Prayer to the Moon Vanara Instrumental

The waning of the moon means the moon is decreasing in size, amount, intensity, or degree; decline and moving from the full moon towards the new moon to approach an end. It means a gradual decrease in magnitude or extent; decrease, lessening, drop off, a change downward. This period the moon goes from full to dark. The visible surface of the moon decreases.   

Immediately after the full moon, the moon starts waning. The period of the waning moon lasts about 14days. At the peak of the waning moon, the moon is known as the “waning crescent moon” and it looks like the letter “C”. This is the time witches cast spells that banish, get rid of, destroy, send away, reduces, release, reverse, and carry out a lot of divination. The enemy uses this to reduce people in so many ways and take away their glory. The enemy of your destiny will not succeed in taking away your glory in Jesus name. You will not diminish. You will not expire. Your glory shall not fade.

It is a time for strategic intercessors and the church of Christ to frustrate the spirits and altars that demand sacrifices at this time. I command the fire of God to burn down all the witches covens and shrines in Jesus name. Amen.

These prayers should be made at the 6pm watch. The angels sent by God to destroy the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah entered the city the previous evening at the gate of the new day from 6pm and met Lot at the city square (Genesis 19:1). The spirits that want to bind our cities to strange altars during the moon phases or other special occasions start entering the city at the eve of the day at the 6pm watch.

I am a little bit of an astronomy geek; not enough that I’ve taken to learning the complex math behind it, mind you, but enough that I know a bit about the phases of the moon.  Contrary to popular belief, the moon does not mirror the movements of the sun through the sky; predictably rising at sunset and setting in the wee morning hours.  Actually, during the course of a month the moon is eager enough that it will sort of “lap” the sun – by the time the new moon comes around, it’s actually rising at sunrise and setting at twilight!

I think this is the reason that a night-time prayer to Mani never worked for me.  Half the time, He just wasn’t around when I was trying to address Him.  Inspired by the structure of Raven Kaldera’s Moon Phase prayers, I decided to write a set of mini-devotionals to Mani that could be said at anytime I spotted Him, day or night, with hints to help me remember when to go looking.

One of the things I love about blogging is sharing my love of music. Music is one of the most powerful forces in the world, and it can be used to bring people together or tear them apart. It’s been used as a weapon by conquerors throughout history, and it’s also been used as a tool for peace and unity.

While there are lots of songs out there that will make you want to dance, this particular song has a very different effect on me it makes me want to pray. This instrumental piece is called “Prayer To The Moon Vanara,” and it was written by composer [composer name]. The title is derived from Hindu mythology: Vanaras were monkeys who lived in Kishkindha (the monkey kingdom) and helped Rama rescue his wife Sita from Ravana. In the story, they helped Rama build an army to battle against Ravana and defeat him.

This new way of honoring Him has been very effective – I find myself much more aware of the actual lunar cycles, rather than just conflating He and the Night together.

Hail to Mani, gleaming globe of the sky.

Declare the enchantments of the occult nullified and blotted out in the heavens by the blood of Jesus (Col 2:14).

The Earth’s moon has long been regarded and revered throughout the course of human history and by cultures across the world. References to the moon also appear throughout the Bible, including the Old Testament books studied by Christian, Jewish, and other spiritual practitioners in the western traditions.

Still, many who ascribe to these faiths, particularly Christianity, do not always recognize the significance the moon has in their beliefs historically. Nor do they recognize how the moon can be a vital tool in their spiritual practices even today.

Setting aside the more paganistic aspects of direct worship of the moon itself, Christians and other spiritual individuals can utilize the moon’s energetic influence to grow closer to God.

The following six points illustrate why God has gifted the moon to humanity as an eternal guide and how we might use the moon to enhance rituals of prayer.

1. See moon phases as bonus intercessions from the celestial Creator

God created and oversees the entirety of the universe, including the moon and stars and distant planets beyond Earth. While we humans may feel dominion over the earth we can see and touch, the moon and other celestial bodies stand for something larger and beyond our own limited human knowledge and capabilities.

As a rule, Catholics do not worship Mary, mother of Jesus, or the saints as they do God, but rather pray for and through their intercession. Arguably, so too can other parts of God’s creation perform similar roles in guiding our prayers and intentions.

And the moon may be one of the most powerful pilots of prayer that God has gifted humanity.

Historically, the moon is associated with feminine aspects of the self, particularly emotion, intuition, and the deeper, unseen parts of our being. In many western religious traditions, Mary symbolizes the divine feminine. Thus, Christians can also look to Mary as a guide — “the woman in the moon,” so to speak — while using this celestial body to hone and strengthen prayers and intentions.

2. Knowing moon phases guides your prayers and intentions

As the moon travels around the rotating Earth, its shape and illumination change to reflect its position between our perspective on the planet and the sun. A complete moon phase or lunar cycle, also referred to as a lunation or synodic period, lasts about 29.5 days, or just under one calendar month.

Within that approximately one-month cycle are four basic phases defining the sunlit portion of the moon during that time. Defining the start and end points of phases are the more widely recognizable aspects of the moon, such as the full moon, new moon, and “half” moon.

A typical lunation progresses as follows:

[New moon] → waxing crescent → [First quarter moon (“half” moon)] → waxing gibbous → [Full moon] → waning gibbous → Third quarter moon (“half” moon)] → waxing crescent → [New moon]

For millennia, ancient and modern cultures look to the moon and its changing phases to guide various tasks, activities, and religious rituals. This wealth of knowledge and experience can also empower practitioners of any spiritual doctrine, from Christianity and Judaism to atheism and agnosticism.

Let’s focus on two of the most powerful times of the moon cycle to provide examples for how the moon can strengthen prayer rituals for any spiritual practitioner. Research online and at your local library for more information on other moon phases and their symbolism (or check back here for future articles).

3. Plant the seeds of new beginnings with the new moon

During the new moon, the enlightened face of the moon remains hidden. In this gentle darkness, we can pull from ourselves our deepest desires and intentions for how we might improve our lives and strengthen our spiritual connection with God.

New moons signify the start of a new moon cycle. The energy of this moon can guide your prayers toward fresh starts and new beginnings for yourself, loved ones, your congregation, or anyone else you hold in your intentions.

At this time, the key is to consider what you would like to manifest in your life, in both the near and distant future. Then direct your prayers and intentions toward the great manifestor, God the Creator, to assist you in lighting the way on your path toward successful attainment of these goals and aspirations.

As the moon gradually brightens between the new moon and full moon, God continues to illuminate the changes needed within and without yourself and your surroundings. Then it is your responsibility to act upon what God reveals to make way for these intentions to become manifest in your daily life.

At this dark and mysterious time of the moon’s cycle, look to Jesus for faith and hope in the rebirth of yourself each month. This doesn’t have to be a massive overhaul of your schedule, hobbies, or personality as a whole.

But fulfillment comes from focusing on at least one positive change, however small it may seem, that you can manifest in your life. Then look to Jesus, Mary, and the saints as an example of following through on what God illuminates to you as the days and nights progress.

4. Look within for spiritual guidance during the full moon

The full moon represents the symbolic and energetic qualities of power, amplification, illumination, and action, as well as enhancing intuition and insight by diving deeper into the subconscious.

They say the laws of nature given to us by God are written on our hearts. This makes the illuminating full moon one of the best times of the lunar cycle to peek inside at what those deep inner messages might be telling us.

The full moon signifies a time of harvest, or reaping what you’ve sown, since setting your intentions for manifestation during the new moon.

In addition, the full moon is all about letting go or releasing that which does not serve our spiritual growth. If you’ve felt the call to release harmful habits, addictions, relationships, or possessions, now is the time to make room in your heart and soul.

God’s presence is massive and takes up as much space in our lives and souls as we allow. And that’s not just space in our external environments, our homes or schedules, but internally too — in our thoughts, emotions, and deepest inner being.

Mindfully release during the full moon whatever does not align with your spiritual purpose and ascent. This facilitates our ability to more efficiently harvest and wholly delight in what we’ve been working to achieve in our daily lives, with God’s help.

When the moon is full, we can also strengthen our connection to Mary, Mother of Jesus and, by extension, all creatures of heaven and earth.

For many cultures throughout the world, the full moon celebrates the mother aspect of the divine feminine. Any intentions prayed for through Mary’s intercession and the rosary enjoys an extra boost at this time.

5. Astrological signs of the moon phase can also influence intentions

This point may feel more heretical to Catholic readers, but consider this: Catholics pray through the intercession of the saints without actually deeming them “gods” in their own right. In a sense, this hierarchy of intercessions offers an enhanced pathway for prayers and intentions to the one true God, or Source, in the highest.

Similarly, pagan cultures may direct their intentions and prayer rituals to a hierarchy of godly beings. They may pray to one god or goddess for a successful harvest and another for the birth of a child. But in many of these cultures still resides some form of a “leader” god, such as Zeus in Greek mythology, who ultimately oversees all.

So, let’s ponder this comparison in the name of spiritual unity. Could it not be argued that the saints in the Catholic tradition parallel the significance of other “lesser” gods to whom non-monotheistic spiritual practitioners might pray for more specific intentions?

Taking this one step further, astrological signs generally correspond to cosmic forces and entities reflected in many of the gods and goddesses in mythology and other polytheistic and spiritual belief systems.

So in this context, Catholic and Christian readers, consider astrological signs as prayer “guides,” like the saints or seasons of the liturgical year (Advent, Lent, etc.), rather than “gods,” or false idols.

Still with me? Awesome.

That said, knowing the astrological sign that corresponds to the time of the lunar cycle can guide the substance of prayer intentions for anyone, including Christians.

And, it can even influence the specific saints you choose to pray to or through, depending on your religious beliefs.

For example, astrological signs are often associated with certain human capabilities and characteristics, such as Capricorn symbolizing responsibility and discipline. When the moon is in Capricorn, this might guide your prayers toward strengthening your work and professional life, particularly praying through St. Joseph, patron saint of workers.

Astrological signs also associate with different parts of the body. When a particular sign is present in the lunar cycle, you could pray for healing of that body part for yourself and others. Or you could pray to strengthen that body part to assist with an ongoing or upcoming task or goal.

For example, when the moon is in Taurus, which governs the neck and throat, this might guide your prayers toward saints of communication and public speaking for an upcoming speech or presentation.

Or with the moon in Leo, the lion, which represents the heart, you may focus your prayers to God that day on the healing of heart-related maladies, such as high blood pressure or heart disease.

The key is seeing astrological signs not only as a tool for fortune-telling or heresy, but simply as a way to let the stars (and saints) guide your intentions more clearly and directly to God.

And, most importantly, the lesson here is to not shun others for beliefs which ultimately may not entirely differ from your own. Sometimes it just takes looking at a spiritual concept through a different lens or perspective.

6. Recite short prayers whenever you glance up at the moon

A one- or two-line personal prayer is easy to remember and associate with different phases of the moon, even if only for the more recognizable full, new, half, and crescent moons.

Anytime you catch a glimpse of the moon, take that moment to center yourself. Thank God for the moon, this beautiful piece of creation we are blessed to look upon each night, as steady and assuring as the rising sun.

For example, when you glance up at a crescent moon, you could recite (aloud or to yourself):

Dear God, tonight’s crescent moon smiles down on me, reminding me of the joy you feel when I praise your good works and cherish your graces. Thank you for this blessing, and feel my smile radiating back to you. Amen.

The moon provides light in the darkness, as does our faith. See the moon as yet another addition to your prayer toolbox, and use it mindfully to construct a stronger and more radiant home for God to reside within you.
