Have you ever wondered which phase of the Moon you have been born under?
Throughout our lives (whether we are deeply aware of it or not) the Moon casts a magical spell on our life in many different ways. A recurring pattern that moves in cycles, just like the Moon herself. There is a choice to work with the field and the energy to tap into life's fullest potential.
The Moon's journey
Every 29.5 days, the Moon wanders through eight different phases changing its beautiful face in the light of the sun. It is a constant metamorphosis that allows us to bear witness to the ever changing transformation life offers us in every moment without losing a single drop of its mesmerizing power and beauty. The Moon invites us to equally find our strength in the darkness and in the light. Her phases remind us that we are complete, too, in every cycle of our own life.
Throughout the history of our planet, the Moon has had a major influence on the evolution of the land, ocean and life. For billions of years the Moon has been stirring the oceans in its never ending orbit, controlling the movements of the ocean tides and everything else surrounded by it. Our bodies are made of 70% water and water is connected to our emotions – hence, it makes a lot of sense that our lives today are influenced by the Moon, by its position and proximity to the Earth.
We can find the influence in deeper chemical or physical reactions or in more spiritual connections – tugs and movements we indisputably feel in everyday life.
Your Moon sign
In astrology, your Moon sign can reveal detailed insight into how you process emotions and natural instincts. Likewise, the lunar phase that was in the sky at the moment of your entrance earthside may also play a part in your self-expression.
The Moon governs the realm of the subconscious emotions (and sometimes conscious ones, too) – the parts of ourselves that oftentimes can’t find expression, but are deeply felt on soul level. Your Moon sign, the placement the moon was in when you were born, dictates the needs of your inner self. And the changing face of this beautiful luminary affects us on a regular, more tangible basis, too.
As the Moon moves through her different phases, the energy shifts and is symbolic of different phases of our lives. The phase the Moon is in — in combination with the cycle you were born under — has a huge influence on your life, mind, mood and intuition and can indicate predominant life themes.
Why do I need to know my Moon phase?
The process of deliberately aligning our lives in accordance with the moon cycle can guide our daily decision-making. Since the Moon encourages us to look inward knowing your Moon phase can be especially important for inner work.
Your Moon phase day is your power day. This day is a potent moment for you, offering opportunities to start something new, to complete projects and if you are one for ritual, to create a sacred day in the lunar month as this is when the Sun and the Moon come into the same alignment the day you were born. Harness the moon’s power by setting intentions, or guiding goals and principles, during each lunar cycle.
Knowing your Moon phase invites you into a more intuitive relationship with life, it can add another layer of understanding, self-inquiry and awareness. It can enhance your personal journey and awaken a new understanding of your personal power by encouraging you to lean further into your strengths and come to see the traits and habits that aren’t serving you.
We created this beautiful work of art for you to find out what phase of the Moon you have been born under, to come out and play with the dark and the light knowing that you are whole and complete in any phase of your life, just like the Moon.
MY WHY – A LIFE LIVED UNDER THE SPELL OF THE MOON
Growing up in Southern Germany I was surrounded with age-old knowledge and traditions around the power and magic of the Moon. I was sensitised to meet life according to the phase the Moon would find herself in. From herb witches to natural practitioners, from farmers to spiritual leaders, my own Mother would introduce me to the magic of Moon energy, even cutting mine and my siblings’ hair only according to the Moon calendar. This knowledge is found in old pagan traditions that many cultures around the world follow with their own rituals and ways.
Fast forward to moving to Bali, I encountered the presence of the Moon in the everyday life of every Balinese person. Life on this island circles around the phases of the Moon, finding its amplification in particular ceremonies around the New Moon and the Full Moon. The island is brimming with energy as the Balinese dressed in traditional ceremonial attire make their ways to the temples on these particular Moon days – whether that is to honor the darkness and with that the beginnings of the New Moon or the eclectic high-voltage energy of the Full Moon. Here, everyone knows in which phase the Moon is currently at.
It is a deeply touching, humbling experience that keeps on reminding me of the inherent intelligence and interconnectivity of life, humanity and the universe – something so much bigger than what we are. It’s there to call upon whenever times get rough. Phases bring in a slowing down, an awareness that everything waxes and wanes, that there are highs and lows in life, times to be outward, to create and celebrate and times to go inward to rest, to restore and replenish at the same time.
We hope you deeply enjoy this offering as much as we do.
