First Quarter Moon Phase: take action

Moon in Capricorn

Skill: follow along with the mystery

Negative Imprint: lost, appearance over substance, ignorance, refusing to see, moving on, feeling not good enough

Positive Imprint: intuitive voice, unity, balance, joy, flashes of inspiration, revelations, exposure, new opportunities

As we move into the First Quarter Moon phase today, energy to steady ourselves enters.  The shift from the Crescent Moon to the First Quarter Moon is often felt as a great relief.  Crescent energy always challenges us, so the change to First Quarter is usually welcomed.

Today's energy is super-charged to deliver insight, revelations, and clarity.  This is happening all month long, but it is intensified under today's energy signatures.  Full light is available to see and understand, fitting things into a bigger picture.   If you need to make a decision or are trying to solve/comprehend something, consider the effects on the mind, body, and soul as a whole.

The variance between the way things appear and the way they really are shows out today.  If too much emphasis has been put into the appearance, not the substance, of something, the weakness of it will likely become apparent.

Some of us may experience the past "catching up" with us today.  The energy brings exposure of things that have been hidden away in the past.  Skeletons can come out of the closet.  If this happens, it will ultimately serve to free you and let more of your true self come forward.  The stories are old news and have no place in the future.  They need to go and the universe is moving them out, so hold your head high and take personal responsibility if you experience this.  Your story is your own, but all of ours are filled with ups and downs, trials and tribulations.  And spiritual warriors of the heart have not had it easy.

Today's energy may also present a need to express our voice - say something that needs to be said.  This may come in the form of standing up for ourselves or someone else, voicing an opinion, or speaking our mind.  Commonality will bring people together in support, but it may require someone to be brave enough to step forward first and say what needs to be said.

We are moving toward an intense astrological day on Saturday, October 4.  Mercury will station retrograde, the Sun will square Pluto and oppose Uranus, and the Moon will first oppose Jupiter and then oppose the Black Moon - just to name a few of the aspects!  Today we will get a foreshadowing of that energy between 2:30 pm ET/6:30 pm UT and 8:30 pm ET/00:30 am UT.  The Moon will make conjunction with Pluto during that window today.  This will bring full light to the darkest things.  Wisdom will result so wise owls will be watching.

What does all evidence point to you for you today?  Where is your mystery leading?
