Moon is waning in Scorpio & when she’s this close to the end of a lunar cycle we can really experience ourselves in the death phase of our psyche.
So what is the death phase? This is when we question everything to which we have given our trust & commitment. When that which is a burden or hindering our growth becomes intolerable, not just on an energetic, psychological & emotional level but also on a physical level with our body sounding the alarm through tension, illness or pain that we must confront the truth of a situation & take action accordingly, allowing the chips to fall where they may in order to honor our authentic essence above all else.
Since we are in the extreme polarities of the solstice Dec 21-23: a time of extreme feminine expression in the northern hemisphere & extreme masculine expression in the southern hemisphere, this Scorpio moon gives us an opportunity for insight into how we dance with the polarities of being receptive (feminine) or active (masculine).
Without a practice of monthly sharing circles & rites of passage the majority of folk in our modern culture are stuck in a ‘rebellious teenager’ phase when it comes to the expression of gender polarities. This is the number one reason for relationship breakdown…allow me to explain:
An example is, Men who rebel against their overtly ‘masculine’ fathers operate out of their feminine traits to the point of becoming so passive they seek to please others to the point of not knowing their own mind, feelings & needs. They become so doubting of themselves they become passive, constantly looking to others for direction. This creates a burden on those around them as they are always expected to lead, so they feel resentful & feel an increasing lack of trust in the other to respond as a situation requires causing them to shut down & distance themselves as a form self protection.
Creating healthy masculine and feminine aspects in ourselves allows more balance and less inner and outer conflict.
Blessings on your day
