The Third Quarter Moon happens at 18 degrees Sagittarius on March 9, 2018 at 3:19 AM PST/6:19 AM EST. The Moon joins Vesta “High Priestess” and Mars “Spiritual Warrior” in Sagittarius while the Sun joins Neptune “Cosmic Dreamer” and Chiron “Wounded Healer” in Pisces. The Third Quarter lunar week is a time for letting go, reflection, slowing down and completing your To-Do list. Let’s see what more is in store from the Cosmic Living Library!
“9” ~ Completion energy:
Did you notice the number of “9’s” in this 3rd Quarter lunar week frequency? The Moon and Sun are both 18 degrees, which equals 9 (1 + 8= 9). This happens on the 9th day of March. The timing is in on the 19th minute (has a 9 close enough!). The number “9” is “the symbol of wisdom and initiation. It is the last number before the next harmony. Numerology number 9 has the qualities of all the numbers 1-8. If you add 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8 you get 36 and if you add 3+6 you get 9. Number 9 is highly emotional and spiritual. Numerology 9 holds the path towards mystical knowledge” according to the LifeScript Doctor.
Time of the Bardos:
My curiosity always peaks when things happen between 3:00 and 4:00 AM. According to Tibetan Buddhism, this is the time of The Bardos. The liminal space of consciousness between worlds. This is the hour when the day dies and the new day is born. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, at 3:00 AM the life-force Qi leaves the Liver meridian, transforming “death” and jumps the Bardos to the Lung meridian to take its first breath of life once again. This jump of Qi is the largest jump in the physical-energetic body. Therefore, the Holy Ones know it is The Bardos, The River Styx, The In-Between. Natural-born Shamans are usually awakened during this hour to tune into their Medicine. Is that you? Are you generally awakened between 3:00 and 4:00 AM? Hmmm… Shamans among us!
The waning Sagittarius energy of the 3rd Quarter Moon wants to know your truth. Beyond the opinions of others, what speaks most loudly and clearly to your Soul? Because Sagittarius Fire energy seeks for Cosmic Truth, this vibration yearns to be right. Take note if you feel the urge to “hunt down” other’s viewpoints that conflict with your spiritual knowledge. Ask yourself, “At what costs is it necessary to prove my point?” Instead, seek deeper within your Heart who is more the authority of truth based on love.
Mars “Spiritual Warrior” at 25 degrees Sagittarius aligns with The Great Hunter ~ Orion’s Belt and forms a square to awaken the “Wounded Healer” Chiron at 27 degrees Pisces (Pleiadian consciousness). What active steps can you take to soothe, heal, and mend “Victim/Perpetrator” tears in your Soul fabric now? Utilize the gifts of your Spiritual Quest for your Inner Holy Grail to align with your greater Soul mission. Call upon the Lady of Shallot, Guinevere and Morgan Le Fay to guide your footsteps.
Sabian Symbols Storyline: Moon vs. Sun
Waning Third Quarter Moon 18 Sagittarius: “PELICANS MENACED BY THE BEHAVIOR AND REFUSE OF MEN SEEK SAFER AREAS FOR BRINGING UP THEIR YOUNG.” KEYNOTE: The need for people concerned with the future to discover a new way of living and more wholesome surroundings. KEYWORD: SURVIVAL.
The Moon reflects to your inner emotions to be alert for intrusion in your life and in the lives of those you love. How safe do you feel? Is anyone or anything menancing your feelings? You may be needing more nourishment, safety and security and less feelings of insecurity. Take a break from the news or any information that puts your mind and heart at unease. Strive instead to renew your mental, physical or emotional well being and come to a place of inner peace this week.
Sun 18 Pisces: “A MASTER INSTRUCTING HIS DISCIPLE.” KEYNOTE: The transfer of power and knowledge which keeps the original spiritual and creative Impulse of the cycle active and undeviated. KEYWORD: INVESTITURE.
The Sun is calling you to be a student “Disciple”, or a teacher “Master”. At times you’ll find yourself being both. When the student is ready, the teacher appears. And a teacher points the way, but a Master lives the way. Take this week to assimilate and transfer knowledge and wisdom from your Higher Mind to your waking consciousness. Listen to your own wisdom. Give and receive. Listen and learn. Knowledge, wisdom and spirituality are the way.
Jupiter Retrogrades: 03/08-07/10/18
*BONUS: Jupiter goes retrograde (23 to 13 degrees Scorpio) from March 8-July 10, 2018. This is a very powerful time for reflecting and renewing your spiritual morals and values. Go deep within your personal transformation over the next four months. Check out the Jupiter Retrograde post here. (Contact Shannon at email@example.com to find out how to powerfully purify and detox your Liver and Colon!).
FINAL THOUGHT: Uranus at 26 degrees Aries (an Arcturian Starseed degree!) is here to assist Jupiter with primal power life-force Qi. Tune into the ancient Arcturian allies that foster and mentor our Collective Human Soul growth. They are represented by Crop Circle messages and avatar teachers like Edgar Cayce, the Sleeping Prophet. Really tune into your primordial power over the next four months as well as this week during the closing of the Aquarian lunar cycle. Be a Wise Woman Spiritual Warrior and own your place, space and inherent right to renewing yourself through the power of Transformation.
Next lunar cycle begins on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2018 in the vibration of Pisces! Stay tuned!
