The moon is drawing close to it's new phase coming up on Wednesday. Today it passes into the astrological sign for this New Moon and it is rising later each morning and setting later each later
afternoon. This is Moon Day (Monday) and there are minor magickal energies for resolving domestic issues. Moon Day is the Day of Remembering and Feeling.
The moon becomes dark at about 28 days after the new moon. In our current cycle, which is a 30-day cycle this time, the moon becomes the dark moon on the 29th-30th days which will be today and tomorrow, with Wednesday being the day the New Moon occurs at 8:28AM EDST. Now is the time to use the dark moon for inner reflections, the dark deities, and personal journeying. The day before the New Moon, which is actually be tomorrow, is another day when magick is very potent. So this can make today the waning to dark, tomorrow the dark moon and then Wednesday is the New Moon day. It is said that when you can no longer see the moon in the sky, which at this point in the lunar cycle would be in the early morning hours of 5:00AM til after 6:00AM, then moon is in its dark phase.
