Astrologically the Moon is square to the Sun. The First Quarter Moon is the GROWTH
phase of the lunar plant. Roots go deeper, stems shoot up and leaves form as she creates
a new strong body. Keywords for the First Quarter 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 the First Quarter live a full,
active life - old structures are cleared away providing room for new developments.

is the time to seek justice, romance, meet, approach, create, beautify, find our core
balance and balance our needs with others. The Moon in a Libra transit highlights the magick
of the dance of inter-relatedness - friendly, romantic and searching for a way to connect.
Libra asks us to treat those around us as equals and make sure our politics and art,
our lovemaking and our networks integrate. Tend to the beauty of the garden, cultivate
but don't plant. Moon in Libra is the best time to work magick involving artistic work,
justice, court cases, partnerships and unions, mental stimulation and karmic, spiritual
or emotional balance. Healing rituals for ailments of the lower back or kidneys are also
done during this period of time. Those born under a Libra Moon are peacemakers, but
need to remember to keep themselves in the equation. They see the beauty and seek
fairness, help us to understand one another.
