The Waning Moon depicts the Triple Goddess in her Crone form. The Crone is the wise woman, the embodiment of all her life and experiences. She is now a complete Witch. While she knows her current life is coming to an end, her wisdom allows her to see further so she has no fear of death. She knows that everything has to end, hence this is the only way to begin anew.
In a general sense, the Waning Moon is the period when everything comes to an end and then there's a new light of renewal. This Moon phase is excellent for spells involving cleanliness, banishing, purification and others that are able to leave unwanted things behind giving room to the new.
Below are some simple spells for you:
Waning Moon Spell: CleanlinessNecessary items:
- 1 bottle with spray
- 1 bowl or pot
- 1 Onyx
- 1 transparent Crystal
- Some Water
- Some Cloves
- Lavander essential oil
- White Rose petals
- Peppermint leaves
Preparing the spell:
Take the bowl or the pot and fill it with enough water to fill the bottle with spray. Put the other ingredients - Onyx, Crystal, 3 Cloves, 3 drops of Lavander essential oil, some white rose petals, and some peppermint leaves - into the bowl. This mixture must be under the Sun during all day. When the night falls, take the bowl and drop only the water into the bottle with spray. Now you have a magic potion for cleanliness. Use the spray during the Waning Moon to clean places, animals or people. Spray it to the 4 directions when you want to clean a space or spray it on the head of an animal or person.
Waning Moon Spell: BanishingNecessary items:
- 1 bottle with cork
- 2 coffee grains
- 2 Rue leaves
- A small piece of Snake Plant
- Some Lavender leaves
- White Rose petals
- Some Garlic husk
- Some pins
- A piece of coal
- Coarse salt
- Sea water (optional)
- Black candle
Put all the items inside the bottle and take it, without the cork, to the Waning Moon. Offer it to the Goddess and summon her powers into each item you put inside the bottle. Now ask Her to banish all the negative energy that may be interfering in your life and in your home. Put the cork and seal the bottle with the black candle wax.
Leave the bottle hidden where no one can find it. This spell must only be cast when the situation is unbearable!
Waning Moon Spell: Purification
- A symbol that represents the problem
This is a very simple and powerful rite. This can be done to get rid off of a bad habit, idea or guilty that may be in your life. Take the symbol that represents your problem and, during the Waning Moon night, throw it into a strong fire. While it burns, visualise the problem becoming ashes and disappearing from your life.
To find the right symbol you just have to think a little. For example, if the problem is "eating too much", you can throw a little bit of your favourite food into the fire; If the problem is "smoking", you can throw a cigarette. If you can't find a material item to symbolise your problem you can draw or write something on a paper and throw it.
