Capricorn/Aquarius Gibbous Moon
Quickening to opportunity.
It would behoove you, especially after getting back to reality after a holiday weekend (here in the states at least) to ‘guard against taking on more than you can safely handle—don’t overestimate your abilities and disappoint yourself and others by falling short of what you promised to achieve…’
It is implied here today that the level of success you wish to attain is exactly equal to the amount of energy and effort you wish to put forth…
There’s also a strong sense of perseverance…
Today’s energies speak to the “vision, and to the perception of a higher reality… symbolizes a spiritual journey, or a quest for understanding and enlightenment, and it dramatizes the determination to comprehend the ultimate purpose or meaning of life…”
The emphasis here is “on the importance of not giving up before a goal is reached out a dream fulfilled…”
Take one step at a time. Keep your eye on your goals. Know what you value—and why…
And then—the moon moves into Aquarius. And when the moon is moving within this phase of Aquarius shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera calls this the Trickster’s Moon, a moon when we “attack a problem in an unusual way, brainstorming for something that’s never been thought of before…”
It’s likely that your steps, your goals, and your values will all be brought to a point of questioning—as in creative resourcefulness or solution-focus.
Aspirations morph into ambitions… and on and on and on…
