The boring, scientific definition of lunar phases comes from NASA and reads, “The moonlight we see on Earth is sunlight reflected off the Moon's grayish-white surface. The amount of Moon we see changes over the month — lunar phases — because the Moon orbits Earth and Earth orbits the Sun. Everything is moving.” While that may be the standard definition of what happens, lunar phases, and particularly, the full moon has deeper meaning in folklore and mythology. Many Pagans and Wiccans celebrate full moons with Esbat. An Esbat is a Wiccan meeting that is used as a celebration of the full moon and held monthly. It is also a time to practice spells for “wholeness, children and mothers, families, psychic enhancement, and love”.
