The Moon exerts, throughout its cycle, a force on people’s physical and mental energy, so it is possible to adjust our rhythm of life with each lunar phase. In the same way that humanity has tuned the lunar cycles to its primary activities, for example, the agricultural seasons, taking advantage of its effects on ourselves will have great benefits, astrologers say.
The complete cycle of the Moon lasts 28.5 days, time it takes to complete its orbit around the Earth.

What should be done in each lunar phase?

The energy we have put into our intentions reaches its peak. The goals begin to bear fruit. It’s the exact time to get going, impress, party and release. Astrologically, the Moon and the Sun are in opposite signs, so they are also periods of emotional sensitivity.
The moon begins to fade in the sky and that is when we reap the fruits of our labor. For this reason, it is time to analyze, correct the course if we went wrong, rest, share ideas and seek inspiration.
