What is Lunar Astrology?
Lunar astrology is the study of the eight phases of the Sun/Moon relationship in the monthly lunar cycle.
Each New Moon there is a release of cosmic energy to the Earth. This new energy transforms life and consciousness through eight phases of development.
What is The Lunar Journal?
The Lunar Journal follows the lunar cycle. This bi-monthly astrology publication maps personal success to lunar astrology and the lunar cycle.
The Sun and the Moon work in harmony to energize all new successful growth. The Sun provides the energy, while the Moon supports integration through natural processes of time.
The Lunar Journal helps you connect to these potentials in your daily life.
The Lunar Cycle
The lunar cycle is divided into four quarters. The Moon travels through these quarters during its orbit around the Earth. The Moon’s movement consists of the following quarters, each representing 90°.
- New Quarter
- First Quarter
- Full Quarter
- Last Quarter
In addition to the four quarters, the Moon also presents in eight lunation phases as the result of the Sun and Moon working together.
The truest meaning of the Moon in any astrology chart takes into consideration the significance of the Sun/Moon phase. For example, to fully understand the success and growth dynamics of an individual we use both the lunar cycle and the eight phases of the Moon.
The Eight Lunar Phases
The New Phase
The 1st phase of the cycle releases a new pattern with the momentum and zest to discover its potential. Each New Moon is unique and follows an organic and instinctual pattern of growth.
The Crescent Phase
In the 2nd phase the original momentum begins to slow, with a natural willingness to overcome any obstacle that is in the way. A spontaneous approach with small successful steps ensures steady and continued growth.
The First Quarter Phase
The 3rd phase is critical to the quality of growth throughout the remaining cycle. Practical and decisive activity is critical in establishing the best outcome or direction forward. Choices and circumstances will shape the individual character, determining what and how life unfolds.
The Gibbous Phase
The 4th phase is creatively in sync with the rational and analytical processes of making adjustments. Aligning with the intelligent design of Nature allows inquisitiveness to become one’s teacher of success. This phase prepares for the coming shift in consciousness and the realization of purpose.
The Full Phase
The 5th phase activates a new level of awareness with the realization, or full picture, of the purpose of what was originally released at the beginning of the cycle. Objectivity and clarity are in full operation. There is an understanding of what must be done to successfully relate circumstances to personal potential.
The Disseminating Phase
The 6th phase consciously expands one’s individual awareness to include more of the world around them. Past learning, including experiences and challenges that were overcome, become markers of success to be shared. Common experiences then unite like minds to participate and share in a larger process, expanding one’s success to include others.
The Last Quarter Phase
The 7th phase is critical to the development of consciousness. It supports mature thinking, where the bigger picture of life is firmly grasped. There is a great power that lies within the choice to change one’s own perspective. The quickness of an individualized mind understands the ways that growth and success have been conditioned by society. Changing one’s perspective has the power to change one’s reality.
The Balsamic Phase
The 8th phase brings to conclusion the current growth cycle. The potential of what was originally released has now reached its pinnacle and all that’s left is the future. At this phase, each cycle incorporates its success, growth, and understanding into the seed of the cycle to come.
This final phase is full of hope and new potential. It inspires forward thinking. Letting go of past failures allows for unfettered momentum to nourish the soul that desires growth.

This month’s Lunar energies are bringing new insight that will expand your ideas of fulfillment and help us learn how each of us can, in practical terms, life a more fulfilled life.
Our Full Moon astrology brings a message of hope and connection to the guiding intelligence that was introduced during our Aquarius New Moon and Solar eclipse event on Feb 16th. The Full Moon chart expresses an acceleration of growth that is actually occurring as you read this article.
Our solar eclipse in Aquarius introduces a new principle into our awareness to act as a guiding intelligence for anyone who has the desire to move forward in life using positive momentum.
The Lunar eclipse, generally speaking, has a much greater significance on our consciousness than is commonly appreciated. From my astrological point of view, taking personal advantage of this unique and powerful celestial event is a huge opportunity for primary focus during the coming cycle. The significance of this particular eclipse stands out in my mind because of the dramatic impact of our last Lunar eclipse in August of 2017, which carried the energetic signature of the new age of Aquarius that we are entering.
Our New Moon astrology presents a powerful Capricorn archetype that’s intended to develop a new capacity for personal power. This coming month will be time in which you’re able to experience new ways to participate in what is worthwhile, both for yourself and your world.
Our New Year Full Moon astrology presents a beautiful and powerful Kite pattern with which to usher in the new year. The kite pattern within the Cancer Moon signifies the possibility of launching our year with a signature of unified harmony that can be organized toward positive fulfillment for all. The chart for the January 1 Full Moon shows that this is a year in which power structures can change for the betterment of all. We have countless examples in the world today where power is concentrated at the top to benefit the few, and where abundance and privilege are reserved for those who hold positions of power.
Our Sagittarius New Moon astrology is filled with good news for those who feel inspired to have a greater clarity about their purpose and place in the world. And for those who are struggling with issues of life purpose, there is good news as well, with the very real possibility for new type of clarity and hope in the future.
Our Gemini Full Moon astrology has positioned the Moon in the Full phase of the Lunar cycle, building to a fulcrum point of objectivity. I’m bringing this idea of objectivity forward because, even though it is always a key quality of the Full Moon, objectivity is especially emphasized now. This is because there are two very powerful T-squares that play a prominent role in the Full Moon chart, and our understanding of how to best
