Just the other day, I received an email from a customer where she described how powerful she feels when wearing a custom ring we made for her. Not only is that awesome to hear but because of her response, today I would like to talk a little bit about the power and meaning behind the phases of the moon.
Using the moon phases as a pattern and the crescent moon as a symbol on Zenned Out jewelry is something I have been doing from the beginning because the moon holds special meaning as a feminine symbol, as it embodies the natural cycle and rhythm of our days, since it controls the tides, the rains and the seasons.
The moon is also a symbol of immortality and eternity and each of its phases holds specific meaning as well:
- Waning Moon: Symbolic of letting go, surrender; a time for contemplation and planning.
- New/Crescent Moons: Symbolic of new beginnings, a fresh start and rebirth.
- Waxing Moon: Symbolic of growth, manifestation and attainment.
- Full Moon: Symbolic of the height of power, the peak of clarity, fullness and obtainment.
Are there other meanings of the moon that are significant to you? Did anyone see the spectacular blood moon that occurred a few weeks ago?!
