When is New Moon magick best?
New moon magick can be done the day of and up to 3 and ½ days after the new moon. But day of has the best strongest full effect.
Any spells or rituals practiced at this time are very intense and not to be taken for granted.

solar vs lunar
The difference in the energy of a solar eclipse and the lunar eclipse are just that...the sun and the moon.
The solar energy does not pertain to the triple moon goddess. It belongs to our life-giving, heat-making, plant-growing sun. The energy equivalent of an entire year happens in a few moments. This is why it is so powerful and not something to play with. New moons are normal every month thing for magick practitioners but eclipses are very special.
