With so much happening in our skies right now, today’s new moon in Scorpio marks an important new beginning. Aligning in an empowering sextile to Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, this new moon is a chance to really get to the root of what is holding you back in life. You may have felt some uncomfortable emotions over the past couple of days, or maybe something from your past you thought you had dealt with popped up to stir you. It’s important to sit with these feelings and allow yourself to experience them.
A great activity to do over the next few days is to focus on integrating your shadow self. Make a list of everything that irritates you in others. Think back to the last person who brought out negative emotions within you. What part of yourself mirrors their behaviour? Can you forgive yourself for having that trait? Often when someone angers or irritates us it’s because they remind us of something within ourselves that we have furiously rejected or haven’t quite come to terms with.
Holding the smokey quartz crystal from last month’s BLUE Ivory Gloss box, meditate on the sacral chakra below your belly, just above the tailbone, and repeat to yourself, ‘I am sensitive, I am healing, I allow myself to be free from blame and guilt.’ Visualise the orange light at your sacral chakra expanding throughout your body, healing your emotional injuries. Fully accept yourself as you are.
Another activity you might find helps you if you’re not sure where to begin is listing the emotional reasons that you may be holding yourself back. Can you figure out where these beliefs stemmed from? Make a list of the people you feel are to blame and practise forgiveness, thanking them each in turn for an important lesson in your soul growth. Forgive with every fibre of your being. This is a great law of attraction technique as when you come from a place of forgiveness and gratitude you open yourself up to receive.
When you make your new moon intentions this week, have a real think about where you want to be this time next year. In order to get there, what parts of yourself do you need to let go? How can you bring this powerful, transformational energy into your world for the better?
Scorpio is all about deep healing, rebirth, the phoenix rising from the ashes, a snake shedding its skin. It’s also all about the power and money. The conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto happening just before this new moon is extremely symbolic. You can change your life for the better now, but only if you take a deep dark look at yourself and accept yourself as you are.
