This is a time for organizing, consolidating, conserving…. and yes, completion. It is during the Waning Moon that I focus on decluttering. This is always good for the soul and for clearing hoocha, stagnant energy (hoocha is Quechuan for “heavy energy” and part of Andean shamanism), from one’s space and person.
But how do you know when you’re done?
In many ways this quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry describes it best, talking about perfection:
“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”
I guess I’ll keep at it… There is still plenty to take away!
