Moon in Scorpio March 9, 2015 6:10 am PDT, 9:10 am EDT, 1:10 pm UT/GMT
I can’t decide if I am in IMAX theater or if all of the emotional statements of others are creating the sound of bullets ricochetting around me under the Scorpio Moon. And why not? We are closing in on the Uranus/Pluto square while Eris, Venus, Uranus, the south node and Mars ALL form a stellium in Aries.
Why is this stellium in Aries important under the Scorpio Moon?
Mars is the classical ruler of BOTH Aries and Scorpio.
Aries is associated the outward, extroverted and often more physically directed energies of Mars. Scorpio is the deep, dark, secretive, reflective existential energies of Mars that seek to re-create reality by confronting all aspects of life tenaciously through intuitive guidance fused with empirical knowledge.
In short, Aries if the gladiator that seeks physical and measurable results and Scorpio is the mystic elder of the tribe confronting challenges using traditional methods and psychic precision. Since there are other influences sitting in Aries, their energies will be of a more unexpected and blunt nature. The fire trine between Jupiter in Leo, Uranus in Aries, and Saturn in Sagittarius is being “gonged” by each of the the planets sitting in Aries causing lots of foot or “hoof” in mouth moments. This is when we choose to react or OVER-REACT instead of simply respond WITH MINIMAL DRAMA. The closer we creep up to March 15, 2015, the closer the energies get to 15º when the maximum amount of tension is triggered and released.
Don’t be fooled! The energetic influences are in full swing so watch your mouth, or in the very least, be prepared to take it if you are going to dish it out!
During a Scorpio moon we don’t like to be rushed. People fair better when they take their time , so proceed mindfully or you will find that everyone around you gets triggered into a “Karate Kid” crane pose waiting to lash out emotionally at whomever is in striking distance. Under the Scorpio moon we tend to examine the facts we may react emotionally. People may seek to fulfill their needs using coercive methods instead of plainly stating what they want or need.
Why Is Mindfulness Important Under The Scorpio Moon?
People tend to be emotionally raw, almost as naked as a man jumping out of a royal palace bedroom. Our nature tends to withdraw into our own shadow where we perceive that it is safer. Our intuitions tend to be stronger when the moon is in Scorpio so we tend to accuse, judge and prosecute others based on what we are sensing over the immediately observable evidence.
Yes, we are just like network media under the Scorpio moon; we judge based on popular opinion versus researched evidence, so again, proceed mindfully.
The Good News about Scorpio Moon
Venus is in Aries with Mars creating a continual symphony of flirtation and close…observations. If there are any people that you are currently craving, now is a great time to strike. Dare yourself to make the first move and you will find yourself rewarded with sudden change and shock that may leave your face aching with laughter for days. Jupiter in Leo expands your fortune and opportunity amidst the fire sign energy so don’t let Mercury in Aquarius leave you stuck in the quicksilver sands of “over-thinking,” TAKE ACTION!
Moving at The Speed of Pluto
Pluto/Hades/Dis pater takes 247 years to go around the sun once reminding us that changes under Scorpio’s ruler Pluto often come at a slow pace but that they are absolutely “NON-NEGOTIABLE.” So if you are feeling down, slow or in a general funk you may want to check in with yourself about changes that you must make to be happy. While Chiron is in Pisces, each time the moon goes through any of the water signs we have the opportunity to heal our wounds by acknowledging that they are there and processing them compassionately with peers to shift the vibration towards a positive outcome. Chiron is at 17º Pisces and Pluto is at 15º Capricorn creating a sextile that holds the possibility of transmuting tragedy into triumph.
The Magic of the Scorpio Moon reminds us that we can choose to take on our challenges as a scorpion, an eagle, a phoenix or any of Scorpius’ archetypes. Keep in mind that its powers of healing are second to none!
