So, the New Moon of last week was all about setting intentions based on aspirations and dreams! Did you do that? I bet it felt good. About a week later, the First Quarter moon appears. But those intentions had better be set strong because the first quarter moon is when we might meet up with things that we had not prepared for.
Just so you know, it is not a quarter moon in appearance but a quarter of the moon between the New and the Full moon. This confusion can also be seen in what the first quarter moon represents. Often times, we will feel the need to make decisions quickly. It is a time of action.
The first quarter moon may feel like a time of tension. Because these decisions need to be made quickly, often times people rely on their cluttered thoughts or emotional bias. Rarely will they take time to check in with their soul to get the ‘right’ answer for them. Remember, the soul knows the truth.
So, during this first quarter moon phase if you feel a bit confused and need to make quicker decisions, it’s imperative to quiet down the mind and pay attention to your inner wisdom rather than emotions or even other people!
I’m in the middle of an office move this weekend. I obviously didn’t look at the moon phase calendar when I made that choice! Moves like this require fast decisions to be made. I’m so glad that I created strong intentions last week for this move ~ that and I’ve already for~warned the movers that I will give them answers but will close my eyes to check in with my inner wisdom before giving them answers!!!! Hopefully, the typical confusion of a first quarter moon phase will be mitigated this way!
Did you know what a first quarter moon represented before reading this? Now that you do, how can you use it’s energy to your advantage?
