Scorpio teaches us that desire is worth considering. New Moon is traditionally a time to dive deep into the unconscious, discover your secret desires, and tap into the emotional energy you need to manifest as the moon waxes.

New Moon in Scorpio gives voice to Desire and calls us to take a deeper look and release what has been holding us back, or those things which we have held back or tamped down. We confront our fears here, so this isn’t just about naughty pleasure. This is where we touch the subconscious and either reveal hidden treasure or fall into darkness until we open our inner eye to see what we’ve avoided.
There is a good deal of energy available to use as fuel, if we accept our whole selves, strip away false doubts and limiting beliefs imposed from outside to reveal truth and use wisdom instead of whim to guide our paths. Thus, Scorpio is the sign of transformation, generation and sex or fertility.
Use journaling, meditation and set your intention for change and growth. Sure, you can do this at any time, but it’s even better when you can align with the moon and the rhythms of the universe.
Just a few days after New Moon, Samhain and the Celtic New Year arrive. This is the time when tradition teaches us that the veils are thin and our ancestors and other spirits come close. This bodes well for tremendously deep delvings in divination or meditative work, as well as an opportunity to let go of old patterns and create new ones.
We also get bonus energy points under this new moon: Venus and Mars are also in Scorpio so it’s a great time to plant seeds, ideas, anything which can bring out abundance of any shape or form. In fact, Jupiter is trine Pluto, and investments of energy, words or just about anything will have added influence and ripple affects. Use your words wisely and drop blessings abundantly!
