3rd Quarter Scorpio “Madwoman’s Moon” at 7 degrees on January 27, 2019 at 1:10 PM PST/4:10 PM EST/9:10 PM UK
Welcome to your week of “Letting Go” as you move into harmony with the surrendering power of the “Madwoman’s Moon”. The essence of this 3rd Quarter Moon at this degree is “Quiescences”. Quiescence is a “quiet spell or state”. It’s used often to mean “dormancy,” or the quieting of a symptom during the winter months ([cue the Honoring the Season of Winter Mini-course!]). The power of this beautiful and deep week, is pulling you inward to calm your mind with the calm waters of the surrender power of the Scorpio 3rd Quarter Moon.
The Moon’s Sabian Symbol enchants you with this essence and appears as “A Calm Lake Bathed in Moonlight”. Stop for a moment and feel this message coming for you. The “Madwoman’s Moon” desires for you to know that real Love is a cosmic unified power which emanates within your Soul and within the Souls of other human beings who can reflect this light of true love. Think of the great mystic Rumi’s poems of his love for God. Practice being present with a calm mind so that this supernal light may be reflected through you during this 3rd Quarter lunar week.
3rd Quarter Lunar Dynamics:
Release ~ Let Go ~ Forgive
Third Quarter Moon dynamics embrace the powers of Letting Go, Releasing and Forgiveness. This lunar stage focuses on the wounds outside yourself by drawing you inward to feel who may have hurt, offended, diminished or neglected you. Ask yourself where you may have done this to another. It’s a two-way mirror that gives you your power back. This lunar phase week helps you to empty your ego and allow the Universe, your Angels and Guides, to assist you in feeling more supported.
Scorpio Madwoman’s Moon
The “Madwoman’s Moon” is the Scorpio moon in its 3rd Quarter phase. Scorpio’s natural energy is to be alone and very able to handle life with much innate power. In this phase, the Moon is pulling your inward asking, “Where has your Spirit been broken? Are you ready to surrender to having to do everything alone?” This is the moment when you become okay with not being super strong. It’s the moment when you realize that your super stealth psychic abilities are no match for the intensity of the outside world. The Madwoman chooses to reach out of her internal Underworld to connect with another through trust. The Madwoman has to trust that she is not alone in this world and that there are good, heart-centered people who are here to help her heal and feel safe. Who do you trust? Reach out to those honorable people in your life who hold the sacred bond of trust with you. Ask for their support and rest in the arms of their strength so you may replenish your Soul.

Moon at 7 degrees Scorpio:
“A woman in a hot bath. Outside, snow is falling”
The “Madwoman’s Moon” shows you how to create your own atmosphere around yourself that helps you be shielded from any harsh or unfriendly conditions in the outer world. This is an especially good message for Empaths. To be safe, always question your motives for wanting to be alone. Ask if this is a desire to hide from the world. Protect yourself this week so that creative and spiritual agendas can be carried out through your good intentions. KEY: When you let go of your need to depend on anything outside yourself, you find within you a deep nourishment that protects you even in the midst of the most harsh environments.
Pluto rules this week’s Scorpio Moon. Pluto wants you to realize that each moment holds promise and possibility. This knowledge is your power antidote against focusing too much on the promises of the future, or the failures of the past. Embrace the sweetness of each moment and you will enter fully into the reality of the now to bask in its meaning. Taking a hot bath will feel so powerful this week, too!

Sun at 7 degrees Aquarius:
“One who experiences much pain and discomfort as wings sprout on their back”
The Aquarius Sun comes to help you let go of any personal limitations that are difficult and create fear within you. The Sun’s degree believes without reservation that you are capable of change. You are encouraged to go through every process, no matter how hard it is. To enter into a new way and a higher state of being requires new abilities and skills. The Sun’s light has a clear sense of what your skills are and how to develop them. Tune into and embrace the Sun’s energy this week. KEY: You are growing more and more into our true Self. Find your identity by filling with light.
Uranus is the ruler of the Aquarius Sun. Uranus wants to tell you that there is no running away from what is changing within you. Embrace the unknown and have a complete willingness to try something different. Your Shadow Self will emerge and be redeemed when you realize your body is of the earth, and your Soul is not a prisoner of the earth. Allow nature to heal you and connect you to a timeless wisdom. — *Check your back for your Angel wings that are sprouting!
*MAJOR SUPER TIP: The acupuncture point, Small Intestine 11, is the point I love to call your Angel Wings. It is located in the middle of the scapula (on both sides of the body) and usually holds a lot of tension from unresolved emotions from the heart. Gently massage this point to release the flow of Prana. This will benefit your heart to hold that supernal light of true Love.
Lunar Nodes & Uranus-Pallas Athena
A Cardinal Grand Cross, or Cross of Creation, forms in this lovely 3rd Quarter week’s chart. The Lunar Nodes form an octave of deep harmony at 26 degrees on the Cancer-Capricorn axis. Uranus, the Liberator of your Higher Self, and the Goddess of Wisdom, Pallas Athena come into harmonic alignment at 27-28 degrees on the Aries-Libra axis. These four planetary leaders come to help you open up to your wisdom to see the expansion plan of your Soul now through May 2020. The 3rd Quarter Moon’s energy says it is time to reflect, listen and go more powerfully inward to get clarity on your purpose to move forward over the next 18 months.
What I find most interesting are the ruling Planets of the four Cardinal signs coming into a harmonic agreement. Mars, ruler Aries, is with his beloved, Venus, ruler of Libra. The Moon, ruler of Cancer, comes into alignment with Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn. What I see is the current version of you is Mars and Venus ~ that developing Co-Creator Human Being who is rising up into the next dimension of evolution. The Moon and Saturn are the Elders, the more ancient Ascended Master parts of you that are teaching the younger parts of yourself how to mature and evolve. Isn’t that cool?!!
TRY THIS! First, find the Lunar Nodes in your natal chart (Cancer and Capricorn ruled Houses). They are acting as the Elder Wise Masters instructing your inner Feminine (Venus) and your inner Masculine (Mars). Your Cancer House is in charge of working with the Feminine Wisdom of your Libra House now. Your Capricorn House is in charge of unwinding past life patterns with the power of awakening your inner divine Masculine (Mars) in your Aries House. What do you find as you look at your chart in this way? Do tell! I bet it is fascinating!
**As an example, in my own chart, this is what I have discovered and what I am reflecting upon this week. My Cancer ruled House is my 2nd House of safety, security and financial well-being. This house is representing the deeper layers of my feelings of self-worth and deservingness that were created in my childhood. The Cancer North Node Elder is helping me now to evolve past my childhood psychological foundation around worthiness with the help of creative wisdom found in my Libra ruled 5th House – which is my natal South Node of past life patterns – to reconnect with all my childhood joy of many lifetimes of being cherished and wanted. Yummy!! ~ so as I reflect upon all those previous lifetimes of being cherished, I heal those parts of me that felt neglected, unloved and forgotten (cue the New Moon’s Forgotten Child!)
Next I focused on Saturn working in my 8th House Capricorn ruled home to unwind deeply held emotions of feeling disempowered in past lives. Saturn says to activate this unwinding with my Higher Self’s connection to my “I AM” power in my 11th House of my Future hopes and dreams. Here in my 11th House, I can transform by connecting with my Soul tribes to ask for support to liberate my true power by coming into the higher mindsets of my circles. Whoohoo! I am excited to experience this week!
**Get out your Natal chart and do this exercise with me! We are doing this together with my guidance and support in the Lunar Ladies Club. Join my Lunar Tribe to empower yourself, your future and your hopes and dreams!
3rd Quarter Take-Away:
As you wind down and slow down, you will extract meaning from your many different experiences from this week of “Letting Go”. All these sources are synthesizing together to create an inner assurance that is joyful, nurturing, and made just for you. This inner assurance is protecting you, especially as an Empath, from outside hostile forces of life. When you learn and practice the Art of Letting Go, your need to depend on anything outside yourself diminishes. What replaces it, is a deep nourishment that protects you even in the midst of the most non-life-supporting environments. Seek your true and trusted “supernal-light-infused” companion friends and let them support you as you unwind the past to expand into your future! YES!
Utilize the imagery for this week as a visualization meditation. As you practice mindfulness to calm your emotional body, you will calm your mind (like the Moonlight lake).
Still waters run deep, right?!
Be in alignment with this week’s energy that is winding down. As you do, you prepare yourself for next week’s New Moon Solar Eclipse and Lunar New Year in Aquarius! Tune in and ask if it is time for you to dive deeper into your astrological blueprint. If so, make the decision to get a Lunar Ladies Club membership so that you have the foundational structure and support system to empower yourself for the most dynamic and liberating 2019!
