First Quarter Moon - The age of the moon is 6 to 7 days after the New Moon and the moon is 90-135 degrees ahead of the sun, it rises at noon and sets at midnight. Sunset is the prime time for the waxing Moon. From the time a new moon is sighted until it reaches the full, the cycle is known as a waxing moon. The lunar power constantly increases during this time and as such, it's an ideal time to cast a spell requiring the fulfillment of a request. The waxing moon is for constructive magick, such as love, wealth, success, courage, friendship, luck or health, The First Quarter Moon (or waxing half 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 of the moon plant. 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 lunar 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 during a First Quarter phase live a full active life - old structures are cleared away providing room for new development.
Moon in Capricorn - The Moon in Capricorn inspires our ambitions for good or ill, we just have to be gentle on our soul if we're not these yet. Lead and manage, but do not manipulate or control. This is a time to: build, dig, organize, exercise discipline, work on foundations, make practical progress on a dream or goals. Moon in Capricorn brings planning magick and takes your ideas, giving them form and hope. We can tap int the inner wisewoman - ask how form, ritual, organization or tradition can serve. This transit concerns leadership issues, security, responsibilities, the need to be recognized, desire to create environments, time to take care 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. 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. Take this moon transit to deal with your material plane, especially if you have neglected it too long. Do nontraditional healing as Capricorn is the sign of the Medicine Womon. 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.Those born under Capricorn Moon sign have a strong work ethic, competence, and leadership capacities, but may need to learn to love themselves holding still.
