How to Work with the First Quarter Moon Energies.

sproutingHappy First Quarter Moon.

It’s time to check-in on our goals of the new moon and take some action, plan the steps and move it forward.  It’s time to build the momentum outward, pushing our way through the drudges of the soil and letting our wings of branches sprout upward through the muck.  It’s a time when we will feel perhaps some “failures”, obstacles or challenges are we start to move our intentions out into the world.  We will hit snags and rocks, bumps and weeds.  Just keep on, the vision becomes clearer as we sprout out and find the shape, the correct path in the soil.  It is a zoning in as we push out, clarity and fruition can begin to emerge as we take action here.  So keep dredging on!!!

“Issues emerge that require taking action or making adjustments. This can be considered a stage of conflict, but also of building. Things are beginning to take off and to gain momentum. The First Quarter Moon is a time for taking action, not for contemplation or reflection. Keywords: Clearing; Action; Building” 

Astrograph writes:  (

“In this phase, the Moon is waxing and square the Sun. This represents the time in the planting cycle when the organism puts out its leaves and branches, a time of great growth…During this phase, you are a willful builder of new structures for yourself and society, and characteristically exert the utmost effort in order to achieve your goals of bringing new forms into reality, even in the face of resistance. This move forward must inevitably be accompanied with struggle, for the old will rarely yield gracefully.”

Take a peak at your new moon intentions, how are you working on them?  Plan the steps and take one, two and three now. It’s that time.  Make a step by step to do list to help you get there and don’t be distracted by the wrong doors, wrong roads, or wrong choices.  It is all part of the process.  I recently submitted an article that was one of my fave’s… deep… raw… and stirs the emotions.  It hits you where you don’t want to look.  And it was not only rejected, it was met with a lot of emotional reaction and upset that I submitted it.  But it was my expression, it was real, raw, and painful and even though it could create some discomfort, it was truth and it was mine.

Now I could feel disheartened, beat up, even doubtful about my writing but something is different this time…I am not. I believe it was not the right trek through the soil.  It simply wasn’t the right door for the expression at hand.  So here I go trekking on, marking my way, detailing the trail through the sticky, dark mud with a stronger plan and clearer direction.  My branches desire to pop up and bud.  This is tough for me as a dreamer and visionary but necessary in this phase of the game.  We must balance the dreaming with the action to see it manifest and this is the time during the moon when we set motion to the game plan, we start moving the ball forward.

So dream on and plan forward on this First Quarter Moon.  Step it out and see your buds sparkle in the sun!

Join me, make those daily goal lists, action plans and concrete details.  Let’s do this.

Let us not forgot out daily Ritual of Joy with a dance of joyful prayer to the universe…just let your body move how she wants and needs to…shake it up, stomp it out, open your wings, stir and circle your energy and sensual curves.  Whatever it is dance your joy like it were an expression of gratitude to the universe and Grandmother Moon.  Perhaps you are moving through the soil and reaching out your sprouts, let this be your dance!!  I’ve been Pink-ing it up with my dances… 🙂

  1. Thank you! I wanted to follow up because I have been banging my head against the wall for a bit and now I am ready to move forward. Some big decisions that will unlock a new reality. I am sorry that your article didn’t get picked up. It’s probably too special at this moment to give away.

    Something didn’t get picked up for me too so it must not be the right time or situation yet.
