New Moon in Scorpio- November 18- The Thief in the Night

The New Moon in Scorpio will feel quite dense compared to other New Moons. We have 4 planets in Scorpio- Sun, Moon, Venus, & Jupiter. We can see that a heaviness is present that is dragging us deep into the archetype of Scorpio. Scorpio is the sign of transformation and deep healing. Where ever Scorpio falls in your chart, is the area that will see these themes coming into play.

Uranus will be aspecting the New Moon forcing you to remove the thief in the night that is consuming you. What is draining your energy? The Scorpio waters will be nourishing those parts of your life that need a break through.

Mars square Pluto- don’t be too aggressive in your dealings with others

Astro-Witchery: Little Scorpion

If you are not familiar with the television series ‘Penny Dreadful,’ stop everything you’re doing, take a couple of days off, and binge-watch the entire series. “Many people are familiar with classic literary characters like Dr. Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. Penny Dreadful brings those and other characters into a new light by exploring their origin stories in this psychological thriller that takes place in the dark corners of Victorian London.”

One of the main characters is Vanessa Ives- played by the marvelously Gothic actress Eva Green. Vanessa Ives is a psychic medium, cartomancer, and witch, who’s nick name is Little Scorpion which was given to her by the very first witch she met. Throughout the series- Vanessa draws a scorpion symbol in blood which acts as her totem, talisman, and sigil. She draws the Scorpion symbol as a means to protect herself and to delve deeper within herself. The origins of this symbol are revealed later in the show, but it’s very obvious that Vanessa Ives is a Scorpio. She is seductive, dark, and has many emotional demons…….and some not so emotional demons residing inside her. She seems to know throughout her whole life that there is something dark within her that she does not dare release…….a common Scorpionic theme.

Sigils

If Vanessa uses the Scorpion symbol as her protective talisman and as a means to connect to her inner demons without unleashing them, than that must mean that we can use our own symbols for the same purpose.

This is the sigil for Scorpio:

The M of the sigil signifies Mother Earth and the planet Mars which is Scorpio’s traditional ruler. The tail represents the Scorpion’s tail and poison which is its ability to paralyze people using psychological techniques.

I created a ritual using the character Vanessa Ives as inspiration.

 

 

The Ritual- Ives (pronounced Iv-ez) Scorpionem

Find a quiet space.

Close all the lights.

Light a black candle.

Have a few blank pieces of paper ready along with a red pen or marker.

Begin by drawing the Scorpio sigil- size doesn’t matter.

Continue drawing the sigil, allowing your mind to wander.

The Scorpio sigil will activate your own Scorpionic energies within you.

What are you feeling that wants to be unleashed?

When you recognize what this feeling is, stop drawing the sigil.

Take a piece of smoky quartz in each hand- and recite these words:

“I am strong-willed and agile like the Scorpion.”

“I am most who I am unrestrained.”

Blow out the black candle.

Scatter sea salt on your Scorpion sigils.

Collect all of your sigils into one pile.

Place a piece of Aquamarine on the top page of the pile to wash away any negative energies.

The ritual is complete.

Perform the ritual every Tuesday during Scorpio season.

When Waves Crash Ashore

An Observation

Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are known to be emotional, sensitive, dreamy, and artistic. A lesser known quality of the Water signs would be their strong projection qualities. There’s a mutual exchange that happens when a water sign picks up on the feelings of others but also project their feelings on others. You must be thinking that every person does this, but I’ve noticed that Water signs do this the most to each other.

An insecure Scorpio will do everything in their power to make another water sign insecure. A depressed Cancer will do the same, as will a manipulative Pisces. Water signs are the dowsing rods of the zodiac, they have an incredible talent for seeking out fellow water sources. A Water sign will dry up like a rain droplet in the Sahara if they are surrounded by Earth, Fire, or Air signs. They feel a blockage when dealing with these people as they have an easier time concealing their emotions. For Cancers, Scorpios, and Pisces, what they feel is real. Interacting with Earth signs is like tapping into solid granite, Fire signs are too hot to touch, and Air signs are unreachable.

Every person I’ve known who has a lot of Water energy tends to send a tidal wave of emotions my way since I am also Water dominant. At times it feel likes a tsunami and I am the land. I’ve come to appreciate this as their waves reveal the bottom of their ocean- sometimes it’s a pretty sight, and other times it’s an ugly sight. Merging water with water creates our seas, oceans, rivers, and lakes which are our source of life. Merging with another is what life is all about- without it, none of us would be here.

 

Full Moon in Scorpio May 10, 2017: Soul Detective

Date: May 10, 2017

Degree- 20 degrees

Moonbeams- what is really going on?

Like a detective on the hunt for clues to solve a murder mystery, our Full Moon in Scorpio is asking us to solve our crime of passion, that being our intuitive neglect. Scorpio is a penetrating sign that is able to uncover the “hidden” in everyday life. Ruled by Pluto, Scorpionic energy needs to transform and cleanse negativity in order to make room for its purest expression of intuition. As a water sign, Scorpio’s gift is that of psychic prowess. If Cancer is the healer, and Pisces is the Dreamer, than Scorpio is the mirror. Taurus is the polarity of Scorpio indicating that one’ needs are directly linked to one’s desires. Scorpio above any other sign wants to feel validated for who they truly are without having projections thrown onto them. They cannot help that they find themselves swimming the underground chambers of those they encounter, they cannot help the fact that what they “see” is what they project. In essence, Scorpio becomes the cracked mirror of the zodiac, unable to foster a deep sense of themselves without letting the murky waters below pull them under.

During this lunation the sun will be in Taurus lighting up the Taurus-Scorpio axis. How can we foster that deep sense of self from a place of purity as opposed to contamination? Let’s look to our cosmic clues during this full moon to help us solve this crime.

Mars Squaring Neptune

  • Inability to trust the flow of life, lack of self trust.

Pluto RX Trine Sun

  • Transformation

Mercury Conjunct Uranus

  • Exposure- truth coming out

Full Moon Trine Neptune

  • Strong intuition

Full Moon Trine Chiron

  • Healing the psyche

 

Solving the Crime

If we put these clues together, we can see that this full moon is providing us with the opportunity to repair our cracked mirrors through trusting ourselves and the journey we find ourselves on. If your projections are negative, look within yourself to purge what is no longer serving you. Scorpio is the regenerative sign, so rest assured that even if the waters pull you under, there is a cavern full of light that is beckoning to you…………….transformation.

Mystery Solved.

Case Closed.

Moonbeams: Deepening, Message to Share, New Information

Welcome to our New Moon in Scorpio, also known as a Black Moon as it is our 2nd New Moon of October and 3rd lunation of October. New Moons are times for introspection and paired with the dark intensive sign of Scorpio, deepens the internal waters of our emotions. Our Moon will be conjunct with Mercury at 9 degrees, which means new information will be made to you.The moon will also be trined to Neptune rx in Pisces, meaning the new information you will receive will be instinctual, downloaded from a higher realm, and can be revealed through dreams, Most importantly, this is not a moon of action, rather, feeling and sensing what you know. Tune into your inner being, that is where your answers lie. You will be able to connect the dots, see the patterns of your life, and make sense of something that has been troubling you during this past month. Best advice, trust the process of life, and sail away into your ocean of receptivity.

Scorpio: The Underworld Phoenix

Welcome to Scorpio! Time of secrets, transformation, and resurrection. After exiting the harmonious, self loving time of Libra, we now enter the time of Scorpio which puts to thes test, the balancing act of higher self and lower self. The star sirius rules Scorpio which is all about spirituality and higher consciousness. If you have done the work during Libra time to work with your shadow side, then this next month will be one of integration, of using your shadows and subconscious to create a brand new shift within yourself.

Scorpio energy is all about temptation. Are we going to give into the frivolity of this next month, or are we going to operate from our higher minds? Scorpio is a water sign so it’s also a highly creative and psychic time, so be cautious of how your imagination is shaping your life. Since Scorpionic energy cuts to the issue and source of everything, take this next month as a time to face your issues head on and clear them away. Scorpionic energy is highly regenerative, so you will be able to bounce back with ease. Scorpio is going to show you what you need to transform through opening up the heart and committing to that which you most need. The symbol for Scorpio is most notably the Scorpion. However, the eagle/phoenix is its truest symbol. Scorpionic energy looks straight into the eyes of its obstacles and coupled with its extreme perceptiveness, creates a courageous energy that is able to rise from the ashes and be reborn,that is, if you use your powers for good, not evil.

Overall tip of this next month is to use the heightened perceptivity by going into the underworld chambers of your subconscious to navigate this transparent time to your advantage.
