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 in Aires brings us face to face with the unseen forces within our reality. Our ability to see these unseen forces is energized by our Libra Sun which is in opposition to the Moon during the mid-point of our current Lunar cycle. It is at the Full Moon that our conscious realization begins to settle in to an understanding of what was introduced at the New Moon.

Our New Moon in Virgo brings a new quality we’re calling the “nobility of quintessence.” This quality represents your ability to embody your pure essence and bring it into your everyday life.
The concept of quintessence we’ll be using in today’s article comes from the ancient philosophy of a spiritual consciousness or essence that permeates all of nature. This consciousness we call quintessence is the same intelligent essence that composes the celestial bodies. I like this traditional definition because of the spiritual connotation that connects personal astrology with the astrology of celestial bodies.

Our New Moon in Leo is embodying a new and volatile quality of creative intensity. The degree of this intensity will affect you as an individual, as well as the entire planet.
This is energy that must be managed. Leo’s solar intensity can be full of light and inspired personal power, or it can be reckless and self serving. In the worst cases it can scorch the entire fabric of society with aggressive and overbearing creative power.
This Leo Lunar cycle holds both extremes and will undoubtedly have a major impact on humanity as a whole. Individually the creative use of our Leo New Moon energies will help you take whatever action is appropriate in your circumstances. For those working on a larger level, this cycle represents a critical time period that will allow you to tap into the magnitude of what’s occurring on our planet.
Our Full Moon in Aquarius is highlighting a new awareness of our shift into the Aquarian Age. This new Age that we are stepping into is beginning to change our individual concepts of reality and this Full Moon is facilitating that shift. The modern understanding of Aquarius, ruled by the planet Uranus, stems from the Uranian energies of independence, freedom and individuality. These are the qualities of Aquarius that will blossom into a new Age of collective cooperation, based on mutual respect and appreciation for individualized contribution.
