Astrology of the Day – Moon in Scorpio - Wednesday 7th March 2018

Calm in the eye of the storm

The Moon is in Scorpio through most of the day, and the energy brings a need for us to know exactly what is going on. The Moon in this sign is reclusive, secretive, guarded with with what it allows us to reveal, and yet it asks us to find out as much as we can about the motivations, movements and plans of others. You see, the Moon here wants us to be informed, as forewarned is forearmed, and if we know what's coming, then we can them protect ourselves from what is coming. That's the ultimate goal here, the need to survive.

The intensity level is high anyway through the Moon being in Scorpio, but it will be raised a level as it forms a sextile the the ruler of the sign of Scorpio, Pluto. This sextile actually will keep us calm, and we will be able to work well in a pressurised situation, keeping our calm even if hell is breaking loose all around us. We will feel a need to be close to others and sense an intimate bond, be it physical or mental.

The Moon then moves forwards to form a conjunction to Jupiter. This connection will lift our spirits and bring a smile not only to our faces but to others too. Through it we will feel an emotional drive to do something expansive, ambitious or to improve our knowledge in some way. We will also be open to learn something new, and go somewhere different and fly away. Being generous in praise and in a more material way will be second nature to us now, and we will be willing to help out should our assistance be needed.

There is a little disruption that we may encounter later in the day as the Moon forms as rather irritating inconjunct aspect to Uranus, and something that we were not expecting may get in the way, cause a breakage or force us to do something that we were counting on doing. Someone's intransigence or stubborn behaviour might be getting on our nerves, and upsetting us emotionally. Luckily this is followed by a trine to Chiron, and either we may realise the error of our ways, or we may get an apology from someone who realised that their actions was causing us trouble. There is a chance to kiss and make up, and if offered we should be in a position to accept.

The Moon's last act today is to move into Sagittarius, and the freedom and progressive energy we felt through the Jupiter conjunction will revisit us for the next couple of days. The energy now will be expansive, optimistic, candid and fun and there will be a need to learn, to explore and to push ourselves to the very limit.
