Last Quarter Moon Energy: 25 June – 2 July 2019
From around 10:46 am (UK time) on 25 June 2019, the Moon will be in its Last Quarter in the sign of Aries.
What is Last Quarter Moon Energy?
We are back in a time of reflection after revelling in the harvest of the Full Moon energy of last week. As such, it can all feel very much an anti-climax; a hangover or comedown.
If we let it, we can be dragged down by this energy into a wallowing in self-pity in any way we feel we missed the mark in the last cycle, or, where we see the lesson in it, we can instead recognise this, see where we can improve and come up with a road-map to be put to use in next week’s New Moon energy, of where you are now and where you want to get to. Next week will be a time to put the finer detail to it but, for now, analyse your progress as a whole since the last cycle, to get a better insight into the bigger picture.
What is Aries Energy?
Aries is the action-man energy of the entire Zodiac. It’s a real “go-getter” feeling; an impatience to get started which is what, in my view, makes this energy somewhat challenging. In our haste to get started, we may not see the value in this time of withdrawal and reflection, instead wanting to not lose the momentum.
But the Sun is in Cancer which is a much gentler, maternal energy, feminine and deep with their emotions. It is in balancing these two equally powerful energies that is the key to successfully working with them.
It won’t be easy though – Aries is the tell it like they see it energy which will immediately bring to light any areas of disagreement in feelings and actions in squaring the deep-feeling Sun in Cancer.
What to do in the Last Quarter Moon in Aries Energy?
- Reflect on the good and the bad from the last cycle – what worked, what didn’t, what could you do differently next time?
- Learn the lessons in your reflections now so as to make better use of next week’s energy.
- Practice patience – engage in those activities that distract from taking hasty action until a more opportune time presents itself.
If you spent at least some time last week enjoying the fruits of your labours, you’re in the best possible position to make the most of these energies having a better appreciation of what worked and what success meant to you. Otherwise, you’re starting point is to do this now – What have you learnt during the last moon cycle? How can you use what you have learnt to continue to grow?
Once you’re armed with this information, you’ve got yourself a basic road map of where you are vs where you’re trying to get to. The equivalent to a Google Maps search; you may not know the detail of how to get there yet but you’re aware of the general direction.
It is also a time to practice patience, which isn’t easy with Aries energy; distract yourself from time to time this week so that you pace yourself. Enjoy the build up to the New Moon’s energy next week, taking time for self-care and recovery from the excesses of the harvest of the Full Moon, which should be enlightening in itself.
Until next week’s New Moon energy….
