Tonight, the moon travels through the first half of Scorpio, granting us a quicker tongue and keener sight, but be careful; it becomes very easy to say something without thinking during this time. Manipulative behavior, as well as the feeling of being manipulated is strong at this time; be weary of that as well. Do not succumb to petty manipulation bouts. If you feel you're being manipulated during this time, steer clear of the situation until the Scorpio Moon is over.
This article, and all Tonight's Moon Phase articles, is written using Astronomical Astrology. This means that the positions of the celestial bodies are taken from real-time by looking up at the sky! I encourage everyone to take a step outside and immerse themselves in what they're really living! If you cannot see the sky, use a reputable source like NASA. All times based in Hattiesburg, MS - CST.
Tonight's Moon Phase - 13% Waning Crescent

- Moon in Scorpio - In this fixed water sign ruled by both Pluto and Mars, the moon's positioning persuades us to have strength where we might not have had it before, in our words. The phrase, "She has a tongue like a scorpion"comes to mind in this sign, as words and wit come quick in our defense. Due to this, be weary of what you're saying, and try to think before you say it. Avoid confrontation until later in this sign or until after this phase passes. On the plus side, use this time to utilize and harness your quick thinking; find what you like about the scorpio moon and try to incorporate those traits into your normal life. For instance, I've always wanted to come up with quick, funny comebacks, like my friends, so I'll be remembering what it feels like from this moon forward! Use today to work on that, as well as taxes, accounting, intimacy problems, mental incapacities, self-examination, and getting rid of old things.
- Waning Crescent Moon - As the lighted moon is coming to an end, so should your burdens! For those who have performed their waning moon rituals and prayers, congratulations! You're almost done with the hardest part of the moon cycle! Do not be discouraged if you did not complete your goal overall because any step is a step closer! Prepare for your New Moon rituals at this time.
- Tuesday - Ruled by Mars, we see another hit of strength today. Mars is notoriously the planet of war and power, so expect these influences today! For daily workings, focus on repairing passion, creativity, strength, and leadership!
- Numerology: 6 - Today is about love, harmony, self-image, fitness, family, and worldly care, use these energies to balance out the influences of Scorpio! Be on the lookout for stress and remember that today is especially hard on that!
- Suggested Prayer/Spell work - Removing intimacy problems, clearing and balancing your accounts, getting rid of old things.
