Symbolism of Moon Phases

The phases of the moon serve as another glimpse into her intricate meanings.

Waning Moon:
Symbolic of letting go, surrender, release, quiet time, contemplation, and a time of incubation.

New Moons:
Symbolic of new beginnings, a fresh start, rebirth

Waxing Moon:
Symbolic of growth, manifestation, attainment, gravidity (heavy with child - both philosophical and literal).

Full Moon:
Symbolic of the height of power, the peak of clarity, fullness and obtainment of desire.

Moon symbolism in Native American tribes (Navajo, Eskimo, Pueblo come to mind), along with African, Japanese, Maori, Teutonic, Oceania, and Sumerian-Semitic groups refer to the moon as a masculine force.

More intriguing than gender, is the means by which the moon wields her force and influence. She is considered a luminary, but she produces no light of her own accord. She is reliant upon the sun's light to reflect (mirror) her image to our earthly eyes.

This method of projecting light makes the moon a symbol of subtlety. Clarity, reflection, and indirect deduction are gained by passive means. Where the sun will boldly bear down its blaze upon a given philosophical subject - the moon softly enfolds our attention - illumining our psyche in a gossamer glow that is more open to esoteric impressions.

The symbolic moon facts can be found in alchemical teachings wherein the moon is a facet of silver. In the ever-parabolic perspective of the practicing alchemist, we know silver is symbolic of clarity, purity, and brilliance. Silver is one of the three foundational metals of the Prima Materia and so the silver-personified moon is prominently placed upon the triune throne of transformation.

More symbolic moon facts are derived from myth, lore and culture as we see lunar associations tied with deities and cyclical events in human collective consciousness.

To wit, the moon is associated with such symbolic archetypes as...

Archetypal Moon Meanings

Artemis:
Greek hunter goddess whose personality highlights include chastity, protection, avengement, and childbirth.

Diana:
Also a huntress archetype, and woodland goddess of the Romans; she is protector of women and animals.
Hecate:
Adopted Greek goddess of the night specializing in birth, cycles, purification, crossroads and second (otherworldly) sight.

Thoth:
Egyptian god (note male attribution) of the moon having connections with magic, wisdom, writing, and hidden meanings (associated with Hermes in Greek myth, who interestingly, like Hecate is a figurehead of crossroads too).

Virgin Mary:
Christian symbolism features her with the new moon where she resonates with the concepts of purity, peace, illumination, and perfection.

Kuan Yin:
Chinese goddess of purity, grace, kindness, selflessness and benevolence. She is believed to be a matron of childbirth, and is called upon for aid in conception as well as healing. She also protects transitioning souls and travelers.
