The 3rd Quarter Moon at 18 degrees Scorpio happens on February 7, 2018 at 7:53 AM PST/10:53 AM EST and begins a week of Release. This is the reflective shadow of the Super Full Moon lunar eclipse a week ago.
3rd Quarter Energetics: The Third Quarter Moon is created when the Sun and Moon make a 270 degree square in the Zodiac or 90 degree square to one another. As the Moon wanes, She loses emotional power and pushes your emotional Self inward. The Sun gains strength and helps the Moon’s lunar power to push you towards looking into your own mirror.
The 3rd Quarter Scorpio “Madwoman’s Moon” is created by a waning square with the Aquarius Sun. Here the Feminine can be frustrated by the aloof nature of the Masculine to not see the depths of what is happening to the future. Rome is burning and no one is noticing. This can make the Feminine a little nuts because she feels the depths of the motivations of that non-conforming, rebellious and erratic behavior of the masculine out of balance. She screams, “STOP what you are doing!” but no one is in their bodies to hear Her cry.
Fear not, there is hope when you turn your attention inward and connect to the sacred story of the Sabian Symbols for this week’s alignment. When you align with the messages, you rise above the unconscious control patterns and turn up the higher frequency volume to help yourself and Humanity rise up.
Sacred Sabian Symbol Story: Moon and Sun
Madwoman’s Moon at 18 degrees Scorpio: A PARROT REPEATS THE CONVERSATION HE HAS OVERHEARD.” KEYNOTE: The capacity to transmit transcendental knowledge. Keyword: CHANNELSHIP. When you walk your talk by living devoted to your faith, it’s possible to become a channel of Wisdom. This transmission of information can transcends the mundane, ordinary mindset. This image shows when the mind becomes silent and attentive, you become attuned to the rhythm of the Universe transmitting superhuman realizations. Discrimination balances the over-eagerness of faith. Attune yourself to sources of higher wisdom to channel your “higher Voice.” Birds symbolize spiritual forces as Messengers.
Sun at 18 degrees Aquarius: “A FOREST FIRE IS BEING SUBDUED BY THE USE OF WATER, CHEMICALS AND SHEER MUSCULAR ENERGY.” KEYNOTE: The skill and courage necessary to bring under control the destructive potential of carelessness of karmic “visitations.” KEYWORD: INDOMITABILITY. Forest fires happen through human carelessness, lightning or effects of technology. Fire represents direction and reactions. These moments are symbolizing tests of strength, ingenuity or your emotional stability. Review your current state of emotional, mental, physical states of Being. Where is your faith in a Higher Source? Do you want to be in alignment with your Higher Source or separated? One leads to power and one leads to destruction. The Sun’s Aquarian message is for a total mobilization of energy and a deep sense of your personal strength.
Ancient Allies: Here we Come to Save the Day!
Pluto, ruler of Scorpio, sextiles the Moon lending Capricorn energy at 20 degrees (3rd decan with a twist Virgo) ~ “A RELAY RACE.” KEYNOTE: The value of competition in developing group-consciousness. Verte in Virgo also strengthens with the Medicine of Truth ~ “A SWIMMING RACE.” KEYNOTE: The stimulation that comes from a group effort toward a spiritual goal. Love the energy of racing! It draws forth as your support system the energy dynamics of team work and that it takes a group effort to achieve success now.
Aquarius Sun is with the South and North Node axis. The South Node at 14 degrees Aquarius is ~ “TWO LOVEBIRDS SITTING ON A FENCE AND SINGING HAPPILY.” KEYNOTE: The blessing bestowed upon personal achievements by the spiritually fulfilled consciousness of the Soul. Unwinding this bound Collective energy pattern will offer you gifts from a past life. As the energy unwinds it transforms in the North Node at 14 degrees Leo ~ “A PAGEANT, WITH ITS SPECTACULAR FLOATS, MOVES ALONG A STREET CROWDED WITH CHEERING PEOPLE.” KEYNOTE: The more or less sensational release of energies in a form dramatizing the unconscious aspirations of man’s primitive and instinctual nature. That sounds pretty awesome doesn’t it?
Uranus sextiles the Sun lending harmonic music to the Sun’s influence for you. Uranus in Aries (25 degrees) is ~ “A MAN POSSESSED OF MORE GIFTS THAN HE CAN HOLD.” KEYNOTE: Obsession by potentiality. As you attune to this image, your Uranus individualized forcefield energizes Venus in Aquarius ~ “A GARAGE MAN TESTING A CAR’S BATTERY WITH A HYDROMETER.” KEYNOTE: Skill in applying knowledge of natural laws to the solution of everyday problems resulting from life in our technological society. This passionate Higher Mind energy shifts the Sun’s focus to the bold, unique eccentricities to liberate the Feminine. Let that one take you for a ride!
