At the last quarter, the moon rises at midnight, peaks at dawn and sets at noon – no matter your time zone. At this station, The earthy moon in Taurus squares the fiery Leo sun. The moon initially moves into Taurus late on Aug 9. Luna then transitions to Gemini on Aug 12, the day after the quarter moon.
Quarter moons are crossroads. Last quarter moons clear the way for the new moon / new lunar cycle. This phase prepares us for the festive New Moon in Leo!
At this moon phase, we may spend more money than usual, especially on larger items like cars. Leo and Taurus relish the finer things in life. Together they create a bountiful feast in a familiar place. See friends gathered beneath a starry sky, laughing late into the night. Taurus and Leo twinkle radiantly from on high, oozing leisure and pleasure. Here we are playful and childlike, body hot and gleaming.
The highest manifestation of Taurus + Leo is to be fixed snugly in one place, expressing gratitude. Some suggestions for this lovely quarter moon: eat/plant/harvest root vegetables, work outside, garden, sing, clean, beautify your living space.
This quarter moon is a celebration of life. Imagine fierce women at your side; bright, colorful costumes; dancing and singing; bass booming into the wee hours of the morning; fine food and drink; chatting with strangers, sharing smokes.
Whether you make it or let it happen, something’s coming, some inner dismantling, some vital threshing of the floor. Walk with confidence. Inhale rich aromas, paint with the rainbow. In meditation, focus on the heart chakra. Forgive yourself and others. Destroy obsolete internal edifices. Empty out your being. Stay rooted with Taurus Yoga.
