The moment you joined the rest of us here (as wee little bébé), the Moon, the planets, and the stars were all in a particular place in the sky overlooking the newest arrival. And each of us, regardless of whether you were born during the day or late at night, has a Moon phase that we were born under. Did you know that based on the Lunar phase, there’s a whole personality associated with it?
Our mini-series on lunar personalities started way back when we have slowly been making our way through all the phases. First things first, if you don’t know what Moon phase you were born under, you can find it here! Just add the date you were born, and voilà. So, if you’re not a Waning Crescent baby, so far, we have covered the Waning Gibbous, Waxing Crescent, Waxing Gibbous; and if you aren’t any of those, then not to worry, it will be coming soon.
We usually start with a little recap on the phase. There are 8 phases in total, and it’s one thing you remember the names of the phases but sometimes another to recall whether it’s waxing or waning. The Moon is waning following the Full Moon until the New Moon (when you don’t see anything at all), and it’s when we see the white of the Moon on the left side of the lunar disc.
As for the crescent, think back to Alice in Wonderland, whichever version you’d like, and to the Cheshire Cat: his smile, well, that’s the shape we are talking about. In more technical terms: when the Moon has the form of a single curve, specifically where the center is broad and then tapers off to a point on each end, that’s a crescent.
For those of you who were born under the Waning Crescent, well, we don’t know what we would do without you—known as being some of the best conversationalists who are just as good at listening as they are at giving both thoughtful and wise advice. You know how to get deep and meaningful, and it’s because, at your core, you’re a thinker.
We don’t necessarily mean a deep thinker that sits on the loo thinking of philosophy and the meaning of life, more than the gears in your mind are always turning. Does that mean that sometimes you overthink tiny little things – but of course. That’s why it’s nice to have a super grounded friend or partner who will gently notify you that your brain is working overtime.
While your brain is always on, it also means that you have a creative way of thinking, which can manifest either in creativity regarding having a great eye, talent in the arts, and creativity when it comes to problem-solving. You think in the box, outside of the box, and all around the box. Your imagination has always been a place of solace for you, and rightfully so. Just remember to come back to reality every once in a while.
You enjoy the buzz of social life and can assimilate into big groups well, but in the end, there’s nothing like a night in with someone you care about. You’re a seeker of the finer things like the life you like to enjoy beautiful spaces, delicious food and all things fine. This love of good stuff translates into your love life. You know what you deserve, and you won’t settle. We salute you, Waning Crescent-ers, and we could all learn a thing or two from you!
