8. Moon in Scorpio – Kidney Function Energy

Seeking the Truth

We might enjoy beauty, harmony, and friends with Libra, but enough of that, and we start to need a bit more depth. And here, steps in the energy of Scorpio with its intense drive for seeking the truth. Scorpio has no tolerance for falsities or superficiality. It also gives us the courage to face our deepest fears and overcome them. With Scorpio, it’s truth or bust. 

When un-balanced, the pursuit of truth can be very clinical and cold. We hurt people with the excusing of telling them the truth. We become single-minded in our drives to the destruction of anything that stays in our way. 

To take advantage of the gifts of Scorpio – honesty and clear-sightedness – and to avoid its dark pitfalls, for the next two and a half days, we’ll harmonize the Kidney Function Energy. Here is how to do it:

Left Side

Place your Left hand on the pubic bone and with the Right hand hold the Left little toe.

Right Side

Place your Right hand on the pubic bone and with the Left hand hold the Right little toe.

If holding the little toe causes you discomfort, sandwich your hip area by placing one hand on the pubic bone and the other on the coccyx. I love this position as it simultaneously harmonizes Kidney, Spleen and the Main Central Energy.

How It Helps

Kidney Function Energy is arguably the one that needs most of our attention of the twelve aspects of the daily Function Energy. It is vital to the health of the reproductive system and it is also involved with the breaking apart of the animal matter that we eat – meat, cheese, meat, etc.

Mentally, Kidney is the number eight in the twelve-fold division and therefore corresponds to truth seeking Scorpio. As you harmonize Kidney Function Energy, ask “What truths must I face to release myself from my current burdens?” Don’t forget to write down all the thoughts that come to you at the time.

Here is the correspondence between the signs and the 12-fold Function Energy: (1) Aries/Lung; (2) Taurus/Large Intestine; (3) Gemini/Stomach; (4) Cancer/Spleen; (5) Leo/Heart; (6) Virgo/Small Intestine; (7) Libra/Bladder; (8) Scorpio/Kidney; (9) Sagittarius/Diaphragm; (10) Capricorn/Umbilicus; (11) Aquarius/Gall Bladder; (12) Pisces/Liver.

Coming up next is 9. Sagittarius – Diaphragm Function Energy.

      Hi Srinivas,

      I am afraid I do not have an answer for you. I would recommend that you get checked by a medical professional. That is what I would do for myself or my family.

      I mostly use JSJ to gain clarity and reduce stress with the occasional relief of symptoms. A favorite flow of mine is The Third Method Correction Self Help.

      I have also found that deepening my spiritual practice is very helpful in times of suffering. It helps me make peace with what is, and also gain clarity of the situation. In the meantime, I would still seek an opinion from a medical professional.

      I wish you all the best!
