The Sun in Libra squares the moon in Capricorn. The moon will rise at noon in the north, peak at dusk and set at midnight in the south. Quarter moons prompt definitive change. According to CafeAstrology, quarter phases represent a “crisis of consciousness.”
This moon phase precedes the Supermoon in Aries. Look back to the Last Quarter in Libra from the first week of January 2016. This was the reversal stage – Sun in Capricorn, Moon in Libra. T’was a time of heartache. Libra arrived just before the New Moon in Capricorn in a last-ditch effort to detach us from negative energies. Those who resisted, as I did, were torched alive. But we can breathe easy, now comes reconciliation. No more fighting. We’ve learned so much. Rather than dissolving to nothingness, we atone. The end of a redemption song begun long long ago pieces us to wholeness.
Although she appears earlier in the zodiac wheel, Libra is Capricorn’s teacher. Every god needs a goddess counterpart for proper counsel. So allow me to (re)acquaint you with Capricorn: he’s masculine, stubborn, authoritarian, sometimes self-absorbed, but not an enemy.
Oh how we’ve reeled, dropped, clawed and pushed, eyes rolling back. We wonder why we make the same mistakes. But see the golden thread – you needed to be THERE in order to arrive HERE so BE HERE NOW.
If you feel icky themes returning from last autumn and winter, immediately disengage from this lacing and encircling pattern. Yin and yang should be dancing, not wrestling.
Capricorn is a lover conditioned by work. Libra is his Shakti, bathed in experiential wisdom, smiling because she knows every romantic trial and tribulation. Join, be one, clasp hands beneath the tree. Stars fall silently, grains of sand suspended in the void.
Peace is coming. Learn from the male figures in your life. Revel in forgiveness. Sink into the love of which you are so deserving. Stand in your worth. Ancient mind-chains break without sound.
This moon phase is about healing the feminine. Masculine energy fuses with feminine to rehabilitate her, to introduce a side of himself that is not aggressive or traumatizing, but gentle, understanding. Let’s work together. Fear ebbs, true equality shines. Share your power evenly and with great compassion.
