Balsamic Moon - (or waning Crescent Moon) rises before dawn and set late
midafternoon. She is the last sliver of the Moon seen in the eastern sky in the
dawn and in the very early morning. 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 something to be
concluded. The waning crescent is used for banishing magick, for ridding
oneself of addictions, illness or negativity. The Balsamic Moon is the COMPOST
phase, when the nutrients of the moon plant remain in the soil, providing nourishment
for the next new seed. This phase is ending of one cycle and the beginning of another.
Keywords for the Balsamic Moon phase are: transition, release, transformation,
renewal and purity. It is the phase in a lunar 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.
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.
