The 18th is a Good Day To . . . figure out why the urge to be erratic or to surprise others with the unexpected is warring so directly with the desire for stability, regularity, and a measured response. We’re looking for a reaction, or to prove our uniqueness or individuality, and it’s not pretty. Things are flying out of our mouths, and our message is meant to rock others, to cause chaos! And others are shocking us with their message, or openly rebelling, or pulling a disappearing act, too; it’s like a competition to see who can be most outré–but kind of a sad one, as we’re all looking intently at those around us, since our goal isn’t expression, but to elicit a response.

Freeing ourselves from the compulsion to stir it up may be as simple as grounding ourselves. Look to the element of your natal Moon for guidance on what can make you feel secure–which in turn allows you to relax and opt out of the potential rumble. Water signs may need a bath, a swim, a good cry, a spa treatment, or merely to stay hydrated, in order to avoid manufacturing mayhem, while Earth signs benefit from sharing a nourishing meal, doing something highly tactile like sewing, sculpting, getting a massage, or actually getting down and dirty in the garden. Fire signs need activity–the more demands made on the muscles, and/ or the more excitement courted, the better, while Air signs–oh Air signs, always living in your head! Try intense intellectual engagement, whatever allows mental escapism for you, or the opposite, whatever allows you to blank out, a meditative state that goes beyond the usual, giving the feeling of either blending with the Universe or of not existing at all!

Current Moon in Scorpio just means you need to be passionate about your grounding choice, while being sure to soothe yourself even as you don’t ignore reality, or endanger your health or your career.

A Good Day To . . . is based on the aspects perfecting on each day, Pacific time.
