FQ Moon phase and Emotions

The soul-searching is over. The waiting is over. The nurturing and struggling to birth a new idea are over.

It’s time to act. It’s time to “Show me the money!” This means doing your business with whatever that means to you.

It’s up off the sofa time, time to move along.

FQ Moon phase and Mind

You know Cuba Gooding’s famous line from the movie “Jerry McGuire” in his role as Rod Tidwell, an egomaniacal football player.

Tidwell/Gooding hired Tom Cruise’s character, Jerry McGuire, as his sports agent when McGuire is fired from his regular agency job. McGuire ignores Tidwell, who is forced to take a paltry one-year extension to his contract, while McGuire is busy with another promising football prospect.

In a valiant attempt to get McGuire’s attention, he delivers the famous line, “Show me the money!” and makes McGuire repeat it out loud until his heart and soul are convinced.

That is today. It’s the First Quarter moon phase shouting out loud and clear!

FQ Moon phase and Work

Action is the name of the game; move forward on the details. Your work should feel more solid now, like you know what you are doing.

If you actually went through last week without a notion of what you want to do and confusion is setting in, use whatever means to settle your mind down to provide a direction. Sit with pen and paper and doodle ideas. Meditate or take a walk. Focus on the question at hand and see what comes up. If you sincerely ask and genuinely want to receive an answer, the answer will arrive.

Consider that your choice is the best one. Remember: if you don’t choose, someone else will choose for you.

There is a sense of impending victory in the air. Use it to your advantage to make time for productive work.

First Quarter Moon Phase


The magnetics are rising this First Quarter week with the moon’s illumination running from 50 to 100%.

moon-phase-fq-what-to-watch-forThe first thing I note about the moon every day is if it is waxing or waning.

Wax is the right-hand moon rounded like your right hand with thumb and index finger extended into a crescent shape. Magnetics are rising.

Wane is the left-hand moon rounded. Magnetics are falling.

This is an excellent astronomy article describing the phases by Matt Williams.

Matt describes very well how the angles between the Earth, Moon and Sun changes our view of the Moon in the sky.

The First Quarter moon looks like a half-moon. It’s waxing. The first word I think about with First Quarter is CHALLENGE.

The vision from the New Moon is now in action mode. And you know any time there is an action, yes, there are bound to be some reactions around. I always want to push full steam ahead at every moment. If you are like that, then this week should feel quite familiar!With actions and reactions going on, there is bound to be some discomfort with the changes. It’s a signal to pay attention and stick to the plan.

Most importantly, this week is the time to watch if you are choosing what you want to do, or is someone else choosing it for you?

My challenge this week is publishing the Riding Moon Cycle books. I’m such a shy person mostly, so my challenge is all about being seen in the world. I much prefer being part of the stage crew behind the curtain shuffling around the props and furniture rather than being a main actor on the stage.

So, which movie describes your challenge this week?Die Hard

Wizard of Oz
Finding Dory
Singing in the Rain
The Matrix
Groundhog Day
Mary Poppins
Alice in Wonderland?
