    • We can use these days to clean up and get rid of all that we do not need.

    • It is the best time to peacefully end a relationship or break a business.

    • It is the optimal stage to close pending cycles.

    • In contrast, are not appropriate to start new projects or do anything new at this stage because the energy is low and the projects can not materialize correctly .

    • On an emotional level, we are able to release ourselves from negative past experiences. It is also interesting to internalize what we learned in the previous phase and dedicate ourselves on activities that help us in our spiritual evolution, such as meditation.
