First Quarter Moon - The First Quarter Moon (or waxing half moon) rises around noon and sets around midnight. Astrologically, the Moon is 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 shoot up and leaves form as she creates a new strong body. Keywords for the First Quarter phase are: action, expression, growth, and 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. Those who are born in a First Quarter phase live a full live active life - old structures are cleared away providing room for new development.
Moon in Gemini - The Moon in Gemini wakes us up; we lose our concentration, but quicken our communication. The conversation sparkles, our thinking broadens but doesn't deepen. Time to: network, investigate, translate, brainstorm, mediate, prune, edit, explain, and broadcast. So build a web of understanding, absorb new information. This is a time of communication and other means of expression, freedom, adaptability. short journeys, reading or writing, desiring variety and having more than one thing going at once. You may find yourself feeling talkative and/or might want to work with your hands during this moon's transit in Gemini. Towards the end of this transit, when the moon approaches the sign of Cancer (Sunday evening) interactions and communications become more emotional. Moon in Gemini is the best time to work magick for good communication, change of residence, writing, public relations and travel. Healing rituals for ailments of the shoulders, arms, hands, or lungs are also done during this period of time. Those born under a Gemini Moon can talk to anyone, think fast, multi-task, and shift moods with grace, but need to choose depth and focus.
Freya's Day - Venus Day - the Day of Sharing and Relationship ... There are minor magickal energies today for spells/rites for Good Luck.
