New Moon
This is the period when the light of the Moon disappears, when there is no Moon in the sky. It is usually thought of as the period from three days before the New Moon until three days after it, and is generally regarded as a time of minimum energy, linked to the Crone Aspect of the Goddess, and a time for reflection and contemplation. The Spells chosen for the New Moon can be performed up to three days before and after the actual New Moon. These should be spells to symbolize change (or Major Change) within your life.

Waxing Moon
This is the period when the Moon is growing larger in the sky, but hasn't yet reached the Full Moon Phase. It starts from about 4 days after the New Moon, and lasts until three days before the Full Moon, and is generally regarded as a time of growing energy, usually linked to the Maiden Aspect of the Goddess. Spells to be performed during this time include positive change, luck, love and growth.

Full Moon
This is the period when the Moon has reached its Fullest capacity within the sky. It starts from about three days before the actual Full Moon, and lasts until about three days afterwards. Energy is considered to be at it's maximum, and is linked to the Mother Aspect of the Goddess. This is the perfect time for spells that increase psychic abilities and fertility.

The Waning Moon
This is the period when the Moon is decreasing in it's size. It starts about four days after the Full Moon, and lasts until about Four days before the New Moon. Energy is considered to be parting, waning alongside the Moon herself, and is linked with the Crone Aspect of the Goddess. Now is the time to perform spells that involve reversing spells, banishing and releases (though not if they are against the teachings in the Rede 'An it Harme none, Do as Ye Will!')

Full Moons of the Lunar Year
A Full Moon occurs once every 28 days so we normally have thirteen a year, generally one a month, but when there is a month that contains a second Full Moon that Moon is called a Blue Moon.
So there are thirteen Full Moons, and hence thirteen Esbats.
