Waning Day Moon

When I was a kid, not too many years ago if measured using eon scale, there was a saying to express hopeless incompatibilities. In other words, if you have this major problem between you and your flame, you are in very bad shape! And the myth was that the sun and the moon can never see each other. Nothing is further from the truth! So, if someone told you that you are like the sun, and she/he/she is like the moon, you still can have plenty of opportunities to see her/him/her once in a while, like today's sun is having a date with its moon in broad daylight. Did you know that you can never see a full moon in broad daylight? That is only possible at nights. During daylight, you can sometime see the moon in any other phases. For this month, full moon was on September 12th. That was a big day for festivities in countries like Viet-Nam and China when the full moon is greeted with tea ceremonies and moon cakes. Now the moon is waning and today, it is half way toward a new moon on September 27th. Waning Moon means the moon is decreasing in size, moving from the full circle towards the invisible new moon, but trust me, it's there.

Now, I am told that this is a time for spells that banish, release, reverse. This is a time to break bad habits or bad addictions, to end bad relationships. This is a time of deep intuition and a time for divination. At this time the moon represents the Goddess in her Crone Aspect, gives praise to Hecate, Morrigan or one of the other Crone Goddesses. I am not sure what to make of this teaching, but I would like to learn more about her Crone Aspect.

The nice elliptic-shaped leaves you see pointing to the half circle moon in the blue sky are that of my Ylang-Ylang. This view is due West and taken at 10am today. How do you like the deep blue of the Miami sky? This photo comes straight from my iPhone 4 with no retouch whatsoever.
