  • 1. The Phases of the Moon The moon revolves around the Earth with an approximate distance of 382,400Kilometers. One lunar month pertains to 30 days, which is the number of days it takesfrom one new moon to another. Within this lunar month, the moon encompasses all thesedifferent phases. Just the same as the earth, the moon is half lighted by the Sun while itsother half experiences total darkness. These phases were caused by the angle made bythe moon with the sun as it rotates while orbiting the earth. Moon is seen only because the sun rays reflect back to the earth from its surface. Half of the moon is always lit by the Sun, but this lighted side does not face the earth all the time. As the moon circles the earth, the angle changes and only the lighted part is seen. These changes are what we call the Phases of the moon and it occurs for twelve (12)lunar months to complete one (1) earth revolution. This completes one (1) whole year. During the phase of the New Moon, the moon is aligned just in between the Sunand the Earth. We only get to see one side of the moon and it is not lighted. In otherwords, we do not see the Moon at all since the lit side phases the Sun and the dark sidephases the earth. There are moments when the Moon gets accurately lined up with theSun. This occurrence is what we call the Eclipse. When the moon goes to the east side, it moves away from the Sun. As this point wesee a bit more of the lit side of the Moon. Just a couple of days from the New MoonPhase, a thin crescent can be seen in the Western part of the night sky. This thin crescentcontinues to expand until it looks to have grown bigger. At the time when half of themoon is already lighted, the current moon phase is called Quarter Moon. The nameimplies that the Moon is just about a quarter away from the beginning of the lunar month.As we see it from Earth, we can now see the sunlit side of the Moon from off to the side.
  • 2. As time pass, the moon continues to wax until the half circle of the moon is lighted.It now carries the shape that we call gibbous. This so called gibbous moon looks to growfatter and fatter every night until the time we see the full view of the lighted moon. Themoon is now on its Full Moon Phase. The moon is now half way its lunar month. As the moon reached the half of the lunar month, it shall start to appear thinner eachnight. The time it takes until it reaches the New Moon Phase again is called the waning.At this point, the shape of the moon is still gibbous however, as said; it is expected togrow thinner and thinner each coming night. The moon will then reach its third quarterpoint of rotation and the Moon will once again show its one illuminated side. The sidethat appeared dark during the first quarter is now the lighted part. The Moon shall go onits journey until it reaches its New Moon Phase again. Understanding the Lunar Cycle - The MoonsAstrological SignsSome people base theireveryday lives on astrologysigns.
