New Moon in Scorpio Moon Wisdom
"Start your Engines, Babe!"
Let's talk about how lushly exciting this new moon is. This weekend, on Saturday night we experience the New Moon in Scorpio at 9:07PM Pacific. I love new moons in scorpio because they bring a watery, deep-magic vibe I can't help but appreciate. All year we've been in a washer cycle, clearing up our values and beliefs so that we are living in alignment with the high minded ideals we've always preached.
Personally, I think it has been a beautiful year, although filled with unprecedented growth. So now what?
Now, we move forward. We keep growing, but we also move forward. This moon may still show you where you have secrets that need to be cleared out of the closet, but if you're in right alignment, it becomes motivational rather than stressful. With Mars finally stationing direct this weekend in Aries, and Mercury having come out of its last retrograde this year, the intangible energies will be pushing gently at your back, urging you to consider what it looks like to move forward.
THE RELEASE OF THE LINEAR & THE RISE OF YOUR INNER GOD
We are now in the dark season, but the intuitive nature of the scorpio new moon reminds you to listen into the light you carry within you, to illuminate your path. The way forward isn't linear. You're entering a new era where simple facts no longer rule the day. Our collective human agreement to see the world through one lens has been forever altered, so we are now seeing earthly experiences through increased emotional subjectivity. It's now time to cultivate your emotional intelligence in new ways.
ASTRAL BODY DISCERNMENT
Learn to discern between when you're making decisions based on your hidden fears, or "shoulds," or whether you're making decisions based on a sense of total right alignment, softness, and opening in your heart.
Do you listen to that soul-place within you? Do you know where it is, in your body and spirit? If you have never connected to this place, now is the time to start, because this EQ skill will make the difference between whether you are successfully able to break with old paradigms this year, or whether your attachment to ego and control create pain and suffering in your creative life process throughout the birthing process of this winter.
In the old paradigm, all we had to do was follow and trust the rules of society to be safe and well-fed. In the new paradigm, we are reconnected to the importance of doing all things in alignment with our soul truths, before we opt into social agreements. Moving in this way, we can reshape society to have the infrastructure and support needed for all beings to thrive, on the microcosmic and macrocosmic level.
HOW TO WORK WITH THIS MOON
The cycles of the moon are always touch points we can return to, in order to check in with how well our physical life experience is lining up with our inner world. Dark moons, when there is no light in the sky, are perfect for releasing. The dark moon that comes on November Friday 13th and the following Saturday, is a perfect window for releasing your old paradigm ways of moving. Who have you made yourself small for? What are you clinging to, because you feel you should, or because you are afraid? Now you can release all of these as old stories, choosing instead to tend to your emotional fears so that they no longer block you from greatness.
As the new moon brings fresh slivers of light in, set vibrational intentions. You may not have total clarity yet about what needs to happen in your life, but this moon isn't about ego directives anyway. Set those vibrational intentions using emotions. Feel the feeling of how you want to live, what you want to attract, and who you want to be. Live from that place beginning Sunday.
Here in Santa Rosa I'm hosting a New Moon ceremony with singing bowls, to help unlock and release your vibrational brilliance on a soul level at this critical juncture. For me it's not only beautiful community work, but it's the great work of my soul, tending to and cherishing people I appreciate and am inspired by. If you need support in your crafting, you can join us! Otherwise, think about what action you need to take that can help you set vibrational intention.
ORGANIC GROWTH REPLACES CONTROL
During this sacred time, acknowledge that you have transformed so much this year. Look at everything you've faced, and how strong you really are. You are safe to release control over every single detail of your future. Instead of trying to force the future to come, let your self-discipline pour into staying extremely present with the feeling and actions sacredness in crafting your life:
+ What friends do you want to love, value, and appreciate?
+ What is the work that lights up your heart?
+ What is the immediate, present-moment truth about what you need to do for physical well-being? What about survival well being? And spiritual well-being?
There's no rush in answering these questions. Instead, they are all a part of your inner meditation, helping the inner truths that you can't yet see with clarity, to rise to the surface.
YOU ARE HELD IN THE GATEWAY TO CONSOLIDATE YOUR POWER
I see these two months of November & December as holding us in a warm swaddle while we consolidate our power as newborns, preparing to create a new age of emotionally informed thought and intelligence in the 21st century.
Right now, you are consolidating your power, and the universe is feeding you a steady flow of reminders and teachings about your true self, and your true inheritance, which is: effortless abundance, a birthright of miracles, and grace in transforming all of the lead in your life, into gold.
