THE 11 PHASES OF THE MOON
The Eleven Phases of the Moon and The Influence of Their Effects.
According to the physicists’ reasoning, there are seven phases of the moon, but we find eleven listed elsewhere:
1. New moon;
2. First visibility;
3. Next the crescent moon, 45° from the sun;
4. Next the quarter moon at 90°;
5. Next the gibbous moon at 135°;
6. Next the full moon at 180°;
7. Next the second gibbous phase when it is 45° from full, i.e. 225° ;
8. Next the second quarter at 270°;
9. Next the second crescent at 315°;
10. Final visibility at 360°;
11. There is another phase as well, when it first begins to wane.
What Each Phase Indicates and What Effects It Has.
We will append how the preceding phases are to be taken in casting horoscopes and to which god they
The new moon is indicative of rank and power, of kingly and despotic dispositions, of all public business concerning cities, of parents, marriages, religion, and of all universal, cosmic matters. The
rulers of the new moon, of the latitude, and of the motion are indicative of the same things.
The first visibility of the moon (which is also called its “light”) and its ruler are indicative of life, occupation, and future wealth; in addition, it strengthens the matters influences by the now moon.
The ruler of the “light” indicates the overall influences in the same way that the monthly cycles and the universal cycles are observed by means of the first visibility. Mercury adds its influence until day 4 of the moon’s motion.
The crescent formation is indicative of nurture and expectations in life, of wives and mothers. Mercury adds its influence until day 8.
The quarter formation is indicative of injuries, diseases, and violent accidents; also of children, status, and good things to come. Venus is configured with the moon until day 12.
The gibbous phase is indicative of prosperity, future success, travel, and the affinity of relatives. The sun works with the moon until day 14.
The full moon is indicative of fame and infamy, of travel and violent events, of those who fall from preeminence as well as those who rise from a humble state, of affinities, passions, political opposition, and the affinity of parents. This phase has the color of the sign in the Descendant.
The first ruler of the waning of the light is indicative of the diminishing of resources, of the chilling of occupations, of those who grow humble and lowly, and of sudden falls. This phase has the same influence as the sign which just follows the Descendant. Mars is its ruler until day 21.
The second gibbous phase is indicative of travel abroad, of great activities, and of prosperity. It has the same influence as the God. Jupiter is its ruler to day 25 of the moon.
The second quarter phase is indicative of old affairs, of chronic diseases, and of children. /108K/ It has the same influence as… Saturn is its ruler to day 30.
The ruler of the last crescent is indicative of a wife’s death, of unemployment or robbery.
Finally, the last visibility is indicative of chains, imprisonment, secrets, condemnation, and infamy.
The preceding was the arrangement of the moon’s phases, their relationships with the five gods and the sun in the … angles.
