Gibbous Moon in Scorpio - Yesterday the moon entered the Gibbous phase at 2:17AM EDST
and entered the Fixed Water Sign of Scorpio at 8:31AM EDST.  The Gibbous phase asks us to
analyze, prepare (for the coming Full Moon) and trust. LOOK WITHIN.  This phase is the BUD
of the moon plant, the pulse of life tightly wrapped, wanting to expand.  The Moon in Scorpio
gives us attitude and brings out our primal side; it sharpens our curiousity and our edges, our focus
to the point of obsession. Fluff won't cut it now; get real or let it go. With the Moon in Scorpio, dig
deep; Scorpio weaves the visible and invisible worlds together. We see through and into the roots.
Direst this energy away from obsession and towards creation. Dig in your garden, plant roots, feed
the soil and compost. 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 regenation
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.

Saturn Day - Saturdays are traditionally days to work on protection, remove obstacles, bind
troublesome or dangerous individuals and banish negativity. Saturdays are like a magickal 'let's
clean house' days. Any magickal messes left lying around that need to be addressed or any problems
that need to be cleared up, these are best dealt with on the day devoted to Saturn.
  Saturdays are the particular day of the week for protection and for dealing with more serious
magickal matters. Light up some patchouli or myrrh-scented incense and wave the smoke around
your house or apartment. It will break up any lingering negativity or bad feelings. Crumble up a
few dried mullein leaves and create a circle around your home, or scatter it across the thresholds to
keep prowlers away.
   Burn a few black candles to repel manipulative intentions or unwanted advances. Try growing a
blooming cyclamen plant to encourage Hecate's blessings.
   If you want to expand your magickal skills, then start learning how to incorporate all of this information into your life on a day to day basis. Put your own unique spin on things. Decide what
are your enchanting specialties are, then apply them to your Craft each and every day with wisdom
and style.
