Your ‘lunar personality’ is the phase of the moon you were born in. The placement of the moon at the moment of your birth allows you to understand your personality traits and why you function the way you do. The moon goes through eight phases including, New Moon, First Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Third Quarter and Balsamic Moon.

If you were born during the New Moon you can stop your life from falling apart by learning how to be more empathetic towards those who don’t share your love for knowledge and who may not understand things that are obvious to you. It’s easy for you to stick your nose up and think things like, ‘you can’t fix stupid’ but that’s not helping anyone.

Learn how to be more understanding and patient or else you will blow up, and that wouldn’t be a good look at all.


If you were born during the First Crescent you can stop your life from falling apart by adjusting your attitude and mindset. You are very stubborn and that can cause a halt on your creative process and slow down your determination to thrive. It can also cause you to be very difficult to work with because things have to be done your way.

Start practicing letting go of all the control you crave or else you could burn some bridges this year. The best thing you can do to stop your life from falling apart in 2018 is to take a step back and allowing more in.


If you were born during the First Quarter Moon you need to stop thinking everything is your way or the highway. You refuse to accept anything you don’t agree with which will never help you get anywhere. You have to learn how to look at things from other perspectives and stop leading with your emotions.

You will live a happier life the moment you make the conscious decision that you aren’t always right about everything and that just because someone does things differently than you doesn’t make them wrong because there are a lot of ways to do things. Realize if you take a step back things won’t fall apart.


If you were born during the Waxing Gibbous Moon you are so selfless and offer so much to others that sometimes it makes you feel like your life is falling apart from giving so much. More often than not it overwhelms you and you wonder if you’ll ever have time for yourself.

Putting yourself first should be high on your list this year. You need to have your own goals and deadlines you meet. Sometimes you’re going to have to say no and it shouldn’t feel like the end of the world. Most people are understanding and asking for more time or telling them you can’t help out won’t be the end of the world. Stop prioritizing everyone else’s needs.


If you were born during the Full Moon you need to realize how emotional you are is not a bad thing but you need to become aware of how to keep those emotions in check. You can be irrational or over emotional about a few things and that can cause you to act like the world is ending. It’s extremely dramatic for those around you.

As you grow, you will grow into your emotions and become more secure with who you are and what you have to offer. You will become more in touch with your emotional side and feel like they aren’t controlling you as much. This will come with a lot of self-awareness and reflection. Once you get your emotions in control your life will feel much better.


If you were born during Waning Gibbous you can stop your life from falling apart by realizing you can’t save everyone and you weren’t put on this earth to do so.

You love to spread your love and knowledge, and are happiest when you’re teaching others but you can’t help everyone, nor should you try. Some people will reject your love and not everyone wants to be helped. You can’t help those who don’t want to be helped and it will take a huge weight off your shoulders being okay with this. You’re allowing yourself to feel ruined when other’s lives aren’t going as you know they can. It’s not your life and sometimes you just have to let others make mistakes before they actually want to get better.


If you were born during the Third Quarter you can stop your life from falling apart by taking what others say to you with a grain of salt. You tend to struggle with the opinions of others and how much you let their opinions influence you. It’s time to stop doing things others want you to do and start focusing on what you want to do in 2018. It’s time to figure out who you are first and foremost then make decisions from there. Remember, it is your life and you are the only one who should have control of what’s going on. Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing and focus on what you’re doing.


If you were born during the Balsamic Moon you can stop your life from falling apart in 2018 by taking the time to fully and completely understand yourself. You were born with great wisdom and intuition but you need to stop doubting yourself.

Once you start doubting yourself that’s when things start falling apart. You are smart and understanding so don’t question yourself too much to the point where you lose faith in yourself. You are capable of so much more than you think. Start giving things a shot next time around and you could be really surprised. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
