The Waxing Moon Waxing Moon means the moon is getting larger in the sky, moving from the New Moon towards the Full Moon.
This is a time for spells that attract, that bring positive change, spells for love, good luck, growth.
Also, during the period of bleeding, both the external os and the isthmus (lower uterine segment) are widened, facilitating penetration of the biopsy forceps into the endometrial cavity.
The final argument in favor of taking samples at the onset of bleeding is that endometrium of the first 2 days of menstruation is relatively easy to recognize histologically.
The pathologist can improve this to 2–3 days, however, by acquiring expertise in endometrial dating (all cases of normal endometria are to be dated regardless of reasons for sampling), and by basing the dating on those endometrial morphologic alterations that represent the most advanced phase of the menstrual cycle.First Quarter / Waxing Moon "Moon of Caution"Location: Moon is 90 - 135 degrees ahead of the Sun Span: Seven to ten and a half days after new moon. The Moon appears to be more than one-half but not fully illuminated by direct sunlight.Positive Attributes: Time of Warrior Maiden as represented by Artemis, Minerva, Bridget, Diana and Athena; the Virgin, not sexless but not reliant on sex or partners. The fraction of the Moon's disk that is illuminated is increasing. Relates to the movement of the shoots through the earth.Timing The best way to prove or disprove that ovulation has taken place is to take an endometrial sample on cycle day 22 or later, preferably at the onset of uterine bleeding.By obtaining samples at the time of early uterine bleeding, the pathologist will be able to determine whether the bleeding is caused by the breakdown of postovulatory, secretory endometrium; by focal necrosis of the endometrium associated with anovulation; by other pathologic states; or by hormone administration.
