NOVA Astrology Group Meeting Schedule from September 2018 to May 2019

Saturday, September 15, 2018: Lunar Phases with Tom Chaplin

The phases of the Moon are depicted by the synodic cycle which is the relationship between the Sun and the Moon. The Sun Moon synodic cycle begins at the conjunction or the New Moon and waxes and wanes through all eight phases. The lunar phase shown in your birth chart provides an interesting twist on your Sun sign and describes deep desires that inspire the Sun’s creative actions. The time of your birth as it corresponds to the Sun Moon synodic cycle is highly important in describing our motivations and personality. In this presentation, we’ll cover the 8 lunar phases as they pertain to the natal chart.
