Wednesday, JANUARY 6
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 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. It’s not the best time to start a significant project, as the decreasing light of the Moon symbolizes descent into unconsciousness. We might begin to finish up the details of whatever we conceived at the last New Moon. We’re arriving at a more mature view of a project or situation.
The Moon spends the day in the sign of Libra, and we’re significantly invested in our relationships, motivated to create a balance. The Moon’s square to Pluto and a Sun-Pluto parallel suggests a tendency for more intensity from our lives and relationships. The need to gain more control over our lives can feel pressing, and we should guard against temperamental behavior and decision-making.
Mars ends its lengthy transit of Aries, entering Taurus today for a stay until March 3rd. We might go to great lengths to protect what’s ours and to build our feelings of security and comfort during this cycle. With this position, we are determined, stubborn, and persistent. Mars in Taurus can be a relatively passive influence but full-on when resisting or defending something! In stark contrast to the impulsive Mars-in-Aries cycle, we pursue our goals by plodding along patiently. We’re looking for long-term satisfaction, although we can be particularly focused on creature comforts.
