      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: NEW MOON IN SCORPIO

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: NEW MOON IN SCORPIO

       

      As we come to a close on this moon cycle and enter into the next, the New Moon in Scorpio marks a perfect time to begin something new. Whether it’s bringing a fresh burst of optimism to your outlook on current events, or something as simple as clearing away the clutter to make room for new projects, any small changes you can make to prepare will be beneficial to you and those you surround yourself with. 


      The Moon’s relationship to Pluto is driving us forward with increased momentum to achieve our goals, and as we said in our last horoscope update, this is being felt across the signs. Make room to spread out and grow into who you are meant to become. Be wary not to burn those who want to genuinely support you and make an extra effort to keep communication open with the ones you love. A sense of community is crucial to stay healthy through this period.


      In other celestial news, the Leonid meteor shower is peaking this weekend through Nov. 17th! If you can get outside to observe them, we recommend finding dark skies before dawn (when the constellation Leo is highest in the sky) for the best viewing opportunities. This particular meteor shower is visible most years, but intensifies when the Comet Tempel-Tuttle is close to Earth. According to historians, this causes a meteor “storm” rather than a “shower” due to the denser conglomerate of meteors surrounding the true comet. 


      In 1966 observers said they “almost needed to grip the ground,” because the sensation of Earth’s movement through space during the Leonid storm was so strong. Imagine! If it’s anything like the illustration we discovered below, we can see what they mean. The last perihelion (the closest point to the sun) was in 1998, so we will have to wait until 2031 until Tempel-Tuttle comes around again, but we’re happy to wait!

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: New Moon in Leo

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: New Moon in Leo

       

      When the Sun enters into the zodiac of Leo you know life is about to get a little heated. The features and characteristics of this fiery sign are only enhanced as our lunar beauty continues to orbit around us. But what happens when that light isn’t being reflected back at us in the night sky? As the New Moon approaches on the evening of the 18th, take note of your inner light and see how it glows while you’re surrounded by that darkness.


      This is the perfect time to do some soul searching and dive into the conversations or projects that you don’t normally have the mind space to grapple with. Now that the fog has cleared and some of the other looming tasks in your life are out of the way, you can clear up misunderstandings or reschedule the plans that were put on the back burner. Maybe there’s a project you’ve been wanting to start but never seem to have the right energy? This is the time to go for it!


      If you find you’re feeling more burnt out than you’d like during this lunar cycle then look to Mars. The red planet is extra active in our skies right now and you might even notice some increased anxiety. It’s most likely because you can finally see the broader picture and all the moving pieces don’t look so blurry now. See this as an opportunity to let this energy in and become a helpful rhythm. Let it influence you and reset you, giving you  a new balanced perspective.


      Consider setting aside some time this week to indulge in an activity at the same time every day to build a routine you can rely on. We suggest a mindful meditation moment or even a simple walk around your neighborhood. This can help as we transition into a new season and are required to experience what was once so normal in an entirely different way. 


      Remember that the Leo light is helping to support you in the absence of the moon’s glow and that this period is always an ideal time to recharge and prepare to start something new!

      Tonight is a Full Moon in Aquarius, and also a lunar eclipse!
