"You can't go back and change the Beginning
but you can start where you are and change the Ending"
- C. S. Lewis
Our rivers of emotion always run deep whenever Scorpio is involved. Scorpio is the most intense of the water signs and symbolises our inner psyche, the part of us that houses our most intimate secrets, patterns of behaviour formed from earlier life experiences and our ability to trust and work with others. Scorpio symbolises our relationship with the cycle of death and rebirth and our ability to transform.
NEW MOON IN SCORPIO
This month's New Moon takes place in the Sign of Scorpio on 18 November 2017 at 10.42pm (AEDST).
With the New Moon in this sign, it brings an opportunity to give yourself an Emotional Make-over. In other words, it's a great time to give your emotional well-being an uplift. The energy is supportive of finding new ways to break down rigid patterns of thinking and being that you know are holding you back.
So this new moon brings opportunity for deep personal transformation. But as we know, profound transformation is not a comfortable process. It requires acknowledgement of difficult issues, and then doing the work to process your way through them. In other words you need to release anything that's holding you back in order to regenerate.
A terrific metaphor for this Scorpio energy is nourishing the soil with compost before planting new seeds. It's impossible for seedlings to grow to their full potential unless the messy, smelly nutrient rich compost is incorporated into the gardening process. Putting the compost on is not the fun part... but enjoying the delicious fruits of the harvest most certainly is!
So, November's New Moon’s energy provides a platform to ask for and manifest new ways to deal with deep issues and make room for personal growth.
WHAT IS THE NEW MOON?
Every 29 1/2 days, the Moon travels through an 8 phase lunar cycle. The New Moon phase is the first of the cycle and occurs when the Moon is at the exact same degree in the Sky as the Sun.
From Earth she therefore appears as a Black Moon.
The New Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another and is a POTENT time for starting things anew to manifest the dreams of our Heart.
It might feel like a quiet time, when life is veiled in darkness and things are brewing... but for thousands of years it's been considered a powerful time for planting seeds, making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf or beginning any new project.
USING THE SCORPIO NEW MOON TO CREATE AN EMOTIONAL OVERHAUL
With Scorpio's deep, transformational energy being activated this New Moon, it's a powerful time to set intentions to give yourself an emotional overhaul! To help you make the most of this energy, below are three question categories for you to ask yourself and journal answers to.
1. Acknowledge and seek help to work through any deep feelings that come up for you.
Which psychological issue/s continues to come up for me that holds me back personally and professionally?
What steps can I take this month to address it/ them?
Who can I approach for support (professional help/friends/colleagues?)
2. Deepen relationships - commitments made during the Scorpio New Moon often have real staying power
Which personal and professional relationships best honour my strengths and purpose in my career and personal life?
How can I deepen these to support my emotional wellbeing in 2018
3. Drop grudges - Let go of any emotional and toxic baggage. It's only holding you back.
Where am I holding a grudge with colleagues / business partners or friends that I'm ready to let go of?
In letting go of the grudges, what positive and constructive way of being can I replace it with?
To help you solidify your emotional overhaul intentions, I've created a powerful Ritual for you to do around the time of the New Moon. As part of the ritual, you'll need to work through the above questions so keep them handy!!

If you're simply not loving your career path any longer or your business is not getting the lift-off you're longing for, then now is the time to do something about it.
