What is the Full Moon?

The Full Moon is the lunar phase in which the face of the Moon appears fully illuminated. When the Moon and the Sun are on opposite sides of the Earth, we view the Moon as being full, hence why it's known as the Full Moon. The side facing Earth is completely lit up by the Sun and appears as a disk. The Full Moon occurs once roughly every month as shown in our Lunar calendar. 

What is a New Moon?

The New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are on the same side of the Earth. During a New Moon, the face of the Moon that we see from Earth is not lit up by sunlight. From Earth we are unable to see the New Moon in the sky, unless there’s a solar eclipse, with the Moon positioned directly in front of the Sun.

Waxing crescent meaning

Waxing crescent Moon occurs between the lunar phases of the New Moon and the Full Moon. During this waxing lunar phase the Moon appears as a crescent meaning it’s less than half illuminated. Following this lunar phase, the Moon then waxes and grows bigger into what we know as a half-moon. The first half Moon following the New Moon is called the first quarter because the Moon is a quarter of the way though the lunar cycle phases.

Waning gibbous lunar phase

The waning gibbous Moon cycle appears after a Full Moon when the Moon is completely illuminated. The term waning means the Moon is getting smaller and gibbous refers to the shape of the lunar body. The waning gibbous Moon can be identified due to its semicircle shape.

How does the Moon affect us?

Moon phases have an effect on the oceans too, and the tides actually change in function with the Full Moon. Humans are 80% composed of water, which explains why the Moon has such strong effects on our bodies. Track the Full Moon dates in our Moon calendar and never miss another lunar event again.

What causes the phases of the Moon?

The Moon has phases due to the fact that it orbits Earth, which in turn causes the part we see illuminated to change.  When the Moon travels around the Sun, it's also lit up from varying angles by the Sun causing different lunar phases. The Moon orbits the Earth in 27.3 days and each Lunar phase cycle is 29.5 days. Moon phases including the New Moon, First Quarter, Full Moon and Last Quarter are produced once a month. 

What is a Blue Moon?

A Blue Moon is a natural phenomenon in which 2 Full Moons appear in the same calendar month and have a blue appearance due to the dust and smoke particles in the atmosphere! Blue Moons are fairly rare, but are great to see.

What is the link between the Moon and Astrology?

Medium, Clairvoyants and Astrologers have relied on the Moon's position for hundreds of years to guide them in their predictions. The Moon's position at your time of birth reveals lots of priceless information about your personality. To find out more about the connection between the Moon and Astrology, check out your daily horoscope.

Can there be a month without a Full Moon?

The only month that could potentially not have a Full Moon is February and if this occurs, it will be in a leap-year when February only has 28 days. February is the shortest lunar month, so a Full Moon isn't guaranteed.
