My focus tends to be bath rituals on the Dark Moon but I have slowly transitioned over to bath rituals on the New Moon instead as I feel it’s time to shift with the tides from endings to new beginnings.
When the moon is invisible, it signals that all has been cleared, and it’s time to have a new beginning. It’s thought of as a good time to gather ideas, thoughts and plan ahead for the coming month or so.
Waxing Crescent Moon
Think about this time as planting a seed. The new moon gave you a chance to think about what it is that you want to accomplish, but the waxing crescent asks us to make it known, and develop our willpower to push it into fruition.
Waxing Quarter Moon
When the moon looks as if its cut in half, it signals that action is ready to be taken. If we discover any obstacles that block our path, we must be steadfast and overcome them.
Waxing Gibbous Moon
The waxing gibbous moon is there when we are close to our goals, but we need to assess their viability. Perhaps your original desire is not possible at this time, but a different version of it is.
The full moon is also known as the harvest moon, and as the name suggests, it is a time to receive the gifts of your past intentions, and even of your current one - if you’re lucky. From this period, the moon will go from waxing to waning, signaling our journey to look inward instead of out. If you’re looking for a tarot spread, we have a small sneak peek of one that is available on one of our apps.
Waning Gibbous Moon
While your actions and their reactions are still clear in your memory, it’s a good time to reflect. This stage, like its waxing mirror, is also one for refining, but this time, instead of looking at events, and what you can do, think about how you feel. Again, the waning period is all about looking internally.
Waning Quarter Moon
After thinking carefully about your internal compass in the last phase, now it is time to release and let go of those habits and thought processes that hold you back. Forgive yourself and cleanse in preparation fro the next phase.
Waning Crescent Moon
This is a time for recuperation. To be fully open to the next cycle, one must completely be relieved from this one.

A/N: Caro, I’m so so sorry it took me so long to write this. Congrats on your milestone! You’re awesome!
Sitting under the lights of the basketball court, you nursed
a bottle of beer that you had been sharing with three other people. Sam sat on
the orange ball, sweat dripping down his forehead. Steve’s cheeks were red from
running, his blond hair sticking to his forehead. And while Bucky was wearing
his basketball shorts, he had spent the entire evening with you.
“I gave Rogers a proper thrashing,” Sam announced proudly.
Steve rolled his eyes. “You wish.”
Normally you would have been laughing and cheering, but not
tonight. It was your last night with your three best friends and you were
feeling pretty nostalgic.
