What comes to mind when you hear that title? Errie, Black Magick that is summoned up from the darkest corners of the deepest black pits of the Universe… Where the souless undead roam and macebre spirits wander…
Yeah, this is not Nocturnal Witchcraft.
This type of practice is to perform Magickal Spells and/or Rituals during the hours of the Night. This doesnt automatically make Nocturnal Witchcraft an “EVIL” practice.
One of my first practices I started out with when first learning the Craft. Nocturnal Practices are performed by individuals that are drawen to the Night, the Moon, and Lunar Energies.
In my late teens after graduating highschool I often felt more comfortable and alive during hours of the Night when the world was most quiet. My fondest memories of when I was a “Night Owl” was around the time I would be heading into my bed. Although I loved the stillness and quietness of the Nightly World, when the Sun would start to peak over the horizsen, it was always so beautiful.
I remember sitting out in our yard during Dawn, watching the sun start to rise over the trees gazing in “aw” like wonder at the scenery in front of myself. Remembering the feelings “vampires” most alway would express about how the Sun was no longer a part of their lifes, this was not there world… At least anymore.
But appearantly this was not unusual behavior for me. Being that my SunSign in my Astrology Birthchart is Scorpio/Water, and Scorpios are best known to be Nocturnal Beings and they make the best Nocturnal Witches as well, or so Ive heard. As the moon moves across the sky, it passes through the various zodiac signs, primarily affecting our moods and reactions. Those who have a sun sign align to the water element (Scorpio, Piecese, Cancer) will feel this effect most strongly.
Nocturnal Witchcraft Practices:
Before I get into the practices I want to say that in no way do I speak for all Nocturnal Witches. These Practices are from my own expeiences and I hope you find them helpful and informative and that you too enjoy them as well.
I find that working with the Moon Phases is incorperated with Nocturnal Witchcraft. Each Moon Phase can help assist with different situations that goes on in our lifes.
Many witches choose to time their spells based on moon phase. Generally, spells for gain or increase are done during the waxing moon while spells for banishing or decrease are done during the waning moon.
Some witches also choose to cast their spells based on the zodiac sign through which the moon is traveling. One might choose to do a spell associated with lunar energy when the moon was in the zodiac sign ruled by the moon being Cancer.
Working with the Moon and Lunar Energies can help assist with
Cycles, emotions, secrets, divination, divine feminine, your feminine side, the subconscious, dreams and dream work, finding a path, hidden intentions. Not to shabby of a practice, huh?
