September 19th, the moon slides onward from its already dark phase into brooding Scorpio. Over the last couple of days, in the moon’s crawl through Libra, our drive to nurture a sense of relational feel-good-ness has challenged the stark clarification of what’s happening at the root of it all. This has, at certain moments, given rise to a greater need for compromise, and a clarification of the intentions behind interpersonal communication.
The moon’s journey into Scorpio now has us taking time to be with the parts of the ground that are profoundly and slowly changing. With much junk going through a process or shifting around or purgation, we’re forced into an emotional reckoning with how our deepest, most primal level of passion involves itself in what we keep, shift, toss or offer up to the gods. At the emotional level, this can be manifested as moodiness, slowness, brooding, and a deep awareness of the lower organs. Even in wanting to hold on to the essence of something, can we nonetheless allow its form to shift and learn to let go through the moods?
This is a good day to be respectful of each other’s moods, and to resist asking for rational explanations for the mood swings of your loved ones. Take the conversations about what to add, subtract or shift as meditations on the dance between holding on and letting go.
