When in the New Moon, the moon reflects no light from the sun. It doesn’t guide our way or give light to the night. She is void of color and appears to be dying. Women gathered during the New Moon because their cycles were synced with her cycles. Men shunned this time and feared what the women were doing all cloistered together. It became known as a witch’s moon because men feared the secrets of those three nights. As dark as it was, men forgot to look up into the heavens to see the glorious display that awaited them when the moon cast no light to spoil the view. For when the moon is dark, the stars shine their brightest. The heavens are awash with the brightness of the stars that can finally be seen and not overshadowed by the brilliance of the moon. So for these three nights, this yarn is available to remind you of the wonder that a dark night sky can bring. That is the secret that the men failed to see. Witches don’t need dark shadows to do their business.
