Moon has a brief moment of being void but spends the rest of the day waning in Sagittarius.
The emotional tides are getting lower by the day so do try to give your loved ones & housemates a wide berth over this period as everyone will feel better if they can get a bit of space.
As the lunar energies subside our sensitivities increase & our personal energy drops, making us more prone to irritability. So do put on calm music, encourage quiet activities like reading, jig saw puzzles, walks in nature, baths, crafts & journalling & the time you do spending together communing at meals will be so much more enriched by your time apart.
In terms of daily aspects, we have Moon is forming a sextile to the Sun as well as a trine to Lilith and Chiron so you may be feeling more harmonious, restful and accepting. The moon is also forming a sextile with Mercury so if you do need to communicate your feelings it will flow more fluently.
Moon is in Scorpio often elicits where we feel empowered in our lives & where we do not. This makes it a good time to examine where you give your power away.
In other words, how are you playing small, running stories of ‘poor me’ keeping you in a stasis of victimhood? Where are you stuck in dependency? Be it financially, emotionally, physically – handing your authority to something outside of yourself & giving it the ability through your perception to ‘make you’ feel good or bad / big or small.
We are each the creators & creatresses of our own lives. We are responsible for the stories we perpetuate & life experiences we are creating. For example, if we subscribe to drama as a way of getting love & attention we will unconsciously create more struggle & hardship. Whereas if we make a conscious decision to not settle for anything less than a divine experience that is what we will manifest accordingly.
Scorpio transits ask us to take our power back. This is usually done by taking right action such as speaking our truth or addressing an issue proactively that’s been causing us to feel minimized. Remember, no one can take your power unless you give it to them. Consider taking a moment to consider who you’ve put on a pedestal & then resented for not being perfect. Your parents, partner, teachers, friends etc etc it is always the easier option to play small & criticize others for not fulfilling your projection that they should be perfect. It is much harder to instead focus on your own shortcomings & take full responsibility for living a truly authentic & empowered life, regardless of the choices of others.
Blessings on your day – may you stand in your full authentic self. For everything is easier when we walk in alignment with our truth.
Moon briefly begins the day void (not aspecting any planets) as she moves from Libra to Scorpio. This may create feelings of uncertainty, particularly in partnerships as shadow truths start surfacing to be expressed. What is a shadow truth?
Honesty which may elicit fear of hurting others but to not express it hurts oneself. As always, there’s nothing to fear except fear itself.
Scorpio offers us the opportunity to take things deeper which creates more authentic intimacy with self & other. Like the old adage, ‘the truth will set you free’
Yes, these socially unacceptable feelings are better out than in, but do be mindful of the effect your emotional venting may have on those around you. If possible find an appropriate time & place to express any frustration, hurt, grief or anger you have been harbouring so it doesn’t come out inappropriately, leaving you feeling like you’re in the sin bin. As always embrace the opportunity to dance with the shadow & love the rejected parts of yourself & others.
Moon is still waning in Libra, making this a great time to review what was out of balance last year & how that impacted on you & those around you…especially while the sun is still Capricorn, the sign of discipline & structure, helping us to implement daily, weekly & monthly actions to anchor more balance in the coming year.
In all of existence there are two poles; active & passive & we tend to embody one more than the other. So it helps to make a conscious effort to do more of the other polarity in order to experience greater balance & harmony. The more we polarize into either over-doing or under-doing, the more tension & conflict we create – both internally & externally.
Libra also asks us to consider how well we co-operate with others & take time to consider things from others point of view. If we are not doing this, we’re likely to create a situation during a lunar transit in Libra where someone impresses upon us what it is like from their point of view to rouse us from our cock-eyed view of reality.
We’ve got a few challenging aspects currently. Luna is also forming a square to both Pluto & the Sun as well as Saturn which may bring up intense internal emotional struggles and feelings of separateness, so trust that you may need to discuss / confront last year’s disappointments & regrets so you can be accountable for your part in them before you can move forwards without blame, victim-hood or resentment toward others.
Just as sometimes we need to lance a boil & let out all that has been festering in order for true healing to occur rather than just a band-aid solution. (Apologies for leaving you with that graphic visual.)
So maybe declare today, ‘Opposite Day’ as a 24 hr commitment to become more balanced & do the opposite of what you would normally do in any given situation. For example, if you usually talk – listen. If you usually lead – follow. If you usually criticize – accept. If you usually avoid eye contact with strangers – look them in the eye & smile. If you normally wear black – wear color.
The moon is currently waning so this is generally a time of coming back to the self. A good time to schedule some free time with oneself to just BE…to listen to what your inner self feels like doing rather than what the mind says you should be doing.
The more of this kind of quality time with Self we can set aside the less stressed we are & the easier we cope with things not going according to plan.
If you find that you find it hard to not be constantly on the go try scheduling in the time with yourself just as you would with a friend or colleague in your diary.
Often it is this need for time with Self that sees many stay up til the wee hours which habitually is not good for our endocrine system which resets itself at midnight only if we’re in a deep sleep state. Look at how you can gift yourself some time out of time – which is why faery tales start with the words, ‘Once upon a time’ to transport us to a place beyond this reality. If it’s been too long since you really had some time out (that didn’t involve a naughty corner or court penalty) perhaps sit & read a faery tale.
Consider going to your local library if you don’t have a storybook at home & opening the book on a page with the intent, ‘what wisdom do I most need from this book’. This is ancient Celtic oracle tradition.
