We’re officially in bed with the Scorpion now.
Scorpio is the sign of all that goes on behind the curtain and in the dark. The secrets, the lies, the passion, the ritual, the clandestine.
And the mystic.
The Sabian symbol for the New Moon degree at 19 Scorpio is A WOMAN DRAWS AWAY TWO DARK CURTAINS CLOSING THE ENTRANCE TO A SACRED PATHWAY.
Scorpio likes the dark. But with today’s New Moon exact at 12:47pm EST, there’s an urgent need to turn the light on what we’ve been avoiding around our pain, shame and resentments. Our intuition can be that light.
On Monday, the Scorpio Sun illuminated Chiron in Pisces, representing our soul wounds and those of the collective. Today, the Scorpio Moon joins this trine aspect, so the opportunity for a moment of healing what feels deep and ancient is possible (as it happens, to day is Veteran’s Day in the US and Remembrance Day in many other countries). The symbol mentions a “sacred pathway” being revealed. Our soul wounds are sacred, as is our attempts at healing them. [Reminder, my limited-time Chiron healing package special offer ends tomorrow, Nov 12]
Scorpio is private, mostly because they’re obsessed with control, either real or perceived. This may be an uncomfortable time for Scorpios because much of what they hold dear in the way of secrets, resentments and devotion is being challenged.
Astrologer Michele Adler’s research on 19 degrees of the Scorpio/Taurus axis reveals the theme of “that which can no longer be ignored”.
Mars, the traditional ruler of Scorpio is currently at the last degree of demanding Virgo and applying to the lunar North Node of Destiny, so there’s a sense of urgency toward what must be addressed. With messenger Mercury approaching the New Moon, this likely involves a conversation or an awareness that’s long overdue.
Venus in her rulership of Libra might just be the saving grace to achieve balance and harmony. Whether that means reconcile or separate, it’s likely the feeling is mutual. The important thing is to clarify assumptions.
Today’s November 11 (11-11) New Moon carries with it the psychic energy of the powerful vibration of ‘1’, a master number. This is an especially potent day for ritual, intention setting and awareness of signs from the Universe.
Ultimately, New Moons are fertile ground to plant seeds of our future intentions. This Scorpio New Moon wants you to do a bit of weeding first in order for the soil to be rich and fertile for your deepest desires to be optimally nourished. Think of it as enhancing your alignment to your truth and purpose.
Join me today at 11:11am EST for a very special #passthelight Periscope at @radiantastro. I’ll be joined by my sister mystics as we celebrate the powerful 11:11 energy and the Diwali festival of abundance by sharing our prosperity rituals.
Wishing you an illuminating and prosperous Scorpio New Moon!
