We are living in powerful evolutionary times. You are alive at this time because you were born to be part of creating our world anew. We are all participating on some level, even if just with our prayers and heartfelt intentions. This New Moon focuses our attention on the evolutionary powers of Scorpio. Within the parameters of its expression are the darkest of the dark and the opposite, the most unconditional love and light.
You may feel some depression during this Moon or thoughts and emotions that make you feel uncomfortable. You may even experience a crisis situation that forces you to look inside at your own shadow for answers and a new and more evolved way of looking at things. Scorpio energy deals with alchemy, which is the process of transmuting one’s darkness.
As we watch the upheaval on our planet, and the day to day exposure of the corruption and darkness, it represents the larger view of what we must work with on an internal level. We are all one, one with the earth and all of its inhabitance, human and fauna. We are indeed at a pivotal time of polarization which must soon resolve itself if we are to continue to exist. This is also the nature and purview of Scorpio; the death of the old and the birth of the new. We use the understanding of the darkness to find the gift for a better world. Creator always provides the way forward. This is the cycle of life and death merging together to create a better world.
Our elections here in the US are taking place on November 8th, for better or for worse, during this Scorpio cycle. On November 6th daylight savings ends. On October 31, we celebrate Halloween, an observance of older, deeper and more serious observances dating back to the time when everyone was close to the Earth and familiar with the night sky. These next couple of weeks represents a confluence of a multiplicity of natural and man made happenings taking place during Scorpio’s plutonic energetic cycle of change.
There is other planetary movement of note. Mercurymoved into Scorpio on the 25th calling attention to the seeping underbelly being exposed and Venus and Saturnare exactly conjunct in Sagittarius at 14 degrees on this New Moon, bringing the value of fairness and justice within our government to the forefront during this election and evolutionary cycle. Even the animals are feeling the significance of what is happening in this regard as thousands of buffalo showed up at the site where our Native American brothers and sisters are in peaceful protest for the protection of their water. There struggle is only a symptom of much larger global problems facing our planet, its resources and its inhabitance.
Your prayers and love energy are needed in large measure during this chaotic time. Often things have to get really ugly before we stand up and be counted for love and unity. Courage take and do what you can to bless the lives of others and our Mother earth.

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.
