Third Quarter Moon Phase – Moon in Leo/Virgo
Some days dualities are stronger than others; Wednesday and Thursday are two of those days.
Wedneday’s energy brings the need to consciously choose our mindset. In other words, we will have to work at choosing a day that reflects our natural, true state of being: joyful, playful, and appreciative of the beauty of the planet. It’s a wise old owl indeed who can express these things in the world today. The window of time of extremely intense energy has now closed and we don’t have to worry about maintaining strong ground by invoking the rocky cliff. We don’t have to hold on so tightly or rigidly. It’s time to lighten up and let in some air. It’s time to let things fly (meaning some things just need to go!). Simplicity is the keyword for Wednesday.
Thursday brings the potential for overwhelm if we try to take on too much responsibility (for tasks, for others and for others’ feelings…) or try to be overly self-sufficient. The opposite side of the energy is laziness and falling victim to disinterest or martyrdom – believing the world is against us. The key to dealing with this is the age-old wisdom of balance. We have to find a balance between taking care of ourselves and others, balance between work and play, and balance between the light and dark sides of our psyches. Like Wednesday, this energy requires some skill to navigate because it will unbalance people and will unbalance situations. Stay even-keeled and aim for the center. Yoga will help immensely if you are teetering. Balance is the keyword for Thursday.
