Moon in Scorpio - turns us inward, deepens our bravery, curiosity and focus. It's time to investigate deep in our psyche, dive underground and deal with life's ugly challenges. We can get surly and sting if overloaded. Clear and compost deadwood of soul and/or garden. Refresh in solitude and contemplation. Scorpio weaves the visible and invisible worlds together. We see through and into the roots. Direst 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 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 energies so fight urges to be suspicious, secretive and moody. This is a time of regeneration and cleaning out of emotional debris from the previous cycle. 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 are also done during this period of time. Those born under a Scorpio Moon love a mystery; they have the guts and laser beam focus to handle any challenge, but need to choose carefully where they concentrate their attention. They need time alone, but not to isolate. Their challenge is to be curious rather than judgmental about those who operate differently.
Sun Day - is the Day of Intent, Creation and Renewal - Creation Day .... so plan on using those Scorpio energies and vibes coming up early this evening and do some psychic work to clear old debris. You have until late afternoon on Tuesday, Valentine's Day, to use this energy - the Moon enters the Last Quarter on that day.
Scrying in Water - a practice of receiving messages or information by focusing attention on a reflective surface and seeing what kinds of images come up. I find a good way to practice this is to look into a black clay bowl filled with water - you attempt to see what images come up to the surface of the water. Probably all you will see the first few time you start practicing is water. This can be a difficult form of divination. But like so many other types of magickal practices that you want to be good at, it takes practice and focus. Part of being a witch is knowing when to trust what your experiences and your intuition. This doesn't happen overnight. It only comes with practice, practice and more practice Most novices are not able to scry right away and some, maybe a lot, won't ever be able to do it well. But that is okay because we all have abilities we are a natural at and others that we never do well. So let's say you think you see something in the water - but how do we know if we really are seeing messages or are they something we make up in our head? Or if we are daydreaming? That is where practicing over and over comes in - you can learn to tell what's real from what isn't. And sometimes you still can't be sure.
But this something you go through when you start meditating - so you ask what is the point of meditating? This practice is to clear your mind, to change your mental status, to open yourself up to noticing what's going on around you and how these things are affecting you. And so in the same way you are doing this when scrying - you open yourself up to receiving information you normally wouldn't receive because you're so busy thinking about other things and doing other things. So many times this is always there - we're just aren't always tuned into it.
So learning this witchy skill doesn't happen overnight. It only comes with practice, practice and more practice. No one can scry right away but keep working at it and especially at time like these next couple of days - Scorpio energies will help your mind to focus on opening itself up to messages.
