3 Lessons You Can Learn From The Moon ๐ŸŒ™



The moon, in all her beautiful glory, teaches us through her phases.

She shows up in my creative work a lot as a metaphor for this human experience weโ€™re on; having so much to teach us and reminding us every night when she shows up in the sky.

A few lessons you can learn from the moon:

๐Ÿญ. ๐—ช๐—ฒ ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ปโ€™๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ด๐—น๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ต๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ธ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ผ.

Without the contrast of having bad days, we can never know how good, good feels. The dark phases of life are necessary to feel the joy of the light. If youโ€™re feeling in a dark place, sit in it knowing the brightness of your full moon is coming soon.

๐Ÿฎ. ๐—ฌ๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ปโ€™๐˜ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฒโ€™๐˜€ ๐—ฝ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐˜€

Phases evolve in the darkness, growing only ever so slightly with each passing night. Just as the moon progresses in phases, so do we.

Comparison trap tricks us into thinking that we need to shine like a full moon always, that there is no room for phases โ€“ because often thatโ€™s the only part of otherโ€™s journeys that we see. Stay present and see your phases for the beautiful growth that they are, and your full moon light will shine brightly for you just when it's ready to.

We only get the moon for so many hours a night before it disappears slowly into the horizon, giving the sun its opportunity to shine.

Let the moonโ€™s fickleness serve as a reminder of lifeโ€™s changing nature. Know that everything you experience will pass, both the highs and the lows. The trick is learning to stay present and bright through it all.
