There are minor magickal energies today for resolving quarrels with friends/lovers. This is waning moon energies working for you.
Dark of the Moon Magick
This phase of the moon is the three nights when no Moon is visible at all. It's timing can be 3:00Am rising and setting in the late afternoon. Despite the oddity of this, it is around 10:00AM that the strongest pull of the Dark moon happens. Workings for the Dark Moon phase can be about Addictions, Change, Divorce, Enemies, Justice, Obstacles, Removal, Separation and Stopping stalkers and theft. Meditations involve reaching within yourself to pull out unwanted thoughts or desires. Examine them and dismiss them. Path work with the Dark Goddesses to receive their most exquisite gifts. And the continue the mind movie for positive workings in your life. This is the time to move within self, to explore our darkest recesses and understand our angers and passions, steering the m to work for us in a positive way. Dealing with attackers is best done during the Dark Moon phase.
In your early days of studying and learning about the Craft you may well have been advised not to work any magick at this time. This is because the energies of this period can be very uncertain and a lot time may have to be devoted to undoing rash or ill-advised spells which have gone wrong. As the energies can be so fickle, always divination to ascertain the potential results of any spells which you feel you must work at this time.
Dark Moon Goddesses - some suggestions - Kali, the Morrigan, the Calliech, Lilith, and Hecate. One I have just read about recently is Pasht: Egyptian Goddess - This dark form of cat-headed Bast is associated with destructive magick. No crone, Pasht can bring the power of feline nimbleness and persistence to a Dark Moon rite, making your desired effect manifest regardless of the types of obstacles it encounters.
