The vacillating Sun in Libra squares the sturdy moon in Capricorn. This is the first moon phase of the Libra solar cycle. Quarter moons clarify and prompt definitive change. The first quarter moon rises at noon, peaks at dusk, and sets at midnight all over the world, no matter your time zone. Luna initially transitions from Sagittarius to Capricorn on the day of the quarter moon and will stay here until late on Sep 25 before moving on to Aquarius. The moon is waxing, gathering momentum. On Sep 30, Luna transitions from Pisces to Aries for the full moon.
Libra and Capricorn are both cardinal signs. When cardinal constellations work together, it is time to get centered and (re)aligned. Capricorn is here to heal the collective imbalance between masculine and feminine energies on our planet. Fear ebbs, adrenaline rises. Inhale strength, inhale courage.
Work is often the site of conflict at this moon phase. With the Sun in Libra, it’s really about the people with whom we work. It’s about communication, independence, and self-respect. It is a cold, hard look at the way we interact with one another, and yet it is wreathed in prosperity and abundance. Here lies proof of our efforts: these fields of green and purple, deep satisfaction flowing from weathered, love-stained hands, plucking stalks and buds in golden dusk.
You will find yourself working with other people at this quarter moon, somewhere somehow, maybe out in the woods or in the city. No matter what, we’re bound to get wrapped up in something unpleasant. We’ve been here before. This is nothing new and yes, it’s happening again. The same archetype looms into view.
Many personas are not working for me or anyone anymore. My best advice is to get up and leave if one of these authoritarian Capricorn archetypes rears its head. In truth we can meet in a very different place, an androgynous one where the spectrum is orgiastic, not polarizing or vicious. I have seen how it can be. There are rare light-beings wandering these hillsides who will shelter you. They are the mossy folk with virescent eyes. Follow them, clasp hands beneath the starry tree. Leaves fall silently all around.
With Saturn in Capricorn right now, we get an extra boost. Having trouble finding your voice? No problem, Saturn will capitalize on our innate assertive powers. Feeling overwhelmed, timid, uncertain? Saturn helps us ground down and sort through our thoughts. If someone is making you uncomfortable, say so. Be strong. Rise up with dignity. Trust in the unseen. Walk with confidence.
