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.”

– Jean Shinoda Bolen

New Aquarius Moon – GROUPTHINK?

The new moon lands in Aquarius (Jan 24th, 21:42 GMT) joined by the Sun (obviously) and Mercury. The planets are shifting signs and the pressure is starting to ease. Change is still the main theme, as it has been all month, but it is starting to feel more doable, more acceptable.

This would be a good time to find the others. But not at the expense of (your) truth. That is probably not an oxymoron.

“A group experience takes place on a lower level of consciousness than the experience of an individual. This is due to the fact that, when many people gather together to share one common emotion, the total psyche emerging from the group is below the level of the individual psyche. If it is a very large group, the collective psyche will be more like the psyche of an animal, which is the reason why the ethical attitude of large organizations is always doubtful. The psychology of a large crowd inevitably sinks to the level of mob psychology. If, therefore, I have a so-called collective experience as a member of a group, it takes place on a lower level of consciousness than if I had the experience by myself alone.”
