Balsamic Moon - (of waning crescent moon) rises before dawn and sets midafternoon. She is the last sliver of Moon seen in the eastern sky in the dawn and in the very early morning. The Balsamic Moon is the COMPOST phase, when the nutrients remain in the soil, providing nourishment for the next new seed. Those who are born during the Balsamic Moon phase possess the potential to be wise, insightful, understanding and patient. They are prophetic and unique. This end of one cycle and the beginning of another. Keywords are: transition, release, transformation, renewal, and purity. It is the phase in a cycle when you must let go of everything you have been working on that does not deal with the current cycle issues. During this phase you reflect on the passing cycle and prepare for the new one. Trust in renewal. It is important to separate from others now so that you can clear the intellect of negativity. LET GO. Become still and meditate.
This is Tiu's Day - Mars Day, the Day of Activity and Physicality, Passion, and Desire. Hmm, these types of energies today could make for some hot times at the voting places.
The Monthly correspondence for November is Empathy.
The Dark Mirror
Dark Mirrors are used in much the say way as the Crystal Ball. Sitting before it, you have to unfocus your conscious mind and allow the subconscious to take over. Some Witches see images in the surface or, more often, just under it. Others find that images and/or words simply appear in their mind. Often it helps to work by candlelight, or to have candlelight reflected in the surface.
"In some, the difference between the subconscious
and unconscious is indeterminate."
Got leftover pumpkins sitting around? Well, check out Jonathan Bloom's blog: http://www.wastedfood.com/2010/11/02/jack-o-landfill/ today. He has suggestions for using up these orange babies. "pumpkins are the most wasted food in homes (by weight), as detailed in a soon-to-be published study that shall remain nameless. " he writes there. "We don't have to let our pumpkins go for naught. We can cook with their innards." So check out his blog entry on Pumpkins.
