The Last Quarter Moon is the HARVEST phase of the moon plant - the plant gives her life so that others may continue theirs. Keywords for the Last Quarter phase are: realignment, revision, integration, cleansing. It is the time in a cycle to take closing action, to follow-up and complete the activities begun at the New phase. During this phase you become aware of what is and is not working with respect to the achievement of your goal for the cycle. The movement is toward integration. Open to your success. MANIFEST YOUR GOAL. Be responsible.
Moon in Sagittarius - The Moon in Sagittarius gets us moving; it brings cheerful impatience and refreshing honesty. We need wide open minds, souls, and attitudes, but can't sit still. It is the time: get honest, forgive, dance, hike, explore, and connect to the natural world. Moon in Sagittarius brings out our inner-Artemis; we need to roam, to explore in body and in soul. Our curiosity intensifies. Check out untraveled territory and connect with the organic world. You may want to work the soil but hold off on planting. The restless, enthusiastic Sagittarius loves adventure, change and motion. The moon in this sign is a time for philosophy, metaphysics, travelling, studying, and freedom from responsibility. Sagittarius brings the need to feel free of restrictions, and to be spontaneous. During this transit there is a pro civility towards open, honest exchanges. Moon in Sagittarius is the best time to work magick for publications, legal matters, travel and truth. Healing rituals for ailments of the liver, thighs or hips are also done at this time. Those born with a Sagittarius Moon sign came here to explore. They need to learn how to hold still and work through a challenge. They offer us radical acceptance.
Thor's Day - Jupiter Day - the Day of Vision, Spiritual Insight and Expansion....
What Your Moon Sign Conveys -
Your Moon sign describes the automatic, instinctual part of you. It reflects the way you react when you aren't thinking, your knee-jerk responses, your habits, what makes you feel at home, your 'comfort zone.' It is also related to the body, in the sense that the body reacts to our emotions and our sense of security or safety. So the Moon is connected to health, or the kinds of things we need to stay healthy, the therapies to which we respond, the food we like, and so on. The subconscious mind is linked to the Moon, our dreams and most important our intuitions. Your Moon sign determines what sort of intuitions you have and how you are likely to register them and respond to them.
The Moon sign is powerful in small children who are still at the very instinctual stage, and this especially in evidence before they can talk clearly. For instance, a baby with Moon in Sagittarius may be fretful if it cannot stretch and kick, whereas one with Moon in Virgo may get quickly distressed if it is wet or dirty. Little Moon in Taurus may not be able to tolerate the slightest hunger pang. However, our Moon sign isn't something we 'grow out of'. It is true that the influence of our Moon sign can become overlaid by other developing characteristics, but it is always there and continues to be in evidence in domestic situations with our family and close friends, or indeed at any time when we are relaxed or vulnerable.
Our lunar nature is often playful and instinctual and we may have been taught to suppress it. However, if we are to be whole people in tune with our own needs and able to access the natural wisdom of our intuitions, we need to respect that Moon. Reconnecting with our lunar natures can make us healthy, wealthy and wise.
