Additional Components for Lunar Magic
My magical works show how I draw together and balance a variety of energies addressed since ancient times, but applied in a modern context. The magical works portion of this book demonstrates how correlating energies can be blended to achieve a goal. The practitioner may combine as many or as few of the available energies as desired, with the components forming a buffet of magical options, including Moon phase, zodiac sign, lunar mansion, planetary energies, sigils, seals, and squares; fixed-star energy, colors, runes, herbs, stones, incense, and essential oils. The day of the week and hour of the day are additional choices that could be addressed to play a role in selecting the timing of Esbat and magical work within a lunar mansion. All the energies are selected by the influence that can be called upon in relation to the work. The lunar phase itself embraces three days: the day before, the day of, and the day after. Beyond this, on either side of the lunar event, the energy changes. How you creatively pull together some or all of these influences is what defines your personal Craft.
