On November 4th/5th 2021 we have a New Moon at 12° Scorpio.
This Scorpio lunation cycle is incredibly important. Mid-lunar cycle, we will have our first Eclipse on the Taurus/Scorpio axis, which kickstarts the upcoming 2-year eclipse season on the Taurus/Scorpio axis.
2 years from now we will pretty much bathe in Scorpio’s still waters, while at the same time getting THUNDERSTRUCK by Uranus in Taurus.
All the planets that are traveling through Scorpio will oppose Uranus in Taurus, creating an interesting water/light dynamic. While the Scorpionic water is not a good conductor for electricity, the Uranian light will shed light on what’s otherwise a territory of shadow and darkness.
The New Moon has a strong Scorpio energy not only because we have the Sun and Moon in the sign of Scorpio, but because the New Moon ruler, Mars, is also in Scorpio and is very powerful in the sign of its domicile.
This is an incredibly driven New Moon that won’t take no for an answer. When Mars in Scorpio wants something, he is going to get it NO MATTER WHAT. Mars in Scorpio is not blunt and pushy like Mars in Aries… Mars in Scorpio takes its time. His will is so strong, that in his quest to win the battle, he will do whatever it takes, go as deep as he can, and leave no stone unturned.
Scorpio waters run deep – Scorpio rules over the underworld afterall. The underworld – not to be confused with death – is the purgatory, a place of deep transformation. This is where we let go of what no longer sustains growth, so that we can rise again, stronger and wiser.
We all fear that place where things get rotten, decay, and change their substance. We never go there willingly. It is the element of ‘not knowing’ what’s on the other side that makes us want to stand back, be in control, and do whatever it takes to preserve the status quo.
But the Scorpio work is not about preserving the status quo, but about working through this deep transformation process from one state of being to another.
True power has nothing to do with control – of other people or of life circumstances. True power is about having that inner strength to navigate through the storm. There will always be things we can’t control, and true strength is not about getting our way, but about handling whatever comes our way.
New Moon In Scorpio – Thunderstruck
The New Moon in Scorpio is exactly opposite Uranus, the planet of ‘expect the unexpected’.
Uranus comes with an interesting plot twist.
Even the most minutious, well concocted Scorpio plans – and Scorpio is very good at hiding his traces – will now be revealed in the strike of a lightning bolt.
Whatever it is that was lurking in the back of your conscious mind – the taboo, the unspoken – will now come to light. Not to expose you or point a finger at you – but to reveal something that is so obvious, so striking, that it can no longer be ignored.
Whenever in doubt, always trust the outer planets – especially Uranus. Outer planets are ahead of their times and always know better – so what may feel like an unwelcome change of plans may be your best solution yet.
New Moons are dark Moons – not a time to get out there and change the world. These are times to sit still and listen. Uranus will thunderstruck you with something that will feel so real, so true, so obvious, that it will shake you to the core of your being.
Blindfolded, in the dark of the New Moon, what is it that you can now see for what it is – so obviously, so strikingly – that you can no longer ignore?
