The first quarter moon is waxing in Virgo. It is time to make time for your future self today.
Be determined, practical, and responsible.
At the first quarter moon phase the moon is in the liminal space between new and full. This happens approximately one week after the new moon and one week before the full moon.
The first quarter waxing moon is a time of growth. Whatever seeds you planted at the new moon have now taken root and are beginning to shoot up. This is a good time to review your intentions. Notice if any of them have words that are vague or general. Circle those words and come up with specific words/ideas to describe what you want to bring into your life.

Virgo Moon Attributes
When the moon is in Virgo the mood is analytical, critical, and organized. We are inclined to work out and eat well for the good of all. Assess the details, sort what to keep and what to discard. Deal with paperwork, mechanics, delicate crafts, or anything where precision is needed.
This new moon cycle (moonth) started off with fixed (stable and persevering) energy from Taurus but the waxing, full, and waning and next new moons are all in mutable signs meaning it is a good time for determination, depth and persistence. The actions you take under fixed influence can easily turn into habits and routines.
Think about your currents habits, anything you want to replace?
