Waning Moon

The days just before the Dark of the Moon are best for doing alchemy/meditations for removal of anything that you don’t want from your life like bad habits, stress, negative energies, unsatisfying relationships, unfulfilling jobs, an unhealthy diet, or an anxious and negative mind.

The waning Moon is most beneficial for matters at a stage of consolidation, conservation, and completion. Cutting hair now will make it grow slower. Plant or replant plants that have fruits under the ground.

Dark Moon

This is a time to banish negative energies from our lives that we are serious about getting rid of. Any kind of alchemy/meditations you do at this time, you should know, will be VERY strong. Use it for banishing serious things like illnesses of the body and mind.

This time, we accept that we do not know all the answers and that everything that we need to learn will be revealed to us in time– and from that, we should feel peace.
