New Moon in Scorpio
Saturday 18th November 2017
Next Saturday at 10:42 pm (AEDST), the upcoming New Moon in Scorpio will meet the Sun at 26 degrees Scorpio.
A fixed water sign, Scorpio is signified by a running snake. The planet Mars (passion) is Scorpios’ modern ruler while Pluto (transformation) is Scorpio’s traditional ruler. Scorpio relates to 8th house matters such as life and death, sex, passion, power, taxes, inheritance, gaining insight and wisdom through thorough investigation and transformation.
While the Sun illuminates the male initiating force, the Moon rules the feminine, fecund and nurturing energy. It is the Moon’s receptive and reflective nature which indicates emotional and fearful behaviors. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we are more likely to fear entanglement and/or being out of control.
New Moon in Scorpio
This New Moon in Scorpio emphasizes the water element and coincides with the build up of a Mars (Libra) Pluto (Capricorn ) square. Consequently we might feel a certain level of intensity in the lead up, especially if the Mars/Pluto square aspects our personal Sun, Moon or Ascendant.
However, due to the Sun, Moon, Venus and Jupiter all in Scorpio being trined by Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, we have a wonderful opportunity to reflect deeply on issues that matter most to us. Feeling the need of belonging and the urge to merge could turn our reflections into healing poetry. I would go so far as to suggest to take out your watercolors and allow your intuition to take yourself on a journey. Spending time alone, reflecting on the last four weeks and setting intentions for the next cycle is more useful than fueling tensions.
Harness and make the most of the New Moon in Scorpio energy
Ideally take some quiet time next weekend and brainstorm issues related to Scorpio. You can ask yourself questions such as:
How can I
- Learn to trust in my higher consciousness?
- Release anger and emotional trauma?
- Transform my sex life into a spiritual vehicle?
Pondering, dreaming, writing and painting what you come up with helps you identify your personal theme on this healing journey.
Moon Rituals increase our awareness of our seasons and cycles and they help us create more consciously.
