29 AUGUST 2017, SAGITTARIUS
An influx of new vision and inspiration keep the fire energy moving at this 1st Quarter Moon in Sagittarius, especially in deeper ways relating to the unfolding of what is most precious to you. Following on from the inspiring Leo Total Solar Eclipse New Moon last week, this Qtr Moon in fiery Sagittarius is in a fire grand trine, involving Saturn and Black Moon Lilith also in Sagittarius, plus North Node, Mars and Venus in Leo, as well as Uranus in Aries! Impulsivity, spontaneity and the high creativity of fire are in full flow. Quarter Moons bring a burst of energy in and of themselves in a month’s cycle, so this energy burst, ignited at the New Moon Eclipse in Leo, is amped up. The energy is optimistic, buoyant and passionate. What did you feel most excited about at the New Moon Eclipse in Leo a week ago? Continuing to brainstorm this helps you find your next moves, and when clear on them, this 1st Quarter Moon gives the chance to take things further. Mercury is in its last week of being Retro, so caution is still advised – a fire sign Quarter Moon after a fire sign Eclipse might bring some challenges, particularly going too fast or inadvertently overlooking needed steps. Mercury Retro gives the chance to go back over any missed steps, and this whole week offers the opportunity to work out how to keep going quickly, but not too quickly for your situation… not lingering and dawdling, but also not speeding way too fast.
