  • new moon: the moon is literally new. a rebirth. use this moon for intentions to do with fresh beginnings, starting again, cleansing. 

  • waxing moons: the moon is increasing its size, it is opening; use these moons for intentions about gaining, growing or expanding.
  • full moon: the moon is at full charge, and can be the most powerful phase in the moon cycle. use this moon for intentions to do with power, clarity, or psychic ability.

  • waning moons: the moon is decreasing its size, it is closing; use these moons for intentions about ridding yourself of something (or someone).

application to the craft:

focus is the most important aspect of bringing an intent to manifest itself. focusing your energy can be made simpler by working with a compatible energy in the world as you focus that intent. 

if the world around you is releasing an energy complementary to yours, it can be easier for that energy to find its way into reality; as opposed to facing any natural adversity.

  • cast soft energy intents in soft phases of the moon. (tranquility, creativity)
  • cast hard energy intents in hard phases of the moon. (strength, control)

this, in my opinion, is the concept of “the power of thought.” when more than one person thinks a thought, that thought holds more weight. this could explain why people practicing or praying together can often yield stronger, or more immediate results. it is a similar reasoning as incorporating tools and ritual into magick, as well.

your energy is a power in itself. but using the power of the elements, the environments, and the world can serve to add to that power. 


The Yagami Residence - The bedrooms of Taichi and Hikari

(A Short Analysis and opinions)

In the first movie, The family is staying in Hikarigaoka and the siblings have a double deck bed, Taichi taking the top bed because it’s dangerous for Hikari to stay on the top. They also have a pencil shaped hanger where they hang the small (baby) bags. After the incident with Koromon, the family moved to Odaiba.

Later on (Digimon 01), Taichi gives up his spot for his younger sister. Hikari probably asked if she can stay on the top part. I also felt that Taichi had a hard time accepting that Hikari was to take the top bed because ‘she might fall off’ then he goes into a ‘overprotective brother mode’ and kept on waking up in the middle of the night, in case Hikari did ‘fall off’. Another reason can be that Taichi did not like going up and down the ladder because it’s tiring.

In Digimon 02, Taichi and Hikari are given separate rooms. I felt that their father’s ‘study/work’ room became a room for Hikari, while Taichi takes the original room. Maybe it was a parent/s decision, or Taichi’s decision but I watched through the series and I felt that Hikari took some time to adjust to this change (especially in episode 13), Hikari’s bed is similar to the double deck bed since it is elevated a bit, it is where she used to sleep on the top part when she used to share rooms with her brother.

Taichi keeps the double deck bed (shown in  Digimon Tri) and surprisingly, he stays on the bottom part, unconsciously he was probably used to Hikari taking the top part and he’s tired of climbing up and down the ladder. The only disadvantage here is that Hikari could easily wake him up in the mornings. I noticed Tai’s room gets messy frequently unlike when he used to share rooms with his sister, it shows which sibling tidies up the room and helps the messy one. It’s nice to see how much the siblings matured over the years.
