Herein First Quarter is the rarest occurring phase because it only lasts for approximately 24 hours when Sun and Moon form (almost) exactly 90-degree angle between each other.

Waxing Crescent

To begin with, this phrase means that Moon is waxing which is good because it means that the mindset of individuals born during this lunar phase has a bright perspective on life and is oriented to take action.

However, as during this phase, Moon contains a lot of darkness which means that they must motivate themselves more in order to take proper action in life to fulfill their tasks or goals.

In other words, there are various hesitations and demons haunting their mind which should be overcome to increase the efficiency of actions.

However, this is not an issue for these individuals because of a very strong Aries Sun and the 10th disposition which makes them people of action and passion.

They are able to overcome the negative thoughts by their emotional strength and unshakable passion for what they are doing.

Waxing Gibbous

In this article, we shall learn about 3 Nithya Yoga combinations which can be formed by Aries Sun and Cancer Moon.


Shoola is the 9th out of all other 27 Nitya Yoga combinations which are governed by the natural benefic planet Jupiter.

Despite this, Shoola is considered one of the inauspicious Nitya Yoga combinations.

Shoola means something that is long and sharp, most likely used as a weapon that causes damage.

The Shoola Yoga combination empowers the valor of Aries Sun in a positive direction.

Ganda is the 10th Nitya Yoga combination which is governed by the harsh but justice-loving planet Saturn. This is considered one of the difficult or malefic Yoga combinations.

Ganda means that this combination holds a lot of knots, difficulties, and obstacles.

However, with fiery passion provided by Aries Sun and the emotional strength of Cancer Moon, no obstacle breaks these natives down.

Gana Yoga shows that these individuals have a lot of internal/emotional as well as external challenges which they are able to overcome with the help of strong Sun and Moon.

In fact, resistance by opponents or other outer forces motivates Aries Sun natives to work even harder which means that they can achieve even greater results than if they would not have any opposition.

The emotional turmoil, which happens from time to time, tempers their emotional strength which helps to deal with various obstacles in life.


Vriddhi is the 11/27 Nitya Yoga combination which is governed by Mercury. It is considered one of the auspicious Sun Moon Yoga combinations.

It helps these natives to become better versions of themselves both mentally and physically gradually.

Such individuals are extremely honored and promoted by society for their truthful and courageous nature.

With that being said, they are very brilliant and charismatic which attracts a lot of admirers around their society.

As Mercury, which rules Vriddhi Yoga combination, signifies intelligence, it amplifies Cancer Moon by endowing these individuals with exceptional cognitive abilities and emotional intelligence.
