This is a perfect moment to release any negative energy, and focus on new beginnings. Whether it’s starting a new business, a new relationship, or pursuing a new passion, harness the New Moon’s energy to set goals and make positive changes in your life.

Take some time to meditate, journal, and tap into your intuition to gain clarity on your intentions and let the magic of the New Moon guide you.

Remember to trust your intuition and use your own personal style in your spellwork. And don't forget to thank the moon for her energy and guidance.

Waning Gibbous

Waning gibbous is a magical lunar phase that signifies transformation, release, and letting go. This is a time to reflect on what is no longer serving us and make space for new opportunities.

It is also a time to focus on gratitude and appreciate the blessings that have come our way. As the moon reaches its third quarter phase, we are reminded to trust in the cycle of life and know that new beginnings are just around the corner.

Third Quarter

The Third Quarter moon marks a time of letting go and releasing what no longer serves us. It's a time to evaluate the progress and lessons learned during the current lunar cycle and make necessary adjustments for growth.

This is a prime time to clear clutter and old habits, relationships or situations that no longer serve a purpose in our lives. It's also a time to focus on forgiveness and letting go of grudges or past hurt. This lunar phase encourages us to trust in the universe and have faith that things will work out for the highest good.

Waning Crescent

The Waning Crescent is the final phase before a new moon and is associated with introspection, release, and closure. Magic during this phase can focus on letting go of negative energy or situations, shedding bad habits or attitudes, and completing unfinished business.

Spells for banishing, breaking curses or unhealthy attachments are ideal for this phase. It’s also a good time for divination and dream work, as the veil between the physical and spiritual realms is at its thinnest. Use this time to reflect on the past and set intentions for the coming lunar cycle.
