What Makes You And The Moon So Similar?


“Sometimes, like the moon, you have to go through phases whether you like it or not.” -Marie Trupia

Keep this in mind whenever you are wondering what you and the moon have in common.

It is amazing to look up in the sky and see the moon and the many looks it gives us. The moon has its phases that it go through constantly and repeatedly. It all depends on how the sun strikes the moon.


When it comes to watching either yourself or other people, it is also amazing to see the many looks that are given. We also have phases that we go through constantly and repeatedly in some cases. The causes can vary depending on the situation.


Why must you and the moon have such phases?

  • For the moon, it is all about how the sun strikes it and its position as it rotates around the earth.
  • For you, it simply is needed for you to express, either verbally or non-verbally,  your thoughts and feelings about various situations.


Is having phases a bad thing for the moon and yourself?

  • For the moon, there is really no harm of it having phases because it has only one job: rotate around the earth. It has been doing a good job a very long time.
  • For you, it can only be bad when you do not know how to deal with the phases that you are in. That is why it is important for you to use the help of your support system, higher power, or calming techniques to help you get through tough cycles.
