First Quarter Moon Phase: take action

Moon in Capricorn

Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (Goddess of Form) and Matangi (Goddess of Wind)

Skill: embrace transformation

Negative Imprint: insensitivity, pretense, disregard for others, dependence, naiveté, sacrifice, impulsivity, hysteria, mob mentality

Positive Imprint: charisma, willpower, peace, insight, understanding, commonality, pioneering, utilitarian, power of the voice, expression

Another coronal mass ejection was released from the far side of the Sun yesterday at 9:54 am ET/1:54 pm UT.  The Moon was within one degree of conjunction with the Galactic Center at that time.  The Sabian symbol for this degree is "a flag bearer in battle."  It discusses courage and leadership.

Today's energy brings things into form.  The Mahavidya Shodashi, Goddess of Form and Symmetry, is hard at work realigning our lives toward their true course. She opens possibilities.  So our thoughts, creative projects, and ideas come into better form in our minds and in expression.  It is a day of transformation!

There is a frenzied element to today's energy that can take things out of control or carry them away very quickly.  Wise owls may be called upon to overcome the situation, bring a resolution, or re-establish equilibrium.  Cool heads prevail.

The principle of "like attracts like" is strong today, drawing together people of like mind.  Commonalities open up new potentials.  They also show us that we are not alone.

Today also brings a special element of being able to see very deeply into things in order to understand what is really going on.  Clues about something important are available.  We see through the layers.  This information comes from synchronicities, but especially through encounters with nature today.  Keep your copy of Animal Speak handy for reference.  The natural world speaks its wisdom to us if we are mindful.

One other thing - the past may try to creep in and pull you back.  We tend to look back to "past battles" and linger with them today.  It's useful to look back and learn, but not useful to revive these elements of the past.  Don't stay there too long.  Return to the present moment.

The main thing to remember is that new paths, directions, and opportunities are emerging and ready to take form.  This is exciting!  Embrace the changes that Shodashi is directing.  Help Matangi sweep away what no longer servers you.  Let them transform.
