The waning Moon sits in between the Goddess Lilith and Pluto and the Sun is working with Mercury retrograde. This is a powerful time to release and surrender to your Inner Worth and Feminine Truth. Oooo Wise Woman! Read on to see how to do that!
3rd Quarter Moon Energetics:
With the Moon losing light and energy, the tension that results can help you find significance and deeper meaning for your experience living with the Moon. The energetic state of the Third Quarter Moon is “Reflection” and now is the time to begin to go inward and discover what the Moon has shown you. The search for meaning happens here and this is to help sustain your intentions and goals moving forward.
The 3rd Quarter Moon in Capricorn is called the “Miser’s Moon”. Here the waning Moon needs to count her blessings. Acknowledge all your hard work this week and appreciate how much effort you put into improving yourself. Inquire within, “Who makes up my support circle?”. Rediscover your inner authority and become the “Author” of your own life. Respect yourself, your journey and the legacy you, as Soul, have come to leave behind. Reflect upon the impact you are making in the world and surrender to an even bigger version of you.
This lunar week wants you to surrender and take responsibility for your Soul’s growth, your Soul’s worth and your Soul’s yearning to help others. The time is now where you are needed to help sleeping souls heal as they awaken. Awakening is coming whether you are ready or not. Many do not have the tools to bridge the gap between the 3rd and 5th Dimension. The transformations that are in motion can appear frightening as the 3D illusions disperse. Be available to comfort and build community by knowing your Soul’s worth and what you have come to Earth to do!
Sabian Symbol Story:
Moon at 18 degrees Capricorn: “A CHILD OF ABOUT FIVE CARRYING A HUGE SHOPPING BAG FILLED WITH GROCERIES”. This image asks where do you carry heavy loads, shoulder responsibilities, and help others when there’s no one else who will do it. Do you feel burdened by seeing your life as a chore? The “Inner Child” takes on these responsibilities because they will take it seriously, complete the task, and take care of the details. Be careful not take on too much, or do too much. Be like a child and play, create and nap.
Add Lilith at 16 degrees to the Left: “A YOUNG PERSON SURREPTITIOUSLY BATHING IN THE NUDE”. Lilith our Feminine Wild Side, is freeing Herself from restraints of social programming. Now is the time to not be ashamed of desiring to be free. Let go of worry and be free to show your spiritual and emotional side. Add Pluto at 21 degrees to the Right: “A GENERAL ACCEPTING DEFEAT GRACEFULLY”. Pluto is the Great Transformer to dismantle the old and rebirth the new. This is the time to be able to “Accept” those things not working out and let go of what no longer serves you. There is true valor in surrender and now is the time align with your true inner worth. Be the GoddessBOSS you are born to be!
Sun at 18 degrees Aries: “A MAGIC CARPET HOVERS OVER THE DEPRESSING REALITY OF EVERYDAY LIFE”. Use your imagination to lift you up into higher realms. Elevation above the everyday or mundane world transcends limitations and struggles. The Aries Sun energy is here to lift you up from negativity. As you allow this process to happen, you can experience the calmer, more creative, spiritual side to your life. Expanded awareness and an elevated perspective reveals greater truths.
Mercury Retrograde is your Ally as He influences the Sun’s journey this week. At 6 degrees Aries, Mercury brings this message of “A PERSON SUCCESSFULLY EXPRESSING THEMSELVES IN TWO REALMS AT ONCE”. This is learning how to be in the world but not of the world. You can be successful in both the material and spiritual worlds. Reflect upon how your life may feel separated or divided. Give value to what you see in your internal mirror. It has has importance to your Soul’s expansion.
ONE MORE THING! A Finger of the Gods points to the North Node in Leo from Neptune (15 degrees) Pisces and Mars (12 degrees) Capricorn. The North Node at 12 degrees Leo carries this message: “AN OLD SEA CAPTAIN ROCKING ON THE PORCH OF HIS COTTAGE”. Tune into the Old Sea Captain and take time for quiet reflection. Look back at past experiences, especially those times that were threatening or exhausting in some way. Set aside time for solitude and contemplate the overall picture and meaning of your life as it is now.
The Takeaway: Tune into the Harmony
Saturn in Capricorn trine Venus in Taurus at 9 degrees. Saturn’s message is about overcoming fears, superstitions or limiting thoughts. Triumph over fear through gentleness and a readiness to let down your guard. Interact with others (animals, too) without feeling afraid to be vulnerable. Venus’ message harmonizes your heart by caring, having empathy and helping others to find comfort in the healing powers of Love.
Jupiter Retrograde (21 degrees) Scorpio trines Juno at 20 degrees Pisces. Jupiter’s message brings the need to be a Protector for those innocent, younger, smaller, or not able to protect themselves. Be a powerful advocate for others to protect them from the more harmful elements of society. Juno, Goddess of Union, shares this power by providing care, safety and comfort to those who need it. The Goddesses have your back this week!
