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.

The Revolutionary Mind Continues to Awaken — Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse Astrology Report June 5, 2020
Our Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse is extremely charged with inspiration to connect with new ideas and understanding. In addition to inspiration, the astrology pattern speaks directly to the challenges that are being presented to the world at this very moment. This intensity of challenge is amplified by our Lunar eclipse.
Our Gemini New Moon taps directly into the order and symmetry found within Nature and in our relationship to the principles that bind us to life. I’m referring to the order found within the living intelligence of Nature and the natural laws that are operating within our world.
Our Scorpio Full Moon has a ray of hope for those who are able to feel the depth of what is real and authentic. We are at the halfway point in an important Lunar cycle that has brought each of us face to face with a world crisis. In the midst of disinformation and confusing narratives it can be challenging to know who and what to trust. Those with alternate viewpoints or perspectives are being increasingly censored. Not feeling heard or understood is a common emotion that runs deep within the collective consciousness right now.
Our Taurus New Moon is energizing and bringing to our conscious awareness what’s real and what’s not. Taurus is the first earth sign of the zodiac and can be thought of as the energy we use to confirm what’s useful and productive. This practicality of usefulness is what Taurus thinks of as “real.”
Our Libra Full Moon will certainly shed some much needed light on our current world events. Libra is an excellent type of energy for humanity right now. It’s especially useful for this Libra Full Moon energy to be shared with others during our coronavirus pandemic. What’s needed in the world is a mental re-adjustment so that we are able to see the extremes in contrast and begin to think independently from external authorities.
Our Aries New Moon comes at a time when we could all use a little good news. The world-wide coronavirus pandemic is in full swing and the average person is inundated with information. One world leader was quoted as saying that we need to flood the zone with the information that we want the public to hear about the pandemic. This experience of overload has made it difficult to know where to put our focus.
Our Pisces New Moon holds important keys to seeing the bigger picture of what is taking place in the world around us, so we can begin to understand our place in the larger scheme of things that are unfolding.
Our Leo Full Moon has a very expressive quality. The expressive nature of this Full Moon comes from the concentrated emotional energies of Leo. When released these Leo energies are consciously expressed through creative activity.
