A symbol of the feminine An embodiment of the rhythm of time A metaphor for the cycles of womanhood And a beautiful force that can impact everything from the ocean waves to our emotions The beautiful white ball of light in the middle of our skies aka the Moon, gives us an opportunity to regularly check in with ourselves, validate our insights, set new intentions, and plan next steps with greater ease. Each phase of the moon helps us put things into perspective and action. Here are the phases of the Moon and what they each signify:
New Moon: The new moon phase is a more introspective time and represents new beginnings as we plant seeds for the future. It’s a good time to set clear intentions for the month ahead, clarify your goals, start new projects, and acknowledge your growth since the previous new moon. It’s also a good time to let go and release what no longer serves you so that you can welcome in the new.
Waxing Moon: The waxing moon is a good time to get motivated, commit to what you are building, and put your intentions into action.
Full Moon: This phase represents completion, fertility, abundance, and transformation, when the seeds from the new moon come into bloom. With this higher energy also come more outward connection and celebration.
Waning Moon: The waning moon is a time to renew, withdraw, and rest. This is a good phase to reflect and contemplate what is coming to a close so that you can prepare to plant new seeds or tend to those that need nurturing as the moon makes its way toward the new moon once again. The waning moon is also a time to declutter, decrease, cleanse, heal, end chapters, and allow the waters of your intuition to flow fully.
