What does the crescent symbol represent?
The crescent symbol is primarily used to represent the Moon, not necessarily in a particular lunar phase. When used to represent a waxing or waning lunar phase, “crescent” or “increscent” refers to the waxing first quarter, while the symbol representing the waning final quarter is called “decrescent”.
What does the moon symbolize spiritually?
Waxing and waning, the moon is a sign of constant change. It symbolizes nature, its blind and driven forces, the passing and return of its seasons. Transposed into the human realm, this image pinpoints moral instability, the changing heart, the gullible mind, and our frequently vacillating resolve.
What does waning crescent moon mean spiritually?
Waning refers to the decreasing of the moon’s light, inviting us to surrender and soften. The waning moon is a time to renew, withdraw, and rest. You may lean into this phase intuitively, or you may have to consciously carve out the time to pause if you tend to be constantly on the go.
