Balsamic Moon Phase Dates 2023

Orange balsamic crescent Moon with text: balsamic Moon phase, 2023 dates, times

The balsamic Moon phase.

It's the closing chapter in the Moon's monthly saga. It brings a time of little or no light, the final crescent before the next lunar cycle and a new Moon.

Eight Moon Phases

Did you know that the Moon has eight phases?

They are:

  • New Moon
  • Crescent Moon
  • First Quarter Moon
  • Gibbous Moon
  • Full Moon
  • Disseminating Moon
  • Last Quarter Moon
  • Balsamic Moon

What To Do When The Moon's Balsamic

When the Moon enters its final phase, it's winding down an entire month of lunar waxing and waning.

That signals us to do the same: wind down. Rest, relax, reflect. It's the best time all month to step back, sleep more, and reflect on how the past month went.

  1. Thanks for doing this every year. I appreciate it and I use it every month. I’m looking forward to 2024.

    1. Dear Ariana,

      Thank you for taking a moment to comment. I'm glad you've enjoyed using the Balsamic Moon Phase Date calendars I've posted for several years.

      Wanted to let you know that I've retired from astrology as of the end of last year, so the 2023 balsamic calendar was my last one. NOTE: A quick shorthand way to know when we're in a balsamic Moon period: check when the next new Moon phase starts. Each month, the balsamic period starts approximately 3.5 days before the new Moon.

      If you'd like to know more about my retirement and "next steps" plans, do check out these two super short (4 minutes!) podcasts from my last two radio show visits with Anna & Raven: November 2023 podcast and December 2023 podcast

      Again, thank you for all your kindness and your interest in my astrology work over these many years. I so appreciate it. If you'd like to receive updates once I have more news about what's coming next, please reply and let me know. I'd be delighted to add you to my contact list.

      Wishing you the gift of peace and stillness during every balsamic Moon, this year and always. And happy 2024 to you!
