Observe and empathize with your heightened emotions. Use this extra energy to work on tasks and activities that excite you. If you're responsive and open, fresh possibilities may arise as a result of your purpose setting earlier in the month. GIBBOUS IS DYING "Waning" denotes a decrease in the luminous area of the Moon. As the Moon wanes, so too does its influence. When the Moon is completely hidden beneath Earth's shadow, it goes into its last quarter. " - NASA
Gibbous means "grape-shaped" or "half full". As a lunar phase, gibbous describes the Moon when more than half illuminated by the Sun, with one end darker than the other. The word is derived from the Greek gibeos, which means "wine goblet" or "goblet". Wine was once kept in such vessels and the description "gibbous" came to mean "full of wine".
Lunar gibbous phases are most visible after midnight, when they can be seen rising over the eastern horizon before dawn and then moving west toward midday. Because of their location between half-full and full moons, these planets appear slightly smaller than their actual size. Even though Venus is often called the Morning Star because it rises before sunrise, it will always be found above the east horizon during morning twilight.
The term "waning gibbous" refers to how much less bright it is compared to full moon.
The Waning Gibbous Moon is a time for letting go and releasing. When working toward any goal in life, there is always something that must be sacrificed in order to achieve that objective. It's time to roll up your sleeves and go to work on some spiritual/self-growth projects. The Waning Gibbous Moon reminds us that nothing worthwhile was or will be gained without effort.
As darkness falls, look up at the night sky to see if there are any stars shining down on you. Remember that even though you can't see them, they are still there, watching over you. Take time out to appreciate their presence before going to sleep.
The waning gibbous moon (Grateful) According to science, following a full moon, the moon becomes less bright, fading toward the last quarter moon and, eventually, another new moon. The spiritual themes associated with this moon include appreciation, sharing, and passion. It is believed that this moon's energy can bring out feelings of gratitude in people. Gratitude is an important quality in spirituality because it helps us connect with our guides, saints, and other spirit beings.
The waning gibbous moon is closer to Earth, which makes it appear brighter than it actually is. As the moon moves away from Earth, the amount of sunlight that reaches it increases, so that when it enters its last quarter phase it is still fully lit. During this time you would see all parts of the moon, even if there are no clouds or darkness anywhere on earth visible from space.
In fact, astronauts aboard the Apollo 9 spacecraft saw our planet during their trip around the moon on September 7-9, 1969. They reported back to Earth that over 90% of Earth was covered by ocean. And what part of the ocean were they looking at? You guessed it: Antarctica!
You may have heard that the moon is made of green cheese. This isn't true but we will get to that in a minute...
First, let's talk about how the moon affects us.
When the moon's brightness begins to fade in its waning phase, you may sense a shift in your energy and emotions. Lunar energy, according to astrology, is quiet, mild, and associated with retiring inside, and the darker moon phases advise us not to act, but to listen to our instincts and stay within our bodies. In this case, the lunar influence will cause a need for sleep and quiet time, while at the same time feeling blue.
The moon affects everyone differently, but it's believed that when half or more of the moon is obscured from direct sunlight, it enters a new phase known as a dark moon. During these periods, the moon is invisible over most of the earth under clear skies. So if you're able to see stars during the day, you can witness darkness coming upon the moon.
These new phases last about three days each; on the third night, the moon becomes full again. But even when the moon is fully illuminated, it is still affected by the lunar cycle. For example, when the moon is in its waning stage, it will be drawing less solar energy than when it is waxing. This means that at some times of the month, the moon will be more likely to show a pale color.
Darker colors indicate higher concentrations of oxygen, so when the moon is pale, this means there is more oxygen present in the atmosphere. This allows humans to breathe without getting sick.
The new moon ushers in a period of peace and harmony, as well as vitality and acceptance that anything is possible. I utilize this time to plant seeds of intention for the next moon cycle, and I like seeing what unfolds over the month. The new moon also marks the start of a new phase of the zodiac, which means it's an excellent time to begin any project involving creativity or imagination.
The new moon has many magical properties, but perhaps the most important is that it brings out the best in us. It reminds us to be kind and loving, and it inspires hope and enthusiasm for the future. It can also be a signal that something terrible is about to happen; because there will be no old moon to lead people astray, we must be careful not to do anything foolish during this time.
If you're working on a creative project, such as writing a novel or creating a movie, you'll want to use this time to focus exclusively on your work. Avoid any distractions - not even social media - and give yourself permission to take as much time as you need. You'll have plenty of time to complete your project later in the week or month, so don't worry about failing at first try. Just keep going until you're done.
New moons have a powerful effect on people who are interested in astronomy.
