Have yourself a Scorpio Christmas

The Moon is in Scorpio today on Christmas Eve in the U.S. and Chanukah

Selfridge’s store window Zodiac sign Scorpio

SCORPIO MOON is the most intensely passionate and obsessive of all the moon positions. This aspect brings on Black moods, deeply controlling, secretive, can be manipulative, power hungry shadows. It can be very sexually intense as well. If its just you and a beloved well enjoy the passion. We can use this opportunity to watch our family story just like a movie. Wich it is, your life is your own reality show. Watch all the family dramas, the old stereotypical roles everyone plays from the viewpoint of the watcher. Don’t react, just observe. This is dharma in action. 

Scorpio Moon trine Neptune in the a.m.

This is potentially a very mystical, dreamy, soul mate energy or very sad and lonely, drunken, addicted, in denial place. We can be feeling foggy, dreamy, melancholy, deluded, spiritual, hungover and feeling very empathic.  Do be very careful of overdoing it in the alcohol department. It’s a good night of powerful deeply spiritual and lucid dreaming. You can meet enlightened teachers but also demonic forces, Keep your guards up. Record whatever you dreamed about when you awaken.

Moon sextile Mercury 

This brings some helpful energy to Mercury’s Retrograde motion. If you are traveling and many are, people will be helpful and generally congenial.  Do call up old friends and wish them well. It’s important to reach out.

Saturn in SAGITTARIUS trine Uranus in ARIES at 20 degrees This is a BIG ASPECT.

Saturn is the traditional ruler of both Capricorn and AQUARIUS.  When planet Uranus was discovered March 13, 1781, by William Herschel in England, whose last name letter is still the symbol of Uranus, it became the modern ruler of Aquarius in Tropical Astrology.  By looking at their similarities rather than their differences we can really use this aspect to our best advantage. They are in fact the yin/yang, opposite poles of reality.  Saturn is the limits, history, the status quo. Uranus blasts away the old and frees it up, it invents, liberates, pioneers and radically alters the old structures.

Saturn is conservative and Uranus is the opposite. Those who feel Trump is taking America backwards must hold the light of change, innovation, radical invention, and Aquarian ideals that we are all deserving to be on the same playing field, not just the 1% and not just those corporations who “provide jobs” and are therefore given all kinds of tax-Saturn’s realm, leniency. Aquarius energy is inclusive of all. Everyone has a right to be free to be who they want. 

Scorpio MOON sextiles PLUTO 

This puts the Moon and Pluto into the same realm. PLUTO rules Scorpio. This is a very passionately sexual sign. This aspect easily digs up the old family skeletons. Dysfunctional family stuff will be bursting out more than the turkey’s stuffing. Great. This is just what most people want to avoid at Christmas. But where else to recycle the toxic family unconscious emotional shadows than at ground zero? We can use Pluto’s power as the purifier and recycler of the soul and the knower of shades to clarify our own soul, our own validity. Use all the shadows as a means to recognize them but not to be triggered and act on them. This can be challenging but also very transformative and liberating. If you can pass this test, you are truly free and clear and can laugh at all your shadows. Be careful around Trump supporters they are the most vitriolic. But so are Dem supporters these days. Watch and compare the two. It’s a remarkable show.

Moon square Venus in late PST/ Dec 25 in the wee hours 

This is a lovely deeply soulful heart energy. Think of those you love who have passed recently and in your past. This aspect helps us to plumb the depths of unfelt emotions. Let the tears or rage rise up. Squares bring up conflict. Be careful of touching raw nerves 

VENUS in AQUARIUS is also TRINE JUPITER in LIBRA

The overall benefits of this can not be overestimated considering everything else. No matter how much deep-seated trauma and emotional gut wrenching hurt a Scorpio Moon can dredge up. This aspect between the planet of Love and the PLANET of GENEROSITY brings peace, and goodwill, and largesse allowing everyone the space to be who they are which can overrule the Moon. But remember this detachment and being NICE for the sake of appearances can also be too superficial. The real emotional deep rivers of lava are still there running and burning underneath everything. You may leave feeling very wounded afterwards.

SATURN in SAGITTARIUS is squaring CHIRON

The old patriarchal family wounds will be triggered. Be careful of talking politics, which is Saturn in Sagittarius current preferred Karmic mode of torture and tests. Most people will feel hurt and offended by any positions these days.

JUPITER in LIBRA is opposite URANUS in ARIES

Bolting from the table because of a slight is very likely. Uranus in ARIES is impulsive and rash.The clash of the TITANS.  There will be clashes between liberals, and conservatives. Someone will have to attempt to be the conciliator, counsellor, or go-between. Divorces may be triggered. 

Sounds like it will be a heavily emotional Christmas climate. Be prepared. Remember to wear psychic armor at all times. Practice being loving and seeing everyone in your family as a wounded child who is unconscious and who only appear to be an adult. You can get through this, the Scorpio Moons purpose is transformation. 

MARS is in PISCES is very close to the SOUTH NODE of the MOON

Mars rules the Scorpio Moon. Use this energy as a conscious action to let go of past unconsciousness, martyrdom, fail for spite, power games, obsessive ego games, hiding out, blaming others, using addictions, and being co-dependent. Get rid of all of these avoidance techniques. Life is a rehab center. Just let go of all old karmic residue and boldly move on. This is a very spiritual Warrior position. Mars in Pisces is strong enough to be vulnerable, and compassionate. We can get close to the wounded masculine. At the appropriate times we can let down our shieds and our guard. True intimacy is possible.

Sending you blessings for a great Chanukah too.
