First Quarter Moon Phase – Moon in Cancer/Leo
The themes of duty, honor, and protection of higher ideals take the forefront today. We also see where or to what people are dedicated. This is heart energy and it reveals much about the truth of matters. With this, Venus has reached the degree where we are find ourselves testing, gauging, and evaluating things. Since this is Venus, we tend to test, gauge, and evaluate relationships, love, and our ideas about money and attractiveness. Insecurities have a way of cropping up. Let’s handle all of this the best way possible:
- Avoid testing people. Gauging and evaluating are productive, but testing people as opposed to honest dialog is counterproductive.
- Hold to the mission of serving the vision of Sophia. Keep nature close by going outside and connecting with Sophia’s creatures and landscape.
- Provide cover for anyone who is being challenged emotionally. By this I mean just be there for him or her. We tend to think that we have to be able to fix things or provide answers, but really all we need to do is be present.
- Focus on higher ideals. What is your highest ideal? How can you honor that?
Mercury will station retrograde tomorrow. This means we need to back-up important information today or take care of any unfinished correspondence or business. Communications, electronics, and travel go haywire the day Mercury stations retrograde, so plan ahead today. Mercury will be retrograde until St. Patrick’s Day (March 17).
