Last Saturday, on 18 November, we experienced the Scorpio New Moon*. What a beast! This one is all about transformation and rebirth – about shedding our skin and stepping into the new.
No one ever enjoyed shedding skin. So, this isn’t a comfortable process and from talking to students and different people in my life, I know that for many this is a deeply personal and transformative time.
The days around a New Moon are usually highly charged and full of potential, during which ‘the universe’ listens to our thoughts, wishes, longings and heartfelt desires.
The New Moon cycle in Scorpio offers a powerful opportunity for healing work. As a water sign, this moon points to the emotional realms and the gifts waiting beyond the surface of our awareness – if we are willing to go there.
This can, of course, be challenging. However, challenging experiences deepen our wisdom. Remember where life happens? Exactly – outside of our comfort zone. There we can find more joy, more presence, more gratitude and more power.
The sources of wisdom also suggest that, if we want intimate relationships – with ourselves or others – we must be brave enough to take down barriers, be open and trust. They say being defensive won’t work, but being ourselves will.
Scorpio’s energies are deep, powerful, emotional, purging, transformative, intense, investigative, suspicious, mysterious, hidden and revealing.
It is the sign of death and rebirth. Therefore, it can be dark and fearful, which sometimes is exactly what we need to face.
This prompted me to Google: ‘Scorpio New Moon when is it all over’. Apparently, the effects of the Scorpio New Moon last for four weeks up to 18 December and the best time for making a fresh start is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle – which is now.
As always, I hope it goes well for you this week. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
