THE MOONS energy really does push and pull us forwards and backwards each month. Knowing when, and what is upcoming is a great assistance for using this wonderful energy to manifest what you want.
From the full to the new moon each month the energy begins to decrease as we let go of the past and allow ourselves to move forward. New moon to full things grow and increase in strength and power. These timing energies of the moon are called the MOONS PHASES.
NEW MOON is when this time actually begins with an increase and a time of new beginnings, new directions and a time to write down goals. THE NEW MOON PHASE cannot actually be seen because the illuminated side of the moon is pointed away from earth. This is the time of the moon growing larger and larger each day and can be seen from earth about 2 days after the new moon. THIS stage is called the waxing stage or growth stage.
New and crescent moon are time to get clear on goals, what do you want? THINK clearly before you act, but think before you act. The first quarter which is about 2 weeks after the new moon is the phase that urges you to act upon your new moon desires. This time actually pushes the universe as well, creating circumstances that assist you to reach your goals and this is the JUST GO AHEAD AND DO IT TIME:
Waxing time is the 2 days right before the full moon. There is attention directed to others at this time. Pay attention to those whom you meet during this time as they may be very important to you.
FULL MOON is the power day, as the moon is at its FULLEST and it is the STRONGEST time of the month for major realizations concerning your new moon goals. Use this day each month to meditate, make decisions as you have more energy today for major undertakings. From this day and time onwards the moon shrinks or begins a waning stage as it grows weaker.
4 or 5 days after the Full moon the moon reaches a disseminating time or time of harvest. Reaping what you have sown and a time when dreams really HAPPEN for many. Last quarter time is a time to begin to REALLY let go. Complete old projects, let go of strategies and situations that are not working. Termination and endings time is here.
The Balsamic phase of the Moon cycle is the three days before New Moon when the waning crescent can be seen an hour or so before Sunrise. The Balsamic Moon is called the Wishing Moon because this is a good time for putting wishes on the air. Balsamic Moon phase that problems are revealed but are not solved. Seeing the problem is easy at this time, solution comes later. A too quick fix will be superficial and can inhibit the flow of growing understanding. This is a good time though for bringing to awareness, highlighting, and releasing old patterns of belief and behavior that are holding us back from easily meeting the challenges of the time.
The Balsamic Moon is the perfect time to stir out uncertainty and confusion because it is the time for psychic clearing. Wishes are more readily fulfilled as the way is cleared to feeling core need.
48 hours before each new moon is the DARK OF THE MOON, I personally advise against surgery, signing contracts, or dental apts. Marriages and agreements made during this time are apt to have a very different outcome than what you planned. But meditation, prayer, ritual and purification of yourself, your home, your intents, and your life during this time is HIGHLY ADVISED.
