I've been giving you lots of spells to work with lately. We know to work with the moons cycles when casting spells, and how the the planetary alignment can influence the energy that we raise. Another point on casting spells is the time of day that you cast it. So today I wanted to delve into that a bit with all of you for those of you who may not be familiar, as casting spells during the appropriate time of day can help contribute to the effectiveness of your spell as well.
Nighttime: As the Moon is out at night, nighttime energy is more feminine in nature. It's a time when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. Spells worked at night should be more personal and emotional in nature. You are appealing to the Mother Goddess. An example of a spell during this time would be one to connect with the Goddess, spells to do with love, relationships, etc. Midnight would be the most powerful time to cast these types of spells.
Daytime: Since the Sun is out during the day, the energy would be more masculine during this time. This time is better spells that are more active and energetic, may require strength or aggressiveness. Some examples of spells to work during the daytime would be ones that pertain to business, money, motivation or groups. High Noon would be the best time to cast these types of spells.
Dawn and dusk are those periods of transition. These times are best for meditations, and spells that may be blurred between the two energies. For example, if I were working a spell for a job, but that job was extremely personal to me, I was after it more for personal fullfillment then monetary reasons, you may wish to cast it at dawn or dusk.
You may want to consider if you are working with a particular God or Goddess when working the spell as well. If you are working with a Goddess, I would cast the spell at night, when working with a God, during the day.
I hope this helps you on your journey!
Much Love and Many Blessings,
