Third Quarter Moon Phase: reassess, revise, realign

Moon in Scorpio

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Kali

Skill: lighten up

Negative Imprint: dissociated, bossing people around, avoidance, pressure, cut off from reality, division, addressing only the surface issues not the core issue

Positive Imprint: faith, signs and signals, organization, enjoying life, creating/appreciating art and music, love, love of life, conviction, mentoring, the fairy realm, access to higher consciousness

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "an Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe" (self-empowerment, personal sovereignty)

A general lightening of the Capricorn energy comes today with the Sun moving to the degree in the sky of the symbol "a nature spirit dancing in the mist of a waterfall."  A certain effervescence pervades the day, and along with it an offering of wisdom that we need about ourselves and our lives.

At any point today, if things start to become heavy, cumbersome, or stuck, shift the energy by lightening up the situation in some way.  Humor, creativity, playfulness, and fun are good ways to do this.  Balance will return and progress can be made.  But first we have to recognize that things are becoming mired and weighed down before we can shift out of it.  It's an excellent opportunity to practice "merging the two worlds" in a real way.

In many ways, there are two worlds in play today.  One "world" asks that we be ultra-responsible, decisive, and efficient.  The other "world" wants us to share, express, deliberate, and then create.  Conflicts and push/pull dynamics can result from the collision of the two worlds.  Today's misty waterfall could become an outright deluge.  Maintaining respect for others and their beliefs and opinions will alleviate the potential flood.

But it's really not a good day to have to make big decisions or moves.  There is a lot of fence sitting and mending of fences with things up in the air.  But if you must make a decision or move, call for reinforcements - for back-up.  Talk it over with someone first to make sure you are seeing things as clearly as possible. 

Clarity about external, worldly things is hard to reach today.  Clarity about internal, spiritual things abounds because key information that we need is floating in the air like bubbles.

Mercury and Venus remain in conjunction until Mercury stations retrograde next week on Wednesday, January 21, 2015.  When Venus and Mercury are conjunct (in the same place in the sky), we re-evaluate our relationships.  Thoughts, feelings, and projections about our relationships are in focus.  The ways we balance and nurture our relationships undergo revision.  Power and control dynamics within relationships try to equalize.  This will continue while Mercury is retrograde through February 11, 2015, just in time for Valentine's Day.

What will effervesce for you today?  Lighten up and see what happens.

(A side note to today's energy is that the banksters historically use an energetic signature that is in effect today to manipulate markets.)
