As I have previously posted, it is part of my spirituality that I follow the phases of the moon; the dark moon, the new moon and the full moon.
Everything being connected, I ask that you respect my beliefs and not contact me in any way during the dark moon; on some calendars the “new moon.” This is actually the dark moon – when there is no moon in the sky to be seen, it is the dark moon. Then 1 to 3 days later the new moon begins to appear as a sliver of itself and we move toward the full moon.
Not all sects of Wicca recognize the dark moon. I do, with all of my instinct and intuition.
Generally, being this intimate and personal publicly is not something I would do; however, on this occasion I feel it a necessity. I have grown fond of, have made friends and have began working with quite a few of you who follow me here, on twitter, youtube or pinterest. So as not to offend anyone in any way, I ask that you respect and/or tolerate the one day of the month that I go dark. That is, I unplug. I unplug from technology and all its distractions.
During this period, to the best of my ability, I do as much as I can to connect with nature and the cosmos. I practice pyromancy the night of. I reach deep into the dark places, the deep places. I visit the ancient ones, consult with Inanna and Persephone. Coming out the other side when the new moon shows itself, I am often my most inspired and creative self. My time “away” can only serve to benefit me… and you.
