November 11, 2015 the Moon is dark in the sign of Scorpio. The New Moon, the beginning of a new lunar cycle, when we wake up to something new, something that is asking for expression. We can’t see the New Moon, just as we can’t fully see the entirety of a new path, idea, or long held desire. That’s the beauty, the unknowing. Yet, we venture forward into the dark where we create and bring something to life.
Scorpio is water and full of intense feelings. As we consider this cycle while in Scorpio we are asked to look into our own shadow, to face the fears, old wounds, and memories that may get in the way of us being able to begin. To take that first step. What are your fears? In saying this phrase to yourself….”I want to…but…” acknowledge what comes up, and in what area of life. This is the time to dig deep and begin the healing process.
Mercury is in a conjunction with the Moon and part of this energy. Mercury is the messenger focused on communication, thought, and perception. Mercury in Scorpio drives the thought process deep, peeling away the layers as it searches for the truth. This can be a time of important, honest dialogue with yourself, and others to bring to light old and well-worn patterns that need to be understood, so that in time they can be released. Be aware of the potential of becoming stuck and not seeing anything other than old hurts and memories. Remember that life is fluid and change is always occurring on some level. It is possible with awareness and intention, and with the help and support of trusted friends to transform how we think about things; to choose a new and more life affirming inner voice.
Scorpios and those with personal planets in the sign of Scorpio will feel this Moon more intensely.
