First Quarter Moon Phase:  step out, take action

Moon in Libra/Scorpio (2:00 pm ET/6:00 pm UT)

Goddess of Wisdom: Bagalamukhi (Goddess Who Solves)

God of Wisdom: Ian (God of The East)

Skill: look for "guideposts" or "signs" for direction

True Alignments:  preparing and sharing, validation, loosening of rigid structures and limitations, hope for the future, "going through the eye of the needle," transported from one frame of mind to another, heighted awareness and ability to see a bigger picture, loyalty, fidelity

Catalysts for Change: disconnected from the reality of something, unfocused, afraid to venture alone, afraid to act, complacent, always seeking something or someone else, out of touch with the feelings of others, arrogance, power or attention going to one's head, fear of the unknown, changing loyalties, infidelity

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "winter frost in the woods"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "the music of the spheres"

Today's energy is arranged to offer us an opening or opportunity while also providing what is needed for the adventure.

This manifests through situations, circumstances, and things that are changing.  When things change, many feelings emerge.  Feelings of grief or loss about the past, fears about security and survival, and deep disappointment can arise.  We wonder what will become of us.

The Sun is located at the degree of the Sabian symbol "gamebirds feathering their nests."  Under this energetic, we make preparations and make things stronger and more comfortable..  We make and take sanctuary.  We prepare for new life.

The Earth is located at "ten logs lie under an archway leading to darker woods."  Nests, woods, and gamebirds, oh my!  But we are well-supplied.  Ten logs can make a lot of torches to light through dark woods.  The key element of the symbol is the archway.  Archways are gateways.  They lead to other places -- other states of mind, other experiences, other adventures.  Usually they lead to "higher" places.  We focus on the archway, not the darkness.

These themes happen to be the bulk of the discussion last night when I joined Phoenix on his radio show.  Many thanks to the PRR audience and to Phoenix for inviting me.  You can listen to the archive here:

Happy Friday, everyone!  See you tomorrow.
