Waxing Moon Half-lit in Sagittarius24 Aug 2020, by moon&sky in
… freedom root, aim, fly …
Under a waxing Moon there’s a pull to action and forward movement (heightened by Mars in Aries). Now half-lit it’s time to pause, ground, find balance and fine tune plans.With Moon in uplifting, free-spirited, warm-hearted, fun-loving, and joyful Sagittarius, everything seems possible.
Moon in Sagittarius brightens moods and tickles us to evoke our sense of freedom. We are encouraged to expand our imaginings, our playfulness and our confidence in Life’s flows. Virgo Sun, however, wants us to focus on order, details and hard work so there is a bit of tension here (no kidding ;)) especially as Sag is really really done with the work and grind. Time to find balance between the need for joyous inspiration and the need to deal with the practical mundane. And, since both Sun and Moon are in mutable signs, it’s time to bring in more spaciousness, adaptability and open-mindedness.
Drawing in the gifts of Sag – freedom, playfulness, confidence, faith – is like a breath of fresh air as we continue to be under Earth-Sky pressures. It’s true, it may be hard to gain traction when things feel weighty and slower than we might like and/or we meet resistance (earth energy + retrograde planets + Mars-Sat square + ongoing Capricorn stellium). Fortunately we have an infusion of courage, confidence and fearlessness (Mars-Aries). We have the opportunity to find new inner strength, refine our desires, and hone our efforts for more purposeful action (Saturn effects). Our mental agility is brought to new levels; we see new possibilities and opportunities more easily; and we can expect bursts of creative energy as well (Merc-Uranus). Practical action, and the tasks of sifting, sorting and discriminating are empowered (Merc & Sun in Virgo). Earthy energy (6 planets in Earth signs) help us to ground and anchor our expansive delight (Sag).
Time to take one small step at a time. Time to feel into the between, breathe and ground balance. Time to hone vision and map the practical actions that are most heart-aligned. Time for both deep rootedness and flights to the stars. Time to take aim and let your arrows fly.
At Moon half-lit ground and integrate
all the wisdom you appreciate
Now is the time to find grace and balance
Time to align with all you would advance
Have faith and trust in all you know
Time to nourish all you’d have flow
Time to clarify, specify and fortify
Time to let your sweet vision arrows brightly fly
Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light
Wishing you strength and ease;
deep Earth & dancing Fires; & the
joy of your glorious vision arrows shining bright in the sky
