The Scorpio New Moon occurs late on the 29th/early on the 30th depending upon your time zone. New Moons are widely heralded as times of brand new beginnings, and the sign that the New Moon falls in defines the energies at work as we reboot and begin again. The Scorpio New Moon demands that we find our passion – take a stand. This is not a time for superficiality; under the influence of Scorpio we must dive into the subconscious and unearth our most secret desires.
The planet Mercury, the messenger god, aligns with the Sun and Moon to motivate a greater understanding on the intellectual level. Traditional astrology calls a Sun/Mercury conjunction “combust” and assumes that the Sun weakness the energy of Mercury, but in my experience a Sun/Mercury alignment adds the light of consciousness from the Sun to the mental workings of Mercury to illuminate and add greater insight and awareness. At this time of year the veil that separates the planes of earthly existence from other planes grows thin, and Mercury, in its role of messenger, aids in communication between the worlds.
This New Moon has the potential to release creativity and magic thanks to a lovely trine to dreamy Neptune. Under the realm of Scorpio we can harness emotion in its purest form – raw, instinctive and potent. Neptune encourages us to open our hearts to a more transcendent magic.
This New Moon comes at the time when the veil between worlds is said to be thinnest, at All Hallows Eve, and the astrology is perfect for a powerful shamanic journey.
