First Quarter Square between the Capricorn Moon and Libra Sun (23 deg)
Mercury in Scorpio sextile Vesta in Capricorn (9 deg)
Moving forward from the issues of loss, transformation and rebirth during the October 8th New Moon, the First Quarter Square challenges you to activate boundaries and responsibilities around these events.
It may be time to put your foot down or play by the rules- an exchange (Libra) will remain unbalanced until you do so. It may be easier to play nice or be passive, but the Capricorn Moon demands some adult energy. You can be fair but firm.
This square activates the other side of the parenting energy of the New Moon, which conjoined Ceres (mother’s nurturing). Capricorn is associated with the father, so any mother/child issues can be balanced out. Consider if you need to become the parent, or become your own parent. What do you need to define, shoulder or refuse? What are the parameters of the agreement that came about during the New Moon?
The new and uncomfortable responsibilities will push you forward.
Mercury/Vesta can help, with a nudge of quiet focus. Here is the serious conversation or piece of information - there’s something below the surface to consider (a secret or deep truth) and it’s asking for your complete attention. It should feel natural and easy to do this, although the gentleness of the sextile means it won’t demand that you look at it. But there could be something helpful that can show you the way through the First Quarter Square.
