First Quarter Moon: Keywords for the First Quarter phase are: action, expression, growth, breaking away. It is the ti8me in a lunar cycle to take the initial action necessary to achieve your goal by expressing your needs and desires. FEEL & MOVE. Make phone calls. Write letters. Dance. Act now.
Water Meditation: The moon is a watery sign, so this can be a good time to meditate upon water.
When the Moon is in Pisces emotional life is more introverted and intuition is at its height and psychic
energy is powerful. Remember that there are no such thing as 'wrong emotions'. Your feelings whatever they are, are yours, and are not easy to control. However, what we can control is how we express our feelings and whether we let them get in the way of our lives. To help us it is often a good idea to take a little time to explore our feelings, to 'wallow' in them as our mothers may have said.
Reserve the bathroom for a quiet time when you will not be disturbed. Decorate it attractively, with blue candles, incease or burning oils, and perhaps even flowers. Run a warm bath and add a few sprigs of Lavender, Thyme, Chamomile and Jasmine; tie them into a clean flannel bag if you don't want bits. Also add about 1/2 teaspoonful of blue food coloring to the water. Take with you 2 palm-size stones, one dark and one light in color. Completely immerse yourself 3 times. Then take the stones, one in each hand. Close your eyes and think through the things you feel strongly about in your life. As you hold the stones, place the negative parts in the dark stone and the positive in the lighter colored stone. After you have filed your emotions in this way immerse yourself 3 more times. Later, place the light stone in a prominent place, and bury the dark one deep in the ground to take away the negativity.
