"Scorpio brings tidings of hibernation; its frosts seal the doom of red and golden leaves. It has become thus the symbol of death." Dane Rudhyar, The Pulse of Life
We all know the stories about the Dragonslayers -- St. George, Perseus, Archangel Michael. They battle to slay the dragon. For they see the Dragon as Evil. They see the Dragon as Death.
There are other ways to meet the Dragon, to meet Death -- the way Bilbo Baggins riddles with the great dragon, Smaug; the way Ged/Sparrowhawk riddles with the Dragons of Earthsea. This way entails respecting the Dragon. This way sees the Dragon as the guardian of vast treasures, deep Wisdom. To gain these treasures, you only have to answer the riddles of Life poised by the Dragon.
Scorpios can use either approach to their own Dark Dragon. And on Scorpio New Moons, we're all Scorpios! So how will we meet the dragons of our own inner darkness? Repression or integration. Your choice.
On new Moons, we get to begin again. Each new Moon offers us a chance to explore and make conscious the energy of its sign. This Scorpio new Moon offers us the chance to face our inner dragon and answer the riddle: What needs to die in you so that life can be transformed? Only you can find the right answer. But you have to dig for it.
Scorpio is the sign that confronts us with the task of transformation. Since Scorpio is a fixed water sign, it deals with old emotions that are stuck and causing old reactions, old biases, old emotional hurts. These emotions can be destructive to our well-being, but they're so much a part of us that we take them for granted. If you're born a Scorpio, you've come into this lifetime to deal with a backload of old emotional wounds (perhaps from other lifetimes - or this one) that need to be purified and transformed.
