Tonight is the first quarter moon! Meaning its the moon phase between the New and Full Moon where exactly half of the side facing Earth is illuminated. This phase occurs approximately one week after New Moon, and in one week the full moon will be upon us! SO SIKED! At the first quarter, the moon sits at 9 o’clock. The sun, Earth, and moon form a right triangle on the left side of the clock. Here only half of the moon’s disk is illuminated. At first quarter, the moon rises 6 hours after the sun – at about noon. It reaches its highest point at sundown and sets around midnight. That means the moon can be seen during daylight hours in the afternoon. For several days after first quarter, the moon continues to wax but it is in a waxing gibbous phase instead of a waxing crescent. A gibbous moon is more than a quarter moon but less than a full moon. During this phase, the moon moves from 9 o’clock to 6 o’clock on the dial, and the sun-Earth-moon angle is getting larger – just like the moon’s phase.
– 1st Quarter -The Waxing moon is best used for attraction magik, inner love spells, protection for couples and healing energy for couples. Also success and money spells. What you want to attract to yourself and your path can be enhanced during this phase of the moon.
Remember the curse of three!
Merry part and merry meet again!
