Are you hearing all this talk about the moon and its energy? Do you wonder how you can harness this energy to make your dreams come true?


Ancestors during the Ice Age were carving lunar calendars 32,000 years ago. Ancient Egyptians joined the calendar craze around 6000 BC. These calendars were used for planting, hunting and keeping track of the seasons. Since 1828, Farmer’s Almanac, has been listing gardening suggestions according to the moon and is still going strong. 


First, you may be asking what are moon cycles anyway?


The lunar phase or phase of the moon is the shape of the directly sunlit portion of the moon as viewed from Earth (according to Wikipedia). The lunar phases go through a distinct cycle over the period of a month.


The four phases of the moon that you may have heard about are: new moon, first quarter, full moon, and third quarter (also known as last quarter).


  •    New Moon is great for planting new seeds.
  •   First Quarter is for building up that energy.
  •    Full Moon is great for fulfillment.
  •    Last Quarter is great for breaking down the blockages.

Now are you wondering what this moon cycle stuff has to do with YOU?

In terms of Astrology, the moon governs the realm of intuitive thinking as well as emotions. 

Not a surprise – right?

How many times have you noticed an increase in emotional outbursts around the full moon? (Just ask your friends who are cops or are working in an emergency room.) 


Makes sense.


The moon impacts Earth’s waters…


We’re made up of 75% water. So let’s


Read on to learn how the energy of the new moon and full moon can be used to your advantage OR  skip straight to the short video.



What am I actually asking you to do with this moon “energy”?


1. Get in the flow

Align with the cosmic energy of the moon.

Have your emotions in sync with your goals, projects and desires. Is it a time to be more patient? More excited? Do you need to dig deep to discover what’s blocking you from success?

Recognize if you’re feeling more sensitive or perhaps impatient. Trust your intuition with the answer.


2. Work with the Moon Cycle

If the moon is waxing (that building up time as the moon is getting larger) use this time for increase. Add. Add to your to-do list. Add to the energy of success.

If the moon is waning (that decreasing time as the moon is getting smaller) use this time for release. This is perfect energetic time for breaking habits. Something not working and you need to say, No More! The moon has your back! 



3. Take Advantage of the New and Full Moon

New moon is time for planting new seeds. Full Moon is time for giving birth. Nurture your dreams with the natural flow. Discover what’s blocking your success and release it.

This is a time for making life easier.

Use the powerful energy of new and full moon to make adjustments  necessary for achieving what you want.

Take back control. Reclaim peace. Allow life to be easier. Get in the cosmic flow!


Using lunar energy is simple and easy and SO beneficial.
