Balsamic Moon - The Balsamic Moon (or waning crescent moon) rises before dawn and sets midafternoon. She is the last sliver of Moon seen in the eastern sky in the dawn and in the very early morning. The Balsamic Moon is the COMPOST phase, when the nutrients remain in the soil, providing nourishment for the next new seed. Those who are born in the Balsamic phase possess the potential to be wise, insightful, understanding and patient. They are prophetic and unique. This the end of one cycle and the beginning of another. Keywords for the Balsamic phase are: transition, release, transformation, renewal, and purity. It is the phase in a cycle when you must let go of everything you have been working on that does not deal with current cycle issues. During this phase you reflect on the passing cycle and prepare for the new. Trust in renewal. It is important to separate from others now so that you can clear the intellect of negativity. LET GO. Become still and mediate.
Moon in Scorpio - The Moon in Scorpio gives us attitude, and brings out our primal side; it sharpens our curiosity and our edges, our focus to the point of obsession. Fluff doesn't cut it; get real or let it go; honor privacy, don't crowd. Time to: dig deep, weed, investigate, do surgery, keep secrets, and love each other up. Those born under a Scorpio Moon is intense, fiercely curious, and needs to create solitude with healthy boundaries rather than isolation. Scorpio weaves the visible and invisible worlds together. We can see through and into the roots. Direct this energy away from obsession and towards creation. When the Moon enters the emotional intense Scorpio today, giving us the desire to keep our strongest feeling to ourselves. The secretive aspect of Scorpion's a way of holding power, but also assist in the internal processes of change. Although Scorpio is a fixed sign, it is really about metamorphosis - the most profound kind of change. Think how appropriate this Scorpio moon transit is for this Balsamic phase. Nothing can stop Scorpionic transformation one started. Emotional resentments from the past can surface and block your heightened creative energy, so fight urges to be suspicious and secretive and moody. This is a time cleaning out of emotional debris from the previous cycle. There is great energy to complete things and focus on certain areas that you have found yourself too scattered to deal with previously. Moon in Scorpio is the best time to work magick involving sexual matters, power, psychic growth, secrets, and fundamental transformation. Healing rituals for ailments of the reproductive organs are also done during this transit.
This is Thor's Day - Jupiter Day, the Day of Vision, Spiritual Insight, and Expansion... There are minor magickal energies for eliminating obstacles to wealth, power, and fame.
