The October 2019 New Moon in Scorpio marks the beginning of a new cycle. In the sign of depth, drama, death, and resurrection, this lunation brings us big transformation whether we are ready or not. With the moon in opposition to rebellious and erratic Uranus, sudden shocks may shake us up, and we need to be mindful of how we react. Rushing or acting impulsively could lead to accidents, so please be mindful of your body and your actions. Don't speed in your car; don't multitask while you're cutting an avocado. With Mercury in shadow and on its way to retrograde, being too swift with your words can also cause unexpected damage in relationships and communication. Even if your energy feels UP and electric, try to make a conscious effort to slow down and act only when you are doing so with surefooted intention.
Scorpio influences us to delve deeply, discover what is hidden, and bring to light and revolution whatever we find. Spending time sitting with, rather than running from, uncomfortable truths is the best use of this energy. It is by refusing to face things through avoidance or escape that we may wind up hurting ourselves or causing unintended chaos, but if we remain steadfast in the face of our shadows, the shape of them may change. We will find ourselves transformed: the seeds of healing planted, the irons that bound us suddenly, surprisingly broken. ❤️
