Waning Moon Half-lit in Scorpio

Welcome Waning Moon Half-lit (exact @1417 PST) in Scorpio


…release, nourish, create, transform…


Moon half-lit calls us to pause, find center and seek balance. During hir waning it is time to review, re-sort, and release, release, release. Time for resting, rejuvenating and renewing. Time for reflection and stillness. Time to enrich self-care, re-source and prepare to enter the feminine deep.


In Scorpio she is the mistress of the deep. We are called into deep waters and deep feelings; into both strength and fragility; into the heart of the heart; and with all the Earthy energy about, into the root of the root of the root as well. It is time for exploring, for releasing, and for transforming.


Together with Aquarius Sun, intuition is doubly heightened as is the desire/need for freedom. Both Aquarius and Scorpio are assertive, full of conviction, unpredictable and magnetic by nature. While one calls us to face, clear and transform our fears and ourselves (Scorpio), the other detaches from rules and outcomes and turns us towards the future (Aquarius). Together they help us to let go, transform and elevate.


This is our gift in this moment. Recent times have been tough and many have been hard hit (Saturn-Pluto effect). Let go, transform, elevate. And yes, the energy can feel quite heavy (as of tomorrow 5 planets in Earth signs,4 in Capricorn) and many are hard-pressed to meet the challenges of old patterns, complex issues, frothing emotions and wafting fears (ongoing Sat-Pluto effects). There’s no sugar-coating the fact that these are challenging times.


The good news is that there is a slow easing of pressure. And there’s incoming support that helps us to let go, tune to the heart (Sun>Pisces soon), release blocks and keep our minds clear; and provides drive, focus and opportunities to reach ‘higher ground’ (Mars>Cap tomorrow + Cap stellium). And, also good news, now it is waning Moon time.


Time to slow and let go. Time to reach for the calm beneath the waves. A time to seek and align with heart-truth, Spirit, and highest integrity. It is a time to fortify ourselves. Time to turn to beauty, serenity and creative works. Time to transform and elevate.


At waning Moon let go and unwind
all things that constrain or pinch or bind


Feel into sweet release
Weave all that gives you peace


In the pause between Light and dark
find your heart’s most central landmark


Time to dive into this sacred place
Time to create self-nourishing grace


Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light


Wishing you deep releasing,
nourishing self-care,
beauteous re-weaving, and
sweet transforming this Moon
