WAXING CRESCENT MOON

Magical Thinking: Living Your Life By The Moon By Gala Darling

I believe that one of the major reasons people feel lost, sad and disconnected from reality is because we’ve replaced nature (getting outside, walking on the grass, enjoying a cool breeze or splashing in the ocean) with technology (sitting inside, in the air conditioning, staring at a screen for hours on end). In a lot of ways, I think we’re detached from the seasons, and I believe it has a much greater negative effect on us than we realise.

It’s not difficult to get back in touch with the elements, though: all it takes is a decision and then a little bit of effort. For example, using the Moon to guide you is simple. You do see it in the sky most nights, after all!

Below, I’ve gone through each phase of the Moon, in addition to explaining what to do at each time. You might want to print it out and put it on your wall for easy reference.

By the way, for thoroughly modern magic, you can add the phases of the Moon to Google Calendar! It’s really easy to do. Open Google Calendar in your browser, and on the left hand side, you’ll see a month view, a heading which says My Calendars and a heading which says Other Calendars. Click on Other Calendars, and select Browse Interesting Calendars from the menu. Under More is the Phases of the Moon calendar. Click Subscribe and your calendar will show the phases! Brilliant!

doki-doki! The New Moon

As the Moon phases move from new to full, the Moon appears to get bigger and brighter. This period is called “waxing”, and is the most fertile time in the Moon’s cycle. It’s a great time to try and get pregnant, but if babies aren’t on your list, it’s also a fantastic time to create and conceive of new projects.

In Kundalini yoga, they say that the New Moon is the time when we have the lowest

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Today the Moon will be in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.
