Today we are traveling through Moon Phase 26.  This is a Mercury phase vibrating with the 12th house and the sign Scorpio.  All we have hidden from=, ignored, repressed or denied is now trying to communicate with us.  If you’re feeling confined by anything today its for a purpose, for something is trying to get your attention.

Phase 26 is associated with all that is ugly.  We label thing as being ugly because they are something we don’t want to look at.  When we can look at them and truly see them then they become

beautiful.  I personally think tarantulas are as beautiful as flowers.  On one level I believe what I’m saying, on another level would I hold a tarantula?  No!  Do I want to own one as a pet?  No!  A part of me thinks they’re ugly because I’m afraid of them.

The  best way to handle the energy of phase 26 is to allow whatever is coming up for you to come up.  To not repress anything.  To listen to your deep self.  And to learn to see things in a new way — especially things you don’t want to look at.

Today you get to see what’s confining you, and you find that its your mind — the way you’re perceiving things.  The mask of Phase 26, mask being the opposite phase, is 12.  Phase 12 wants to figure things out, to solve the problem.  That’s what 26 yearns for, but what it really needs to do is to see the problem in a new way, and maybe to see that it isn’t a problem at all, that you’ve made it a problem because you’ve limited your perception.

We may feel like we don’t know what is going on.  We may feel powerless.  When a person can’t handle these feelings they may feel driven to lash out, to commit a crime just so they can feel some power.  For those of us, though, who are dedicated to revealing the truth no matter what it takes Phase 26 is a great blessing, for it can connect us to our lost parts, our profound depths.
