It starts from the full moon, where the moon is posited in front of Earth and gains high reflectance due to the light of Sun. Hence, the indirect sunlight which is reflected from the earth falls on it to make it appear white. The gravitational force of Moon is greater on the Earth’s facing side than it is at the center of the earth. This is what gives us high tides twice a day and low tides following 6 hours later.

Moon Phases in 2020

There are different phases of the moon which completes the lunar cycle in a month. The lunar cycle makes the lunar calendar, where the moon cycles in eight distinct phases with four different phases occurring in a week’s time. Here described are the different Moon Phase Calendar 2020:

  1. New Moon is a small part of the moon which can be seen as an arc. The side of the moon receives no direct sunlight when the moon is between the earth and sun. This is why the least amount of light which gets reflected from the earth can be seen in the form of new moon. This is the first part of the moon phase.
  2. Waxing crescent is a part which is a bit larger than the new moon, as the side of the moon that we can see gets more illuminated by the direct sunlight. This is due to the movement of moon around earth. Putting your ideas into reality can prove to be fruitful during this time.
  3. First quarter is a phase when the half moon or a semi-circle can be seen in the sky due to the moon being 90 degrees away from the sun and half illuminated. It is known as the first quarter due to the fact that the moon has traveled about a quarter of the distance around the earth since the appearance of new moon.
  4. Waxing gibbous is the condition when the appearance of moon seems larger than the one in the first quarter but smaller than the full moon. Here, sunlight falls on more than half part of the moon’s face. This is the phase where moon’s more than half side gets illuminated.
  5. Full Moon is the moon which is 180 degrees away from the sun and aligned with the earth, hereby making the sun, moon and earth aligned. With an occurrence of the perfect alignment, the lunar eclipse can be seen. During this time, psychic abilities of people increases.
  6. Waning gibbous is the same as waxing gibbous phase but the cycle now moves in the decreasing order as the size of the moon is more than half moon but smaller than the full moon. Also, the brightness starts to decrease.
  7. Last Quarter is the phase similar to first quarter. The only change is that the size has decreased from waning gibbous moon. Moonlight decreases while the waning cycle goes on. It is believed to be the time to cleanse the soul and inspire people.
  8. Waning crescent is the last and final state when the moon can be seen as an silver arc in the sky, just like the waxing crescent phase. During this time, the native tends to meditate and let go of unnecessary stress.
