Scorpio Waning Moon

The waning moon in Scorpio invites you to release resistance to commitments and financial obligations. The tools of the time are intuition and spirituality.

Scorpio Waning Moon Transformation and Obligations

The moon is waning in Scorpio and stands in the center of light and dark. It asks us to pause, reflect, and assess. Scorpio is the sign of sex, death and rebirth. There is a strong ability to focus intensely on what stirs within. This brings about change, self-discipline, deep emotional connections, financial partnerships, and or power. There is a need for deep involvements and intense transformation.

Pluto rules Scorpio, representing our capacity to transform and renew ourselves in an emotional and spiritual rebirth. Together Scorpio and Pluto can influence us to investigate what is really going on within and around us.

Scorpio Moon Transit

When the moon is in Scorpio the mood is serious and curious. We are influenced to investigate the heart of the matter. We respect the personal space and boundaries of others. We make a choice to be productive or unproductive. We can obsess about our to do list or our hindering narratives. It is a good time to explore metaphysical ideas. Practice reading tarot and astrology charts. Make time to meditate.

Scorpio Waning Moon

We are in the last phase of the Capricorn moonth. The waning moon in Scorpio invites you to release resistance to financial obligations. It also encourages rebirth and mental health.

I pulled the Star for this particular moon phase (Capricorn New Moon tarot Spread card 4). My first impression of the card was "I release being afraid my dreams are too big". That surprised me, but there was truth to it. Now I look at the card and realize my dreams aren't big enough. The Scorpio vibe helps me to understand that fear is something to be transformed. I view fear as an alert to review and focus on what and why I'm afraid. I evaluate if the fear is helping or hindering me. In this particular case it is hindering so I take a deep breath and decide that my dreams are not big enough. I'm curious to see how this plays out in the Aquarius moonth coming up next week. This is especially intriguing because The Star represents Aquarius in Tarot.

The image XIII Death is from The Dark Goddess Tarot by Ellen Lorenzi Prince. La Santa Muerte, the Mexican Goddess of Death says "Death is the destiny of life". She also asks for you to see the truth of the habits that get in the way of building a better life for yourself.

Judgement represents Pluto the planetary ruler of Scorpio in tarot

Pluto the planet of transformation, death, and destruction teaches that endings are part of the cycle of rebirth and resurrection. Judgement is a call for decision making, compelling us to release what no longer fits.

The image is XX Liberation (Judgement) from The Dark Goddess Tarot. Persephone, Greek Goddess of Resurrection who says "the past is not forgotten, yet life begins anew." She reminds us that there are two worlds. The spiritual and the mundane, the real world and the other world. We walk them both so give each their due.

The King of Cups

The King of Cups represents Fixed Water in Tarot as is the modality and element of Scorpio

Fixed Water is the embodiment of Scorpio. In tarot it shows up as being perceptive and analytical, smart and sensuous, while craving deep connection on an intellectual and emotional level. There is an understanding of the ebb and flow of time and cycles of transformation and rebirth.

The image is Hag of Water from The Dark Goddess Tarot. Ran is the Norse Goddess of the Drowned. She says "Surrender to the sea to find her secret places." She reminds us that deep in your soul, you know where you belong, and where you do not. If you do not act on this knowledge, do not expect relief from your difficulties.

Reflect and Assess

Consider what can released to make room for transformation and the upcoming Aquarius New Moon. Take a look at your notes and or intentions from the Capricorn New Moon. How are you intentions coming along? Are you on track? Do you still want the things you wished for? Ask yourself:

What do I release as the moon wanes in Scorpio?
