February 14, 2023 Edition
Good afternoon, and welcome to the February 14, 2023 edition of Moon Scope!
Last night, or earlier this morning I should say, I found myself in a dark location, which is excellent for viewing the sky, and because it was unusually warm, I decided to stand outside, light some inscence, and do just that.
It was a cloudless sky, and I was able to see Orion descend below the horizon as the waning crescent moon made its way across the sky overhead.
It was 1:30 a.m., and thoughts pertaining to some really specific issues flooded my mind. When matters are left unresolved, the universe has an interesting way of reminding us, and it will.
So, earlier this morning at 1:30, the moon was in the 12th House in Sagittarius ♐️. This is a sign/house position I find particularly interesting because this is where Sagittarius was when the Declaration of Independence was signed.
🌘The moon itself represents so many things in astrology, but when it comes to the mind, it represents the sub-conscious mind. The mind in its totality was compared to an iceberg. The small tip sticking out above the water is said to be the awakened-everyday mind represented by Mercury, and the larger section below the surface is the sub-conscious mind represented by the moon.
Last night, the Moon was a waning crescent, which means the current moon cycle is coming to an end. If there are issues left unresolved, things you’ve been putting off, or things you would like to do, it wouldn’t be weird if emotions were stirred up at this time connected to those things. The current alignment is waking you up; a new moon cycle is approaching soon. The opportunity to take care of business is coming up, so get ready.
♐Sagittarius is a masculine fire sign, and its quality is mutable. I always said Sagittarius was one of the best fire signs because the fire is mutable. This means the emotional energy isn’t so overwhelming or so extreme that it burns you up. It burns, but it motivates you. It’s likely that whatever is on your mind or coming to the surface right now, is close to heart. These are matters and issues you care about.
Just because you’ve been ignoring them, or putting them off that doesn’t mean you don’t care. You’ve just chosen to be mature about things and move forward in a controlled and dignified way.
The 12th House is known as the house of secrets. It’s not supposed to be a place of negativity, although most people see it that way because the 12th House governs the limitations life places on us. In the 12th House, we find unseen forces, secret enemies, accidents, and self-defeat. Asylums, hospitals, and rehabilitation centers are found here.
The Law of Return is alive and well here (Karma), so this where we find the rewards or punishments for the deeds we’ve done.
Tonight and tomorrow night the Moon will be in Sagittarius. You can make this a fun time involving the creative fire. Sagittarius is the sign of the explorer. It’s freedom-loving and adventurous. Now’s the time to think outside the box. The moon in this position is drumming up those 12th House psychic powers giving you insight and a behind-the-scenes peak at who or what’s impeding your progress.
Get creative. Sagittarius is the sign of the higher mind, so don’t go to war when it’s not necessary. Do some research, set some time aside for quiet study or contemplation, or plan a trip to place you’ve never been before. When you return, you’ll return with the secret plan for victory!
