"There is a tide in the affairs of men,
which taken at the flood leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
is bound in shallows and in miseries."
[William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar]
It has been said many times that timing is everything. However
which timing to use can be so confusing. Many systems, many
ideas, many concepts.
One basic, simple system that I have seen work thousands of
times, is to use 2 parts of the lunar cycle.
The first is the period from the New Moon to the Full Moon, and
the second is the period from the Full Moon to the New Moon.
The Waxing Phase:
The New Moon is the darkest phase of the Moon, but it also marks
the beginning of the two-week period when the Moon moves away
from the Sun and increases in light.
New Moons are optimal times to set new intentions. One cycle is
another is beginning.
If we take this principle and put it into our own lives, the
waxing Moon is a period to plant seeds, either by taking action
to launch a new idea into reality, begin a new relationship, or
just admit to yourself that you want to make a change. The
important thing about the New Moon is that it's a time to take
first steps. The waxing Moon is a time of spontaneous and
The New Moon is the first phase of each lunar cycle. Use this
phase to go within to plant your intention or "seed vision" for
what you want to grow, create or transform in your life for this
At this time, all of the power of the Sun (Spirit) is
encapsulated in your seed vision and planted deep underground in
the subconscious womb of the Moon (soul). Solar and lunar
energies come together and magnetically pull in the same
direction to provide the thrust for this new life.
In general, this is a period of instinctive, youthful, and
essentially unconscious activity. Since all is hidden from light
at the dark Moon, dreams and waking inspirations often hold the
The New Moon is a powerful time to start new projects. It is the
time to take action. First have a clear intention and take action
from that intention.
The second part of this cycle is the period of time between the
Full Moon and the New Moon.
The Waning Phase:
The Waning Moon phase (between the Full and the New Moon, or when
the Moon is diminishing in light) favors completion, letting go,
and finishing things off. This is not the time to begin new
projects, since the energy of the cycle is diminishing and you
will be less likely to follow through once the next lunar cycle
begins. It is a time to share and distribute the insights,
profits, and other gains from your actions.
Clear your life of unfinished business now. Declutter your
workspace, do that paperwork you've been putting off for sometime
and complete any unfinished projects. This will clear the way and
free you to take advantage of new opportunities at the next New
If during this time someone proposes a new idea or project, it
may be best to let it simmer until the next New Moon. Many new
ideas are discarded or not followed through when they are
generated during the late lunar cycle. The New Moon generally
brings a new perspective on things, new information and new
opportunities. It is best to wait until then for important new
The simplest way to understand both timing cycles is to use the
New Moon to Full Moon time for action, and the Full Moon to New
Moon time for reflection and planning the next action phase.
Most calendars have the New Moon and Full Moon dates listed on
them. Try this timing in your business and personal life. It will
attract great success to your work and personal life.
