We’re getting woo-woo with the moon in today’s episode! This is our most requested topic so far and we're excited to get into it. Kaileen reviews the different moon phases and Jordan shares her favorite moon rituals. We give lots of resources and some basic tips if you're just learning how to work with the moon.
INSIDE THE EPISODE
There are 8 phases to the moon, with roughly 28 days for a full cycle which aligns with the female menstrual cycle.
The energy of the phases alternate between a yang/action energy and a yin/restful energy. The moon cycle represents nature’s ebb and flow and is also mirrored by the seasons.
New Moon (yang): when the moon is dark in the sky, the beginning of the cycle, set intentions, menstrual, winter
Crescent Moon (yin): some light in sky, relax into your intention
First Quarter Moon (yang): half-way illuminated, take action to support intention, follicular, spring
Gibbous Moon (yin): now waxing to full, but not yet, trust your intention is coming into form
Full Moon (yang): illumination, emotional climax, move ahead with intention, release, ovulation, summer
Disseminating Moon (yin): starting to fade again, feel gratitude about intention coming into form
Third Quarter Moon (yang): half-way illuminated again, receiving intention & give back from abundance, luteal, fall
Balsamic Moon (yin): moon is fading to dark, reflect with thanks, rest, restore
