Summer has given me space to sit with myself in a deeper way than I’d ever been able to before the summer. I’ve been able to tuck in and work more diligently through my Lunar Apothecary course and revitalize a practice of sitting intentionally with the moon as she moves through her cycle. She is in the First Quarter phase this weekend, half-lit in meticulous Virgo as she waxes into fullness.
Now is not the time to look to the destination but your steps in the journey. The First Quarter in Virgo brings with her the energy of attention to detail. Pay special attention to your work energy space at this time. This is a perfect time to pay attention to how you plan to implement your goals- all that sometimes dull minutia that nevertheless makes all the difference in the end.
The waxing moon calls up persistence, helping you move through the new and challenging by activating your own inner strength of will. I think of the 9 of Wands energy reinforced by The Chariot. Meditate on the ways The Chariot guides you through the 9 of Wands’ call to task. If you’ve been floundering, now is the perfect time to root back into your power.
