the moon and its phases can help us in our everyday life


The moon helps us to connect to our female energy, the loving, nurturing, caring energy.

I often ask Archangel Haniel for help in connecting with the Moon.

  • Do you Moon Bathe?
  • Do you observe and connect to the Moon in the sky?
  • Do you know or mark your diary with the dates and days of Full and New Moon?

These are just a few ways to connect to the Moon and be more aware of its cycle and how it can affect us.


The Cycle of the Moon

The Moon appears on the sky as:

New Moon

Waxing Moon

Full Moon

Waning Moon


The Cycle of the Moon goes from New Moon to waxing moon (half-moon growing) to Full Moon, Waning Moon (half-moon descending) to New Moon again.

So now let’s look deeper into each phase of the moon and how it correlates with our bodies and energies:


New Moon

Best time to:

  • start new things
  • Plant new seeds
  • Set intentions
  • Be and go within
  • Listen to your intuition

Archetype: Wise Woman

Waxing Moon

Full Moon

Best time to:

  • harvest
  • Complete things
  • Be out there

Archetype: Mother

Waning Moon

Best time to:

  • let go
  • Release
  • Go within
  • Embrace the wild within you

Women’s Cycle Equivalent: Luteal phase (PMS)


You see we go through each season and archetype and element during a Moon Cycle.

We have mini seasons within each Moon cycle, no matter what season we have in nature.

Time to go within and be quiet is essential every month, not only in winter.

With the list above, explore connecting to the different archetypes and elements as you go through the month, have fun and notice what is going on within yourself during each part of the cycle.

It is ok when your menstrual cycle is not aligned with the Moon, I included the female cycle to explain how we could be feeling during this moon phase.
