Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, reassess
Moon in Scorpio/Sagittarius (11:45 am ET/4:45 pm UT)
Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Matangi (The Goddess Who Takes Care of Details)
Skill: bring balance
Positive Imprints: confidence, endurance, completion, applied creativity, following intuition, gaining awareness of something, satisfied desires, basic interpretations, simplicity
Catalysts for Change: class systems, servitude, neglect, rocky roads, running on empty, ignoring the physical body, dissatisfied
Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "an old adobe mission" (projecting plans into the future, inner spiritual retreat)
Ironically, as the last three days of this year's hyper-dominant, aggressive energy of "the ruler of a nation" is completing, today's energy favors pure intentions and innocent motives.
Balance tries to be restored today to places that are out of balance or are overcompensating. Is something out of balance for you? Does something need to be adjusted? If a breath of purity and innocence blew through, what would change? What would it cause you to do?
Balance within romantic relationships is particularly highlighted with this energy. A transformation is trying to occur within hearts. The energy aims to restore and rekindle dimmer flames. It also aims to redistribute the "fuel" of heart fires, so that both people share in giving and receiving. If the relationship heavily tilts toward one person doing most of the giving and one person doing most of the receiving, this issue will surface for revision (though it may mask ask another issue).
Balance within the body is also highlighted today, so if you have been neglecting your body, make up for it today. Your body will thank you because today's energetics amplify any effort to strengthen the health of the body. All bodies are connected, so when we work on the physical body, we are simultaneously working on the emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies.
Balance within our work comes today when we bring a creative element into the logical realm. Projects or tasks that have been mired in detail and need a little creative boost receive it today if we draw down the mental chatter and draw open space for something new to enter - to change it up. Mercury has stationed direct and things are beginning to untangle, bringing air and area for movement.
The Moon will conjunct Saturn at 7:30 pm ET/00:30 am UT at the degree of "an old owl up in a tree." As the day progresses, wisdom seeks us, though we may be too weary to receive it. It's best to not overthink things after the Sun goes down wherever you are tonight. Be the wise owl in the tree, observing and taking it all in, then turn it over to a higher power when you go to sleep. Let go and let the field transform.
The field of consciousness is shifting as we energetically close out the past year and prepare for a new (and exciting!) year. We continue to hold the line as the year abates, vigilantly watching the patterns change, and remaining firmly connected to nature and the beauty it brings to help us live in the full, present moment.
