The New Moon is the moment when Sun and Moon come together to start a new lunar cycle, which sets the tone for the following four weeks. This month it happens at 19-20 degrees of Scorpio, which connects to the following Sabian Symbol: “A woman draws away two dark curtains closing the entrance to a sacred pathway”.
Sun and Moon conjunct Mercury, and are on one of the branches of a Yod, or Finger of God. We have Uranus retrograde in Aries at the focal point, and Jupiter in Virgo on the other arm. The Finger of God configures a bifurcation and can be a point of destined reversals of fortune and the opening of a totally new phase in one’s life. This one shows a destined time when curtains suddenly part and you walk into a path that you have been before in previous lives. It involves short and long distance trips, communication and languages, reconnecting to where your ancestors come from and their culture. There could be an opening of a spiritual path and psychic abilities. Uranus is in opposition to Juno in Libra, which is highlighted by the presence of Venus, Lilith, and the North Node. Mars is also about to enter this sign. Even though relationships are not the focus here, they can unfold in the process. You may reconnect with loved ones, people you knew in previous lives, or even to a soul mate.
This interpretation of the Scorpio New Moon relates to and is reinforced by today’s color of the day, Malaga, and the ones of the last couple of days, Aurora Red and Persian Red. It is also in synch with the Message for November, which talks of a parting of the curtains, a return to purity, and the color white. In the picture of the opened curtains, we see the four alchemical stages represented: nigredo, albedo, citrinitas, rubedo. Out of the darkness we have gone through a process of purification by the shedding of light or whitening; the yellow; the red, connecting to the color of the month, Claret Red; and arriving at the purity of self again, represented by the color white. Then we are ready to embark on a new journey as a path opens up and reveals itself to us.
For this week, watch out for impulsive communication and the use of hurtful words.
