Last Quarter Moon Energy
What is Moon Energy?
In brief, the influence of the Moon’s 28-day journey through each sign and its stages, and how this affects our lives.
Last quarter moons are all about reflecting upon the progress we may have made from the last full moon (the previous week); a time of assessing what has worked well for us and what has not, an opportunity to fine tune our lives in readiness for next week’s new moon energy best for “all things new”.
What to do in the Last Quarter Moon Energy?
This is the time you should reflect back on what has worked well for you in the last week and what did not. A stock-take or inventory of your life over the last week or so that lasts until the next full moon.
This is a quieter energy than both last week’s full moon and next week’s new moon. It is more introspective. A time to retreat back a step from a situation or from launching anything new. It can feel like an internal tug of war with yourself, like a toddler trying to stay awake instead of taking a break to rejuvenate. If you fight it, you’re only going to feel more tired and stressed and clumsy.
Better to treat this as a quiet week, keeping things on the down-low, a moment to catch your breath before feeling refreshed and re-energised just in time for next week’s new moon energy – perfect!
In these moments of stillness and rejuvenation, you’ll be better able to objectively reflect on your progress and make the necessary adjustments to re-integrate with new projects or ideas at next week’s more favourable time energetically.
The Takeaway: There may be some things you are still figuring out in this less bright light of the Moon. These are represented by the dark side of the Moon in its last quarter. Focus on these as you reflect to clear your thoughts ahead of next week’s new moon, when you can take new actions more effectively.
