Scorpio New Moon – October 27-28, 2019
Today’s New Moon in Scorpio is exact at 04 degrees, 24 minutes of Scorpio, at 8:38 pm PDT and at 3:38 am GMT tomorrow on October 28, 2019. It’s that time of year again – a time of reckoning with and reconciling what’s come through this year. There’s a lot of tension in the air. There’s a strain at the seams, a chomping on the bit, and a feeling that the center might not hold long enough to get us to New Year’s Eve. Just remember; it’s all about where you put your attention, who you choose to connect with, and what you feel in the deepest and most secret corners of your being. November and December will be a time of clearing the archaic, inappropriate, and played-out past in favor of the constructive, connected, and accelerated future.
Be deliberate. The New Moon in Scorpio instructs us to close out the old cycle and to concentrate on freeing ourselves from the emotional and intellectual cul-de-sacs and traps we so cleverly designed – oh so long ago. We’ve almost forgotten that we designed and cultivated these environments, disaffections, fears, resentments, anxieties, misalignments, grudges, and difficulties. We must go down into our deepest emotional selves to clear the debris that’s settled into the neglected corners of our being. One last big clean-up and purge! And I would say that we’ve got until the Annular eclipse on December 26th to get this done. It’s good hygiene and good growth. As a snake sheds it’s skin, so must we discard what’s holding us back from our own rebirth. We must be ready to start anew.
Be observant of your own processes. Upgrade your connection to spirit and to the Universe. Be completely open to what MUST be done to finish this clearing. Be aware of your own personal eco-system and of the waters you swim in. Observe your outward and inward surroundings. Make room for what you want – be sure to leave plenty of space for what you want to manifest – even if you’re not sure exactly what that is… That’s ok – you can’t know everything in advance – be open to what will come. Once you do that – the Universe will bring its gifts to you. They might be a little unfamiliar and odd looking… But don’t judge. You said you wanted something personal and unique to you – didn’t you?
Tonight’s New Moon is conjunct the Sun in Scorpio and opposite Uranus in Taurus. Scorpio rules the underworld and is willing to go to hell and back to get to the bottom of whatever mystery or riddle it’s trying to solve. The riches of the earth are hidden beneath the surface. Facing this darkness and our own personal underworld gives us strength, wisdom and spiritual wealth. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with the wild, innovative and revolutionary energy of Uranus in earthy Taurus. Uranus will have quite a lot to say on the subject of what is valuable and what is not. And most likely this information will be presented in an unusual fashion. So keep your eyes and ears open.
Sun, Moon, Venus, Pallas Athena, and Mercury are all in Scorpio in opposition to Uranus the revolutionary and great disruptor. It’s a perfect signature for honesty, revelation, re-creation, re-birth, and even revolution at any and all levels. The dark moon is in the sign of her fall in Scorpio and Venus in Scorpio is in her detriment. However, Venus also sextiles Pluto in Capricorn – which gives her an opportunity to make the best of a potentially bad situation. In other words, she can activate and accomplish the important work of clearing and making way for the power and birth of the new cycle that’s unfolding.
Mars in Libra (not his best placement for sure) squares Saturn at 15 degrees Libra/ Capricorn. Right smack in the middle of their respective placements. The center is often a place where we get stuck. And yet, it ultimately will not hold – as we are seeing and feeling now. What is stalling out in your life? Where are you making excuses for old behaviors exciting and habits? This is not the potentially toxic clutter of the debris in the Scorpio basement – but more a collection of favorite behaviors and comfortable old shoes that really have got to go – More a product of the Cancer North Node really. This is another aspect of the re-formation and re-birth process that we are heading into now.
Trust your feelings. Pay attention. Let your intellect and emotion work together. If they’re not on great speaking terms – it’s time for you to intercede in a MAJOR way. Invest in yourself. Be your own favorite cause for the time being. Get this work done! This is about preparing the way into the new – and I do mean NEW in a very direct and hard-assed way – energies of 2020. Show up 100%. Things are not going to slow down and we are not going back the way we came. EVER. Most of all, be brave. And do the right thing – you know what I mean…
Oh – and P.S. Mercury retrograde in Scorpio on Halloween, October 31. More on that later.
