What would you give for some serenity?
Sometimes staying well in a chaotic can feel like a full time job.
It's part of why I love working with the moon: it's so simple.
While attraction and manifestation work get a lot of press,
there is a deep, clear, calming magick that comes with Releasing.
The waning moon in particular brings deep peace, grounding and creative direction.
Release, space, closure, clarity.
If we're feeling The Stuckness:
Stagnation and confusion
Fear of getting started
Low self esteem
Muddy communications and mixed messages
Funks (not the good kind)
Anxious thoughts, Tunnel vision, Paranoia...
Waning moon inspiration can be the perfect medicine.
