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?

Part of me feels like I am in the waxing moon phase.I'm still young, about 23..But I feel so old sometimes, like I have wasted a good sized chunk of my life. I lost my last job at the end of december, and for awhile was practically contemplating hara-kiri. But on the other hand, I'm giving serious thought to applying to our local art college, and eventually becoming self employed. Here's where the other part comes in- I guess I'm also a blue moon individual- I have always been the "weirdo", the "freak", the "Outcast. At least in the eyes of my sheeple classmates and peers. I never followed the crowd in appearance, thought, opinion, or deed. And I never saw the point of doing so. Being myself was so much easier, and alot more fun. Even now, I feel that self employment may ultimately be the only way to go- I am too fiercely independant to put up with the power tripping, looming over the shoulder antics of a great many bosses. I don't care who you are, or what your title is, you DO NOT have the right to insult my dignity or intelligence, and I am not one of those people who just meekly takes that sort of abuse. So needless to say, a career in the corporate world, with its inherant comformist attitudes is not ever going to work for me. As much as I love skyscrapers, I know that I was not made to run with the ranks of their tenants. Which leaves me wondering if I will ever be financially solvent and successful?

I would say that I'm at a Full Moon stage of my life. I have more friends than ever before, a wonderful boyfriend, and lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Life isn't perfect, but it suits me fine.
Moon phases are important to me when I consider how to word my spells. Say I'm working towards getting scholarship money. If I worked my spell during a waxing moon, I would work towards gaining prosperity. If I worked my spell during a waning moon, I would work towards banishing my money problems. I like to align my spells to what's going on the astrological while keeping the same intent.

I am definately in Blue Moon phase...All The Qualities listed for it, pertain to me...I am an Aquarius so that explains a lot...LOL... But only for this I say these things because I am definately not full of myself in no way...Just making an observation, and sharing with others some of my personalities... (Smiles Warmly) ....Blessed Be!!!

Because I am a brand new Witch I feel I am in a waxing moon phase. I feel myself becoming stronger and more developed each day. I'm not worried about what others will think, I'm ready to face the world with my new, Witchy, Self.

I feel that I am in a New Moon Phase in my life. Things in life are not great at the moment, and yet, thanks to being a Witch, my relationship with my husband is great and I feel immensely positive about life in general. I feel that things are quite secretive for me though, as I have only 1 year's experience of Wicca and so everything is quite low key - my husband and best friend know of my studies, but as yet, these are the only people I feel ready to confide my beliefs in.
So, for me, everything is changing, slowly but surely, hopefully towards a happy, knowledgable and peaceful future. But I have some growing to do to get there!

Hidden, secret, introverted. Yes, that's usually me. Mostly in contacts with people I don't know. But there is a Grand Weel of Nature and as it turns everyting changes. Hopefully the time of my own change will come.
The New Moon also represents my spiritual path, becouse I'm just a beginner, so now I mostly collect knowledge, learn and keep my thoughts for myself.
Maybe it is a good advice to use the phases of the Moon in rituals, becouse it alwats had a geat influence on life on Earth, from biological life to science. I suppose that a New Moon is quite good representative for this hidden power.

I feel like I've been stuck in this phase for awhile and hopefully I'll be waxing soon. I need more introspection to figure it out before I'll grow tho. I just want to stay hidden and quiet for awhile.

Currently i am into the Full Moon, Every time i sway to another area i keep coming back to the beauty and fullness of the full moon. I also find it easier to do stuff at night when ther is a full moon so maybee that helps me to keep with it.

The Moon Phase I am currently going into is the new moon. I am starting to go back into the "broom closet" with my faith because I have been too open about it lately.
