The Moon is the yin and provides us with the application of our purpose. The Moon being the closest heavenly body to us, controls the rhythm of the sea and all its creatures as well as the flow of blood in the human body.

Gibbous Moon

Those born during the Gibbous Phase have an innate desire for perfection. Having sharp, analytical minds, they have a need to understand. Looking at a subject from all angles, they experience sheer joy when delving into the core of the matter.

They live their lives in anxious expectation augmented by the breath of the coming revelation. Children born at this time will not be happy with the answers, they will want to know why and how the answer came about. Gibbous Moon people make good apprentices as their goal is to learn all they can and become as good as they can get.

Moon in Aquarius

Original, knowledgeable, competent, has strong opinions.
Likes: freedom and reading.
Hates: mediocrity and incompetence.

They have their own, distinct and sometimes very original opinion. It is very important for these individuals to retain their independence and they don’t like their personal life to be anybody else’s concern.

Often the Moon in Aquarius individuals have some outstanding abilities in one or another field. They often take a central place in the company of like-minded friends. They can become really alone in their personal life, and their constant urge for independence can lead to chronic emotional stress.

There is an impression that at times they are getting tired of themselves which leads to trying to change abruptly; as if to become a different person.

To restore after a significant stress they need to have a hobby which they could plunge themselves into and forget about the surrounding world. It would be really good for them if they could speak out their problems, but this is not so easy, because Lunar Aquarian’s do not like to just chat with anyone about anything. They prefer dealing with experts in their field of interest – this is with whom they are ready to talk endlessly and if there is no such a person around, a good book could serve as a replacement for a friend.

There is a very idealistic and progressive streak in Lunar Aquarians that is admirable indeed. However, when the Moon is in Aquarius, natives often will deny the more irrational qualities of emotions—such as jealousy, possessiveness, and fear—in an effort to be “above” what they consider “pettiness”. When this goes too far, Lunar Aquarians can be emotionally blocked, distant, and detached.

Moon in Aquarius people are rarely flighty people, but they can be unreliable when it concerns the little things in life. Often, this is simply an assertion of their independence. In the long haul, however, they are rather constant, as Aquarius is a fixed sign. As long as they have their own space and the freedom to be themselves, however kooky that may be, they are trustworthy and loyal.


This is actually scarily accurate. I’ve never considered my Moon Sign or the phase of the moon important (or as important as my Star/Sun sign) but this really does explain some aspects of the Libran personality type that has never quite fit.

It makes me appreciate how complicated astrology is.

Goddess Archetype: Persephone

Goddess Archetype: Persephone

Persephone came in as a close second on the Goddess Archetype quiz I completed as part of my 4SJ. I’ve heard of Persephone and know the basics of her story.
I used this link as a reference.

  • Goddess of the underworld
  • Concerned with the world of spirit, the occult, matters associated with death.
  • She is mystical, visionary and often possesses spirit guides.
  • Archetypal child; radiating optimism and good hope
  • Kore, the Maiden, Persephone (or Demeter), the mature Woman, and Hecate, the Wise Crone.

Myths and Stories

  • Kore (daughter of Demeter and the maiden aspect of Persephone) was abducted (at the suggestion of Zeus) and raped by Hades and forced to be his wife. She was plucking flowers in a field when Hades (her uncle and god of the Underworld) abducted her to be his Queen in the dark world below.
  • The goddess, Hecate, strongly associated with the dark side of the moon and with witchcraft – was the only one to witness Kore’s abduction. She hears Persephone’s cries but does nothing, herself, to help and, furthermore, does not seek help from others.
  • Kore was extremely unhappy in the darkness of the Underworld and missed her mother, Demeter. Kore was ultimately allowed to rejoin her mother, who had arranged Persephone’s release. However, Persephone was obligated to return each Fall to spend four months of each year in the underworld as consort to Hades because she had eaten pomegranates from the underworld.


  • Her consciousness is diffuse, taking in all, rather than focused.
  • Has difficulty saying “no” and recognizing and asserting her own boundaries.
  • She may unconsciously attract destructive relationships or potentially controlling partners. As an unconscious protective measure, she may choose a safe alternative in a younger, non-threatening partner whom she can mother.
  • Difficulty explaining her reasoning as it is an intuitive perception.
  • Easily overwhelmed by feelings and impressions from her unconscious


  • Her receptivity, intuition, empathy toward the suffering of others, her keen powers of imagination, inspiration, ability to read the hearts and minds of others. Persephone, once matured through her own inner work, is the guide to the Underworld.


I’ve never related to Persephone – her story interests me but I’ve not had any run ins with this Goddess before (which I guess isn’t surprising since she’s not the type to assert herself). At the beginning I didn’t quite agree with the description but as I read more and more I could see how she fits into my personality.

A lot of the challenges that Persephone faces are what I’m working on currently with my mental health so I do believe she has some important things to teach me.
