Astrology: Born During a First Quarter Moon
If you were born under a First Quarter moon, you're going to have some serious Taurus energy available to you throughout your life. Lunar phases are not quite as strong as other astrological aspects in the natal chart, but the moon is powerful and should not be undervalued here. After all the position of the moon itself is highly, highly significant in chart interpretations, so why shouldn't the lunar phase also be taken into consideration?

Steadfast, Surefooted, Straight Ahead
Loads of Taurus energy here to help you do just about anything you want to do. However, there could be a tendency to get too wrapped up in your determination, and you could come across as too domineering and calculating in your pursuit of life's dreams and goals. Make use of this energy, but be sure to take a break here and there to smell the roses, because that is equally important. If you are a Pisces or Cancer, this influence probably won't alter your personality too much, and it could lend you some help when it comes to standing up for your beliefs. But if you're a Capricorn, Aries, Taurus or anyone else who was already born with a healthy dose of determination, be careful that you don't let this energy create a person who gets too caught up in goals. Living in the present is very important, too!
You were born with the knowledge that you are plenty capable. You have a healthy sense of self-esteem and you know that you are worthy of anything and anyone. If you were born with other aspects in your chart that conflict with this influence, you might have difficulty maintaining this attitude, but it will always be there in the background for you to draw strength from, should you consciously desire access to it. Ask, and it will become manifest. You will also have a particularly keen talent for helping others realize their own self-worth, but you might be so busy in your own pursuits that you leave them to sort it out on their own. This may come back to you in the form of karmic turnarounds sometime in the future, so try to help those around you and you will learn something about yourself in the process.
It's Ok to Relax!
Your soul needs time to stop and smell the roses, as I've already alluded to. Do not let yourself get bogged down in the logistics of daily life and future goals. It is important to take a moment to breathe, as you don't want to get to the end of the race with nothing to show for it but a weary body, exhausted soul and a medal you're too tired to even look at. You must learn to listen to your inner self and cut yourself some slack from time to time.
