Focus on 4th Quarter Moon & the rest of the week
Earlier this week we had Mercury turn direct and of course to that I say, "thank gawd." Hopefully, stuff that got wound up tight for the last three weeks is rewinding positively in your life. One thing that is tricky with this Sag lunar phase is that the New Moon was clouded by the Mercury retrograde. While we were battling all the nonsense that comes up during a retrograde some of us may have lost sight of the purpose of the Sag lunar cycle. Finding our visions for our future.
Now today, (Saturday at 7:47pm 12/17 until 12/21 we will have the last quarter moon.
This is the final phase where we do actions based on the seeds we planted on New Moon. I find around this phase that the new moon feels so far away. In this case Sag New moon was the day after Thanksgiving. How far away does that feel?
What goals and visions have come up since then that speak to your future? Have you had anything come up that emphasizes a more authentic you? Or have you had a glimpse of something that you want more of in the coming days, months years? Did you have a day that was relaxed? Did you have coffee with a friend you have not seen in a long time? Did you complete a project that gives you much pride? Did you visit a place that you can't stop thinking about and wonder what it would look like to move there? Did you disconnect from disruptive situations and realize, 'wow that was easier than I thought. Did you see a real opportunity that could be a genuine asset in your future and did you move on it? What wind blew in and is guiding you?
Now, on this final quarter moon, we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense. And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action. It is a time for living “The serenity prayer”
God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.
And on this particular last quarter moon there is focus on:
What actions need precision, detailed oriented work? How can that work support expanding your world? What are you working on that needs micromanaging? Did you plant seeds on new moon that need more refined actions now? Are there any holes that need fixing?
Then during the week:
12/18: Venus/Saturn: Accent on restrictions and loss and the unloved. Money is crunched.
12/19: Sun/Saturn: Structures and building upon solid foundations.
12/20: Venus enters Aquarius http://cafeastrology.com/articles/venusaquariuscompatibility.html
