Waxing Moon Half-Lit in Virgo20 Jun 2018, by moon&sky in
— nourishing pause & magical moments
Today’s first quarter Moon occurs on the last day of Gemini Sun. Moon is in Virgo at half-lit Moon exact, but moves into Libra shortly thereafter. Tomorrow Sun moves into nurturing Cancer AND it is Solstice, the day of longest light in the north, and longest dark in the south. Yes, things are shifting. Magical moments.
In Virgo, Moon highlights health and the practical aspects of well-being. In Libra the focus is on peaceful and equitable relations. Together with Moon half-lit and Solstice tomorrow, ‘balance’ is the keyword and unifying theme. Feminine energies, grounded Earth and flowing Water, support us in stillness and in motion (7 planets in Earth & Water signs).
We are called to pause (Moon half-lit) and move inward (Neptune now retrograde). It is a time for feeling into Spirit and inner wisdom. A time to be soothed and nurtured at the oasis (Cancer Sun). A time to recommit to the heart truth of our knowing (Solstice). Now, and throughout the summer (north)/winter (south), we are encouraged to look within to discover new resources; focus on what brings joy; and choose to enrich Life in all ways (strong and long Neptune & Jupiter trine).
At Moon half-lit it is time to pause and
reflect on what you create and cause
Tune to your inner voice strengthened by Bear
Open to Crow Magic to fuel your prayers
Ground with Earth and flow with Water
Enrich love and joy at your altar
Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light
Wishing you a nourishing pause
and loving, joyful insights this Moon
