October 23rd New Moon in Scorpio and Solar Eclipse
A Remarkable Opportunity for Humankind
It’s been two weeks since the powerful Full Moon Eclipse on October 8th brought forth the magnificent images of the radiant orange moon. Sights were set high as the barometer for unprecedented awakening re-charged our hearts. The changes that have been shared with me have been off the charts! …and this wave of goodwill continues forward with the auspicious seeding of the New Moon at 0 + degrees Scorpio.
This New Moon (Sun and Moon at 0 degrees Scorpio) is conjunct Venus at 0 degrees Scorpio. I’m so delighted by the mighty zero power if this New Moon that perfectly signifies the possibility of new beginnings at the highest level. We may be prompted to examine sexuality, intimacy, love relations, and hidden or dysfunctional areas of relationship that oppress the soul. The foundation is fertile with the debris of the past and the inner sanctuary of emotion is nurtured with brightly cast seeds of future blossoming.
The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon carries a potent message:
A Crowded Sightseeing Bus on a City Street
Keynote: The fundamental human eagerness to expand one’s social horizon and to experience the results of collective achievements and new ways of life.
Dane Rudhyar writes: “In this symbol we are dealing with a group experience of a vast collective achievement, a city. Individuals coming from a variety of places and backgrounds ‘commune’ in new awareness of a greater whole of human existence, an organized whole with its own rhythms of multifarious activity. New feelings and expansion of consciousness result. The process of ‘initiation’ into collective values is now reaching the Feeling Nature.”
What is at stake is a Widening of Experience.
Furthering this impulse toward awakening, the South Node conjuncts the planet Uranus in the sign of Aries. The South Node represents the past; the energy that must be freed so that the pathway of the North Node, harbinger of the future, may direct us forward. How perfect it is that the planet of liberation assists the collective at this juncture, plus, it’s in the sign of Aries….we are the pioneers!
Another key factor in the New Moon Chart is the placement of Mercury conjunct the North Node in Libra. Balance, adjustments, justice, fairness, and mediation are at play. Do all you can to promote well-being in all relations and take advantage of this opportunity to further expand a repertoire of goodwill in all communication endeavors.
Take a precious look at your life. Feel your way into the blocks of old emotion that may stifle happiness, joy, contentment, and expansion.
The time is ripe…why not cultivate the fruits of these times while they are at our fingertips? The power of love is at an all time high as Venus joins the potential of this New Moon.
With great blessing,
