Scorpio New Moon, Solar Eclipse. The New Moon on Thursday, October 23 will bless us with a fresh emotional cycle that can be used to approach life, work and relationships. The New Moon is prime time to become still, so that we may become aware of our thoughts and our emotions, so that may re-adjust our inner self (in new ways) to move closer to our dreams. Spend quality time dreaming and making wishes, to experience the heart. And let this be enough, to influence the vibrations of the universe.
Whether dreams lean toward love and relationships, or to work, career and business – the timing of the New Moon is ideal to plant new seeds of intention. And this watery New Moon is in the powerfully potent sign of Scorpio, merging into transformational seas with a Scorpio Sun, Scorpio Moon, Scorpio Saturn, Pisces Neptune, and Pisces Chiron. All this liquid flow in the cosmos is creating amazing currents, which can influence high tides, extreme precipitation and flooding. As emotions elevate as well, sexual juices and body fluids are stirred, to secrete moisture, saliva, sweat and tears.
New Moons create new beginnings, and in Scorpio – our movement will be deep and intense. A new emotional path is available now, to better love ourselves, through self-sacrifice. Gaining more, by letting go. And by looking inside ourselves, we can use the light that we carry as our guide, toward self-reflection for inner transformation. A simple mantra to help steer our meditation for direction would be ‘Let go, to free flow’.
I would rather die of passion than of boredom. Vincent van Gogh
The New Moon’s conjunction with loving Venus (values, love and money) assists us in supportive ways to beautify our inner work. Venus can help us to design and attract our intention, but also gravitate to manifest our idea and desire. And because we ARE, what we think – use what you feel, to become one with your thoughts.
We’ve been swaying between the recent Aries Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse and the Solar Eclipse on Thursday, October 23. Unfamiliar emotions have been stirred, and for many, this can feel very uncomfortable – as strange buried feelings rise to the surface. This can instinctually trigger fear, insecurity, and major extremes within our psyche – that can force abrupt changes and instant decisions. The dark storm of the Solar Eclipse can brew crisis and chaos that are well-known for major transformations and new beginnings. These lunar vibrations can last up to three to six months. Close doors, to open new doors. Release, to strengthen power. Brave the storm, to experience the rainbow.
And as we take our control back, whether this is in our work or our relationships; we may assume that others can be forced to change. No. It just doesn’t work that way – especially in these merciless vibes that the Scorpio energy is made of. If the ego is permitted to be in charge, it will dictate and push demands onto others. If there is disatisfaction with the results, the ego is threatened with what seems to be either rejection or betrayal. Left with no other choice, the ego warps itself into something more ‘superior’, to manipulate and emotionally abuse, to seek its revenge. And by injecting this poison, insecurities and powerlessness are instantly destroyed. No. That’s not how it work.
Let us forget with generosity those who cannot love us. Pablo Neruda
In order to take better control, quietly have a conversation with yourself, or your higher source, angels, or spirit guides. Concentrate on what is NEEDED, to feel safe and productive. Then create it, through INNER transformation. These are self-reflective waters right now, and they encourage us to look into the mirror. By seeing and studying our own image, we can have a better chance of knowing who we’ve become – by asking ourselves some very realistic questions. Rather than make excuses to blame others, dare to see yourself as your own worst enemy – by having a conversation with your own demons. Basically because it’s time that we own our shite (Saturn in Scorpio), and finally be accountable for our own unhealthy attachments, mismanaged emotions and uncontrollable obsessions.
So if any of us are looking for something (or someone) to release, terminate, or destroy (Pluto in Capricorn) – so that new growth may be generated) – let each of us first begin with ourselves. To read the complete article, or to experience a professional session with the author, click here.
