At the last quarter, the moon rises at midnight, peaks at dawn and sets at noon; this is true all over the world, no matter your time zone. At this station, the obsidian moon in Scorpio squares the analytical Aquarian sun. This is the last moon phase in the Aquarian sun cycle. The moon initially moves into Scorpio on Feb 13, two days before the quarter moon. She will then move on to Sagittarius the same day of the quarter moon. This last quarter phase prepares us for a new moon in Pisces on Feb 23.
Both Scorpio and Aquarius belong to the fixed modality. To be fixed is to be strong, assertive, and full of conviction. Fixed energy in the skies means that it is time to fortify our being.
Scorpio is the chrysalis weaver. Without Scorpio, we would never transform beyond hatred, base emotions, ego, toxic control dynamics. Scorpio says: look at your shit, acknowledge your shit, do your work, kill off the bad shit, and then, in the blackest black of deadest night, our wings begin to sprout. Scorpio is the hag, gurgling prophecies from the muddy root of the root of the root. She takes us in, no matter how we arrive, and gently rocks us to sleep. She kisses our scars with poison lips until everything falls away. She has seen everything, knows everything, loves everyone.
Deep, dark Scorpio takes us on another journey now, whispering in the night: do you remember the womb, the tomb? This is where I live. And so it is. Creature of infinite water, return with great haste from whence you came. Consumed by your own power, scatter to the stars and be reborn. At the edge of all edges, feel everything.
In the Greek myth of Scorpius, Orion the hunter threatened to kill every animal on Earth. This displeased Gaia, so she sent an enormous cosmic scorpion to attack Orion. Try though he might, Orion could not defeat the scorpion and his murderous plans were foiled. The reason that Scorpius and Orion lie at opposite ends of the sky is so that when one rises, the other descends below the horizon, effectively precluding further conflict. Yet Scorpio hangs on, digging her pincers into ancient wounds. In despair we cry to the sky for help; this is where Aquarius enters.
The water bearer is a creature of great intellectual and creative impulse; an infectiously curious explorer. He dares not distract us with pains from the past, but turns our head toward exciting futures. Aquarius is fearless; he does whatever he pleases, and thus has extraordinary powers of manifestation. Aquarius asks: why not? He reminds us that, at any moment, reality may be inverted, subverted, transgressed. There are no rules, no limitations. It is time to ascend!
This moon phase signals that something big is coming: a move, a shift, a revolution. Nothing about this juncture is quiet or ordinary. Be prepared to pick up and go (usually travel is involved whenever Aquarius is in town). Call in MOVEMENT and ADVENTURE. Go backpacking, get away from the world. Let the winds of Aquarius fill your lungs and mind, fresh and electric. Drink plenty of water to honor Scorpio’s element. In meditation, focus on the sacral chakra.
