Waning moon ritual for letting go – lunar winter magic

Waning moon rituals are those magical acts that moon witches perform in the second half of the lunar cycle, from 16th to 28th lunar days. This period captures two phases – the Waning Gibbous (lunar autumn) and the Waning Crescent (lunar winter), as well as the Third Quarter day. The waning moon energy contributes to the slowdown, decrease, disappearance. As the lunar disk gradually disappears from sight, all unnecessary things can leave our lives in a natural and easy way.

Waning moon ritual for letting go takes the mood of the moon as the basis and helps us get rid of bad habits, excess weight, body tumors, love dependencies, mental blocks and limiting beliefs.

See how sensible everything is in nature! Every month we have time to dream (waxing crescent); realize our dreams (waxing gibbous); celebrate and sum up (waning gibbous) and get rid of something unnecessary (waning crescent).

After all, everything flows and changes, and we need to be flexible in order to let go of things that no longer serve us. Let us use the powerful force of the Earth’s satellite in order to facilitate this process. Waning moon ritual for letting go will help us manifest willpower and soften emotional outbursts.

When to carry out the waning moon ritual for letting go

The lunar winter is best suited for the waning moon rituals – from 23d to 28th lunar days. Lunar autumn also helps to let go, but still, its energy is more like a harvest festival and is suitable for collecting the results of work, fun, and gratitude.

By collecting the results and analyzing them, we can understand what prevents us from success. Maybe, you already know what you want to get rid of, but the lunar cycle is organized in such a way for a reason. It specifically and in practice shows you the reasons for your successes and failures on the waning gibbous phase.

Therefore, do not ignore the prompts of higher powers. When you hear what they say to you, start preparing for the waning moon ritual for letting go. Of course, it’s best to spend it at night, when you can see the moon in the sky 😉

For the waning moon rituals, we need all the same items as for any magic ritual. It is necessary to equip a sacred place, choose magic assistants – representatives of four elements. Candles, crystals, herbs, essential oils, cards – each of them has its own magical properties.

For example, these can be purple or black candles; essential oils of eucalyptus, lavender, and lemon; sage and mint; selenite and rock crystal. You can also use the music of purification and harmonization of the chakras, or the mantra that removes obstacles.

The plan of the waning moon ritual for letting go

Once you equip your sacred place, you can begin to carry out the waning moon ritual for letting go. All lunar rituals follow the same pattern, but you can put your own pieces on this frame.

So, you can write on paper what you want to get rid of and burn it in the flame of a ritual candle. Or, you can create a symbol that depicts what you want to let go and scratch it right on the candle. A candle can be pre-dressed in essential oils and herbs. It should burn out completely.

You can also make an aroma lamp from cleansing essential oils and brew tea with appropriate herbs (or take a bath with them to cleanse the body and soul). Also, you can use various symbols of sacred geometry to arrange your crystals. Or try to pick a card from a tarot deck, Lenormand, or whatever you like.

Use your imagination, because magic is creativity 😉
