First Quarter Moon in Libra ☽ July 19, 2018

Thursday, July 19 at 12.53pm PST

The Sun in Cancer squares the moon in Libra. The moon will rise at noon, peak at dusk and set at midnight. Quarter moons prompt definitive change. They represent a turning point.

Libra is the sign of scales, representing equality, balance, compromise and true love. It is Libra who transforms us from angry, headstrong individuals to peaceful diplomats. Moon phases in Libra speak to our social life. This usually, but not always, involves romantic partnerships. If you’re single, this means friends, classmates or co-workers. As the heart bobs and dips in a supernatural ocean, seek comfort. Spend time with those who make you feel at home. Exhale into the sweetness of intimacy. Take shelter from uncertainty, for this is not where Libra’s treasure lies.

At this quarter moon, Cancer and Libra stir our emotional anatomy, cultivating seeds of love in delicate places. I see reunion and tender tears of joy. I see humans embracing. Reconnect with old friends and family. See them as an enchanted mirror, reflecting your own sparkles. Speak with starry eyes, communicate your plans, dreams and feelings. May your loved ones listen sincerely, then offer precious grains of wisdom. May they remind you of who you are, and in so doing, illuminate your needs. Let yourself be guided. Relax into the music of familiar voices, the chirps and warbles which lulled you in childhood, or wherever you felt safe and loved.

Some notes from my journal a few years ago: Start at the beginning – with kindness – and go from there. Don’t complain about lack of connection; you can always find one. Meet where you are, grow love here, see if you can ascend together to the next level.

Luna enters Scorpio on the same day, late at night. The moon is waxing, gathering momentum for fullness. This quarter moon is building toward a big lunar eclipse on July 27. Between these two phases, Leo season and Mercury Retrograde will begin! The lunar eclipse is going to be electric, full of the unexpected.

When the moon is in Libra, it is a good time to plant, eat and pick flowers. In yoga, try balancing poses. Focus on the sacral chakra in meditation. Libra is known for her excellent style, so put on your finest. Create a cozy atmosphere with art, music, libations and a meal for everyone to share. Revel in the glory of laughter and storytelling! Give and receive with an open heart! And I’ll see you on the dance floor! Keep the connection burning bright with healthy conversation and Libra Yoga. To find your personal moon sign, click here.
