The First Quarter Moon


The First Quarter Moon is sometimes known for highlighting obstacles and offering us challenges.


This phase of the Moon happens when the Moon and Sun are at a 90 degree angle to each other in the sky. This is called a square aspect in astrology.


We can see one half of the Moon illuminated at this time, sometimes called the half Moon.


When we are presented with obstacles or roadblocks on our manifesting journey, it’s often one of two things that are happening.


Firstly it could be that you are not really in alignment with the intention you set. The First Quarter Moon is asking you to really look at your intentions, are they being set from a place of expectation of how others think your life should look?


On the other hand, these challenges could be simply asking you to reaffirm your commitment to the manifestation. If everything was just handed to us really easily, it wouldn’t feel as joyful and magical when we achieve our goals right? The Universe just wants to check that what you say you want, is indeed what you want.


Because manifesting is a co-creation with the Universe, the ritual for this moon is to set yourself up with an action list. What can you do to push you closer to your dreams and desires? Is there an event you could attend, do you need to press publish on your website? What action can you take to show the Universe you are ready to meet half way?
