First Quarter Square Moon
December 26th, 2017
4° 47' Aries
@ 1:20am PST
First Quarter Moons are the midpoint between the seed intentions planted during the previous New Moon and the blossoming of the following Full Moon. They are times of movement and growth. This particular Aries moon and is square to Venus, Saturn, Sun and Lilith all in early Capricorn. It is getting real earthy about now so it is nice to have a little fire to ignite the spark of our grounding.
Saturn ingressed into Capricorn last week and will be trodding there for the next few years. Saturn is building upon the truths found while searching in Sagittarius and is shaping our shit up so that we can all start making "it" happen.
It is time to wisen up to the idea that we are each fully capable of taking charge of our own realities and become leaders of integrity that our collective so desperately needs.
Meanwhile we have Lilith in Capricorn who goes against tradition and will not conform or be bound by the old ways. She is in the same sign as Saturn for the first year of his return home to ensure that during the restructuring of our realities that we confront outdated customs that aren't aligned with the shifting paradigm and bring an end to those that are oppressive and no longer relevant.
The other Goddess in Capricorn just paid a visit to Saturn, bringing about the desire for real and lasting connections in our lives.
Venus in Capricorn is about attracting constructive and solid relationships that contribute to building your kingdom. It is a great time to evaluate the relationships in our lives and figure our whether they are cornerstones in our development that support the shaping of self or if they are weak pebbles in our foundation that could crumble at the slightest sign of stress.
After this Venus will join Lilith on the 29th, making it even easier to discern if you are in a healthy place of relating or not. You can stay shrouded in conventional ways of relating that unhealthily project security onto others, or to step into the power of being secure yourself and meeting others halfway.
Mercury went direct in Sagittarius on the Winter Solstice and will be in shadow, covering old territory until the 10th and will join the entourage in Capricorn on January 11th.
Mercury's first order of business was to once again square Neptune in Pisces, perhaps leaving us a bit bewildered by our recent retrograde period and what it was all about. There is no need to force your brain into any mental acrobatics quite yet, integration is underway and it is okay to breathe for a moment and let the lessons sink in. Mercury will trine the lunar nodes just before the Gregorian New Year on the 29th, giving us some fresh ideas of how to move forward in 2018 with renewed vigor and in a clear headspace.
Mars in Scorpio is also making connections with Neptune on the 27th; encouraging us to go with the current instead of against it. It is important to adjust your course from time to time in order to navigate the intensity of life. When you hit points of resistance, use the flow not the force. The fixed signs always proceed into the mutable. Get on board with the divine plan and cruise!
