Gibbous phase in Aquarius - September 17th 2021
Updated: Apr 29, 2022
“If the whole universe can be found in our own body and mind, this is where we need to make our inquiries. We all have the answers within ourselves, we just have not got in touch with them yet. The potential of finding the truth within requires faith in ourselves.” ― Ayya Khema

We just entered the Gibbous phase of the lunar cycle. A very yin, feminine, reflective phase that allows us to transition to the second half of the cycle before the Full Moon at 28° of Pisces coming on Tuesday 21st of September at 1:54 AM CET.
We’re invited to an introspection before the blossoming of the Full Moon. What can we refine, modify, rectify? It’s an internal, subjective and very personal process that can be supported by the feedback that we received since we set our intentions at the New Moon. Did we notice any change in the way we relate to our friends and family, to our body? Did we receive any message from the Universe? Did any “coincidence” or “synchronicity” confirm that we are on the right track?

The Gibbous Moon Phase has an energy similar to the Virgoan archetype, a humble spirit, the awareness that things can be improved, a desire and drive for perfection. It gives us the opportunity to distinguish precisely what really serves us in order to constantly improve ourselves. It is of utmost importance to reconnect mind and body to be able to welcome the healing and purge through which we’re all going as a species. As many spiritual masters say, “your body is your temple”. Prioritize your health and focus on your body, you can’t move forward if you’re not treating it as the most precious thing there is in your life!
As I just said, this phase brings a Virgoan touch to the atmosphere, but the Moon is currently transiting the sign of Aquarius and just happened to be in conjunction with the planet Jupiter currently retrograde. Jupiter retrograde is a time of introspection focused on the spiritual and philosophical values that are necessary to our growth and development. The Moon shortly aligning with Jupiter invites us to a short emotional check that can be necessary regarding the area of life that we are dealing with at the moment (love, career, health, etc.). The things we have to work on are extremely important and we need to make sure that we’re emotionally aligned before continuing.
The whole package being in Aquarius is ringing a bell, reminding us to act 100% in accordance with our own unique beliefs and values while being useful to your dear ones and/or society at large.
The Moon will enter the sign of Pisces in five hours or so. You can start preparing yourself during the next 2,5 days for the next Full Moon coming up. It’s a time of retreat, to have time on your own and meditate, to experience quiet moments with your soul. It is inviting us to recognise that a part of ourselves has to die if we want to create a new and fresh vision for our life. We will ALL be exposed to a highly sensitive and spiritual energy that can be extremely hard to face. The temptation to numb ourselves with food, drugs, alcohol, sex and other diversions will be really high. So really take the time to rest and cherish your body. You will definitely need it to be able to integrate the divine messages that will come up during the Full Moon. The Moon in Pisces is the most receptive Moon spiritually, so let’s ask humbly for some guidance. If we ask, we shall receive.
