Since the beginning of this lunation cycle, we have been either hopefully or painfully aware that we have to make some changes, especially in the way we tend to react or respond and as a result, have been adjusting our options in such a way that they serve our self-interests. This is the Leo (self) lunation cycle after all. Therefore, we’ve come to the realization that we can’t no longer idly sit around and wait, but have to do something or we’ll end up in a disadvantageous position or even worse, at the mercy of forces beyond our control. Consequently, we gathered our resources and took the necessary steps to be able to manage these affairs or circumstances more effectively, while using the opportunities and support offered to us to take care of business. Thus, the ‘crisis in action’ that accompanies the First Quarter Moon, challenges us to step up to the game and into our power. This means we have to get our stuff together and put ourselves first so that we can see this through to completion, while keeping our resolve and finding resolutions for our problems.
Tarot card of the day is the “6 of Wands”, suggesting that things are changing in a positive way. There is the possibility of acclaim and acknowledgment. It could be our day to shine or we could be coming out on top. We strive to be successful and seek to promote ourselves more frequently in order to gain the recognition we desire. However, it is important that we keep the ego in check.
