Light The Way With The First Quarter Moon In Aries

First Quarter Moon at 4°Aries, Tuesday, December 26 at 1:20am PST/4:20am EST/9:20am GMT


It’s activation time. First Quarter Moon in Aries is stirring up your initiative to advance your long-range goals. This is a fertile week phase to forge ahead with the dreams you’ve envisioned in the past month and begin to mold them into manifestation.


All indicators point to a need for an honest and disciplined approach. The current Moon in Aries is ruled by Mars, which is currently transiting in Scorpio. Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto, is currently transiting through Capricorn, which is ruled by Saturn.


Saturn entered Capricorn a week ago. Throughout 2018 and 2019, Saturn and Pluto Capricorn will work together to ensure your focus is unrelenting and even more powerfully expressed. Whatever you’re doing, you’re going to get results. You’ll discover pretty quickly whether your actions are aligned with your intentions.


With Mercury now direct, and the only planet left in Sagittarius, you’re ready to gallop forward with the ideas you’ve been filtering out through a stream of diffused thoughts. You’re ready to focus on your most exciting aspirations.


Do you have a plan?


How are you going to get it done? After a long push/pull planetary emphasis on the sometimes carefree ways of Sagittarius, it’s now time to commit to your future. Make your dreams possible by harnessing your personal plan and bringing the future into your present moment.


Now that Venus moved into Capricorn last Sunday and conjoined Saturn on Monday, close to this First Quarter Moon, you’ve may have noticed how you’re thinking about possible obstacles. Maybe a winter storm stranded you, or you recognized a limitation in a partnership.


If you feel your dream will be too difficult, too expensive, too impractical or somehow not feasible, trust that it’s time to get started and move through the obstacles as they arise. The cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn hold the potent energy of beginnings. Sun, Venus, and Saturn in Capricorn urge you plan for the best outcome and Aries is pushing on the accelerator.


Nothing’s really holding you back. Get clear on what you want this week and begin the new year prepared for powerful insights that will support your instincts and help you breakthrough to your next level of growth.


You’re finally getting out of your own way and paying full attention to what really matters to you.


Exercise for the week: Pick 3 goals you want to complete in 2018. Think about what excites you about each of these 3 goals. Now think about some of the obstacles that you control that may keep this goal from moving forward. (Pluto in Capricorn) What are the solutions to these obstacles? (Saturn in Capricorn) Write out each of the 3 goals as if they have already happened. (Moon in Aries)
