“Scorpio teaches us that passion happens only when we bring all of who we are to what we are experiencing.” — Olivia Matus
This month’s New Moon in Scorpio 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 each of us. 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 love, grace, and financial abundance.
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 two 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, passion, love and sexuality, and deep internal transformations (often referred to as alchemy). As a water sign, Scorpio represents our emotional realm, and most specifically our subconscious – the underworld.
Mercury is also in the sign of Scorpio (along with the Sun, Moon, and Venus), and is preparing to make its third and final retrograde cycle for 2019 on Halloween day. Astrologically, Mercury is associated with communication and our thought processes. Some say that our voice and the words we choose to speak create our karma. Since words are based on our thought processes, we therefore must consciously change our thoughts so that we can affect the words we speak. Karma isn’t a bad thing, rather it’s quite simply the law of cause and effect: To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
“Situations seem to happen to people, but in reality, they unfold from
deeper karmic causes. The universe unfolds to itself, bringing to bear any cause that needs to be included. Don’t take this process personally. The working out of cause and effect is eternal. You are part of this rising and falling that never ends, and only by riding the wave can you ensure that the waves don’t drown you. The ego takes everything personally, leaving no room for higher guidance or purpose. If you can, realize that a cosmic plan is unfolding and appreciate the incredibly woven tapestry for what it is, a design of unparalleled marvel.” ―
Additionally, Uranus, the planet of change — in the earthy and personal zodiac sign of values — Taurus, is making an exact opposition to this powerful Scorpio New Moon. We can summarize the importance of this aspect in just a couple of words: change of personal values. Uranus in Taurus is asking us to awaken to our authentic truest values and Scorpio wishes to eliminate that which is no longer in alignment with our personal destiny.
This New Moon is a favorable time to rejoice in your transformative meditations and request that the goddesses of grace and good fortune, (Venus, Aphrodite, and Lakshmi,) bestow their gifts of love, peace and harmony, abundance, and the light of inner awareness into your life.
