The Scorpio New Moon is exact at 10:38am PDT, providing an opportunity to engage with the depths, the darkness, our fear, and rise up renewed, re-born. How do we lay waste to the secrets that keep us from moving forward? How do we use our experience with darkness to create growth and spur positive transformation? This New Moon is loaded with harmonious and positive potential: download The Moon Guides to find out how your sign can most effectively focus your efforts! Read on for six ways to work with this transformational energy.
The Sun and Moon are aligned with Mercury in Scorpio, which grants us a penetrating, depth-seeking awareness. We seek to understand the motivations, the underlying psychology, that lie beneath the surface. With the Sun, Moon, and Mercury all in harmonious trine to Neptune, we possess the power of empathy — which means we possess the potential for forgiveness.
This is about learning to embody your power by acknowledging and accepting your whole being — unsightly flaws and all.
How to make this energy work for you? The Moon Guides have insight particular to each sign; read on for other ways to get the most out of the Scorpio New Moon.
Turn your attention inward
This is the point of the year in which things turn inward for sustenance. Create space for meditative practices to integrate and ground into some of the changes (both positive and negative) the past few months have brought your way. This attentiveness to our inner workings allows us to enter more fully into the present moment, which is crucial for the December arrival of Sagittarius' expansive energies.
Tell your secrets
Secrets are not powerful in and of themselves; it's their hiddenness that gives them their edge. This is the time to give voice to what has gone unspoken, particularly in your intimate relationships, so that the power of what is hidden can be dissolved.
Face your fears
There exists no opportunity for transformation without taking this crucial first step. We must unmask our fears before we can rise above them. We must be brave enough, strong enough, to look our reasons for resisting integration full in the face before we can transform them into fuel for experiencing our fullest selves.
Consider how little we take the time to truly sit and be with our felt experience. Consider how our feeling-nature is an intelligence in its own right, capable of guiding us into higher alignment with our true path. Consider the cumulative toll that inner alienation creates.
Contemplate your debts
Whether financial or energetic, debts constrain our attention by dragging our awareness to the past. This cycle, work to uncover how you can resolve those leakages, and set about doing the work to free yourself from them.
Rise from the ashes
A powerful thing happens when we face our fears: we realize that we are more powerful, more capable than what we thought might defeat us. One symbol for Scorpio is the Phoenix, the great bird that rises from the ashes of the past. Another is the Eagle, who views the world, with all its chaos and discord, from high above the fray. Consider these archetypes as you work with the energies of the Scorpio New Moon over the next 72 hours. Let them show you what awaits on the other side of transformation.
