What does going through a phase mean?
The term "going through a phase" tends to mean that the person who is going through said phase is exhibiting less than desirable behavior that society or the speaker assumes will eventually pass with time. This idea often proves true, as the terrible twos and the teenage years do ultimately come to an end in most cases.

The sun at the moment is considered to be in the mid point of its life. At present it is growing a little every year. Every 11 years it increases in sun spot activity. It is a…t present going through a high sun spot period.
Only partly. We never see Mars in a crescent or new phase, just the full and gibbous phases. That's because Mars is farther away from the Sun than the Earth is, so we never se…e it "inside" our orbit. On the other hand, we see the crescent and gibbous phases of the planet Venus, but never the full or new phases, because when Venus would be "new", it's too close to the Sun to be observed - and when Venus would be "full", it's on the other side of the Sun, and not visible!
correction, The moon has 4 main phases, new, quarter, full, and third quarter moon's. You may think using "common sense" that what the other answer was correct, but it was not…. Since the sun only faces one side of the moon, only one side of the moon is lit up. That side faces the sun. On earth people see a new moon as a dark moon because the half that is lit faces the sun and away from the earth making a moonless sky. The Quarter moon is when the moon is at a 90 degree angle from the sun. This is seen from the earth as a one-half moon; you are only seeing a quarter of the spherical surface of the moon, thus getting the name Quarter moon. Then the full moon. A full moon occurs when the moon is behind the earth, when we see the full lighted face of the moon. You might think the earth's shadow will cover the moon, but the moons orbit around earth is off axis from the earths orbit around the sun, about a 5 degree slant. This 5 degree slant lets the light hit the moon without being blocked by the earth. Third Quarter is the same as I already explained for Quarter, only on the other side of earth. Hoped this helped.
About 29 and 1/2 days.
It takes the moon about one month to go through it's 8 phases.
it takes about one month for the moon to complete all phases
It goes through phases because as it orbits the sun we see the side the sun is shining on. When Earth, Venus, and the Sun are lined up, Venus is black
27.3 days exactly. 1 month
it takes about a month to get back to New Moon

In The Moon
The light of the moon - is reflected sunlight. The 'phases' happen because of the way the moon orbits the earth. During its orbit, the earth casts a shadow on the moon - blott…ing out part of the suns rays. This creates the different phases.
Okay, it says that it "appears to go through phases" because we know that the moon has no light of its own, but it reflects the light of the sun. But since the earth revolves …and rotates and so does the moon (revolve around earth and slightly rotate), the moon looks as though it is going through "phases"-- different sizes of crescents. But actually, it's the side that the sun shines facing earth that is playing tricks. As the moon revolves Earth, Earth can only see the part that is facing Earth and is illuminated.

saturn and mars can sometimes be visible
There is no known or scientifically accepted "gay phase," however, it is completely normal for a teen to become curious about things such as homosexuality, although it mea…ns absolutely nothing. It's just a part of pubescence.
