New Moon with partial Solar Eclipse
As a Scorpio I get really excited this time of year. I love Scorpio energy. It's something I was born with, a place I have lived in but only recently have I begun to have a deeper understanding and awareness of. To me it is some of the most magical energy we all have. Scorpio energy is all about the extremes of life, it is about life and death, rebirth, sex, transformation, truth... it is very intense energy and also profoundly intuitive. I believe that it is the energy that connects you to your soul, and the power that can be sourced from that place.
For some people it is too much, too dark, and might be threatening. And I understand why. It is energy that uncovers your shadow. It brings all that stuff up that you don't want to face. It shows you truths you may not want to see. And at times it can be intense, relentless, and really painful. There is no coming to consciousness with out pain. You can not hide these truths or wish them away. You must dive deeper into them, bring them up to the surface, to the light. Call them out. What makes Scorpio energy so magical is that it is energy that has the power of transformation. In that place of darkness is the power to transform it. With out this shadow part of ourselves we are not whole. Repressing our dark and our shadow only makes it stronger. It's when we can finally look at those things in ourselves and accept them that we have the power to transform and integrate them. By doing this we shift the shadow and it is no longer a place we come from unconsciously, but it becomes a powerful place within us that we can source from.
I think about the ancient symbol of the ouroboros, the snake eating it's own tail. This symbol is similar to the phoenix rising from the ashes. It symbolises the constant transformation we go through during our life. The infinite cycle of death and rebirth that happens over and over in us. That is how we evolve. And, to me, there is nothing more beautiful.
Though it might be a time of intensity, we seem to be held by an energy right now that is really nurturing. Scorpio is a water sign that invites us to go within, to be with ourselves and our feelings. It can be a time of solitude, but right now there is a feeling of connection to something greater. It will be the thing that will allow us to dive even deeper into the bottom of the ocean and not feel like we will get lost there.
It is a great time to go within, take a hike by yourself at dusk, meditate, take a night walk, sit in your garden at night... any activity where you can sit with your self and be in nature is wonderful right now. I think that actually being in the darkness of the night can be a supportive guide to go deeper within. Ask yourself some hard questions. Don't be afraid. Ask for support and guidance in revealing something in you that you haven't had the courage to face. And ask for the wisdom and power to transform it. Scorpio energy is also deeply intuitive, during this time ask the Moon to help you strengthen your connection to your own intuition.
And make your New Moon wishes, you are allowed ten wishes maximum and they must be hand written on paper. The most potent time for wishing is 24 hours with in the exact time of the New Moon, but with in the first 48 hours will do. Because this New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio it is a great time to wish about anything that involves transformation, power, strength, courage, integrity, jealously, or questions or desires around the truth.
