This morning, the Last Quarter Moon is exact, when the Sun in Libra forms a square to the Moon in Cancer. The Last Quarter Moon phase points to a 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 and come to a point when we need to sort out what works for us–and what doesn’t. This prepares us for next week’s New Moon when something new is born once again. It’s not the best time to start a major project, as the decreasing light of the Moon symbolizes a descent into unconsciousness. It’s time to begin finishing up the details of that which was conceived at the last New Moon.
Mercury forms a sextile to Saturn today, promoting a deliberate and efficient approach to the world around us. We see the benefits of getting organized, making lists, attending to details, and making sound judgments and decisions. We tend to have a clear frame of mind and more patience and common sense under this influence. It’s also an excellent time to communicate with those in authority and to be taken seriously, in general. We might make connections with people or information we need to advance our goals today.
