Waxing Crescent Moon - It's age is 1 to 5 days - it is 45-90 degrees ahead of the sun. The crescent faces East - the gates of rebirth. The moon rises at midmorning and sets after sunset. The crescent's greatest strength is at the midpoint. Work for animals, business, change, emotions, matriarchal strength.
She is the first visible sliver of Moon seen in the western sky in the late afternoon and early evening. The Crescent Moon is the SPROUT. The seed has broken through the earth and reaches up as she ventures from the dark, moist earth she has known. Keywords for the Crescent phase are: expansion, growth, struggle, and opportunity. It is the time in a lunar cycle that you gather the wisdom learned in the New phase and communicate your intention to move forward- state your goals for this cycle. Light a candle. Write or read an affirmation. LISTEN & ABSORB. Commit to your goal(s). Those who were born during a waxing crescent phase find they must break from the past in order to create their own destiny.
Moon in Pisces - The Moon in Pisces reveals our permeability. We dream and need to ground our dreams. We care, but can become overwhelmed by our awareness unless we feel spirit working through us. This transit is a time to imagine, share, sense, meditate, nurture, soak, and find constructive ways to be sensitive. During Moon in Pisces emotional life is more introverted, intuition is at its height and psychic energy is powerful. You are able to get in touch with your deepest self, but it can also be a time of vagueness, unclarity, and uncertainty. Pisces is about endings as a result of internal processing. You may notice a lot of people around you being moody. A lot of women have a good cry during this transit and they may need your shoulder to lean on and share their troubles with. We cry during Moon in Pisces because it's the most watery of all signs. Pisces Moon brings a retreat into the self to do the internal processing and contemplation necessary at least once during a lunar cycle. The outer world busyness becomes clouded and cold hard facts slide through your fingers like slippery fish. Things are not what they seem, so don't be confused by this transit. With Moon in Pisces we feel the world with compassion, heightened senses and strong imagination. We need quiet time in the temple or back under our covers to deal with sensory overload. This transit can be a time to vision, listen to our inner voices, allow creative juices to flow and to touch each other with new awareness. Moon in Pisces is the best time to work magick involving dreamwork, clairvoyance, telepathy, music and the creative arts. Healing rituals for ailments of the feet or lymph glands are also done at this time. Those born under a Pisces moon came here to feel everything; they may need to filter impressions and find their deep strengths. These people offer us insight, imagination and subtle, compassionate medicine while encouraging our vision.
