Black moon Lilith rituals, waxing or waning?

I’m wanting to give blood to Lilith during the new moon, however, officially the new moon doesn’t start until around 12PM where I live. The ritual I’m doing needs to be done at night, so I guess my question is, would it be better to do the ritual tonight either around midnight or 3 in the morning when the moon is waning towards the new black moon or would it be better to do it tomorrow night around the same time after the black moon has technically passed but is waxing?
Anyone have any experience with this type of lunar magick? If so which would be recommended?
I’m thinking it would be better to do it tomorrow but I’m not 100% sure.

Bit confused, what is the purpose of the ritual? Gratitude to Lilith? The purpose will be the decider on when you should do it


Gratitude, I’m offering her dried dates, wine, blood, 5 black candles and sandlewood incense. I understand this may bring upon her darker aspect but that’s fine since I’m used to working with her in this form. I don’t plan on asking for anything, except for maybe gnosis.

I’ll suggest when it’s waxing. I’ve only very recently learned of the moon and it’s phase meanings, but waxing is considered more positive and about growth from what I know. So I think it’d make sense to do a ritual of gratitude when it’s waxing. But I think either way, she’ll appreciate it no matter when you do it.

Thanks. :slight_smile: I really want to do the ritual tonight but I think you’re right. Not to mention, it will give me more time to prepare since I want it to be perfect.

I think on the eve on the newmoon aswell, but in general around that period.
its like the old symbol of the goddess, the waning,new and waxing moon I think

) O (

though that can also be seen as waxing,full and waning…hmm
In old text it was around the time of the newmoon that her spirit roamed around

And she roams in the world, and finds children liable to punishment, and caresses them, and kills them. And all this is because of the diminishing of the moon which reduced its light…

This is the man who becomes blemished on every New Moon, for she never gives him up. For month after month, when the moon becomes renewed in the world
Lilith comes forth and visits all those whom she brings up, and makes sport with them, and therefore that person is blemished at that time.

That depends on what you need from Lilith. For example, if you need protection, the ritual will work best when the moon is waning.

The night after it is also powerful. The second night of course less but still decent powerful magic to use
