Moon Phase Last Quarter Lunar Cycle Today

LQ. The lunar cycle today is the Last Quarter waning moon. See the moon high in the southern sky.

LQ Moon phase and Emotions

There’s been some soul searching going on for a few days. You may feel like you want to give it all up and it is hopeless. You are empty and have no control over anything that is going on.

Yes, the message is a clear one: it is time to give it up. I mean it! Give up what is useless, what is not working, what has outlived any kind of constructive return. Let it go. It is time.

Welcome this time as a necessary part to getting where you want to go. If you ignore it, it will come back in another form.

What you have been pushing under the rug for a couple of weeks is up on the top of the list now. What has been repressed is trying to bubble up to be dealt with now. Only you will know what that is and you are ready for it.

Peer fearlessly into your darkest secrets. It is only between you and yourself. Be honest, but kind as well.

LQ Moon phase and Mind

Each part of the cycle is important, and some parts are more important than others. This is one of those important times.

Working with the processing now benefits what goes on in the later part of the cycle. It feels difficult, but the cycle supports the doing of it now. It will not last too long!

Make a little room in the normal mind-chatter for a breeze of spontaneous and intuitive thinking.

Find an activity to let your mind clear. Join left and right brain functions together – know that it is possible to use the best of both sides.

LQ Moon phase and Work

Mental machinations have certain value. When used in combination with intuition, the value magnifies.

Release the mental process and allow for some downtime. Quiet the inner critic. Let mental uncertainty be a stepping-stone to move out old ways of thinking that are no longer useful.

“What’s the use?” could be an important part of your thinking now. Take simple actions rather than indulge in thoughts of uncertainty or worry. Clean out your desk and prepare to make a fresh start.

May 25 – 31 Lunar Hair Chart Waning Moon for Slower Growth

posted in: Lunar Hair Chart | 0


The waning moon is the time in lunar hair care to see slow growth after a haircut or trim, and after a coloring or chemical treatment.

MAY 27 after 12p – Aquarius for Color/Chem. Aquarius is highly rated for coloring hair with its quality of Fixed and class of wet. Add the waning moon to see slower root growth with the class of semi-barren. The same class of semi-barren plus hot puts Aquarius on the moon sign list for conditioning.

MAY 31 – Cut in Aries. Aries is a sign to choose when the focus is on slower growth for hair with the class of semi-barren. Combine with the waning moon for this goal. Aries is a Fire sign. Just like we add lotion to dry skin, when the moon travels through dry Aries the advice is to do a conditioning hair treatment.

Tip – look for the “BEST” ratings on the lunar hair chart to take full advantage of the moon phases for hair care.

The principles of lunar hair care hold that slower growth occurs after a cut or trim during the two weeks after the Full Moon. Here are the BEST dates for the week ahead and what they mean.

CUT/TRIM JAN 27. The best use of Virgo is to cut or trim hair with slower growth in mind. Virgo’s Mutable quality and especially its barren class is emphasized when the moon is waning.

COLOR/CHEM JAN 29. In my research of more than 30 resources about lunar hair care, the most number of votes for Libra was for coloring hair only in combination with the waning moon. This is the day for this hair treatment goal to make excellent use of the astrological sign and the waning moon phase. Look for coloring to grow out more slowly following a treatment.

COLOR & CUT/TRIM JAN 31. Fixed and fertile make the Scorpio Water sign an excellent astrological sign for coloring hair. The Moon in Scorpio gets a special boost of being sextile to Venus for the BEST rating. The same sextile is a boost for Scorpio’s Water, Fixed and fertile qualities that make it a candidate for the goal of thicker hair for a haircut or trim.
