The Lunar Phases - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lunar phases refer to the appearance of the illuminated portion of the Moon as seen by an
observer on Earth. The lunar phases vary cyclically as the Moon orbits the Earth, according to
the changing geometry of the Earth, Moon, and Sun. One half of the lunar surface is always
illuminated by the Sun, but the portion of the illuminated hemisphere that is visible to an
observer can vary from 100% (full moon) to 0% (new moon). The phases of the Moon have been
given the following names, which are listed in sequential order:

Dark Moon - Not visible

New Moon - Not visible, or traditionally, the first visible crescent of the Moon
Waxing Crescent Moon - Right 1-49% visible
First Quarter Moon - Right 50% visible
Waxing gibbous Moon - Right 51-99% visible
Full Moon - Fully visible
Waning gibbous Moon - Left 51-99% visible
Third Quarter Moon - Left 50% visible
Waning Crescent Moon - Left 1-49% visible
New Moon - Not visible

The Waxing Moon

The Waxing Crescent Moon rises after
sunrise and sets after sunset - it is only
seen in the night sky for a short time after
the sun goes down.
The Waxing First Quarter Moon rises about
at noon and sets about at midnight.
The Waxing Gibbous Moon rises in the
middle of the afternoon and sets before well
before sunrise.


The Waxing Moon Spiritually

During the Waxing Moon, we witness the
growing of the crescent moon. This phase
resonates with the energy of springtime,
the building of momentum, the seeds
reaching up through the dark soil and into
the light.
The Waxing Moon invites us to be aware of
the focus and direction of our energy and
attention. What are we nourishing and
growing in our lives? What are we feeding
with our energy and attention? Are we
getting distracted from our intentions and
commitments? The Waxing Moon teaches
us about sacred pace in the unfolding, about being at peace with who we are right where we are,
honoring the beauty and purposefulness of all that is as we learn and heal and grow.

The Muses
The Muses represents a special form of Goddess energy and
personification. They are the daughters of Zeus and
Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory. Mnemosyne was the
daughter of Uranus and Gaia. It is said the nine daughters
were of one mind though each has specific talents attributed
to them. Their hearts were full of song and they were free
spirits. They enjoyed comforting as well as inspiring people.
They used song and dance to heal. Hesiod said of them,
Though a man has sorrow and grief in his soul- when the
Muses sing at once he forgets his dark thoughts and
remembers not his troubles.
They were born at the foot of Mount Olympus and this later became their sanctuary. Apollo,
Greek God of music, the light and the sun was said to have been a teacher to them and they were
often seen in his company.
The Muses enjoyed all manner of praise and were known to be a bit arrogant. Pierus once said
that his own daughters were better singers than the Muses. The ladies learned what he had said
and turned his daughters into magpies, ducks, finches and other birds.
Thamyris, the Minstrel, challenged a contest with the Muses. He lost. The challenge suggested
Thamyriss belief that he was just as good as the Nine. This angered the Muses. They blinded
him and made sure he could not challenge anyone again. They took his memory from him so he
could no longer remember the music or words to songs he had travelled and sang his entire life.
They were once entrusted with the care of Pegasus. This lively animal was so excited to meet and
be in the presence of the ladies he kicked at the mountains behind him. Spring water rushed out
of the places he had kicked. Thus the Muses sacred symbol has often been said to be springs and

All Nine Muses

Calliope was the eldest and wisest of the 9 Muses. She was the most
excellent Muse of all, accompanying respectable royalties on their way.
In depictions Calliope can be seen crowned with gold, holding a writing
tablet or a volume of Homer's Odyssey in her hand. Calliope was the
favorite Muse of the Greek poet Homer; many even consider Calliope being
the actual mother of Homer.
Clio (Clieo) was the goddess of epic poetry and history and is also considered
to be the inventor of the guitar.
Clio once fell madly in love with the King of Macedonia, Pierus and with
Pierus she created the beautiful Hyacinth, the lover of Greek god Apollo.
Clio is often depicted dressed in purple with laurels on her hair, in the one
hand holding a cornet and in the other a book, the book Clio used to write
Erato was the muse of lyric love poetry, hymns and wedding songs.
She is often shown with a wreath of myrtle and roses, holding a lyre, or a
small kithara, a musical instrument that Apollo or she invented. Other
representions may show her holding a golden arrow, reminding one of the
"eros", the feeling that she inspires in everybody, and at times she is
accompanied by the god Eros, holding a torch.

Euterpe, the so-called "Giver of Pleasure", was the Muse of Music.

At classical times, Euterpe became also associated with Lyric Poetry and was
many times depicted holding a flute.
The Greek river Strymon lied with Euterpe and they created a son with the
name Rhesus. Rhesus was a hero of Homers Iliad who was killed by
Diomedes during the Trojan War.
Melpomene was the Muse of Tragedy, despite her joyous singing.
She is often represented with a tragic mask and wearing the cothurnus,
boots traditionally worn by tragic actors. Often, she also holds a knife or
club in one hand and the tragic mask in the other. On her head she is mostly
shown wearing a crown of cypress.

Polyhymnia was the Muse of the divine hymns, sacred poetry,

geometry and mimetism. Polyhymnia is often depicted like a very
strict and thinking deity, with a wrath of daphne in her hair, looking
up to the sky and expressing herself with gestures while playing the

Terpsichore was the muse of the Dance and the Dramatic Chorus
She is usually shown sitting down, holding a lyre, accompanying with her
music to the dancers' choirs.
Terpsichore was also considered to be the mother of the Sirens.

Thalia was the Greek muse of comedy and pastoral poetry.

She is often depicted holding a comic mask.
The main attribute of Thalia was a shepherd's crook.

Urania was the muse of Astronomy and Astrology as she was able to foretell
the future by the position of the stars.
She is usually shown having a globe in her left hand and a peg in the right, and
her foot on a turtle, symbol of silence. She is able to foretell the future by the
position of the stars. She is often associated with Universal Love and the Holy
Spirit. She is dressed in a cloak embroidered with stars and keeps her eyes and
attention focused on the Heavens.

Long given credit for ideas that come in the night, lyrics and sentences woven out of air or music
that transcends oneself where the instrument and player are one. Call for assistance from the
muses in all creative endeavors. Robert Graves wrote in his classic, The White Goddess. "The
reason why the hairs stand on end, the eyes water, the throat is constricted, the skin crawls and
a shiver runs down the spine when one writes or reads a true poem is that a true poem is
necessarily an invocation of the White Goddess or Muse, the Mother of all Living."

Receiving the Initiation

You can begin with creating a circle of light around you. You may light a candle in honor of
Lunar light. The candle can be blessed by rubbing the scent of your choice into it and saying
prayers of intention while doing so. You do not have to bless your candles but some prefer more
ritual in their practice and can do this if they wish. As you light the candle state your intention to
be initiated to this energy. You can have soft music playing if this helps you relax. It does not
matter if you choose to lie down or sit as long as you feel comfortable.
Once you have grounded or anchored your energy and become centered, you may call whatever
guides, Ascended Masters or Divine you may want for assistance. You may also call your
protection animals or place gemstones within your circle. Use the ritual that feels right to you.
The waxing moon is a time of building and drawing things to you that you want present in your
life.. This can be in reference to love, wealth, success, courage, friendship, luck, health,
protection, divination. If you feel what you desire or working on could use extra power it can be
done now. This is the time for learning new things, beginning a new course of study, manifesting
your abundance, working through legal situations and watching your dreams.

New beginnings, creating the life you want or just a project that you are working oncall on the
Muses. They will comfort your soul with song and dance and help you feel lighter. They may
take you along for a break from it all. Have fun and enjoy the company of the entertainers of the
ancient Greek gods. When you have completed the initiation, remember to give thanks to all
who assisted you.

Passing on the Initiation

To pass the initiation to others follow the same process as above. Make it your intention to pass
this on to another and trust that The Muses have heard your request and will grant it. Give
thanks to the goddess and all who you asked assistance of and the initiation is complete.
