The first quarter is a time of balance, dynamic balance in fact, but it is fleeting. Once the dark half of the moon begins to fill out, the moment will have passed and energies will quicken again, picking up tension and momentum as the full approaches. But the brief pause is one of the most enchanted stages in the moon's cycle, and it can be used in a positive way to help magickal goals along. The first quarter is a very good time to infuse extra power into the magickal projects begun at the new moon.
This transit of the moon in Capricorn concerns leadership issues, security, responsibilities, the need to be recognized, desire to create environments, time to take of business, deal with alternative healing for your body and intensification of your powers of concentration. But also Capricorn brings energy that is slowed down.
After Sagittarius' expansiveness, now we feel contraction and a time time to pay attention to our needs for security, duties, obligations, drives and ambitions. It's good for setting and achieving goals and 'going for it' materially.
