The phases of the Moon correspond to the different stages of growth of living beings. Years ago, farmers learned to plant and harvest their crops according to the lunar calendar. They adapted their work to these cycles to ensure their crops grew well. It is also possible to enjoy the benefits of the Moon on a personal level.
The 4 Moon phases described:
1) New Moon: This phase corresponds with beginnings
During the New Moon, the Sun and the Moon merge and form a conjunction in the sky. Use this phase to open yourself up to new ideas and broaden your personal and professional horizons!
If you look back on past events, you will find that all your successful deals started during a New Moon. This period is rich in dreams of love and glory that are worth following. Be attentive to your dreams at this particular time, because they may well guide you.
2) First quarter: Hard work is required to achieve goals
The Moon forms a 90° angle or a square with the Sun. The Moon looks very bright during this phase. The square formed by the Moon and the Sun stirs up some energies of resistance.
On a practical level, this phase can encourage you to reorganize yourself and getting rid of old habits. It's a time for refining your strategy...

3) Full Moon: Your hard work from the New Moon will pay off
The Sun and the Moon are opposite each other or at 180° apart. The Moon also reflects all the light of the Sun.
As a rule, emotions are heightened during the Full Moon. Avoid making rash decisions during this phase because your emotions will get the best of you. Many people resign from their positions or decide to break up during this cycle.
On a spiritual level, you must look within yourself and know where you stand. This is a time for revelations, intuition and premonitory dreams.

4) Third quarter or Waning moon: Reap the rewards
At this time in the sky, the Moon is darker and less visible. The Moon forms a 90° or square angle with the Sun again, but this phase is different from the first quarter.
In the third quarter, you logically enter a calmer period. You will become more aware of the revelations made during the Full Moon. The last quarter is the time when you have to accept certain situations and to forgive others. You are now ready to give up conflicts that no longer exist and make peace.
