Moon Days: Charge of the Dark Goddess

In honor of the darkening Moon and the Crone within us all:



Charge of the Dark Goddess

"Listen to the words of the Dark Mother, who of old was called Hecate, Nuit, Morrigan, Banba, Erda, Macha, MotherNight, Sekhmet, and many other names:

Whenever you seek wisdom, at the time of the Darkening Moon, come together in love and trust and learn of Me, who am the Wisest of Crones...Ye who search the mysteries of the Earth, the secrets of Air and Darkness, of Blood and Fire, the silence of the uttermost stars, come unto me, and I shall whisper to you in the depths of midnight.

Ye shall approach Me in silence, and as a sign that ye are free from fear, your breast you shall bare to My blade...for fear has no place in My mysteries, and that which you seek of me will destroy you if you fear it.

For I am the dolmen arch beyond which stretch the mysteries of infinity. I am the silence before birth and after death. I am the clouded mirror in which you scry your own soul. I am mist in the twilight, the vast and starry sky of midnight, shadows on the Moon.

All things come to Me in the end, and yet I am the beginning of all. I meet you at the crossroads, I lead you through the darkness, My hand you grasp in the passage between the worlds. To those that toy with Me am I an instrument of self-destruction. yet to the true seeker do I bring knowledge beyond mortal comprehension.

Of you shall I demand the utter truth of all that you are, and in return shall I give you all that you may be, all that I am. For My wisdom is beyond the Ages, and knowledge of My Secrets is power over self, over fear, over death. Nor do I demand aught of you which you cannot give. For I am the Mother of Mysteries, and as you know Me, so shall you learn to know yourself."

Moon Days: Lunar Beauty

via
I really try to follow the Moon phases for my beauty routine. The Moon really affects our bodies through each of the different phases, so take note how She affects you. I hate to generalize, as everyone is different, but try this out for month and see how it works for you! I would love to know!

New Moon: This is a great time to start a detox or new diet or lifestyle change. The sun and moon energies are aligned and the New Moon marks new beginnings. It will be easier and your body will respond more. Get out your dandelion tincture and start adding it to your tea!

Waxing Moon: Our bodies absorb the best during this time, so drink lots of water, eat plenty of fresh fruit and veggies, and apply the lotions and potions for maximum efficiency. Want your hair to grow faster? Cut it during the Waxing moon to stimulate more hair growth. Also, I try to incorporate more movement and exercise during this energy of growing movement.

Full Moon: The Full Moon is the peak of the cycle, so this is the best time to have a facial, and applying face masks for extra potency. Be careful though, it is also said pain is heightened during this time and we are more likely to bleed more, so do not opt for surgery or painful beauty treatments.

Waning Moon: Purifying and detoxing treatments are best during this phase. Whip out your bath salts, get in a sauna, do some hot yoga, and create your own facial steams right now. Dye your hair during this time too, as it should last longer. And since hair growth is slower, pluck your eyebrows and get any waxing treatments done now too. You are less likely to bleed as much.

Astrology signs play a role too! Water signs < Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer> help absorption; Fire signs < Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries > are better for purifying; Earth signs < Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn > nourish; and Air < Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius > are more stimulating. Keep these in mind!

I hope these little beauty tips help! Luna is always a great guide :)

Love and Blessings,
Marissa Moondaughter

Moon Days: Moon Partners

my lepidolite, labradorite, dark moonstones, smoky quartz, and black tourmaline <3

This cycle, I decided to do something different. My best friend and I decided to be Moon Partners. This New Moon, we told each other our intentions for this cycle and on the Full Moon we will celebrate and see how our intentions manifested, aka Goddess Party!

Do you have a moon partner? A close friend and loved one who can witness and keep you accountable? Try it for a cycle and see how it goes!

My intention for this cycle is to create space. This is manifesting in the Apothecary Circle by clearing space in my home, and considering a different space for my blog and offerings! We shall see... everything is still unfolding <3

Love and Blessings,
Marissa Moondaughter
