The moon phases and the elements

Do the magical elements operates according to the moon phases? Fire for instance is the element of change, so I use fire in waxing moon to for instance make a girl creating a dating profile and waning moon to make her delete her dating profile?
I ask because I want to understand magick better.

I work with the moon phases but I never consider associating elements to the phases. Personally, I associate the moon itself with water. But ig you can use the properties of the other elements to enhance your workings.

It is interconnected, but Im not sure as simple as that. In the Mystical Qabalah by Dion Fortune, which is a textbook primer on magic itself, states that the cycles of life, as say a farmer views the seasons, and his cause and effect, yes there is a cycle that connects with a moon phase, and inevitable these are correspondences of elements. So the answer is probably yes.

I would recommend getting a physical copy of Agrippas Three Books of Occult Philosophy and start by looking at the charts themselves, then go start reading; also Mystical Qabalah by Dion Fortune and really try to understand what she is getting at in descriptions of the sephiroth.

Indeed the moon phases work that way (waxing-create, waning-delete) although in general and not just “elementally”. The creation of the profile may also correspond to air, this one being the element of communication.

I have associated it with fire because fire is action. Creating a profile is action motivated by will or desire. Air is associated with the mind.
