Being in Scorpio, the Quarter Moon on the 18th brings Jupiter, planet of optimism and generosity, into focus. Having been in Scorpio since October last year, Jupiter is now in its last three months there so seize the day! Jupiter won’t be back in this deep soul intimacy energy zone for another 12 years, and right now Jupiter helps bring positive awareness to love situations and their complexities.
Sometimes generosity can be a form of poverty if there are negative strings attached. From the 18th (Qtr Moon in Scorpio) to the 26th (Full Moon), it’s easier for us all to see hidden ways we might be bound in any hard-to-escape arrangements that leave us feeling depleted or somehow less of ourselves. A situation might seem generous or worth it in the long-term, but check if it really is or if the costs are too great to your freedom, identity or wellbeing. The week of this Quarter Moon in Scorpio helps with addressing unconscious, subconscious or heart and soul layers, not only in romantic love but also in business, family or other bonds.
There might be conflict, but the clarity of honest intimacy can unstick cloggy binds and allow truth and respect to win the day. The Quarter Moon sits above Jupiter on the 18th; then on the 21st the Gibbous (hunchback) Moon is near Saturn; and on the 23rd, the almost-Full Moon is near brilliant red Mars. Yet Venus, planet of love and money, is the brightest of all showing the radiant wellbeing possible when relationships have healthy transparent arrangements; not hidden secrets, agendas or control.
