The Waning Last Quarter Moon rises at midnight, peaks at dawn, and sets at noon all over the world. Each year when the sun is in Libra, the new moon will always be in Libra; the full moon will always be in Aries; and the quarter moons will always be in Cancer and Capricorn. These geometric relationships in the zodiac are fixed and unchanging.
Last quarter moons are turning points or crossroads, clearing the way for the new moon / new lunar cycle. This phase prepares us for the New Moon in Libra on Oct 6.
When the moon is in Cancer, it is a good time to plant, harvest, and eat leafy greens. It is also a good time to get in touch with your emotions.
Libra is the goddess of justice, Cancer the great mother spirit. Moon phases during Libra season are significant in a social sense, bringing change to our interpersonal relationships. These changes are not accidental. They happen because they must, in order to secure peace and comfort in a given environment.
It should be noted that harmony comes at this moon phase only if and when the environment is right. We must look beyond the surface of conversations and momentary reconciliation to see if a given environment will provide longevity, whether its foundation is built to last. Time near water or the ocean can help clarify these important questions. Speaking with elders and learning from their gentle wisdom will also help.
At this moon phase a couple years ago, my partner and I traveled back to our Midwestern childhood roots. From the top of Sleeping Bear Dunes, we gazed down, quietly observing Lake Michigan as she lapped peacefully on the shore. All around us, a sea of rainbow leaves and dark tree trunks stood starkly, streaked with rain water. We munched on wild grapes and smoked herb with nothing but the wind filling our ears. I hope this peaceful image can calmly guide your decision-making.
This moon phase will square not just the sun, but also Mars in Libra and Chiron Retrograde in Aries. We need to be very thoughtful in communication. Please also be advised that Mercury will already be retrograde in Libra at this time.
