"Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own. "
-- Charles de Gaulle
On December 6, we will have not only the last quarter Moon cycle of December, but also the last quarter Moon of 2012. This has been a very intense year, so harnessing the power of this last quarter cycle is crucial.
After weeks and weeks of sweeping changes and having our psyches completely overhauled by so much drama, we’re all struggling to make sense of the upheaval of 2012. Use this powerful last quarter cycle to put the pieces back together and even create a new identity before the next new Moon on December 13.
Last quarter Moons remind us that a cycle is ending and we often feel this is our last chance to get the lessons right. We feel the incentive to leave all the pressures of the crazy external holiday world behind and return to ourselves -- if only at the very end of the day during this time. We are being asked to look at who we really are and what we really want as 2013 quickly approaches.
We can expect our strength to be tested now as we put into practice all that we have learned since the last new Moon solar eclipse on November 13. Review the lessons of 2012. Which ones stand out in your mind? How have you changed? Where did you come from and where are you going? What direction do you want to steer your life?
