Using the Moon’s Phases to Determine Your Soul’s Journey
The moon is an extremely helpful celestial body. It rules your emotions, you can meditate to it, and you can even use its light to charge your psychic tools. However, the moon, and specifically its phases, have plenty more to teach you about yourself and your soul. Howso? By determining what phase the moon was at when you were born.
Tracking Your Soul’s Evolution
Many past life experts agree that souls tend to evolve in cycles, spending a certain number of lifetimes mastering a specific evolutionary goal, and developing qualities or gifts which will then be used in later cycles.
The key to deciphering where you are in your soul’s journey is in the moon’s phase at your birth, which shows in your birth chart as the “aspect” between your sun and moon. If you don’t already have your birth chart, you can get a free copy of it by joining our Karma Rewards Program.
Just as your moon sign rules your emotions and how you react to the world, the moon phase you were born under also has a lot of sway over you. It can influence how you express yourself and indicate the major life themes you’re bound to come across in this life. Knowing this can be crucial for your soul’s evolutionary journey.
Calculating Your Natal Moon Phase
If you know your sun and moon sign, then it’s not impossible to calculate the moon phase you were born under. The sun and moon are always conjunct in the same sign on a New Moon, and when the moon is full, it is always in the sign opposite the sign the sun currently resides in.
To calculate your moon phase, determine how many signs away your moon sign is away from your sun sign, designating your sun sign as “one.” From there, you can roughly determine the phase the moon was in, with signs between new and full being in the waxing phase, and signs between the full and the waning phase. However, if you would like to be absolutely sure, you can find several moon phase calculators online, or you can call one of our expert Astrology Psychics to find out.
The Moon Phases and Your Soul’s Growth
Many philosophies behind past lives believe that the reason you are reborn is so that you can learn and master certain lessons about life. Once you have mastered one, which can take several lifetimes, your soul grows, and you move onto the next stage. The moon phase you were born under holds the secret to where your soul happens to be in the great cosmic journey of lessons and mastery. Here are the eight natal moon placements, and what they mean for your soul’s growth.
New Moon (Dark Moon) Natal Phase
Your soul is in the Instigator Phase. Because you’re at the beginning of a cycle, you are gifted with the ability to respond brilliantly and unpredictably to every new situation. People find your leadership irresistible. You’re learning as you go, building a totally new paradigm or foundation from successes and failures.
Waxing Crescent (Crescent Moon) Natal Phase
Your soul is in the Escapee Phase. Your task is to free yourself from the patterns of your family or cultural background. Not everyone escapes the first lifetime around, partly because the drive to separate begins unconsciously, and partly because you need to develop the necessary spiritual muscle as part of your growth.
First Quarter Moon Natal Phase
Your soul is in the Activist Phase. Plunging ahead where angels fear to tread, in this phase you clear away what you know in your gut is old and obsolete so the future has room to grow. Having already freed yourself from family and cultural assumptions, this time you are clearing the way for others to follow.
Waxing Gibbous Natal Phase
Your soul is in the Systems Analyst Phase. In this phase it’s all in the details! In this phase You continually ask why, how, and what can make things better or more efficient. You create techniques rather than concepts, and you can be a rabid perfectionist until you learn that the cookie cutter approach doesn’t always cut it.
Full Moon Natal Phase
Your soul is in the Seeker Phase. This time you’re either the fool or the guru, and sometimes you’re both. After several cycles spent mastering the how’s and why’s of society, this time you’re learning that what you do isn’t nearly as important as what it means. What you look like and what others think of you have no meaning once you become what you’re seeking.
Waning Gibbous (Disseminating Moon) Natal Phase
Your soul is in the Believer Phase. In this phase you teach what you’ve become. Everything you’ve learned and absorbed through your soul’s experiences as Instigator, Escapee, Activist, Systems Analyst, and Seeker provide fuel for the ideals and visions that motivate you so strongly. If you’re in the phase where everything’s really easy, don’t sleep through it!
Third/Last Quarter Moon Natal Phase
Your soul is in the Changer Phase. A part of you understands that you’re nearing the completion of this journey. You know in your bones that change equals renewal, and that this is the key to success for this phase. On the surface you seem to be like everyone else, until one morning you wake up and announce that you’re leaving and starting over. And you may do this more than once!
Waning Moon (Balsamic Moon) Natal Phase
Your soul is in the Prophet Phase. You’re at the end of this cycle, and clearing Karma fast! You can see the future bleeding through, both for individuals and for society, and you aren’t afraid to share what you see. Many of your relationships are very intense, but short lived.
There’s always a warm feeling inside when you see that you’re making progress on something. And being able to see that your soul is evolving and learning the lessons that the Universe has laid out is a massive win. Everyone is on a journey. Fortunately, the moon is there to light your path, no matter what phase you begin with.
