The Crescent Moon (or waxing crescent moon) rises midmorning and sets after sunset. She is the first visible sliver of the Moon seen in the western sky in later afternoon and early evening. The crescent moon is the SPROUT. The seed has broken through the earth and reaches up as she ventures from the dark, moist earth she has known. Women born during the crescent moon phase must break from the past to create their own destiny. Keywords for the Crescent phase are: expansion, growth, struggle, and opportunity. It is the time in a lunar cycle that you must gather the wisdom learned in the New phase and communicate your intentions to move forward. Light a candle. Write or read an affirmation. LISTEN & ABSORB. Commit to your goal(s).

Moon in Scorpio - This transit is a time to dig deep - Scorpio weaves the visible and invisible worlds together. We see through and into the roots. Direct this energy away from obsession and towards creation. Sexuality can be potent, musky. Those who are born with a Scorpio Moon sign came here to find themselves in solitude first and then through transformative action with others. They may need to learn flexibility. They can offer us a fearless guide to the inner worlds as they midwife all transitions.
As the Moon moves through it's transit in Scorpio it can be seen as a time of death and rebirth but not necessarily as a physical death. There is intensity, extremes and heightened sensitivity experienced. This is a good time to focusing, being sexual, and doing psychic work because of the deep emotions and desires Scorpio brings. Emotional resentments from the past can surface and block your heightened creative energy, so fight urges to be suspicious, secretive and moody. This is a time regeneration and clearing out of emotional debris from the previous lunar cycle. There is great energy to complete things and focus on certain areas that you have found yourself too scattered to deal with in the previous cycle. Take the time now sexual exploration and relaxation. Moon in Scorpio is the best time to work magick involving sexual matters, power, psychic growth, secrets, and fundamental transformations. Healing rituals for ailments of the reproductive organs are also done during this period of time.

It is Saturn's Day - the Day of Manifestation and Structure, Assessment and Responsibility. There are Major magickal energies for Shapeshifting.  And today is the last day of Mercury Retrograde (Yea!!). Tomorrow Mercury will go direct at 7:09PM EDST.  Here is a little 'poem' from my "Seasons of the Witch 2010 Datebook for this day:
"I came upon a forest glade
in days of Mercury Retrograde
and though awhile
I'd trade my flaws
for four legs, fur, a tail, and claws."
