Spellcraft that pertains to beginnings is best carried out when the moon is new. This is appropriate lunar phase during which to create magickal tools, start a new project, and cast spells and preform rituals involving such things as new ideas, wish magick, the hunt, and bringing something into beings.
According to ancient occult tradition of England, the third day immediately following a new moon is an "auspicious day for most undertakings."
New Moon Wish -
To meet who you need in your life - not necessary who you want.
Face the new moon and say, "thank you for all my blessings, for I know I have more than some. All hail, new moon, all hail thee! I prithee, good moon, reveal to me, this night who shall my true love be." With your left hand blow the new moon twice a kiss. Then say "So shall it be."
This spell should induce prophetic dream that will show you who your future mate should be.

When the moon is moving from new to full we refer to it as waxing because the light is waxing, or growing fuller. It is a tradition to work magic for increase or gain, to attract and enhance the positive, during the waxing moon phase.
This is the appropraite lunar phase during which to cast spells and preform rituals involving such things as friendships, harmony, happiness, and positive change.
