This quarter moon follows the New Moon in Libra. The first quarter is when we decide what we will take with us from the New Moon into the rest of the lunar cycle. What did we get right? What needs revision? First quarter phases clarify our plans. Get ready for a Full Moon in Aries on Oct 20. This is when we will see the results of our chosen path.
Capricorn speaks to the systems and infrastructure which govern our lives. If you’re like me, you have a lot of issues with our global systems and governments. You see that they are flawed and in need of revision. It is easy to conflate the archetype of Capricorn with this patriarchal mess but we need to remember who Capricorn really is. He is a builder and architect and he can tap into his earthen power at any time – awaken from this spell – and rebuild from the ruins.
Work/government/bureaucracy is the site of conflict at this moon phase. With the Sun in Libra, it’s about the people involved. It’s about respect and understanding. This moon phase is a cold, hard look at the way we interact with one another.
You will find yourself working with other people at this quarter moon, somewhere somehow. No matter what, you’re bound to get wrapped up in something unpleasant. We’ve been here before. This is nothing new and yes, it’s happening again.
Let’s meet in a different place, one that is neither polarizing nor vicious. I have seen how it can be. There are rare light-beings wandering these hillsides. They are the mossy folk with virescent eyes. Follow them, clasp hands beneath the starry tree. Leaves fall silently all around.
This quarter moon last year coincided with the devastating decision on Breonna Taylor’s murder. In my personal life, it coincided with a total loss of faith in my work. In all ways and on all levels, we lacked support. We waded through stress and more stress. We lacked mutual understanding. We lacked solid ground. We lacked common sense. Where was the moral decency? Where is it now?
strength ~ conviction ~ earth magic ~ rebuild ~ revitalize ~ reframe
This moon phase squares not just the sun, but Mars in Libra too. This will test our ability to remain calm. The good news is that we will have no problem being assertive. Capricorn will help us ground down and sort through our thoughts.
