Just as learning how to cast a spell is important for witches, so is learning when to cast a spell. In times of dire need, no witch is going to wait to cast a spell. If someone is seriously ill now, you are not going to wait until a convenient Saturday with a waning moon presents itself to spell the disease away. It is just not possible to schedule your spell work, every time.
However, when you do have the luxury of planning your spells, working a spell according to a specific date and time, can add an extra oomph to the spell, just as including a specific stone or color of candle. When scheduling your spell work, make certain to pay attention to lunar cycles as well as the can help with the magickal affects, as well. For example, when casting spell to effect emotions, if you wish to increase them, perform the spell on a Monday when the moon is waxing toward full. If you want to decrease emotions during times of grief or sorrow, cast when the moon is waning.

Remember: When you wish to cast for positive or negative results, use the waxing and waning moon cycles as a component in your spell. If you are bringing good health or good fortune, use the waxing moon. If you are banishing a disease or a financial debt, use the waning moon. The moon cycle and day you cast are only two components of a spell, you can add as many varied components as you like in order to strengthen the spell.
