How do the Moon Phases Affect Us? First Quarter Moon

1stqmoon_fb

The first quarter moon is when the moon appears half lit and occurs about a week after the new moon. It is considered the halfway point between the new moon and the full moon. In previous posts I have shared how the different moon phases affect us. This post will focus on how the first quarter moon affects us physically, mentally and emotionally.

How the Moon Phases Affect Us

The first quarter is considered the growth period of the moon cycle. The intentions that were set during the dark moon are beginning to take shape and during this time it is common to take on more than can be done. This is a great time to take classes or learn new skills that will help you to grow and accomplish your intentions and goals. It is also a great time to connect with God/Divine/Universe/Spirit to develop a deeper connection to ourselves and the world around us.

During the first quarter moon energy is more balanced than the other moon phases and energy increases during 10am and 2pm. It is common to feel emotionally balanced and more outgoing. Dreams tend to be more realistic and less symbolic during this phase and it is common to have prophetic dreams during this time. You may notice that you lose weight during this time and have an increased thirst and/or hunger.

Take it easy on yourself during this time, plans tend to develop easily, but we can often bite off more than we can chew so it is important to create a balance between taking action and overdoing it. This is a period for growth where we begin to see the fruits of the intentions we set during the new moon.

This phase is the most rational time for women. During this time logic is appealing and they are more interested in discussing issues. For men they tend to be more exocentric during this time. This is a great time for men to focus on their job or other mundanity because this period brings along the least emotion manifested.

How Do Moon Phases Affect Us? – New Moon

How Moon Phases Affect UsHave you ever stopped and wondered whether or not the moon phases affect us? After all it does affect the tides, the changing of the seasons and is important in stabilizing the axis of the earth’s rotation.

How Do Moon Phases Affect Us?

This new series has been on my mind for awhile now and I am very excited to share it with you! It will help shed some light on the moon’s phases and how it affects us physically and emotionally. I have been studying the moon phases for a couple of years now and love harnessing the power of the different phases for personal growth. This will be the first of an 8 series post going over a new phase of the moon and how these moon phases affect us.

New Moon Phase

When the sun and the moon are on the same side of earth the moon is in the “New Moon” phase. During this phase the moon is invisible because the side of the moon we are seeing is not being illuminated by the sun. The New Moon is also called the Seed Moon. It is a time of sprouting and new beginnings. The moon phases can affect our mind, body and emotions in the following ways:

  • Body– We tend to sleep less during the new moon phase and rise early. Our appetite tends to increase and we tend to experience spurts of energy.
  • Mind– This is a time we usually experience sudden insights and develop new ideas. It is a great time to be creative and participate in writing, painting or anything else that allows the mind to be inspired.
  • Emotions– During this time it is common to feel shy and experience sensitive feelings. It is a good time to stay away from crowds and to keep the focus on the ourselves.

The new moon brings about a time of calmness and balance, while also bringing energy and acceptance that anything can be accomplished. I use this time to set seeds of  intentions for the following moon cycle and love watching what manifests throughout the month. I enjoy sharing the knowledge I have learned with others so they can have a better understanding of how the moon phases affect us and how to take advantage of it’s power!
