SCORPIO NEW MOON: Me And My Shadow
The New Moon arrives at 26 degrees of Scorpio on Saturday, November 18 at 6:42 AM EST.
We are presented over and over again with profound opportunity to begin anew. There is tremendous comfort in this. As we begin a new lunar cycle, I find myself reflecting upon what I wish to bring into consciousness during this deep and mysterious New Moon in Scorpio. New Moons present a personal venue for inner intimacy. As the Sun and Moon are aligned with each other, the energy is potent and concentrated. We are blessed with an opportunity for quietude. An inner monologue longs to be written and expressed. How will we set our internal stage?
At this juncture, Scorpio the Scorpion is inviting us to dive into the deep well of inner darkness, for it is within these depths of consciousness that transformation of the highest order awaits us.
Scorpio The Scorpian is a fixed water sign, ruled by Mars and Pluto. The qualities of death, transformation, depth, darkness, intensity, power, passion, faithfulness, bravery, and focus are ever present to us as we embark upon the inner quest. Scorpio embodies the archetypes of The Detective, The Sorcerer, The Hypnotist, and The Transformer.
The Scorpian is not a pretty creature. And yet, it is beautiful.
Wherever Scorpio resides in our natal chart is where we fully embody the darkness. It is an area of profound personal power. This realm of our deepest wounding offers tremendous opportunity for transformation within this lifetime. And yet, it can act as a blind spot that lives in exile from our greater wholeness. At this time we have the will, the vision, the capacity and the courage to face our darkness, our human shadow: that which we deem unlovable.
This place is one in which we have perhaps neglected to inhabit. It is a realm of difficult psychic, emotional, psychological and spiritual matter. While it is an area of the psyche that we have neglected, for it can feel like just too much to face and feel, this very area of trepidation is powerful beyond measure. When these emotions are faced and felt, we rise from the ashes like the phoenix, a powerful mythological symbol closely aligned with Scorpio. We die in order to be born anew.
We may find ourselves undergoing deep alchemical processes whereby transformation, transmutation and transfiguration are means for transport from the uncomfortable inner complacency which has been longing for recognition and release. Herein, beneath the darkness, lies the true gold of our inherent nature, our divine essence; the purest and highest expression of the true self.
What area of your life has reached a place of completion? Do you feel a kind of death to your old self? Can you release to the light that which no longer serves your highest good? Where do you need to take a risk? Can you recognize the dark emotions through a lens of love? Where are you meeting the shadow in the outer world and with whom? Can you behold your deepest wound as the source of your greatest gift?
The darkness is a sacred chamber.
Enter the chamber.
Your dark angel awaits you.
The sacred chamber is your heart.
New Scorpio Moon Blessings Upon You.
