Lunar Cycle: New Moons & Full Moons


Lunar Cycle

The lunar cycle is the process that the Earth's Moon passes through in order to complete each of its phases. The phases include the New Moon, Waxing Moon, Full Moon and the Waning Moon, which takes the moon back to its original position. It takes 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 3 seconds for the moon to complete one lunar month.

New Moon

The New Moon marks the beginning of our 29 day lunar month. When a New Moon occurs, our moon is hidden in between the earth and the sun.The moon and the sun are in the same zodiac sign during this time, which causes an increase in concentration and energy. This new energy can be used to set intensions and goals for the month. Use this time to cleanse and meditate off any old energy, in order to allow yourself to accept new energy. Turn over a new leaf and break old habits, this is your time to refresh.

Full Moon

The Full Moon marks the middle of our 29 day lunar month. When a Full Moon occurs, our moon is directly opposite of the sun, causing it to shine bright and be illuminated by the sun's reflection. The moon and sun are on opposite sides of the zodiac circle, which causes the yin & yang effect of deep vibrations. A Full Moon can bring light to some and tensions to others, as emotions and senses are at an all time high. Nevertheless, this is an overall powerful time, filled with healing, growing, learning, and becoming. Take the time to connect with your body, mind and soul.
