Moon Diary 2017 UK

When spell casting, planting by the moon, observing Wiccan rights or following Pagan traditions, learning and being guided by the various phases of the moon is a right of passage. To me it is no different to dressage for horses and obedience training for dogs. Get the foundation laid first and the rest will follow. This page will list the various significant phases of the moon for the year 2017.
