Did you know that being born during a specific moon phase can illustrate the way in which your life is expressed? The moon is the ruler of feminine energy, our emotions, intuition, creativity, and unique self-expression. So when the moon appears differently in the sky, it changes the way our creativity is expressed, and in turn, it affects the way we process life.
It’s very simple to find the moon phase on the day you were born. You can just type in “Moon phase on (date)” into Google. For example, I was born on June 7, 1993.
As you can see, I was born on a Waning Gibbous Moon. Just two days before I was born, the moon was full. Then, on my birthday, it was beginning its descent back into the darkness of a New Moon.
If we think about the moon like a journey up a mountain, the Waxing Moon would be the strenuous hike up, the Full Moon would be the exciting view from the top, and the Waning Moon phase would be your hike down. As you can imagine, these all carry very different types of energies that represent part of your life journey in a symbolic way.
Check the info below for your moon phase to understand how your creative energy is meant to be expressed in this life.
If we’re comparing the moon phases to a hike, the New Moon is the moment in the car before the hike. We are in rest mode but in full anticipation of the event that is about to transpire. This is the time when we visualize what is about to come and infuse the future with our intention right now.
People born under this phase are excited about all the exciting possibilities that lie ahead in their life and feel optimistic and ready to take on the world. They have a goal in mind!
Waxing Crescent Moon
The Waxing Crescent Moon is like that moment in time right before we begin a hike, where we are checking all of our gear to make sure we’re ready and thinking about the journey that lies ahead. Is our water full? Do I have toilet paper? How long is the hike and do we have a map in case we lose cell service?
People born under this moon are excellent researchers, planners, and strategizers. They know what lies ahead and they love to take the provisions necessary to ensure they are totally prepared.
First Quarter Moon
The first quarter moon is a time when we are supposed to take action on our goals. It’s like choosing the trail we are about to hike and taking our first few steps, committing to it.
People born under this phase will feel their best and most creative when they commit by taking action towards their goals. Burn the ships; there’s no turning back now!
Waxing Gibbous Moon
The Waxing Gibbous Moon is the most strenuous part of a hike where it takes all of our effort and concentration to keep moving towards the peak!
People born under this phase are meant to live their creative expression through working hard towards their goal. This is the phase associated with heightened efforts and enthusiasm!
The Full Moon only occurs for one day, and if you imagine a hike, it’s that moment where you’ve made it to the top of the mountain and you can finally look out at the view. You don’t spend the majority of your time here, but it’s a big part of the reason why you ventured on this hike in the first place. So, you stop to smell the roses and process everything it took to get you there.
People born under this phase like to show the world all the work they’ve been doing behind the scenes. Their life is meant to be a show in some respect. They’re at the very top of the mountain and the moon is completely lit, making their work visible.
Waning Gibbous Moon
The Waning Gibbous Moon can be compared to our descent down a mountain. You already saw the view, and you’ve gained a lot of wisdom from all the beauty you found on top. Now, you’re here to spread your message to others and tell them of the incredible views that await them.
People born under this phase are meant to disseminate their knowledge. They’ve gained so much wisdom that it’s time to share it with the world!
Last Quarter Moon
The Last Quarter Moon is like the very end of a hike when you are packing up all your things, tired and ready to go home. You still need to make sure you have enough gas in the car, the GPS on and your bags all packed to go home. So, it’s important to close this task with the same care you came into it.
People born under this moon phase excel at wrapping things up and tieing them up with a bow. You will feel your most creative putting the finishing touches on your projects and getting pumped to send them off into the world.
Waning Crescent Moon
The Waning Crescent is symbolic of our journey home from a long day hiking. We’re in the car on the way home, thinking back on everything that just happened, how we felt and what we would want to do differently next time.
People born under this moon phase have their creative energy turned towards reflection, rumination and thinking about the past. They do their best when allowing themselves to process their emotions and let go of what is no longer serving them.
The Dark Moon is symbolic of the rest we have after a very long hike. We are laying in bed, drained and not quite ready to get up for our next adventure. We need rejuvenation before we can begin again.
People born under this moon phase express their creative side best when they have time alone to relax and dream about future possibilities without actually setting any ideas in stone. This is more of a dreamy state where the world is their oyster.
