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 Full Moon is extraordinary and can have a positive long term effect in your life path moving forward. The New Moon theme this month is “creative leadership.” The current Pisces Full Moon is building on that theme with the realization that true leadership honors the truth of your inner being. This truth of your being, your essence, has the strength come what may to stand uncompromisingly for your personal truth within the circumstances of your life.
The New Moon this month is packed with creative energy capable of elevating your natural gifts into the realm of personal leadership. Creativity, leadership, and service to the greater good are related and are being activated now in an integrated way. Leo, being a fire sign, incorporates the areas of your life where there is some sort of energy that’s capable of creating a spark. The creative spark must come from activity, from some type of interaction or friction that produces fuel for the Leo fire to burn. This is Leo’s creative process. It requires circumstances in your life to spark the flame of your self-expression.
This Aquarian Full Moon brings a level of personal power to unite body, mind, and spirit through emotional integration. Emotional integration is perhaps the hardest skill to master, but there is extra help available. Any challenging circumstances are opportunities for personal mastery, through your ability to use authentic and mature emotions. This is especially true in the realm of all of your relationships. Uranus is providing additional power to activate an overall pattern of integration and self-mastery.
This month’s New Moon is supporting a three-fold integration of your emotions, mental processes, and spiritual ideals. With the zodiac sign of Cancer there’s the deep desire to fully embody your life, and to experience inner fulfillment and inner stability.
Stability is often felt through home, family, and relationships, however, this is only the most outward manifestation of the Cancerian potentials. Ultimately true stability comes from inner fulfillment and connection to Source.
This Full Moon will bring illumination and activate a new sense of clarity, especially regarding any issues, challenges, projects, or opportunities you are currently working through. In the coming two weeks there is also the potential for a new sense of personal empowerment, fueling your inner stability and nurturing your effective use of power in the world.
The New Moon releases a new wave of available potential that sets the overall theme for the entire month that follows. This month’s Lunar Cycle offers a new tool-set that creates momentum for energizing your life’s purpose. To experience your fullest potential in the coming month allow this energy to guide you, especially while adjusting to changing circumstances.
Each of us is born with a spark of creative fire which stirs inside. This spark guides your development and provides that unique quality referred to as your “essence.” This New Moon will provide some extra help in making specific adjustments designed to bring you into full alignment with your inner spark, your essence.
This Full Moon will bring a greater togetherness between you and your friends. For the next two weeks you’ll notice an increasing urge to share more with those you’re closest to.
We have all experienced the extra momentum during the last two months. For some this momentum has been overwhelming. For others it has propelled them into new territories — of career, personal success, relationship, or perhaps even a new sense of purpose. In the midst of all this growth and change, this Full Moon reminds us of the simpler joys of life, including a deeper appreciation of our friends and family.
