Waning Moon Half-lit in Scorpio

Welcome Waning Moon Half-lit (exact 210204 @0937 PST) in Scorpio


… release, re-source, replenish, transform… 


At waning Moon half-lit, it’s time to pause, breathe deep and find balance. Time to review, sort, and wrap up. Time to clear the energy field and release, release, release. The pull to slow and move inward is strong (waning Moon, Scorpio, Merc-R). Time to enrich self-care, rest, re-source and prepare to enter the feminine deep.


In Scorpio there’s increased pressure to shed old skins. It’s time to peal away, break, shatter and release all that deters, limits, or confines our fully Being. We are called to go deep into the heart of the heart and the root of the root; and to seek the seeds of transformation. We are invited to scatter ourselves to the stars and prepare to sprout new wings.


Aquarius Sun (+4 other planets in Aqua) also urges us to transform. Aquarius brings increased intuition, a strong future focus, and the power of manifestation. Both cerebral Aquarius and deeply feeling Scorpio are strong, passionate and full of conviction (fixed signs). Both call us to sift, shift and purify our hearts and minds from unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, and patterns (w/ extra push from Merc-R); and to seek freedom and enlightened ways of Being. Together they help us to cleanse the past, transform our fears, and create a new and better future.


Yes, the work of letting go, changing, and transforming is challenging and often difficult. At this point, we’ve had a good deal of experience of the push-pull of the old-new battle ground; of emotional highs and lows; and of expecting the unexpected. Now, at this waning Moon it’s time to slow and let go.


It’s time to reach for the calm beneath the waves. Time to trust in the protections of our guardians whomever they be. Time to tune to beauty, Love and Light. Time to nourish ourselves and (especially now) time to rest, rest, rest. Time to wrap ourselves in a shimmering chrysalis. Time to feel into renewal, freedom and possibility. Time for seeds of transformation to form. Time to prepare to dream and new future into Being.


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


Dive into this sacred place
Enjoy self-nourishing space


Rest now in all that’s limitless
transforming in your chrysalis


Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light


May you rest deeply, nourish fully, and
may your dreams be filled with hope,
Light & Love this Moon
