You can find out the moon phase on your birthday using a simple moon phase calculator online like on yourmoonphase.com. All you need to do is enter your date of birth and then you'll be given your results.

For example, if you were born on January 1 in 2022 you were born during the Waning Crescent moon phase. That means you're likely to be extremely imaginative, creative, intuitive and perhaps even psychic.

TikTok users have now made it a whole trend and are seeing if their moon phase matches with their partners.
