Today we have a very favourable aspect for anything to do with communications, deals, purchases and networking as the Sun merges with Mercury. So send that message, sign that contract and make that purchase today as the sky promises a smooth going!
The biggest day of the week is Thursday as we have a full moon in Scorpio. Scorpio is a deep, deep, deeeeeeeep sign and it deals with deep (did I say this?) transformation as it is the most intense of signs (feminine, fixed, water). Scorpio will love you deeply forever and become obsessed when out of balance. This is why Scorpio is linked with addictions, jealousy, relentlessness… everything goes deep and is felt to the extreme. So, even though full moons are felt as high energy, offering revelations and clarity; this full moon may feel more introverted, asking us to dive deep into the abyss of our psyche to dig for the roots of our most hidden fears… Sounds fun? I guess it depends on how daring you feel this week. Lets prepare for this, do a little ground work first so we are connected to our cores before we do such intense work. Stay tuned as I will be posting a little ritual for Thursday’s full moon on Wednesday. Follow my blog so you don’t miss a post – I only write once or twice a week, so it won’t clog your inbox!
The moon just went through her first quarter phase into waxing gibbous and will keep swelling up as we advance through the week, culminating in a super powerful full moon in Scorpio on Saturday.
A little bit of lunar wisdom:
You might have heard this is also a blue moon. ‘Another blue moon? Didn’t it happen last month? How is this possible?’ I hear you say. A blue moon is essentially an extra full moon in a year, when there are 13 instead of 12. Now, which one is the actual blue moon then? The original definition of the blue moon is the seasonal one and it traces back to the August 1937 issue of the Maine Farmer’s Almanac, where it explains that “the moon usually comes full 12 times in a year, three times for each season. Occasionally, however, there will come a year when there are 13 full moons during a year, not the usual 12. And that extra full moon also meant that one of the four seasons would contain four full moons instead of the usual three.”
The almanac followed certain rules for what to call each moon. For example, the last full moon of winter had to fall during Lent; it was called the Lenten Moon. The first full moon of spring was called the Egg Moon — or Easter Moon, or Paschal Moon — and had to fall within the week before Easter. There was also the Moon Before Yule and the Moon After Yule. So when a particular season had four moons, the third was dubbed a Blue Moon, so that the other full moons could occur at the proper times relative to the solstices and equinoxes.
Somehow this definition got misinterpreted along the way circa 1946 and this adoption of the definition of a “bluemoon” as the second full moon in a month followed its use on the popular radio program StarDate on January 31, 1980.
I will be holding a full moon meditation and ritual this Friday 17th at the Whittington Cafe, 9-10pm

This week starts with a Grand Trine on the Earth element as the Sun is in taurus, Pluto retrogrades in Capricorn and the Moon is in Virgo. This may bring that power, focus and determination needed to finally make that change in an old pattern system which no longer serves us. As human beings we want to belong, but now is the time to find out who we really are. There’ll be hurdles and tests along the way. The question to ask in these moments is: ‘Do I want authenticity or belonging?‘ Your soul knows the answer! This Trine will support us with the energy to go forward and get through these changes so we come through to the other side the most honest and true we’ve ever been. Remember that ‘there is no change without discomfort’. This is only temporary, but necessary for us to evolve. The full moon in Scorpio towards the end of the week will be emotionally deep… It’s an all or nothing moon, yes or no, there is no space for half ways… This is a great time to deal with stopping addictions and fully supports the Grand Trine at the beginning of the week. Don’t think about it and dive in!
