New Moon in Scorpio, November 7th
As the sun and moon dance together in their annual meetup in the deep, dark waters of emotionally intense Scorpio, it is time for us to once more embrace the new moon energies of this passionate water sign.
The moon is, as always, all about our inner world; how we feel and what we need, and the Scorpio new moon is no exception. No, Scorpio throws us into a pool of vulnerability, she revels in mystery and magic, and with her highly introspective qualities she is now ready to take us on a passionate and intimate date with our own Self.
The seductress of the zodiac is all about deep soul searching and reaching higher levels of consciousness, meaning whatever comes up for you around this time it is not likely superficial. In fact, Scorpio just doesn’t do easy breezy – Scorpio does deep, dark and intense. Scorpio wants to devour you, so get ready to get real intimate and peel back all the layers of your soul.
Thus, after a more stable and grounded Taurus full moon two weeks back, the Scorpio new moon may feel strangely emotional and fluid, but don’t let the intensity scare you. Still water runs deep as they say, and Scorpio is here to take you down to the deeper, darker, and more intuitive waters of your own psyche.
Depending on your current level of self-intimacy you may find entering on a date with this part of your Self quite overwhelming and challenging. It is in this dept we house our deepest fears and longings – the ones we haven’t even told ourselves – and naturally many people have their focus on suppressing, rather than befriending this part of themselves, simply to manage to cope with society’s standards and expectations.
This suppression to avoid unpleasant feelings (such as shame, guilt and suffering) will, however, in turn result in a lot of time and energy spent pushing down emotions and unwanted feelings, leaving you completely depleted, and usually without any clue as to why you feel so exhausted and drained. You just know that you don’t feel well.
Because the truth is that by blocking out you are also blocking light and good energy from entering inn. And besides the fact that blocking and controlling emotions takes a lot of energy, you are also hindering yourself from entering that well of inspiration and creativity, the place where you can find your true passion. In other words, you need to face your demons to get to your light, and sad but true, there are no shortcuts.
So, see if you can use this Scorpio new moon to find the courage to go deep. Deeper than your problems and fears, and all the way into the very innermost part of your soul. A Scorpio moon never was and never will be about a quick fix, but it is the perfect moon to start. To sit quietly and listen to your heart and soul. To create an intimate relationship with yourself
Remember that our journey cannot start until we take the first step on the path that leads where we want to go.
So, if you have been waiting for a sign; this is it. The darkness of this new moon is for you and you only. To breathe, to pause and to reconnect with who you are. It is for you to celebrate your uniqueness, and for you to begin to love and accept yourself in your beautiful imperfection.
Don’t be afraid to look inside, and don’t forget to be patient with yourself as you explore. The womb of Scorpio is an excellent place to restore and heal and to learn to gently let go of that which is no longer meant for us. The rawness in Scorpio’s energy is here to teach us how to better sit with, and understand, pain and grief, and to accept loss and what is gone.
And, overwhelming as it may feel as your inner process ebbs and flows, trust that after the energy of this full moon softens, you will have more clarity and feel a greater sense of understanding of the path ahead.
So, for now; just breathe, let go, & simply surrender to the healing powers of this magical Scorpio moon.
It is time to create that home in your heart that is just for you.
It is time to express your truth.
Happy new moon, lovelies!
