In astronomy, a Waxing Crescent is seen around 3.5 days after the New Moon. This month’s Waxing Crescent moon will occur on Friday the 23rd of January. A Waxing Crescent can be identified by its letter ‘D’ shaped appearance in the sky where it is partly, but less than one-half, illuminated by direct sunlight. The illuminated fraction of the moon’s surface will appear to grow in the sky from this point until it is a fully lit Full Moon. The appearance of the first crescent in the sky represents the first signs of change and manifestation in our life. After planting new seeds for the future during the New Moon, The Waxing Crescent is a great time to embark upon whatever it is you want to manifest in your life. This is a time of regeneration so use it to lay the foundations of change. Anything you do to fortify and strengthen yourself will be significantly more effective when the moon is waxing. Initial plans and actions, starting small, are happening now so start gathering the resources and information you need to accomplish your goals. Relationships A Waxing Moon is favoured for the start of a new and long lasting romance. This is a great time to go on a first date as there is an abundance of positive energy around which encourages people to relax and be in good spirits. The Waxing Moon can also make people much more receptive, so your date is likely to be more focused and attentive. The Waxing Moon can also be used for its protective and healing energy in a current relationship. Whatever you want to attract to yourself and your path can be enhanced during this phase of the moon. Meditation During a Waxing Crescent, the body tends absorb both good and bad energy more easily so bear this in mind when you incorporate lunar energy into your meditation. This is a good time to clear out any influences and energy that prove to be unsatisfying and unfulfilling in your life – breathe in the energy of the Waxing Moon while you reflect on what you would like to receive. Career The Waxing Moon is the perfect time to start making big decisions about your career. If you’re looking for a change of vocation, this is believed to be the ideal time to arrange an interview as your prospects can be boosted throughout the Waxing phase of the moon. Creative inspirations are also thought to be higher at this time. Using the moon to guide you is simple.
