Full Moons and New Moons of 2018


Yeah, yeah, yeah! We already had one full moon this month, but that doesn't mean it's too late to figure out the rest of the year. As witches, the moon cycle is pretty important to our magical workings, so it's good to know when that moon is gonna do its thing! Please not that all of these dates are in Eastern Standard Time (EST). If you would like to find the exact dates and times of the full and new moons in your area, please go to Time and Date.

There are two blue moons this year, January 31 and March 31. This means there are two full moons in a month.  Double the magic! There is also a lunar eclipse on January 31st, so be on the lookout for that. The eclipse will change the magical workings for that night, so make sure you align correctly.

I searched for the new moon names, and unfortunately came up empty. Oh well! Maybe one of you will know the names. I would sure like to know, so please feel free to share in the comments or send me an email. I found one site claiming to have found the New Moon names, but after doing some digging, the names were incorrect.

I hope everyone has a wonderful 2018 and that it is full of magic!
