Today is a day of intense alertness, as long as you are delving into personal space endeavors. Scorpio lends a fiery bite to our lives today, in the realms of mysticism and deep inner thinking. An odd occurrence of this particular Moon-Scorpio transit is that those who had been keeping to themselves only days prior have no become more open, and secrecy is at a low for this particular point in the transition through Scorpio. Expect to have epiphanies early today and into the afternoon, if you did not have one yesterday. This is also a great day to perform and practice any divination.
As always, this article is written using Astronomical Astrology, meaning that all information and celestial positioning are taken from real-life, real-time observation of the current night sky. I always encourage everyone to take a step out into nature; it's your nature, your sky, and your well of knowledge! Immerse yourself in it! You might just be surprised.

- Moon in Scorpio - Pulling energies from both Mars and Pluto, the sign of Scorpio has a fiery, strong, mysterious energy about it, as we travel through; though as we continue involving Ophiuchus to our zodiac, we can be fairly sure that this period would count as a shared sign period, as both occupy the space along this transit. Pluto would rule over Scorpio, while the Mars factor would radiate from Ophiuchus, the snake-bearer. From Scorpio, we can expect intuitive, internal thinking, whether this be to sort out deep solutions or decisions. Many people feel a draw to be more secretive during this time, and until 8:23 yesterday, when the moon ventured into Ophiuchus' realm, many people tended to keep to themselves. This does not change much today, unless the fire of their decision needs to be discussed. Today is an excellent day to work on divination, asking the divine for answers or signs, thinking about serious decisions, philosophical thinking, and psychological thinking. As part of the waning moon cycle, use this time to break harmful secrets or rumors, remove sexual blockages, and remove psychic blockages. Avoid surgery on sexual organs, excretory system, endocrine glands, large intestine, kidneys, and urinary tracts.
- Moon in Ophiuchus - This article observes Ophiuchus as having always attributed energies to the major zodiac sign of Scorpio; however, for the sake of this article, the traits will be touched upon. Until the moon reaches the actual foot of Ophiuchus, we strongly feel the traits of Scorpio and Pluto's influence alone. When the moon enters Ophiuchus, we are gifted with a bit of passion and drive sent by Mars. That, we believe, is what fuels our upset and sharp bite when we are disturbed from our internal musings. You will often find that Scorpio is listed as ruled by both Pluto and Mars, but this is due to not taking the extra energies into consideration. Power, assertion over others, strength, charm, and dominance are the words of Ophiuchus.
- Waning Crescent - The light has almost left the moon's face completely, so give yourself a pat on the back for making it this far! Whether you have been diligently working with the moon's symbolism and power to remove harmful things from your life, or you have simply just made it though the last month, this is a feat and all feats should be celebrated! Continue your waning working, and prepare for the New Moon!
- Tuesday - Ruled by Mars, we can see as spike in energy and motivation today, granted to us from both, Tuesday and Ophiuchus. Use today to remove blockages from energy, drive, passion, and romance, as well as removing conflict from your life!
- Numerology: 4 - The number for is synchronic with stability. You should feel more grounded today, which is attributing to today's sense of alertness. Like the four legs that keep a table stable, this energy does wonders for keeping us in touch with our surroundings.
- Suggested Prayer/Spell work - Removal of energy, sexual, psychic, conflict, passion, and knowledge blockages, removal of secrets and rumors, removal of dominance, and removal of the wool from our eyes as we work on increasing our abilities to see answers from the divine.
