I couldn’t resist feeling a vibe today. I felt weird, tired, a tad sad, and full of thought. I remembered I read somewhere that there will be a full moon on Monday [Oct. 29, 2012], so I started to do some online research on how the moon affects certain zodiac signs. While hopping from an article to a book to a website, I began to wonder which phase the moon was in at my time of birth. I used two different sites, and both tell me I was born during the Waxing Gibbous – the phase right before a full moon. What is even MORE interesting is…today, Oct. 27, 2012, the phase of the moon is also Waxing Gibbous. Apparently, I can feel “my moon phase” [as I like to call it]. Now, that is magical.
Check the phase of the moon on your birthday:
GIBBOUS NATAL PHASE 135 deg – 180 deg
If you were born during the Gibbous Moon Phase of the Lunar Cycle…
The Gibbous Phase is a transitional Phase, with the first three phases before it operating at a more instinctual, projective and experiential approach. During the Gibbous Phase, one is growing from instinctual, spontaneous movement, to conscious, deliberate action. This is why “Analysis” and “Growth” are key words describing this phase.
You have a continual urge to make your life something of “value”. Your constant analysis of how you are growing, where you are going and what you are doing helps you to create meaning in your life promoting a sense of purpose, thus, value. Self growth is important for the purpose of having an efficient operating system with which to be able to contribute to something of a more universal nature. Self revelation is one of the results of your constant questioning and evaluation of your own growth.
As a personality, analyzing yourself helps to define yourself. This allows the perfecting and refining of techniques for projecting your identity into the world.
When you went into the “why” stage of childhood you felt right at home and decided to stay there. You are likely to stand out in any group as you will need to question and understand the structure of any operation you are a part of.
Functioning efficiently is of great importance to you, perfecting what has been created. By understanding the structure of how something works, you are able to identify its working elements and can then implement them into new working patterns, promoting growth for yourself and for others. This is how you perform best. Once you have decided on some plan or course of action, it is hard for you to understand why everyone else doesn’t do the same.
Those born during the Gibbous Phase have an innate desire for perfection. Having sharp, analytical minds, they have a need to understand. Looking at a subject from all angles, they experience sheer joy when delving into the core of the matter. Bringing things to the essence of their being, the truth will be revealed. They live their lives in anxious expectation augmented by the breath of the coming revelation. Children born at this time will not be happy with the answers, they will want to know why and how the answer came about. Gibbous Moon people make good apprentices as their goal is to learn all they can and become as good as they can get.
