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

TODAY WE SEE A WANING MOON
The moon starts the journey from Full Moon to New Moon. This process takes 14 days and is called the Waning Moon. The further the moon travels towards the New Moon, the less light we see.
The Waning Moon is the best time to work hard, lose weight, and work hard on the goals you formulated at New Moon
If you need to shed some pounds, try to do this during these two weeks. We tend to be more active now and as a result may eat less, as we are too busy with other things.
The Waning Cycle can be subdivided into:
The Waning Gibbous Moon or the 3rd Quarter
The Waning Half Moon which marks the halfway point between the Full Moon and the New Moon
The Waning Crescent Moon or the 4th Quarter
LOOKING GOOD: the time for Body peeling and brushing routine, extra cleansing, and hair removal.
FEELING FANTASTIC: the time for therapies, meditation, and increase your exercise regime.
HAPPY HOUSE: the time a busy time in the garden, digging, weeding, pruning, pest control and composting.
FINANCE/VOCATION: this is the time to put your head down and get on with your work. All those ideas will just stay concepts if you don’t put them into action.
FEELING LOVE: in relationships with others there are times when we need to ‘straighten things out’. Now is a good time to tackle this, ideally not too close to Full Moon.
