First Quarter waxing half moon phase

Waxing half moon or first quarter moon.

When our moon is approximately a quarter in size she is termed the first quarter moon or waxing half moon. At this time she rises about midday and sets about midnight. We are thus blessed with the sight of her wonder for longer into the night now as she grows in fullness. On the night of first quarter moon, we see half of the moon’s day side, or a true quarter of the moon. Another lighted quarter of the moon shines just as brightly in the direction opposite Earth.  Take some time if you can to notice the way she increases in size every night. Imagine that this increased growth is pouring energy down into your heart, making you stronger and more able to carry out day to day tasks. 

This is the time of the month that you might find you are at your most productive. This moon phase is an excellent time for really getting stuck into any projects that you may have started during the new moon phase.  You will possibly find that tasks seem easier as you put more of your increased energy into carrying them out.  The waxing half moon phase is excellent for attracting luck and prosperity into you life; it is also a perfect time to work on improving relationships, new or old. Any activities that you carry out during the waxing phase of the moon will respond well to this increasing of the moon’s size and strength. This is a perfect time for blessings and affirmations that attract, that bring positive change, love, good luck. 

To promote hair growth this is the best time of the month to visit the hairdressers and get your hair trimmed. To encourage your lawn to grow, mow during the waxing moon cycle. This cycle of the moon is all about growing, working on things and developing ideas into concrete action. This first quarter moon is often considered to be the phase of the Warrior Maiden with goddesses such as  Artemis, Minerva, Bridget, Diana and Athena.  
I will post some more ideas on activities best to carry out at this phase of the moon in a later post. Blessings to you on this moon of growth, Alison xx
