Hello all! Since tonight is a new moon, I thought I'd give you guys some spell tips for the night.
Waning to new is the best time to perform banishings and work on riding yourself of bad habits. On this night one may wish to work on renewal and set your intentions and goals for yourself and work. Personally, I think this is a good night to spend cleaning and reorganizing your room/space/altar/storage for magickal items and tools. Maybe a space cleanse or a home cleanse with smudges.
new moon stories (part 1 of 3) sorry for my terrible English, not a native speaker:
My parents are both teachers in an art school. One day between classes my mother was rushing to the toilet and she passed by a colleague who (being on a diet) was eating hard boiled eggs...
new moon stories (part 3 of 3):
...At home in the evening while undressing the egg fell off her bra right next to my father. He looked very puzzled so my mother decided to add to the confusion and said: "I don't know what's going on but this keeps happening to me lately!"

Today the Moon journeys through Cancer and does her monthly 'look deeply into Pluto's eyes', as the 'tall, dark and brooding' Lord of the Underworld stares at her from across the dance floor.
Monthly, while the Moon is in Cancer, she faces off with Pluto. Then later on, she embraces the old Lord of the Underworld, when she reaches Capricorn.
Twice monthly, we have the opportunity to meet Kali within.
Twice monthly we have an opportunity, handed in a platter, to witness and allow - tough as nails - our deeper emotions: negative, primal, raw, uncensored.
Easier said than done, especially in our culture of gurus of positivity, and 'don't rain on my parade' dismissive behavior.
The Moon speaks of emotional 'containers', where and how we can express what is coming up.
However, we often block our own emotional expression. 🔥
We hold back the tears, the anger, the desire to come undone, or to rage against it all.
We put ourselves into tight emotional clothes - the equivalent of emotional skinny jeans and stiletto heels (who invented that fashion torturous insanity?).
Since this message of holding it together (aka - be a good girl/boy and don't stir up things) is so introjected, perhaps we need to help each other by offering a space of witnessing.
I feel we have become illiterate to our own emotional ebb-and-flow and how to really exhale our emotions.
So if you or your friend want to cry - let them cry - don't tell them to stop crying or worse, ask why they are crying. Let them come to it in their own time. Just witness. Be present and allow. 🔥
Perhaps when we are able to hold space for each other in our grief, anger and rage, we will also be able to hold space for joy, contentment, and eros.
What needs witnessing for you today?
New Moon in Leo tomorrow brings forth the urge to create, and creation can only come after 'destruction'.

My favorite #moonphase is the #waningmoon 🌖 This lunar phase is the ideal time for deep intuition, to evaluate old habits and relationships as well as letting go. I love the act of releasing because too often the first instinct is to hold on.
