The Moon has eight phases that it goes through. Most people just focus on the two major phases, the new moon and full moon. But the six other phases are key in really working and understanding how the moon rules your life. Without them, you are simply only receiving 1/3 of the moons wisdom. Here are all of the moon phases with details on what energy they bring into your life.
- New Moon: This is a time of going inward and discovering where you are at in your life. It is perfect time for self reflection. During this time the sun and moon are in the same sign, which means that the stars are sending us a strong and clear message. Set intentions and be open to fresh opportunities.
- Waxing Moon: The moon begins to lighten and create the first crescent of the cycle. This is the perfect time to start new projects and ignite a new energy in your life. Set goals and come up with an action plan so that you can follow through with you new moon intentions!
- First Quarter Moon: In half light and dark this moon has strong lessons of balance for us. During this time you can expect many challenges and tests from the universe. You want to stay mindful of ever action and take blockages as an opportunity to reevaluate your course of action.
- Waxing Gibbous: This is when the moon is more than half of the way full! During this time you should be giving your desires your all! Putting you full energy into everything you do. A sense of productivity fuels your passions making this one of the highest and happiest times of the lunar cycle.

Many breakthroughs happen during this time, and depending on the energy that you have been putting out this can be a positive or negative time for you. None the less this is the best time to let go of all that no longer serves you.
