The Lunar Calendar of Witches
The Moon has been a part of witch lore for many centuries. The moon is the central feature in all forms of witchcraft that use lunar calendar dates to cast spells and do rituals. The changes of the moon are tracked by witch covens through the 13-lunar-month calendar year, divided into moon quarters or moon phases.
The witch's month is the time between two new moons, when the dark of the Moon occurs. The witch's month begins with the dark of the Moon and ends with the full moon. A witch's day is a lunar day, which lasts 24 hours long. A witch's year is 13 lunar months long.
The witch's month of January begins on the new moon and ends with the full moon, on the witch's day of January 1. A witch's year of January 1 begins with a new moon and ends with a full moon on January 1 of the next year.
The witch's day is a lunar day, which lasts 24 hours long. There are 13 witch's days in a witch's month, which lasts 29.5 days. Because there are 13 witch's days in a witch's month and 13 witch's months in a witch's year, a witch's moon cycle lasts approximately 364 days.
A witch usually has an affinity for one of the 13 witch signs or witch moons. The witch's astrological sign of Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, which is the witch god of war. The witch god of war is summoned during battle and at witch celebrations. Witches celebrate eight festivals every witch year, which are called the witch holidays.
The witch's holiday of May Eve begins the witch's year and is celebrated on April 30. The witch goddess of war, Aradia, is summoned during the witch's holiday of Beltane. Aradia, also known as Herodias, is also summoned when a witch wants to cast revenge on another witch.
