Moon in Scorpio - Yesterday the Moon entered Scorpio at 8:58PM EST. 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, weed out the unnecessary, do surgery, keep secrets and love each up. Scorpio weaves the visible and invisible together. We see through and into the roots. Direct the 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 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 cycle. 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 period of time. For those born under a Scorpio Moon are intense, fiercely curious and need to create solitude with health boundaries rather than isolation. The Moon leaves Scorpio tomorrow at 6:04PM EST and enters Sagittarius at 8:57P< EST in preparation for the New Moon on Friday at 1:00AM EST.
Balsamic Moon - This is waning crescent moon which 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 evening. The Balsamic Moon is the COMPOST phase of the moon plant. It is when the nutrients remain in the soil, providing nourishment for the next new seed. Those born during this phase possess the potential to be wise, insightful, understanding and patient. They are prophetic and unique. This phase is end of one cycle and the beginning of another. Keywords for it are: transition, release, transformation, renewal and purity.
It is the phase in a lunar cycle when you must let go of everything on that doesn't deal with the current cycle issues. During this phase you reflect on the passing cycle and prepare for the new one. 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.
Woden's Day - Mercury Day - the Day of Communication and Connection...minor magickal energies are available to defend against psychic attacks.
Mercury Retrograde - starts tomorrow at 2:19AM EST....
