This hard-working Moon in Capricorn is also a Gibbous Moon. Let’s get out of the gym for a moment, look at the sky and explain a little Lunar Astrology. In Astrology a moon’s phase in the time of birth is extremely important because it shows us the way we interact with the world.
Our motivation, modes of thought, our energy, all is in tune with the moon’s light. If it is waxing we are outward and expanding, having aims, goals, we grow as the light reflected form the moon surface grows. If we are born in waning phase the process is more inward, maturation occurs, conclusions endings and re-assessments, clearing for the new takes place.
Let’s get back to the gym now. There’s Arnold’s moon in the corner lifting, a waxing one and in Gibbous phase. This phase denotes Growth, Development and Establishment the building of new structures and systems of thought. So fitting to this man’s life that has built a structured body and a whole new school in bodybuilding and more importantly established and re-established himself and his career three times.
Waxing Gibbous: a phase that denotes self-development and production, perfection and overcoming of obstacles. Exactly what Arnold’s philosophy and life show.
