The Moon | And It's Phases


Moon Phases


The Dark Moon is a time of Retreat & Introspection. Review the The Last Quarter Moon WeRK you did, likely in the last week. That was powerful release WeRK & The Dark Moon is a time to take a big, juicy rest so you can have the energy to plant those New Moon intention seeds in the compost you made from your Last Quarter Moon Releases. The Dark Moon is the Death part of the Death/Rebirth Cycle. It is the big sleep, the quiet & the underneath. This is  time to replace Magic & Ritualizing with Rest; this is a Radical Act in a capitalist society. It can be a scary, uncomfortable time but this is when the Compost Magic is most potent. Recharge YOU, boo.


The New Moon is the spark of light that appears after the Dark Moon Phase. This is a time of Rebirth & Renewal. We are reborn again after our death during The Dark Moon. This is a time to ready the SELF for action BUT before we act we must consider our intentions & check for internal assurance that those intentions are aligned with our higher SELF & the care of the collective too. We look back at the previous Moon Cycle & after so much reflecting & releasing, healing & growing, we know we are ready for a new path or project. Like waking from a blissful sleep, the New Moon flickers & beams moonlight back into our eyes reminding us that we are alive. We have WeRK to do &  seeds to plant.


The First Quarter Moon is a time of 

initiation & activation. It‘s go time on 

those intentions MoonBeams! We have discerned which path is the correct one & which projects are ready to be sprouted. We‘ve also accepted the paths & projects that aren‘t ready to sprout just yet. The First Quarter Moon reminds us that tension & struggle is a gift; we don‘t need to force things that aren‘t aligned. This is an act of rebellion in a capitalist culture. Waiting is Magical. During a First Quarter Moon, we can pull what we learned during The New Moon towards us & initiate the first spark of growth our seeds need to spout. It is important to review your New Moon Ritual as you prepare this First Quarter Moon Ritual. This illuminates where you have any blocks or bindings around the next steps. Be brave during this process!


The Full Moon is about reflection, rejoicing, & revelation. This Lunation is about seeing the true truths so we can rejoice in their gifts & opportunities even if they fucking suck. It’s time to honestly consider the shit we find in this part of the Moon Cycle. Leaning into EVERY emotion as a Magical Gift & Tool is disruptive to both capitalism & patriarchy. These systems thrive off our fear & repressed emotions. The Full Moon calls us to howl in order to remind us that we are worthy of all of our feels. There’s nowhere for our ShadowWeRK to hide during a Full Moon. Don‘t hide! Let your freak flag fly & be proud of wherever you are in the 

process. Celebrate every step!


The Last Quarter Moon is a time of Surrender & Release. The Full Moon WeRK you just did was powerful & the Last Quarter Moon is a time to take action on releasing the blocks that you discovered need to GTFO during the Full Moon. It’s okay if you check back & find that not everything is ready to be released. Trust your instincts. This Moon invites you to prepare the Compost that will brew into fuel during the Dark Moon & feed the Seeds of your Intentions in the New Moon. This Moon can bring us into grief & the fears we hold around loss or lack can rise up to the surface. This is an amazing time to challenge your coping skills & to build new relationships with how you let old, dead things transform into the soil for your new, exciting things.
