what are the phases of the moon

Since time immemorial, the Moon has captivated mankind with its constant and rhythmic cycle, manifesting itself in different forms in the night sky. These manifestations, known as “lunar phases,” are the result of the dynamic relationship between the Earth, Moon and Sun, and the variable illumination of the Moon’s visible surface by the Sun.

The main phases of the Moon are:

  • New Moon: The Moon is positioned between the Earth and the Sun, the illuminated side faces away from us, and the Moon is not visible in the sky.
  • First Quarter: Half of the Moon, on the right side, is illuminated.
  • Full Moon: The Earth is positioned between the Moon and the Sun, causing the entire visible side of the Moon to be illuminated.
  • Last Quarter: Once again, half of the Moon is illuminated, but this time on the left side.

Between these main phases are gradual variations called rising and waning, representing the transition between phases.

The tradition of Wicca, a neopagan religion, deeply recognizes the importance of the phases of the moon, particularly the Full Moon. Esbats are Wiccan ceremonies or rituals that take place during the Full Moon. These rituals celebrate the lunar goddess and are a time to practice magic, meditate and make divinations. Each Esbat is unique and can vary by tradition, coven or solo practitioner.

In the context of Wicca, the Full Moon is not just an astronomical phenomenon, but a sacred time of divine connection, reflection and celebration of lunar energies.

Eclipses, equinoxes and solstices of 2024

Blue moon in 2024

A seasonal blue moon will occur in 2024 on Monday, August 19 at 14:26 EDT (19:26 UTC) due to the presence of four full moons during the 2024 summer season. In contrast, there will be no monthly blue moon in 2024, as each month will feature only one full moon.

For clarity, there are two definitions of a blue moon:

The widely recognized one in which two full moons appear in a single month, which is called a blue moon.
A less common definition is one in which a season witnesses four full moons; in this case, the third full moon is designated a seasonal blue moon.
