At Coventry, this is not just a gimmick but part of the recipe. We watch the lunar progression through the celestial bodies of the zodiac and schedule our candle production accordingly. Why do we do that, you ask? It’s because the moon influences our planet so intimately it can affect the outcome of our day-to-day lives. We harness that energy and use it for good in our Blessed Herbal candles, Affirmations, and Blessing Kits.
We follow the phases of the moon, too. Our moon wanes, waxes, hides, and shows us her full glory. Each phase sends us a message that it’s time to grow, rest, dream, or take action. Our candles do the same thing for our customers. They help you know when it’s the best time to plan or actively create. So if the moon is waning (getting smaller) and you need money, our money candles will focus the energy on making your bills smaller so your bottom line can grow. It’s all in your perspective.
We also know that the moon is never wrong! Sometimes the perfect lunar phase and alignment are not jiving with our production needs. The candles still have to get made, but how do we keep them magical if the moon seems in opposition to the magic of the candles? We cheat! (It’s not really cheating—it is fine-tuning the energy to work with the magic we are manifesting for you.) For instance, sometimes we need to make an Attraction/Love candle when the moon is waning (getting smaller). What we do is align that day’s magic with getting rid of the fears and blocks that stop you from attracting love into your life.
Jacki teaches about this in her book, Coventry Magic with Candles, Oils & Herbs. In it you can find Coventry’s magical philosophies and much, much more. So, enjoy the moon in whatever phase she is in and make every moment magical!
