Theare often discussed, ask any teacher, nurse or first responder! Even those who don’t normally subscribe to the concept of astrology can’t help but notice the shift that happens with the changing energy of that single , a testament to just how powerful that energy truly is in our lives.
Consider then, for a moment, the concept of the zodiac sign. By studying the position of the sun at the time of our birth, specifically, which zodiac it is in at the time, we are able to make some pretty accurate (in most cases) assumptions about an individuals personality, strengths, weaknesses, and goals for the future. Is it possible that the phase of the moon at the time could also impact you in some way? Wouldn’t it stand to reason if the full moon can alter the behavior of a large portion of the population each and every month, that it also could influence the development of one’s character and personality?
The energy associated with the moon is a very personal one, which is why it is often referred to as the ‘Ruler of Emotions.’ The energy from the moon often works to intensify or play down our emotions, draw specific emotions forward, create mood swings, influence our instinct, or alter the way in which we feel about specific situations in life.“Whereas the Sun gives us our spirit, it’s the Moon that gives us our soul.”
If the moon is such an important influence, does it leave you curious about how it may be at work in your own life? The first step is to determine what the moon phase was at the time you are born. There are a number of online calculators that you can use, including.
If you were born on a New Moon
The new moon often gets a bad rap due to the fact that it’s the darkest point in the lunar calendar, but don’t let that fool you. The new moon isn’t about the darkness, it’s about the opportunity for the future to build something great. You are incredibly open mind, motivated and inspired to make things happen in your life. Others may say ‘it can’t be done,’ but you simply respond with ‘watch me.’ You live for a good challenge, but you also have an introverted side and enjoy your time alone when you can work it into your busy schedule. Relationships can sometimes be complicated as you find yourself torn between your desire to meet and connect with new people and the fact that you are often quite closed off to people. This is due to the fact that you struggle with the idea of trust, reluctant to hand it over until someone has proven to you that they are completely worthy and won’t break your heart.
If you were born on a Waxing Moon
The waxing phase of the moon is the process of the moon growing to it’s fullest potential, and this desire for growth and discovery is strong in your life. You have a love for learning new things, always seeking out new experiences and opportunities. You either thrived and loved your formal education, or you found yourself bored by it as you felt that it didn’t challenge you enough or move quickly enough for your ever-growing mind. You long to travel, spending much of your time planning your next big trip or experience, but you aren’t one to just sit on a beach somewhere tropical. Instead, you want to get out and try new things, filling your vacations with fun and exciting adventures. You are trusting and compassionate, often putting the needs of others before your own. Don’t forget about your own self-care. Highly goal-oriented, you know what you want in life and nothing is going to hold you back, regardless of what life throws your way.
If you were born on a Full Moon
Alright let’s start by getting something clear, you are in no way evil or warped for having been born on the full moon. The crazy shift we see in society during a full moon is triggered by heightened emotions, and that is true for you as well. You feel deeply and intensely, and your emotions guide much of what you say and do. You are incredibly friendly and extroverted, always eager to make new friends and expand your social circle, feeding off the energy that people bring into your life. You will commit to things quickly, and at that moment, you truly do want to take part, but you are quick to change your mind and get distracted, so you may come across as flakey to those that don’t understand how your mind works. Try keeping a planner or calendar, it will help you to stay organized and keep up with your commitments, while also avoiding overextending yourself by agreeing to too much. You love the luxuries in life, which leads you to be highly focused on making money. If you channel this into your job or career it can be a great trait but be careful that you aren’t jumping into get rich quick schemes in the hopes of cheating the process.
If you were born on a Waning Moon
This is the point in the lunar cycle where the moon is coming down from the ‘high’ of the full moon, preparing itself for change and rebirth. You are highly introspective, regularly looking within yourself for new opportunities and areas of your life that you can change and grow in order to become a better person. You are the healers of the world, focused on doing everything in your power to bring happiness, healing and positive energy to the world. You have a love for harmony and natural beauty, always focusing on the possibilities rather than allowing yourself to become overwhelmed during difficult situations. This mindset is the reason why you keep such a level head and calm demeanor. Your love for natural beauty leads you to spend as much time in the outdoors as possible. Surrounding yourself with nothing but the natural environment is the key to recharging yourself physically, mentally and emotionally. Take a nice walk, go camping, or simply spend some quality time at your local park. If you can’t get out of the house, bring houseplants into your space.
