Waning Moon
The period between the Full Moon and the New Moon is called the
Waning Moon. This is a time for banishing and rejecting things in our
lives that we no longer wish to carry around with us. Negative
emotions, bad habits, diseases, and ailments can successfully be
banned during this time.*
During the Waning Moon the Mother Goddess is transformed into the
Crone. Invoke Her in this guise.
The Crone, or Dark Mother, sometimes called the Hag, has black as her
color, the color of darkness where all life rests before rebirth.
This aspect of the Goddess is Winter, night, wisdom, counsel, the
gateway to death and reincarnation, the Waning Moon.
