First Quarter Moon
“Greek Spiral, Cappadocia, Turkey” photograph by Terry Tempest Williams
This week, we move into the First Quarter Moon of this SolLunar cycle, which means it’s time to set things in motion. Thank you beloved Terry for sharing your photograph of this compelling spiral. The spiral can be a fitting symbol for these times. Do you feel this awakening spiral of evolution in the circumstances of your own life, or do you, at times, feel you are spiraling out of control? Life can be a mix of both of these interpretations on any given day.
The spiral is an ancient symbol for so many things. Do some research or meditation on the spiral. I personally relate to the spiral as the merging of my physical body with my Lightbody. I feel the spiral of my ascension of my physical body as it gets Lighter, and I also feel the spiral of my descending spiritual Self getting more physical and embodied. I hope that makes some sort of sense! Essentially the infinity sign symbolizes the integration of the ascending and descending spirals. No wonder things can feel a bit disorienting at times as we navigate this historical evolutionary shift affecting every human, all of creation. Yes, it’s that big. Don’t forget you have some level of control of this process and remember to ground yourself when you feel the out of control spiral trying to take charge of you. Consider practices like qi gong, earthing by simple walking, yoga, or lying quietly on the cool green Earth.
Here’s a list of the First Quarter Moon characteristics compliments of my friend/sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza ~ http://www.lunarplanner.com/:
“The First Quarter Moon of each lunar cycle draws an external stimulus to initiate action as we move from the inspirational quarter of the lunar cycle into the action quarter. Now is the time to drop all hesitation and take the steps to move forth on what you were inspired about. The inspiration is now gone, it is time to now participate in trust and knowing. Remember, the flower that is about to burst forth from the bud is not yet visible. Trust in the process. Demonstrate this trust in physical action and you will be supported. This time is stressful or traumatic only if action is ignored. What you are putting together now is the groundwork for the manifestation of the theme. Simply, this phase is a time to work.”

Please note: I make my posts according to the Lunar cycles as a way of helping you work with the natural flow of time and energy. Also, I base my interpretations and predictions on the true sidereal astronomical alignments.

Wed June 24
First Quarter Moon: This alignment takes place just as you might be greeting the day. The productive Virgo Moon makes a manifesting square to the energized Sun/Mars conjunction in multitasking Gemini. Chances are you will get check many things off your life-list today. Remember there’s no need to rush through the day. Take pauses, long breathes, then move onto the next thing at hand. This way you will not feel depleted at the end of today, but energized by your accomplishments.
Moon in Virgo/North Node opposite Vesta in Pisces/South Node: This aspect carries the feeling of being freed up from an old focus/loss/grief that has been following you around for too long and gives you a nudge to make a conscious focused effort to move on. Your future life is beckoning so sense all you still want to be and do.
Thu June 25
Moon in Virgo sextile Venus/Jupiter in Cancer: This lovely aspect creates a feeling of a helping-hand showing up in regards to a home/garden project or in helping to plan an upcoming service for a beloved who has passed. That’s because we still have Jupiter completing the year long transit through sidereal Cancer ~ the passing of our Elders and also many other wise souls who completed their time, this time, on Earth.
Moon in Virgo squares Pluto then opposes Uranus: The organized, health-conscious Virgo Moon activates the seemingly never-ending Uranus/Pluto square that is still rapidly pushing us in the evolutionary spiral of awakening. On a day like today, you can get your next insight about what that means for you in terms of making healthier choices that support your positive growth. Or you might get a nudge from the physical dimension to pay attention so as to avoid spiraling out of control.
Venus in Cancer trine Pallas Athene in Scorpio: You might receive positive financial news about a potential loan to fix up your home, or feel a desire to re-organize a space so it’s both beautiful and efficient, or a source of unexpected funding for a creative project gracefully lands at your door.
Fri June 26
Moon in Libra trine Sun/Mars in Gemini: This fleeting feel-good trine sparks plenty of harmonious discussions and even peace-making all around.
Sat June 27
Sun in Gemini squares Lunar Nodes: The North and South Node of the Moon are conceptual points in the zodiac that indicate where we’ve come from (South) and where we are headed (North). The infinitely curious, friendly Gemini Sun is helping you turn a corner from what you focused on the past three months, to where you might want to be three months from now. Gemini also rules travel, reading, investigating, and the technological world. This is a good day to make travel plans, research a new tech tool that will support your future goals.
Sun June 28
Sun in Gemini square Vesta in Pisces: Vesta is all about being extremely focused or dedicated to a cause. She is also the goddess of hearth and home, and ruler our sacred sexuality. A complex archetype indeed. So with today’s illuminating Sun in a decision-making square to Vesta, any one of the above aspects might require some attention, encouraging you to inhabit a new way of being. The blessing of change, always a blessing.
Moon/Saturn in Scorpio square Juno conjunct Regulus: This aspect feels quite intense as I attune to what it possibly might mean for you readers. Juno is the ruler of our core relationships, be that a marriage partner, a business colleague, a dear friend. Today’s alignment of Juno with Regulus, the royal star dubbed the heart of the Lion, ensures the need to speak more honestly than ever before about our heart’s truth. In addition, the emotional Moon and serious Saturn in delving Scorpio can bring forth even a brutality of honesty, or that’s how it might feel. This is a turning point kind of day for many.
Mon June 29
Venus in Cancer trine Uranus in Pisces: Out of yesterday’s very honest discussions and realizations, this softer aspect is welcome news and will help integrate the shifts that are taking place within our familial relationships, which can include many others beyond your nuclear family.
Tue June 30
Grand Trine in Water~ Moon in Scorpio/Venus in Cancer/Uranus in Pisces: What a lovely way to end this phase of our current SolLunar cycle in preparation for tomorrow’s Full Moon. This aspect brings together what we need emotionally ~ Moon ~ with what we most desire ~ Venus ~ with diversity-appreciating Uranus. Water,the most life-sustaining element on Earth, is the element that allows us to be Beings of feeling and this aspect gives permission for all to connect with their deeper emotional Self.
Sun in Gemini trine Neptune in Aquarius: Neptune is the ruler of the dreamtime, our spiritual essence, our imagination. This aspect will happen overnight so you can expect an important dream tonight, if you so desire it, or you might feel uplifted about your life in general.
