Have you ever had a day where everything went wrong, and it seemed like everyone had lost their minds? Have you ever wished there was a way to predict when one of those days was coming your way, or to circumvent all that crazy?
I've got good news for you: there is a way, and that way is the Moon.
In astrology, the Moon represents our instincts and emotions. By keeping up with the moon's location in the sky, we can prepare ourselves for what kind of feelings are going to be swirling in the air around us.
Knowing the Moon's sign as it passes through the zodiac can also help you plan ahead. If you know the Moon is going to be in Aries on Friday, then you can plan to do activities that come naturally to that sign, like exercise and starting new projects.
This post is the first in the Moon Sign series. Every Tuesday night, I'm going to post good things to do while the moon is in a certain sign, until we make it around the whole zodiac.
Ready to start planning? Since this is the eighth sign of the zodiac, here are eight activities to try out under a Scorpio moon:
Get your accounts in order.
Scorpio rules banks, taxes, credit, and joint resources, so now is a great time to get your books up to date or craft a plan for getting out of debt.
Scorpio is the sign of regeneration, so anything you can do to keep your body and soul in tip-top shape is a worthwhile investment now. It might be time to pay our general practitioner a visit, or even make an appointment for a Reiki attunement.
Be a detective.
What topics do you find fascinating, Spock? The energy of Scorpio is highly focused, so this is an excellent time to do detailed work or in-depth research.
Scorpio is the sign of death and rebirth, and sometimes we have to let parts of ourselves die so the new stuff can be reborn. Making sure your diet is free of toxins and your home free of chi-blocking clutter can make a huge difference in your journey towards transformation.
Let yourself be reborn in some way, however big or small. You could finally dye your hair that beautiful amethyst shade you've been eyeing. Or you could sample an exotic food you've been curious about but too nervous to try. Go ahead and heed the siren call! When the Moon is in Scorpio, there are no taboos!
Consult the oracle.
Moon in Scorpio is the best time for magic of all kinds, especially fortunetelling and the divining arts. Do a Tarot reading for yourself, or light a candle and try scrying into the fire.
Get thee to the boudoir.
Scorpio is the sign of sexuality. No additional explanation necessary.
Play in the shadows.
Scorpio is the ruler of those things that lie beneath the surface and hide in our subconscious. Do a little journaling and see if there are any inner demons you're ready to release. The good news is that Scorpio loves a good purge.
