Today’s Lunar Guidance for Moon in Scorpio
Moon is now waning in Scorpio – so you may find a band-aid solution gets ripped off, giving you the opportunity to really address the underlying issues. This may present as a situation that is shocking but ultimately necessary if true healing is to occur.
Scorpio moon is the most emotionally intense lunar transit we experience each month, evoking our shadow and affecting us all.
What is the Shadow?
Carl Jung, the father of modern psychology described the shadow as the unwanted parts of ourselves we have banished from consciousness because they’re not valued by ourselves, our family or our culture. I love this definition.
As the shadow often contains our gold – our genius, which we may’ve suppressed in it’s embryonic form if our gifts weren’t understood while growing up by those who conditioned us.
So do not fear the shadow…rather, enter and embrace the shadow by taking note of what people reflect back to you or point out about you, especially if it’s confronting and your initial reaction is to deny it.
Moon in Scorpio is when we’re most likely to be messengers for each other, helping to see the parts of ourselves we have disowned because of shame which leads us to harshly judge those traits in others. Like the saying, ‘Better the devil you know’, the devil is simply our disowned shadow – our personal traits which have become distorted through a lack of understanding and acceptance.
When we deny our own shadow in an effort to see ourselves as all ‘light and love’, we scapegoat our shadow on to others…this is how the concept of the devil began, as a mythical being people could blame rather than own and heal their own darker feelings and emotions. When we understand this split in the psyche, we stop looking for scapegoats and start taking responsibility for ourselves.
