The 1st Quarter Moon in Virgo happens on June 1, 2017 at 5:42 am PST at 11 degrees. The “Counting Moon” taking inventory of what mental clutter is keeping you from your wholeness and willingness to be of service to others. The 1st Quarter Moon week is June 1-8, 2017.
The 1st Quarter Moon lunar phase is a time for Action. What happens that spurs you into action is the phenomenon known as Resistance. The Sun and Moon now form a 90 degree angle or square energy. This slows down the Universal energy thats natural way is to flow in a circular fashion in waves. The square slows down the velocity creating a block or resistance. The build up of energy is the volume of extra power needed to push you through blocks, old patterns and stuck, negative habits.
In comes Virgo to the rescue! Virgo is great at clearing, cleaning and declutterizing mental blocks. Her modus operandi is wholeness and simplicity that pave the way for sacred service to others. How she does this is donning her magical yellow gloves and her bucket of soapy water to put chaos back into order.
