Normally I do this stuff on the New Moon, but I am slowly adopting it for the Full Moon.  Sage: Sage is an amazing plant.

Intro to Asteroids - Arcana of Astrology

Vesta the Keeper - Devotion Vesta is a beautiful contradiction of Virgo energy and Scorpio energy. She represents the Vestal Virgins, but also has the potential for fantasizing about the taboo and being destructive.  She is the guardian of home and hearth, but it's important to think of your self as that home. The flame she protects is inside you. It is what sparks that sense of comfort and security.  Positive Vesta: dedication, clarity, organized Negative Vesta: low self esteem, fear, chaos Pallas Athena the Warrior - Justice Strategy and creativity rule this asteroid.

First Quarter Moon - Aries

First Quarter Moon - Aries

Happy First Quarter Moon! Known as one of the two "crisis" moon phases, now is the time where we hit any obstacles in terms of the goals we made during the New Moon period (whether they were intentional or not). Often these obstacles are more mental than physical, which is why it is important not to let self doubt or fear get in the way.    This phase is in Aries which forms a square to the Capricorn Sun (and a square to the residual New Moon energy in Capricorn).
