How To Align With The Moon’s Phases To Optimize Your Life
The Moon is powerful. It moves the tides, influences women’s cycles, and leaves an energetic impression on us every day. Most of us notice when the Moon is full because the moonlight is incredibly potent – but did you know the moon is always going through different phases?
The more you pay attention to the lunar cycles, the more you will realize the energetic impact they have. You can even use the lunar cycles as a guide to help you optimize your life. It all starts with learning about what each phase represents, and how to align with their energies.
Let’s Dive Into Four Key Phases Of The Moon
1. The New Moon
Ever heard the saying, “New Moon, new me?” Well, that’s because the New Moon represents the beginning of a cycle. It occurs when the Moon is not even visible in the sky! During a New Moon, it’s the ideal time to embrace a fresh start and set your intentions. It’s time to plant seeds that you want to see grow throughout the month.
The Waxing Moon follows the New Moon. Now we are seeing a tiny sliver of light emerge in the sky and continually expand. As the light begins to grow, so do the intentions we planted during the New Moon. The seeds are sprouting. There is forward movement around what is growing, and each day the momentum increases!
3. The Full Moon
When the moon is shining in its fullest glory, we have a Full Moon. A Full Moon is one of the strongest phases of the lunar cycle. It is the culmination of everything we have been working towards. We can experience increased spiritual energy, powerful revelations, and psychic insights. It also heightens our emotional sensitivity, so be mindful of your energy. What are you harvesting now? And what are you ready to release and let go of?
4. The Waning Moon
After a climax of energy, the moon begins to decrease once again. Each night it becomes thinner until it disappears and the cycle begins again. This phase is called the Waning Moon. We are letting go and cleansing ourselves from the past, shedding the old layers of skin. This phase represents the death of the old. Let it liberate you as it and know that the rebirth of a new cycle approaches.
If you use the lunar cycles as a navigation tool in your life, you’ll be amazed at how much they can improve your life. There are optimal times for creating and resting – let the moon guide you on this journey.
After all, you are a cosmic being…
