CAN IT'S JUST A PHASE® PREDICT THE FUTURE?

No app or astrology reading can predict or tell you how you'll feel or how to act. A natal chart can be interpreted in many ways and beyond that, you're an individual with lived experiences that have shaped and changed you from the day you were born. The most reliable way to interpret the governing energy of the moment is to reflect and understand it in the context of YOU.

Which is why we created It's Just a Phase®. The moon is an entry point to note the astrological energy of the moment and to understanding astrology. It's the closest celestial body to earth and it is said that la luna governs our moods.

HOW DOES IT'S JUST A PHASE® WORK?

My mission is to create a space for people to learn about the moon's phases, the different signs of the zodiac in the context of how they are feeling. There is so much astrological content available nowadays, I like to think that It's Just a Phase® serves as a reminder that we all have everything we need inside of us.

Astrology is a tool to help us see things outside of our own experience. Similar to tarot it serves as a way to view the world objectively and an opportunity to tune into our inner knowing.

Looking at the moon offers a simple way to step out of our current experience, plan and reflect. She is easily visible to the naked eye and she moves quickly, changing zodiac every two to three days. She's also a reminder that change is inevitable and everything is temporary.

Use It's Just a Phase® to note the energy of the day using our journal feature. Be sure to write down how you are feeling, what is working, what you're working toward and general observations.

Use the calendar to see where the moon is progressing during the month/year and see if you notice any patterns repeating. I.e - do you feel energised when the moon is full, or does it affect you differently? Note your feelings and patterns will start to emerge giving you greater insight into yourself and the world around you.

If you're after an extra bit of magic, use the magic mushroom to 'Take the Trip'. Select 'Take the Trip' from the bottom menu. Clear your mind and focus on a question. Tap the mushroom and note the answer. It will provide you with another context to consider your query from.

WHY JOURNALLING?

So you have an app that tells you where the moon is, what the governing energy is - but there's still work to do? Yep. We recommend making your journal practice regular and extra points if you want to take it beyond the app.

Our journal features allows you to mark dates, note times and governing energy to add further insight to your reflections and planning.

Journalling for reflection and planning is a proven way to connect with your intuition and gain clarity

USING THE APP TO SET INTENT

Ritual is when you take the mundane and imbue it with meaning. Do it regularly and you have a praxis. We like to use the word praxis because it implies action and putting ideology into play. When you have a personal praxis you are focusing your intent, and as the saying goes, 'where attention goes, energy flows'. You can bring things to fruition.

To imbue an act with meaning, esoteric teachings for years have taught that correspondences such as colour, scents, days of the week or the moon's phases hold verity which speaks to your subconscious to affirm your intent. Intention is magic.
