New Moon in Scorpio
October 23/24, 2014

Dear Readers,

You may notice some changes to our web site over the next several months as we work to provide you with a better service.

Here's the chart for the Scorpio New Moon, which is also a Solar Eclipse:
Our calendars have exact time and date in your zone


The sign of Scorpio is associated with sex, death, and rebirth. The house that Scorpio occupies in the natal chart shows an area of life where one may be obsessive, have secrets, feel jealousy, and battle for control. It also shows the area where one can replenish their energy, tune into to hidden currents of meaning, be especially resourceful, passionate, private, and powerful. Scorpio is a water sign with a focus on introspection, intensity and intimacy. Ruled by Mars & Pluto, there is an emphasis on investigation, analysis, recycling, and transformation. Issues involving shared resources, taxes, insurance, banking, credit, inheritances, trust, revenge, research, and magic become accentuated during the Scorpio cycle.

Sun,Moon,& Venus quintile Jupiter:
There is tremendous creative energy in this aspect configuration, highlighting the ability to create a stylized image based on a value system centered on love, generosity, and freedom of artistic expression. The keyword for the quintile is 'talent'. Master astrologer John Sandbach says, "I would add to this an innate talent, that tends to manifest spontaneously and with a lot of raw vitality behind it. The five pointed star is the symbol of magic, and the 5-based quintile carries the energy of magic." He goes on to say, "The quintile's relationship to magic is that if you adopt a positive and confident attitude, miracles can happen, and the quintile is tending very strongly toward positivity and confidence. The successful performance of magic depends on intent, and the quintile spontaneously manifests a very pure creative intent, if the energy is not repressed."

Mercury quintile Pluto:
Here the talent is for compelling communication. Repressed or misused, it will manifest as controlling communication or extreme propaganda.

Jupiter quindecile Neptune:
This is potentially disruptive as intensified desires for personal rewards combine with an obsessive focus on spirituality, creativity, or escapism.

The key phrases for Scorpio are "I Desire" and "I Transform".

Our advice for this cycle:
Imagination runs rampant during this cycle; use it to move forward, rather than being frozen in fear.

It is best to take a cold, hard look at all incoming information, as much of it is aimed at sensationalism, which keeps us in fear. The current Ebola situation and the rapidly spreading fear of a pandemic illness can be seen as a manifestation of the last two aspects referenced above.

We recommend using this cycle to overcome fear by concentrating on your creativity. Consider how you can present yourself to the world in ways that express your essence.

Regenerate your energy by bathing in Epsom salts, swimming in salt water, or soaking your feet in a detoxifying foot bath. Participating in any physical activity that promotes sweating will also produce the therapeutic affect of rejuvenating your energy.

Scorpio correlates to Introspection on the Medicine Wheel. Contemplation of the meaning of your Experiences during the Libra cycle will lead to a healthy self-examination and increased self-knowledge.

Use this cycle to examine your compulsions and obsessions. This is a time when perceived liabilities can become assets and vice versa. Transformation comes by looking deep into the psyche for understanding and wisdom.

Questions you might explore for personal insight include:

  •  What is it you would most like to see changed?
  •  What things can you release?
  •  When do you feel most fearful?
  •  How comfortable are you with your sexuality?
  •  Where and with whom would life be easier if you were to form more intimate connections?
  •  Do you think you are being manipulating or manipulated and how does that make you feel?
  • What action can you take to step into your power?

Affirm: I Am Transformed by Love.

Attune to the qualities of Scorpio and this cycle with a 3-minute tarot meditation on Death.

Death is the initiate of the Mysteries, he understands transformative power and reminds us that to live is to die and to die is to be reborn.

Confer with Death when there is resistance to change.

Quote for this cycle:
"Fear is a darkroom where negatives develop."
~ Michael Pritchard (1949 - ) American comedian, motivational speaker, and educator
