New Moon in Scorpio

Scorpio is the most private and intense sign of the Zodiac. Like a still lake, with a smooth glass like surface, where energies are directed inward, like an undertow.
As a fixed or solid sign, Scorpio is associated with the stabilisation of the seasons, giving an acute awareness of the rhythms and cycles of life, death and re-birth. The fixed modality of Scorpio offers the attributes of loyalty, perseverance and commitment.
Being a water sign, her nature is emotional and intensely private. Scorpio must have full trust before you’ll see even a ripple in the smooth lakes surface. You may not outwardly see the emotions displayed, but you know they are there.
Under this lunation, the depths of your own emotions may come to the surface. The parts of yourself you keep hidden, or the secrets you keep from others, or even from yourself, may rise to the surface like a bubble disrupting the still stagnant beauty of the glassy lake.
The sign of Scorpio, alongside her watery cousins Cancer and Pisces are known as mute signs. They belong to the realm of feelings rather than thoughts. Mercury is in close conjunction with this New Moon in Scorpio, helping you to give a voice to your most private emotions.

A supportive link to Neptune and the South Node can help you cleanse, purify and let go of old habits or patterns of behaviour that hold you back from tapping into the feelings of your heart.
Venus and Saturn make a potent pairing under this lunation. The magical dreams and visions inspired by Neptune can be made manifest by the help and support of someone else. It may also highlight the reality of the level of support you need, but may not have.
This New Moon in Scorpio can be an opportunity to set new intentions about how you give voice to your feelings. Even if these feelings, thoughts and emotions aren’t heard by someone else, letting them out via journaling, writing or some other cathartic process will be healing and regenerative.

Recently, I’ve been re-visiting the Rebel Heart album by Madonna. The song Messiah from it, truly encapsulates the astrology behind this Scorpio New Moon.

I am the promise
That you cannot keep
Reap what you sow
Find what you seek

I am the sorceress
Down in the deep
I am the earth
Under your feet

I am the moon with no light of my own
You are the sun guarding your throne

I heard the angels whisper to me
Look for the signs
He is the one

I’ll light a candle here in the dark
Making my way to your heart
I’ll cast a spell that you can’t undo
‘Til you wake up and you find that you love me too
‘Til you wake up and you find that you love me too

I’ll be the bride that is married to life
You are the day, I am the night
Leave you a blanket of silver and gold
I’ll keep you warm, do as I’m told
I need your strength, it will keep me from harm
I’d be your queen, safe in your arms
Don’t want to get to the end of my days
Saying I wasn’t amazed

I’ll light a candle here in the dark
Making my way to your heart
I’ll cast a spell that you can’t undo
‘Til you wake up and you find that you love me too
‘Til you wake up and you find that you love me too

“Messiah” from the Rebel Heart Album by Madonna.
