The Moon enters Capricorn. Cold and practical Capricorn can potentially block us emotionally, but since the Moon also trine Uranus, we can thankfully take advantage of a different opportunity that the cosmos presents.
Today, our past can be well integrated with our desires for the future! We can gain an emotional maturity that will allow us to examine our past and learn the lessons that will lead us toward making smarter decisions in the present.
Seeking out wisdom today is the key that will drive you towards a brighter tomorrow.
Scorpio is the month of intense energy! Have you noticed that yet? Probably so. If we feel something these days, we feel it all the way. If we are confused about something these days, we want to dig deep and discover the truth! Today, is the absolute peak of this energy with Mercury conjunct Venus in Scorpio. The universe is challenging us with a whole new level of intensity that can ignite a desire to dig deep – especially in the areas of close relationships and financial matters.
The danger is in being obsessive, harsh or secretive. If we feel the need to dig and discover the truth, remember to do it with human dignity, patience and humility. In your search for truth, remember it is more important to be kind than it is to be right.
The energy today can assist us in acquiring a profound sense of determination in our spiritual work. With 3 planets in Capricorn, we can connect to the power of spiritual perseverance and strength. We have: The moon, which represents our emotional system, Pluto, the planet of transformation, and Saturn, the planet that is not afraid of hard work. This is a winning combination to provide us the needed fortitude to endure and not give up on our spiritual journey.
The challenge of this combination is in stopping and paying attention to people around us. No matter how determined we are on the direction that we should take, it is still important that we be aware of those around us. We don’t want to hurt anyone else on our own individual journey.
With the assistance of the cosmos, today can serve as a powerful reminder to never give up on your spirit, and never give up on yourself.
No more denial and illusion! Neptune is in retrograde for a while and allows us to examine any area of our lives that is less than pleasant. With the strength of the sign of Scorpio and its ability to go within, this is a tremendous opportunity to take a deeper look at all the things in our lives that we are in denial of or have been avoiding for a long time.
Take a look today at any financial issues, unwanted relationships, or other red flags. Reevaluate your reality and use that Scorpio strength to deal with and change any harmful and unwanted situations in your life.
Loving yourself is having the strength to walk away from that which no longer serves you.
Yesterday, we mentioned the power of the planet Neptune. Today with the beautiful aspect between Mercury (the planet of communication) and Neptune we have an ability to reach into our intuitive side and apply it to our communication with others.
This aspect can also bring a lot of inspiration into our life or help us become more inspiring in the way we speak to each other. If you have anything you need to communicate or write (a sales pitch, letter, song, article), today is a great day to do it.
Don’t let yourself get confused! The potential inspiration we described yesterday still exists in the universe today, but at the same time Mercury, the planet of communication, is creating a challenging aspect with Mars, the planets of wars. This energy might confuse us, activating two conflicting forces at the same time, pulling us towards arguments and impulsiveness in our interactions with others.
Remember how our mothers used to tell us, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!” It would be best to heed her advice today.

The Month of Scorpio together with the energy of retrograde Uranus can allow us a great deal of introspection. The more we understand our spiritual process (tikkune), the better clarity we have on the type of work that has to be done.
Today, take a look at any sudden changes, losses, or unpredictable shifts your life took in the last year. Try to understand how those were times of growth. What did you learn from these moments? How should it encourage you to behave differently moving forward?
The ‘down’ moments in life are not meant to make us feel bad about ourselves, but to teach us the lessons we came here to learn so that we may create for ourselves a better future.
