Gibbous Moon - The waxing Gibbous Moon is 13 days from the New Moon and is about 135 - 180 degrees ahead of the sun. This is a time for patience and for drawing up energy for the coming of the Full Moon (on Tuesday, February 7th).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 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.  Those born in a Gibbous Moon phase will find their talents lie in the ability to refine, organize and purify. They are seekers, utilizing spiritual tools as guides on their path.

Moon in Cancer -  The Moon in Cancer deepens our feelings; our moods are stormy and vast, our hunger and desire to feed others sharpens. We protect our own, nest in our cave, need to know we're safe. Hunger grows, but for more than food. This is a time to nest, comfort, secure, dive deep into feelings - our feelings take the lead. Cancer encourages the wisdom rising out of our oceanic unconscious through moods and feelings. Ground in the magic of our home (earth) as a temple. Ask what needs protecting and feeding. This transit concerns desires about a home, emotional security, entertaining friends, cooking, nostalgia, and the desire to nurture. Moon in Cancer brings heightened sensitivity, the desire to nurture and create a home. Moon in Cancer is the best time to work magick for home and domestic life. Healing rituals for ailments of the chest or stomach are also done during this period of time.  Those born under a Cancer Moon sign can be wonderfully nurturing to our culture, body, and soul when we feel safe. Early mother/home issues can composted into empathic understanding.
