New Moon in Scorpio
October 30th, 2016
Note: A New Moon can work powerful manifestation magic because the Moon is furthest from the earth. freeing the imagination from material limits. Thought-seeds planted at the New Moon will grow, so be careful what you wish for! Here's my New Moon Report for October 30th 2016, in Scorpio.
Where does the mystery live within your life? What must be summoned upward in order that the underlying and murky essence of doubt, manipulation, shadow, judgment, shame, guilt, and other such maladies may be filled with light? The New Moon heralds a time to celebrate the transformational work of the soul, especially those choosing to live according to within a 'Self Aware Universe,' Such hearty troopers are sturdy, courageous, and empowered.The opportunity offers a multidimensional reverie of grace...a time of reckoning deep Healing Forces and Self Empowerment.
It's tempting to view a New Moon in Scorpio through a projected lens of Shadowy connotation. Indeed, the opportunity to meet the dark is real, and its force allows us the terrain needed to feel the way through trickery, deceit, and the uncomfortable aspects of life that metaphorically 'go bump in the night.' This can be a good thing, and we mustn't mismanage the formidable opportunity this new moon offers. Anything and almost everything that has been lying low and under the surface has become fertile ground for adaptation and change. Transformation is very real; especially when the Soul decides upon its reckoning.
Moon In Scorpio (sun and moon) trines transiting Neptune. The next two weeks amps up intuitive sensibilities. Listen deeply and pay attention to subtle forces. The sublime is a work, and if you wish, you may be a part of its Divinity. Mercury conjuncts the New Moon and the sun, and thereby, also trines Neptune. Mindfulness (Mercury) and the Soul (Neptune) release tightly bound concepts of how we perceive dark and light, right and wrong, love and power. Surrender becomes palpable as the collective chooses to trust in Higher Power, Guidance, and Sacred Trust. And, it goes without saying that the commitments and values we honor within heart and soul must remain in tact.
The New Moon chart has a Saturn/Venus conjunction in Sagittarius. The arrow of the Heart is in the air, and we wonder where it will land? Let's gaze at our opportunity to willingly surrender to soaring Love; airborne and in flight, imminently ready for New Beginnings. We look ahead, seek future resolution, and prepare for a month of relationship mending.
The recent Uranus/Mars jarred our hopes, perhaps a little, yet enough to unsettle many of us. Unexpected and unprecedented situations have surfaced, yet in spite of angst, a little voice in my heart says: Be at Peace.
We can glean inspiration offered by 8 degrees of Scorpio, the New Moon's Sabian Symbol, written by Dane Rudhyar,

Keynote: A quiet openness to higher inspiration
He writes: "What is implied here is a surrender of two personal egos to the inspirations of transcendent feelings which are essentially impersonal. Love expresses itself through the lovers; however, real Love is a cosmic undifferentiated principle power which simply focuses itself within the 'souls' of human beings who reflect its light." It's essence reveals that beyond all efforts lies the need for peace and the readiness to accept the illumination from above.
Keyword: Quiescence, characterized by an absence of upheaval or discord.
The New Moon influences the collective through November 14th, when a Full Moon in Taurus, ruled by Venus, nurtures seeds of surrender, bringing them to light.
Take extra good care of yourself... listen, pray, dream, and summon the faith it takes to trust the intuitive guidance of your heart.
From my heart to yours,
