Massive change is upon us …. This Waxing Quarter Moon in Scorpio is a critical checkpoint as we make our way into Eclipse season.
A time of transformation, change, and growth, eclipse season acts like massive broom in our lives—sweeping away what is no longer needed and ushering in new beginnings.
Because we’re now in the “shadow” period of two major eclipses occurring in August 2017, we’re already beginning to feel the impacts of these energetic harbingers. With eclipses slated for August 7th and 21st, and Mercury, the planet of communication, stationing retrograde on August 12th, issues surfacing now are part of a much larger story that’s unfolding.
Pay close attention—EVERYTHING right now has meaning!
:: The Sun ::
With the Sun in the optimistic sign of Leo traveling closely to Mars, the spirit of Summer comes to a full roar, complete with courage, creativity, and play. Allow the presence of Mars to ignite your passion and purpose, and to encourage leadership and self-confidence.
Warning: The cosmic combo of the Sun and Mars may incite humorous uproars of laughter, dramatic and playful outfits, fun times at parties, and the ability to trust your leadership instincts.
:: The Moon ::
The Moon in Scorpio supports deep, meaningful conversations, intense, healing sexual experiences, and the ability to see past the facade. A Scorpio Moon helps you to know the truth instinctively, and to use this knowledge to support you to make better decisions, encouraged by depth and intimacy.
Unlike the upbeat demeanor of Leo, Scorpio penetrates into the dark. Let the wisdom of this Moon connect you to your emotional truth. Explore your sexuality—even if it’s just by yourself.
Turn on your seductress. Don’t be afraid of darker emotions as you evaluate what’s real for YOU. Embrace it all!
:: The Square ::
With the Moon in Scorpio squaring the Sun and Mars, the season’s sense of play and enthusiasm gives way to deeper emotions and intuitive truths.
In contrast to the lighthearted, high-vibe nature of Leo, the Moon traveling through intense Scorpio brings depth and grit. It asks us to look at our shadows, as well as the shadows of others. While this contrast may feel awkward, it’s a potent combination that calls forth the essence of authenticity.
:: The Message ::
With the Sun and Mars squaring the Moon in Scorpio one week before the Lunar eclipse in Aquarius, the time is now to look deeply within and determine where you are (and aren’t) aligned with your truth.
Let the bold, brash Leo energy encourage bravery and fun, and the deep emotional waters of Scorpio identify where you are misaligned with your authenticity. Beyond that, let the playful vibes of Leo, and the mysterious demeanor of Scorpio inspire you!
Dress with provocative flair. Allow your inner seductress to lead you forward. Let your playful yet intense sexual side out. Trust yourself. Let the energy build.
Next week we approach a massive cosmic clearing. You ready?
