Scorpio New Moon:
Rebirthing ourselves

by Juliana McCarthy

November 7, 2018 — The Scorpio New Moon arrives on Wednesday, at 8:01am Pacific Time, sparking deep transformation and rebirth. It’s a good time to turn inward, to meditate and reset, as we begin whole new cycles in many facets of our lives.

This lunation occurs in the midst of several major planetary transits, emphasizing our feelings of newness—along with the uncertainty that accompanies them. The North Node just moved into Cancer on Monday, shifting our direction forward. We’re now placing emphasis on developing the power of our vulnerability and feeling what we feel, without repression.

Meanwhile, we’re upending patriarchal conditioning—the unresolved karma of the South Node in Capricorn. We’re beginning to understand that repressed emotions aren’t strength, but unprocessed pain we end up projecting onto others. 

At the same time, we’re closing out a year of Jupiter in Scorpio, which has extracted our shadows—specifically relating to power, abuse, and sexuality. We’re now preparing to feel much more expansive and outward facing, as Jupiter moves into Sagittarius on Thursday. Our energy and optimism are ready to return, full-speed.

But first, on this Scorpio New Moon, we can pause to feel the places in ourselves and the world where we’ve been painfully healing. We can nurture and nourish ourselves, loving the places where we still feel hurt, raw, or unsure. 

With the North Node in Cancer, we are encouraged now to embrace ourselves as we are. Like unconditionally loving mothers, we can care for ourselves with tenderness and forgiveness. We can fill our cups with self-love until they overflow, and from here, we can help others do the same.

On this Scorpio New Moon, may we surrender to the fires of renewal as they engulf us with healing potential. May we embrace our inner power, which comes when we allow our emotions to flow freely—without judgment, rigidity, or repression.
