Waning Gibbous and its Meanings | Eight Lunar Phases

Welcome back to the eight-part blog series where we dive into the spiritual meanings of each lunar cycle. Phase six of the Moon’s lunar cycle is quite a cool down from the massive energy of the full moon. But it still has some important meanings behind it!

The sixth lunar event of the Moon’s lunar cycle is called the Waning Gibbous! This is the point at which the Full Moon starts to get darker and darker as the moon is changing position in orbit around the earth.

The Waning Gibbous moon is mostly visible in the daytime sky early in the morning!

Spiritual Meanings of the Waning Gibbous

Inward reflection & contemplation

As the moon starts to lose its power and energy it’s now time to start refecting inward and contemplate what to let go of. The lunar cycle is ending and we no longer need to project outward on what we wish to accomplish.

How do you feel about what you set out to accomplish during the start of the lunar cycle? Did you succeed in what your heart sought to do? Reflect on these things and start to let go of things that are bothering you as a new cycle is right around the corner!

The Full Moon of July is referred to as the Buck Full Moon. This time of the year is when the buck deer start to grow their antlers. The naming of this moon is traced back to Anglo-Saxon times and was adopted in the U.S.A.
