Fully immersed in mysterious Scorpio season, the intensity of the Scorpio Sun continues to light the way for a deep dive into the depths of our psyche. Increasing this powerful Scorpio energy is the Moon joining the Sun, creating the next lunar phase, the New Moon in Scorpio. The New Moon is a time of creation where we end one phase and begin another with a blank slate that awaits the imprint of our desires and needs. During this New Moon we are called to bravely face something within and excavate deeply hidden shadows that need to come into the light to be dealt with. We are now ready to activate the process of healing and regeneration as part of our next chapter.
Scorpio, the fixed water sign of the zodiac is deep, passionate, and has a natural filter for the taboo. With a laser like focus, Scorpio’s powerful feeling nature is compelled to dig up and confront all emotionally charged truths with courage. Ruled by Pluto, the planet of transformation is currently in Capricorn, bringing a serious reminder that meaningful and wise use of personal power is called for.
Adding an edge and increasing the already passionate nature of Scorpio, is Mars in Scorpio. This fiery planet compels us to own our feelings and share them. Mercury, the planet of communication in the optimistic sign of Sagittarius offers a more open and positive energy in conversations that can be an uplifting counterbalance during complex or intense interactions. Be careful though, of assuming or using words carelessly. As Mars is a naturally forceful energy, be mindful as you communicate and hold safe space for others to have their say. This is an opportunity to reveal deeply held feelings that can have a significant impact on your life and the quality of your closest relationships through profound healing that deepens your personal connection, including the bonds of sexual intimacy.
Sitting opposite the Moon is Uranus in Taurus, whose disruptive action of change breaks up the status quo where shifts in finances, resources, skills and material stability continue. Creating tension and awareness around the Moon in Scorpio’s need for control in determining outcomes, this aspect offers the potential to find the balance between deep introspection and emotional breakthroughs and healing with our growing need to re-stabilize in an evolving world.
Neptune in Pisces offers support during this Moon, asking us to surrender and step into the flow of inspiration and intuition that feeds new visions for the future.
During this Moon phase we are given the opportunity and motivation to actively clear out old fears, wounds and limiting patterns. In doing so we are able to claim wholeness and a sense of heartfelt renewal out of the ashes of the past, setting forth on a new chapter of life more focused, honest, courageous and authentic.
