by Jessica Dawn. This next week's cycle brings us through the Last Quarter Moon Phase, into the Dark Moon, leading to our next New Moon – in Pisces on March 13th. Culmination and closure. Where in your life is this occurring? The waning half-moon is the last week of the lunar cycle before we begin anew once again, and it always signifies the "Crisis in Consciousness" stage.
by Jessica Dawn. This past two-week New Moon cycle moved us through an incredible pile-up of Aquarian energy – the archetype of the Gamechanger, the Truth Sayer, the bold cold mic-drop. Aquarius initiates the impulse to break free from the past at all costs, and with five planets there, including the Mercury Retrograde cycle (now direct,) moving forward, beyond, and even up, up and away, has been the momentum.
by Sandra Nicolaysen. The First Quarter Moon occurs halfway between the New Moon and the Full Moon. This is a time for building and investing because things gain speed and momentum. It's the moment within the Lunar Cycle when taking intentional action is key for further advancement. Conflicts of interest are likely during the First Quarter of the Moon because it forms a Square (90°) between the Sun and the Moon, representing an imminent tension that needs to be addressed with no delays.

Having gone through an evolutionary cycle that began with Aries breaking from the past, growing, and maturing to fullness, the cycle now begins to wane, giving more than receiving/building, and is now less attached to achieving, but instead rises above to look ahead toward an as yet unknown future. The Aquarian energies of this Moon cycle are greatly amplified, being accompanied as they are, by Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn, all forming a powerful stellium.

On Thursday, a new energy portal opens, a crisis in consciousness, requiring "organizing ability in terms of broad social ideals, to reform and transform and to work hard for future goals." This is the way Dane Rudhyar explains the energy of the 3rd Quarter Square Moon. This energy speaks well with the portal of the Aquarius/Leo axis. It encourages us to dream big, find the power of action, and fly.
by Gonca Kalabalik. My word for this week is Ambivalence; having conflicting emotions towards something. The week starts off on an emotional note as waxing La Luna transits Cancer, getting ready for Leo's full Moon. This is the middle point of the cycle, where we face the intentions that we set at the new Moon, and make a little balance check. It is ok to not be sure which way to go! It is ok to have evaluative inconsistency.
by Gonca Kalabalik. Last week, the new Moon conjunct Pluto set the month's tone, serious and determined to change. This week, she seems to be even more determined to help us find our most profound and rebel self and to find our nakedness in a world seemingly run by external forces. To not let anyone or anything make us feel less than what we are. If the world collapses, can we still find security in our center?
by KAYPACHA. Let's get serious! Or should I say, it will be serious whether you like it or not? This New Moon in Capricorn is conjunct Pluto, the God of the deep, down Underworld. And we know Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the great Lord of Karma, earnest, sober, stable, disciplined, grounded, goal-oriented decision-maker.
by JESSICA DAWN BOURQUE. The Last Quarter Moon represents the "Crisis in Consciousness" point. The phase in the cycle where we stand at the crossroads with the brilliant perfect (waning) half-moon above, reminding us that we have a decision to make. Where in your life might you be being asked to adjust your perspective and become more aware of something critical to your own development and growth at this time?
