The sphere, big non luminous celestial body,
A planetary mass object and a rocky body,
In the sky it shines like night queen,
With the army of stars and silence in the darkness yet gracefully radiating.
The season's controller without which winds would become much faster and stronger,
And the tides would be 1/3 of the size than they are at present.
Do you know what we learn from this moonshine ?
It tells us to find were we can shine bright.
Moon belongs to the night,
And so do we all belongs for something to be done.
Which we can do perfectly,
Proving ourselves shining bright.
Do you know what moon's beauty portraits ?
It says that there is beauty even in the darkness,
only you need to see that beauty by adjusting your eyes.
Ever wonder how life on earth without moon, would be like ?
Moon must be praised for the significant relationship it bears for our lives.
Nights would be darker,
Sky would appear loneliest.
Illumination of lonely path to dawn would be switched off and something would be felt as missing in the sky that need to be there!
And so with eight phases of moon,
Moon becomes a moon, which it is meant to become!
The first phase is the "new moon",
It is when moon cannot be seen because we look at the unlit half of the moon.
It symbolises new beginnings and reflect goals that are needed to be lived throughout in order to get done.
Though the half portion can't be seen,
Still it is there!
A moon will be a moon,
No matter if it is seen half or full.
That's how we should too relate it with the moment when we are not acknowledged for our efforts, talents or anything else, during our life's circumference.
Since "we" are still "we",
who has the capabilities within,
One or the other day we will surely completely glow and gleam.
Then comes the next phase, "A waxing crescent moon",
It symbolises the faith and encouragement along with first step towards fullness,
Steps just as we too need to take,
Action towards goal, in order to reach there !
The first quarter moon then appears,
when half of the lit portion of moon is visible.
This symbolises challenges, decisions and will power to resist obstacles or hurdles.
Requirement of working harder, staying stronger and being stable can be only one's saviour.
As if it says that your week of rest and intention setting is over,
Get out of the comfort zone if any,
Since life ain't easy for anybody here.
"A waxing gibbous moon", then occur between first quarter and full moon phase.
It symbolises refinement,
Yes that's how we too must remove impurities or unwanted weeds,
from our life that takes us to the wrong ways or make us what we shouldn't be like ever.
And now comes the "full moon" - when we see entire lit portion of moon.
It is round and completely illuminated,
As if it reached its goal or became what and how it should be,
Symbolising completion, height of power, realization of desires and peak of clarity.
Hence there comes the need to celebrate the growth.
That's how we must take note of what progress we make,
And reflect how far we have come,
Which once we thought as hard to even begin or were hopeless and sad too in the journey somewhere.
But isn't everything worth it ?
You must relate it from this aspect,
It's what you must acknowledge feeling rare.
Then comes the, "waning gibbous moon" - when more than half of lit portion of moon can be seen and shape wanes,
Becoming less illuminated again.
Don't worry it's okay to be not okay at times,
Highs and lows are just part of life.
Be grateful and stay strong,
You need to rise up again.
So there comes the last quarter moon that signifies releasing, forgiveness and letting go.
Moon gradually decrease its size, saying you too must know the art of accepting hurdles and stuff like letting go and be aware of such life's flow.
That's how all the phases of moon,
signifies positivity, hope and strength, which are so important.
You need to go through some darkness and sorrows in order to ignite later.
