Crescent Moon Phase – Moon in Scorpio
Today’s energy requires skillful maneuvering by wise old owls. Mars will enter Scorpio and our bodies may interpret the shift through feelings of anxiety or heightened fears. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and the combination of Mars and Pluto has the potential to get pretty ugly; therefore we energetically register the shift from harmonious Libra to domineering Scorpio. This doesn’t mean Mars’ transit through Scorpio is going to be a negative experience.
As I mentioned yesterday, this is going to reform/refine our level of personal power. Scorpio is the energy of transformation! But since its ruler, Pluto, is the ruler of the Underworld, the transformation will come from a deep level and there may be other things hidden deep below that come up with it. This factor is what brings in the feelings of anxiety and fear. The hard part is standing by (letting it be) while the transformation occurs. Remember, everything is changing form now – everything – but it is leading to something better. By the time Mars enters Sagittarius on October 8, we will be much stronger individuals – physically, mentally, and spiritually.
It’s a spiral sort of process. People are going to respond to this shift of Mars by attaching to the aggressive, war-like aspect of the energy and this is often felt most strongly the day a planet changes signs. So this is where wise owls use wisdom to witness but not react. The Sun has moved into Virgo, opposing Neptune, making the next couple of days highly spiritual. This is the time when you want to turn on your conversation with our Source, the living planet.
To faciliate this, let go and let Gaia (Sophia). Mars in Scorpio brings in a lot of control issues, but as we engage more fully with the planet, we come to realize that we are not in control at all. We seek only to align with the vision of the planet and assist in her fulfillment of that vision. In this way the pressure is off. We follow along in service to a higher order. There’s a lot happening today. When too many people around becomes too much, seek some solitude; but when too much isolation becomes heavy, seek out your Source. Wise owls know this happens outdoors.
