Today’s New Moon is deep, intense, and healing. Scorpio is fearless, wants to understand, goes straight for the heart with its surgical, piercing gaze. Scorpio will tackle what others avoid: the nitty gritty details of finance, or data, or illness, or sexuality, or the emotions that go so deep, acknowledging them threatens a tidal wave. Scorpio stares into the face of death, and even follows death down... Scorpio will die to its old self so it can be utterly renewed and transformed.
There is such a beautiful opportunity here for us to acknowledge how we have yet to heal, how we hold ourselves back, how we self-sabotage--to see it, and forgive ourselves. Then harness the new cycle of the moon to set into place new habits that will support rather than harm. There is no place for guilt in healing; healing requires going deep, acknowledging our guilt, then releasing it.
Scorpio’s depth means the boundary between the conscious and unconscious is more permeable. This helps us see more clearly our patterns of thought. How do you talk to yourself? What are the thought patterns that are so entrenched you barely notice them? Thoughts are incredibly powerful. If they don’t seem powerful, it’s because most of the time, thoughts are unconscious, and familiar. Thoughts we inherited from our families and cultures may seem so commonplace we don’t even see them. Until we do. Seeing is powerful. With consciousness, we can choose. We can choose which thoughts to hold as our own, and which we no longer believe.
Scorpio is powerful in its depths, like the force of a volcano hidden beneath the surface. We have an opportunity now to acknowledge our own power. To honour our resources, that lay hidden. To consider the responsibility that comes with power. How will YOU use the power you have?
To learn more about what this New Moon means for YOU, download your birthchart, if you haven’t yet. Find which house (numbers 1-12 in each pie slice) the Sun (green circle with dot) and Moon (green crescent) fall in. Then look to this chart to learn the meaning of that house. This will tell you in which area of your life this New Moon signals a new start.
I’ll be adding more examples from readers’ lives soon! Thank you so much to all those who sent in their charts and stories. In the meantime, have a beautiful, healing New Moon.
