Tomorrow, November 13th, is the New Moon in Scorpio.
The key moon phases (full moon, new moon) provide the perfect atmosphere for facilitating and enhancing shifts, changes and new opportunities in life. Ritual work, be it simple and swift or elaborate and dedicated, can catalyze the process of life improvement. Taking time-out to focus on a goal, refine direction or just clarify intention causes a trajectory shift that will always land us in a different place than we will find ourselves if we do not pause to enact our deep desires.
Moon rituals can look like fires, candles, herbs, oils and swords if that's our style. They can also look like closet clearing, frank discussions, completed to-do lists, software upgrades and purged piles of papers. The way in which we personally like to focus on our priorities is not of concern as much as is the importance of taking time to direct our energy. Wherever our energy is in the New Moon phase is the priority level from which we will create for the next lunar cycle. So, choose a subject, any subject, and play along with me as we change the world, one enchantment at a time.
Each month, the moon is in a different astrological aspect and will take on a unique focus based on this alignment. This New Moon in Scorpio is about surrendering to deep healing and purging the toxic from life. Shifts can cause healing at the soul level and may also involve healing of sexual issues or concerns. Scorpio energy can be intense, which might be intimidating. Yet work done under the influence of this sign can cause deep transformational shifts and allow us to finally cast off our demons and take on a new, lighter approach to life.
Have the courage to evaluate and release what needs to go in order to grow. Whether it is complete or not, it's time to release those things that do not serve. You know what they are: you feel tired when you see the pile, you are frustrated when you start working on it, you avoid getting to it even though you know it is necessary, you take twice as long getting it done because you've neglected it for so long that it doesn't work right anymore... you know the routine. And you know that it's just not working for you anymore. Stop spinning your wheels. Fix it. Delegate it. Dump it.
Honor the primal energy of creation. Whether your passion wants to flow through you sexually, artistically, meditatively or productively, engage with full intensity and with full focus. There is a great force of support for that which we want to achieve so take advantage of it with a full-bodied embrace of the process.
Embody the 'whatever it takes' attitude. If you want it, go for it. Know where you are going. Map your journey. Enlist a team of supporters. Deepen partnerships. Open your heart to be the person you need to be in order to deliver yourself to this state of being.
Fun rituals to try out during the new moon:
Build a collage with images of what you're creating. Use visuals that are charged with your personal power and eminate the completion of your heart-felt goals.
Soak in a healing bath of lavender in order to release obstacles, limitations and the heaviness that gets in the way of progress. During the bath, envision this release and then draw in what you will attract to take the place of this burdon.
Burn away the heaviness by writing the issue or worry on a stick or paper, throwing it into a fire and casting the problem into the darkness. Replace the issue with ideas of what you have successfully completed and what successes in this future this change will sustain.
Whatever method you choose to take on for the New Moon in Scorpio, choose something. Refine something. Eliminate something/someone. Improve something. Complete something. Just take an active role in the life you are creating. You will feel both relief and happiness for freeing up the space to a more fun and easeful future.
