Scorpio season is all about the darkness – our inner passions, our secret world of dreams and nightmares, the truths that must be told. The Scorpio New Moon on October 27th will provide us with an opportunity to dive deep into these depths where the subconscious and the soul meet – where we can find Truth and true transformation.
Scorpio is associated with intense emotions – the dark feelings such as jealousy and hatred which normally don’t see the light of day. However, anything which we hide in the darkness never has the opportunity to become transformed. Scorpio fearlessly plumbs these depths of darkness and supports us in our quest to regain the power that we have lost through self-denial and diminishment.
Scorpio is also associated with sexuality. The power of sexuality is legendary – it has been used by magicians of all types since humans have walked the planet. Sexuality can empower us, or it can cause us to lose ourselves just as easily. The Scorpio New Moon encourages new ways of integrating sexuality into our lives. An awkward quincunx from the New Moon to Chiron (wounding and healing) and the Black Moon Lilith suggests that there could be some difficulty taking on the mantle of sexual power if unhealed wounds, and the rage that may live in them, create blockages through which the energy is unable to transmit.
A Jupiter aspect to Ceres during this time will provide opportunities for us to nurture ourselves so that we have the means and ability to really dive deep through these blocks. Under this influence, nourishing the body with delicious and healthy foods will help us to integrate body with mind and spirit, and to connect more deeply with the True Self that emerges under Scorpio’s tutelage.
Scorpio offers nothing less than magic – the Magick of harnessing the will in service to the divine. This Scorpio New Moon is energized by an opposition from Uranus to slip outside of your comfort zone and bring in energies that are completely new and exciting, with information and wisdom that comes from beyond the mind, merging the conscious intellect with a multidimensional level of awareness. Of all the New Moons to harness for your own personal growth, this one is potentially the most dynamic and offers the most potential for transformation.
