Energy Report: New Moon in Scorpio
There’s been a lot of energy moving and shifting us in a myriad of ways recently and for some, it's been quite a doozy. After stepping through the 11/11 Ascension Gateway on the 1st day of the 11th month of an 11 year (2+0+1+8=11), we’re given the opportunity to make a clear conscious choice to align with that of our Highest Self. Keyword: Choice. However, with this new moon being in the sensitive, emotional, and intuitive sign of Scorpio, this astrological doorway kicks off a whole month of diving deep into the murky waters of our emotions, in order to release the binds that are weighing us down. For some of us, it may feel like we’ve been drowning in our sorrows (or trying to drown our sorrows) and are overwhelmed by our emotions, and we’re yearning to come up for air. The only way to do this is by bringing acceptance and awareness to our emotional currents versus trying to escape them, so “just keep swimming, just keep swimming, that’s what we do we swim”. Something I teach my students is to use our feelings as feedback. Take a moment to sit back, relax and just breathe. Notice, your feelings. How would you label them? What wisdom and intuitive guidance begin to float to the surface as you dive deeper within the hidden treasures of your consciousness?
This new moon in Scorpio window is Nov. 6-8, its exact point being 11:02am EST on the 7th. Anchored within this transformational season of Scorpio, is a chance to check in with our feelings, listen to our intuition and give ourselves permission to be free of any emotional scars, traumas, unspoken truths, stigmas, taboos and criticism. Now is the time to bring our shadows to light, in order to align our hearts with peace of mind so that we may truly embrace the power that lies within us.
Scorpio, a Water sign, also represents great transformation by assisting us in navigating the terrain of light and dark, death and rebirth. This is why it is associated with the Phoenix, the mythical bird that is destroyed, then reborn through its ashes representing emotional resilience and intelligence. Pettiness, blame, passive aggressiveness, jealousy, narcissism, judgements, and emotional projection occur when we are still in the infancy stages of the Phoenix, versus its mature state that sets it free. When we call upon the power of Scorpio, we can begin to transcend our past of feeling as if we’re drowning in emotions, and learn how to swim with the tide.
Quite often, when the topic of emotional healing comes up, another word is typically suggested: Forgiveness. But what is forgiveness? Notice if any resistance to this word comes up for you. Forgiveness is simply defined as the willingness to forgive. But in order to fully understand this concept, we must first understand that forgiveness is not about the other person. Forgiveness does not require the participation of another. It is not about being “right” or superior, or continuing to wear the victim role because it keeps you enabled and not responsible for the power that you innately possess. This denial of your power to forgive often lies deep within the ego-based subconscious mind as waiting for someone to say “thank you”.
On the flip side, it could also suggest you may be holding on to old emotional baggage because you are still waiting to hear “I’m sorry”. Either way, the root of the matter is the ego’s need to be justified, validated and “right”. In order to set your heart & soul free, are you willing to accept that you may never hear those words, from those you feel have hurt you? When left unresolved and buried in the scars of past wounds, this can be expressed in newer relationships as jealousy/envy, resentment, anger, control, manipulation and at its core foundation: fear.
You may fear that you’re not good enough, or unworthy. You may feel that you will abuse your power, or have it taken away from you. But the truth is, regardless of your circumstances, you are good enough, worthy and powerful. You just have to choose to remember this. When you embrace that you’ve been through the deepest trenches of love’s battles, received accolades for choosing to rise above and you’re willing to experience better, only then can you truly begin to be freer, lighter and more aligned with the Truth of who you are.
No matter how far you’ve swam in the deep, dark waters of emotions and life experiences, I hold space that you too will reclaim your power and trust yourself to create better. May your heart be set free, and the blessings of the universe roll in ecstasy at your feet.
*Who are you willing to “forgive” so that you can release any emotional ties that are binding you to your past?
*If you are still resistant, ask yourself why? How does playing the victim serve you, or does it? Trust that you will move forward when you’re truly ready, and if needed, forgive yourself for any judgment or resistance.
*What expectations do you have for others in your life? Are you willing to let them go and perhaps set intentions for those relationships instead?
*In what ways are you afraid to be vulnerable and open up your heart more? Why?
*What fears are you using to stay disempowered in your ability to create better experiences moving forward? Are you afraid of commitment? Failure? Abandonment? Rejection? If so, why?
*Are you willing to acknowledge your emotions. Why or why not?
*What would life be like if you fully embraced you power, now?
*In what ways are you self-sabotaging to stay disempowered? Why? How can you creatively break-through?
