Moon Phases 2015

The phases of the Moon or the lunar phases is the shape of the illuminated or sunlit portion of the Moon as seen from an observer on the Earth. The lunar phases change as the Moon orbits around the earth and the relative position between the Earth, Moon and the Sun change. One half of the face of the Moon is always lit by the Sun. But the other half whose illumination changes by the day is the cause for the various phases of the Moon.

2015 moon phases

The main lunar phases are the new moon, first quarter moon, full moon and last quarter moon. These phases are when the difference in the celestial longitude of the Moon and the celestial longitude of the Sun is 0°, 90°, 180° and 270°. Find below a table of the four different lunar phases for all the 12 months of the year 2015. This table might come in handy when planning important tasks in your daily life. Did you know that vaccinations and going to the dentist on a New Moon day ought to be avoided? Also the moon phases need to be kept in mind when you venture into gardening....

New Moon: During new moon the moon would be between the earth and the sun. It is the exact time when the moon goes from waning to waxing.

This is a time of birth or spring of new life. Hence it is an apt time for you to start any new venture. But it would be a risky situation as you would not be loaded with much information related to the job at hand. Do not make any commitments a t this time because you do not know the outcome. New moon is a good time to make wishes and ideals in life.

First Quarter: This is the phase of the moon when it is perpendicular on the distance from the earth to the Moon. This is the first time after the new moon.

This would be a time for building. Things gain speed or momentum during this phase of the Moon. This is a time for action and not thinking. Conflicts in interests are likely during the first quarter of the Moon which need to be sorted out then and there.

Full Moon: This is the time when the Moon goes from waxing to waning. The Moon would be fully illuminated and the earth would lie between the Sun and the Moon.

Full Moon is the time when your efforts start to bear fruit. This is a good time to open up your information or creativity to the world. All your efforts culminate now.

Last Quarter: This is the time when the Moon is perpendicular on the distance from the earth to the Moon.

This is a time to review your works. An apt time to bring your works to a close. Not a good time to start anything new.
