They say that if you keep tabs on your life and record significant things in your Book of Shadows, it will begin to show you patterns in your life.

For the longest time, I kept getting really agitated during waxing cycles and was unfit to do a ritual by the time the Full Moon came.

A few full moons came and went, and I was fine for it.

But then this past waxing cycle I was smart enough to note the events on both the New Moon and the Full Moon.

What I found was that on the New Moon, I had a significant emotional breakdown and that as the moon waxed, things didn’t get much better.

The waxing cycle is for growing what you’ve started.  If you start with something bad, that’s what you get.  Garbage in, garbage out.

The waning cycle is already seeing a lot of the bad things that happened in the last waxing cycle ebb away.  The New Moon should see me in Albuquerque, NM on my way to a new life in Oregon.

The opportunity is there to make the most of it.  I hope I can clear out the last of these negative vibes as the day draws near.
