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. This transit is a time to: dig deep, investigate, do surgery (cut out what you don't need), keep secrets and love each other up. 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. 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 of regeneration and cleaning out of emotional debris from the previous lunar cycle/month. 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. 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 is also done during this period of time. Those born under a Scorpio Moon are intense, fiercely curious, and need to create solitude with healthy boundaries rather than isolation.
"Old loves, old insults, old wrongs, old hates, old prides, old contempts, old horrows. old taboos, old totems ....... [Clan] I shed theses worm-skins of remembrance?" ____ John Cowper Powys, Obstinate Cymic
At this season, we are often driven into a bout of spring cleaning, throwing out the unwanted and bringing new order to our household. But what of deeper hurts, the old anguish, the festering wrongs, and the immovable obstinacies of our very being?
Select one such malingering obstruction to be removed from your mental attic by asking and answering the following questions:
* What past wrong or hurt embitters you the most?
* What past relationship still linger painfully?
* What childhood horror shadows you?
* What irrational prejudice still clouds your horizon?
* To what or whom are you still shackled by hate?
* What long-dead voice of authority still has you leaping?
* What old story against yourself still rankles?
Now take a walk in nature, meditating upon the issue at hand. Let your eye fall upon things that seem to speak to you about your own case: these might be fallen leaves, pieces of rubbish blowing about, feathers, berries, bark, mushrooms, flowers and so on. Without damaging the landscape and its inhabitants, collect some of these things and assemble them into an emblem of your issue. These collected items can be tied together with string or woven together with grasses. Create something really beautiful. When it is complete, make a small fire outside. Relinquish your issue(s) to the cleansing flames and burn the emblems you have made, visualizing their influence passing away from you. Stay and watch the emblem turn to ash and be borne away.
