Understanding the  

Moon Cycles

Every month the Moon – our night sky luminary that guides us to FEEL our way forward,

attune to our Intuition,

and ‘see’ where our daily habits are working for us or against us –

brings a new cycle of Self/Soul growth potential.

Each month’s New Moon will be in a zodiac sign that in turn activates themes within your Horoscope.


After a few months you’ll be amazed at what you begin to ‘see’ more consciously about yourself,

how you Emotionally deal with situations and people in your life

(depending upon the theme activated that month).


New Moon


A seed of unrealized potential is planted this day, with the theme from the sign the Moon is in at that moment. In turn, you learn WHERE this seed is activating within your own chart, for the next month. Here the Sun and Moon sit in the same place in the sky – a combination of fire/action/Soul with water/emotion/Ego. This phase begins the waxing portion of the Moon Cycle – growing, moving, changing.

Crescent Moon


A phase where there is a struggle between letting go of the Old (same old habits or way of BEing, Emotionally) in order to make room for the New – a new aspect of your Soul Self making its way into your consciousness.

1st Quarter Moon


This phase brings some kind of CRISIS to ACT, whereby the ACTION breaks the binds of old habits in order to initiate much-needed CHANGE showing up from deep within you.

Gibbous Moon


By this phase we see the development of our Self/Soul growth and are able to evaluate how well we are doing with it (as in, is there any Ego resistance, denial, distractions taking place yet?).

Full Moon


Here the Moon is fully reflecting the light of the Sun (they sit opposite one another) revealing the Sun’s unconscious desires (and AHA! moments) finally BEing illuminated now. Here we ‘see’ what we’ve really been growing anew from deep Within, easily or not, depending on how active our Ego self has been so far this Moon cycle!

Disseminating Moon


This phase denotes the waning portion of the Moon cycle – something within us is dying – consciously or not – with ease and grace or not (depends on how creative and wily our Ego is!). Here we reap the Wisdom of the abundance of what we learned from the New Moon to Full Moon phases, and perhaps be teacher to others in our world as we share this Wisdom.

Last Quarter Moon


This phase really shows us how our Ego is showing up via resistance, denial, acting out as it needs to, trying to prevent some piece of itself from dying. There will be a Crisis of Consciousness – a reorientation of some sort within Self. Making a decision, one way or another.

Balsamic Moon


This last phase brings an Emotional Release of ALL of what you have unearthed this Moon cycle – please allow it to occur. We don’t want to bring it with us into the next New Moon phase or cycle. LET GO and LET GOD / GODDESS / GREAT SPIRIT.

NEW! Progressed Moon Reading: 


Progressions are another Astrological tool that bring timely insights about the WHY of Inner, Emotionally-oriented change in your life at key years, that may also coincide with other Planetary cycles moving through your Birth chart.


During this 1.5 hour reading, a list, created from your Birth chart, will explore the Progressed Moon Times of your life according to the 8 phases of the Moon.


Each phase lasts approximately 3.5 years, waxing forward from New Moon, to Crescent, to 1st QTR, to Gibbous, to Full, then waning off into Disseminating, Last QTR, and finally the Balsamic phase - where we let go of whatever, whomever is no longer "growing corn" in our lives - including aspects of Self.


The whole Progressed Moon process lasts approximately 29.5 - 30 years in our lives, then starts over again. From Birth to whenever we decide to leave this planet, the Progressed Moon cycle continues.


Each phase begins at a certain Zodiac sign, activating a certain House of Life Experience.


We'll also chat about the Moon phase you were born under - which emphases the recurring times of that same Moon phase for the rest of your life. How you Emotionally Process Life. And points out the phase you're in now - will be in or were in recently - what they each mean, and how it relates to the challenges and changes that have occurred so far in your life, and even currently.


Yet another Insightful, useful way to learn more about Your Emotional Process in your life.


Offered via Zoom video or Phone - includes: ZOOM recording, Progressed Moon phases list, handouts/worksheet about your Moon/Emotional Nature, the Progressed Moon phases descriptions and how/when to navigate them.
