Moon Phase How It Effects Ghost Sightings and Hauntings

Look up at the moon, and here is what I try to remember in dealing with a hunting or investigating a ghost sighting, or strange paranormal phenomena.
Solunar influence will vary in intensity according to the position of the moon. The times of new moon (the dark of the moon), and there is no moon in the sky, is the time I believe of maximum Ghost sightings and haunted activity. Many will differ with this and state it is when the full moon is at it's peak. Here through my own research are factors that I use in the study of ghost and lunar cycles.

Brief Explanation of the Moon Phases

The phases of the moon are caused by the relative positions of the earth, sun, and moon. The moon goes around the earth, on average, in 27 days 7 hours 43 minutes.The sun always illuminates the half of the moon facing the sun (except during lunar eclipses, when the moon passes thru the earth's shadow). When the sun and moon are on opposite sides of the earth, the moon appears "full" to us, a bright, round disk. When the moon is between the earth and the sun, it appears dark, a "new" moon. In between, the moon's illuminated surface appears to grow (wax) to full, then decreases (wanes) to the next new moon.The edge of the shadow (the terminator) is always curved, being an oblique view of a circle, giving the moon its familiar crescent shape. Because the "horns" of the moon at the ends of the crescent are always facing away from the setting or rising sun, they always point upward in the sky. It is fun to watch for paintings and pictures which show an "impossible moon" with the horns pointed downwards.

 

As the new moon phase ends, the moon waxes, or appears to grow larger, and we see more of the moon's face. The lighted area increases over time from right to left from our perspective on Earth. When the sun­earth­moon angle is very small, we see only a thin bright curve, called the waxing crescent. Over the next seven days the angle between the sun, Earth, and the moon grows to 90 degrees. We see the sunlight spread to cover the right half of the moon. This is called the first quarter. The visible part of the moon continues to wax through the gibbous phase over the next seven days until we see the full moon.

As the cycle continues, we say the moon is waning, or growing smaller. The amount of lighted area we see decreases, and the darkened area increases from right to left. You can tell if the moon is waxing or waning by whether the right side of the moon is dark or light.

Another 14 days pass as the moon moves through the waning gibbous phase, then the third quarter, then the waning crescent phase, and seems to finally disappear in the new moon phase. Now we're back to where we started about a month ago!

Many Paranormal Investigators argue that the full or dark of the moon have a greater influence on a ghost habit of haunting at a certain period of time, or activity, but, both sides do agree that the moon itself plays a strong role in sightings and paranormal phenomena. But this is not the information that the novice ghost chaser knows or realizes. Through out the centuries, ghost filled tales and the part that the Moon's position have always been a main stay in horror Movies, novels and camp fire ghost stories. the moon is time keeper. A celestial clock that is too often ignored. I also feel that The moon does factor into an active, echo, and residual hauntings from my findings. When checking my documentation I always note what lunar cycle is active and find that it is peak during the dark of the moon.

Telling Haunted Time in a report is important!
The phase of the Moon can tell you the time of day. For example, because a full Moon is seen when the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun, an observer on the Earth will see the Moon rise just as the Sun sets. The next day, the Moon will rise approximately one hour later (because the Moon will have moved farther along on its orbit). This means that a waning half Moon will rise at midnight, a new moon at dawn, etc... If someone tells me they have seen a ghost I ask when the date. I always check my Lewellyn lunar calendar to see where the moon was in the sky at the time of the haunting. *(http://www.ktca.org/newtons/15/phases.html)

 

Many beginner or novice ghost hunters do not realize that documenting the moons position and time is an important part of a sighting and haunted investigation... If you see a sighting or have an experience remember the moon plays an important role in recreating the situation to witness a sighting once more. Many even well established investigators disregard the actual "Moon Phase" into their ghost haunting/paranormal Investigation, not realizing the importance this is to your ghost documentation.
In a report I try to include time and the moons phase knowing full well what effects I have documented in my haunted hunting. I know the moon goes through astrological signs every two days and I also not that the moon moves 1 degree every two hours. Then I just do the astrological math and add that to my documenting. Moon tables can be found in most astrology texts. The Moon, in Astrology, is the ruler of Cancer. The Moon represents our deepest personal needs, our basic habits and reactions, and our unconscious.

 

The Astronomical Lilith
The Moon travels along an elliptical path around the Earth. An ellipse has two focal points, and the other focal point, not occupied by the Earth has been called the Dark Moon, the Black Moon or Lilith. This is a slightly simplified definition, since, actually, the Moon and the Earth both move around their common center of gravity, and the path of the Moon is not a neat ellipse, but a rather wobbly affair. One must distinguish between the mean orbit of the Moon, which is a slowly elongating ellipse, and the actual orbit, which vaccilates around the mean path, due to interference of various kinds. Just as there a "mean" and a "true" Lunar Node, so there is a "mean" and a "true" ellipse and a "mean" and a "true" Lilith. I write "true" in inverted commas, because the Moon's Node is only "true" about twice per month, when the Moon is actually on it, for the rest of the time, it is as "untrue" as the mean Node. In fact, when working with a point so close to the Earth, one should also take the great parallax into consideration, i.e. consider, from which point on the Earth one is actually looking at a point in the heavens. Astrology observes the planets geocentrically, as if from the Earth's centre, and not topocentrically, from the actual place of the observer. http://www.astro.com/astrology/

Wiccan and occult practices of today including Voudon, Santeria and Voodoo rituals all coincide with the Time and position of the moon on it's course. Each of these has it's name of the moon and placing in it's ritual practice and traditions. Many mediums will not hold Seances during a wanning moon cycle. they feel this is a negative flow period or their own powers are at their weakest.

One well Known medium told me that when the moon is dark that's when the veil between the worlds is at it's thickest.

Many psychic that I have come to know have told me that they find they experience the drop or diminishing of their gift during this period. Medium and psychic alike state firmly that eclipse and seasonal periods effect them also, and they believe it also effects haunting's. and Spirit energy.
The Moon has always seemed a mysterious and powerful force to people everywhere. She moves the tides and guides the flow of magickal energies. Learning her ways, we can make our own magick join with Hers...
Successful magic depends on many factors. One of the most obvious things to consider is the timing of your spells and rituals with the phases of the Moon. When the Moon is waxing, it is growing larger in the sky. This phase lasts until the exact time of the Full Moon. From Full Moon to New Moon, is the waning phase where the Moon seems to disappear; until finally it is not visible to the eye for three nights. For this reason, this phase is sometimes called the Dark of the Moon or the Black Moon. Then the Moon starts once again to grow toward fullness.

The waxing Moon is the best time to do a spell for growth, beginning new projects, initiation and enhancement. During the waning Moon, do spells to banish evil influences, lessen or remove obstacles and illness, neutralize enemies, and to remove harm. The three days after the New Moon are the most powerful times to work spells for growth and beginnings which should manifest at the Full Moon. The days just before the Full Moon are the most powerful times for fruition and completion. The Black Moon is the most auspicious time for banishing and neutralizing spells. Remember that even though the Moon looks Full Moon in the sky for two or three nights, it is only EXACT at the time posted on your calendar. Anything after that time is a waning influence. Do your Full Moon spell before the exact time listed. (The First Quarter is the point between the New Moon and the Full Moon. The Last Quarter is the mid-point between the Full Moon and New Moon.) *Attune YOUR Magic - Phases of the Moon 2004

It to must be understood that the tides are governed by the phases and transit of the moon. Certain haunted phenomena occur with precise regularity during the lunar month and solar/lunar cycle. On any calendar month of the year.
Research has shown that a natural day for fish and many other
animal species differ from our own. Their biological clock
appears to coincide with lunar time, which is the time that it
takes for the moon to reappear at a given point during one
complete rotation of the earth (an average of 24 hours and 53
minutes. This is called a Tidal Day and explains why the
ocean tides are about an hour later each day - and why most
fish, fresh water species included, will feed up to an hour later
(in relation to our solar clock) each day. *Moonup~Moondown ... Library of Congress #72-93383

So might I suggest the next time you want to see a real ghost look up at the moon... It might just be part of finding that perfect haunted location to document! For more information, try searching for "moon phases" related terms on google!

GINA LANIER is a New Orleans native who has studied paranormal activities, the occult and hauntings for nearly thirty years. She has participated in and conducted large-scale location hauntings and recently has shifted her focus to include the investigation and study of haunted toys such as dolls, toy furniture, games and other hallmarks of childhood.

Gina’s paranormal studies stem from several childhood experiences with the unknown including witnessing full body apparitions and clairaudient encounters with deceased relatives. These experiences continued beyond childhood and this is when Gina resolved to learn as much as possible about psychic and paranormal phenomenon to determine what, exactly, was making contact with her and with others who claimed to have been contacted from the Other Side.

Gina owns and operates a construction and refurbishment company in the Greater New Orleans area and this has afforded her exposure to many allegedly haunted locations and people over the years; several of these clients welcomed Gina’s expertise and insight when it came to documenting and investigating their haunted homes and businesses.

Gina Lanier has been selected by Haunted America Tours as one of the lead investigators for its soon-to-be-launched Haunted Investigations Team (HIT). If you would like to contact Gina, please submit your request and as much information as possible about your situation to her care of the Haunted America Tours website.

Be sure to check back to visit Gina and all the HIT members in the HIT Forum section, COMING SOON!
