1st Quarter “Woodcutter’s Moon” at 12 degrees Taurus, February 1, 2020, at 5:42 PM PST/6:42 PM MST/7:42 PM CST/8:42 PM EST
Welcome to the week of taking action on your New Moon in Aquarius intentions. With Earth energy, you get the power to GROW! The Moon and Sun are marked as “Healers” this week. Venus, the ruler of the Taurus, blesses the 1st Quarter Moon with the gift of freely playing the blissful game of consciousness without the burden of attachment.
Vesta, the High Priestess and the energy of Destiny pair together to assist the flowing of your emotions and to make them stronger. Adversity this week has the power to keep you fresh and vibrant.
Saturn reminds the Sun that the energies of the past may be hidden and lingering in unconscious memories. When you are looking towards the future, you need to inventory what needs to be forgotten and what needs to be remembered. Allow yourself to go there and dig into these hidden memories. They are not far away; we are carrying them in our beings and bones.
Finally, Mercury crosses his pre-shadow Retrograde degree alerting you to pay attention to Future signs and symbols. Mercury whispers to explore the inner workings of your life. Use this time to explore what is below the surface of your lived experiences. Realize that beneath all your striving and desires are deeper influences that you may not be aware of. The upcoming Mercury Retrograde on February 16, 2020, has the purpose of merging with your bigger picture by searching for the missing pieces.

1st Quarter Waxing Moon Dynamics:
Challenges ~ Decisions ~ Action
First Quarter Moon energetics are about busting through challenges, making clear and powerful decisions, and taking ACTION! Adversity becomes your friend as you break through obstacles, barriers, and blocks. The waxing Taurus Moon (with a twist of Virgo EARTH energy) forms a square, or 90-degree angle, to the Aquarius 2nd decan Sun (adding a twist of Gemini AIR energy). This waxing square builds FIXED universal Qi which increases your power. Use the power of magnetic attraction to move energy this week.
With this energetic focus, you are invited to break through old, destructive subconscious patterns. In the Lunar Ladies Club, you’ll learn how to align with this focus and use power mantras like this one:
“I Have Earth Power to bust through detachment this week!”
“Woodcutter’s Moon”: 1st Quarter Taurus Moon
The 1st Quarter “Woodcutter’s Moon” brings forth the separation of humanity from The Elemental Dryad’s world of living consciousness found in the Trees. The Woodcutter has to divorce himself from Nature in order to have the things necessary for survival: shelter, heat, and money. This 1st Quarter Taurus Moon’s energy invites you to see where you are cut off from the consciousness of the Earth in order to survive and fend off poverty. *This is a“poverty-conscious” Moon that sees and feels what hidden messages lay deeply buried in your Psyche. Hint: look to your Taurus-ruled House for your answers. Get your natal Oracle or join us in the Lunar Ladies Club for personalized support.
4TH Lunar Mansion: “The Stone”
The Taurus “Woodcutter’s Moon” receives power from the 4th Lunar Mansion this week. This cosmic mansion is guarded by the power of Mars and his “just do it” energy. You are now firmly rooted in the powerful Earth energy. Earth energy moves mountains, especially when seismic waves are released. When big energy moves, you may initially feel fear. However, the truth is, you can ride the waves like a Maverick surfer! Understanding the nature of the wave will enable you to tune and merge with its power, achieve your goals, and accomplish your endeavors. The 4th Lunar Mansion looks down on aggressive and impulsive behavior – or anything that is underhanded. Instead, honor the beauty of Mother Earth’s plants and flowers. Make medicines to heal aggression and an inability to connect with others. Medicines with a fiery nature are especially great for wellness. Try making some powerful immunity medicine like Fire Cider!

Through openness, patience, and persistence (Taurus energy) you can have greater value in your life than you ever imagined!
Venus, ruler of Taurus, desires for you to align with the power of Spring. When you connect with the energy of a cycle in Nature, you can take on its power. Know that when you give in to the urge to celebrate life, you receive the blessing of renewal and alignment of the cosmic order.
