Third Quarter Moon in Scorpio – HOMEWORK

The day before Mars joins the pile up of planets in earthy Capricorn (and two days before Mercury turns retrograde) the moon reaches the third quarter point, in Scorpio, (Feb 15th, 22:17 GMT). There is a lot going on beneath the surface, and you may find that the focus of your activity becomes more private and home-based at this time.

Getting things straight and doing all those little annoying jobs that are easy to put off and ignore, but which, when done, help life run more smoothly is the order of the day. Make a list and pick things off in manageable chunks. I find when I do this that it is easier to allow myself to spend time doing things that are not “productive” in that sense that so many people think is the only important way to be in the world, but which bring me joy and raise me up. Procrastination, on the other hand, often causes me to feel guilty for neglecting the things I know need attention. I know which I prefer to feel.

“When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.”

First Quarter Taurus Moon & Candlemas/ Imbolc – TAKE CARE

For a short month (though not as short as often, as it is a leap year this year) there is a lot happening in February. Right at the start of the month, on the 2nd 1:42 GMT, the moon reaches the first quarter point, in Taurus. This moon is in opposition to the Scorpio ascendent, and, with Uranus sitting fairly close to it too, I feel like some disruption to our sense of security (collective and personal) is likely. This might be in the form of health scares or financial instability, or both.

It would be pertinent to pay attention to the foundations relationships are built on, and how that impacts the dynamics in that relationship. Underlying issues might rear their heads now. That is a good thing, though it might not feel like it at the time. More secure and loving footings are needed.

“Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.”
