The Waxing Crescent Moon

To Be by Man Ray.jpg

The moon is in Virgo today. It’s also in the waxing crescent phase, a building phase marked by enthusiasm, forward energy and hope[1].

What’s building for you? What are you excited about?

With four planets in water signs right now, we’re all feeling a lot right now. We may not be able to verbalize or concretize all our potential yet. But it’s there and it’s building.

What can you do about it today? First, take some time today to tune out the world and tune into yourself. Try to feel love and power from something bigger than you. Try to hear what that loving presence would tell you. And do a ritual to mark the message you get. Write it down, plant or water a seed or a flower, even take a bath. Just honor and mark the moment in some way so that you’ll remember it’s there and you’ll remember to nurture it. If you already know your goal and want to work toward it today, go for it. Virgo energy can humble us, so try not to judge your results yet. Just keep going.

And as always, if you think I can help, please ask.
