The New Moon signifies “new beginnings” and is a time to set the seeds for the future, so the New Moon in Scorpio will help us express our emotions from our heart.

The intenseness of the New Moon in Scorpio gives us the window to look deeply into ourselves and ask what are the most important things in our life.  We can then discard the unnecessary baggage to give our thinking and decision making more clarity.

If things aren’t working anymore whether it’s a job, a relationship that has lost its spark or maybe in a business that is either needing change, let it go or parts of it go, don’t hang on to it. The more you hang on the more difficult it will be, when you let things go it gives space for the new to come in be it things, people or experiences.

Look at your deepest wishes and desires, if you are stuck in your emotions you can use the Scorpio New Moon to set serious new goals and intentions.   Scorpio rules self-mastery and the Scorpio New Moon will inspire you to have the courage and determination to face things that are unpleasant including any hardships you have, to make you become stronger.

Scorpio is the only sign that represents three stages of transformation. The first stage is the Scorpion who goes into the intense darkest depths of emotion to change to the Phoenix rising up from the ashes, to eventually the Dove, representing peace and our spirit.   If you push your emotions down, they will only return with more intensity.

How the New Moon in Scorpio Coincides with Your Cycle

Day 12:  Sex is an incredibly important drive of behaviour and who we are.  We turn into sexy Marilyn Munroe with pitched voices that are more attractive to both men and women.  Physiologically, our bodies also tell us we are extremely fertile, with the stretchy cervical fluid (yep that fluid is not an infection!)  You are feeling sexy and extremely turned on.

Days 18 – 28:  You may only be on Day 18 but it’s worth noting to prepare for PMS in the following days.  Symptoms generally make themselves known around 5-10 days before your period and dissipate with its start or soon after, some say almost instantaneously.

This can be a time when everything blows up our skin and our emotions.  PMS can be an extremely intense time.  Combined with the fiery energy of Scorpio New Moon you may need to watch your temper and be aware of your reactions. When you feel the stress of your emotions building, take steps to hold yourself in a space to allow your emotions to subside. Go for a walk, get outside, deep breath, hurtful and insensitive words cannot be undone. As always, it is recommended you take time to do meditation, look at your nutrition and what you are putting into your body and how it’s making you feel.

You can find nutritious recipes, meditation to support you through your cycle while Astrology will help find the meaning behind the New Moon in Scorpio to harness its energies.
