New Moon in Leo
August 18

The New Moon is always the beginning of the New Phase. We state our intentions at this time and choose the path we want to take going forward.

Crescent Phase

July 23-27

August 22

At the Crescent Moon, we may struggle as we learn to trust our instincts.

First Quarter Phase

July 27-30

This is the phase for making adjustments to our original plan and taking action.

Gibbous Phase

July 30 –
August 3

We study and make our last preparations before the Moon reaches total fullness.

Full Phase

August 3-7

Full Sturgeon Moon
11° Aquarius
August 3
Full at 11:59 am ET

Also known as:
Fruit Moon
Lightening Moon
Women’s Moon

Everything is illuminated and our progress is fully visible at the Full Moon. The moment that the Moon is 100% full marks the beginning of the Full Phase.

Disseminating Phase

July 1-4/5

Disseminate means “to scatter.” During this phase, we share what we have learned with others.

Last Quarter Phase

August 11-15

This is a time for reaffirming our intentions and our original vision for this lunar cycle.

Balsamic Phase

August 15-18

This is a time of release as we begin preparations for the New Moon and the next lunar cycle. This time is suited to meditation on our intentions, but do not take action until the New Moon.

Old Moon

August 17

The Old Moon isn’t one of the official eight Moon phases, but refers to the Moon a night or two before it is New. This is the prime time for meditating on your New Moon intentions or to set aside some time to completely relax as the lunar cycle draws to a close.
