A moon witch is a practitioner of witchcraft who uses the energies and influences of the Moon in their magical work. They may use lunar cycles to time spells, meditations and rituals for greater potency, or draw upon the feminine archetype that is often associated with the Moon for guidance and insight. Nowadays, Moon witches typically practice solo. But can also join together in covens to perform rituals during particular times of strong lunar energy such as full moons or eclipses. After all, eclipse magic is probably the strongest form of Witchcraft.
History of being a Moon Witch
Being a Moon Witch is definitely not new. There are many cities of the ancient World who practiced powerful Moon magic. Ephesus was such a place in Ancient Greece (now modern Turkey). Actually, this was so powerful that apostle Paul wrote letters to Ephesians to turn to Christianity. But it was not easy, as the major problem in Ephesus was that it was a center for witchcraft back then. There was the temple of Artemis (Diana) Goddess of the Moon.

However, these Witches were known to be the strongest, as common people could actually see the Witches draw down the Light, the essence of the Moon.
Being a Moon Witch has a long and varied history that dates back to ancient times. Back then, they were known as powerful healers, protectors, and wise women and men. They were often consulted for their astrological knowledge – mostly based on the phases of the Moon.
