The moon spends the day in Scorpio. The moon is considered “in detriment” in the sign of Scorpio, and what this means is that our sweet, emotional moon does not feel comfortable with the deep intensity of Scorpio, This is a subtle feeling, this discomfort, but it is there. I often find people born with the moon in Scorpio have a very hard time with their willpower … their strong desires seem to rule them on some level. So often under the transit moon in Scorpio we can feel our desires more strongly than at other times.
The moon makes a trine to Neptune which is exact at 5:56 AM eastern time. Moon-Neptune is great for sleeping and dreaming. It is great for spiritual work such as meditation and prayer.
The sun and moon make a sextile which peaks at 6:43 PM. This is a subtly harmonious aspect and we should have a general good mood as a result.
A sextile aspect between the moon and Pluto is exact at 8:59 PM. This is another subtly harmonious aspect but it does tend to bring up deeper emotions as well. It does add to an overall good day!
A stone I would suggest working with today is amber which helps the body to heal with it's sunny, bright energy.
An essential oil to try today is sweet orange with also has that sunny, bright energy that helps us feel more optimistic. Sometimes under the Scorpio moon we do need to deliberately engage optimism as the tendency here is to look at the darker side of things.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
