of the Year

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. A Scorpio moon transit weaves the visible and invisible worlds together. We see through and into the roots. Direct this energy away from obsession and towards creation. The moon's transit through Scorpio is a time of death and rebirth (not necessarily physical death ), intensity, extremes and heightened sensitivity. It is good for 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 cleaning out of emotional debris from the previous month/cycle. There is great energy complete things and focus on certain areas that you have found yourself too scattered to deal with in the previous cycle. 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.
Those who were born under a Scorpio Moon are intense, fiercely curious, and need to create solitude with healthy boundaries rather than isolation.
Last Quarter Moon - The last quarter moon (or waning half moon) rises around midnight and sets around noon. Astrologically, the Moon is square to the Sun (as it was at the First Quarter). She is visible from the time she rises until she sets. The Last Quarter Moon is the HARVEST phase - the plant gives her life so that others may continue theirs. Those who are born in a Last Quarter moon phase have a powerful internal life of reflection, and transformation. They can assume different roles while balancing their internal and external worlds. Keywords for the Last Quarter phase are: realignment, revision, integration and cleansing. It is the time in a cycle to take closing action, to follow-up and complete the activities begun at the New phase. During this phase you become aware of what is and is not working with respect to the achievement of your goal for the cycle. MANIFEST YOUR GOAL. Be responsible.
Woden's Day - Mercury Day - the Day of Communication and Connection... there are minor magickal energies to honor your ancestors and to achieve clarity. Woden's Day carries all of the planetary and magickal energies and associations of the witty and nimble god Mercury himself. Some of these mercurial traits include good communication skills, cleverness, intelligence, creativity, business sense, writing, artistic talent, trickness and thievery. And don't forget all of those wise and enigmatic qualities associated with the Norse god Odin/Wodin, not to mention the goddess Athene's contributions of music, the arts, handmade crafts, and writing. Wednesdays afford excellent opportunities for seeking wisdom, changing your circumstances, and improving your skills, be they in trade and commerce, music and art, or in communication and writing.
