Crescent Moon - (or waxing crescent moon) rises midmorning and sets after sunset. She is the first visible sliver of Moon seen in the western sky in the late afternoon and early evening. The Crescent Moon is the SPROUT of the moon plant. The seed has broken through the earth and reaches up as she ventures from the dark moist earth she has known. Keywords for the Crescent moon phase are: expansion, growth, struggle and opportunity. It is the time in a cycle that you gather the wisdom learned in the new phase and communicate your intention to move forward. Light a candle. Write or read an affirmation. LISTEN AND ABSORB. Commit to your goal(s). Those who were born in the Crescent
phase feel as if they must break with past to create their own destiny.
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 is a time to investigate, keep secret and love each other up. The moon's transit through Scorpio is a time of death and rebirth (not necessarily physical death), intensity, extremes and heightened sensitivity. It is a good time for focusing, being sexual, and doing psychic work because of the deep emotions and desires that Scorpio brings. Emotional resentment from 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 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 lunar cycle. Now that we are beginning a new lunar cycle and Mercury Retrograde is well over - we can begin a more positive forward movement. With Moon in Scorpio, 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. 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 sign are intense, fiercely curious, and need to create solitude with healthy boundaries rather than isolation.
Thor's Day - Jupiter Day - the Day of Vision, Spiritual Insight and Expansion.....there are minor magickal energies today for business success.
"Earth is green and so is money,
Business flows like milk and honey,
Fortune ebb and fortune flow,
Magick makes my business grow."
