The Moon travels around the Earth as the Earth travels around the Sun. Over the course of 28 days, the Moon becomes progressively visible through 8 Phases: New Moon, Crescent Moon, First Quarter Moon, Gibbous Moon, Full Moon, Disseminating Moon, Last Quarter Moon and Balsamic Moon.
We see the Moon, mostly at night, reflecting the Sun, as it shines past the rotating Earth.
It’s been said that people who were born at night, and those who are emotionally sensitive will benefit from moonlight baths. The moon’s reflection nourishes the constitution and emotional body. Each phase of the moon contains a specific quality of nourishment.
Such nourishment improves the vital energy necessary to project creatively and with purpose in the world.
