The Moon has an influence on your body
The night star is the main influence responsible for changes in sea-level all around the world. Since the human body is composed of 65% water, how can anyone deny that the Moon has an influence on us as well?
The gravitational force of the Moon is known to influence various earthly phenomena. Why, then, should human beings be immune to its effects?
The Moon has always been important in various cultures and religious traditions. Symbolically, it represents the female principle, the world of dreams and passivity.
How the Moon’s phases affect us
Depending on what phase it’s in, the Moon has a strong influence on your mind and body. You can learn to take advantage of the positive phases of the Moon to orient your life in the right direction:
- experience success
- attract luck, love, money and well-being…
The Moon can also elevate your mind to higher levels of consciousness.
The phases of the Moon, called ‘lunations,’ affect our behavior. Depending on the Moon’s phase, the same person can be:
- aggressive or passive
- dynamic or lazy
- happy or sad
- dependable or frivolous
- self-confident or indecisive…
Each lunar phase has its own energy
Starting now, keep tabs on the phases of the Moon, and take them into account when you act or make decisions. If you’re in synch with the Moon’s lunations, you’ll have a better chance of being effective. Then you can embark on the path to success in all areas of your life.
Below you’ll find a description of each of the Moon’s phases, and what you should and should not do during each period:
This is the time to move forward with your plans and projects. Just be careful not to get overly enthusiastic. When it comes to attaining your ambitions, be logical and not emotional.
Waxing Crescent: During this phase, don’t have any illusions about the people you meet, because the relationships you start probably won’t last. This phase is favorable for investments and the sale of goods. Things should go well in your job or career, but be wary of promises made during this period because they probably won’t be honored.
First Quarter: Encounters you make are marked by sincerity, and a real desire to live-up to promises and commitments. In terms of your love-life, the bonds you create should endure. The period also provides a lot of energy for advancing your professional plans and furthering your goals.
Waxing Gibbous: This phase favors a lot of self-confidence and creativity, which is why you should undertake things, or press forward with a project. This is also an ideal time to become emotionally involved with someone. The initiatives you take to earn money will be crowned with success.
Full Moon: This is the best phase for success in all areas of your life. The encounters you have with people should endure, and the bonds you create during this lunation should be stable and long-lasting. If you embark on any projects during this phase, they will have every chance of being successful.
Waning Gibbous: This isn’t a good time to meet people or take the initiative. If you become emotionally involved with someone during this phase, you may need to make a lot of compromises and concessions if the relationship is to last.
Last Quarter: This isn’t a good time to take the initiative.
You’ll hesitate a lot in all areas of your life, and the projects you embark on may become very complicated. You’ll need to be persevering if you want them to come to a positive conclusion.
Waning Crescent: This is a favorable period for resolving problems and conflicts in all areas.
As far as your love-life is concerned, the encounters you make could lead to lasting relationships. The practice of positive thinking is particularly beneficial during this phase.
A super full moon occurs when the moon’s closest approach to the Earth (lunar perigee) coincides with the phase of full moon. When this happens the moon may seem bigger and brighter. However, for the ordinary star-gazer there will be no significant difference.
How To Celebrate a Summer Full Moon - Group Ceremony
In addition to -- or instead of -- holding a monthly Esbat rite, some Wiccan and Pagan groups prefer to have a season-specific full moon ceremony. During the warmer months, the summer season begins with the Strong Sun Moon in June, and continues through July's Blessing Moonand ends with the Corn Moon of August. If you'd like to celebrate one or more of these moon phases with a ritual specific to the summer, it's not hard. This rite is written for a group of four people or more, but if you needed to, you could easily adapt it for a solitary practitioner or a family coven.
