Moon Phases in Astrology
The Moon sets the major energy at any current time. In astrology, one’s natal moon sign reveals the particular way that they deal with their psychological baggage and inner emotional world.
Keeping your natal moon sign and what phase it was in when you were born in mind while looking to the sky can give great insight into yourself and what to do. The Moon is known to pass through eight different phases during a single cycle in a month.
New Moon, Crescent, First Quarter, Gibbous
At first, we have the New Moon. This beginning of the cycle is great for setting manifestations. Just like beginnings, people born in this phase are known to be spontaneous and project their reality into the world with just their intentions. Then, comes the Crescent phase which is great for breaking through past energies to work towards your manifestations.
Individuals born in this phase will have to focus on leading behind old habitual identities to initiate beginnings without being tied too emotionally to the past. After this, the moon shifts to the First Quarter where one takes outward actions towards, their manifestations. This leads to the Gibbous phase, which is used for refining your manifestation and individuals born during this are perfectionists.
Full Moon, Disseminating, Last Quarter, Balmasic
Finally, then we have the Full Moon during which details related to our manifestation are fully visible and have to be experienced. People born under this phase are idealists. This earlier knowledge that then comes to light, is then utilised and distributed in the next phase of the Disseminating Moon. In this phase, people born are natural communicators.
Then the Last Quarter Moon is used to change one’s consciousness and bring the change internally to shift their beliefs. People born in this phase will learn to break their disillusionment to build new identities.
In the end, comes the Balsamic Moon to provide closure to the whole cycle before a new one starts. This phase is a reflection of the karmic cycles we have to work ourselves out and naturally, people born in this phase will have to be careful about the cycles they invest their energy.
