The Scorpio New Moon falls on October 27-28th and brings strong waves of energy that we will feel deeply to our core.
The cosmic skies are stirring, there is change in the air, and it seems that this New Moon may awaken us to some new truths. Something may catch us off guard or some new information may come to light that shifts us in a completely new direction.
It seems that no matter what comes, we are all being called to awaken and to see the world from a new vantage point.
That is what happens when we experience an event in our lives that is shocking or unexpected. It forces us to look at things from a new lens; it causes us to see things that we once could not see.
In fact, even though the event may have shocked us and rattled our world, sometimes we can look back and see the clues that just didn’t make sense to us at the time. It is these clues and this awareness that we are likely learning how to develop.
Whatever this New Moon brings into our lives, we have to remember to look at the bigger picture and to see things from a bigger perspective. Sometimes it can be easy to get caught up in the nitty-gritty of it all, but when we separate ourselves from the situation and look at it from above, it allows us to see a new beauty in what is unfolding.
How beautiful that we don’t yet know the way. How beautiful that there are elements of life that still confuse us, make us feel deeper than we could have imagined, and reminded us of what is real and pure in our hearts.
How beautiful, that even though we don’t yet know the way, we can spread our wings, shift our awareness, and trust that there is a new unfolding that is destined to come.
Scorpio is ruled over by the Scorpion, but there are two other archetypes for its energy too- the Eagle and the Phoenix.
Scorpio is the sign of transformation so it makes sense that it transforms too. It moves from the Scorpion that is ready to defend itself with its pincers or sting with its tail, into the Eagle which is able to soar high and seek out dangers from miles away. Then, it enters the darkness and turns to ashes, where it eventually rises up as the Phoenix.
It is this journey of metamorphosis that we are being guided to walk down too, no matter what unfolds for us under the dark Moon.
Whatever comes, know that it is part of how we move through our own cycle of ego into the dark night of the soul, and then finally, into spiritual wisdom.
Along with bringing some potentially jarring information to the surface, this New Moon also has some erratic energy around it. We may feel quick to anger or a little overwhelmed, or we may witness this in those around us.
Power struggles may also be at play, so be sure to take measures to protect yourself if you notice any of these dynamics arising.
The New Moon does indeed carry some harsh energies, but sometimes we need intensity to drive the vehicle of transformation.
While we want to remain strong and centered, we also don’t want to limit or cut ourselves off from allowing whatever comes to move us, change us, and transform us.
Under the dark Moon, we are softening; we are coming into ourselves more; we are realizing a new truth, and learning to see the world through a different lens.
We live in a world of seeming duality, and part of our human experience is learning to feel the rainbow of emotions and allowing these emotions to shape us, mold us, and help us become who we are meant to be.
The Scorpio New Moon is also a wonderful point in the month for drawing in a deeper sense of self-acceptance and to also acknowledge the little that we really know about life and the role we are all playing in it.
Under this New Moon, we will feel humbled, and in awe of the world we live in. We may also find ourselves tuning into the possibilities of magic all around us.
As Scorpio is a water sign, we may also feel ourselves ebbing and flowing from one emotion to the next.
As this energy can be intense, we have to be mindful of not allowing ourselves to become controlling, aggressive, hostile, or acting with our ego in the lead.
We have to remember to shift our awareness from the small Scorpion to the rising Phoenix. We have to remember to keep transcending our awareness of what life is and what role we are here to play.
This New Moon asks that we allow ourselves to keep dying and being reborn in this way. We keep questioning, we keep growing, and we keep allowing things to shock and surprise us, for they are often the fuel for our continued growth.
