Dark Moon / Dark of the moon / New moon

My friend, who comes from a rather Wiccan sort of a background, introduced me to one version of the Charge of the Dark Goddess, but it didn’t really resonate with me so I came up with my own ‘invocation’ type thing (I guess you’d call it) and thought I’d share it here:-

“At this time of the Dark Moon
I ask that my worries, fears and anxieties
be leached away, to evaporate in the deep darkness.
 
I strive to purge my soul of these negative influences, these energy drains.
 
At this time of the Dark Moon
I ask that I be granted daily peace, calm and serenity
and grant me also restful sleep each night.
 
I seek to instill a well of healing within myself, for fortitude in the face of future challenges.
 
At this time of the New Moon
I ask that I be granted the inspiration
to explore that side of myself which has resided in shadows.
 
I strive for spiritual development.
 
At this time of the New Moon I give my thanks to the universe,
for all that I have and for all that I hope to gain.”
