Dark Moon Magic
Contemplation, inner work, rejuvenation, beauty, health, personal improvement, planning, plotting and looking ahead. A time of introspection, self-analysis and reflection. This is really ‘you’ time, make the most of looking after and doing things for yourself. Relax, rest and recuperate. Meditate, contemplate and just ‘be’. It is a total introvert time of the Moon. Clear your head, get some clarity and gain some perspective. It is kind of like a quiet peaceful pause, before the whole Moon cycle starts again.
