The Lunar Cycle

Connecting with the Moon puts us in touch with her cycles and rhythms. The New Moon is the time to put your wishes and intentions out there to the Universe. The Full Moon is a time when we can become extra emotional, which makes sense, as the Moon is about emotions. Moon-watching started by our ancient ancestors, as long as 25,000 years, to work with the changes of the seasons, guiding the processes of agriculture where they learned to work with the planet.

Following Moon Cycles to do things like when is the best time to cut your hair, cut your nails, pull weeds or grow plants. While the Sun is what others see about you – acting like a spotlight, the Moon is what is unseen by others – our internal work, emotional needs. Your emotions, instincts, intuition, and most private passions are dominated by your Moon sign.

The Moon has the “power” to shift tides and if she can do that, she certainly has the power to shift you. We’d be silly to think otherwise, we are made of 60% water.

I challenge you to look at each of these phases each month and see how much you are affected.

NEW MOON IN SCORPIO 2020

JOURNAL PROMPTS

New Moon in Scorpio
November 14, 2020

Phase 1: New Moon ? 
Keywords: a clean slate, potential, dreams

This is the time of the month when the moon and the sun are on the same side of the Earth. To us on Earth it looks like the dark side of the moon is facing us. Historically during this time, women took time away from everyone during this time, as it represents the menstrual cycle, the menses. The new moon is about fresh starts. This is a time to retreat to regain strength to start again.

The themes during this time: new beginnings, fresh starts, clean slates.

This is your time to “reboot intensely”. Visualize filling yourself up to recharge under the energy of this new moon. Throw away all unwanted thoughts and excess “junk”. Give yourself as much alone time as possible. Embrace any feelings of wanting to be alone to introspect. As the Grandmother Moon shifts to her dark side to us, turn yourself inward, move away from the energy of others, take time for yourself. New Moon represents a fresh start. Gather all your intentions and release them into the universe. Set your focus and awareness on positive and loving intentions. Take care of yourself. Create what you have been dreaming about. 

Scorpio is a Water Moon. The element of water moons can feel really emotional. We can feel at a loss, not very motivated. This is where mindset blocks can be when we feel more inclined to focus on or those we thought were resolved, reappear.

Scorpio is represented by an animal that can sting you to death. This is your “shadow side” (the dark aspect of yourself), but also this energy also helps us understand life’s mysteries. This is a good time to face the things that we would otherwise shy away from (even if we don’t want to face them). Scorpio holds grudges that can last a lifetime. Scorpio is sexy.

Watch out for

  • emotions like crankiness, neediness, over or under nourishing ourselves, co-dependency, ignoring boundaries, jealousy, possessiveness, obsessiveness, isolation, being snappy, sarcasm, guilt-tripping, daydreaming and self-pity

Use this moon for

  • self-care and nourishing ourselves, meditation, journalling, vision, boarding, reading, mind-mapping, praying, using your intuition, therapy, baths, long walks, nurturing yourself and others, yoga, massage, eating, comforting meals, using essential oils, clearing space to create space

Waxing Crescent Moon in Capricorn
November 18, 2020

Phase 2 – Waxing Crescent Moon (Setting Intentions) ?
Keywords: courage, moving forward, faith

This is the time of the fastest increase in its visible size. Its energy is correspondingly active and dynamic. Ancient druids regarded it as the most auspicious time to work creative magic – to catch the rising tide. The potential of the new Moon is starting to manifest. Keep your intentions in mind and act.

This time marks the transition from the ordinary to the special world, the unknown. Here we are introduced to our quest, or our problem becomes painful enough that we are motivated to want to change. Fear sets in, we may not seek help. We want to stay in the “comfort” of what we know, no matter how unpleasant. This is the crossroads where we must choose. At this point, you will embark on the adventure (there is no turning back). We are leaving the illusion of security. Explore your dreams.

The sun starts to move closer to the new moon and begins to lighten up. A crescent appears until it grows into a first-quarter moon. This is the time for setting intentions, hopes and wishes. After recharging under the newness of Grandmother Moon, your desires are ready to be planted. This is the time for laying the mental groundwork on new projects, developing your intentions, writing cheques to the universe or burying your crystals.

The Waxing Crescent is a time to refine your vision. Gather strength and have confidence in your direction. You can achieve anything. You are powerful. You are a warrior. 

Capricorn is an element of earth moons are great for detail-oriented tasks, improving systems and functionality. These are great for mundane, tedious, and tasks that require a lot of focus.

Capricorn is a very intense energy but understands that ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’, and quality takes time. The energy during this time is disciplined and needs order, wants hard facts and figures. This is time for evaluating things in clear and precise ways. 

Watch out for

  • the energy on this moon moves slowly; be wary of emotions surrounding jealousy, bossiness, stubbornness, and indulging; we focus more on material things during this moon energy; be careful to not overspend and monitor the outcome you are looking for; anxiety, self-criticism, and judgment come up strong during this time

Use this moon for

  • creating tangible things; good time for bookkeeping, taxes, sending and signing contracts’; this is a great period to share details about things you want others to know

First Quarter in Pisces
November 21, 2020

Phase 3 – First Quarter Moon (Action) ?
Keywords: challenges, confidence, commitment

During this time, we are crossing the first threshold. In one sense this is the point of no return.  We can’t go back the way we came, we can’t forget our problem or go back to being unconscious, you may want to even forget they have a problem, but you can’t, they also know it must be solved.  This is a breakthrough point.

It’s time to commit

About a week after the new moon, we’ve reached the first quarter. We are now one-quarter of the way through Grandmother Moon’s cycle.
This is when obstacles appear and we begin to feel some resistance. The first hitch is experienced here if your intentions were set with the new moon.

The themes here are challenges, decisions, action.

The time for rest and setting your intentions are over and it’s time to work harder than ever. Things will now be thrown and you may need to make decisions on the spot. Stay calm and be flexible. Make decisions that will bring you closer to your desired outcome with the intentions that you set during the new moon. Keep focussed on your desires.

Write yourself a DAILY to-do list using paper and pen. Keep a journal to track everything you are doing to move through this resistance. As you complete the task, cross it off throughout the day, if you can.

Element of water moons can feel really emotional. We can feel at a loss, not very motivated. This is where mindset blocks can be when we feel more inclined to focus on or those we thought were resolved reappear.

Pisces Moon days feel dreamy and romantic. No one seems to be in a rush as the day melts into the night. This can be a great day for writing poetry. Meditations can be experienced at a much deeper level. The flip side to Pisces Moon days are self-pity, a sense of being lost, of being a martyr, and addictions. happen more readily on a Pisces Moon Day. It’s truly about balance. Pisces is symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions.

Watch out for

  • emotions like crankiness, neediness, over or under nourishing ourselves, co-dependency, ignoring boundaries, jealousy, possessiveness, obsessiveness, isolation, being snappy, sarcasm, guilt-tripping, daydreaming and self-pity

Use this moon for

  • self-care and nourishing ourselves, meditation, journalling, vision, boarding, reading, mind-mapping, praying, using your intuition, therapy, baths, long walks, nurturing yourself and others, yoga, massage, eating, comforting meals, using essential oils, clearing space to create space

Waxing Gibbous Moon in Aries
November 26, 2020

Phase 4 – Waxing Gibbous Moon (Refine) ?

Keywords: tweak, hone, adjust

Stay on course, you will show up more strongly here if you do not get lost in the obstacles that present themselves here. 

This is the point where you tend to encounter many obstacles, some of them are people, well-meaning people, but harmful nonetheless with their thinking, saying well-intentioned things. These people may talk you out of solving your problem or convince you that you can even solve it. You need to be able to identify these obstacles, people, internal noise in order to overcome it and keep moving forward. 

The waxing moon is one phase away from becoming a full moon. The largest part of the moon is lit up leaving it to be seen throughout the day.
The themes during this time are adjustment, refining, editing.

During this moon, we realize what we need to change directions on, reevaluate or give up. Things don’t always work out the way we planned and we need to readjust.

This is the time to course-correct or make sacrifices. Don’t resist the feelings of change during this phase.

The Waxing Gibbous is a time to trust that your intentions will bear the fruits of your labor. Align your hopes with the universe as you build up momentum. Continue to take action. 

Element of fire moons are very active. These are great times to get something started. Being physically active during this time is important. Tapping into ideas seems to come more naturally. Great time for generating excitement. 

Aries is ruled by the angry war planet Mars and it’s not unusual for emotions to run high during this Aries Moon. If you find yourself in the middle of an argument, take a few deep breaths, reminding yourself that this is not an excuse to “lose your shit”. Instead, use this Aries energy to GET THINGS DONE. Aries energy is quite impulsive energy. It’s easy to feel quite driven. Use this energy to create an enthusiastic flow of something constructive. Try not to take offense much today, it’s easy to do. Great day for meditation to bring a Zen energy, especially during these days when the Moon is in Aries.

Watch out for 

  • be cautious around impulsivity
  • be wary of the outcome – weigh pros and cons of a situation
  • Being direct may be a problem – ask yourself, is this useful or helpful info

Use this moon for

  • action taking
  • amplify your workouts
  • start a new physical activity
  • great time to re-organize, de-clutter, get things in order
  • direct communication

Full Moon in Gemini
November 30, 2020

Phase 5 – Full Moon (Harvest) ? 
Keywords: results, forgiveness, gratitude

It’s make-or-break time!

At this point, you are moving into your deepest fears. You have the most to lose at this point. You either need to move forward, possibly at great risk to yourself or give up altogether. Be sure on where your guidance is coming from and that they know and support you, as you are strong, you have what it takes to move through this, you break through old belief systems that are holding you back. You may feel like you can’t do it. You may even want to give up, in fact, you may give up. Things may look harder than you thought or not possible. Have hope. Call on your own internal power. This may be something that you don’t know you have to move through.

This is when the moon and sun are on opposite sides of the Earth. When the sun is directly across from the moon making the moon shine bright and fully appear to us on Earth.

During this time, not only are they across from each other but the sun and Grandmother moon are in different zodiac signs. We fight to balance between two extremes, which heightens tensions creating high emotions during this time. Do not get emotionally attached to anything during this time.

This is the time to reap the benefits of the seeds of intention that you sowed at the new moon.

During this time, you’ll see new opportunities appear or you may even see the previous week’s results from your hard work. Be open to receive these.

The Full Moon is in its most strong and powerful phase. Have gratitude for all that you have received and learned. Release all that no longer serves you. Open yourself up to harvest intentions and wishes from past moons. 

Element of air moons are perfect time for communication, brainstorming ideas, and networking. It’s more difficult to concentrate on deep emotional subjects.

The Moon is in the quicksilver sign of Gemini and can seem like it goes by quickly. If you have a lot on your plate, but can be confusing today. It might sound like the Aries Moon Day information, but it really is different: Aries Moon Days are about action, while the Gemini Moon is more about mental energy – talking to lots of people and nonstop moving about. Great day to give a presentation, hold a social gathering, as everyone is going to be extra chatty. It’s a great day to be inquisitive. You will be able to make sense of a lot of things during this Moon.

Watch out for 

  • do not commit to contracts during this time
  • things are still processing or forming during this time
  • do not schedule anything that requires alot of focus
  • this is a time that promotes gossip, so be wary of what you say
  • drama is easy to get roped into during this time
  • you may feel pulled in different directions and not feel like you are getting things done

Use this moon for

  • great time to talk and/or focus on you
  • you are more talkative during this time
  • you seem to be heard better during this time

Waning Gibbous (Disseminating) Moon in Cancer
December 4, 2020

Phase 6 – Waning Gibbous or Disseminating Moon (Grateful) ?
Keywords: cycle, relax, accept, regroup

B-R-E-A-T-H-E

You made it through that struggle, your internal challenge, and solved your problem. The biggest reward here is how you feel about yourself. You don’t always make it through this cycle. Sometimes you have to go back and start again. But you are not starting from the beginning, but moving forward where you left off. 

Grandmother Moon becomes less illuminated as she moves towards the last quarter moon into another new moon.

The themes during this time are gratitude, sharing, enthusiasm.

Now you should feel the benefits of your hard work from the last two weeks. You should be seeing an abundance of the “crops”, even if it’s small outcomes to the goals or intentions that you set during the last new moon. This is a good time to give to those around you – feel the love.

The Waning Gibbous is a time for reflection. Meditate on your intentions and give gratitude to the universe for all you have harvested. Share your wisdom, and celebrate the abundance. 

Element of water moons can feel really emotional. We can feel at a loss, not very motivated. This is where mindset blocks can be when we feel more inclined to focus on or those we thought were resolved, reappear.

This day is meant to retreat to your nest, spend time with family and friends, sort out your home, enjoy a meal, or do the cleaning. This is the home-loving domesticated Cancer Moon. This is a good time to work on insecurity, doubts, fears, and worries head-on.

Watch out for 

  • emotions like crankiness, neediness, over or under nourishing ourselves, co-dependency, ignoring boundaries, jealousy, possessiveness, obsessiveness, isolation, being snappy, sarcasm, guilt-tripping, daydreaming and self-pity

Use this moon for

  • self-care and nourishing ourselves, meditation, journalling, vision, boarding, reading, mind-mapping, praying, using your intuition, therapy, baths, long walks, nurturing yourself and others, yoga, massage, eating, comforting meals, using essential oils, clearing space to create space

Last Quarter Moon in Virgo
December 7, 2020

Phase 7: Last Quarter Moon (Release) ?
Keywords: re-evaluate, balance, trust

The adventure isn’t over yet. You must return and share what you’ve learned and deal with any issues that came up from the problem or challenge. You are doing more deeper work here. 

What do you know?

Grandmother Moon continues to become less illuminated as she moves towards the last quarter moon into another new moon.

The themes during this time are still gratitude, sharing, enthusiasm.

You will continue to feel the benefits of your hard work from the last two weeks. You should be seeing abundance of the “crops”, even if it’s small outcomes to the goals or intentions that you set during the last new moon. This is a good time to give to those around you – feel the love.

This is the time to start releasing the things you’ve been hanging on to that may be preventing you from fully receiving what you desire. Release those blocks and anything that no longer serves you.

The Last Quarter Moon is a time for letting go. Release the negative energy and bad habits that bind you, and cause you harm. Give back to the universe from a place of abundance.

Element of earth moons are great for detail-oriented tasks, improving systems and functionality. These are great for mundane, tedious and tasks that require a lot of focus.

The Virgo Moon is a good time to take stock, make sure everything is accurate, crunch numbers, have a plan and start the plan. This is a good time to start a diet or think about your general health regimes. 

Watch out for

  • the energy on this moon moves slowly
  • be wary of emotions surrounding jealousy, bossiness, stubbornness and indulging
  • we focus more on material things during this moon energy
  • be careful to not overspend and monitor the outcome you are looking for

Waning Crescent (Balsamic) Moon in Scorpio
December 11, 2020

Phase 8 – Waning Crescent or Balsamic Moon (Surrender) ? 

Keywords: healing, soothing, surrender

And release …

The final test – did you solve their problems, did you overcome the issues, this is the final test. This is the stage of mastery, your reality is different, what you’ve experienced and learned will be integrated into your new reality. 

Now there is just a sliver of Grandmother Moon being lit up and decreasing as it moves towards the new moon.
This is the time to surrender, rest and recuperate. You’ve now gone through an entire cycle – things have come and gone – willingly or not.
The theme during this time is emptiness.
You will be preparing to set new intentions with the new cycle, but not during this moon. Just relax and surrender to the universe.

The Waning Crescent is a time for rest. Take a few moments to restore positive energy. Nurture yourself. Your work is now done and you can move into the New Moon with an open heart. 

Element of water moons can feel really emotional. We can feel at a loss, not very motivated. This is where mindset blocks can be when we feel more inclined to focus on or those we thought were resolved to reappear.

Scorpio is represented by an animal that can sting you to death. This is your “shadow side” (the dark aspect of yourself), but also this energy also helps us understand life’s mysteries.
