What are Moon Phases?
Grandmother Moon, a term often used in Indigenous cultures to represent the nurturing and wisdom aspects of the Moon, goes through a series of cyclical phases that embody the passing of time and the circle of life.
The Moon’s journey begins with the New 🌑 Moon, a time of introspection, renewal, and the setting of intentions. It then transitions into the Waxing Crescent 🌒 Moon phase, signifying growth and the building of energy, followed by the First Quarter 🌓 Moon, which represents determination and action. As the Moon continues to expand, it enters the Waxing Gibbous 🌔 Moon phase, embodying refinement and reflection on progress. The Full 🌕 Moon, a time of fruition and celebration, marks the apex of the lunar cycle, after which the Moon enters the Waning Gibbous / Disseminating 🌖 Moon phase, encouraging gratitude and the release of negativity. The Last Quarter 🌗 Moon follows, symbolizing forgiveness and letting go, and finally, the Waning Crescent / Balsamic 🌘 Moon phase emerges, representing the closing of the cycle, surrender, and the anticipation of a new beginning with the return of the New 🌑 Moon.

I strongly believe that each person has the ability to heal themselves and that my job is to bridge the gap between the client and the methods that best suit their process.
