The First Quarter Moon rises in the early afternoon and sets around midnight. Astrologically the Moon appears square to the Sun. She is visible from the time she rises until she sets. The First Quarter Moon is  the GROWTH phase. Roots go deeper, stems appear and leaves form as she creates a new strong body. Those who are born during the first quarter phase live a full active life - old structures are cleared away providing room for new development. Keywords for the First Quarter phase are: action, expression, growth, and breaking away. It is the time in a lunar cycle to take the initial action necessary to achieve your goal(s) by expressing your needs and desires. FEEL & MOVE. Make phone calls. Write letters. Dance. Act now. 

"I seek my prize,
board room and deli,
I'll not be tempted by Machiavelli.
For Witches' rules have got my back
and Power keep me right on track."
[From "Seasons of the Witch" datebook] 

Moon in Capricorn - brings planning magick and takes your ideas and gives them form and hope. We can tap into the inner wisewoman - ask how form, ritual, organization or tradition can serve. Trim, prune, plant slow-growing seedlings and make sure you and your garden  have enough water. Remember this 'garden advice' is a metaphor for any project you want to nourish.  This moon transit concerns leadership issues, security, responsibilities, the need to be recognized desire to create environment, time to take of business, deal with alternative healing for your body and intensification of your powers of concentration.
   After Sagittarius' expansiveness, now we feel contraction and a time to pay attention to our needs for security, duties, obligations, drives and ambitions. It's a good time for setting and achieving goals, 'going for it' materially as now we feel persistent and ambitious.
   Capricorn brings a desire to create environments and energy is slowed down. Be careful to avoid insensitivity to others, and stay out of negative and pessimistic mind sets that will only drag you down. Takes this moon transit to deal with your material plane, especially if you have neglected it too long. Do non-traditional healing as Capricorn is the sing of the medicine woman. Moon in Capricorn is the best time to work magick for organization, ambition, recognition, career and political matters. Healing rituals for the knees, bones, teeth and skin are also done at this time.

Woden's Day - Mercury Day - the Day of Communication and Connection... Today there are Major magickal energies for 'Flying' be the void of course and after the moon moves into Capricorn the are Major magickal energies for Politics and Negotiations and minor magickal energies for divination, and elemental magic.

Healthy Witch Tip for the Day -  Turn off the TV.. Scientists at the University of Massachusetts found that people who watch TV during a meal consume or average 288 more calories than those who don't eat with the tube on.

(A Daily Witch declares: Make phone calls...take
Quite possibly Gemmama read your "A Daily Witch" before I did today? My grandmother is across the pond, paying a dear visit to a dear friend. But she stood still her time, whilest away, to put a serious call into me early this morning to mention of a special wishticket that to me, she posted days ago (that of which should arrive shortly!). "Please do watch for the mail carrier, who will bring you urgent, timed and timely news," she happily and then near pure~joyously alerted me. Gemmama hinted what was to come from this "ticket" would be wonderful changes and opportunities for self-expression and growing, if and only if I act immediately upon her postal notice!

Cellar Door, who says thank you once more for your luminous insights.

You know, I too am truly amazed at how lunar timings often are right there in our faces if only we become aware and connect the dots. Its makes a believer out of me. Only just this morning in the early hours (after romping through the dark yard with my little hound of hell while she took care of business) I had a Capricorn inspiration of clearing up some of the messes I've been leaving lying around. You know the kind, piles of papers here and there interfaced with books. I am sitting here now so proud of myself - a fairly cleaned off desk top and no longer books stacked on the floor and it is only 7:30AM Yea for me!!
