Moon Cycle Alignment

Updated: Jun 22

“The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished." - Deng Ming-Dao, Everyday Tao: Living with Balance and Harmony

Humans have looked to the moon and its cycles for guidance for thousands of years. There are four major moon phases in each lunar cycle, and you can use these phases as a guide and as a means to practice self-care.

The Sun and Moon are aligned at the New Moon, with the Sun and Earth on opposing sides of the Moon. The term "New Moon" refers to the beginning of the lunar month. This is a time of fresh starts. Use this phase to establish new objectives and goals. This is an excellent time to start a new project.
