There are three phases that occure between a New Moon and the following Full Moon. These phases are the Waxing Crescent, First Quarter and Waxing Gibbous. Through these phases the Moon is growing brighter each day.
Children of the Waxing Crescent tend to be similar to those born under the New Moon - you are adventurous, joyous and full of curiosity. But there one key difference: you tend to be more timid and conservative when it comes to taking risks and trying new things. In fact, you have a tendency to cling to the past and stay in your comfort zone. Being relatively weak in energy, your instinct is to ensure your own security above all.
It is absolutely crucial for a child of the Waxing Crescent to learn to be more independent and courageous. Embrace discomfort, awkwardness, and struggle. Accept potential failure and pain as a necessary side-effect of risk-taking. Challenging yourself and taking risks is the only way you can grow and develop into a fully actualized individual.
The Waxing Gibbous Moon is the phase just before the Full Moon, when the Moon is nearing its full potential. Individuals born under this Moon are predisposed to be caring, nurturing, and calming. You likely excel at developing relationships with other people, guiding them and inspiring them to reach new heights in their lives. If you put in the time and effort, you can easily surround yourself with people who love you, or at least respect you.
On the flip side, this also means that you are acutely aware of your own potential - specifically, your own potential to achieve perfection. Tragically, even though you can be an amazing mentor and guide to others, that same impulse transforms into perfectionism when it comes to yourself. This compulsion can be debilitating if you don’t keep it in check. To fully achieve your potential, you need to accept that you will never actually be perfect, that there will always be room for more growth - and that’s what makes life beautiful.
