The Moon in Astrology personifies the feminine principle, perceived as the Mother, progenertrix of growth and fertility in all that is. In her new Moon phase she is the Cauldron of Regeneration, as she creates a new emotional cycle for us collectively, this one lasting till December 14th.
In Scorpio the archetypal themes are complex, surprising and powerfully regenerative. For the next 28 days we all will experience the drive to create and consciously experience endings or cyclical “deaths” within our lives, in order to dive deep into the mystery and vitality of it. Mortality causes one to awake from the sometimes slumber of ordinary reality!!
The concept that our lives are both stable and unstable, visible and invisible and that this cyclical polarity both causes and supports reality is highlighted.
Our Moon makes only supportive connections this lunation, with Neptune by trine and Jupiter and Pluto by sextile, a welcome relief after so much past strife. The Moon’s traditional ruler Mars is now direct also and unhampered, forging the way for progress.
The idea that Scorpio’s hidden powers, which include the un-seen and the ending of things- has essential value in the cyclical nature of creation and this is a key focus now and in the weeks ahead.
Letting go of the past- physically, mentally and emotionally in the ongoing process of mastering our inner selves and therefore re-birthing ourselves psychologically-- is highlighted.
The development of a mature strength and faith in our ability to connect our wild and instinctual self with our civilized and cultured selves, to center our lives in love and trust learning to re-imagine and re-birth our lives to blend and harmonize is essential now.
To do this we must be centered in what we appreciate in our lives, even as we make wishes for our ideal future as let go of those things that do not represent our values.*
Here is a small ritual to do to get to the bottom of any “ Mystery” you may have in your life, adapted from wiccanspells.info
Simple Truth Spell
This is a simple spell to help you reveal the truth about any situation. It can be helpful if you feel that something is being purposefully hidden from you, or if you seek clarity about any situation in your life. For this truth spell, you will need: A lapis lazuli gemstone (must be cleansed before use – do this by soaking the stone in water with a pinch of sea-salt, or by holding it over a lit stick of incense, cleansing it with the smoke) or alternatively a lapis lazuli orgonite, which does not need cleansing A white or purple spell candle Performing the truth spell Center and ground yourself, then cast your circle. Light the candle in front of you, and meditate on the light of the flame for a few minutes, clearing your mind of all thought as best you can. Then, take the lapis lazuli crystal into your hand. Close your eyes and see a bright white flame with your mind’s eye. See the flame growing larger and larger, filling the whole circle with light. Make this light as strong as you can, and hold this image for a minute or so. Then, send this light into the crystal you are holding. Visualise the lapis stone absorbing all the light inside the circle, until it glows brighter than a thousand flames. Repeat the following incantation: May the truth I seek Be revealed to me, May the hidden come to light, So mote it be. Close the circle. The lapis lazuli crystal is now enchanted to reveal the truth of any situation. Before you go to sleep, place the crystal under your pillow, and intend for the truth to be revealed to you in your dreams. (You don’t need to remember your dreams for this to work – the truth will come to you in the form of intuition and gut feelings during the day). When you are not using the crystal, keep it wrapped in a white cloth, and don’t let it be handled by anyone other than yourself.
