The Moon's Effect on Our Daily Life

Even if we do not consciously believe in the influence of the moon in our modern lives, our collective unconscious still holds the information from our ancestors who knew that the moon's cycles affected their bodies, their emotions, and could benefit their hunting and farming. The moon touches the lives of all people in one way or another. Why riot try paying attention to the phases of the moon and see how it influences our lives?

The moons cycles correspond with the Triple Goddess. The Maiden represents the New Moon, the Mother, the Full Moon, and the Crone, the Dark Moon. There are specific energy paths of the moon. During the Crescent Moon, the moon is waxing or growing. The word "create" conies from the word" crescent.'' It is a time to start new projects and consider new ideas and new ways of looking at situations. The Full Moon is a time to take action, to get projects done, and to work on what you planned during the New Moon. The waning noon, known as the Dark moon, is a time for healing, meditation, and resting, a time for letting go of the things in life that no longer serve you. It is also a time to dream of the future, and keep a dream journal. Try noting on a calendar the moon's phases for two months, to help you remember the phase she is in, and see how it affects your life.

The three phases also are found in a yearly pattern. The New Moon, the planning time, is from the date of your birthday through six months. The Full Moon, the creative time, is the next five months, and the Dark Moon, the letting go and dreaming period is the last month before your birthday. That is why just before our birthday we tend to get introspective and sometimes emotional.

Being aware of the moon's cycles and how it influences our life and emotions can make our life easier. Why not go with the energy flow of the moon instead of against it? Our energy flows wax and wane as the moon's does, and when we work with this energy we can take advantage of the fact that we can get more accomplished by doing creative projects when the moon is full, and we can be more in touch with our inner selves when the moon is waning. As you follow the rhythms of the moon and the seasons you become more connected with the natural world around us and are at peace with yourself and others.
