Your personality is influenced by the square between the Sun and Moon at the First Quarter. This is also known as the waxing Half Moon. This friction can be a motivating factor, bringing a sense of urgency to your life. You get things done! You know instinctively what needs to be adjusted, and can be decisive (even ruthless) about making changes. This makes you a capable leader who is willing to question the status quo.
You may often find yourself in situations that provoke a crisis of confidence. It’s a point when crucial decisions are made, about what to leave behind, and what to develop further. You can work with the tension, and allow it to keep you on a forward path of growth. But you can also live with a lot of drama, and a feeling that there’s never any peace.
You make the most of these tensions when you consciously direct that intensity toward positive change. Through trial and error, you gain confidence in your own ability to push through resistance in an effective way. You may be a big personality that others see as relentlessly provoking change. You’re at your best when your forceful assertiveness is directed toward a higher purpose.
