Celebrate The Dark Moon

Celebrate The Dark Moon Image
The Moon has waned completely, and it appears that it has vanished. This is what is called the "Dark of the Moon"; it signifies death, although that does necessarily mean physical death. This is the last cycle of the Moon, and on this night, you will actually see no Moon at all; it doesn't matter how long you stay up and watch. You won't find it. Why? Because the Dark Moon which is now conjunct with the Sun, rises at sunrise and sets at sunset.

Many people believe that the Dark Moon holds the same power as the Full Moon and that this is traditionally the best time in the cycle to do divination. Vision quests and deep meditations are called for at this time to focus on personal matters, questions and answers.

To celebrate the Dark Moon, spend time outdoors on the night of the astronomical Dark of the Moon... Outside on a dark night, when there is darkness all around and the soul stands alone, we find ourselves in an abyss, separated from the visual world. Contemplate the Dark Goddess, Her veiled face turned away. Examine your own hidden face and the dark side of the soul within you.

Reach out and connect with the deep stillness of her energy. Meditate on darkness and endings, that which must end or flow away. Recognize that all things have a season and a cycle, a time to be and a time to end. Identify and release endings in your own life--past, present and future.
