When it comes to the moon almanac two phases of action are reflected by the growing and diminishing moon. These are cycles that bookend the New and Full Moons called waning and waxing cycles.
New Moon event meaning:
The new moon is the beginning of the lunar cycle when the moon is in line with the sun and the earth. The moon is not visible during this alignment leaving us with a black sky. This moon event represents a new beginning and rejuvenation.
Traditionally this time is known as the best time for making changes for personal growth including beauty, health, skills and for adding new relationships or finding new employment.

Waxing Moon Cycle meaning:
The waxing moon is the time between the new moon and the full moon. Every night after the new moon it gets a little larger. This is a time for action to meet ones needs for creativity and aspirations. Taking actions can increase ones courage and motivation.
Full Moon event meaning:
The Moon is at its most powerful at this time. Even though the full moon only truly occurs for one night out of the entire lunar cycle you can harness the energy of the full moon for about 2 days before or after the night the moon is truly full.
Traditionally the full moon has been a time for making concrete decisions and taking action. It reflects completion and makes a statement, “it is done.” It is also a time of passion, romance, love and fertility.

Waning Moon cycle meaning:
This is when the moon begins to get smaller in the sky. This reflects a time to reduce clutter and remove old habits like smoking, overeating, other addictions and bad relationships.

Thank you for this gift, Renee
I can imagine ways to use it to help me stay focused on my healing. There are so many parts to it (exercise, foods and supplements, braces, and other supports, mental attitude, etc) that I find it hard to remember it all every day. I think your method will really help. Judy
