Third Quarter Moon in Taurus – Breakout

The Moon reaches First Quarter point in Taurus (August 11th, 17:45 BST). Quarter moons are formed when the sun and moon are at right angles to each other, which is called a square in astrology (and geometry). This square energy is usually felt as restlessness, it calls for action, movement.

With the moon and Venus in mutual reception, and Mercury close to the sun in Leo, I feel like this movement is more internal than external. It’s a mindset shift. Suddenly you notice something that you do regularly which is not helpful for you. Suddenly it becomes harder to lie to yourself and others.

“I lie to myself all the time. But I never believe me.”
