There are eight phases of the moon, but the ones commonly used for moon rituals revolve around the full moon and the new moon. The sun and moon come into alignment during the new moon, joining the sun and moon's masculine and feminine energy. This time is associated with positive change. During the full moon, the moon is fully feminine and is associated with intuition. It is a time for creativity and personal insight.
