Friday, JANUARY 17
The Last Quarter Moon occurs in the sign of Libra this morning, and this phase of the Moon points to a possible crisis of consciousness. After basking in the awareness symbolized by the full light of the Moon at the time of last week’s Full Moon, we disperse our knowledge. We begin to see what works for us–and what doesn’t–in preparation for next week’s New Moon when something new is born again. This is not the best time to start a significant project, as the decreasing light of the Moon symbolizes descent into unconsciousness. It’s time to begin finishing up the details of whatever we conceived at the last New Moon.
Mercury is heading towards a square with Uranus, and today, it is sextile Chiron, semi-square Neptune, and parallel Mars–a highly creative combination. We can have breakthrough ideas and discussions. We can be impatient and scattered or brusque in spots, but we’re discussing and learning from past experiences. We enjoy teaching and growing through our connections. Disorganization or abruptness with our communications is likely, but also a desire to understand and learn from our mistakes.
The Moon continues its transit of Libra until 1:21 PM EST, after which the Moon is in Scorpio. The Scorpio Moon is deeply feeling, passionate, and perceptive.
The Moon is void from 7:59 AM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a square to the Sun), until the Moon enters Scorpio at 1:21 PM EST.
