This Scorpio New Moon on 11th November 2015 is a watery moon that sparks our passion. Ruled by Pluto, the planet of hidden wisdom and transformation, Scorpio brings to the surface our deep inner fears and feelings about who we are, and why we are here on this planet.
It opens up hidden wounds that need healing by igniting our desire for intimacy and connection. It can therefore be a challenging, emotional moon as the status quo gets rocked, and we have to face reality as it is.
Over this dark moon, rather than get paralysed by Scorpio’s sting, see it as an opportunity for change and use it to fuel you to do things differently in the future.
Here are my top 7 tips to help you surf this Scorpio new moon:
Ignite your Passion
The Scorpio moon ignites our deep inner passions and desires, and brings to the surface what is lacking in our lives.
It is the moon to take a good honest look at what is working, and what is not working in your love life. When we face our issues rather than burying them deep within, we can find the solutions.
Find out what emotional needs are not being met and use this new moon to fuel you to make the changes you need to bring more peace and harmony back into your life.
Beware the Sting
People often show their true colours over a Scorpio new moon, as our deep desires come to the surface.
The truth has to come out eventually and very often it can be over a Scorpio new moon, when we are being fuelled by our passion. The best way of coping with Scorpio’s sting is to not take it personally, and see it as a message that something in your life needs to change.
Beware not to get too caught up in the watery depths of blame and anger, as you could find yourself drowning in a wave of emotion. Take your power back by focusing on you and your needs.
Focus on your goals
The easiest way to focus on your needs is to focus on the future and your own goals and passions. What needs to get done between now and the end of the year? Where do you want to be a year from now?
Prioritise your needs and desires by getting action orientated. Write a to do list, get out in nature and hug a tree, do some yoga, connect with friends, especially if you have been a bit of a hermit recently. This will help to take you out of your mind, especially if it is ruminating over things that you can’t change, or you are feeling stuck and in a rut.
Listen to your Intuition
Listen to your intuition, which is especially strong and forceful over this moon. What is it prompting you to do? Where is it telling you to go? Who is it telling you to contact?
Our intuition is our inner wisdom that is tuned up to the collective unconscious. It is the part of ourselves that knows how to achieve our dreams and visions, all we need to do is listen to it, and trust it, by trusting ourselves.
Take off the Armour
Over this moon, see if you can take off any armour that you may be wearing. We are all carrying around protection to stop us from being hurt but when we do this we also block out the magic.
When we can let go of the cynicism and become more vulnerable to life, we become more aware of the magic that is happening at every moment. When we take off our armour and believe that life wants us to thrive and flourish, we start to see how everything is happening perfectly and just how wonderful life can be.
Over this new moon, use the Scorpio energy to trust your inner voice and let the magic in.
Loving our Shadow
Once we can acknowledge our own shadow side, our own dark behavious and actions, we can begin to forgive and find compassion for others.
When we take personal responsibility for our lives, we get back in the driving seat. We no longer stay a victim of others by acknowedging the part we play in any challenging situation.
When we accept that we have created everything in our lives, by the choices we have made, we can step back from the situation, see it from a more realistic perspective and be able to make more conscious choices.
When we face our shadow we are able to see what actions and behaviours contributed to the drama and from this place choose a different way to move forward.
Face your Fear
The easiest way of moving forward is to face the fear of being YOU. When we accept ourselves for who we truly are we are no longer crippled by fear and become truly liberated.
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words from Rosa Parks:
“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.”
