“To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

The Moon’s arrival in Scorpio this morning sets up tomorrow’s Scorpio Full Moon (3:45 AM PDT 17° Scorpio/Taurus), which brings a culmination of the shifts in leadership that were initiated under last month’s Taurus New Moon. This lunar cycle has been pointing us towards new leadership principles and structures. Under today’s Moon-Uranus opposition, we may not feel the warm, steady comfort of strong leadership but we do begin to sense a dawning awareness that new directions are important and we may need new leaders to lead us in those new directions. Even so, today’s unsteadiness and spontaneity are most likely to feel out of control but today’s chaos actually sets the stage for more clarity and specificity under tomorrow’s Full Moon.

The Scorpio moon squares Saturn in Aquarius this morning, and you’re reaching a turning point. You’re reflecting on boundaries and letting go of heavier emotions. The moon opposes Uranus in Taurus around midday, bringing sudden revelations and changes.

Scorpio is a fixed water sign that represents change and a process of metamorphosis. The moon is said to be in its fall here, where it is harder to let go of attachments to both pleasure and pain. But it is the fear of the unknown that keeps us clinging to the devil we know.

You’re nearing the end of a cycle, but every end is a new beginning, and with Scorpio, the only way out is through. Remain detached and it will be easier to move through a transition.
