At this time each month, lunar energies are at their lowest ebb, giving us an opportunity to withdraw from outward striving so we can rest, reflect, and prepare for the new lunar cycle about to begin. Take advantage of this natural time of stillness to enhance your enjoyment of the equinox: set aside time for meditation, time alone in nature, or a peaceful meal at home with loved ones.
The Balsamic Moon (or 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. This is end of one cycle and the 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. 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 who are born in a Balsamic Moon phase possess the potential to be wise, insightful, understanding and patient. They are prophetic and unique. The Balsamic Moon is called the Wishing Moon because this Is a good time for putting wishes on the air. A wish made at the Balsamic Moon is more likely to come true because Needs are felt more deeply now. The more deeply a need is felt, the More invocative energy goes into the Moon cycle and the more likely This need will be met. —-A Witch’s Daily
