The Gibbous phase is Receptive and Discerning. It is about developing tools and techniques that serve the original vision. This is a pivotal point in the cycle. It’s time to review, revise, and reinforce your intention for the cycle by seeing it in a new light. Filter and analyze the information that you have obtained as a result of your previous actions. Question everything. Seek new methods that maximize efficiency. How can your vision be refined and improved? What details have you overlooked? There is a struggle during this phase to release self-criticism and learn self-trust. The function of this phase is to become self-reliant. Give up making judgments, it will only lead to worry.
The Gibbous phase connects directly to the New phase and once again relates to the emotional body which is supported by sight, inner and outer. The confidence of inner vision awakens and releases the power of creativity. Look at the picture or image that you created or envisioned in the New phase. See it with a new clarity. Understand that the whole picture still cannot be seen, therefore, your knowledge is incomplete. Learn to trust in the process. LOOK WITHIN.
Keywords for the Gibbous phase are analyze, prepare, trust.
