WAXING GIBBOUS \\ THE LAST STRETCH
Keywords: development, ideas and plans, fine tuning, patience and preparation
The waxing gibbous moon is the final stop before the full moon. The word Gibbous comes from the Greek word “gibbosus” meaning hump or bulge. This moon isn’t quite full but isn’t far off either. This is your last chance to get off the train or to make any adjustments before seeing your goal through. You’ve gotten a sense of what is needed in order to make your dreams come to life and at this point, you've walked away with something no matter the actual outcome. You’ve grown in one way or another. This phase of the moon can be an anxious time as well. You are close to achieving your goal and are desperately looking for a way to fit into society. For you and your goal to be seen by the masses. You’re ready to share your progress with the world but now is not yet the time. That belongs to the full moon and waning gibbous. At this time, you need to make any accommodations needed to ensure the completion of your goal.
The shadow aspect is when you aren’t seeing your goal come to life as you've expected. Many things can happen between having an idea and seeing that idea through. You may feel as though you need to rethink some things in your life. Questions like "am I enough or did I make the right choice?" come up. This can be the case even if your goal is going off smoothly. This period naturally asks you to look at your life to see if there is a chance to better yourself. If it is, take it but don’t make a choice just for the sake of choosing. Hold steady to your vision and where you’d like to go.
Making a choice from the heart and using your intuition will save a lot of heartache during the waning phases of the moon. If you are feeling a need to rethink your life, hold tight for a bit because this energy will soon pass with the full moon. Take some time to go outside and bask in the light of the moon. Look up! Seeing a halo around the moon is said to be a sign of hope and that all will be well when the moon reaches its full power.
