First Quarter Moon Phase: step out, take action

Moon in Scorpio

Ruling Mahavidya: Dhumavati (The Goddess of Death) and Kali (The Destroyer)

Skill: follow the prescribed path

Negative Imprint: rigidity, being locked in to ways of thinking and doing

Positive Imprint: movement, allowing new ways of thinking and doing

There is a "prescription" for today's energy: connect, consult, choose, and change.

Connect - For the past three weeks, our physical bodies have borne the brunt of intense energetics.  We've been in an "upgrade" process.  The first part of the prescription is to connect with our physical body and stretch it out, work it out, or conduct whatever level of activity you can.  Yoga and deep breathing are particularly good for this.  Old energy and air lingers and hides in the corners of our bodies.  The first order of business is to clear out the cobwebs.

Consult - Now that we've strengthened our bodies, we want to straighten out our minds by consulting a source of wisdom - something ancient or something that is based on ancient knowledge.  Refer to a source, a book, nature, or a divination tool in search of information that is important to you now.  Mercury is moving direct again and is re-contacting (by opposition) the Galactic Center.  Mercury transited the Galactic Center between June 23 -27, 2014.  Think back to what was going on for you then and how you were feeling.  All of this has been re-worked and re-arranged during Mercury's retrograde.  Messages and information that are needed right now are finding their way to us for consultation.

Choose - Deep in our hearts, each of us knows there is something that is trying to shift or change.  The third part of the prescription involves making a choice to move with the shift, a choice to change.  This is uncomfortable for us.  But the change is for the better.  In some way, acknowledge your choice to shift as needed.  It is an act of power to choose.

Change - I've repeated it like a mantra since the New Moon in Aries in March, but change is the keyword for the year.  This month is one of the four key months of radical change (the lunar months of change are the Moons of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn).  So the final step of the day's prescription is to make a small (or big) change to follow your heart's guidance.  The thing that needs to shift or change within you may be an emotional state.  It may be a belief about yourself.  It may be a relocation.  It's individual to you.  It may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but it is important to your growth and development.  Lean toward the change and the rest will flow more easily.

Follow the doctor's orders today and the restructuring of your mind, body, and spirit will proceed fluidly.  Repeat as needed.
