The Sun in Scorpio squares the moon in Aquarius. The moon will rise at noon in the north, peak at dusk and set at midnight in the south. Quarter moons prompt definitive change. According to CafeAstrology, quarter phases represent a “crisis of consciousness.”

At the quarter moon I always mention the possibility of emotional turbulence. This is even more prescient given that we’re in the Scorpio season and she’s the queen of volatility. Luna pulls us into tight corners just to test our endurance.

Worth repeating:

… Scorpio is the water bearer’s predecessor, wrought from the soul’s gut. Scorpio whispers in the night: do you remember? Do you remember the womb, the tomb, the hallowed space where words and time dare not go? This is where I live. And so it is. It’s time now to connect to eternal source, black as moonless night, blinding, the force of life Herself. Creature of infinite water, return with great haste from whence you came. Consumed by your own power, obliterated, scatter to the stars and be reborn. Edge of all edges, feel everything …

Scorpio is a devilish vixen. She likes to drag out old stuff. She digs her pincers into wounds which have just begun to heal. At the last Aquarius-Scorpio juncture, I found myself plagued by health problems which I had cleared and taken care of, or so I thought. When we are revisited by work we feel we have already completed, an emotional toll begins to build. We sputter in exasperation, what am I doing wrong?

I have a much better feeling about this first quarter in Aquarius. I think the water bearer will successfully wrangle us out of the little black scorpion cove at the bottom of the frozen ocean. Aquarius acts on all intellectual and creative impulses. He is a traveler, a daredevil, infectiously curious. Rather than distract us from adventure with deeply rooted pains from the past, he turns our head once more in the direction of excitement.

There are a few things worth mentioning about Aquarius. He is hard to please. He is insatiable, always wanting more. He is often late or lazy when he feels superior to his circumstances or present company. Aquarius talks, almost endlessly. He is brutally direct and honest. But the water bearer is also perfectly fearless, to the point of being un-shockable. He does whatever he pleases, and thus has extraordinary powers of manifestation. Aquarius says: I want to know. And he asks: why not?

The solution to your woes is moving – if possible, go get in some water – the ocean, some hot springs, a natural pool. Highly possible that you know the solution but can’t act on it yet. In this case, observe the Self minutely. What else can we do…! I also recommend wearing white or blue tones.

Aquarius is a social animal, so we’ll all be out partying. Who knows, it could be even crazier than Halloween. See you in the forest :)
