Crone of the New Moon
The Crone of the Full Moon and the New Moon, holds the whole cycle of the moon in her being. She can help you to reconnect to these cycles in the deepest part of your soul. An ancient story tells of a time when this Moon Crone was lost to humanity for a time. She walks among us, shining her brilliant, soft and bluish light, guiding travelers and wanders on dark nights. At night also, the shadow beings come out and they do not like the light that she sends out. One night, they grab her and throw her into a hole under the ground. They cover her with leaves and then place a huge rock on top of her, so that no matter how hard she tries, she is unable to come out.
Until one day, a wanderer, lost and fearful of the shadow beings comes across the Moon Crone in her pit. He is able to see her by the very edges of the light that shine weakly from around the edges of the rock covering her body. As he walks close to this faint light that he sees, he hears her voice, asking him to help her come out. He knows he is not strong enough to shift the rock on his own, so he seeks other wanderers to come help him and together, they are able to move the stone and free the Moon Crone.
She is very grateful to the wanderer and his companions but forever after this experience, she chooses never to walk on the earth again. Instead, she makes her way up into the sky, shining her beams down onto the earth. And to honor her time underground, she removes herself from the sky every month for three days, making the nights dark as pitch for the length of that time. But she always returns, slowly growing in the sky from a sliver into her full moon self.
The Crone of the Full and New Moon carries a bag over her shoulder, so that she can carry tiny moon-like disks with which she can repair tears in the night sky. She invites you to help her in this endeavor. You may fill her pouch with moon-colored stones to be used for this purpose or for meditation.
Note: there are two views of her-one with hands, one without. She has hands for when she walks the earth and doesn't need hands for when she is in the sky!
