Aquarius First Quarter Square

© Lunar Intentions – Aquarius First Quarter Moon

As the Aquarius Moon (the water bearer) approaches the Scorpio Square … emotionally our containers overflow, spill to the ground, and from there she will attempt to evaporate them by what we KNOW to be true. Knowledge placed there by the outside world. As fast as they spill out, she will use her powers to rationalize, suppress, deflect, project them into the ether. Well, this Scorpio Square will have NONE of that. Those dark sides will instead pool around you until you embrace them as your own or drown in them.

Leading up to the Square that peaks on Monday November 7, 2016 at 11:50 am Los Angeles, 7:50 pm London, and 6:50 am Sydney on November 8th, we remain in the ‘Struggle Phase’. A time where situations in your life confront you to the point of action/release. Where through conscious listening and deliberate actions, we have access to integrating our intentions into our reality. This commonly results in the experience of a struggle and creates the opportunity for healing, then for a day after the Square, we move into the Action Phase … a time to move forward.

Keeping in mind the intentions squaring off are the ones created at the beginning of this lunar cycle on the Scorpio New Moon (conjunct Mercury) surrounding our deepest desires and those imprinted during the Aquarius New Moon at the Lunar New Year on February 8th, 2016 when we emoted what we know about our place within society. For the day leading up to the Square, we will continue to encounter instances of perceived breakdowns playing out in the areas of life depicted by the house those degrees occupy in your chart. Then the day after, we will be challenged to take discerning actions to break up the past and move towards our intentions.

For you see, once set in motion, there is an unofficial universal law that pulls toward and/or reveals to us that which impedes our intended future. It’s like a universal authority that’s saying ‘you want that … well, things have to shift’ and ultimately those ‘things’ are rooted in our beliefs. Our life experience is nothing more than a projection of our beliefs and when we transform our beliefs … what was once not working, becomes open to new possibilities.

The challenge exists in uncovering the beliefs and letting go of attachments to anything/one that breaks away during said ‘shift’. For it is when we hang on … that we suffer. Lucky for us, or maybe not so lucky, every lunar transit our beliefs manifest in our lives through the interplay between the sun (conscious) and moon (subconscious) energies. Right now the Sun is in Scorpio and the Moon is in Capricorn.

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 (all history) by our energetic state and what we were emoting. Both on an individual and collective level. Collectively, the subconscious experience of Aquarius has us breaking from routine, experiencing visions of insight/the future, and entering into spontaneous moods. Think the mad-scientist out to save the world!

Remember, individually all of the energies you experience are focused through the imprint made at your birth by the presence of planets, their aspects, and the house placement within each sign … from both the Sun (Scorpio) and the Moon (Aquarius). The resonance of that energy is determined by your beliefs, emoted with each new moon, whether they were created intentionally, or not … and the manifestations of those energies will occur in your life according to the houses.

What was happening in your life at the beginning of the year on February 8th, 2016? What were your dominant emotions? What beliefs are you encountering … right now? What houses do Scorpio and Aquarius occupy in your chart?

These energetic influences are yours to RECREATE by who you are being in your conscious mind (Scorpio Sun – inner psyche) and your responses to unconscious perception (Aquarius Moon – societal truth) as the moon is NOW in the sign of Aquarius. You are shaping your future life experience and have access to bring your energetic being into alignment with a higher state … by being conscious of the energies at play and intentionally shifting who you’re being!

Events over the next several days will reveal your beliefs through what is playing out in your life. Giving you an opportunity to be responsible for them, forgive yourself and others, and intentionally transform them through the face-off between Scorpio and Aquarius energies.

To receive the most out of this phase, keep your heart and mind open to the universe revealing the beliefs you have that stand between you and the fulfillment of your intentions. These are at the core of every ‘struggle’. Review your assets and find what within you will help you to thrive. Stay present to the commitment behind your intention and take swift action after the First Quarter Square peaks!
