Collective Energies:

This year’s Scorpio New Moon reminds us of the full spectrum of experience inherent with this mystical sign. It invites the metamorphosis of our personal and collective lives while reminding us of the current intensity and turbulent times. No sign in the zodiac seems more misunderstood than Scorpio’s desire to shed or transform in the service of the unseen, powerful evolutionary force. Though before we come into contact or surrender to this process, we often experience the other shadow elements of Scorpio such as manipulation, power, secrets, or shame.

When Scorpio energy is misunderstood it reveals itself as fear of the shadow or inappropriate intensity coupled with melodramatic or emotional self-absorption. It may become regressed, jealous, or obsessed before the gifts of the shadow become more visible. As when we move into vulnerability and a reverence for the darkness, Scorpio casts a new light- a light that moves us more towards the regenerative and renewal inherent in the life-death-life cycle of existence itself. A beauty found only in our deepest fears and the ability to show them to others as a way of building intimacy.

Speaking of beauty, the planet Venus of connection and intimacy remains in retrograde through November 16. It made it way back through Scorpio and currently sits in Libra as a revisiting of the ways codependency or a desire to keep peace may impede our ability to have healthy relationships. Utilize these next several weeks to uncover past patterns in relationships that inhibit future happiness.

This sacred time of less light and more inward time is an annual tool for coming into contact more with our depths and inner work.  The trine to Neptune indicates an ease in connecting to our spiritual side when the Scorpio darkness may feel like too much. It also suggests the dream world as a potent time for insights during this new moon phase. Notice themes or people who show up and what they represent to you for further perception.

This new moon offers a new way of orienting to our pain and moving towards connection through revealing rather than hiding and controlling. It’s as if the underworld opens to us and we descend to find more of ourselves that we may have left behind when we were busy with false routes to power. In addition, Jupiter leaves Scorpio and moves into Sagittarius the day after the new moon prompting us into more of the shadow discovery before more expansion.

 

Everyday Ritual Recommendations:

BE // Spend extra time noticing intense emotions or jealousy and value and honor them as aspects of the soul craving attention.

DO // Pay attention to dreams and symbols you notice in waking and sleeping world for clues about aspects of self wanting expression

EAT // Foods connected to mystery and the underworld such as pomegranates, blackberries, or mushrooms

WEAR // Black connects us the cosmos and the dark/new moon, a lovely time to try on many shades or textures of black
