The Moon represents powerful feminine energy. It signifies wisdom, intuition, birth, death, reincarnation, and a spiritual connection. The cycle of the Moon is similar to the cycle of a seed: the seed grows into a flower, then blooms, and then dies. Once we are attuned to the Moon, we can activate her innate powers.
Each phase of the Moon’s cycle has a unique visual characteristic and spiritual meaning. Her cyclical course also signifies the rhythm of life within us.
New Moon: The Moon is positioned between the Earth and Sun so it cannot be seen from Earth. This phase signifies new beginnings.
Waxing Crescent: ‘Waxing’ means the Moon’s illumination is growing and ‘Crescent’ means less than half of the Moon is illuminated. This phase signifies intention.
First Quarter Moon: Exactly half of the Moon is illuminated and the other half is shadowed. This phase signifies decision making.
Waxing Gibbous: ‘Waxing’ means the Moon’s illumination is growing and ‘Gibbous’ means more than half of the Moon is illuminated. This phase signifies refinement.
Full Moon: The Sun illuminates the entire moon. This phase signifies release and sealing of intentions.
Waning Gibbous: ‘Waning’ refers to the decreasing of the Moon’s illumination and ‘Gibbous’ means more than half of Moon illuminated. This phase signifies gratitude.
Third Quarter: Exactly half of the Moon is illuminated and the other half is shadowed. We will see the opposite side than the First Quarter Moon. This phase signifies forgiveness.
Waning Crescent: ‘Waning’ refers to the shrinking of the Moon’s illumination and ‘Crescent’ means less than half of the Moon is illuminated. This phase signifies surrender.
New Moon: This phase signifies new beginnings, and the cycle begins again.
As the closest astronomical body to us, the Moon has a powerful influence on us as spiritual bodies. The Full Moon offers the most profound energies that we can absorb, while the New Moon is the next most powerful energy.
One way to connect to this energy and influence is to use the Moon’s energy to help set our intentions and clear negativity.
The Moon’s cycle is 29.5 days and it represents a full life-cycle. Each phase of the Moon has a different meaning and rhythm to the body.
Moon phases show us how the Moon affects the ebb and flow of our entire existence. Once we are attuned to the Moon, we can activate her innate powers.
