Simple hacks to harness the energy of the moon cycle

Mother moon.

What can I say about her. Her power is evident. She holds intense energy and wisdom and comes to us every night, with her consistent evolution. With most 'woo' or spiritual practices I was a skeptic. 

I wondered why people made such big deals about the full moon, and the new moon, and when the moon was in certain star signs. It was not until I started keeping track of my life and the events that occurred that I noticed a concrete cycle in the phases of the moons and big life events and/or changes. I became so intrigued with this revelation! I wanted to know all the things. 

When is the best time to start a new venture?

Buy a house? Make an investment?

How does the mood effect my monthly cycle?

Here is a list of the different moon cycles and what each moon represents in their spiritual understanding.

New Moon

When you think of the new moon - think exactly that; NEW. In this phase, the moon is between the earth and sun and is not visible here on earth. Like a seed planted in the ground, we can't see it germinating and taking form - but never the less it is planted. The darkness of this phase denotes the very beginning. The energy coming from this phase of the moon builds in strength and intensity. It is the perfect time to set clear intentions and goals.

WHAT TO DO IN THIS PHASE: Start a new business, a new relationship, a new opportunity. Set clear intentions for the coming month by writing them down and putting them in a special place.

Waxing Crescent

After the darkness of the new moon, the size of the illuminated portion of the moon slowly increases. It builds in strength and intensity. This moon energy is perfect for bringing an idea into fruition. It is time to take action, stay motivated, and take aligned action toward your goal. It is a time for movement and evolution.

WHAT TO DO IN THIS PHASE: Make a plan of action for any goals or dreams you have. Meet new people, stay moving and consistent. 

First Quarter

The popular term for this phase of the moon is the "half moon" since when you are looking at it - you are able to see one half of the moon illuminated. The seed is now taking roots and coming into it's structure as a plant! This phase of the moon symbolizes, strength, commitment, and at times re-evaluation and focus. This is is a good time to take a step back and become aware of the world around you. What needs more of your energy? What needs to stay the same? What needs some TLC? 

WHAT TO DO IN THIS PHASE: Evaluate, take time to become aware of your reality. Stay positive and focused. Utilize your energy for creative passion. Visit an art exhibit, take a dance class, express your emotions through a creative outlet. 

Waxing Gibbous

As the moon progresses the different stages, so does the energy. This is a time for increased growth and movement. It is a time of acknowledgement and growth. Although not at full completion, this phase of the cycle is about cultivating and development. What is your next step? How can you bring more growth into your life? Your business? Your relationships?

WHAT TO DO IN THIS PHASE: Ask and answer questions, meditate, journal, cultivate new relationships, if your in business -- be a guest on a podcast, collaborate with fellow entrepreneurs.

Full Moon

At this phase, the moon, earth and sun are aligned like the new moon, but the moon is on the other side of the earth directly opposite of father sun. The seed that was planted at the new moon is now in all its glory - it is in full bloom. This phase is the most powerful and the most potent. It is a time of abundance, harvest, transformation, fertility, and release.

Just like we take the trash out when it is full - it is to let go of anything that no longer serves you or supports your higher purpose. It is is the perfect time to release negative beliefs, thought patterns, and emotions. It is a time to step into the next level version of yourself. What are being called to release? What is holding you back?

WHAT TO DO IN THIS PHASE: The full moon is a perfect time to tap into lifes magic. It is a good time to tap into your intuition and absorb the spiritual wisdom that resides within you. Make moon water, charge your crystals, tarot, and oracle cards under the light of the moon. 

Please note - The full moons energy does bring some crazy stuff to the service. Hospitals and police departments are on high alert during the full moon because of this. Tensions, emotions, polarity, and anger run high during this phase of the moon without many of us not knowing that the moons powerful force is bringing it to the surface. The full moon is a time to deal with and let go of things that are no longer serving you. So it is no coincidence that the full moon tends to bring up suppressed thoughts and emotions to the surface!

I'd love to know, what have YOU manifested during the moon cycle? Have you noticed a pattern? What have you noticed within yourself during the different stages of the moon?
