We all know about our astrology signs and how the planetary positions at our birth affect our personality in life. However, most people don’t realize that we also have a natal moon phase or lunar personality type that also plays a role in determining our personality.

Our natal moon phase is the phase the moon was in at our time of birth. There are 8 major phases of the moon: New moon, first crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, last quarter, and balsamic moon.

New Moon

If your natal moon phase is the new moon, your life is all about growth and evolution. Those born under this sign are always eager to grow and progress and enjoy learning new things. You are a naturally curious individual and are likely keen on adventure. You may sometimes be naive- but you truly believe with all of your heart that anything is possible.

Conversely- you may be a big fan of new beginnings, but will likely have many of them in your lifetime. Your attention span is spontaneous as your mindset- so it’s likely that you will start many projects and have a difficult time finishing them.

First Crescent (Waxing Crescent)

Those born under this moon phase may be equally traditional and progressive. They like to dance to the beat of their own drum and are highly loyal people. Waxing crescent personality types are highly determined individuals who are also a bit stubborn at times. They are self-assertive and have incredible strength and willpower.

First Quarter

First-quarter lunar personalities are quite rebellious. They will not agree with something unless it is something they wholeheartedly agree on- and they are highly emotional beings. While they have the best intentions, they can easily get caught up in their emotions, which can lead to trouble. They are big picture thinkers and are also deep thinkers that pay attention to the fine print.

Waxing Gibbous

Waxing gibbous lunar personalities are filled with passion and purpose. They come into this world with the intention of doing something big and are oftentimes lightworkers and empaths. When they stumble upon something, they truly believe it- they will put every single bit of their effort into it until they have seen it through. They are also highly analytical individuals who enjoy personalizing just about everything.

Full Moon

Full moon personalities are highly sensitive and intuitive. They are also very aware of themselves and their emotions and cycle much like the moon. While at times the full moon personality may become a bit oversensitive- they are usually aware of this and will spend much of their life trying to keep their sensitivities in check. They are also highly superstitious and big believers in luck.

Waning Gibbous

Waning gibbous personalities are natural-born teachers and leaders. They are wonderful at explaining things in a way that others are receptive to. And they are also future-oriented people who believe they can change the world. Because of that, they are likely humanitarians in all aspects of their life. Those born under this phase of the moon are intellectuals who appreciate learning, growing, and deep conversations.

Last Quarter

People who are born under the last quarter moon are deeply understanding and also highly intuitive. They can be strongly opinionated at times, and they stand by their beliefs, regardless of what others think. Those born under this sign are likely to question everything while rejecting the status quo. They don’t care for the official story- they want to know what is really going on. As they age, this will become more and more apparent.

Balsamic Moon

Balsamic moon personalities are highly spiritual and also deep thinkers. They enjoy deep talks about the universe and are likely to have multiple existential crises in their lifetime. However, as they grow to understand and develop their spiritual nature, the more at peace they will become during their life, with many shifting into the status of a lightworker. Those born under this moon were born to help encourage humanity to evolve and to become better.
