The Futuristic Inventor + The Mystical Alchemist

Embrace the Aquarius + Scorpio Magic

At first glance, I honestly I can’t think of two more polarizing energies (at least not in the moment).

Today, the 4h quarter phase of the moon (the last phase before the New Moon in about a week) is in Scorpio.

At the same time, we have the Sun just having moved into the sign of Aquarius.

Think about that. Scorpio, whose symbol is the Scorpion, in its hard-shell exterior, very much inclined to focus inward, deep in feelings and thought. It’s a sensitive sign, and it needs a shell to protect it from what can feel like (to it anyway), a bombardment of feelings and emotions coming at it *all the time*.

On the other hand, Aquarius, the forward-thinking, more emotionally detached, more outward focused, and very focused on the collective, i.e. what’s fair and equal for all of society.

On the Astrological wheel, these two are in square to one another, which creates a tension.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing either. In fact, in this case you can envision this play of energy between a futuristic inventor (Aquarius) and a mystical alchemist (Scorpio).

Imagine the inventor, representing Aquarius, with wild ideas and a vision for a world beyond the ordinary. They’re tinkering with gadgets, new technology, the possibilities of AI (always in a positive use for society), pushing boundaries, and dreaming of a brighter, more progressive future.

Now, meet the alchemist, embodying Scorpio’s energy, delving into the depths of the unknown and seeking what’s beneath the surface of what they hear with their ears. They have a knack for distilling the essence of truth from the shadows, and guiding anyone who will listen, through the alchemical process of self-discovery.

Together, these two form a dynamic duo, blending innovation with depth, and intellect with intuition. It’s like watching sparks fly in a laboratory of the soul, where ideas merge with emotions, and revolutions are born from introspection.

So, while they are in square to one another, they in fact have the potential to bring out the best in each other, and YOU.

In about a week we will have the Lunar New Year AND a New Moon in Aquarius.

What does all of this mean for you?

Well, if you’re like many of us, you’re just now starting to feel like you’re getting some “gas” in your personal tank. You’re just now starting to feel like the year has begun and you’re ready to at least contemplate what you want to create for yourself in 2024.

There are some astrological transits that explain all of that but I won’t go into that here.

Instead, you have about a week before this New Year really gets off the ground.

So, here are some ways to make use of this energy:

Innovate Your Routine: Embrace the Aquarian spirit by injecting innovation into your daily routine. Try a new approach to your morning rituals or incorporate a creative twist into your work. It’s time to break free from the ordinary and infuse your life with fresh, unconventional vibes.

Deep Dive into Self-Reflection: I don’t know about you, but I have been having some REALLY DEEP realizations about myself since the last New Moon. None of them “pretty”, but they have allowed me to create a shift in a new way of BE-ing in my world. So I invite you to channel Scorpio’s transformative energy by dedicating moments to deep self-reflection. Journal about your dreams, fears, and desires. What emotional baggage can you release during this lunar phase? Unearth hidden truths about yourself, paving the way for profound personal growth.

Connect with Like Minds: Draw inspiration from Aquarius’s community-oriented nature. Seek out like-minded individuals who share your passion for growth and innovation. Join forums, groups, or engage in conversations that expand your perspective (like the Thriving Circle!). 😁 Together, you’ll create a supportive space for collective evolution.

Revamp Your 2024 Goals & Intentions: Use the Scorpio moon’s energy to reassess your goals. What aspects of your life need a shift to make room for a greater sense of fulfillment and meaning for you? Align your aspirations more closely with your authentic self. Set intentions that resonate with your deepest desires, allowing the energy to propel you towards purposeful growth.

Express Your Authenticity: Merge the Aquarian urge for individuality with Scorpio’s authenticity. Embrace and express your unique self without reservation. WHOA, not always easy, I know! Whether through art, writing, or sharing your thoughts with others, let your true colors shine. This cosmic dance encourages you to be boldly and unapologetically yourself.

In summary, envision yourself as both the inventor and the alchemist.

You, my friend, are the architect of your destiny, crafting a future that honors your Divine intellect, intuition, innovation, and introspection. 🌟✨

With good energy,
