Scorpio New Moon, November 7, 2018
Transformation or Death
After the intense Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon on October 24 th , we get to settle into the watery depths to renew ourselves. When we dive deep into Scorpio's dark waters, we're sustain by the water grand trine between this Scorpio New Moon, Neptune in Pisces and the North Node in Cancer.
The Moon's nodes shifted from Leo/Aquarius to Cancer/Capricorn just hours before this New Moon. Since Cancer's ruling planet is the Moon, this first New Moon of this nodal cycle needs to be approached with respect and a ritual. Respect because it occurs on Scorpio's power gate and ushers in this new nodal axis; a ritual because it is a good way to channel these energies.
Since May 2017, the lunar nodes have been in Leo/Aquarius, helping us to engage more in life, laughter and creativity (Leo north node) and not be so dis-engaged, rebellious and judgmental (Aquarius south node). Now with the lunar nodes move into the Cancer/Capricorn axis on November 7, 2018, we'll learn how to put aside the more negative Capricorn south node qualities of domination, self-denial, over-responsibility, hopelessness and repressed emotions for the Cancer north node gifts of emotional security, self-care, intuitive knowing and creative nurturing of life.
It's time to stop looking to the great Father (Capricorn) for answers and instead turn to the Great Mother (Cancer) for the support, encouragement and comfort that she provides. It's time to start caring about our people rather than our corporations; about our air, water and earth rather than our profits. It's about putting people at the center of our concerns rather than the economy. The economy should serve the people, not enslave them. Once we get rid of the patriarchal corporate mentality running our world, we can put the economy where it belongs -- as just one facet of life amongst many -- such as education, family, community, health, the environment, the arts, and justice and peace.
The grand fixed cross between the nodes and Venus opposite Uranus has now moved into the cardinal signs: the nodes in Cancer/Capricorn and Uranus opposite Venus in Aries/Libra. This cardinal grand cross has the same goals -- to promote equality, individuality with nurturing rather than fear and shame. In cardinal mode, we just might get it done.
Our society needs to live differently. Think differently. Act differently. So go vote if you're a US citizen and let's get started. Look what's happened in Brazil.
This Scorpio New Moon is connected to the other two water signs, Pisces and Cancer. With the North Node in Cancer now, the motivation is Life. With the New Moon energized by Jupiter at the last degree of Scorpio, we will have the ability to dive deep and expand who we are. Then we have Neptune in Pisces, enhancing our imaginations so we creatively and lovingly deal with our Shadows and our fellow citizens. Use art and beautiful words and music to change hearts.
