What Does The Waxing Crescent Moon Mean?

Updated: Jan 12

The waxing crescent moon phase offers us a chance to visualise, dream and move into energetic alignment with our intentions.


Waxing Crescent Moon

The Waxing Crescent Moon


After a New Moon we shift into the waxing phase of the Moon. As the Moon is growing in the sky, it’s time for us to grow too and to use the increasing energy to focus on your dreams and desires.


During a Waxing Crescent Moon, the Sun and the Moon start to part ways, beginning on their individual journeys through the Zodiac. As the Moon moves further away from the Sun, we can see more and more of the Moon being illuminated each night.


Rituals for a Waxing Crescent Moon


If you have planted a “seed” of intention under the New Moon energy, the week following is all about visualisation and dreaming. Imagining that seed as a fully grown flower, how it will look, what colour it will be and how it will smell.


It’s the same with your intentions, spend time bringing a vision of your manifestations into the here and now. Feel it. See it. Know that it is already planted and will soon grow into something beautiful.


The important thing to remember here is that we are only visualising the end result, not worrying about the steps it will take to get there. All we need to do is know what the destination is, the journey is the Universe’s job to take care of.


I have some gorgeous ritual wax melts for the Waxing Crescent Moon that you can use in your practices too.


Yoga Practices for the Waxing Crescent Moon


Much like the New Moon, for me this week of the Moon cycle is about meditation and visualisation. My yoga practices are centred around very gentle, floor based stretches and longer meditation practices.


Props like meditation cushions and bolsters are super comfortable and handy to have in your yoga kit during this week.


Crystals for the Waxing Crescent Moon


I love Clear Quartz for this phase of the moon mostly because it is known as the master healer and helps you to really ground into your visualisations.


It creates clarity and helps you to clear any blockages that might be standing in the way of your desires or even your ability to envision the future in a way that feels fulfilling and authentic to you.
