Traditionally astrology played a huge role in spells and rituals, but nowadays some people claim to be not so difficult to overcome bad aspects or to do rituals without following moon phases.
What’s your opinion?
If i’d like to perform a ritual for success or luck, but there’s a bad Sun or Jupiter, or moon is waning what to do?
Or if I’d like to perform a love/lust candle/hoodoo spell, but Venus is bad or moon is waning, the ritual should be disrupted?
Even more in depth: if Venus is exalted but moon is waning?
If in my natal chart Mars and Saturn are severely afflicted, should i be extremely careful or even totally avoid as a beginner, to work with them for obtaining courage, power, passion or perform baneful/attack/dark rituals?
