What You Should Focus On During the Last Quarter

Understanding Your Feelings and Emotions During the Last Quarter of the Lunar Phase

As you may already know, there are eight lunar phases of the moon, and each phase acts as a guide for your emotions and actions. During each phase, you should be following certain steps to promote your well-being and cut-out the bad energy in your life. When the first quarter phase is occurring, you should be focused on overcoming obstacles that are in your way. If you are struggling to get what you want, find out what is preventing you from getting there and jump over it. 

The last quarter phase of the lunar cycle is all about transitioning and completing your goals, which makes sense since it occurs towards the end of the month. During this time, you see what is and is not working for you when it comes to completing your goals. Take this time to really observe who’s supporting your goals and what’s helping you get to where you want to be. If it’s working, good for you! You’ll see what’s not working and who’s not supporting you, and when you notice this, it’s time for you to make a change. If that item isn’t helping you get to where you want to be, get rid of it. If you have a friend that’s causing more harm than help, let them go. You know what you need to do. 

Not only is this phase about finding what works for you, but it’s also about taking responsibility for your actions. If you’ve made mistakes, own up to them. The only person responsible for you is you. If you’ve hurt someone, apologize to them, own up to it, and make it up to them. When you recognize what you’ve done wrong and make it right, you’ll have good karma coming your way. 

You should be completing your tasks and goals. It’s time to finish up what you’ve been wanting to do so you can prepare new goals. You’ve been working your way to the finish line since the beginning of the month, it’s time to finish what you’ve started. If you’ve planned to complete grad school applications by the end of the month, send them in. If you’ve set a weight goal for the month, lose those last few pounds. The most important thing is that once you’ve completed your goals, remember to stick with them. Temporary goals are okay, but you should also be trying to improve yourself by changing your lifestyle. If you’ve started a new diet, stick with it after the month is over. Keep working on making your dreams come true. 

Take the time to recognize that this is a point in your life where you should be making changes. It’s a great time to go and get a haircut to improve your presence. Detox and get rid of the poisons in your body. Vanish those toxic behaviors that have been plaguing you and dragging you down. Make the changes that best support you and put yourself first for once.

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
