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.

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.

This month’s Full Moon astrology brings a new awareness to what it means to live in harmony and to cooperate with those who are in rhythm with your own personal truth.
Two weeks have transpired since the last New Moon, which introduced a new energy in the form of a personal message of truth. What’s now being activated at the Full Moon is a deeper understanding of what is means to cooperate with others, while staying grounded in your new sense of personal truth.
This month’s New Moon energies bring a personal message to each of us. This message will vary from person to person, depending on circumstances and where you are in your life’s journey. In this article I hope to shed some light on the breadth of possibility available, and help you discover what your personal message might be.

Our Christmas Full Moon of 2015 will be an event to be remembered, not only for the glittering lights and gifts that accompany the season, but for the coalescing of all the energies that have come together on this auspicious day. It is precisely this energetic coming-together that creates the larger opportunity for a “royal banquet,” rather than a mere social gathering. The astrology of this year’s Christmas Day is quite fascinating. There are three main elements that stand out in our Christmas astrology chart. Together they create this special celebration and opportunity. The first element relates to the word “royal” that I have specifically chosen to describe the special significance of what’s being celebrated beyond the traditional festivities of the day. The exact Sabian Degree for the Moon suggests that the Christmas energies are illuminating your own connection to your higher-self and Soul.
Winter Solstice each and every year is an important and powerful milestone. This year’s Winter Solstice is perhaps the most spectacular event I’ve covered since the ending of the Mayan Calendar on Dec 21, 2012. I believe it’s more than just a coincidence that the Mayan calendar ended exactly three years ago. The number three (3) holds the same frequency as the planet Venus, which gives us some important insight into a special opportunity that goes beyond what is already special about this holiday season. The Reason this Winter Solstice is so Important …
