The Synodic cycle between the Sun and the Moon is the simplest and most fundamental of all cycles. While there is much focus on the lunation cycle in mundane astrology, there is little attention paid to the phase of the Moon into which an individual is born. While house and sign placement obviously have great bearing, there are distinct patterns of behavior and attitude discernible from the angular relationships between the Luminaries at the time of birth. In this lecture Colleen concentrates on the personal, she examines the importance of the New Moon before birth and how that impinges on the nature of the individual. She then tracks the personal traits of each phase as the Sun and Moon move through the eight phases from one conjunction to the next.
