new Moon in Scorpio

November 18, 2017

As we head into the darkness of the season, we seem to respond to a natural instinct, turning inward to feelings, memories and intuition. A tending to our personal depths, as we sense nature beginning the ending of another cycle.

The New Moon is a time when our heart cycles back to a need for renewal and recharge, and we can plant the seeds for future happiness and fulfillment. This New Moon in Scorpio, 26 degrees, 19 minutes, calls us all to take a deep look into our souls, with personal stamina and straightforward honesty. There is something that needs our attention.

Scorpio is a fixed water sign that pushes us to the edge of emotions through various life experiences. It takes us to our depths where our personal truth seeks recognition and expression, and our personal pain seeks healing. Emotional honesty and healthy skepticism are valuable allies for Scorpio in getting to the heart of any matter.

This New Moon and Sun in Scorpio both make a supportive water trine with Chiron in Pisces which offers a greater potential for healing by combining loving compassion with deep psychological probing.   Venus and Jupiter also in Scorpio make another water trine to Neptune in Pisces. This aspect adds inspiration, divine guidance, as well as a sense of hopefulness to a rather intense astrological lunar phase.

Emotions can become heightened and consume your time and energy. Often, writing them down in a journal can give them form and provide you some emotional release.  Be gentle with yourself. If you feel stuck and have lost perspective, share you deepest held thoughts and feelings with a trusted friend or loved one. This honest sharing can be deeply cathartic and create greater intimacy in your relationships.

This Moon calls us into the dark and asks us to honestly face our fears, wounds, and old memories so that we can continue the process of healing and claiming our wholeness. So that we can understand and honor who we are and what we truly want or need. This powerful process can begin personal transformation. And transformation can initiate a sense of personal renewal and new beginningsā€¦.

May this New Moon bring you blessingsā€¦
