- On the Lunar Calendar: 15 to 18 1/2 days after the New Moon
- Degree: 180 to 225 degrees ahead of the Sun
- Inner Directive: balance, achievement
With this Moon phase, the Moon is at maximum brightness, exactly across from its light source, the Sun. The Moon and Sun are in a dance in opposite signs, and this influences your personality. You radiate the qualities of both of these signs, but one reflects your inner life (Moon) and the other your external life (Sun). Your challenge is to find balance between these two expressions, and use that as your foundation for success.
You're socially expansive and exuberant. But like the Full Moon period itself, you can go overdo it, and overextend yourself. That's when you know you've absorbed too much (light) and need time to integrate what you've received.
