The lunar calendar, including the major phases of the Moon, can affect our lives in many ways. In 2023 there will be several lunar events, including new moons, full moons, and eclipses, that can bring new beginnings, clarity, and completion. Understanding the astrological significance of these events can help us navigate life's challenges with greater ease and grace.

​The Phases of The Moon

The Moon goes through eight phases in each month, beginning with a new moon, then a waxing crescent, a first quarter, a waxing gibbous, a full moon, a waning gibbous, a third quarter, and finally a waning crescent.

New Moons in Astrology

New moons are often associated with new beginnings and are considered an auspicious time to set goals and make changes. As the moon enters its dark phase, astrologers consider it a good time to focus on the ideas you want to implement in the coming weeks. The zodiac sign in which the new moon occurs can also influence your emotions and intentions at this time.

​Full Moons in Astrology

In astrology, full moons mark the completion of a cycle. They are associated with clarity and completion. The moon is at its brightest and illuminates everything. It is a time to reflect on what you have achieved and learned since the new moon and to reap the rewards of your efforts. Full Moons are usually intense, so this is a good time to take a step back and focus on reflection and contemplation rather than starting new projects or initiatives.

Eclipses in Astrology

Solar and lunar eclipses occur twice a year. They can bring unexpected changes and intensify the energy of new and full moons. A solar eclipse occurs during a new moon and can bring new beginnings as well as unforeseen twists and turns. Lunar eclipses occur during a full moon and can bring completion or closure, as well as heightened emotions and unexpected events. Rather than fearing eclipses, it is important to approach them with an open mind. Understanding that they can bring unexpected changes, but that changes can ultimately lead to growth and personal development.
