The New Moon in Scorpio.
What a profoundly intense Scorpio New Moon that occurred exact at 6:43 AM EST on 18/11/17.. New Moons represent a new Lunar cycle and the end of one 28 day lunar cycle. A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are at the same 180 degree of the same sign of the zodiac. This month the New Moon is sitting in the highly emotional fixed water sign of Scorpio, and thus the Sun and Moon are recharging and absorbing in its energy. Traditionally the New Moon is the best time to begin something new, to plant seeds of intention, to make a fresh start, and begin a new plan or project. It’s about manifesting our desires!!!
When the Moon is in Scorpio, it is a time to draw in a focus on the positive traits of this star sign. This means passion, romance, depth, perspective, intense sexual energy, building up or creating in-depth personal relationships, transformation and emotional healing. Scorpio’s are very resourceful, stubborn and very probing… Especially when it is in regards to digging deep and uncovering truths no matter how taboo, dark or hidden they may seem to be. This New Moon cycle is also an opportunity to be creative and commit to personal goals, especially in regards to all the positive traits and energies I have just talk about that represent Scorpio.
The energy of the New Moon in Scorpio will be very sexy.. Focus this New Moon on getting sexy, feeling sensual, being happy in your own skin as well as feeling romantic and passionate. Scorpio’s are NOT afraid of having unguarded moments and embracing its dark side. Work with this is you feel you need a boost in this department. Scorpio’s also teach us that “quality over quantity” and “dedication” to one meaningful relationship is more significant and more satisfying than spreading ourselves around.
This New lunar cycle will help us focus on empowerment, transformation, death and rebirth, as Scorpio is ruled by Pluto who rules these key areas in life! This New Moon is a time to turn within, to look deep within, to find out what is no longer working for us emotionally, mentally and physically and transmute it for transformation. As you prepare this new beginning at the New Moon, it is a perfect time to release whatever you must in order to make room for deep new personal growth. It is a time to purge, release and let go and make way for wonderful new things to enter your life. It a time to really honor yourself and the journey you have been on this year! This New Moon forms a trine with Chiron and quincunx Uranus! What no better that for activating healing and awakening! This New Moon Consider what you need to leave behind as you plant seeds of intention and planet a seed for profound deep understanding and growth.
As I mentioned, this New Moon in Scorpio is all about ridding yourself of emotional baggage and any old grudges!!! We may want to pinpoint the things in our lives that make us feel out of control, such as addictions, debts, and work on freeing ourselves of these emotional burdens. These lower frequencies and energies are destructive, toxic and plain old nasty! Scorpio energy helps teach us to face up to them for what they are, at face value, to heal and grow. These are just a few things you can incorporate into your New Moon intentions this month.
This month we will find the energy that we need to find inner strength and to face our Shadows and secrets. We will learn to grow and develop, especially so if you know what house in your birth chart holds 26° Scorpio! This month shine light on the darkness! Find balance between shadow and Light and glow!
This month channel Scorpio’s energy into your New Moon intentions. Don’t neglect your new moon ritual, Here is a link for those who are new to the practice. Keep it simple, take a moment to write down what transformational changes you wish to begin or see within yourself, what you wish create, or increase in the upcoming lunar cycle. The energy will be very strong this weekend and some what overwhelming for some so you can wait and perform your New Moon ritual on Sunday or Monday.
Happy New Moon in Scorpio!
