Just after midnight, the Moon squared the Sun at it's halfway mark between New and Full Moons, at what is known as the First Quarter Moon. This point in the lunar cycle reminds us that any obstacles from the past must be overcome in order for our growing consciousness to continue to move toward fullness during the Full Moon phase. Often, this midway point brings up doubt that once recognized, can be acknowledged then released. Whether released, or not, whatever thought or habit pattern, growth or blockage that you utilize now, will continue to build in intensity throughout this month's cycle.
A Leo Moon brought us to this point, so ask yourself, are you doing what makes you happy? Do you have a plan for moving towards fulfillment or achieving that happiness? Leo is strong energy that often involves having the courage to stand up for ourselves or to take a bit of a risk in self expression. Try not to let the fear of rejection or ridicule stop you from moving toward your bliss! Leo is a Fixed Fire sign that can be dramatic and likes recognition, but shuns being laughed at. If you asked someone in a position of authority to assist you in the last couple of days, and you're awaiting an answer, take heart that whatever is in the best interest of all involved will be what transpires. Dare to hope it goes your way because the time is right!
As we are right in between two eclipses, the Solar New Moon Eclipse on the 9th and the upcoming Full Moon Eclipse on the 25th, the energy seems palpable and anything is possible. The other part of my headline is paying attention to the details and that's because the Moon moved into Virgo early this morning, where it will remain for two and a half days. In this time period, it is important to organize oneself and not to overlook any details that may improve either your health, your immediate surroundings or your plans, especially as they relate to the seeds you planted at the New Moon for improving your financial security.
First Quarter periods remind us to keep removing obstacles for moving ahead. Staying stuck or feeling helpless won't improve your situation. What do you need to do...only you know the answer to that? As you continue to make progress, remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground.
