Sure, you probably know your zodiac sign, but do you know your lunar personality?
Unlike your astrological sign which is determined by the positioning of the planets on the day of your birth, your lunar personality is the moon phase under which you were born.
From its control over the tides to its impact on all manner of natural life, the moon and its energy are one of the most powerful forces on Earth. So, naturally, the phase of the moon you were born during also has a huge impact on your life. Like your astrological sign, your lunar personality offers insight into your personality traits and tendencies, but it also helps signal the quality of the first energy you were exposed to at birth and how that might help determine your path in life.
There are 8 phases of the moon cycle: New Moon, First Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Last Quarter and Balsamic Moon. Consequently, these are also the 8 lunar personalities.

The New Moon marks the official end of a Lunar Cycle and is therefore a signal of new beginnings. Consequently, those born under this moon phase possess the renewing energy of the Moon, leading to a tendency to engage in creative pursuits. That creativity results in natural imagination and intuition, but also brings with it impulsive tendencies.
New Moon personalities are known to jump into decisions without fully considering the consequences. That being said, this means that New Moon individuals commit strongly to their passions and are able to make them a reality. Sometimes though, their resolve can waver with the changing cycles of the moon -- this means it is time for them to let go of inner nervousness and anxiety and connect with their inner values and what drove their passion in the first place. New Moon folk are the go-to people for fresh, new ideas.
First Crescent or Waxing Crescent
The waxing crescent marks the new moon just beginning to assert itself in the sky, so naturally those born under this moon phase are generally assertive, adventurous and curious. Waxing crescent individuals are very driven, ambitious, goal-oriented people. They are happiest when pursuing a goal that aligns with their drive for achievement.
Waxing crescents often waver between following their heart and thinking outside of the box and choosing to toe the party line. Their greatest battle is one between tradition and progressiveness. Ambition and productivity make those born under this moon phase likely to find success early in life.
Those born under this moon phase could be considered a rebel with seemingly endless causes. Highly emotional and in touch with their feelings, first quarter folk tend to lash out at things (or people) they disagree with, refusing to let the moment pass and often allowing their emotions to get the best of them.
These individuals are often a great blend of small detail obsessives and big picture thinkers. They are poised to improve upon things that have already been built and bring concrete change to the lives of those around them, so long as they can keep their emotions in check.
Those born under a waxing gibbous moon are a philosophical bunch. They tend to be deep thinkers who have a need to find meaning in life. As a result, they’re natural communicators, spreading their talents for self-expression and love to all those who come across their path.
People born under the waxing gibbous are not often introverts -- or if they are, they still prefer to keep open channels of clear and pleasant communication with all of their loved ones and trusted friends and mentors. Generally, these individuals look inwards for mental and emotional growth to lead them on a path to success.
The full moon is perhaps the most glamorous and easily recognizable of moon phases. Those born under it are often subject to the intense emotional energy the moon gives off at its fullest state. Generally, those born under a full moon have difficulty expressing and/or comprehending their emotions. Still, they make up for this by being extremely gregarious, outgoing, friendly people. Full moon folk are often irresistibly magnetic and are not afraid to tell it like it is.
While others may feel chaos in their lives during the full moon, those born under its energy are at their best, feeling inspired, energized and motivated. Full moon babies posses strong intuition and as a result are quick learners who also can be easily changeable and fickle.
Those born under a waning gibbous moon are the do-gooders of the world. Possessed by natural caring instincts, these individuals have a calming effect and often feel compelled to help others. Above all, they are driven by a desire to make the world a better place. Sometimes this can lead to blindly follow certain ideologies, but this is generally tempered by their strong sense of intuition and their innate ability to remain strong in the face of adversity.
Last Quarter or Waning Crescent
Highly opinionated and deeply intuitive, those born under a waning crescent are perhaps the most supernatural of lunar personalities. We often associate the moon with the occult and legends of witchcraft, and it might be due to this moon sign.
Those born under the waning crescent are the most likely to be attuned to psychic visions and other dimensions -- their imagination is working overtime 24/7. This makes them highly skilled workers and lends them a maturity that often defies their years, but it also means they must fight to keep in touch with reality while they get lost in their daydreams and imaginative musings.
The Balsamic Moon brings deep spirituality and universal understanding. Those born under this moon are deep, deep thinkers who channel a deep and innate wisdom. The sooner you accept your spiritual connection with the universe as one born under this moon, the deeper sense of calm and peace you will feel. Many people are very self-involved, but those born under this moon phase are external, existential thinkers, concerned primarily with philosophy, possibility, and the biggest ideas and problems in our universe.
No matter your lunar personality, you are a uniquely special individual with the energy of your moon phase propelling you to success and achievement.
