Waning Moon

Waning Crescent Moon

The Waning Moon is the transition between a Full Moon to a New Moon (no moon). This process takes 14 days and the further the moon travels toward the New Moon, the less light we see.
Today the Waning Moon lies in its 4th quarter, also known as the Waning Crescent Moon

Activities for the Waning Moon

The Waning Moon is the best time to work hard, lose weight, and get all those plans done that you made at the last New Moon. The 4th Quarter (Waning Crescent Moon) is a particularly useful time for detoxing,  heavy cleaning and washing, and all kinds of beauty regimes that cleanse the skin. In the garden, it is a good time to turn the earth, prune trees, start a compost heap, and do some weeding.
