The Moon today is in Sagittarius and is waxing Gibbous. I am sorry but that is just a funny word. Gibbous, not waxing. Waxing means the moon is reaching 50 percent illumination to we Earthlings. Waxing means it is getting bigger to our view – waning is the oppoisite,
But Gibbous? Really? Basically, it is from the shape of the moon – greater than a semi circle less than a full circle. It is still a silly name.
Waxing Gibbous is half way between a half moon and full moon. A Gibbous moon can either be waxing or waning depending on whether the moon is going toward or away from the full moon.
When it is waxing, you may want to concentrate on what you want to manifest…remember, it is in Sagittarius so that deals with learning and growth. On the waning, it is best to work on what you want to leave behind.
Good idea – silly name!
