This New Moon is in Scorpio meeting up with the Sun and Mercury and has quite a story to tell. As the Moon will be at 19 degrees Scorpio, many other Planets are also around that degree making for some interesting interactions. If we look solely at Scorpio for a moment, we may find ourselves thinking about sex as we may have come across that stereotype at one point in our lives. The essence of Scorpio may play out to have a strong sexual appetite, but there is a lot more at play. Scorpio lives in the watery, emotional and psychological caverns of reality. Not impressed with surface level understandings, they want to dig into the dirt, the grit, the layer below that which seems obvious. Compelled to seek the raw truth and grasp an understanding of the core workings of life’s existence, this sign is not for the faint of heart. Fueled by the limits of human existence, riding the edges of the shadow realm, we find issues such as immortality, the deep subconscious, and the dramatic intensity of human relationships. When looking at the real motivations and propensities of human existence and what is driving the chariot, we start to expose the layers of the onion which enthrall the Scorpion. As the Sun is in Scorpio every Fall in the Northern Hemisphere, we see a beautiful and intense color display as many foliage is having their “last hurrah” before falling to their death, unable to absorb the sun’s life energy when they were filled with green chlorophyll. If we are in the Southern Hemisphere, the Season of Spring is emerging and we find the dramatic blooming and birthing of life. This cycle of death and eventual rebirth mirrors the Scorpio experience. In this New Moon, we are invited to delve into our shadows- the raw and intensely beautiful aspects of being a human energy filled with light and shadows, and a soul essence. In this exploration, we come into contact with our own power and also where we must surrender to the limitations of our power. As the Moon contacts Chiron, we find messages relating to our wounding that we can transform into healing, resulting in a place of strength and service to others. As Jupiter stimulates this Moon to keep with routine and to take the necessary steps to analyze the dark details, we may find that walking through the darkness brings humility and leads to renewal. Pluto, the Ruler of Scorpio is also encouraging us to have the fortitude and discipline to transform our lives by releasing that which does not serve our greatest good and may have become hardened or calcified. To add some fire to the equation comes Uranus who makes us feel just a tad bit irritated or uncomfortable in order to help us to muster up the courage to claim ourselves, to claim our birthright. In this time, we can walk into the dark night of the soul to heal, forgive, release, and re-emerge whole beings embracing the dark and the light of our humanity.
