The Moon Today
The Current Phase of the Moon
The Phase of the Moon: Waning
next phase at 9/5/15 2:54 AM
The waning Moon is most beneficial for matters at a stage of consolidation, conservation and completion. It hampers growth and helps to remove anything not desirable. Cutting hair now will make it grow slower. Plant or replant plants which have fruits under the ground.
To see the phases of the Moon for any month and any location, use the Universal Lunar Calendar.
The Current Position of the Moon in the Zodiac
The Moon is in the Sign of Taurus, at 12° 57'
Patience, diligence, perseverance and practicality are on the increase. The Moon in Taurus favours occupations which demand prolonged and persistent effort, but it is also good for complete rest in comfort and coziness. It is a good time to treat plants. It is best to avoid undertaking anything which requires quickness, decisiveness and quick-wittedness.
You can find out in which sign of the Zodiac the Moon was or will be located on any day using the Universal Lunar Calendar.
The Current Moon Void-of-Course Status
Void of Course: Later
It is believed that anything undertaken when the Moon is void-of-course will bring no result. But there is also another, positive facet of the void-of-course Moon: if something risky or difficult is undertaken, something where other people can create a problem or interrupt you, this time seems to be beneficial, because those who might create a problem can do nothing against you.
