The Hidden Gem in the Last Quarter Moon Phase is…

A quiet strength of the moon cycle is found in the Last Quarter that gets neglected for the excitement of the New and Full moons.

The keyword for Last Quarter is “crisis.” It’s the half-way point between the Full and New Moons. A simmering time. An opportunity to review what’s happened recently. A mental turning point in how you feel about the actions of the last few weeks. It is usually colored by an intense emotional issue.The Hidden Gem in Last Quarter Moon Phase is...

That issue connects to wrestling with personal values. It doesn’t have to be painful, especially if you know what is going on. Success for this week means that you examine your life in relationship to your values.


While all of this agitation is going on with emotions and value, another remarkable thing can happen. Sometimes it is in the very center of a crisis that a peak experience can occur.

Let’s take the highest form of crisis and look at what happens when there is a disaster. People perform all kinds of heroic actions to help others that seem impossible to believe. The people doing it hardly knew what they were capable of until they were put into an extreme crisis situation, like a 90-lb. woman lifting a 3-ton car off her trapped child.

Sometimes the cosmic balance leaves us grieving and wondering how such evil can exist, but one such incident took place on a September morning in 2001 during the Last Quarter phase:

Year 2001

New Moon Aug 19

First Quarter Aug 25

Full Moon Sep 2

Last Quarter Sep 10

Knowing that this event was a part of the cycle can never alleviate the pain that thousands felt, and still feel. We can only offer them our prayers and support.

Here is another more recent Last Quarter event.

Year 2018

New Moon Dec 17 2017

First Quarter Dec 26 2017

Full Moon Jan 1 2018

Last Quarter Jan 8 2018

The night before Last Quarter when the Moon was heading to sextile Jupiter (public relations; recognition in business) Oprah Winfrey gave a speech on the Golden Globes awards show accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement.

See the links below if you missed it.

During the show it was astounding to see Hollywood silently portray the current issue of #metoo with the women all wearing black. Did you notice most women wore no lipstick also? The men wore small black pins saying “Time’s Up.”

I was thrilled to see this silent demonstration for women’s rights and after a while I almost left the show, thinking that was enough. And then Oprah showed up in all her glory. “O” she is called.

Who better to speak for women, surrounded by women in black, stripped of bling and standing together “fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say “Me too” again.”

Bless Ron Howard who had to follow her on the stage. He recognized the moment.


Want more? Here’s another Last Quarter peak event:

Year 2017

New Moon Dec 29 2016

First Quarter Jan 5 2017

Full Moon Jan 12 2017

Last Quarter Jan 19 2017

The worldwide Women’s March following the presidential inauguration took place on January 21, 2017, during Last Quarter week.

February 14, 1920: The League of Women Voters is founded at the Victory Convention of the National American Woman Suffrage Association in Chicago, Illinois. Last Quarter week.

May 21, 1919: The House of Representatives passes the federal woman suffrage amendment. Last Quarter May 22, 1919.

September 30, 1918: President Wilson addresses the Senate to argue for woman suffrage at the war’s end. Last Quarter week.

I know these events are anecdotal to the topic. Every Last Quarter and the week following do not produce every major event in the world. Major peak events do occur on other days of the moon cycle.

But when I see these events coincide with the moon cycle my view is that they perfectly illustrate the marvelous connections we have in the web of life in this universe, on this Earth.


You can’t plan for this opportunity of Last Quarter Week except to know it is possible during this part of the phase. Here you are deep in the pit of some kind of emotional frustration and it seems no one knows or cares about it.

It may be expressed as a full-blown drama or merely a series of thoughts while driving in your car. Then, when it seems there is no where to go, inspiration can pour in. Up is the only place to go, sometimes like a rocket!

Consider what peak experiences you have had in the past. Reflect on a past event that has turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Be pleasantly prepared for a situation now that will become a sweet memory of tomorrow.

Because you know what Last Quarter leads to – it’s preparation for the New Moon. And the cycle continues.

I’m so glad you stopped by today!

Phase on.

Moon Phase Last Quarter Lunar Calendar

LQ. 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.
