Last Quarter Moon - The moon is 21 to 24.5 days from the New Moon. It is also 270-315 degrees ahead of the sun. The crescent shape turns westward, to the realm of death. The power of the moon is now waning, being drawn inside for later use. Cast spells now requiring resolution or for something to
be concluded. The waning moon is used for banishing magick, for ridding oneself of addictions, illness or negativity. The Last Quarter moon (or waning half) rises around midnight and sets around noon. Astrologically the moon is square to the Sun. She is visible from the time she rises until she sets. The Last Quarter is the HARVEST phase - the moon plant gives her life so that others may continue theirs.
Those born in a Last Quarter phase have p0owerful internal lives of reflection and transformation. They can assume different roles while balancing their internal and external worlds.
Woden's Day - Mercury Day - the Day of Communication and Connection... there are minor magickal energies for honoring your ancestors and for achieving clarity.....
"For clarity you must use allspice,
For truth a violet candle is nice.
Unwanted emotion in your home?
Burn St. Johnswort until it's gone."
[From "Seasons of the Witch Datebook]
