Today's New Moon will be at 11:38pm EST at 4° Scorpio. Now that we have the Sun, Mercury and Venus also in Scorpio, tonight's moon will be a potent one for manifesting in the areas of intimacy, authentic communication, psychological healing, and psychic abilities
The theme for this New Moon is trust. Trust is not easily earned nor carelessly given by Scorpio. Now that we've come out of Libra season with a deeper understanding of how to build harmony in our relationships, the task that lies ahead of us is how to strengthen our trust---in others, in ourselves, and in our benevolent universe. Without trust, there can be no intimacy, which is what Scorpio truly craves. A Scorpio's deepest desire is to unite with the infinite unknown---to see and been seen at the level of the soul.
The barrier to intimacy is also trust. In the energy of Scorpio, all our wounds, our heartbreaks and disappointments grow more tender and more difficult to hide. Scorpio demands truth and revelation, to unmask what was previously hidden. So the questions to ask yourself are:
What is keeping me from trusting in myself?
What is the barrier to trust in my intimate relationships?
What stands in the way of my faith that the Universe sees me, knows me, and desires for me to flourish?
Whatever your answer, that is your homework for today. Sit with it. Honor it. Show compassion for these wounds that are arising within you now, asking for your love and attention. With Samhain just around the corner, the veils to the otherworlds are thinning. Today is also a perfect day to sharpen our intuitive abilities, to speak with our guides, and to summon our departed loved ones to assist us along our journey---to give us strength to face the lessons that lie ahead.
Suggested ritual for today's New Moon:
For today's ritual, you will need a candle, and an image or memento of a departed loved one, or a god or goddess you wish to honor and summon. (If you don't have a memento or prefer not to use one, that's okay.) Find a quiet place to sit where you will be undisturbed for a while. Mute your phone.
Now call in Archangel Michael and ask for his protection during this ritual. Envision yourself being completely surrounded by a pure golden light. When you are ready to begin, say "I now invite Spirits of the highest truth and compassion to assist with this ritual. May only love enter or exit this circle." Now light your candle and summon your departed loved ones, your spirit guides, and/or whichever gods/goddesses you wish to honor. Ask these beings for strength and for guidance in helping you to reveal and heal the wounds of the past. Ask them for the strength to deepen your trust in others and in yourself. Ask them to help you transform into your Highest Self, and to give you the courage to face whatever challenges might lie ahead. Take as long as you like to talk with them and to seek their counsel. Meditate, reflect, journal---do whatever you feel called to do. This ritual is for your benefit, so honor this sacred time that you have devoted to your own healing and well-being.
When you are finished, thank these light beings for their presence, and blow out the candle. Close the space by thanking Archangel Michael for his protection.
Happy New Moon, my loves. May you be blessed. May you be well.
