Emotional need, challenges, moods, frustrations
Among all lunar zodiac combinations, New Moon in Scorpio coincides prfectly with the primary energy concepts of the New Moon. Just as the energy of Scorpio is distinctly transformative and symbolizes the end and beginning as a part of the same circle of life, as death also represents a new rebirth, so is the time of the New Moon, a time of transformation, new beginnings, a time to sow seeds.
During this New Moon we shall experience some highly intuitive and intense emotional energy, quite normal when dealing with Scorpio. What’s interesting however, is that this largely subconscious and subtle emotional energy will affect our conscious minds quite a bit and will become an important part of our daily thought patterns. During the duration of this transit we shall experience, in a more profound way, a merger of conscious and subconscious energies. These influences will bestow unique opportunities for greater self-discovery and self-understanding, while also reminding us of some pressing, personal and emotional problems, traumas, fears and complexes.
We can expect a change and a transformation of our thinking patterns, our perceptions, emotional expressions. Some will experience significant personal revelations, either positive or negative. Communication in our relationships, communication with our inner selves will revolve around, either more serious, emotionally more difficult, complex issues, or the connection will be very intense, honest , genuine and unique in a positive way. No matter what, transformations will occur, the only question that remains is, how strong will they punch us in the face?
Understand that this energy improves our ability to intuitively perceive the world around us and of course other people just as well. It is important that we succesfully and constructively include our own emotions, feelings and hunches in our conscious, daily thought process. In practice, this will be important in situations where we need to acknowledge and accept certain desires, passions, mistakes, guilt, accept and try to understand a particular life situation we are in, accept and understand our own emotions and the emotions of other people and when we need to confront fears. Our sixth sense will be an important tool when making certain important decisions as well. All in all this particular Moon reveals the level of our emotional and intuitive intelligence.
Challenges will come in various forms. Whatever we expereince during this week will in some way relate to the classic Scorpio based themes ; search for personal power, upholding and enforcing personal power, domination and control over situations, personal transformation, the concept of death and rebirth, intense emotional psychological processes, ect. Some people may be burdened by darker thoughts, feeling more depressed. This will unleash surpressed and subconscious, personal fears and feelings of anxiety.
Others may face problems that consume a significant amount of mental as well as emotional energy. Increased concentration and intensity of focus can bring some near to physical exhaustion, or it can lead to constant stress. Don’t invest in things, situations and people that will only deplete your energy levels, sucking you dry faster than you replenish while giving nothing in return.
Full Moon in Aries brought us some interesting twists, changes and breakthroughs concerning our relationships, our personal beliefs, philosophies, and values. Scorpio New Moon will resume this set of changes in a more radical, transparent, profound and definitive way. Will this be a positive or negative experience? It depends, especially in terms of how we will react to these incoming energy influences.
New Moon in Scorpio will test our intelligence especially one of its more complex aspects. How much are we really able to understand the subconscious part of ourselves, that same subnconsciousness that essentially represents a good portion of our personalities. How well we understand and know our own ‘hearts’, how well do we listen with our ‘hearts’, do we hear the whispers of our souls??
