New Moon at 20 degrees Scorpio
2:27am mountain time
This NEW MOON at 20 degrees SCORPIO, conjoined by Mars, opposing Uranus can certainly bring up emotional vulnerability and volatility showing up in all sorts of ways. You might feel heightened anxiety, physical symptoms of stress increasing, emotionally reactive. You most likely will feel these intensified emotional responses in the areas of your chart where the New Moon energy is activated.
Scorpionic energies expose what has been suppressed or buried in many places in consciousness, personally and collectively. Shocking events bombarding our systems can trigger deeply hidden emotional responses. To be kind in every way to yourself these days is an absolute must. You are a tender being and you require tender care, like this baby moose gets from his momma moose, standing guard a few feet away.
Dwarf planet Ceres, the no-nonsense Harvest nurturer, the archetype of the post-menopausal woman, no longer tossed about on the seas of hormonal impulses, gets her head on straight, up for the battle, the battle of consciousness raging on the planet these days. Ceres conjoins Mars at this New Moon – the woman warrior who sees the value of LIFE and is willing to do what it takes to honor and sanctify LIFE with life-enhancing, life-supporting decisions and actions. Support LIFE in thought and action. We each can do our part to bring about the world we wish to live in, the world resonating with the NEW vibration of LOVE.
Chiron, the wounded healer, and Eris, asteroid of discord and alienation, conjoin the North Node (destiny) in Mars-ruled Aries. The old ways of conquering, fighting, warring are activated but we each have personal choice as to how we will engage these energies. These same energies can be used for healing, each of us committed to weeding out our own darkness, the places in ourselves where LIGHT is needed.
Saturn moving DIRECT at zero degrees Pisces (Saturn will be transiting Pisces for another 2 years) is a reminder and an imperative to engage with the non-linear, the dream vision you hold for the world you wish to create. Listen to your dreams and nurture your heartfelt desires to feel at peace and harmony with all. Saturn’s work can feel very hard, but the harvest is promised with work well done.
The New Moon forms a trine with retrograde Neptune in Pisces. Getting to the core of lingering, seemingly unsolvable issues and seeing a fix…hold that thought! Who is creating REALITY? We are!
Care for yourself in any way you need to soothe, comfort, and strengthen your emotional body. As you ground and anchor your body into the Earth you can feel yourself calming and relaxing. The earth can provide mothering care in a very real felt sense. You know how refreshed you feel when you take a walk outside? That is Nature herself healing you, connecting you with Source energy. As you allow yourself to connect more and more with Source energy you feel calmer and more relaxed. It’s a practice worth practicing and no better time that deep into the Scorpionic realm to practice deeply connecting with Source, supporting you in taking the very best care of yourself, your tender and precious self.
All these many years I have been tracking astrological influences in my own chart I have to say that I have found it helpful to know what tools would be required to help me navigate with relative ease through any and all kinds of situations – a learning process, for sure! For me the most important tool for navigating these times of upheaval and, for some, highly triggered emotional events, is to connect with the Earth, to ground my energy into the Earth, to feel the comfort of Earth’s vibration.
This week I raked leaves like mad, filling 20 leaf bags! I also like to clean, to organize stuff, and to create beauty in any and all ways I can. What do you like to do that keeps you feeling sane? Do more and more of that! Care for yourself with tenderness and compassion for these are times of great transition on our planet. A battle of consciousness is at hand. Light and Love leader, light your candle of LOVE to illuminate our way to PEACE. Your LIGHT is needed! Cultivate JOY as JOY is LIGHT!
