The new moon in Scorpio marks the beginning of the lunar cycle, bringing with it fresh starts, opportunities, and new beginnings. It is the perfect night to set intentions for the upcoming month. During this phase, the moon is not visible from Earth, representing a period of darkness and mystery. This energy aligns perfectly with the essence of Scorpio, a water sign associated with depth, intensity, and transformation. 

Scorpio is traditionally ruled by Mars, the Greek god of War. Modern astrologers assign co-rulership to Pluto as well, our god of the Underworld. If you can imagine these two energies together, presiding over the domain of Scorpio, you can start to understand the ambitiously dark & transformative essence that is the nature of the sign; Scorpio possesses an intensity that can be both alluring and intimidating. (If you have a Scorpio in your life, you know exactly what we are talking about!) Like the scorpion, this sign is known for its secretive nature and the desire to probe beneath the surface. As the sun and moon come together in Scorpio during the new moon, the veils between the conscious and unconscious mind are lifted, inviting us to meet our Shadow with our light.

The energy of the New Moon in Scorpio calls us to embrace transformation on both personal and collective levels. This is a time to confront our shadows, those hidden aspects of ourselves that we may avoid or deny. By acknowledging these aspects, we can next meet them and then work toward integrating them into who we are. It's an opportune moment to release old patterns, grudges, and emotional baggage that no longer serve our higher purpose.  It's Shadow Work and lives in the domain of Scorpio.

Harnessing the energy of the moon means living in the flow of the cosmos and leaning into the energy that is present. The new moon energy is that of new beginnings and setting intentions, creating the time in the cycle where we check in and plot course. In the reincarnating realm of Scorpio, focus on intentions related to personal growth, empowerment, and the shedding of old layers. Whether it's cultivating deeper emotional connections, tending to your dreams, sitting in inner reflection, or deep meditation, the new moon provides the ideal soil to plant these seeds for future growth.

Here are some simple ways you can harness the energy of the New Moon in Scorpio

  1. Journaling: Set aside time to journal about your fears, desires, and areas in your life where you seek transformation.

  2. Meditation: Sit in meditation to explore your innermost thoughts and emotions. Focus on letting go of what no longer serves you.

  3. Cleansing: Clear your space of stagnant energy by playing a singing bowl, burning incense, cleansing herbs, or using cleansing crystals like obsidian or black tourmaline.

  4. Water Ritual: Scorpio is a water sign, so taking a ritual bath or spending time near water can be a cleansing and rejuvenating experience.

  5. Shadow Work: Spend some time listening to your triggers and exploring their roots. Have honest inner dialogue with yourself and explore the fears that are holding you back.
