Waxing gibbous, or the lunar summer – features and tips

Waxing gibbous is the moon phase, which comes after the first quarter (the moment when half of the lunar disk is lit) and lasts until the full moon. This period lasts about a week, takes 6 lunar days.

You can identify a waxing gibbous with the naked eye if you do not follow the lunar cycle. Outwardly, the moon will remind you the letter “P” if you draw a wand to it. In addition, more than half of the lunar disk will shine in the sky.

Waxing gibbous – lunar summer (9th-14th lunar days)

Waxing gibbous phase is also called the lunar summer. The time, in which the Moon passes through all its phases, we can divide into four seasons: spring, summer, autumn, winter. Or to draw a parallel with human life – childhood, youth, maturity, old age.

Each moon phase has its own character, favorable for certain actions. And all this is very similar to the corresponding season of the year and the time of human life. Summer, youth is the time of active external action. The fruits on the trees ripen, young people are engaged in the realization of children’s desires and themselves in the outside world. This is a period of active steps towards dreams, the implementation of plans conceived on a waxing crescent.
