Aside from the fact that we leave the last Mercury retrograde behind (finally), I find myself a bit sad at approaching the end of August 2012. While the year has been challenging–heaven knows it has been rough, I can feel us slipping down that slippery slope that has us at Halloween one second and then at New Years, lickety split! But I’m getting way ahead of myself! Wednesday the Moon shifts into super sexy Scorpio at 12:54 AM, with Wednesday being a five star day and Thursday a three star day (that also sports a lengthy void of course period). Take some time out for self care work (exercise, Reiki, Qi-Gong, etc.) and remember not to start anything new on Thursday.
Water sign natives (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) get the most benefit from the Moon’s transit through Scorpio; Taurus natives may find this an uncomfortable transit. Intense, secretive and transformative energies are the rule, so break out your black, brown, dark gray or red clothing and accessories for maximum impact. Bloodstone, tiger’s eye, opal, jet or obsidian crystals carry the perfect vibration to match Scorpio’s intensity, while vanilla, gardenia, honeysuckle, violet or lemon balm incense or essential oils will help you keep your balance in Scorpio’s deep emotional tides.
Wednesday 22 August 2012 the Moon sextile the Sun at 12:13 AM offers subtle intuitive prompts for you to take action on and then the Moon becomes void of course (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT). The Moon very quickly hops into Scorpio at 12:54 AM bringing a watery Moon-Neptune trine at 3:58 AM; be sure to have pen and paper bedside to capture those interesting dreams you have before the sun rises.
The Sun enters Virgo at 10:07 AM (Happy Birthday to my Virgo readers!) bringing our focus to holistic health, service and dependent care issues for the next month. Therapeutic work, research studies, or even a mid-day romantic adventure benefit from the Moon forming a sextile to Pluto at 12:59 PM. Later you’ll either have big ideas or someone will talk your ears off when Mercury forms a sextile to Jupiter at 3:57 PM; engage the smug, verbose co-worker at the water cooler, if you dare!
Thursday 23 August 2012 late night communications jump the track when the Moon squares Mercury at 12:54 AM; you might want to retire to bed early rather than trying to talk your way out of a messy situation. Love and money look really good when the Moon trines Venus at 2:34 AM; The Moon is void of course after that last aspect, so spend your day finishing up old projects or resting; no new project launches at this time!
Later, Mars moves into Scorpio at 8:24 AM and you may find your love life gets very busy now till 6 October 2012 when Mars switches up and moves into Sagittarius. Research projects and metaphysical studies profit from the Scorpio Mars placement as well.
