Moon cycles are incredibly powerful...
for the balance of every living being.
WE'RE TALKING MOON PHASES FOR THIS YEAR - WHAT EACH PHASE MEANS, REPRESENTS, SPECIFIC MOON CYCLE DATES & THEMES.
NEW MOON | This moon is actually dark and rises in the morning. Use the energy of this phase, where both Sun and Moon are aligned in the Zodiac, to set intentions for your journey or start a new project, move, purchases, etc. This is the optimal time to make plans for what you'd like to come into fruition.
FULL MOON | This highly emotional lunar phase takes place when the Sun and Moon are opposite in the Zodiac and will give you the push to let go of the things, people and circumstances that no longer serve you. Work on your own desires, needs and grounding during this phase.
LUNAR ECLIPSE | Three times the power of a standard full moon, this happens when Earth passes between the Moon and the Sun. This phase paves the road ahead with the opportunity to let go, quit habits and finish up loose ends.
SOLAR ECLIPSE | During this sacred New Moon, the Moon passes through Mother Earth and the Sun. This is a time that the intentions we set place from now until the next Full Moon, will surface six months later.
BLUE MOON | Two full moons within one month. Use this extra monthly moon to peer into your own soul. What is not working anymore? What needs re-balancing? What needs shifting? Aim to do this without the distraction of others or technology.
BLACK MOON | This reflection-less moon is literally dark and also known as Lilith, dark or Dead Moon. In this phase psychic abilities and clarity through dreams, signs or visions are heightened. This is a time to turn inward - feel grief or other emotions, all to start anew.
SUPER MOON | During this phase, the Moon makes it closest approach to Mother Earth. This magnificent sight and gravity-charged alignment is one to shake you to your core. Expect heightened emotions, heavier menstrual flow and a slight change in sleep pattern.
each 2016 monthly moon is listed below with their date, moon phase, theme + native American full moon name.
