The New Moon in Scorpio
October 30, 2016 - 11:38am
On Saturday, October 30th at 11:38 am, the New Moon will occur at 7 degrees, 43 minutes, of Scorpio.
When the Moon once again begins its cycle, and the sky is dark, our senses turn inward. Stillness. Silence. We feel…memories form in our consciousness. Our attention is drawn to something; a thought, an awareness, that begins to take shape. The onset of something not yet known. Time…to…get…started…..
In Scorpio, we are asked to go deep, into the depths of the shadows of our mind, heart, spirit. Scorpio is probing, piercing the layers of the psyche and asks us to honestly look at old memories and wounds that keep us bound in our past, and in our pain. Scorpio brings us the message, that healing and transformation can be found in acknowledging all of ourselves, our humanness; and that with loving conscious commitment, we can choose to live from our higher selves.
Mercury in Scorpio, is in a close conjunction with the New Moon. Mercury is the messenger, and represents thought, perception, and the various methods of communication. In Scorpio, the mental process is deep and focused, searching for truth.
Mystical Neptune in a tight trine with Mercury provides some gentle supportive energy. Neptune in Pisces increases our intuition and inspires greater compassion as we experience this powerful New Moon. Heartfelt conversation with yourself and others is called for. Be aware of the potential for becoming stuck in the dark of your thoughts and feelings. Reaching out to trusted friends and family can help with this process, and regain some perspective.
There is something on the other side of pain. There is potential. Of light. Of strength. Of love. Of healing. There is the hope that is fed by new beginnings….
