The Scorpio new moon is all about self-mastery and is considered by some to be the most mysterious and miraculous moon of the year. It opens up the door to hidden patterns and conditioning that subtly control our actions and choices. It can also be one of the most challenging and emotional painful moons yet at the same time can be ecstatically transformational.
The full moon in Taurus may illuminate some of your fears concerning what you don’t have. The new moon can now show you WHY you don’t have what you desire or intentionalise. Scorpio energy probes deep, deep into our depths and will tend to bring to the surface the darkness that we sometimes find hard to accept within ourselves.
This gives us a deeper understanding of ourselves so we can find the causes of our problems and begin to genuinely heal the fractured parts of ourselves. This is no easy task and sometimes pride and ego can stop us from really accepting all that we are. It takes courage and an inner strength to commit to making ingrained behavioural changes.
This moon is one of healing and transformation, so take the opportunity to make changes in your life – become more empowered in all ways. Plant seeds for change with positive thoughts and attitudes and let go of that baggage that is slowing you down! Surrender to the changes that happen, whether you want it or feel ready for it or not.
Be careful not to fall into the victimisation and suffering that Scorpio can represent. Keep following your intuition, that little whisper inside that is constantly prompting us to take action. It is guiding us towards the right type of creative inspiration, friendship or business decision that will help us fulfil our dreams.
RITUAL FOR THE NEW MOON
This ritual is all about becoming more empowered and strengthening your inner being. Committing to change will help you to fulfill your goals and dreams more efficiently and effortlessly.
Sit in a quiet room – be patient and wait until you have completed all your tasks for the day and you are ready to give the time to yourself. Light some candles and burn incense to create an ambient space. Sit in a comfortable position with your back straight. Close your eyes and become aware of your body. Connect deeply and slowly with your toes, legs, thighs, torso, arms, neck, face and then crown. Exhale all your stresses and release all your frustrations, just breathe them right out of your body. Repeat this process three times. Make sure you are feeling relaxed and stress free.
Refresh your memory of the answers to the questions you asked yourself at the last new moon. Are you where you want to be?
Look at where your life is now and ask your self what you need to do to change certain aspects of it.
Write down any negative behaviour that is holding you back from achieving it. This can be very liberating if you are brave enough to be honest and vulnerable. Go into the dream time and ask your wise woman what you can do to let go of a negative pattern or conditioning so that you can grow and become more empowered.
Focus on one particular relationship or project and make a firm decision to change something in a positive direction, be it in your relationship with your partner, a child, business partner, work environment, parent or sibling. Feed it positive energy, thoughts and intentions, however difficult this may seem at this moment. See yourself in a positive situation with them and feel and believe it. Allow the relationship to develop, nurture and mature. Find the inner tolerance, intimacy and forgiveness that will help you heal the wounds and challenges. Even when the going gets tough keep on keeping on with the positive thoughts, overcoming any inner resistance, and by the next new moon you will find yourself in a new place…
