The Cancer moon shares some frustrations in the sky while forming a square with Jupiter today. When it comes to matters of the heart, this energy could throw you for a serious loop. Try to maintain your patience, understanding and diplomacy should any conflict arise in your love life. Emotions are likely to run high, and Cancer lunar energy is extremely emotional, so things could get ugly quickly. The energy here could amplify issues that might not ordinarily be such a big deal, so try to be mindful of that and keep things in perspective.

Unfortunately, the atmosphere doesn’t lighten up much as the evening progresses. The moon continues to encounter frustration as it forms a square to Chiron. With all of this going on in the cosmos, you’ll want to be on the lookout for manipulative behavior. People might begin to obsess over the ways in which they feel they’ve been wronged, and you definitely don’t want to be in the crossfire when they lash out. If the tension becomes too difficult to manage, you might want to postpone any personal interactions until things cool down.

On the plus side, Chiron sends some helpful energy to the moon, so if you’re able to keep calm and talk through your issues, you’re likely to evolve and strengthen your relationships tonight.

Sun moves into detail-oriented Virgo late today.

Our focus shifts to the pieces of the puzzle–the little details of our lives. It is now time to take care of practical concerns. Attending to the details of everyday life may not sound like loads of fun, but it can certainly free us from unnecessary stress that results from collecting odds and ends of unfinished business.

This is an ideal time to get organized, to do detail work, and to improve communications on the job. We take more pride in our work, chores, and health efforts. We also want to be more organized and informed during the Sun-in-Virgo cycle.

We’re learning humility and the benefits of developing skills, some level of perfectionism, and the importance of attention to detail. It’s a time of down-to-earth practicality, when we prefer to invest our time and energy in things with realistic potential. We’re not inclined to ambition or going big. Attracting prosperity involves honest, careful, and attentive work and dedication.

DAILY ORACLE

52 | Scarab Beetle Spirit | Magic works through you.

Do you doubt your unique inner magic? Are you afraid that you have no originality or that creative juices don’t flow through you? Perhaps you mistakenly believe you’re not “the creative manifesting type.”

Scarab Beetle Spirit’s message is that creativity is a living force that comes to all of us from Spirit, who wants every person on the planet to manifest magic and co-create the world anew. You are as capable of resilience and innovation as anyone.

If you do what you’ve always done, you’re going to get what you’ve always got, so draw inspiration into your being and begin to playfully create something new— and do it without any judgment.

Creativity and magic are your legacy as an expression of the Creator, so let them flow through you.


2022 LUNAR CALENDAR

AUGUST 27: NEW MOON IN VIRGO: Your feeling of safety is now related to order and clarity, even in emotions. You may have the need to organise everything chaotic and disorganized. Try being more tolerant and accept imperfections of life. It is better to trust life and let it run its own way, not everything must be according to our expectations.


9/3/2022, FIRST QUARTER MOON IN SAGITTARIUS: The greatest need is to always search for something. In order to feel safe you might find that you need to have a goal, mission or philosophy that gives your life meaning. With Moon in Sagittarius you have an optimistic approach to life and you believe that things will get better even if you get into trouble.

9/10/2022, FULL MOON IN PISCES (HARVEST MOON): Moon in Pisces has the greatest sensitivity and perceptiveness of surroundings. You can experience feelings of insecurity, be passive and only wait and see what happens in your life. If you engage in creative or spiritual search, you will benefit from great imagination of Pisces.

9/17/2022, LAST QUARTER MOON IN GEMINI/CANCER: Moon in Gemini manifests itself by the need for changes and spontaneity. Safety lies in thinking about your feelings and sharing them with others. You can be more talkative and speak with ease these days. You might have a better ability to keep a cool head, but beware, cold heart can discourage others. Harmony of thinking and feeling is important.

Moon in Cancer brings your feeling of safety related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.

9/25/2022, NEW MOON IN VIRGO: You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things nice rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.
