On November 4th, we have the deep and penetrating New Moon at 12 degrees of Scorpio. Often in the days leading up to the new moon, we can feel quite drained and raw. With no moonlight to guide our sensitive souls, there is a feeling of being lost or just an emptiness present within our being. The New Moon heralds a time of fresh perspectives, new ideas and the slate being wiped clean. She brings renewal, hope and a fresh dawn of faith. Scorpio, the 8th zodiac sign deals with death/rebirth, intensity, shared resources, power and mystery.
The New Moon in Scorpio is here to invite you to dive deep within the hidden and often scary aspects of your psyche. No other sign can plunge to the depths of the unknown quite like a transformational seeking Scorpio. This new moon will ask that you bare your soul and be willing to embrace and hold space for your shadow self. The shadow self is where all of your vulnerabilities and most intimate aspects of your soul lie. There is no running or hiding at this time.
Secrets and mysteries will be revealed with this powerful new moon. Anyone who has prominent Scorpio placements is a magnet for bringing forth these hidden and often hard to read aspects of the psyche in others just by a simple gaze or gesture. These folks know how to face the darkness with reverence and respect and are here to teach others to not fear what is hidden or taboo. There is a grace of strength and tenacity when we can be vulnerable enough to expose what pains us, what keeps us up at night and the traumas we have endured. This is the gift of this new moon. To face your “shadow” with as much respect and kindness as your “light” is to hold a special kind of power and presence that many won’t ever be able to obtain.
The New Moon in Scorpio will be making a 180 degree opposition to retrograde Uranus, the planet of surprises, innovation and independence who is currently in the sign of Taurus. The New Moon in Scorpio opposing retrograde Uranus in Taurus will bring up more shocks and wake up calls within our emotional states. Many of these secrets or just ah ha moments could be rather abrupt and unexpected. Since Taurus and Scorpio deal with the 2nd and 8th house themes many folks could be rather emotional or on edge regarding their perceived values, security and finances vs. others resources, power and agendas. I expect to see lots of news connected to such matters and some of these headlines could be rather scandalous or just unbelievable in nature. Keeping your cool won’t be easy with this aspect but the higher vibration of these two in aspect to one another will be an awareness of honoring one’s sense of freedom and respecting one another’s sacred boundaries.
The New Moon in Scorpio is here to bring the skeletons and traumas of the past to the surface. While this is a new moon and certainly new beginnings are a foot, something must die in order for something new to be reborn. This is the sacred cycle of life. During this moon phase someone or something will be removed from your life. Even if this something is just a mindset or perspective that has been draining your energy and keeping you stuck and complacent.
The lesson and blessing of this New Moon in Scorpio is to not fight or resist this “death” but rather to surrender and to let go. There is so much peace and tranquility within accepting things as they are even if that means them leaving our lives. This of course then leaves room for the rebirth and renewal. The New Moon in Scorpio is here to have you feel all the feels and to honor this process within. It takes an enormous amount of strength to face your shadow and to still love yourself unconditionally. The New Moon in Scorpio is here to have you honor the death/rebirth process, own your power like never before and to integrate your light and dark sides with compassion, understanding and a grateful heart.
