Ready for a howling Full Moon with @PorcelainVamp ?

New Moon

At this stage, the moon is between the earth and the sun and is not visible to us. The darkness is said to signify new beginnings. At this point, the pull is growing in strength and intensity making it the perfect time to set new goals and let the world know your desires. Many like to do personal meditation and in ancient times it is documented that people planted crops and prayed to the moon during this phase.

Waxing Crescent

When the new moon passes, a waxing crescent appears. A portion of the moon is now illuminated but still less than half of its full size. As the moon is in a period growth, it’s a great time to stay motivated and remind yourself of your desires and tailor your plans as you go as your dreams slowly begin to become your reality. Your commitment during this time is a sign of your personal growth, just like that of the moon. It’s a time for positive energy so don’t be afraid to try new things and open yourself to meeting people.

First Quarter

Now around half the moon should be visible and still growing. Much like planted seeds, the roots are now taking hold. This time symbolizes strength, determination, focus and adjustment. Much like the new plant structure, you must nurture yourself and your desires, do not be deterred by any setbacks and try not to succumb to low mood.
It takes time to grow and even when it seems like you’re not making progress, that itself is nourishment that is helping you grow stronger. Use your emotions and channel them into something positive, this untapped energy could be exactly what you need.

Waxing Gibbous

At the end of the first quarter, the moon enters waxing gibbous edging closer to its full intensity. The buds are getting ready to bloom and much like them it’s an opportune moment for you to turn your attentions to what you wish to attain, gain and cultivate in your own life. Many see this as the time to learn new skills, accumulate or resolve financial matters and spend more time with their loved ones. Myths state many would try to conceive children during this phase.

Full Moon

The moon, earth, and the sun have reached the point of alignment again, the moon has transitioned to the other side of the earth, directly facing the sun. The full moon is illuminated in all it’s splendor and is clearly visible from the earth. Plants blossom, harvests are ready to be picked and eaten. It’s a time of completion, transformation and abundance.

Waning Gibbous

As the full moon ends, the energy and light of the moon begin to wane. Now is the time to release any negativity and stress. Be it unfulfilling relationships, your career or thoughts, and feelings. Try to get some moonlight by being outdoors to recharge your energy; exposing your jewelry to the moonlight will help you feel cleansed and uplifted if it contains crystals or gems such as Tiger’s eye, Unakite, Quartz, Rose Quarts, and Jade.
