You have heard of the New Moon and the Full Moon and all of the phases in between. But, what is the Dark Moon?
The Dark Moon is the period of time between when the moon is invisible and when the first sliver of the New Moon arrives. Hey, isn’t that the new moon? Guess what? No, that is wrong. You can read more about the Dark Moon here. Go ahead, I’ll wait . . . . . .
Now isn’t that interesting! If you think about your body’s response to the phases of the moon; and if you are using the moon to manifest and release, this takes it to a whole new level. Or maybe that is just me. It does take awhile for me to put two and two together.
Maybe you are different, but when the calendar says it’s the new moon, the last thing I feel like doing is being positive and starting a manifesting cycle. I was never in the mood being all cranky, irritable, and achy . What I thought was the New Moon was actually, the Dark Moon. Now everything makes sense. Finally! Or until my next new understanding.
So, go ahead and use this time to release the negativity and honor your body. Let the negative energies flow through you and release them. Then you will be all ready to start anew with the first sliver of that New Moon.
On an aside note, those who practice magic and cast spells, apparently, have been using the Dark Moon for such things all along.
Do as you will, but harm none. I’m just concentrating on the manifesting part. For now, anyway. One never knows where I might end up (wink wink).
