Lunar cycles are an intrinsic tool in all magic, sharing an intimate relationship with the Triple Goddess of Mother, Maiden and Crone. Each goddess is represented by three stages of the moon. The Maiden is the first stage, hers in the waxing moon. She is a free spirit that personifies positive energy and fuels all of our future dreams and aspirations. Mother is the second stage, hers is the full moon. She has a sense of wisdom and balance which gives confidence and empowerment through the power of reflection. The third stage is the Crone, hers is the waning moon. She teaches how to accept all facets of life, bringing peace and inner calm, which gives us the ability to understand and control our emotions.
