Into the watery depths we go with the third and final Super New Moon of the year. Falling in the sign of Scorpio on November 14-15, this New Moon is going to be deeply emotional but also deeply healing.
Whatever needs to come to the surface, especially on an emotional level is going to be stirred within us. We are going to feel the rainbow of emotions that make us human. The rainbow of emotions that in many ways, are our birthright.
We come to this planet to feel. We come into these bodies for a human journey in order to experience the array of emotions that are possible. It is through these emotions that art is created, that truths are revealed, that awakenings happen, and that love can bloom.
Under the dark night of the Scorpio New Moon, we are being guided to sit with ourselves and all of our emotions.
We are being guided to allow the deepest of fears, loves, hopes, and dreams, to rise up from the pit of our belly, up and out into a new space of awareness.
It is our duty to sit with our thoughts and feelings as they arise, from a place of non-judgment. It is our job to recognize that we are not our feelings or our thoughts, we are the ones experiencing them.
Lean into that idea a little longer – you are not your emotions, you are simply the one that is experiencing them.
Your emotions, your thoughts, your story, are not who you are. They are simply the cloak that you wear as you travel from room to room on this journey called life.
As we enter the darker depths of the murky Scorpio waters, it may not feel comfortable, but it is indeed, necessary.
Sometimes we have to do what is uncomfortable, sometimes we have to face whatever is lurking within the shadows of our own fears and doubts. For when we do, we gain so much.
In those moments of wading through what is uncomfortable; when we realize and see fully and wholly our greatest pains, we gain a strength and a wisdom.
This strength, this wisdom is something that only comes when we have found the courage and determination to face up to our greatest wounds and struggles.
The healing is never complete from the darkness, it is something we carry with us on this journey home. But, when we look at it, when we face it, when we hold it and acknowledge it, that is when we can start to rise above it.
Scorpio is represented by the Scorpion but also the Phoenix. Both the Scorpion and the Phoenix have the same ability to transform. The Scorpion sheds its skin, the Phoenix learns how to rise from the ashes.
Both of these creatures hold within them the power to completely rebirth themselves, no matter what the past has brought their way.
The past has brought so much our way. We are all facing our own struggles, fear, uncertainty, and instability. 2020 has changed so many things.
But under the message of this Moon, we are reminded that it is always within our strength and power to rise again when the time is right.
We are reminded that even when things burn to ashes and crumble around us, even when things in our lives are shedding and we can’t recognize ourselves in the mirror, that this is all part of the great cycle of death and rebirth.
We die and we are reborn so many times on this life journey, so allow this New Moon to show you the way through your own metamorphosis.
Allow it to remind you how far you have become. Allow it to give you hope for the opportunities that are to come.
While this New Moon carries some deep and sobering energy, it is also beautifully aspected with the planet Jupiter.
Jupiter is known for allowing us to see the silver lining in things. It shines rays of hope and positivity our way.
It allows us to hold the sunshine within our heart and to remember that there is always a higher plan unfolding.
Jupiter gives us the ability to see things from a wider perspective. Its energy allows us to break free of our limitations and fixed mindset, and to soar above it all where we can see how every action and every event is always leading us to where we need to be.
Even if we can’t see the full journey, or understand the full extent of what is happening around us, there is energy on offer under this New Moon that beckons us to remember that things are always changing and transforming, and while we may not have control over it all, we do have control over how we choose to show up, react, and respond.
So, as you sit with any heavy or fragile emotions that are stirred. As you sit with all you are feeling and try to bring acceptance, remember- this too shall pass.
Try to focus on that which you can control, and keep your vision set to a bird’s eye perspective. Try to see beyond the fixed limitations of today, and try to imagine where it can lead us tomorrow and for the future.
When we detach and zoom out, we can see that everything has its rightful place in this Universe.
