Today’s New Moon greets us at 19 degrees Scorpio. This is a New Moon of great personal power. It’s no secret that Scorpio is often known as the manipulative sign. This New Moon is encouraging us to use our powers in more constructive ways. Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto, governed the underworld in Greek mythology. Pluto creates, destroys, then re-creates; what better way to celebrate this New Moon with a bit of ego destruction and shadow work?
Scorpio was quite the seductress in previous lives, often yearned for and hated by those around them. Often in positions of power, they were not above using their psychic gifts to control those around them. Working on issues surrounding control and power struggles is highly suggested. Writing a list of the things you can control verses the things you cannot can be helpful as well.
The New Moon’s sextile to Jupiter makes the process of transformation a pleasant treat. Scorpio is the psychologist of the Zodiac; our intuitive abilities are at a heightened state. The hypnotic magnetism of this New Moon cannot be denied. Those who practice sex magick can especially benefit from this cunning energy. Focusing on psychic powers, telepathy and dream work are a few activities one can work on during this New Moon.
The dark goddess, Lilith, forms a wide conjunction to Venus; Lilith isn’t interested in being controlled. She owns her own sexuality. She is very much the revolutionary with shamanic and sexual healing powers. Channel this divine feminine energy for your rituals, healing and self-love work. This is the perfect combination for those who feel as though they have lost their power. If this is you, now is the time to reclaim it.
Again, don’t take this New Moon lightly! The Moon is extremely powerful but even more so when she’s in Scorpio.
