Waning Moon

Definition of Waning Moon

This is a term used to describe the moon when it is transitioning from full moon to new moon. It makes up the last half of the lunar calendar and lasts for about 14 days. During this time, the moon will pass through about six of the astrological signs. There is much folklore about what activities to do and not to do during a waning moon.

Ephemeris

An ephemeris is a map of the planets. Because the planets are in constant motion, that map is going to change constantly. Ephemerides come in either midnight or noon versions, and show you where the planets are (or were for a date in the past or will be for a date in the future) at either midnight or noon GMT.
