We are officially in Scorpio Season! The New Moon joins the Sun in the watery sign of Scorpio, and in a few short days… Mercury will be going retrograde in Scorpio as well!
This will bring us all a series of events and developments that we didn’t even know we needed to help awaken our potential.
This New Moon in Scorpio is bringing us in highly charged energy to assist us during our rebirth this season. What has been hidden will be uncovered, and what has been asleep will be stirred awake.
This New Moon in Scorpio might have many of us feeling on edge… There is a sense of “ expecting the unexpected,” this month, especially around this new moon. You might be feeling restless right now, spontaneous, or even erratic! Be prepared to embrace change, and surrender to the flow.
Politicians might make decisions we don’t agree with, or others might be making decisions about politicians we don’t agree with! It’s time for you to decide which side you are on to help the Earth shift into a new paradigm. The Earth might also have some messages for us in some unexpected ways… in the form of storms, quakes, and even fires.
This new moon is opposite Uranus which gives a sense that accidents are likely to happen, especially if we act impulsively!
The best way to handle this new moon is to remain flexible and adaptable. We can’t control the change we might be experiencing, but we can control how we feel about it and how we respond. Our response is our responsibility… so be sure to not act in an erratic or impulsive manner.
Full Crone Moon in Taurus
The Full Crone Moon in Taurus takes place on the 12th of November. This full moon has the potential to be a busy but productive one. It’s safe to expect good news and welcome in feelings of accomplishment and celebration. There is a sense of our goals and intentions finally paying off. We are able to see physical and tangible results of our efforts.
The full moon has the potential to light up what isn’t working in your life, work and relationships so that you can take steps towards resolving them.
Don’t forget to check back here on the full moon for the ritual we have planned to help better tap into this Crone Moon energy! This is also a great night to make a gratitude list, set some intentions a color in your moondala in the Tune to the Moon planner!
The card pulled for this week is Libra: The Peacemaker. With Mercury retrograde in full swing, you might be finding yourself in the midst of chaos! It is time to remember to find peace in every moment. Create harmony in your situation. What does your situation need to bring in more balance? This is a great time to deepen a relationship that you have been wanting to take to the next level. Remember to seek balance first. Remain diplomatic in your approach. Don’t play the peacemaker for the sake of others if it doesn’t also benefit you!
NEW MOON IN SCORPIO ~ DARK, DEEP, ENCHANTING
Tonight we have a New Cazimi Moon in Scorpio at 8:39 pm PST (11:30 EST).
Scorpio is a fixed water sign ruled by Mars and Pluto. He is the eighth astrological sign and rules the 8th house: house of birth, death, mysteries, and transformation ~ possibly, the house of your secret power. The number 8 is the symbol for balance and harmony and on its side is the symbol for infinity and a constant flow of energy and power.
As a water sign, Scorpio gains his strength from the deep, emotional realm. He can teach you to how to reach the clear life-giving water found at the deep, dark space of your internal well, your unconsciousness.
In his research, Carl Jung identified that in our youth we are compelled to repress certain aspects of our personality. For example, boys can be discouraged to be soft-hearted and can quickly learn the benefits of suppressing their compassionate side, which then becomes unconscious. Girls, on the other hand, are criticized if they are too assertive or independent and can rapidly learn to conform to social norms. As we mature, we find that we reclaim these hidden aspects of ourselves, by reclaiming our inner child; or maybe better identified for many of us as our innocence, playfulness or creativity.
Our highest potential is hidden within our unconsciousness. Many times we can confuse the search for the self as being absorbed in self-fulfillment. On the contrary, encountering the inner Self can be a deeply moving and emotional experience. When we move inward to connect to our higher Self, we can often find ourselves humbled because we are forced to recognize the limits of our own conscious ego. and the potential of humanity. We find out how small our ego is compared to what humankind can be. And when we learn to listen deeply, we can tap into a powerful pathway to renewal and clarity. Let’s look at the meaning of the word deep as it holds such a strong essence for Scorpio:
- deep as an adjective means: extending far down from the top or surface; very intense or extreme
- deep as a noun means: the sea or ocean
- deep as an adverb means: far down or in; deeply.
The ocean is a dark unknown, yet teeming with hidden forms of life; in dreams, the ocean represents the unconscious. Fishermen and -women, therefore, symbolize the process of retrieving material from the unconscious. We carry hidden life within our subconscious.
Mandalas often symbolize the higher or inner Self. The meaning of the Mandala in Sanskrit is magic circle. Creating mandalas can offer a “safe refuge of inner reconciliation and wholeness”, while at the same time provide a sacred space into which we can invite the Self. When we create Mandalas, whether creating our own or coloring a Mandala, we are making a personal symbol of who we are at that moment.
So let’s dive deep under this New Moon in Scorpio. Here is a ritual for you to connect/experience your inner Self:
- Draw a Mandala if you can, if you prefer, choose one of these Mandala pictures and print it out to color, or purchase a Mandala coloring book and pick a picture that you feel drawn too.
- If possible, draw or color your Mandala during the Cazimi Moon, starting at least 30 minutes prior to the New Moon and going at least 30 minutes past the New Moon (i.e. for PST, start at 8:09 pm and go until at least 9:09 pm)
- And then learn to interpret and understand the message of the Mandala you chose today at this beautiful site!
- Intentions can be so beautiful under a New Moon, this month I encourage you to let your Mandala guide you to your intention. Finding a way to connect to that deep space within you that holds all your beliefs, your beauty, secrets, love, and guidance.
- On the Crescent Moon on Monday, plant the intention that is revealed to you.
As so well-spoken in the Book of Runes, “When in deep water ~ become the diver”.
