Moon in Waxing Gibbous

A waxing gibbous moon appears a day or two ahead of the full moon and is often mistaken for a full Moon. As the moon waxes and wanes our bodies too react differently to each phase of the Moon. During this phase nutrients are absorbed more easily and digestion requires less energy. According to traditional beliefs when the moon appears to be waxing it is the best time to undertake actions as the desired outcome is achieved easily. This phase is also considered to be good for acquiring new things. If you tend to put on weight, this is the time to do something about it.
