New Moon in Scorpio ~ Exploring the Mystery!
New Moon in Scorpio Wednesday (9:47am PST)!
The New Moon in the brooding and passionate sign of Scorpio, taps into our primal energy and awakens the desire to explore the unknown, the great Mystery. Death and Rebirth are Scorpio’s calling cards and combined with these lunar energies, the time is ripe to shed old ways of being, to transform outmoded forms and rise to new heights. Indeed, this moon carries the energy signature of Snake—the animal totem representing the ability within each of us to transmute old poisons, shed old skin, and embrace rebirth!
The Greek myth associated with Scorpio is the story of Persephone. Long story, short, Persephone, the daughter of Demeter and Zeus was kidnapped by Hades (or Pluto, Scorpio’s ruling planet) to become his bride in the underworld. Her mother was bereft by the loss of her daughter and begged Zeus to make amends. So an agreement was made that Persephone was to be liberated from the underworld in Spring and Summer, and then to return to the underworld in Fall and Winter.
The theme of this Scorpion story, is that we all may need to be necessarily “kidnapped” into the underworld, the dark reaches of our being and the unknown. And by willingly doing so, by surrendering into our darkness, there’s amazing transformation that will come.
It’s also important to note, that this new moon falls on 11*11. This is an important Master Number, and could be seen as an opening, a cosmic portal to a greater sense of spiritual power and wellbeing. A time where we’re all being called to trust our deeper instincts and walk through the door of self mastery and become one with the shifting tides.
Wishing you a transformative New Moon. Surrender into the mystery, and know transformation will come!
