Remember without the Moon and her different phases Mother Earth would be less inhabitable. The Moon has always had a type of dominion over the oceans and larger lakes on Mother Earth with her waning and pulling every morning and night. When you thank Mother Earth for all the bounty she gives us please remember to thank her sister the Moon for helping to make these things possible also. This is why the phase the Moon is in is just one important aspect for getting as much power into a spell as is the day of the week and the hour of the day or night you do your non-emergency spellwork.
Blessed be dear ones.
