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.

Our Full Moon astrology for the next two weeks continues to focus on the planet Venus, personal freedom, and the Summer Solstice with an additional focus on the challenges that arise where our desire for personal freedom unexpectedly clashes with everyday circumstances.
The Summer Solstice occurs on the Full Moon and is providing that extra push we all need in order to experience more freedom and a personal influx of beauty, truth, and what we value in life. This is the time to cut loose, shine bright, and to hold yourself to your highest standards.
The New Moon astrology for this month is unusual and powerful. Venus is exactly conjunct the New Moon, and releasing its magic of love and beauty into a perfect grand square astrology pattern. You can expect to find health, stability, and a new sense of purpose as this incredible month unfolds.
With the Sun, Moon, and Venus all perfectly aligned at the New Moon, there is a definite emphasis on health, love, and beauty.

Our Full Moon astrology for the next two weeks is extremely dynamic and full of intensity. It’s this very intensity that is helping provide the energy needed to expand your awareness to enable you to clearly see what you want and then discern the best course of action needed to pursue it. During the past six weeks the Lunar cycle has brought into focus a shift in power. This shift in power is through all levels, from global to personal, and includes personal access to a new level of Inspiration During Challenging Times.
The New Moon astrology for this month builds on last month’s “Shift in Power” to help keep you inspired with tools for coping with the natural challenges or conflicts that may arise from changes and shifts that occur as life begins to re-balance.
Our New Moon energies will help you gain insight and perspective on just how extensive last month’s energy shifts actually were. In fact, any backlash you experience in your life this month is extremely beneficial in the large scheme of personal growth and development.
Our Full Moon astrology is bringing our awareness beyond the “shift in power” which was initiated to weeks ago at the New Moon. Over the past few days there’s been substantial shift in power, and now the Full Moon is using this new energy in a very specific way, for the expansion of consciousness.
The term “expansion of consciousness” is somewhat ambiguous so let me offer some specifics. With our current Full Moon, this expansion is occurring at both the individual level as well as the social level. By social I mean the collective expansion of our society.
The New Moon astrology for this month points to a major shift in the power structures in the circumstances around you. This shift refers to a release of pent-up energy capable of transforming personal power, social power, and even perhaps the political powers of the world.
This dramatic triggering and release of energies has far-reaching implications. There is potentially much at stake. I will attempt to explain this energy shift and outline a practical strategy that will enable you to take advantage of changes that you may experience in your life as a result of this release.
A Lunar Eclipse opens a portal that offers a unique activation stemming from the power of the Full Moon. The portal releases a special cosmic gift resulting in a new ability, or insight, you can use for inspired action in your life. The Eclipse portal will remain active until the Moon passes the through the eclipse location during the next lunar cycle.
