First Quarter Moon - 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 as we approach the full moon. During the waxing of the crescent moon there is a feeling of purpose and motivation and it seems much easier to get things done. Then in the midst of upward surge, it is as though everything stops, but this is hard to pinpoint or even notice immediately because it happens very quietly. It is as though the world takes a deep indrawn breath and pauses. This pause is not necessarily tranquil, and it is certainly not stagnant - zest and excitement are waiting beneath its surface to unfold. Yet there is a feeling of balance held in tension as the moon stands poised to open into fullness.  In the late afternoon and early evening the first quarter moon can be seen as an exact, her face lit on the right side, and her left side in darkness. The midpoint between new and full has been reached.  Keywords for the First Quarter phase are: action, expression, growth, breaking away. It is the time in a 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.

Moon in Scorpio - The moon's transit through Scorpio is a time of extremes, intensity and heightened sensitivity. It is a good time for focusing and doing psychic work because of the deep emotions and desires Scorpio brings.  Emotional resentments from the past can surface and block your heightened creative energy, so fight urges to be suspicious, secretive and moody. This is a time of regeneration, and cleaning out of emotional debris from the previous lunar cycle. There is great energy to complete things and focus on certain areas that you have found yourself too scattered to deal with in the previous cycle. Moon in Scorpio is the best time to work magick involving power, psychic growth, secrets and fundamental transformations.  Healing for ailments of the reproductive organs are also done during this transit.

Today - Sun Day - there are Major magickal energies for Vigor and there are minor magickal energies for motivation and personal finances... Grab the opportunities to boost your motivation to work on your goals for this lunar cycle.
