September 15th, 2010
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.
