Well, here we are, in the Gibbous Moon Phase and the day Moon here is big and glorious! One can see the sunset in the west and the moon in the east at days end! Magical stuff really if you let yourself go there! I mean linger in the view of the Moon and Sun, contemplate it, and really enjoy@!
Well, my Lunar enthusiasm gets me going–pardon. Akhhemm, [clearing throat and getting serious now] so Gibbous Phase and in 3 days the Moon will be gloriously full.
The Waxing Gibbous Moon; the Separation from the Sun is now 135 – 180°
This is the last part of the waxing phase in the Lunar Cycle… after the Full (180°), the Moon begins to “wane” and the cycles are tagged with that word. In the last phase [waxing First Quarter] the words ‘forewarned is forearmed’ and that was about the old shells of old energy that litters the field of consciousness and about repudiating the past [patterns of consciousness]. Commitment has been growing and takes hold fully in this phase.
In this Gibbous phase there may be feelings of partnership or teamwork which predominate and are very strong. One may be very aware of more than one spirit guide present during psychic work; they’ve been there all along but now the Sun shines upon them within our consciousness. The psychic may feel a full-on commitment to their work. There may be a stronger than usual impulse to engage with the world in some type of service and commitment therein becomes solidified. There is that feeling that comes with this type of inner dialogue now: ‘Okay, now I know for sure I’m on the right path and I know what I’m doing and where I’m going or at least I know what I need to do now.’
We should all be feeling that to some extent as the Moon grows fuller over the next few days. This phase happens once a month–so you haven’t miss it if you and NOT reading his in the October 2014 timing. Save these posts and revisit the Moon phases again next month. The greatest thing about the Lunar cycle is that it’s monthly! Anyway…
There is a strong awareness now of needing others to do psychic work—both those in spirit world and in the human realms. A little self-analysis at this time goes a long way. The psychic work here may be adjusted and tweaked or the psychic may consider doing the work just a little bit differently than in the past.
Now we have ‘gone over the waterfall’ so-to-speak and we are independently and fully committed to what we intended during the New Moon several weeks ago [ on September 24th to be exact ]. Whether we were conscious of it or not, the New Moon energy set something into motion [positive or negative] and now we have it clearly before us in one way or another.
Co-operation is a key word for this lunar phase as well as co-creation. The desire underlying motivation toward this co-operation with others and they with us is fellowship–networking, team players and meaningful connections are expected now.
RED FLAG WISDOM: A red flag in this phase is that because we are so willing to compromise and create with others, those who like to take advantage for their own purposes can do so too easily — so discernment is also highly associated with this phase of the Moon. Not being to gullible or trusting or naive–because we have a natural feeling now to co-operate with others, if we don’t use discernment, we can become victims. Everyone wants to be loved and appreciated but there are those who will use that to their own advantage, so that’s one thing to know and be aware of at this time. Word to the wise as they say.
In this Waxing Gibbous Phase, the Sun and Moon are 4 or 5 signs apart. This months’ Gibbous Phase cycle began at 15° Aquarius. The same element–thus the cooperation. Aquarius is an Air sign and so is Libra where the Moon was when this cycle began–two air signs co-operate well.
So the Sun and Moon are at ease and in accord and the energy now can be easily harnessed.
Astrologer Dane Rudhyar says that people who are born with their Moon in this phase are eager to contribute meaningfully to society and they may devote their life to a cause. People born in this Virgo-type cycle (ruled by Mercury) have keen minds and a way of connecting the dots with ideas.
Verbal abilities will be strong now with the Sun/Moon relationship being in air signs.
The Gibbous phase allows for adjustments and preparation. Personally, I’ve felt that part most of all–the need for preparation. I’ve been getting paperwork together, making photocopies and doing that Virgo-type thing that is associated with that intention that I had back at the New Moon and that I’ve received hints will be manifesting. I got a call during the New Moon and was told what paperwork is needed and while the Moon was in this phase I’ve had a strong pull to get that done. Like I said, preparation and adjustments are a strong part of this Mercury ruled phase.
We can be doing self-analysis in this phase too–that’s part of the internal adjustment mentioned above and thus, humility is associated with this phase as well. And personally I must add the word “awe” to this phase from my own perspective. Gemini-like internalization leading to action.
There is an inner feeling of wanting to be prepared so that there is no rejection on any level in the next phase Feelings of inferiority need to be conquered in this phase and one will be helped in many ways to feel worthy in preparation for the upcoming Full Moon energy–that is if during the Waxing First Quarter phase one didn’t let doubt crumble the structure or get tripped up in the wasteland of old patterns.
In this phase the self talk must be similar to these types of words and phrases: “I deserve this. It is not too much to ask. I don’t listen to other people’s criticisms and have confidence and I do not defer to others. I am worthy–equal, deserving. I have good karma. I am prepared. Everything will go well. I remain humble yet deserving.”
I have not revealed on the blog what seeds I planted during the New Moon–not yet or many not ever. I am keeping that under my hat for now–at least for now.
See you at or after the Full Moon: 15° Aries! October 8th, 2014, Wednesday.
