Waning Moon Invocation (Judith Laura)

In Jewish tradition, the waning moon is marked by an announcement of the new month called Birkat haChodeshóBlessing of the New Moon, a blessing that prays for life, renewal and regeneration in the coming month. This modern prayer contains similar themes, invoking the Divine feminine as the living presence within our universe and the source of change and rebirth.

On the wings of the waning moon,
we see the spiral arms of our galaxy,
and you, Goddess, are there.
On the wings of the waning moon,
we sense the spiral within us,
and you, Goddess, are there.
In the smallest of particles, you shine.
In waves of light, you flow.
In the dying of the darkest hole,
you bear the spark of new life.

Slowly fading crescent,
Honored Crone of change
Ancient One of transition,
open our minds to your wisdom
and our hearts to your love.
On the wings of the waning moon,
be with us here now.
