As the closest astronomical body to Earth, the Moon has a deeper Influence on us humans than any Planet.

The Moon influences the tides of the oceans and seas.  As we are mostly made of water, the Moon Phases also have great Influence on us humans, affecting our Moods + Emotions + Energy Levels.

Each phase of the Moon brings with it a special energy that affects that whole phase of the Lunar Cycle. Understanding the different Energies of the Moon Phases is very helpful to connect with and use in you rituals, spells, meditations, personal projects and even in your business.

Each phase of the moon lasts approximately 5 days.

The New Moon

The New Moon is the first phase in the Lunar  Cycle. The side of the Moon that receives the sun’s light is facing away from Earth, so the Moon is invisible to us.

On a very clear night, you might be able to make out a faint gray outlined view of the moon. This comes from the light of the sun being reflected off the Earth and back out to the moon.

One day after the new moon, a faint sliver outline can be seen low on the western horizon at sunset. The moon has moved from new to a waxing crescent phase. As the moon continues in its counterclockwise orbit, the crescent grows larger, or waxes.

The New Moon phase energy is best for pursuing personal growth, healing and blessing of new projects or ventures. It’s also a good time to cleanse and start using new things or switch over to new systems or programs.
