The Waxing Gibbous phase is the most philosophical of the moon phases, embodying the search for meaning and purpose. Events taking place during this phase represent growth and a striving for deeper significance beyond the everyday. Those born under the Waxing Gibbous moon have a strong need to understand and never stop asking “why?” If your birthday falls within this phase, you may be quite spiritual. Your strengths lie in seeing the big picture and you are focused on the greater good. You strive to learn all you can and create a sense of purpose--both for yourself and those around you. You help people understand themselves and situations better and are motivated by growth.
