There’s no doubt about the fact the Moon is a powerful influence on our lives. Before we had weather forecast, crops were planted according to the phase of the Moon and studies have shown a correlation between violent incidents and the full Moon. When you think about the fact that the Moon influences the tides and we are mainly made up of water, then it’s easy to see how the Moon affects us. If you’re looking for success however, the Moon can be your biggest ally – and the easiest planet by far to check on. When we compare what we set out to do against the phase of the Moon at the time then this can really shed light on whether our diet failed or we keep on attracting the wrong kind of partner! So, if you begin to check the Moon’s phase before you commit to major decisions, you may soon notice that things work out in your favour more often.
Even if you can’t see the Moon it doesn’t mean it’s not there! Check an ephemeris or our forecasts here on AK as they will tell you what sign the Moon is in and also give you the date of the next new Moon (and what house it is in in your chart). The new Moon is a time of new beginnings, so if you want a new home, a new job, or a new relationship or to embark on something new, this is the time to initiate that.
- Look at prospective new homes
- Buy new things
- Make new friends
- Apply for a new job or arrange an interview
- Start a new diet or exercise regime
- Begin or look for a new romance
When the Moon looks like a letter ‘D’ in the sky it is a waxing Moon. This Moon occurs a week to 14 days after the new Moon and it is time to now push ahead with the plans you began back then. It’s time to get out and get socialising, to date, to connect and to follow up on things you put in motion such as continuing with job applications and interviews.
- Start eating healthy and exercise
- Take a chance
- Nurture connections old and new
- Communicate and reach out
- Keep the momentum going with plans and projects
The full Moon has traditionally been considered a magical time and gives you the power to bring about outcomes. This should see a culmination of events you set in motion around the new Moon. For example, if you are looking to move this is the time to sign the contract or lease on your new home, to accept that job offer or launch that product or business. If you started seeing someone new, this may be the time to move things onto the next level.
- Sign contracts
- Begin or accept a new job
- Launch a business
- Commit to something
- Go travelling
The waning Moon looks like the letter ‘C’ in the sky and this happens three to 10 days after the full Moon. This is the time to tie up any loose ends and if you want to end or finish something now is the time to do this – for example end a relationship you know has no future, quit smoking or go on a diet, de-clutter and rid yourself of anything you don’t want to take on into the new cycle which begins at the next new Moon.
- Quit bad habits
- Lead a healthier lifestyle
- Attend to wellbeing
- End anything that no longer serves you
- Pay off debts
- Finish projects
By working with the Moon’s phases you up your chances of getting the result you want – and don’t forget – with the Moon you always get another chance at a new phase of life the next month!
