Forecast for Wednesday, February 3rd
Scorpio Disseminating Moon
ॐOracular Mantra—the power of patience is its own reward…
Something that you might enjoy beginning through the best of intentions, or the most honorable of ideal or resolve may now be offering murky, manipulated, or outright maliciously opportunistic boons of advance…
But there’s also opportunity to adjust appropriately to avoid such advantageously disastrous consequences down the road.
Today’s Scorpio moon is what shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera considers the Witch’s Moon, a moon when “we confront what we would do—and how far we would go—if we were in situations of powerlessness and oppression…” and, in tandem, at the opposite end of that concept, “if the option of magical power was open to us, how would we use it…”
Kaldera asks you to consider how you use “small pieces of power every day…”
❝Be silent, if you choose; but when it is necessary, speak—and speak in such a way that people will remember it.❞
Today’s potentially shadowy and darkening moon offers a square, first, to Venus—now in Aquarius—through a degree which could possibly “take the values for granted until the day [it is chosen] to assert an individuality—by scorning the traditional rituals.” However, although “you may find yourself entering realms that you have only imagined or not truly dreamed possible…” the circumstances—or matters at hand—that you are navigating are requiring a fresh perspective or a renewed, revived, or readjusted attitude.
Not to say that you shouldn’t or mustn’t be asserting your individuality—only to do so with an understanding of who you really are, toward who you are working on becoming, in regard to accomplishing these changes in freedom as harmoniously as is possible—think win-win-win scenarios.
Again, the opportunity to embrace change and self-direction can be completely and entirely within your power.
Further, the moon connects to Saturn by square—which illuminates Saturn applying a square to Uranus—currently, through a degree which more seriously supports these notions, associating itself, more realistically and devotedly, through “the passionate search for new values which, at any level, promise a more abundant life.”
The sweet, sweet surprise of unexpected reward… more to come from this particular unfolding in the following weeks.
❝You need to spend time crawling alone through shadows to truly appreciate what it is to stand in the sun.❞
Rudhyar shares the more deeply intuited lunarly side, that “always, at this Scorpio level, the yearning is for an ever more intense and all-absorbing union—a yearning which motivates a search for more effectual means to achieve as total a feeling-experience as is possible… it dramatizes the capacity in man to tear himself away from the known and the familiar, gambling everything on a vision or dream.”
From the mindless motions of the known and knowable—to the honest confrontations with that which is unknown and utterly unknowable… this is the stuff of either squish or scandal, indeed.
Perhaps now you’re recognizing the murky, manipulating, and malicious potentials—like unruly waters without proper guidance—when one becomes so desperate within one’s own fight for what is rendered ‘right’… today’s Scorpio moon could be powerful enough to convince you… however, unruly waters—when guided and secured—are powerful enough to spark electrical current.
Always, always—the choices are endlessly yours.
❝To light a candle is to cast a shadow…❞
——Ursula K. Le Guin
And finally, this empowered moon connects with Jupiter by square through a degree which could inspire feelings of suffocation… “sometimes it’s essential that we admit to the fact that we are losing control…”
Honestly, this could be but a breaking-point beginning toward a lunarly piggyback opposition to Mars only hours later, occurring just before 7am here on the west coast…
Whatever triggers could become traumatized, to be candidly—however inappropriately—dramatic, and whatever has been titillating is coming up tantalizing… for better or worse.
Above all, especially toward any efforts being made for change and more authentic modes of self-direction, whether you have considered these possible or not—a small piece of power available for you today is to keep your cool, to rise above whatever it is, and to choose your words wisely.
It’s likely a win-win-win scenario.
These feelings of control lost could be attributed, simply, to a lack of communication, or to the manner in which you choose to communicate… new channels of communication could be needed.
How will you use your power today?
❝Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is ‘timing’… it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way.❞
