Moon Facts

The moon has long been regarded as a mark of femininity. In past times the moon was revered and is considered by many as an influential source of energy. Many individuals are also of the belief that there is a connection between the moon and the unconscious mind as well as humanity’s femininity. The holiness of the moon is also believed to be linked with most elements in a life’s cycle. Besides being associated to the growth and re-growth of crops according to their timely seasons, the moon’s varying phases is also seen to play an important part in a female’s menstruation cycle and thus, indirectly have power over fertility. Since the beginning of time, the moon calendar holds a vital role in people’s lives especially as varying festivals are celebrated in its different phases.

New Moon

A brand new moon is conceived when the sun and moon are aligned as they happen to be in the same spot of the sky as viewed from our planet’s surface. During this period, sunlight is not mirrored by the moon and cannot be viewed unless a solar eclipse occurs. The earth is now within range of the moon’s brightest side. The fresh moon phase also marks the beginning of new happenings such as the Goddess’ Maiden appearance and Spring time. Many people also rejoiced in the new crescent moon as it is considered to have come back to life.

This period also bears other meanings such as renewal of energy, freshness, reconstruction, development and the conception of hope. You are advised to advocate changes in this stage of your life, and should also consider putting an end to unsavory habits and stale relationships.

The full moon is born within 14 to 15 days after a new moon is conceived. Like its name implies the full name looks like a fully rounded disc. The moon’s brightest side faces our planet. Sunlight shines from the sun and is reflected upon the full moon optimally.

This period marks the beginning of harvest aplenty, growth and wholeness — productive and abundant with the complete force of feminine elements and inexplicable secrets. It can be likened to Summer time as well as the Mother form of the Goddess which bears new life.

Babies born whenever a full moon occurs are said to live an extended and fruitful life. This is due to the full force of the moon’s brimming over with magical elements. Mythical creatures such as the werewolf is believed to only come out when a full moon shines.

Waxing Moon

— the moon grows in size. It morphs from a slim crescent and gravitates to form a full moon. The waxing moon widens from right to left and has been labeled the “right-hand moon”. An interesting trivia is that the crescent is similar to the arc between a man’s right index finger and thumb.

Waning Moon

— the moon is now gradually degenerating from being a full moon to being a mere crescent as the new moon phase is about to occur. The waning moon’s size degenerates from right to left and is considered to be the “left-hand moon” due to the likeness of a man’s left hand arc. The moon’s energy is not as its strongest and can be connected with the Goddess’ Crone character.

Gibbous Moon

— this chronicles the phase between the first quarter and the full moon as well as the complete moon and the Final Quarter. This can be seen when more than 50% of the moon’s surface is lighted up.

  • Holly Vaughn

    This is amazing information and I thank you so much for your hard work for everyone here! But for someone like me who’s looking for the full moon dates to add to her calendar, and needs to be accurate about the dates (for religious holidays, etc), you’re missing a very important piece of information (unless I’m just not seeing it on this page).

    You always need to add which Time Standard you’re using for your Moon Phase Calendars. Otherwise, if you’re using, say, UMT or UTC (or whatevertheheck) and the full moon time is 1am, and the date on your Calendar says the 5th… well those of us here in the U.S., the correct calendar date is actually going to be the 4th and it’ll be late in the evening when it hits full for us.

    Anyway, sorry. I know that tone is hard to read in text. I’m not trying to be judgmental or critical… just helpful. Thank you muchly for posting this amazing site about our most beauteous lunar globe! =)
