February 13: The moon enters Scorpio

February 13: The moon enters Scorpio



The moon is trine the sun at 7:17 a.m.

 The Libra moon makes a perfect trine aspect with the Aquarius sun this morning, forming the waning gibbous phase of the lunar cycle. This is a time of the month when energies and reserves are still strong, but there is a feeling of coming to a completion and closure with certain projects before we begin to wind down toward the new moon phase. This air trine illuminates topics of social connection, idea, innovative thought, and it may be a lively energizing day to have conversational breakthroughs. Our thoughts and emotions come into a potentially cooperative harmony in order to bring some clarity.

The moon is square Saturn at 10:46 a.m., and sextile Mars at 1:40 p.m.

 The later morning holds a passage of some emotional friction and resistance when the Libran moon comes into a square with Saturn in Capricorn. There is a feeling of wrestling against heavy responsibility, and our efforts to stay calm, balanced, and poised may be challenged. This square, however, may draw some unresolved matters to a head, which can prod new, helpful initiatives, as the moon comes into a helpful sextile with Mars in roving Sagittarius this afternoon.

The moon enters Scorpio at 4:37 p.m., and is opposite Uranus at 9:54 p.m.

 Later this afternoon, it’s time to go deep as the social, curious, and active energies of the Libran moon shift and go inward as the moon passes into Scorpio’s dark and mysterious territory. A week of trying to balance practicality with emotional equanimity is starting to take its toll, and it’s time to go quiet, insular, and reflective to mine our inner workings for new insight. Awareness may be catalyzed tonight as the potent Scorpio moon comes into a fleeting, yet revelatory opposition with Uranus. Some new perspective rises up from the shadows that may make all the difference when dismantling emotional blockages over the next few days.
