Full Moon Phase – Moon in Scorpio – Partial Lunar Eclipse
Ruling Mahavidya – Chinnamasta
Mercury conjuncts (comes to the same degree in the sky as) Eris today. so by all means be sure to think before you speak. The conjunction of Mercury and Eris is at the Eris Point – the degree of this month’s New Moon. Watch as events and feelings from that phase are revisited today.
Aspects between Mercury and Eris inflame our thinking and have us voicing our feelings in impulsive ways. We tend to get spun up easily. Because Mercury also rules travel, road rage easily comes out. Eris was the goddess who threw the Apple of Discord (no doubt something she thought of on the spur of the moment) at Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite. We don’t tolerate superficial or trifling behavior under this astrological aspect. If something is stuck in your craw, it will want to break loose today, so temper communications with patience and thoughtfulness. Oftentimes, this astrological aspect brings out things that need to be said, so don’t suppress yourself, but don’t go off like a banshee.
So much is happening this month. We are being energetically upgraded and pushed into new areas while simultaneously taking a journey through the underworld with the transit of the Black Moon to the Galactic Center. We are in deep emotional territory and our shadow sides are right in front of our faces today. If you haven’t uncovered your shadow side (and thus, your primary fear in life that holds you back or causes downfall), you will want to go the “Books” tab above and look at the Appendix of my free e-book on the Black Moon. You can find your natal Black Moon and then look up the information for that sign. Recognizing and integrating our shadow sides is required work for anyone on a spiritual path.
Have a wonderful day, everyone, and remember to find beauty.
