Intense Need to Separate Emotions

The Astrology

  • The New Crescent Moon is half way through Scorpio and facing retrograde Uranus in Taurus.
  • The Sun, Venus, and Mercury in Venus-managed Libra continue to prompt inquiries into what is needed or wanted in all types of relationships.
  • Mars is finishing its transit of Mercury-managed earthy Virgo.
  • Jupiter in Sagittarius spreads hope.
  • Saturn in rocky Capricorn draws attention to the foundations and structures of what is building.

The Vibe is SEPARATION of INTENSE EMOTIONS

The New Moon was re-born last Saturday in Libra, where the interplay of light and dark, masculine and feminine energies, soul and spirit, balance and one-sidedness, you and/or others are the focus. Today, it’s halfway through Mars-managed Scorpio and facing/opposing retrograde Uranus in Taurus. While the Moon is in Scorpio, it’s in its element (a water sign) but at cross purposes with its own nature. We associate the Moon with emotions and with maternal, nurturing archetypes. Scorpio is a feminine energy that’s managed by intense, masculine Mars, the planet associated with combat and the warrior archetypes. That brief statement may help you to better understand the nature of Scorpio. If we assume that the design of our Universe is intentional, and it is, then this Scorpio Moon time has a purpose. It’s illuminating one facet in the continuum of time that we experience as days and years. Libra focused on and exposed our attention to opposites. Now, Scorpio is cutting through emotions that need to surface and be managed.

In Greek mythology, Medusa is a cave-dwelling, snake-haired Gorgon seductress who eats sailors. That’s Scorpio personified. There wasn’t much to like about that image. In the stories about Medusa, the hero who severs her head (Mars) is cheered and revered. But Medusa had another role. Her image was used as protection against the negative, much like the modern evil eye. She represented a dangerous threat meant to deter other dangerous threats, an image of evil to repel evil to protect loved ones (the Moon).

How are you feeling today? Are you Mars or the Moon, or a bit of both?

In what aspect or facet of your life do you feel a need to separate (Mars) from and/or be more objective about how you nurture and care for (Moon) yourself and others?

Or, in what aspect or facet of your life do you feel a need to protect yourself?

I’m here only as storyteller
