Cycle of the Moon and Sun   Leave a comment

The Sun and Moon both have cycles, from new-moon – half-moon – full-moon – half-moon, spring, summer, autumn and winter. The moon’s cycle is monthly and the sun is yearly but both have always played an important part in our lives.  When we talk about the sun being in Aries or Taurus what we are actually doing is describing its position in the cycle at birth.  If you know your moon sign all you need to do to find its phase is flick through the following posts and scroll down until you reach your Sun/ moon sign combination.

The cycles of both the sun and the moon have a lot in common:

Sun 0 Aries, spring equinox point of balance between night and day before the Sun grows in strength in the Northern hemisphere.

Waxing half-moon point of equal balance between the hidden and visible sides of the moon before the moon grows into full luminosity.

Sun 0 Cancer, Summer solstice when the Sun is at its height of power in the Northern hemisphere.

Full moon point when the moon is at its full visible power.

Sun 0 Libra, equinox point of balance between night and day before the Sun grows weaker in the Northern hemisphere.

Waning half-moon, point of balance between the visible and invisible sides of the moon before the moon wanes completely in strength.

These points are dynamic for both the sun and the moon they mark stages of which the moon or sun is continuously working towards.  The position of the sun and moon in their cycle at birth shows where we were on that path and where both our sun and moon want to develop to.  Sun in Gemini wants to reach the full potential of the summer solstice sun, they feel that energy and drive from birth. The waxing gibbous moon wants to reach the potential of the full-moon.  Both our sun and moon want to develop to the next stage it is a constant driving force.

The following posts contain references to the need for attention, this does not mean attention seeking behaviour.  If you are lost in a strange town and need directions you need the attention of a passer-by for them to give directions.  If you have been in a major road accident you need the attention of the emergency services.  We all need attention; people to notice we exist, people to respond to our questions, people to stimulate our imagination through conversation.
