We’re sliding closer to the Full Moon in Scorpio, my friends. Depth of feeling can mean intense connection to the reality of things, but can also mean a connection to the hidden, the dark, or the painful. Scorpio is the sign that rejects superficiality. It drags us down into the depths to point out, clearly and honestly, the truth of the matter. This is a time where we are both connecting to those deep truths, as well as releasing, or making manifest something from a cycle that began back in November.
Think back to where you were at that time. What has shifted, what has grown on you? There is likely something about your life that is radically different now than it was before. Consider the intentions you set around the Scorpio New Moon, and ask yourself what has bloomed since then. Training your mind to that kind of awareness can be a really powerful tool to remind you that you are growing, and that you are capable of overcoming so much.
In the evening, the Moon trines Neptune. This is a lush and gorgeous moment for poetry, art of any kind, music, dance, and empathetic connection. Spend time nurturing your soul, my dears. Connect with people who heal you, who see you. Neptune shows us that empathy is the way of the future.
Around the same time, Mercury trines Pluto. Here, a pathway opens up between our minds, our tongues, and our truths. Pluto is also one of the rulers of Scorpio (The other being Mars), and on our way to the Full Scorpio Moon, the planets seem to be setting us up for a feeling of honest, no bullshit engagement with ourselves, our ideas, and our language. You are brilliant. The world makes us hide ourselves. Remember that Pluto when in supportive aspect like this is revolutionary. He dismantles hierarchies that hinder rather than give depth. Considering the state of things these days, I’d say this is an amazing time to start practicing your hand at radical thinking. Utopia is not a gift. We must strive for it together, and in doing so, leave behind the cruelty of oppression, inequality, and fear. Sending you all love.
