The cycle of Lunar phases offers us an inner guidance system for insight into our life experiences. Each lunation cycle consists of eight phases which reflect gradual and distinct perceptual shifts as the Sun/Moon angle changes. Like changing lenses, our subjective Moon views shift every 3.5 days into the next phase.
