   Yes, there she is in all her glory - Medusa.  I have always been drawn to reading Medusa and what her lessons are.  I feel she has often been given a bum rap by the Greek patriarchal panetheon.  In her book "Mysteries of the Dark Moon: The Healing Power of the Dark Goddess" Demetra George explores Medusa in depth and gives us different views with which to look at Her.   Medusa is given in the ruling goddesses of the days of a lunar cycle this time period when the moon has past the Last Quarter and is waning nightly in the late night skies.  Medusa asks us to take this darkening time to examine ourselves and look at our self in the mirror of our soul.  This is a time in the lunar cycle to begin preparing for the last few days of the waning crescent moon and when we move to Hecate's ruling days of the cycle.

But I do not have all gloom and doom to talk about during this waning moon time.  On http://mothermoonsmessage.blogspot.com/

   there is a wonderful November giveaway in progress.  She is offering a beautiful set of wooden runes carved and a beautiful box in which to put them.  Take a look:

Now isn't that a beautiful work of art!!  So check out Mother Moon's Message blog and enter the giveaway.  While there you will have several great entries to read if you haven't been there before.
I find her blog to be wonderful.

Last Quarter Moon:  Keywords - realignment, revision, integration, cleansing. It is the time in a cycle to take closing action, to follow-up and complete the activities begun at the New phase. During this phase you become aware of what is and is not workjing with repect to the achievement of your goal for the cycle. The movement is toward integration. Open to your success.  MANIFEST YOUR GOAL. Be responsible.

Moon in Virgo - Mutable Earth Sign - 'I analyze'

During this transit, important issues are practicality, organization, cleaning up your diet or your house,
healing your body or offering healing to others and attending to loose ends. After the Leo party time
transiut, it's time to clean up our act and turn our attentions to the matter of our health and hygiene.
Practical Virgo cleans the house, sets things in order, washes the dog (which actually I am thinking
of doing), and harvests the vegetables. She purifies and organizes our diet which sets us on the
healthy road for the month/lunar cycle. It is a time of taking responsibility and cleaning up the
messes we've been leaving. Virgo brings painstaking attention to detail: housecleaning is a good
way to work through a Virgo transit.
During Virgo Moon transit, women are mentally active but there is a tendency to excessive criticism
both of oneself and others. Emotionally it's an inward time, when we can reflect on personal relationships and perhaps look into Medusa's mirror/face.
