In the pre-dawn hours, the Scorpio moon trines Saturn in Pisces, encouraging us to rely on our instincts. Because many of us will be asleep at this hour, we might receive insights from ancestors or guides in our dreams. Our unconscious mind is working overtime to deliver psychic messages. However, with Saturn in trine, we will be able to discern which messages will help us step into our authority, and which are generating fear that will impede our progress. Distinguishing between paranoia and intuition allows us to handle issues with maturity. We show up better in our relationships and in our work because we are not afraid of a challenge. Quite the opposite: we know we can handle whatever conflict comes our way.
The cosmic weather is then quiet until mid-afternoon, when the moon sextiles Mercury in Virgo, improving communication. Although we tend to be more introspective under the Scorpio moon, Mercury’s influence supports assigning words to emotions and instinctive concepts. Ideas that ordinarily only seem to make sense in our inner, subconscious landscape, can be put to paper or discussed with friends and family. This is an excellent time to voice opinions that are typically difficult to verbalize. We can discuss memories, past events, or intuitive hits, while coming across as completely sensible and down-to-earth. Sharing our feelings and listening to others share theirs becomes an avenue for healing. Everyone walks away from the discussion more empowered and uplifted.
