This evening at 9.14pm the New Moon arrives
This, along with the Full Moon, is the most important date in your month
Because New Moons herald the beginning of a new chapter in your life
And highlight that right now you are on the cusp of transition and change
This New Moon is also a Super Moon (the third of four Super Moons this year)
Super Moons occur when the Moon is at or near perigee (its closest distance to the Earth),
Which means that you’ll feel the symbolism and the influence much more intensively.
So it’s important to understand that this new lunar cycle is being led by Scorpio
The second water sign and the deepest and most mysterious member of the zodiac
Scorpio is connected to themes around taboos and secrets
So this is an energetic cycle where any issues that have been hidden or suppressed will come to the fore
Scorpio which heralds our descent into the darker Winter months is also connected to issues around death
It’s no coincidence that Halloween and the Day of the Dead all fall at this time of the year
As it is often acknowledged that the veil between the two worlds is at its thinnest right now
However, while Scorpio is closely intertwined with death
This sign is more interested in the transformation that death brings.
Of enabling the parts that no longer serve you, to die.
Because this new lunar cycle wants your personal transformation.
And Scorpio beckons you to do this by embracing the dark.
By looking at the areas in your life which you would prefer to ignore or keep hidden.
Because it is only by exposing your deepest, darkest fears that you can overcome self imposed barriers and limitations that can cause pain and constriction.
And yet it’s not always easy to look at the skeletons hiding in the closet
Perhaps that is why this sign is so closely connected to its ruling planet of Mars.
We need the power of this war god to help us fight and ultimately destroy our inner demons.
Because whatever your secrets are, this New Moon offers you the strength to lift the veil and face your deepest fears.
And while this Moon is intense – jealously and possessiveness can, if unchecked abound.
Underneath these traits is a stillness and acceptance waiting for you.
The chance to accept the whole of who you are – the dark and the light which you need both of in this world to thrive.
So if you can make some time today to really think about how you can direct this fresh, new energy in your life.
What is that you need to let go of, surrender, so that a rebirth can be set in motion?
