With the sun transgressing into Scorpio, just moments after the Libra Sun wrapped up it’s Last Quarter Square with the Cancer Moon, forming a t-square with the Mars/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn and a Grand Cardinal Cross given Uranus is opposite the Sun in Aries … the moon prances into Leo. After having our security catapulted into a new space, thanks to the focus of cardinal energy and the transformative powers of Pluto/Uranus, we are pulled to review our intentions with regards to our heartfelt self-expression (Leo Moon) and soul (Scorpio Sun). This phase is commonly referred to as the ‘crisis of consciousness’, where you recognize how far you have, or have not, come, and wonder … what needs to change to make the difference? AND are challenged with taking the actions necessary to bridge the gap.
The sun is the source of creative energy, forming our conscious mind, and while in the fixed water sign of Scorpio we dig deep beneath the surface, explore the shadows, uncover the truth, remove the decay, and shine light upon the darkness. These intense times have us facing our mortality, awakening our curiosity, and transforming ourselves, others, the world … with truth. At a depth that only Scorpio energies can bring us to.
The moon is the conduit to the subconscious and is activated by the sun’s energy to shape our perceptions from the beliefs stored in that space. Those beliefs have been planted there every new moon throughout our lives (history) by our energetic state and what we were emoting. Both on an individual and collective level. Collectively, the subconscious experience of Leo is cheery, and we want to be on center stage. Our inner child surfaces. We can be spontaneous and mischievous. Our creative side finds expression. Our joy comes when living from the heart. We focus on fun and we live large!
As an individual both energies are focused through the imprint made at our birth by the presence of planets, their aspects, and the house placement within each sign. The resonance of that energy is determined by our beliefs, emoted with each new moon, whether they were created intentionally, or not.
These energetic influences apply to both the sun (conscious mind) and the moon (unconscious perception) for the next two days. They shape our experience and give us access to bringing our energetic being into alignment with a higher state. They reveal our beliefs through what is playing out in our lives. Giving us an opportunity to be responsible for, and intentionally transform, them through the activity of each phase.
Currently, we are reorientating. We are identifying all that has arisen to take us out of our comfort zone since we initiated our intentions at the Leo New Moon on August 2, 2016 and the last Scorpio New Moon on November 11, 2015. These intentions will show up in areas of life the house(s) Leo/Scorpio rule in your birthprint, expressed through the element of the moon (water = emotion), and fueled further with the energy of any planets and the aspects activated in that space at the time of your birth.
During this Reorientating Moon Phase, we review what is manifesting, or not. We step outside of our consciousness and note where our view and/or experience of life has transformed. We take note of what needs to change to have our reality become aligned with our intentions.
How has your self-expression expanded in your life over the last few months? How has the last year transformed your inner shadows? This is a powerful time to analyze, to perfect, and achieve improvements.
These next ~2 days are when tangible results have the potential to manifest! A time where we simultaneously have the opportunity to reap what we’ve sown and be responsible for the bounty it may, or may not, be. The reaping of anything requires action and these days are the time to invest in … or come home empty handed. An opportunity to reach, to be bold, to do what you know you have to … to bring your intentions to life.
