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.

Ash, Benzion, Burdock, Cypress, Dandelion, Dittany, Elder, Frankincense, Hawthorn, Hazel, Heather, Jasmine, Mugwort, Myrrh, Oak, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Saint John's Wort, Scullcap, Tansy, Thistle, Willow, Woodruff

I'll be doing my first ritual for Hecate tonight


For me the dark moon is the last chance (and I think the best time) to release anything and everything you don't want to take into the new moon with you.
