Dark Moon Beauty Dos & Don’ts

Dark Moon Beauty Tips

The Dark Moon is a magical time of heightened intuition and regenerative insights. It also comes with its own beauty protocol.  Here are the Do’s and Don’ts. They are applicable to any Dark Moon but especially ones like this one, where Venus is near the Sun.

  • Don’t go nuts with a no holds barred in-depth examination of your face/figure flaws – it’s existential crisis-inducing at this time.
  • Related: Don’t go booking something that would be costly and hard to undo. This includes any form of filler, Botox, cosmetic tattoo (no matter what they call it), eyelash extensions, hair replacement shizz, laser blasting or…you get the idea.
  • Do the simple forms of beauty treatment – moisturizing, relaxing via yoga/baths/essential oils/more sleep and self-love. I am constantly reminding my subscriber-peeps of this in the Daily Mystic emails so apologies if you’ve heard it 1000 times but it’s true: the Dark Moon has cosmic, Earth Magic-fueled regenerative powers that is is wise to collaborate with.
  • Do take advantage of the Dark Moons heightened perceptions to assess your fashion/wardrobe policy more astutely. It’s not a good time to go shopping but planning? Genius.

you know something though. I think the film version of the Devil Wears Prada was where my ann hathaway aversion came from. nothing personal, shes a babe and whatever, but the book was millenial vitrol borne from “U R NOTHING” corporate fashland or something (in fact was she going through a major saturn transit? it sounded mega saturn come to think of it) and this film came out like ohh hearts and happiness. Anyway also meryl streep in a pinstripe blazer, what? i mean were they trying to work out how to portray Evil Boss without anyone making the mistake… Read more »

Ha might have been a good idea to read this before buying two trays of individual eyelash extension( short and medium lengths) glue and tweezers on amazon 😛 I haven’t worn or even thought about wearing fake lashes in a decade! something possessed me but I didn’t know what. This post makes it clear. Compared with my audiobook spend though, it was nothing. Maybe eight quid max. I am just so tired of coming home with mascara UNDER my eyes rather than where I applied it before going out. Panda eyes is so not sexy, unless you’re a panda I… Read more »

Btw, the eyelash extensions just arrived.
Thanks Amazon Prime.
I shouldn’t have 🙂
Maybe one day I’ll develop the patience to attach a few to the outer corners of each eye. Who knows?
Those youtube tutorials always make it look so easy.
Well I guess happy new moon everyone!

I went in a floatation tank for the first time last night. Perfect dark moon activity. Came out with my skin so soft from the magnesium and slept like a baby. Feeling totally rebooted!! Excellent dark Taurus moon activity. I would like to go once a month from now on… I woke up feeling so creative and grounded.

Remember there was a really dramatic comments section on a Mystic post on float tanks back in the day, LOL

Sounds heavenly! Glad you had such a wonderful experience!

Have been wanting to try it, but wonder if I would feel claustrophobic, as I tend to feel that way easily, even though the floatation sounds so good to me. Do you think there is any chance of someone feeling claustrophobic in the tank?

I think this could be possible but because the sensation is so literally supportive in the tank if you sit with it for just a bit it would likely pass… probably in the beginning it would be the scariest. I went to Reboot in the Marina and their float pods are bigger than most and they allow you to prop open the hatch if you feel claustrophobic at any time.

Also many things I read online said the humidity can be the most claustrophobic part but I didn’t feel that it was suffocating at all.

My second house Saturn in Leo and cap moon are very much looking forward to renewed income to that I can have beauty regime again. I prefer the term ‘benevolent dictatorship’. 9th house Pisces here with feral aspects but there are standards…

Sounds great! I love taking warm baths, doing some stretching, just mellow self-care.. New moon will happen in my 12th house….seems very inward… I need a whole new wardrobe and makeup supplies, and will assess. No chance of buying anything at the wrong time, though, because I can’t afford to. I’ve had very little money the past six years or so, so I’m very behind on updating my wardrobe. My clothes are pretty worn out, and tired of wearing same things over and over. Definitely need a change! On that note, too, I’m applying for a new job, and it’s… Read more »

had a proper nap yesterday evening for the first time in several weeks – after a bender of pretty much exclusively napping in the mornings/ early afternoons instead of doing anything else; all that time i had woken up at a decent hour but then decided that i needed to do nothing and instead dream more – and it was ultra refreshing. responsible naps, good stuff. (i had felt bad about the bender but also had deemed it necessary. has anyone else had that compulsion?)

I threaded the eyebows and waxed the bikini several days back. I slept 11 hours last night wearing Aquamarine, Rainbow Moonstone and Larimar rings. Rain has me sleeping like a baby and it is POURING here on the east coast.

I made the mistake of watching ‘Fish Bowl’ – a shirtless Fassbender makes this woman get famished beyond words. Bring on the amore, Universe!

I watched Shame the other day, also starring fassbender. The film is incredible as is he in his role. but as far as fassbender-lust goes, I am just not on that train. Definitely an attractive man, but his look isn’t my type afaict.

I like striking men with penetrating eyes and cheeky mouths. Fassbender, Downey Jr, Javier Bardem – all gorgeous. Rami from Mr Robot, Oscar from Ex-Machina – all yum to me. Ryan Gosling? Never. He looks like a dopey kid to me. His girlfriend Eva Mendes is fine as hell though, lol.

Attraction is all very personal. What is diamond for one is glass to another.

My grandmother said on raining days ‘bring out your Derwents’ to colour the day. So rainy days have always been Derwent Days.

Good to know now is not the time to get lost examining myself in the mirror. I’m prone to that and it’s always to my detriment! But when is this dark moon stuff over with? I need to dye my hair.

Get a mirror that flatters you (meaning the lighting of yourself when you look into the mirror)! It sounds so basic and inane but it is important for your self-esteem. You don’t want to be … examining your face under harsh lighting, as it will always be to your detriment. Diffuse the light, change the light bulbs or even the light fixture and shift the position of the mirror or light source if all else fails.

Am sooo about lighting MS.
Never overhead and i collect lamps and often put them behind something like a bamboo chair.
Colour globes with a water based paint mix so it’s apricot/peach hue for winter and a slight blue tint for summer (cooling).
Do marquillage in artificial light then check it in daylight.
Lighting is the ALL and less expensive than facelift 🙂

Agree on mirrors. I decided relatively recently that when faced with the feedback from the less flattering mirror vs the one where I generally look a bit nicer, I’d go with the nice mirror. I still look the same to whoever is looking at me but the internal “ugh DONT LOOK AT ME” is less… there. Or something.

Funny because my experience this Dark Moon has been wanting to add something new to my makeup wardrobe ( ugh ) even though I don’t wear makeup all the time (don’t have the time / occasion / it’s hot and I’d rather be clean). I mean, I pre-ordered the new Charlotte Tilbury mascara! It’s like reviving middle school obsessions with having the longest eyelashes possible for me right now. Other than that, nothing harsh, much less permanent. And I’ve been going to bed super early.

I went on a bath salt making binge the other day. Love relaxing in a new blend, or a tried and true one. I started using a new eyeliner this week – Scorpio rising with Venus in the 8th, and nearing my Venus return. Feeling like dressing like I’m visiting the depths in style.

I found mugwort and motherwort in the woods while walking my dog yesterday. Feels auspicious!!

And there can never be enough reminders of the dark moon. Seriously.

Absolutely sleep and hot drinks/soups time – work wonders on skin, baggy eyes and weekend recovery especially in a cold very rainy weekend. Right on MM!
