The Waning Moon
Directly after the light of the full moon has passed that the light begins to grow less visible each night, is a Waning Moon. The energy of the Waning Moon can be used to remove those energies and issues that no longer serve you such as letting go of a relationship that may be toxic. It is also leading up to the new moon which can be a time of rest and energy restoration.
It is a beautiful reminder to rest, recoup, recharge. Stones that carry an energy of unconditional love are perfect during this time as they are a reminder that taking care of the self is as important as anything else that you do. For if the self is not healthy and whole, you truly cannot be of complete service to others. Stones such as Rhodochrosite, Rose Quartz, Rhodonite, Ruby in Fuchsite, Pink Kunzite and/or Danburite work well with the Waning Moon.
