Moon's Journey ~ First Quarter

On January 14th the Moon arrives @ her next stop, the first quarter. As we look up to the sky we’ll see approx. half of her light revealed.

It’s time again for the supportive Yang energy to be activated.

Move your body! Keep the energy in flow. Feel, express, “break away” move towards with all of your senses.

This is the time to move beyond contemplation and reflection. It’s a time to step forward with discerning actions that will help you bring your intentions into physical form.

This is a face & phase of growth!


Full Moons may have the greater reputation for inspiring wild or erratic behavior, but at the quarter Moons, there may be even greater tension in the air. Dane Rudhyar called the first and Last Quarter Moons “crisis” times.

We’re invited to clear any obstacles & address any problems that may emerge. This is our time of action!

Step up and out with your projects & intentions. Take actions that will practically serve your realization of the intention you’ve set @ the New Moon.

-Be the builder and creator of your visions.
-Prepare to stand firm and strong as any barriers arise.
-Trust in yourself and be willing to focus your attention & energies towards your intention.

I have a policy at the First Quarter Moon: I try to take at least one consciously courageous act. I do something that scares me. As I summon the courage to go forward, I imagine the lady in the Moon applauding my positive attitude, my instincts for timing, my First Quarter skill. I am cooking the alchemical intention to step out of my cocoon.

For this phase I have pulled the following two cards from Alana Fairchild’s Sacred Rebel Oracle Deck.

Here is a recording with an exert from wisdom offered by these two cards.

What actions will you take to support your intention?
