The Moon represents powerful feminine energy. It signifies wisdom, intuition and a spiritual connection. If you've ever wondered what Moon phases are all about and why we should be paying heed to them, then this is the post for you.

Here's a simple explanation of moon phases, what do they mean energetically.

Let's go back to the basics; the Moon orbits the Earth once every 29 days. The Earth orbits the Sun once every 365 days. The Moon's phases and appearance in the sky depends on its position to the Sun. The part of the Moon that's lit by the Sun is what we see illuminated in the sky.

Day 1 – New Moon (Intention Setting)

The Earth, Moon and Sun are in a line, with the Moon closest to the Sun and its bright side facing away from us. This is why the New Moon is a dark one. A new moon symbolizes new beginnings. It's a great time to start new projects and set intentions and goals. Setting intentions is the act of affirming what you intend to accomplish through your actions. It's a commitment to what you want the journey to be about as you move on or move up on your spiritual scale.

Day 2-14 – Waxing Moon

Moon moves further away from the shadow of the Sun, progressing toward complete fullness. Spiritually, it's time you ask yourself what you're doing to complete your goals. Are you taking the necessary steps? Whatever your commitments and plans for the month, the waxing Moon inspires you to see them through.

Day 15 – Full Moon (Reflection and Evaluation)

The Moon is completely illuminated by the Sun, showing up as a perfect circle in the sky.  It represents fulfilment, the completion of your desires and the peak of clarity. It is a time to celebrate your growth, evaluate your progress, and reflect on how far you have come. Releasing anything that is not serving us is an excellent spiritual practice in this phase.

Day 16-29 – Waning Moon (Reset)

As the Moon retreats towards its "new" phase again, it starts to shrink and get slimmer. Just as the waxing Moon encourages you to be more open and outward-looking in your actions, the waning Moon should turn your mind toward taking stock and introspection. Evaluating old ways of being, acknowledging what habits and patterns have run their course and starting to explore new intentions for the new Moon is a good practice in this phase.

To sum it up -

  • The New Moon signifies the seeds of intention setting. Once planted, they are tended to for the next 14 days.
  • The waxing Moon represents taking stock of your journey and course correction along the way.
  • The Full Moon is the part of the cycle where you see the fruits of your labour. You celebrate your achievements and let go of what you don't need.
  • The waning Moon calls us to start looking inwards and prepare for the new beginnings that are to come.

There is a beauty in connecting to a force that is vaster than us. As B.K.S. Iyengar says, "There is a universal reality in ourselves that aligns us with a universal reality that is everywhere."

Tapping into the Moon's energy cycles means connecting to the energy of openness, healing, renewal, intuition and wisdom. Connecting with the phases of the Moon can bring awareness to rhythms and patterns within our your body, mind, heart, and spirit.

Natal Moon Phase may be the distance the Soul has traveled around the 12 Houses, showing social evolvement through thousands of years
until Dark of the Moon after which a new wider circle is begun in New Moon again when Moon and Sun are same degree. The most spiritual
Souls are born at Dark of the Moon, but it depends on the rest of the chart.if actions are positive or negative.

For the first time in my 83+ years, gazing at the half-moon thru the window, I thought….since the sun is so critical to this earth, what role does the moon play…thinking that it might have none. But, that is not true. And in your piece I had additional inspiration on using the moon cycles to guide my life more. I like having it the moon and not my intuition, guilt, anxiety, or brain related. “Nature knows best,”
