Waxing half-lit Moon in Scorpio10 Aug 2016, by moon&sky in
Feel, discern, unfold
The first quarter Moon is the growth phase. Roots venture deeper, the stem shoots up to create a new strong body, and leaves unfurl and reach out. All of August is about making things visible, giving voice, creating form. Our focus at this time gives rise to long legacy.
There’s a lot of action as development quickens and it will be important to attend to grounding and alignment with core truth and values. The potential for progress is high (with Mars in Sag as of Aug2) though we may encounter some seeming or actual delays (Saturn shifting to direct). Discernment, discipline and patience will be key.
Earthy energy (4 planets in earth signs, 3 in Virgo) supports us in grounding the pull to action (4 planets in fire signs). Scorpio Moon draws us to hidden knowledge and we are more able to unearth wisdom within (big support from Virgo energy + Neptune mysticism/creativity and Pluto insights). Feel in, feel through, let felt-sense guide (esp since mind can get blurry w/ no planets in Air signs + other Neptune opp Merc & Venus) . As always when manifesting in form, there may be hard-edges and hard-spaces, so be sure to give heart lots of room to unfold (Venus-Saturn square all week). Cultivate beauty and nurture self-care.
Stand in the moment between light and dark
and focus on the inner spark within your heart
Feel into roots that venture deeper
unearthing wisdom secrets to you, their keeper
Golden flowing as they now rise
through stem and heart and leaf and budding flower
Awakened now the love and truth of heart-known power
Let clouds move in to soften your gaze
and invite magic in from the cosmic maze
Tap into the abundant reservoir and
burst forth brightly among the stars
Flow like water and sparkling rain
through all that is your Life’s domain
Nourished fully by heaven and Earth
Shine now into your new birth
Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light
May you shine forth from deep roots and
with great flow this 1stQ Moon!

PS. Perseid Showers peak night-morning Aug11-12. The meteors tend to strengthen in number as late night deepens into midnight, and typically produce the most meteors in the wee hours before dawn. The showers have been going on since July and will still go on for awhile but this is when they’ll be at their peak. And this year expecting an outburst of Light coming to us; up to 200 an hour! Woo Hoo! Enjoy!
