner and the other
energies in the Universe.

Aligning the energy of the day, color and herb with your intent increases your results. For example:
To work a spell for love use a pink candle anointed with rose oil on a Friday or to work a spell for
prosperity use a green candle dressed in Bergamot oil on a Thursday.

To get the best results also consider the aspect of the moon and the time of day as well as the
other items you employ (Candles, herbs and oils...)

Harmonizing With the Moon

Do you know what phase the moon is in today? With the busy lifestyles modern people lead it is easy
to lose track, but becoming aware of the moon and its monthly rhythms was the first step that led me
to become more connected with the natural world.  
Appropriate timing is very important when working with
Magic and Ritual. The goal is to perform a rite
or spell at the time when the forces at work in the natural world complement your intentions.

How it works

Each year the Moon has thirteen Lunar Cycles per year, each with four phases

The New Moon is the best time to cast spells for new beginnings and new projects. It's influence can
also boost ambitions and careers. This is the time to plant seeds for things you want to manifest.
Any month that has a second new moon (called the black moon, the finders moon or the secret moon)
is more powerful than the first in the cycle. Seeds planted at this time will manifest more quickly.

The Waxing Moon is a good time for building up strength, manifestation, expansion and growth.

The Blue Moon is the name for the second full moon in a month. It is a powerful time to manifest
spells begun at new moon.

The Waning Moon is the time for decrease. This is the most powerful time to cast spells to remove
problems, protection and neutralizing adversaries. It's also a good time for reflection, meditation and
study. Use this moon's energy to banish harmful energies.

moon is transiting through can be used to good advantage during spellwork.

love, creativity, beauty and inner peace. Spells done at this time take the longest to manifest, but the

Void-of-Course Moon or v/c is the time the Moon is "between signs".  It is when the Moon moves
from the sign of Gemini, but has not yet moved into the sign of Cancer. Void-of-Course can last for a
few minutes or a couple of days. Spell working should be avoided when the moon is void of course.
This is a time of disruption when nothing works as expected. Knowing when the moon is void of
course will eliminate a lot of frustration and wasted effort.  

TABLE OF PLANETARY OR MAGICKAL HOURS

Magickal or Planetary Hours are not the same as regular daily hours. Divide the total time between
sunrise and sunset by 12. This will give you the length of Magickal Hours of the day. Dividing the time
between sunset and sunrise by 12 will give you the length of the Planetary Hours of the night. The
hours of the day and night will be of different lengths except on the Equinoxes.

When doing spell work we
cast a circle and invite an energy in to 'stand guard and protect and lend
their energy' to the work being done. While Stephani works with angelic energies, I prefer to
work with
elemental energies.

Herbal energies are also used in spell work. The properties of Magick are important to understand.
Everything in the heavens and earth has an energy ( a magickal force or a baraka) When casting a
spell energy is raised with a focused goal (though
visualization) and then released to bring that goal
into
manifestation.

Even the most common culinary herb has a magical property. Parsley is used for fertility and thyme for
clairvoyance. Use this
