First Quarter Moon [ moon-phase ]
The First Quarter Moon phase occurs when the Moon is 90 degrees after the Sun.
This is a time of action. We become aware of differences, and this can be a time of stress, clashing, and discord, but also of great energy, motivation, and growth. We may be feeling especially ambitious and competitive. Things are beginning to take off or to turn a corner. This is a time when we want to get something going, but we may not know the next step or the exact direction we want it/us to take. Most suitable activities now include taking action, pushing forward, making offers, researching more options, meeting new people, and gathering new/additional supplies you may need to further a project. Watch for overconfidence or overshooting the mark. Use the stress generated now to make changes.
Full Moon [ moon-phase ]
The Full Moon phase begins when the Moon is at 180 degrees after the Sun.
This is an "eyes wide open" phase when we're made aware of something that has been previously hidden or not fully acknowledged. Something can come to fruition, culmination, or a turning point. Something finishes or ends now. Emotions are strong. Deadlines occur, imbalances are illuminated, and compromises need to be made. Epiphanies occur, feelings blossom. This is a strong time for expressing feelings, putting on a show, making an announcement, publishing, promoting, publicizing, uniting, making agreements, and finding missing links/objects/information/people.
