I follow Yasmin Boland’s Moonology, which is a moon based astrological approach to the year. You can connect with her site HERE.
I use her yearly Moonology Journal. I also use the lunar phases for my Moonology readings and for our New Moon Blessings posts, and in my own spiritual practice.

The Lunar Phases and What they Mean for You
🌑 THE NEW MOON
What does it mean? – This is the time for setting new intentions and putting the past behind you. Set meaningful intentions.
🌒 THE WAXING CRESENT MOON
What does it mean? – Act on your intentions. It’s time to put the pedal to the metal!
🌓 THE FIRST QUARTER
What does it mean? – Challenges arise. This pause in the lunar cycle is a time when challenges, decisions, and actions come into play. Largely, this should be a time of reflection regarding your intentions and their obstacles. Recommit to your dreams.
🌔 THE GIBBOUS MOON
What does it mean? – This moon is full of emotions, dreams, and wishes—you will probably feel this way as well!
🌕 THE FULL MOON
What does it mean? – The most powerful lunar phase and many believe that this is the most committed spiritual phase. Emotions often run high as the sun and moon operate in different zodiac signs, but new opportunities and power surges are often available to those ready to accommodate them. You also find out whether your dreams are truly manifesting.
🌒 THE WANING GIBBOUS MOON (DISSEMINATING MOON)
What does it mean? – A period of evaluation as this is the ideal time to reflect on the events of the past days and to readjust intentions for the rest of the month. Start letting go of anything you need to release.
🌗 THE THIRD QUARTER MOON
What does it mean? – This is the time to let go of anything that no longer serves us. It’s the ideal time to clean, cleanse, and purge.
🌘 THE WANING MOON (BALSAMIC MOON)
What does it mean? – A soulful time. Make peace with life. We should practice compassion and self-care ahead of dusting ourselves off for the next cycle.
🌑 DARK MOON
What does it mean? When everything that’s gone before can now simply crumble away so that you can enter the New Moon phase with a fresh heart.
