One of the first things I learned about my astrological makeup was what the phase of the Moon was at the moment of my birth. It was cool to see what the Moon looked like on the day I was born, and it was later interesting to learn how the phase of the Moon reflected my personality. Using the Moon Phases calculator, you can see what the phase of the Moon was at the moment of your birth. Simply select the month and year you were born, and then click on the day you were born on the calendar. Following are descriptions for the eight phases of the Moon from Douglas Bloch's and Demetra George's fantastic workbook, Astrology for Yourself (this is a great introductory book for learning about your astrology). Let me know, if you resonate with your Moon phase and sign!
Note: Moonstone is the talisman of the Moon, and it is beneficial for inner growth and strength, calmness and relaxation. It also enhances intuition and promotes success and good fortune in love and business. Buddha Groove sells beautiful moonstone jewelry, as well as other gorgeous gifts.
