November 18th is a New Moon in Scorpio! Scorpio rules deep transformation, and this lunation invites us to dive into the depths of our psyches in order to unearth profound emotional truth and powerful change. We are called to dig deeper into the mysteries around us, rather than being content with the status quo or accepting blindly because it is more comfortable. It’s a good time for examining your motives, your triggers, and your passions, and deciding which of these you would like to keep with you and which you would like to begin releasing. Bringing what has been enshrouded in shadow into the light of your conscious awareness can show you the myriad tools you possess to claim mastery of your life and experience a powerful rebirth. One way to work with these energies would be to think about or write down the qualities that you like least about your personality or behaviors. Then, ask yourself how these qualities have benefitted you. There’s always *something*, even if it seems insignificant or illogical—otherwise, why would you embody them? Did they protect you in the past? Are they helping you now? Do you remember how or why or when they started presenting themselves? Have they led you to cultivate any further qualities that you value? Do you want to work with them, transmute them, or leave them entirely behind? Whichever you choose, write them down on small pieces of paper and burn them (in a fire safe vessel), focusing on your intention as you watch the paper smolder and smoke rise. The Dark Moon is a time of letting go of the old and ponderous in order to move forward feeling lighter and ready for a fresh start. In alignment with that theme, it is a great time for decluttering your physical space as well. This New Moon supports setting something in motion that will be playing out for at least the next 6 months. Be sure to use this energy to set intention and take first action on a positive goal, even if it’s small! <3
