Moon Musings

April 4-10, 2022

Monday, April 4, 2022

As we shift from the New Moon in Aries on Friday into the Waxing Crescent Moon. This is the time of the fastest increase in its visible size. Its energy is correspondingly active and dynamic. Ancient druids regarded it as the most auspicious time to work creative magic – to catch the rising tide. The potential of the new Moon is starting to manifest. Keep your intentions in mind and act. The sun starts to move closer to the new moon and begins to lighten up. A crescent appears until it grows into a first-quarter moon.

This is the time for setting intentions, hopes, and wishes. After recharging under the newness of Grandmother Moon, your desires are ready to be planted.

This is the time for laying the mental groundwork on new projects, developing your intentions, writing cheques to the universe, or burying your crystals.

We are starting this week in Taurus ♉ Earth-Moon Energy ⛰️ as it finishes up tonight at 9:51 pm EDT. This is a lovely Moon sign … the Moon and Taurus go really well together. They both have a bit of a “food” thing going on the Moon rules food and Taurus loves food. So, watch out for overeating if you’re watching your weight, but enjoy yourself if you’re not. This is a sensual and relaxing Moon placement so try not to have anything too jarring to do. Having a massage or lazing around all day in bed with your lover / cat / a cup of tea is ideal. This is a No Rush day.

Then we move into a very short 🌚⚠️ VOID MOON (VOC)🌙 from 9:52 – 11:03 pm EDT. During this short time, we are transitioning between one Zodiac sign to the next, but isn’t reflecting elements/making any major aspects with either sign …. this is the gap between those transitions.

We will end this evening in the Gemini ♊ Air Moon Energy ☁️ starting at 11:04 pm EDT. Air Moons are chatty, flighty, and intellectual. The theme during this time is all about communications, travel, neighbours, and siblings.

The day can seem to go very fast because the Moon is in the quicksilver sign of Gemini ♊.  This can be a good thing if you’re not already overworked, but a tad confusing if you have a lot on your plate. Certainly, it’s a busy day. This might sound like the Aries Moon Day information but it’s different. Aries Moon Day is about action, while the Gemini Moon is more about mental energy – talking to lots of people and non-stop moving about.

 If you have a presentation to give today, you have the stars (or rather the Moon) on your side. Similarly, a Gemini Moon Day is a great time to hold a social gathering (aka a party) because everyone is going to be extra chatty, which oils the social wheels. Conversations today can make sense of a lot of things. It’s a day to be inquisitive.

As we continue in this Gemini ♊ Air Moon Energy ☁️ until 11:13 pm EDT.

This Moon is good for … socializing, thinking, reading, talking – and generally taking your communications skills for a whirl

This Moon is not so good for … being totally Zen – there’s too much to do and too many places to go

Do … call up your best pal, your siblings/parents, and anyone else on your “must call” list

Don’t … keep gabbing on social media until you embarrass yourself. You will know when to stop, so do it. 

We will end this day in 🌚⚠️ VOID MOON (VOC)🌙 starting at 11:14 pm EDT and move into Thursday. During this time, we are transitioning between one Zodiac sign to the next, but isn’t reflecting elements/making any major aspects with either sign …. this is the gap between those transitions. Sometimes it’s very short spurts while other times it’s looong. It can last minutes, hours, and sometimes, even days.

We start up today in the 🌚⚠️ VOID MOON (VOC) 🌙 until 11:30 am EDT. 

Moon Medicine is about self-reflection. Grandmother Moon reflects back what we need to look at, what we need to face, what we need to resolve.

During a Void of Course Moon, it gives us the time to just sit with the energy. If you can avoid doing anything during this time, then just sit with it in silence.

Things to do during these times: connect with your spirituality; declutter your life (physical or emotional); stick with your routine; rest, make plans during this time; socialize; take a trip; review things that need editing in life or work; finish up something that you started.

Caution during these times: don’t start anything “big” or “important”; avoid things like presentations, facilitating workshops, or job interviews; sharing important information – it will either get lost or it could be misunderstood; plans you make during this time may not work out; avoid starting new projects; people are not what they seem, so be mindful; avoid large purchases.

At 11:31 am EDT, we will be moving into the Cancer ♋ Water Moon💧Energy, which will take until Saturday evening. This is a Water Moon that is always emotional, psychic, and mysterious. The themes during a Cancer Water Moon are all about home and family, domestic life, and privacy.

After the carry-on of the past few days in ♊ Gemini Moon Energy, the world breathes a sigh of relief as the Moon moves into the home-loving Cancer Moon. This is a day to retreat to the bosom of your family, or at least to be at home. The vibe mellows and suddenly, domesticity beckons. It’s a day to feather your nest.

Sort out your home if it’s in a bit of a mess. Clear up, clean up and do the washing. Have friends or family over to enjoy a good meal. (Cancer loves food!) If you find yourself giving in to Cancer Moon Day is a wonderful time to work on your doubts and fears. Don’t scuttle away under a rock. Work out what’s worrying you. This is also a good day to show someone your soft underbelly. Don’t be too hard-headed.

This is now the Action Phase of Grandmother Moon, as we enter the 🌓 First Quarter Moon at 2:47 am EDT. This is the time to commit.

About a week after the new moon, we’ve reached the first quarter. We are now one-quarter of the way through Grandmother Moon’s cycle.

This is when obstacles appear and we begin to feel some resistance. The first hitch is experienced here if your intentions were set with the new moon.

The themes here are challenges, decisions, action.

The time for rest and setting your intentions are over and it’s time to work harder than ever. Things will now be thrown and you may need to make decisions on the spot. Stay calm and be flexible. Make decisions that will bring you closer to your desired outcome with the intentions that you set during the new moon. Keep focussed on your desires.

Write yourself a DAILY to-do list using paper and pen. Keep a journal to track everything you are doing to move through this resistance. As you complete the task, cross it off throughout the day, if you can.

As we move through the final hours, the Cancer Water💧Moon Energy it is good for … baking, staying in, and getting cozy. Spending time with loved ones. Coming up with a dynamic plan: Cancer energy is also very entrepreneurial.

However, it is not so good for … being detached, aloof, and unemotional. 

Do … spend time with kids you adore; be hospitable; take time out.

Don’t … draft yourself to any place you don’t feel like going unless you totally have to. 

We remain in this energy until 9:00 pm EDT this evening.  

For another short period of time, we will be entering another 🌚⚠️ VOID MOON (VOC) 🌙 starting Saturday, April 9⋅9:01 – 11:59 pm EDT. During a Void of Course Moon, it gives us the time to just sit with the energy. If you can avoid doing anything during this time, then just sit with it in silence. As most of us will be preparing for bed or will be spending this time sleeping, this is a good time to connect with your spirituality.

First thing at 12:00 am EDT, we move into that fiery ♌ Leo Moon Energy. Take the time to tap into your creativity over the next few days. Have fun! Be flirtatious with life. 

It’s time to show off a little! ♌ Leo🔥Fire Moon Energy is the showstopper sign of the zodiac and when Grandmother Moon makes here monthly trek through Leo, you can be sure someone somewhere is turning heads. if you need to do something with confidence, a Leo Moon Day is a great place to start.

We end this week in the 🌔Waxing Gibbous Moon Phase 4. This is the time to Refine: tweak, hone, and adjust as we stay on course. 

The waxing moon is one phase away from becoming a full moon. The largest part of the moon is lit up leaving it to be seen throughout the day.

What do you need to do to adjust, refine, or edit your New Moon intention? What are some of the details that you need to add or delete from the plan?
