Research and post detailed information on each of the following subjects as they relate to the mythos of Wicca.

The Moon and Magic
the lunar phase is important in determining the best time for magic. There are basically two lunar phases: waxing moon (ideal time for positive magic) and waning moon (ideal time for banishing/negative magic, study, and meditation). In between you'll have the dark moon (the time of greatest power for banishing and negative magic) and the full moon (the time of greatest power for positive magic).
Most witches and pagans work around these lunar phases. However, others, like Silver RavenWolf, suggest a much more complicated subdivision of the moon phases.

The Moon is a symbol of Nature's cycle of birth, life, and rebirth. It represents the feminine principle, which is personified by the Triple Goddess (Maiden/Mother/Crone). It is important to consider the appropriate lunar phases (Waxing, Waning, or Full Moon) when planning your magick. It is also extremely useful to align your spellwork to coincide with the appropriate astrological influences, to further aid your magickal goals. For example, spells and rituals involving the element of earth should be performed during a time when the Moon is positioned in one of the three astrological earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn, spells involving the element of fire during Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, spells involving the element of air during Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius, and spells involving the element of Water during Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces.

Lunar Eclipses
Eclipses represent the perfect union of sun and moon. Any type of magic is acceptable.
There are 2 types of lunar eclipse:
Partial eclipse
Penumbra eclipse of the moon

Blue Moon
Your geographic location can make a difference to your experience of a Blue Moon. Depending on your longitude you may go through a date change prior to other locations which means the full moon is at the first of your new month and falls at the end of the preceding month somewhere else. The "blue" one is always the 2nd full moon in the same month. The regular full moons of each month all have their own individual names as follows: Moon after Yule, Wolf Moon, Lenten Moon, Egg Moon, Milk Moon, Flower Moon, Hay Moon, Grain Moon, Fruit Moon, Harvest Moon, Hunters' Moon and Moon Before Yule.
Historically the Blue Moon was considered unlucky and a real nuisance when it occurred at various times of the year and upset scheduling of church festivals. In love songs the Blue Moon is often a symbol of sadness and loneliness.
The first appearance in print of this expression goes back to the time of Shakespeare, when some folks felt that sometimes the moon visually appeared blue in the sky. Although the expression dates all that way back, it has only recently come to mean the second Full Moon in one month. Blue Moon seems to be a truly modern piece of folklore, old folklore it is not, but real folklore it is.

New moon - Dark moon.
Dark moon occurs on either side of the new moon. The new moon is between the last of the waning moon and the beginning of the waxing moon. The new moon has the power of in-between, a time which is not a time, similar to midday, midnight etc. If doing a Dark Moon rite, the active part of the ritual should be a good 45 minutes out from the actual new moon as the energies can be erratic. Also, the waning moon allows you to calm down and tune out.
