Waxing Moon Half-lit in Virgo

21 May 2018, by Fiona in moon&sky

Welcome waxing Moon Half-lit (exact 1@ 2049 PDT) in Virgo


— mind, balance, presence


Lots of new thoughts and ideas come flooding in with Sun’s move to Gemini – and of course the waxing Moon also opens us to more revelations hirself. Could get a bit ‘heady’ around here (Gemini & Virgo have active minds) and we may find ourselves flying off on flights of fancy (Gemini). Fortunately we are graced with strong Earth energy to keep us in-body and grounded.


Sun and Moon together ask us to devote our mental engagements to improving health, and on-the-ground efforts. Balance and presence is key. Virgo requires discipline and responsibility; Gemini requires freedom to change. Harmonizing and mutually nourishing their needs is what’s on call.


The energy of duality is heightened at this time (Moon half-lit + Gemini Sun) and we are called to look again at all that is opposite – light and dark, masculine and feminine, discipline and freedom, giving and receiving. We are invited to consider the dualistic nature of the world; the lessons to be learned; and the wholeness revealed in that which seems contrary. It is a time of wonder and discovery.


Dark and Light, black and white
Hands in Earth, minds delight


Rooted deep, stretch to the skies
Seek the patterns that surprise


Brilliant rainbows and muted grays
Weave the known and unknown into the days
Time to fully embrace all your wisdom’s ways


Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light


May you feel light-hearted,
deeply Earthed,
& delightfully inspired this Moon
