Scorpio Balsamic Moon
—January 26

As the phoenix rises from the ash—something has changed, and it is irrevocable… or should be.

This moon’s very essence implies that something has died, that something significant is no longer, that something dis-eased has been amputated or otherwise eliminated… that something lingering underneath it all has been confronted.

Even through all of the airy Aquarian energy, it’s an old belief or perspective or mindset—you’ve sacrificed something for a fresh, brand new vitality… or painfully realize and understand that you need to.

Or, honestly—it could be the revolutionary willingness to open to someone, or to open in some way; to embrace your wounds and inner vulnerabilities, confronting these with love and forgiveness rather than anger, anxiety, or ambivalence, or apathy…

You could be feeling a little… I don’t know?—strung out? You’ve likely been through a lot, either mentally or emotionally, and yet, with today’s lunarly connection to Neptune, you may be somewhat mystified or bewildered by what you’ve just endured… 

The degree through which this connection occurs associates itself with ‘emotional responsiveness and vulnerability; stilling one’s heart so one’s real desires become clear; a sensitivity to the emotional environment; being emotionally open; a steadfast pursuit of noble goals; speaking directly to the situation; and spiritual attunement…’

As Hunter S Thompson so soberingly said, “buy the ticket, take the ride… and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well… maybe chalk it up to forced consciousness expansion: tune in, freak out, get beaten.”

Then the moon moves on to join the newly Scorpio South Node in conjunction for the first time since the Nodes have moved, suggesting that “one has to deal with unregenerated elements—these should be carefully managed—they can also be controlled by the power of the mind…” though one should eventually be feeling ‘relief from tensions’ soon enough.

Real dishes break. That’s how you know they’re real.❞ ——Marty Rubin
