7 degrees and 43 minutes of Scorpio

The cultural transformation from the love of power to the power of love is the drama of our time.  ~ Anodea Judith, Waking the Global Heart.


Scorpio is the zodiac sign that symbolizes death and rebirth, so it is no coincidence that the Sun is transiting the sign of the Scorpion during Halloween and Dia de los Muertos, the holidays that recognize and honor dead souls. This month’s New Moon also falls in the domain of the Scorpion and will highlight personal power dynamics, possessions, other people’s money, love and sexuality, and deep internal transformations.  As a water sign, Scorpio represents our emotional realm, and most specifically our subconscious – the underworld.

If you are finding yourself immersed in an underworld of internal struggles, or just needing to transform an important area of your life, this New Moon is the time to ask for assistance in making the changes you desire.

Scorpio is one of the signs most reflecting karma and Mercury the planet associated with communication and thought processes is closely aligned to this New Moon. I recently heard karma described as our voice, and that the words we choose to speak create karma. Words are based on our thought processes; therefore, if you don’t like the words you speak and wish to change your karma, you must begin by changing your thoughts. Karma is also simply known as the law of cause and effect. To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. When Scorpio is active we can sometimes find ourselves involved in issues of power struggles. Therefore, it is especially important to remain conscious of karmic laws while under the influence of Scorpio.

This month’s New Moon in Scorpio also ushers in an annual and auspicious celestial event known by the Hindus as Diwali or The Festival of the Lights. It is a time of celebration and lighting of lamps to honor the light of consciousness that exists within. Diwali also marks the beginning of a new financial year. Households and businesses begin new accounting ledgers dedicated to the Divine Mother and Lakshmi—the Goddess of Fortune—who is specifically honored during Diwali.

This New Moon is a favorable time to rejoice in your meditations and request that the many Goddesses of Grace and Good Fortune, (Venus, Aphrodite, and Lakshmi,) bestow their gifts of inner awareness and abundance into your life through love, peace, and harmony.
