Happy New Moon in Scorpio!
This particular New Moon has overtones of releasing emotional & physical clutter as Scorpio is so skilled at doing, but also of honoring our unique strengths & focusing them down into a powerful laser beam of potent energy.
With eccentric Aquarius rising at the time of the New Moon, our outward vision is focused through the lens of visionary Aquarius.
Are you being authentic or are you conforming to the crowd? Are you playing it safe? Aquarius holds the freedom to be exactly who they are at the top of their priority list. When Aquarius finds themselves going along to get along, life loses its meaning. They become robotic in their everyday responses, losing their sense of inspired idealism. This is what we’re eliminating under this New Moon.
The time has arrived to let go of the soul numbing conformity and align deeply with your passion as shown by Scorpio while allowing Virgo to push us to work quietly and diligently to attain our vision.
Uranus, Aquarius’s ruler is in innovative & courageous Aries where he’s been since 2011 creating youth driven revolutions around the world, breaking up old paradigms and infusing the world with fresh inspired vision for the future.. Presently Uranus is retrograde (appearing backwards in the sky) meaning his revolutionary energy is turned inward where its compressing while building momentum, clarity & strength. Remember energy doesn’t always need to be seen in order to be felt.
Look to your natal chart to see where Uranus is currently sitting & demanding changes to be made. He’s the focus point for this New Moon as he not only commands the chart, but also creates the apex behind the Finger of Fate (Yod) in the sky with the Sun and Moon in passionate Scorpio sextile to Jupiter in discriminating Virgo.
What is a Yod or Finger of Fate/God?
The Finger of Fate is a astrological configuration usually between 3 or more planets that looks like an isosceles triangle. At the base of the triangle are two sets of planets creating what we call a sextile or a flowing or easy aspect consisting of 60° between the two sets of planets.
Sextiles create ease of communication between planets. They have a certain aptitude in working together, between them lies skill and opportunity.
Joining the sextile is an aspect called a quincunx which connects to the sextile by 150°. A quincunx is not quite as conflicted in energy as say a direct opposition or a square, instead it creates irritation and friction. It nags at us just enough to spurn us into action.
Together this configuration allows for the easy flow of skilled energy in the sky to be motivated and focused down into a point, to take fated action. Here we take advantage of our skills and put it to work to move us along our fated path.
Making The New Moon Work For You
So what are you moved to take action on now that you’ve cleaned out your emotional closets? What fear has Scorpio presented to you that you are now ready to release and move forward toward your destiny?
Scorpio asks us to align with our passion, here we connect with our deeper more potent emotions to find our way in the dark. What fills us with fear is also what can fill us with joy. Typically it is our fear that shows us where our work is to be done, there lies our joy underneath the rubble. Virgo shows us our ability to be dedicated to our work. We’re willing to dig in and stick with something until we refine it to its purest state of being.
This New Moon is asking us to align with and work with our passion, cultivate our skills and shoot it down to Uranus who will use the energy to break new ground in our lives. Be willing to stand in your unique and seemingly unusual way of living and being… its what makes you, you. The work that you’re passionate about is the work that you came down here to do.
Look to your Scorpio, Virgo, Aries and Aquarius houses to see where your fate is taking you. Planets and angles at and around 19° will be activated by this energy, they too will shed light on your way forward.
Transformative Pluto in Capricorn and Mars in diligent Virgo are sending earthy support to the Sun-Moon connection in Scorpio. Pluto will help add a healthy dose of authority & power to your backbone. Be a boss about your vision and the work you seek to do. Who else is going to do it if not you? Mars in Virgo will fuel you to keep working, creating to do lists, planning, refining, and editing. Take advantage of Mars while he’s focused in Virgo, he moves into diplomatic & indecisive Libra on November 12th at 4:40pm EST
