The 2020 Spell-a-Day Almanacs have shipped. I just turned in an article for the 2021 Witches’ Companion. So I thought it should get back to posting on the blog, when and where appropriate.

Dark Moon. It’s a time of low light, at least as far as the moon is concerned. But it’s also a day of huge power as far as releasing what we no longer need, pushing or cutting away what no longer works.

The day before the dark moon is my lowest energy day of the month. It’s hard to do anything, to focus on anything.

But the dark moon itself feels powerful. I am motivated to clean, both on physical and emotional levels, in preparation for a new cycle.

How will I deal with that today?

Tonight, in my before-bed meditation, I won’t even light candles. I will sit in the dark. I will release something specific (that I cannot discuss publicly) that is blocking me from moving forward the way I need to. I will push it from my life so that tomorrow, I can make a fresh start.

There are plenty of cutting away rituals and separation rituals. Over time, I am sure we will discuss them. But tonight, on this particular night, I want a quiet separation, not something dramatic.

Remember, even when you release energy, you should still ground before and after. Grounding helps keep you steady, and prevents stuck energy from giving you dis-ease.

Tonight, I will sit.

Tonight, I will follow my breath.

Tonight, I will relax into the release.
