The moon is new in Scorpio on October 27 (10:38 pm). The screw turns another rotation down the thread, reiterating a theme that occurred in early August. A break in the pattern or a change in rhythm is indicated by this new moon. Rebel archetypes don’t care to follow standard traditions with Venus in Scorpio and Mars in Libra.
Venus embodies the attraction principal, but when she’s in Scorpio it goes deeper than surface beauty and social niceties. A curious magnetism gravitating toward mystery depicts Venus in Scorpio, such as a ghost wife or zombie bride! Mars is the fighter and warrior archetype. When he’s in Libra, he isn’t hotly direct and forceful but instead dispassionately responsive. A transformative edge runs beneath the undercurrents of this new moon, as relationship dynamics come up to the surface for review.
The mood is highly celebratory October 31, yet hibernation mode begins shortly after! Samhain and Halloween mark Mercury beginning it’s retrograde in Scorpio (10:42 am) that lasts until November 20. As per usual this time of year, the veil between worlds becomes thin and gets even thinner yet when Mercury appears to rewind. Introspection leads to reflections that reveal buried treasures. Occult mysteries become glamorized! Spectres might pay a visit, what is it they have to say?
To tap into the power of transformation flowing through the air, light some of Shoyeido’s Diamond incense.
