moon phase info




The Esbat or full moon, has long been seen by pagan's as the best time to do rituals and magick.
The Celts believed that the impact of the full moon's energy and influence was felt for three days before and three days after the full moon.

The Celtic year was divided by it's full moons into thirteen months, one for each moon occuring during the solar year.
