Third Quarter Moon Phase: realignment, revision, responsibility
Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (with Matangi)
There are several things happening today:
Venus finally makes the exact square with Mars. This energy has been building for over a week and brings turns, changes, and shifts in relationships. It’s Scorpio-Leo energy, which is intense, fiery, assertive, often deep and dark, but ultimately shines light. Events, situations, and circumstances in relationships that have transpired since last Friday (9/20/13) are pivotal and anything dramatic (Leo) should be scrutinized (Scorpio).
The Moon is in Cancer and is approaching a square to Uranus, opposition to Pluto, and then conjunction with the Black Moon. Whoa! Everyone’s shadow side (core fear) is heightened to some degree today. Things happen unexpectedly, quickly, and surprisingly. Issues, feelings, and themes related to needs and neediness and how well one is supported (self-supported and supported by others) continue. We are more emotional while the Moon is in Cancer, but with the addition of these other planets in the mix, it can go too far. Keep it real, grounded, and respectful. This is strong energy for all of us to navigate, but let me sound a warning to Cancers, Capricorns, and those with the Black Moon in Cancer or Capricorn. This is one of your “labor pain” times that I’ve mentioned. The Moon will be in Cancer until about 5:00 EDT/9:00 am UTC Sunday, September 29, 2013, so remember that you are in a process of rebirth.
You may feel directed down an new path, perhaps one that you hadn’t thought of or thought only existed in your wildest dreams. To get to this point, you’ve had to “blow out” your mind or reach beyond your comfort zone. It’s really important to think big today. No limits and no restrictions, just blind faith. Trust in the knowledge that the Wisdom Goddess Shodashi is rewriting your life lines. There’s nothing wrong with basking in the light of Shodashi. In fact, it’s an opportunity you don’t want to miss. Her energy is pretty sublime.
Can you find beauty and love of all life in the frenzy today? Unlike the movie, when we unplug or unjack from the matrix, we have beauty and an abundance of life all around us – not a gray, dingy, inorganic prison. Don’t be fooled that it is otherwise.
