3rd Quarter

Receptive Heart and Mind

Your EMPOWERING Moon position is the 3rd Quarter!

Receptive Heart and Mind – Experiencing your feelings and emotions, and thoughts and ideas

You readily experience, acknowledge, and accept your feelings and emotions in a productive way, and your thoughts and ideas create an inner personal world which allows you to easily understand your Self and establish a strong sense of Self and self-esteem.

Your feelings are your Truth and the guidance that you use in discernment and making decisions. Conversely, you may get lost in your feelings and emotions and may not be able to reasonably assess situations and relationships accurately. This may lead to emotional breakdowns and losing sight of what really matters on a practical level.

You may not easily share, or feel the need to share, your thoughts and ideas with others, and may need to be aware of being “in your head” rather than being aware of others and what is going on around you. This may lead to becoming self-focused and self-absorbed, and you may have issues with relating, engaging, and connecting with others emotionally and through feelings.

During the week before the 3rd Quarter Moon position, Full Moon to 3rd Quarter, your feelings and emotions may become heightened and you may effortlessly process them in understanding your Self and your life circumstances. This is a time to be more conscious of your feelings and emotions, and embrace them in ways that bring you even more feelings of fulfillment and a deeper understanding of your Self. Your feelings are your Truth, believe in them.

During the week after the 3rd Quarter Moon position, 3rd Quarter to New Moon, you may become more self-focused and self-absorbed and feel the need to dive deeper into the inner personal world of your thoughts and ideas. Use this time wisely to assimilate your thoughts and ideas. Learn more about and understand your Self. It is a time for contemplation rather than external activity.

Your CHALLENGING Moon position is the 1st Quarter!

Creative Mind and Heart- Sharing your thoughts and ideas, and your feelings and emotions

Your challenge is to experience and share your creative thoughts and ideas with others and the world, and to be vulnerable, and openly express and share the emotional side of your Self.

You may “feel” your thoughts and ideas are not important, essential to share with others, or useful on a practical level. When you first take the necessary steps to share your creative thoughts and ideas with others and the world, you may experience a lack of confidence, distressing feelings, and a fear of people laughing at you and not taking you seriously. The more you become comfortable with sharing, the more you will build inner strength, confidence, and self-worth, developing a deeper understanding and a new perspective of your Self and the world.

By sharing your feelings with others, you learn how to acknowledge, accept, and be compassionate when others are expressing and sharing their feelings with you. As you engage and connect with others through the sharing of your feelings, you will explore and expand the feeling aspect of your Self, and experience another way of being and relating to others in the world.

You may not feel the need to participate or want to engage with others in this way.
