Balsamic Moon - The Balsamic Moon (or waning crescent moon) rises before dawn and sets in late afternoon. 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 of a lunar cycle, when the nutrients remain in the soil, providing nourishment for the next new seed. This the end of one cycle and beginning of another. Keywords for the Balsamic phase 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 coming up. 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. Those born during a Balsamic moon phase possess the potential to be wise, insightful, understanding and patient. They are prophetic and unique.
