Moonology: The Eight Magical Phases of the Moon

Moonology: The Eight Magical Phases of the Moon

Yasmin Boland developed an easy method for working with the mystical powers of the moon, which according to ancient wisdom affects all life on Earth. She called it Moonology. Here you’ll find the eight magical phases of the moon explained, according to the manifestation method of Moonology. 

1. New moon

State your intention and plant the seeds of your dreams for the future. Meditate on your dreams from day 1 through half of day 3 after the waning moon phase following the third quarter.

Key words: a clean slate, potential, dreams.

2. Waxing Crescent

This is the time when you give your dreams a chance to blossom and flourish. You are not yet able to see what you’re going to manifest. Keep thinking about what you want, from the second half of day 3 to day 7 after the new moon.

Key words: courage, progress, faith.

3. First Quarter Moon

At this moment it’s important to make time to feel your desires again and to visualise them. This is also the time when a crisis or problem can occur. Don’t be distracted, stick to your dream, from day 7 through the first half of day 10 after the new moon.

Key words: challenge, confidence, commitment.

4. Waxing Gibbous

Stay on course and don’t give up. Don’t let your ego or your fears spoil your plans. From the second half of day 10 to day 15 after the new moon.

Key words: set to work, hone, adjust.

5. Full moon

This is the make-or-break phase. If one of your wishes is going to manifest itself, it will be now. You can also get a strong indication that you’re on the right track. Some wishes will take a long time. This phase lasts from day 15 through the first half of day 18 after the new moon.

Key words: result, forgiveness, gratitude.

6. Disseminating moon (Waning Gibbous)

B-r-e-a-t-h-e… If things didn’t work out for you in the previous phase, then what? Relax. You will find that the more you work in accordance with the lunar phases, the more easily life will flow. From three and a half to seven days after the full moon.

Key words: cycle, relax, accept, regroup.

7. Third Quarter Moon

Look back and see how far you’ve come. Now is the time to work out what you want to take with you into the new moon cycle that’s coming soon, and what you want to leave behind. From seven to ten and a half days after the full moon.

Key words: re-evaluate, balance, trust.

8. Waning Crescent (Balsamic Moon)

The moon cycle comes to an end and it’s time to let things go. One of the best ways to work with this cycle is to chant the Sanskrit words Om Namo Narayani. It means ‘I surrender to the Divine’. The Divine has a plan for us all, and we are the Divine made manifest! So surrender now and rest, ten and a half days after the full moon to the new moon, in preparation for the next cycle.

Key words: healing, soothing, surrender.
