The moon's cycles photographed during a full year.

Embark on a journey of the key lunar dates for the 2024 moon phase calendar, your guide to the eclipses, new moons, full moons, and other key phases that will illuminate the skies. Use this guide to help with your own ritual planning, astrological ceremonies, and planning for the year ahead.

Over the course of approximately 29.5 days, we witness eight distinct phases of the moon. Whether consciously recognized or not, these shifts in the lunar cycle can profoundly influence your energies.

For women, in particular, there's a mystic alignment with the moon's 28-day cycle, an ancient and intuitive connection that, while enigmatic, is undeniably felt. Ever notice how a full moon might disturb your slumber, awakening a surge of untapped energy?

The moon's gravitational pull is undeniable, governing the ebb and flow of ocean tides. Considering our bodies are made up of 60% water, it's hardly surprising that we sense her gravitational sway as she progresses through her phases.

In a dance as delicate as it is impactful, she influences your internal tides just as she does the sea's, imprinting her presence.

Eclipse Dates for 2024

Eclipse dates for 2024.

Imagine the Earth, the Sun, and the Moon playing a game of cosmic hide and seek. Sometimes, the Moon sneaks in between the Earth and the Sun, hiding the Sun from us for a little bit – that's called a solar eclipse. It's like the Moon is saying, “Peekaboo!” and the Sun briefly disappears from your view.

Other times, the Earth gets in between the Sun and the Moon, and the Earth's shadow hides the Moon from us. That's a lunar eclipse, and it's as if the Earth is telling the Moon, “Now, it's your turn to hide!” These are special moments when your celestial friends play their hiding games, showing you beautiful and rare sights in the sky.

Eclipses are also massive portals of change and beginnings. It's like the universe closes a door on you, and then another opens for something new and fresh to begin.

Tip: Don't use eclipse dates for magic. EVER. Don't do it, unless you really know what astrological energy you're locking into that wish and act.

In 2024, the eclipse dates are:

  • March 25, 2024: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse at Libra 5°07
  • April 8, 2024: Total Solar Eclipse at Aries 19°24
  • September 17, 2024: Partial Lunar Eclipse at Pisces 25°41
  • October 2, 2024: Partial Solar Eclipse at Libra 10°04

Are There Any Blue Moons For 2024?

A Blue Moon refers to the second Full Moon that occurs in a single calendar month. This phenomenon is relatively rare, happening once every two to three years, which is why the term “once in a Blue Moon” is used to describe events that are infrequent.

the Mysteries of Moon Phases: Your Guide to the Night Sky

A beautiful crescent moon perfect for a night sky watching event.

You're embarking on an enchanting journey through the moon's phases, where each step from the delicate crescent to the radiant full moon unfolds the story of its celestial voyage.

This journey, shaped by the moon's orbit around Earth, unveils the moon's surface in varying shades of sunlight, creating a stunning spectacle for you to admire. The key milestones—new moon, first quarter, full moon, and last quarter—showcase the moon's shifting glow and position through the sky.

When the moon is full, it's fully illuminated by the sun, offering a spectacular view of its earth-facing side in complete brilliance—a sight you won't want to miss.

As the moon diminishes, it revisits its path, moving from the glowing full moon through the gibbous phase and back to the last quarter. This interplay of light and shadow is essential for grasping the lunar month's rhythm.

With a lunar calendar in hand, you can identify the specific dates of each phase, from the next anticipated full moon to the elusive crescent phases, enhancing your enjoyment of the night sky.

This cycle doesn't just affect earthly tides; it also invites you to connect with the grandeur of the cosmos, pondering the intricate ballet of the moon, Earth, and sun.
