Don’t Wax in a Waxing Moon Phase by Maria Mercedes

Don’t Wax in a Waxing Moon Phase   

Knowing what to do during a waxing moon phase has been critical to manifesting the life of my dreams. But during a waxing moon, there are certain things you should Not do.  Do you know what they are?

WAXING MOON PHASE MEANING:

waxing moon phase

The moon cycles every 28 days from New to Full to New again.  The phases of the Lunar Cycle listed in order consists of New Moon, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Last Quarter,Waning Crescent until we have a new, New Moon.

The period between New and Full represents growth while the moon is waxing or growing.  During the waxing moon phase, the gravitational pull and angle with the sun transitions to reflect more and more light each day.

The period between Full and New is called waning or disseminating.  When the moon is waning, the night sky is getting darker and darker as less light reflects on the moon.

Waxing Moon Phase No No #1:

DON’T Start a Restrictive Diet, but DO Start an Exercise Regimen

Make no mistake- I’m not saying that you should eat cookie dough for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!  I’m just saying that isn’t the time for limitations and constraints.  Obviously, consult your medical professional and always follow their instructions.  I’m just encouraging to align your timing with the moon’s energy.

The waxing moon intention should be on gaining health, increasing strength, and growing healthy habits.  Try to expand your workout routine, or increasing your daily number of steps.  This is a great time to learn new recipes (healthy ones if you’re trying to lose weight.)  

Since the moon is growing this is literally a time for expansion and progression.  I like focusing on promoting healing with healthy foods, exercises, and habits I can add to my life.

So, when should you diet?  Never… Just kidding.  I recommend starting diets while the moon is waning because the lunar energy is conducive to constricting and reducing but again, consult your doctor.

No No #2:  DON’T Wax, but DO Cut hair to encourage Growth

You heard me right.  The waxing moon says that don’t wax, shave, or pluck in a first quarter moon (if you can get away with it).  Hair grows faster during a waning moon.  It is as through the growth of the moon is acting as a magnet to grow hair.  Sounds crazy? Well check out the farmer’s almanac for the best days to cut hair to slow growth.  You will quickly notice that they correspond with the Waning moon- not the Waxing moon.

The waxing moon phase is very clearly the best time to cut to encourage growth. This applies to plants, hair, nails etc.  Waxing moon phase is a great time to trim nails to promote healthy growth. I recommend creating waxing moon rituals of self-care such as, facemasks, pedicures, and bubble baths! We can always use more self-care!

I don’t know about you, but I want hair on my head, not on my legs.  So, if you are so suited that you can wear long pants for a few days, shave, wax and pluck during the waning moon instead.  When I can I get on a three-week waning moon calendar rotation I notice I need to shave my legs less because I have less hair.

No No #3:  DON’T
