Waning Moon in 2020: a time to let go
The different phases of the moon don’t affect only the ocean’s tide, it also affects us, human beings. The behavior, health, desires, sleep, among other things, suffer changes with the phases of the moon. The effects of the Full Moon are probably the ones everyone is more aware of since there have been old legends around this moon with thousands of years. What we don’t learn is how to interpret it, both the ancient and the phases of the moon. Here we will tell you more about the energy of the moon during its the period of letting go, and the Waning Moon in 2020 calendar and the specific energy of each one according to the zodiac sign it happens.
Waning Moon in 2020: falling Autumn vibes
The energy of the Waning Moon is easier to explain using the metaphor of Autumn energy. After the Summer, the strong Sun, the party vibes and the externalization, many trees start to lose their leaves, the Sun is not so warm anymore, we look for heavier food that comforts the stomach and the mind.
We look back to the Summer, we smile and organize the things we didn’t pay so much attention for a while, the house, the finances, relationships, we (slowly) go back to work. We go to watch the sunset on a more contemplative mode than how we lived it during Summer.
Can you identify with it? That’s exactly the energy of the Waning Moon, after the crazy and intense Full Moon, and before the New Moon.
We slowly start getting more focused, things become clearer. Life start showing what you must leave behind, and which knots you need to tighten up. You feel more reflexive, contemplative.
You still want to be social, but you suddenly change the disco nights, for a coffee with some friends.
It’s a moment that will help you be objective about your life and your purpose!
Waning Moon in 2020: calendar influence by Zodiac sign
Following the Waxing Moon logic, we choose the Last Quarter day and sign to give you advice on the energy. Remember that the moon changes signs every two days, and therefore this is merely indicative of the overall energy.
January – Libra
- 17th, January
The first Waning Moon in 2020 happens in Libra and you’ll feel like being in a calm environment, surrounded by those calm and diplomatic friends.
It might be that the way you see the things that you need to let go is not so clear since Libra has this downside of being always questioning what is the right decision.
February and March – Sagittarius
- 16th, February
Sagittarius has multiple dimensions, as every sign. Even though the most famous characteristic of Sagittarius is its expansive and going outside aspect, there’s also this other dimension that perfectly combines with the Waning Moon. We are talking about its capacity to connect both with studying and faith.
Use these sides to start looking more towards yourself, and be more with you, and connect with the universe.
April and May – Aquarius
- 15th, April
Aquarius loves to think about the community, and it will be no different with the waning moon.

June – Pisces
- 13th, June
A more organized Pisces moon, than in other phases. It still puts light on your feelings and emotions, but on a more soft and bearable way (comparing especially with the waxing and full moon). Observe it, connect with yourself and enjoy the curative and inspiring vibes.

Influence of the phases of the Waning Moon in 2019
This lunar phase implies a decrease in energy or a reduction in activity. For this reason, it is not a good time to start projects but rather to finish those that we already have pending. This is the best-case scenario for finishing everything that does not interest us and that is too much for us, both internally and externally.
Thus, internally we must try to eliminate the melancholy or depression that burden our present and cloud our future. This means lifting the weight of unnecessary prejudices from our shoulders and settling our spirit with positive thoughts in order to face what is to come with high energy levels. On an external level, it is a good time to take a walk around your house, clean it and give it a new look.
The reduction of the visible part of the Moon usually brings a downturn in emotional life with it, meaning it will go through a low moment when compared to the normal pace of the relationship. You do not need to become nervous and just let this stage pass quickly in order to strengthen it again later.
Therefore, the phases of the Waning Moon in 2019 indicate that this is a period where it is not a good idea to start new projects, but that it is better to take things slowly, completing projects that are unfinished and saving energy for the future.
