A Moon cycle is the length of time it takes the Moon to revolve once around the Earth.

A complete lunar cycle lasts 29.5 days.

Some people may tell you that it’s more like 27 days, which is true. This IS how long it takes for the Moon to cycle once around Earth, BUT because the Earth has moved along just a little bit on her orbit around the Sun, the Moon needs to travel for
just over two more days to reach the same relative position once again.

Moon Cycles and Phases

During her cycle, the Moon moves through four distinct phases. These are:

  • New Moon
  • Waxing (including first quarter)
  • Full Moon
  • Waning (including third quarter)

Moon Cycles and Astrology

Usually, every time the Moon cycles around, to become new again, She is ‘reborn’ into a different zodiac sign to the one before. And these progress in this order:

  • Aries
  • Taurus
  • Gemini
  • Cancer
  • Leo
  • Virgo
  • Libra
  • Scorpio
  • Sagittarius
  • Capricorn
  • Aquarius
  • Pisces

Because each Zodiac sign has different strengths, qualities, and spheres of influence, the whole of the lunar cycle will be influenced by the sign it began in.

What’s really magical about this is that it gives us all the opportunity to use the prevailing lunar energy to focus, for one complete lunar cycle, on a single area of our lives.
