That’s right! Whether you feel it or not, the moon and where it is in it’s cycle does effect our daily lives. And it even makes geographic and scientific sense when you think about what you learnt in school about the gravitational pull of the sun and moon on the mass of water on the earth surface. During full moon and new moon there are extra high and low tides called the spring tide.
Our body is 70 – 80% water, just like the plants in our garden, which means we are directly effected by the same gravitational pull of the moons position in the sky.
Stellaseaspirits interpretation of the moon phases
New Moon is an ideal energy for initiating anything new such as new venture, beginnings, moving home, moving in with someone, getting married, job hunting and applying for promotion. Send forth your prayers, wishes and desires.
The Waxing Moon phase which occurs between New Moon and Full Moon is a time for growth. It is a time for setting intentions for manifestation. This makes it a creative time because energy is heightened, clarity of vision transpires and there is a magnetism that draws opportunities and possibilities toward you. Use this energy for constructing goals.
Full Moon occurs when the sun and moon are on opposite sides of the Earth, creates an arc of energy between them over our planet. This arc creates a sensation of inner fullness, manifestations ripen or come to fruition and perception is sharper.
The intense energy amplifies the qualities of the sign the moon is in when it takes place. It also affects individuals who have the same sun sign more deeply. It is an excellent time for expressing appreciation and counting your blessings in order to receive and invite further manifestation.
The Waning Moon phase is conducive to introspection, reflection and release. Reap what was sown during the waxing phase. Banish obstacles to your goals, de-construct circumstances you wish to remove from your life and release any concepts, patterns or habits that no longer serve you. This is also a favourable time for easing addiction, separation, divorce, bringing justice to bear, breaking bad habits, finding lost or stolen items and neutralising situations.
Dark Moon is a quiet time for soul-searching, stillness and rest. Practise visualisation for the month to come or to reflect on the past month.
Focus on personal issues in solitude for a while. Listen to your body, integrate your experiences this past cycle and focus on activities that bring you back into harmony with your core self and Spirit. All rejuvenation is amplified tenfold. Just as you let your garden rest, allow your body, mind and heart to rest during this time.
Certain signs yield better results. I do not mean to say that you can only do these things on these days, they will simply flow better.
