Are You a Full, Half or Dark Moon Type?

fantasy woman
Are You a Full, Half or Dark Moon Type?

It was a revelatory moment for me, to find out the Moon phase I was born in. Are you a full, half-Moon or new Moon kinda person? Do you have a waxing or waning nature?

I was born at the waning dark of the Moon, when there’s a turning inward to prepare for a new cycle. Oh yeah! A wrap up lifetime, in sync with the winding down and all-is-revealed-as-illusion spirit of our times. That’s always been an undercurrent in my life.

In readings, it adds a new dimension, when a client finds out they’re a full Moon or new Moon baby, or a point in between. I know two artists that are new Moon babes, in fire sign Aries, and they embody that shining forth and thrust into new experiences. One even became a founding member of a New Moon arts collective.

Your Moon phase is the Sun-Moon relationship at the time of your birth. It’s the point you were born in the never ending waxing and waning cycle.

The Sun is traditionally seen as yang, radiating, external engagement with life. The Moon, is yin, the reflected light, the instinctual.

The solar-lunar relationship shows how you take in and reflect back light (the energies in your environment).

In his book, the Lunation Cycle, astrologer Dane Rudhyar wrote of the lunar phases as an accurate indicator of life purpose and basic personality. Discovering my own balsamic, or Dark Moon phase helped me understand my own sense of disconnection to current culture. It’s considered a wrap up lifetime, to some astrologers, with short intense relationships, to tie up loose ends.

What’s Your Moon Phase?
The lunar phases come from the four crossroads points (Full, New and Half Moons), and four further divisions within those. There are a total of eight Moon phases. Find your own Moon phase, and see chart examples. You can also simply input your birth year and month at StarDate.org to see the Moon phases and find your day.

Astrology of Today – January 17, 2016

Summary:

Mars is near the midpoint of a Venus-Jupiter square. This is a very sociable, fertile, relationship-oriented time, but can also be a time of some indulgence and excess. Entertaining can be in focus. Competitive feelings experienced now can be stimulating and invigorating. Feelings of elation in love or with regards to the pleasures of life can lead us to overdo, overindulge, overspend, and overstate our feelings. Mars is moving into a trine with Neptune, however, which can soften the rough edges. Creative energy is strong now.

  • The Moon is in Aries all day until 12:48 AM.
  • The Moon is void until 12:48 AM (since 6:26 PM yesterday).
  • The Moon is in Taurus from 12:48 AM forward.
  • The Moon is waxing and in its First Quarter phase.
  • A First Quarter Moon occurred yesterday, and a Full Moon will occur on the 23rd.
  • Mercury is retrograde (Mercury is retrograde from January 5-25).
