Introduction - Waning Moon to Dark Moon

Waning Moon to Dark Moon

This section contains the activities for magical works performed during the Crone Moon and Veiled Moon Esbats. These works involve magic for banishing, restricting, binding, reducing, diminishing, ending, and cleansing, as well as for communication, journey, meditation, divination, and psychic development. While the mansion energies in the Waning to Dark Moon phases are generally negative, malevolent, or diminishing, some of these can ultimately provide a positive result, and the others can be warded, banished, or counteracted through magical works. Creativity and focus are part of the magical process in turning the negative energies to beneficial use.

The symbols and items I use within the magical works are drawn from the correspondences that are part of my practice, but you may substitute from your own customary correlations as long as you understand the energy being moved in the working. To better facilitate this, I state the purpose or function at the beginning of each magical work. There are some mansions that overlap zodiac signs, so these will have magical works relevant to the influence of both signs.
