Today is the Quarter Moon in Taurus!
But it looks like half a moon, not a quarter? What’s that all about?
It appears in the sky as a half moon, but it’s called a ‘Quarter Moon’ because it happens twice in one moon cycle. Once in between the New Moon and the Full Moon, and then again between the Full Moon and the next New Moon.
If the New Moon is considered the start of the cycle (part 1), the first Quarter Moon appears about a week later (part 2), then the Full Moon (part 3) and then the last Quarter Moon (part 4) before the New Moon starts the next Moon cycle. Making 4 quarters of the moon’s cycle.
This Quarter Moon in Taurus is the last Quarter before a whole new Moon Cycle begins.
It brings the opportunities for any final releases we want to make before starting the next moon cycle, with our new intentions and New Moon.
Things may come up that feel tense around this time, in order to bring them to our awareness so we can do one final release of energies that are not supporting the New Moon intentions we set back in July.
Because this Quarter Moon is in the sign of Taurus, it may bring up themes around: insecurities around stability, getting out of our comfort zone.
You are invited to connect to any/all of the 5 physical senses (taste, touch, small, sound & sight) to feel more secure & supported at this time.
It may be encouraging us to find the beauty wherever we are and to let that bring us back into the present moment, back into stillness, calm and peace.
It may be showing us where we are too attached to the physical / material world, and/or our possessions – so we can release the attachment and enjoy the material world appropriately. Realizing it is not separate from the Spiritual, but in fact a powerful way to connect us to higher energies.
