Each New and Full Moon I dig into lunar astrology to write my newsletter and to set the theme for the associated Turtle Journey. I have recently begun to look at the Quarter Moons as well. I am not an astrologer, but I have enjoyed learning about this one aspect of astrology. I share some of what I am discovering here, along with a bit of magic.
When the Moon is half-full at the start of the second quarter, things that were set in motion with your New Moon intentions begin to gain momentum. The luminaries – the Sun and the Moon – are in a square aspect, which indicates tension between them. That tension can be channeled into your endeavors if you adjust and act.
The tricky bit is the Moon is in Taurus and you might be desiring your comfort zone. The stubborn bull is not in a hurry to change anything, especially if it means risking material comforts. If your New Moon intentions included building financial security or attracting abundance, however, Taurus will be more than happy to give you a push.
I was born under a Taurus Moon, so you would think I would be more in touch with my finances, but they have always created struggle for me. It may be because the Moon was waning then, creating different energy. Money magic never seemed to work, until I tried one that made all the difference. I am not sure where the idea came from, but it was not originally mine.
Put a jar on your altar or in another revered place and put some money in it. If you are really broke, like I was when I first did this, you might only be able to come up with one dollar. That is okay! Put the money in the jar and say, “Thank you. More please.” Then, every time money comes into your life unexpectedly, even if is a quarter you found in your pocket, put it in the jar and say, “Thank you. More please.” It may take some time, but when you work with both gratitude and the willingness to ask for what you want, money begins to flow. Leave the money in your jar until it is full or you have all you desire, then put it to use.
Instead of the jar, I use the process to check my bank balance every morning. No matter how much is in there, I write the balance in my day planner and label it “abundance.” Then I say, “Thank you. More please.” Any unexpected money that comes my way goes into that account. I have gotten through some tough times with that magic.
