Balsamic Moon - The Balsamic Moon (or waning Crescent moon) rises before dawn and set 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. This is the ending of one cycle and the beginning of another. Keywords for the Balsamic phase are: transition, release, transformation, renewal, and purify. 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 meditate. For those born during a Balsamic moon phase they possess the potential to be wise, insightful, understanding and patient. They are prophetic and unique.

The typical Scorpio can be quite secretive, keeping personal affairs and feelings hidden from those around them. Outwardly they may appear fearless with a strong desire to succeed. They can purposeful and dynamic. They are perceptive about others and their personal magnetism makes them good at persistent probing to get to the basis of things. Their perceptiveness allows them to understand and comfort others in times of difficulty, and they are unlikely to violate a confidence. On the negative side their intense feelings can make them highly caustic and scornful when angered or crossed in any way. They can be highly jealous, destructive, stubborn, suspicious and even vindictive.Those born under this Sign should utilize their ability to reason while being aware of their negative qualities. They should be aware that relationships only flourish if both parties can share their thoughts and feelings. Those of other signs will also find this a good time to work on psychic abilities.
