Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, complete

Moon in Pisces

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: rectify or make something better

True Alignments: support, sincerity, protection, last minute saves, creativity, beauty, offerings, self care, recognizing a good thing when you see it, ability to redirect the course, the mysteries of life

Catalysts for Change: always chasing something else, mistrust, propaganda, unsupportive, shake ups, diving in without looking, self-sabotage or working against oneself, control issues, loss of faith or belief, drama

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month:" a symbolic battle between swords and torches" (becoming enlightened to something; the might of light)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending)

Today we enter the seventh of the eight phases of the Moon, the Third Quarter phase, which essentially signals the end of this lunar month.  The eighth Moon phase, the Balsamic Moon phase, exists "out of time" somewhat, because it is the transition phase into new energy.  We revise and realign before preparing for the New.

Today, Mercury, which has newly stationed direct or is appearing to move forward in the sky once again, returns to the degree/energetic theme for this month: "a symbolic battle between swords and torches."

Mercury rules our thoughts, thinking processes, and communications.  We think about things in a new light today.  We see and understand something that has eluded us.  The psyche wants to "put down" a battle it has had with itself.  The energetic of the "symbolic battle between swords and torches" helps us overcome anything in which we are mired.

This may come about as a result of something "falling down," "falling short," "falling away," "shaking up," or "taking a downturn."  The Sun is discharging the energetic of "an airplane performing a nosedive."  There can be a tendency to self-sabotage when this frequency of energy is in effect.  Defiance is more common, but the higher purpose of the energy is to take care of ourselves or save ourselves from something.  We pull up.

New directions (even with things that seem too good to be true) are offered with the Earth discharging "a theatrical representation of a golden-haired goddess of opportunity."  Each of us is playing out a story - a narrative.  Internal or external shifts happen today to put us on the path of opportunities.  Using discernment is always best, so look twice at things before acting.  We do not want to be fooled by an act, play, or performance.

To assist, Venus discharges "an old fashioned well," which tells us that the golden opportunities and the new perspectives we gain are those which are supportive and sincere, not degenerative and halfway.  We have a plentiful "well of experiences" from which to draw and discern.  The hardest part may be believing that something better could actually result.  We rarely expect "better," but it is time to rectify that.  Today's energetics help.

Today, Spirit turns over the controls of our magic carpet rides.  We can take them anywhere we would like it to go.  All of the world is our stage.

Disseminating Moon Phase: share, communicate

Moon in Aquarius/Pisces (5:08 pm ET/9:08 pm UT)

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: launch a lot of love

True Alignments: patience, breaking things down in to steps, personal fulfillment, pursuing a dream, creating a vision or idea, assistance, overcoming difficulties, able to see in the dark, the inner child, following the heart

Catalysts for Change:  going into something unprepared, rushing, foolish risks, things that are obscured, hopelessness, feeling that there is no point and giving up, exhaustion (what needs to change?), going in circles

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a symbolic battle between swords and torches" (becoming enlightened to something, the might of light)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending old patterns and paradigms)

The core dynamic for today is wanting to get what we want, but not knowing what we are going to get.  It is wise to remember this before getting ahead of oneself today.

The Sun is discharging the energetic of "a quiver filled with arrows."  At varying levels, this motivates us toward obtaining, achieving, catching, seeking, or experiencing something we desire.  This is stronger for some than others today (depending on how one's astrological chart is being aspected).

What actually results from what we achieve, catch, seek, or experience is more unknown than it normally would be.  This is because Venus is discharging the energetic of "workmen drilling for oil."  With this dynamic, what we find is uncertain, possibly even risky.

The combination of the two energetics tells us to be fully prepared, consider all potential consequences, and make sure their is a point to it before engaging it.  The aim should be true.

Instead of launching into or toward something impulsively, we can follow the energetic of the Earth today, as it disseminates the energetic of "a mother leads her small child step by step up the stairs."  We understand that when this Sabian symbol degree is activated, it is best to take one thing at a time.

This solar-lunar year is like a magic carpet ride, and today it is natural for things that interest us to cross our flight path.  Wanting to learn somethingis a strong influence.  Past interests or hobbies may "return" for us to resume.  All of this relates to what is meaningful to us.

Yesterday I discussed Mars' re-entry into Scorpio (joining the Black Moon in Scorpio).  Scorpio has a pointer - a stinger.  With the Sun at "a quiver of arrows," pointed conversations, sharp stabs, and piercing emotions all too easily ensue.  Again, we want to think twice.  These energetics bring anger to the surface quickly, especially until the Moon moves into Pisces.  Then, that energy tends to turn inward, and can become gloomy and defeatist.  When Scorpio and Pisces energies intermingle, emotions become tidal waves from which people seek escape.  Overconsumption of alcohol would tend to exacerbate this effect.  This is a holiday weekend in the US, when alcohol consumption is already higher.

Love arrows of consciousness fill our quivers.  Let's launch a volley of them today, wise owls!

(P.S. I will be back tomorrow for the shift to the Third Quarter phase.)
