The moon fascinates us every month with its beautiful transition into the different phases. The cycle of the moon is said to affect human beings and their moods. Astrology considers the sun, the moon, and planets to be aligned with the emotions, attitudes, and personalities of human beings. The moon is considered female and has a connection with our emotions, fertility, and menstrual cycle. Like the moon, we are driven by moments of passion and emotion. Women have had a profound connection with the moon by seeking guidance and protection through its phases.
The moon goes through a cycle of eight phases in one month. From the new moon, first quarter to the full moon and last quarter, the different phases of the moon influence our moods and understanding what it does to us can help us harness that energy to our advantage. While it has been understood that the moon’s phases can affect our mental health and physical activity patterns, the moon we choose determines the type of personality we have. Let us discuss the five types of personalities based on the phases of the moon.
1. The Overachiever
An overachiever is drawn to the phase of the moon that is called the waxing gibbous. It is one phase away from becoming a full moon which signifies that an overachiever chases perfection. They work hard to reach their goals and push themselves to always achieve flawlessness. While this is a good trait, it has its downside too because when things do not go according to plan, they tend to disappoint themselves and others. As an overachiever, they have set the bar high for themselves and everyone around them expects them to shine in everything they do and this puts them under pressure to be the best, if not more. This moon teaches them the importance of knowing when to stop and changing the course of direction if need be. It reminds them that it is good to reevaluate and redefine goals to reap the benefits of their full potential. It is necessary to make some sacrifices so they don’t burn out.
2. The Artist
The first quarter moon indicates new experiences and new beginnings. An artist is drawn to this moon simply because of its flexibility. They see the beauty in the little things around them. They are drawn to sensuality and have high sensory experience. They live to discover the simple pleasures of everyday and that keeps them motivated. Their openness to new experiences is a beautiful characteristic that can cause them to get carried away by losing their sense of self in extensive socializing, partying, drinking, and eating. With help and inspiration from the moon, they can learn to focus on their work and exercise their full potential.
3. The Caregiver
The full moon, also called the harvest moon, represents the caregiver. They are grounded, reliable, and practical. They enjoy taking care of the needs of everyone and are often appreciated for their level-headed personality. They seek stability and loyalty in relationships but often do not get them because they are taken for granted. They are not keen risk-takers but they must step out of their comfort zone to embrace new challenges. With the help of the moon’s energy, caregivers can reap rewards if they choose to be spontaneous.
4. The Compassionate
People who choose a full moon surrounded by pretty clouds are compassionates. They live to right the wrongs with their compassion and care. They are motivated by servicing others even if it costs them their selves. They are the kind of people that give their food to someone even if it means they have to starve. They put others’ needs before theirs which is an admirable attribute but it can cause them harm too. They are often so caught up in helping other people that they tend to forget about their needs and desires. Eventually, this type of attitude can cause frustration due to a lack of personal fulfillment. The biggest lesson they can take from the moon is to learn how to help themselves before helping others.
5. The Thinker
Contemplation is second nature to a thinker. They have profound insights into how the world works and what makes them thoughtful friends to have around. They love to introspect and observe the different patterns of how people around them function as well as how they respond to situations thrown at them in the course of their life. They are mostly introverts who enjoy keeping to themselves which makes insightful to their friends and family. However, the problem with this is their mind is constantly running and they tend to overthink even the slightest situations which can be exhausting. It is important to be practical when problems arise, not just reflective.
6. The Truthful
You do not believe in the concept of sugarcoating. You take inspiration from the crescent moon and like speaking your mind. You are very authentic by nature and may come across as blunt to people but what others say about you does not affect you. You value honesty and transparency above all else.
7. The Braveheart
You like the spotlight and leave no chance to take the lead. You love a good competition and like having a fixed goal as it gives you a deeper meaning and purpose to life. Just like the supermoon, you like to be a superhuman and love to face challenges in life.
Just like the moon, we have our phases too. It is up to us how we use each phase to our advantage instead of letting it affect our mood. Are you fascinated by the moon? Let us know in the comments below which personality you relate to the most.
