Halfway between the New Moon and the Full Moon, we have the First-Quarter Moon. Right after that New Moon, the light begins to build. Remember, the Moon itself has no light of her own; she’s reflecting BACK what the Sun is revealing. This is why the Moon requires downtime, darkness, no peopling… she gets quite a workout holding space for all of the Sun’s righteous fire.
At the First-Quarter phase, the Moon has built up energy she’s READY to show off. She is pushing against the Sun (their relationship is an astrological aspect called a square, which is all about the pressure of pushing against CREATING something new; think a diamond out of coal) and there’s a bit of striving to succeed, when it comes to the collective vibe.
This is a good time to schedule things that require you to shine at what you’re good at… in service of what needs to shine MORE. Think “fairy godmother” energy. Think stage manager who rocks under pressure. Think Beyoncé’s team of stylists during a concert.
Growth is pretty evident during this phase, but it’s not only yours. That space you made for this growth during the Crescent Moon is being filled up now. And we’re just getting started!
