New Moons are a time of new beginnings. The Sun and Moon are conjunct in the same sign of the zodiac, at the same degree. October 30th will be the Scorpio New Moon, with both planets at 7 degrees of Scorpio, joined by Mercury, at 8 degrees of Scorpio.
Scorpio has always gotten a bad rap, in my opinion. It is a Water sign, along with Cancer and Pisces. The Water signs are seen as the emotional, feelings oriented signs, with Scorpio being the most intense. Pisces gets the dubious distinction of being the poet and dreamer of the three, ( odd), while Cancer is seen as the nurturer and nester. None of those descriptions resonate for me. I think I’m in a good position to know, given that in my horoscope I have a Pisces Sun, Scorpio Moon, and Uranus in Cancer. A less dreamy, poetic, homemaking individual you are never going to find. Intense? Oh, yeah. Let’s go with that.
This New Moon brings the focus to magic and the mystical, with the Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Scorpio forming a beautiful trine aspect to Neptune in Pisces. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet that is the master alchemist. This New Moon brings us the opportunity for healing through alchemy, while adding the mysticism of Neptune, the planet of visions and love. With Mercury added, the planet of communication, affirmations and intention work are enhanced. Psychic ability is increased.
Venus and Saturn are conjunct at 14 degrees of Sagittarius on the New Moon, forming a wide square aspect to the New Moon, and Neptune. This offers an opportunity to clear some old fears ( Saturn) that are based on illusion ( Neptune). The fearless intensity of Scorpio lends itself to facing and demystifying anything.
This is an intensely magical day, with limitless opportunities for growth and healing. Magic is everywhere, if we only have the eyes to see it. State your intentions to the Universe, and bring your dreams into manifestation. The Water Element in Chinese medicine is the Kidney and Bladder meridians, which asks the question ” what do I trust? What do I have faith in?” Meditate on that, and embark on a new beginning of trust and faith. Trust in the Universe, trust in Source, but most importantly, trust in yourself, and the Divinity that resides within each of us. Release any old fears of your own intensity. Embrace all that you are. Have a wonderful day. Blessings, Judith
