Gibbous Moon - The moon is now 8 - 14 days old from the New Moon and it is 135-180 degrees ahead of the Sun. This is the time for patience and for drawing up energy for the coming Full Moon.
The Gibbous Moon rises midafternoon and sets before dawn. She is the bulging Moon getting ready to be full, visible soon after she rises until she sets. The Gibbous Moon is the BUD of the lunar plant, the pulse of life tightly wrapped, wanting to expand. Keywords for the Gibbous phase are: analyze, prepare, and trust. It is the time in a lunar cycle to process the results of the actions taken during the First Quarter. During this phase you are gathering information. Give up making judgments. It will only lead to worry. Your knowledge is incomplete. Laugh. Analyze and filter. LOOK WITHIN. For those born in a Gibbous Moon phase their talents lie in the ability to refine, organize and purify. They are seekers, utilizing spiritual tools as guides on their path.
Moon in Aries - The Moon in Aries lights a fire under our tails; it wakes us up and strips away our complications and our patience. We can make a fresh start but tend to shoot from the hip, move fast, argue quickly. This transit is a time to initiate, speak up and honor independence. The Moon in Aries asks to wake up and remember who we are even if it bothers those we love or work. Tempers, tears and passions run hot. Moon in Aries is a time of new beginnings, intense activity, pioneering in any field, reaching out with emotional surges, and impulsiveness. This moon is the great tester of limits. While the Moon is in Aries you may want to depend on yourself, as there is also a certain amount of ego involvement. The Aries Moon is based in impulsiveness and acting on feelings of the moment, rather than the result of reason. Sometimes snap decisions are made - later to be regretted. Selfishness could be an issue, so be extra sensitive to others. Moon in Aries is the best time to work magick involving leadership, authority, rebirth, spiritual conversion or willpower. Healing rituals for ailments of the face, head or brain are also done during this period of time. For those born under an Aries Moon sign they are passionate, honest, and fierce, big-hearted but intensely self-directed. They are happy to loan their fire to inspire others, just don't tell them what to do.
Sun Day - this is the Day of Intent, Creation and Renewal... there are Major magickal energies for Beginnings and Changes.
