What Moon Phase Are You In?
Consider the phases of the moon: Waxing (strengthening, enlarging, increasing), Full (powerful, energetic, extroverted, public), Waning (banishing, forgetting, diminishing, retreating), New (hidden, secret, introverted) and Once in A Blue (unexpected, outside the norm, quirky, special).
Which such ‘phase’ is your life, emotional state or spiritual growth in right now?
Do you consider and/or utilize the moon phases in your spell work or rituals? How so?

Having practiced Wicca for fourteen years, there has been a spiritual graduation of sorts as I have redefined my practices while still remaining true to the teachings I was raised with. Rather than limiting myself to just one particular god/dess, I have found that as I grow and change, so do the gods that I need to work with. Thus, recently, I opened myself up to the Divine, as It chooses to reveal itself to me.
I liken the divine to a tree. The trunk is the Divine, nameless, genderless, then the branches are the extensions of the Divine, each a god or goddess, separate, yet a part of the whole.

Waning to New moon. Definitely going through a down period. No girls around here and the serious homework hammers just dropped on me at college.

...is what I think I am because I am strengthening my faith by learning as much about it and myself as I can. Once I do start doing ritual on a regular basis, I do plan to attune it with the phases of the moon. Right now, however, my favorite full moon activity is to take a moonbath. It does something so primal to me that I cannot even attempt to explain it here. It makes me feel very refreshed and alive and connects me to the universe and its workings. Needless to say, I have been very deprived of that this winter and am hankering badly for spring so I can resume this luscious activity! :) ) O (

Definitely in the new moon phase. My partner and I have just started classes at University, heading forward together on new paths. So far it had been very interesting. We both had some adjustments to make as we were not used to spending so much time together =) . Our daughter thinks it's really neat that her mom and dad are going to school, too and she invents homework to do so that she can sit at the table with us and bond. We are growing as a family and it is wonderful. It has been a long time since I have been at this place in my head. Nothing has been so right.

I am a Waning, New Moon & a Blue Moon. Basically I am an Eclipse. Something different I suppose. Yes, I do work with the moon phases while casting.

I'm a new moon phase. I am just starting out and do most of my practices in secret.

Can you be in more than one moon phase at the same time? I am growing toward the future and gaining in personal strength, knowlege & power, but I am doing it by banishing the past and forgiving & forgetting old hurts. So I guess that means that I am somewhere between waning and waxing, but I am not going thru new to get there (not really anyway. I am talking to a lot of people about what I am doing and they are helping me to get there ... so there are really no secrets and I am not being introverted about it)
Sigh, guess that makes me a blue moon

After reading all of the above, which moon phase means what. I had a very hard time trying to figure out which one best suits me. After thinking a wee bit, The Waxing Moon would be my base. Through daily life and things I have lived through I go stronger. However, I hold many qualities of my life in the other phases. There are days in the month were I am very energetic and want to be out in public, than there are days where I would rather shut the door, pull the blinds and be alone. And of course those days where my kids think I am out of my loony mind, but they still love me because their friends tell them they wish they had a cool Mom like me . Of course most of these moods follow with the actual Moon Phases, which I am sure many people's moods do.
Yes, I do incorporate the moon phases in any spell work I do. The intention of the spell, I wait till the moon phase is good for that spellcrafting.

I think that right now I am between the Waning and new moon. I am trying to banish some negativity, and release some old freindships and betrayals. I also am being very secretive and trying to discover the mysteries of my life :)

I am definitely in the Waxing phase of my life. Growing, strengthening, increasing knowledge. As for the emotional aspect, I am either Waxing/Waning - there are ups and downs in my life where I feel like a waning moon with diminishing energy.
Oddly enough, I do get significant dreams when the moon is waxing, especially it's almost full. And I do celebrate the Full Moon as well, either by solitary ritual or group meet. The best rituals I have experienced are under a Full Moon where the energy soars and I dance under Her glow to celebrate. Not to mention howling. ;)
