Grow Strategically with the Waxing Moon Phases

The Waxing Moon Period, marked by its increasing illumination, is ripe for growth and transformation.

Understanding the Waxing Period

During the waxing period, the moon emerges from the shadows cast by the New Moon, gradually revealing its luminous face to the world. As the Earth begins to align with the Sun, the moon's crescent shape slowly becomes visible against the night sky's dark canvas, ushering in anticipation and burgeoning energy.

Embracing the Illumination

Watching light increase across the night sky can mimic the same feelings as the last commercial before a movie begins, the curtains opening as the first note is sung at a musical, or that plate of food finally being for you at a restaurant. Just as the moon grows in illumination towards its peak, the Full Moon, we can build our energy and momentum. This period is ideal for setting intentions, initiating new projects, and nurturing personal growth.

Steps to Attune to each Waxing Moon

The waxing period offers a wealth of opportunities. By aligning your actions with the natural rhythm of the waxing moon phases, you can tap into its potent energy to amplify your manifestations and accelerate your personal growth. This period encompasses three moon phases, which can be viewed as steps that can be taken to attune to this moon period:

Chart the Course Ahead

Picture the sky adorned with a delicate sliver of silver, hanging low to the right against the canvas of twilight. The Waxing Crescent Moon is like a whispered promise, softly illuminating the darkness, hinting at the potential ahead. During this phase, it's essential to get specific by placing a CROWN on your New Moon intentions:

  • Clarify Desires: Intensify your New Moon intentions with clarity by creating precise goals.

  • Radiate Metrics: Allow your desires to radiate by creating milestones to measure your progress.

  • Orbit Feasibility: Hopefully, the intentions you set during the New Moon were grand! Don’t shrink, but make sure your goals orbit feasible, realistic, and attainable realms.

  • Weave Harmony: Weave your goals with your intentions and values. They should exist in harmony to move you closer to a version of you that is operating in their divine purpose.

  • Navigate Nightfall: Nightfall is a daily occurrence that constrains what we plan to accomplish. Similarly, setting timelines to create tension and urgency can enhance our goals.

By CROWNing your intentions, you can utilize the minimal light of the moon to chart the course ahead.

Steer the Chariot Forward

Imagine the sky glowing half-moon lit from the right against a backdrop of darkness. With its majestic presence, the First Quarter Moon casts a steady glow upon the earth below, illuminating the path forward with full clarity. During this phase, it is important to go out to find the right GEMs to enhance your Waxing Crescent goals: 

  • Guided Choices: Let a sense of purpose and direction guide your actions. Knowing that the path forward is riddled with forks in the road, you must be acutely aware of your purpose in choosing the right direction. 

  • Energetic Engagement: Your goals require full engagement to keep the energy flowing toward success. 

  • Master Alchemy: Lean into the alchemy of transforming your dreams into tangible reality. To be a true alchemist, you must commit to mastering this science. 

By bejeweling your goals with GEMs, you can use the moon's growing light to steer your chariot forward.

Reassess and Press Onward

Vision the sky illuminated by a nearly perfect circle casting a gentle glow stretches far enough for us to see yesterday and tomorrow. The Waxing Gibbous moon, boisterous and enchanting, signals a period of abundant transformation. During this phase, you must prioritize assessing your First Quarter efforts to ensure you can look and feel REGAL:

  • Reflective Glow: Reflect deeply on your actions and plans. Glow from within, knowing that you began materializing what was once only a figment of your imagination.

  • Evolve Dreams: If you evolve what you thought possible, you will likely achieve more than expected. It’s time to allow your dreams to shatter your borders.

  • Gracefully Refine: This is different from scrutiny; instead, search for what you can refine and give yourself grace as you do so.

  • Align Actions: For consistency, align your goals and actions with your New Moon intentions. Then, align everything with your highest aspirations to become one with your soul’s purpose.

  • Luminating Progress: Progress steadily with your newfound clarity. This will give you the power to develop yourself further.

By moving with REGAL authority, you can utilize the booming light to reassess and press forward.
