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

Did you know that the number one cause of human suffering is desire for something other than all that we have in the present moment? Welp, the anecdote to this distress is GRATITUDE, which so happen to be our theme for November 💕✨ When we stop our mind from spinning into the past and future, and instead carefully catalog all the blessings we have right at this very moment, we see that we are already the blooming rose we may be wishing for 🌹

Most beginners to astrology are familiar with their own sun signs and traits, and have awareness that signs of like elements are compatible (Water with Water, Earth with Earth, etc). But what about the relationship between other signs? In her comprehensive book Love Signs: A New Approach to the Human Heart, leading astrological authority Linda Goodman examines the nature of a relationship and it's potential for success by organizing the possible pairings based upon their sun signs position on the Karmic Wheel of Life (pictured above) into what she terms "Sun Sign Patterns". Simply put, Sun Sign Patterns express the number of houses away two signs are from each other.

Hoping you all faired well in the heat of last month’s Astro turbulence. Thankfully, I do see the cosmos easing up slightly this month. The big news is the end of several major planetary retrogrades. I want to take a moment to touch on each one and exactly why these retrogrades have taken place. I always joke and tell clients that retrogrades are almost ALWAYS happening. If it weren’t for them, we’d never “clean out the fridge” life-wise. Inner planetary retrogrades such as Mercury and Mars can be felt much more intensely than, for example, a Pluto or Neptune retrograde. Inner planets closer to Earth tend to feel like things are a bit wonky; however, they generally pass more quickly and have shorter retrograde periods.
