The Scorpio New Moon trines Neptune in Pisces. This is a time when deep emotions and or deep spiritual connection can be activated. And particularly strong for those with Scorpio or Pisces at 7 degrees in your Natal chart. Watch your emotions, especially if the elections didn’t go your way. Stay calm as no amount of anger alone will make the changes desired. You must use the anger to move you to positive action.

Remember, the Scorpio New Moon naturally homes in on typical Scorpio themes, such as the deeper and passionate experience of feelings, good and bad. We may relish the highs and then sink to the lows on life’s roller-coaster ride! But the intensity of feeling will be significant, possibly in a way that we remember for a long time to come. We might be motivated to write about what has happened, or to create an artwork that expresses the feelings surrounding events.

We cannot talk about Scorpio without mentioning its modern rulership by Pluto — a planet that the Sun and Moon happen to sextile during this lunation. Power struggles may be resolved, then, since the sextile often represents an opportunity. With Pluto, it is easy to either feel overpowered or sense that our energy is too strong for the situation we’re in or the people we’re around. Issues of acceptability may have reared up in the past. But under newer conditions, these may evaporate. So much becomes easier to handle if we remember to put self-acceptance in the pole position, too, allowing any approval from others to be only a bonus.

With Pluto in Capricorn and Mars in Aquarius, a Saturnian presence lingers in the background. The power and needs of the collective remain paramount, requiring a certain amount of careful discipline and self-alignment. We do not really want to step on anyone else’s toes under this lunation, if we can help it. We may also get a stronger glimpse into the importance of our role towards the greater good. Activities that fall within Saturn’s realm include forming an orderly queue. Since Mars in Aquarius is configured with Venus and Ceres, we can be sure that individual desires will be dealt with — but we must wait our turn. We might make more effort to connect with our fellows as we do so, passing the time, easing tension, or just being neighborly!

PLAN YOUR OWN NEW MOON CEREMONY. Give yourself some quiet time in meditation to see where you need to seed new ways of becoming. List these areas within your life you want to change. What areas do you want to break free from the norm and become more productive and discerning? The NEW MOON is the time to manifest the personal attributes you want to cultivate as well as the tangible things you want to bring to you. Possible phrasing: I now manifest ____ into my life. I am now _______ . Remember, think, envision and feel with as much emotion as possible, as though you already have what you want. Thoughts are things and the brain manifests exactly what you show it in the form of thoughts, visuals and emotions. The Buddha said, and I am paraphrasing, “We are the sum total of our thoughts up to today. ” If we want to be different then we must change our thoughts. “If you always do what you’ve always done then you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” CONSCIOUS CHANGE is the key.
