The First Quarter Moon, a Capricorn Moon, is visible at 48% and brings wisdom to confusion. Before making any decisions or forming any conclusions, make sure you are looking at the larger picture. People are as a whole very quick to judge. We form opinions about things based upon very limited information and let our entire view of people and things be formed by this judgment. In a busy life, it can be tough to find the time and space to take a step back and look at the bigger picture of a particular project, your whole career, or even life. Several times a week, try to spend 10 – 15 minutes writing in your journal about whatever is on your mind. This is a great way to add more reflective time into your life. For today, find just five minutes to think deeply about one aspect of your life – perhaps a problem that’s been nagging at you, something that you’re struggling with. Write down your thoughts about the larger picture, and you will be surprised at the results.
