3rd Quarter Virgo “Fate’s Moon” at 26 degrees Virgo on December 18, 2019 at 8:57 PM PST/9:57 PM MST/10:57 PM CST/11:57 PM EST
You are ready to wind up this expansive and super fabulous Sagittarius lunar cycle this week. To me, 2020 has already started and I hope you are already imagining the possibilities for the next 10 years! The 3rd Quarter Virgo “Fate’s Moon” appears to teach you the difference between Fate and Destiny.
In a disempowered state, Fate plays with you by appearing as control from the external world. Fate is teaching you the most important lesson: you manifest your own reality! Take the analytical mindset of Virgo and peer into the microscope of The Quantum field of all possibilities that exist simultaneously. When the observer observes reality, it shifts. The “Fate’s Moon” is helping you understand this truth and come into a more perfect union with your ability to manifest your Destiny! Destiny is what YOU make of it. You are blessed, gifted, and eternally infused with the divine powers of creation. The Mind is a powerful tool for setting the Quantum Field in motion. Take this week to observe yourself in action. What are you creating? And does it serve your Highest Good, which is the guidepost for your destiny?
This week the planetary players are gathering to help you release and surrender in preparation for the next Winter Eclipse season starting with an Annular Solar Eclipse New Moon on Christmas night, December 25th, 2019. The Lunar North Node has invited the supercluster of Capricorn planets to listen to Her voice of Fate. The Lunar Nodal Wave brings together The Three Sisters, The Triple Goddess: Maiden, Mother, Crone or Clothos, Lachesis, and Atropos ~ The Spinner, The Lot, and The Cutter.
Take this powerful week to cut yourself loose from cords and ties that bind you to fate. As you release the energetic hooks, you free your destiny. These next steps can be found in the bigger picture of the luminous field of the upcoming Capricorn lunar cycle that starts December 25th. The Moon nurtures your highest good by inviting you to spend time to perceive your life in a new way. This is happening to help you move through the past and reorient you onto the present path of your Soul Purpose. Read on to learn more!

Release ~ Let Go ~ Forgive
Third Quarter Moon dynamics embrace the powers of Letting Go, Releasing, and Forgiveness.

It’s a two-way mirror that gives you your power back. This lunar phase week helps you to empty your ego and allow the Universe, your Angels, and your Guides to assist you in feeling more supported. Reflect upon your experiences over the last three weeks with the Sagittarius New Moon, 1st Quarter Pisces Moon, and Gemini Full Moon as your focus points. The more you can let go, the more space there is to create in the New Moon in Capricorn next week blessing you on Christmas night with an Annular Solar Eclipse!
“Fate’s Moon”: Choosing your Fate
During a waning Third Quarter Moon, your inward personal journey of self-development turns outward to gaze upon the wounds of humanity. Virgo in the 3rd Quarter phase is known as the “Fate’s Moon”.

Take this Third Quarter lunar week to communicate with the Three Fates and tune into where you are now in your spiritual evolution and Soul’s path. How are you showing up in the world and giving of your Soul’s gifts? Are you making a contribution or do you feel a Void of needs and wants? Fill the Void areas in your life, by contacting The Fates. The Moon and Sun carry messages for you. Let’s peer into their crystal ball of Magic to see what messages are there. Shall we?
14th Lunar Mansion ~ “The Scepter”
The “Fate’s Moon” passes through the 14th Lunar Mansion this week. This cosmic mansion of “The Scepter” is guarded by Mars and Venus. The 14th Lunar Mansion warns you about chasing your own tail and feeling frustrated that you are not getting where you want to be in your life. This is a passionate Mansion that can get you caught up in the moment and misguide your energy. What this Lunar Mansion wants you to know is the power of discernment. Ask yourself if all of this running around will really get you anywhere. Interview your passion to find out if it really has your best interests at heart. Use this discernment as a “scepter” to redirect your energy, focus, and desire into projects that have long-term benefits. As you get clear on what energies are supporting your highest good, you rid yourself of toxins that depress and oppress your joy. Support your clarity with healthy food choices, self-care modalities like massage and acupuncture, and connecting with your Angels and Guides for assistance as you powerfully move forward in your life.
MOON VS. SUN: 3RD QUARTER (WANING)
Moon at 26 degrees Virgo:
“A cup made from a skull. It is filled with dark wine.”
The 3rd Quarter waning Virgo Moon helps you see how the mind generates dross and debris when it is left unfocused. The upside to this “wasted thought power” is that it can become like fertilizer. Forego struggling against your mind, you only set up a conflict between yourself and your thoughts. Instead, befriend your thoughts and treat them like fine wine. Allow yourself to listen to and feel into the nature of where these thoughts originate from. This will ultimately release and purify your mind. The skull in the Moon’s image signifies the past, and the wine within it is the wisdom and learning to be gained from completely assimilating what the past has been trying to teach you. At the most pure state, the Moon has the ability to take in the past so deeply that it can then overcome dualities and fully arrive in the present. In this purified place of clarity, you may see things that may have gone long unrecognized.
Mercury rules this Virgo Moon’s energy. This week Mercury sits on the throne of the Great Attractor! At 14 degrees Sagittarius, Mercury speaks of the losses. What has meaning and value to you, if lost, can seem like a tragedy. Mercury, after his Scorpio RX sojourn, deeply understands the messages being revealed to you this week. Perceive how the space that is opening is an invitation toward higher consciousness. You have a golden opportunity to feel the bliss of being unattached to what used to appear as a loss.
Sun at 26 degrees Sagittarius:
“In the night, a woman uncovers herself to feel the cool air.”
The elder Sagittarius “Galactic Center” Sun wants you to let go of fear and allow yourself to be vulnerable. This perfected state connects you to a greater reality. In the calm silence of night, the subtler vibrations of other realms can be felt. The Sun is helping you become receptive to cosmic energies. Surrender and let yourself open up to the healing, soothing influences of your guardian Angels waiting to renew you while you sleep.
Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius, squares Chiron (now direct) at 3 degrees. Jupiter and Chiron’s clash brings up the question of “what needs to change in your life now?” When you discover what that is, change that within yourself first. Old structures that have been around for a long time need to change to meet the new needs of the future. Jupiter is tapping into the undercurrents to see what needs to erode within the landscape of human thought. Let yourself take into account the bigger picture so that you can see without a doubt what practical, down to earth, new structures will serve the Higher Good.
Chiron helps your inner Self become more psychically aware of energy that has been left behind in this life and that which lingers from other lifetimes. If you are experiencing Deja Vu, this is an indication that you have energy strands from other lifetimes that are ready to be cut. Call upon Atropos to help you sever ties to old, karmic patterns to complete these cycles. Gain more awareness of why things are unfolding the way they are in your life as 2019 comes to a close. Choose to work through them or overcome them to clear the way for further personal development.
As you wind down this Sagittarius lunar cycle and inch closer to the ending of 2019 and the 2010s, reflect upon the difference between Fate and Destiny.
Jupiter newly born into Capricorn has two tasks in 2020: to align with Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Aquarius. The Pluto and Saturn initiation happening on January 12th, 2020, lay the pathway for Jupiter to expand your Soul Destiny in 2020. It isn’t until December 2020 that the crescendo big bang energy that sets a new future into motion happens. Get your 3rd Eye tested to make sure you have 20:20 perfect clairvoyant vision, so you can see easily the clarity of your purpose and how to restructure your 5D Planet Earth Self.
