This Scorpio New Moon happens on Monday 28th October 2019 at 4 degrees 24’ of Scorpio, at 1:38 PM Queensland time Australia.
By Francoise /Frankie Alloin Monnereau
This Scorpio New Moon is very impactful on your life for many reasons, and you don’t have to be a Scorpio to benefit from this New Moon, you have Scorpio somewhere in your natal chart.
Every New Moon is a time of inner union, when the Sun and the Moon are exactly conjunct at the same point in the sky. At this time we have them together at 4 degrees 24’ of Scorpio. It is about the feminine and the masculine, the Yin and the Yang, the reunion and the reintegration of the two, since their last pairing, which was the last Libra New Moon of October 9th.
The Sun and the Moon in Scorpio is an intense connection into your emotional wellbeing, into where you go to feel things that others don’t see, it is a very private energy. This is a passionate energy, ambitious, it is ready to get things going, to make something happen, when that Scorpio energy knows where to go, when it has a goal, when it has an intention. Scorpio energy is how you merge, first within yourself, but also within others. It is how you share yourself through intimacy.
Esoterically Scorpio is about your sexual energy. Scorpio is about the issues of life, death, transformation, regeneration, purification, transmutation of your sexual energy, of your emotions, of your attachments to other people’s money, or other people’s resources.
And Scorpio is a very mysterious sign, being to do with the withdraw of energy, and transformation of that energy into something completely new. It is the chance for you, to become that Phoenix rising.
Scorpio is associated with transformation, but in fact, Scorpio is associated with three types of archetypes.
It is commonly known as being connected to the scorpion, which is the Scorpio that will sting you, that wants revenge, that will get back at you for something… The second energy is the Phoenix Rising, which is the energy of deep transformation, going through the dark night of the Soul, but very determined to rise up… And then the third archetype of Scorpio is the Eagle, and the Eagle now has wisdom, the Eagle sees things from a higher vantage point, and understand what is worth. It is emotional energy, and it can see into truth.
So together, Sun and Moon are sitting at 4 degrees, and “4” is a beautiful esoteric number, based on building, based on harmony, based on the 4 elements which are all present in your body. You are Earth, the Air is your mind, the Fire is within your heart and your drive, and of course the Water is through your sexual energy.
So the number 4 is highlighted here, and the month of October resonates with the number 13 (10-2019), which reduces to 4 as well.
4 is the number of work, and getting invested in manifesting, so you want to create a foundation with 4, you want to build something, you want to create security. 4 is also the number of family and grounding, and creating something that really stands the test of time.
On the big picture, the vibration of “4” is responsibility, work and accomplishment. So this is a time to make solid foundations, (financial, physical or mental), for your life. But also exercise and take care of your body, your physical home.
Scorpio is such a strong flavour at this time, and will be for up to December. Pluto is going with great momentum since October 3rd, when he went Station-Direct, and he is staying strong all the way through the month, because he also rules Scorpio, therefore he rules this New Moon. And at this New Moon we have quite of a bunching up in Scorpio, with Sun-Moon-Mercury-Venus all sitting in this energy.
Scorpio is always very intense, about deep feelings, it is very good for focus. Every time we get a concentration of planets around Scorpio, it is a really good time to look at any feelings or emotions, that you have stuffed down over the years, that you have repressed. So this Scorpio New Moon is a very good time just to let them come into the light, and release them. This New Moon can represent a new emotional beginning for you.
So see where 4 degrees of Scorpio falls in your birth chart, because a New Moon is always an excellent time to set a new intention. And when you set that new intention, ideally it needs to be conditioned by the House-Area of life in your natal chart, where 4 degrees of Scorpio is falling. Because your intention is principally conditioned by the House-Area of life, rather than by the sign. And very often this intention will manifest, if not before, certainly at the 6-month point, when we get a Full Moon in Scorpio.
So with the bunch of planets in Scorpio, there is great intensity, great focus, great tenacity, and a potential to let go what no longer serves you.
So there is lot of healing that is taking place at this New Moon time. Scorpio is about taking something poisonous and purifying it. Using that poison which is an ego attachment to form, and to the material plane, and letting go of that, learning how to be disciplined, retaining your sexual energy to allow the healing process to take place in you.
And when you do that, you are in a place where you can face directly all of those fears that have been repressed, or suppressed. Scorpio is so deep, it is so emotional, it is so intense. There are so many people on the planet who prefer not to deal with their emotions, this is the old paradigm reality that is breaking down right now, particularly with Pluto (The ruler of Scorpio) and Saturn getting ready to conjunct in January 2020.
So there are lot of changes that are happening at this time, and we all have to learn to go with the flow, and surrender to those changes. Scorpio is all about power, so if you find the courage, your power, to look at what has been stopping you from really empowering yourself… perhaps you have been focused too too much on resources outside of yourself giving you power, or wanting to use those forces outside to control others, then you have zero control inside of you. So that is why you feel so insecure, that is why you are so afraid of dealing with Love at a deep deep level.
The louder conversation at this New Moon, is Uranus at 4 degrees of Taurus, in an exact opposition to Sun-Moon at 4 degrees of Scorpio. So see where 4 degrees of Taurus falls in your birth chart.
The New Moon-Uranus opposition is about your resistance to change, about what you are hanging on tight. You don’t want to give up what you think is real, so it is creating fears, phobias, insecurities… all kinds of anxieties that Scorpio brings up in you.
Uranus moves very very slowly, he is staying 7 years in a sign, so he is not going to move out of Taurus until 2026. But whichever House-Area of Life, he is falling in in your natal chart, he wants to shake up any staleness, any deadening routine, anything which has become really predictable. Uranus wants to shake you up to a new state of being, and when he is directly opposing the Sun and Moon, he is wonderful for connecting you to your Aumakua, your superconscious, your higher self.
So in fact, Uranus in exact opposition to the New Moon is a great blessing.
Uranus first of all, is the change agent, it is shocking, it s surprising, it is unpredictable…”expect the unexpected”, because Uranus is like lightning, it is electric energy, it is epiphany when things happen out of the blue.
So this New Moon, is the right time for deep confrontation with your emotions.
So wherever you find the 4 degrees of those signs, in your natal chart, there is a tension of energy Taurus-Scorpio, there will be psychological and emotional volcanoes ready to erupt.
So how do you deal with that? If you are using this energy with an awakened state, you can learn to take the very powerful, deep, mysterious, esoteric energies of Scorpio, that are very emotional, and that emotion is what drives your body, and it is the sexual energy aspect.
If you are retaining your sexual energy, you can channel a lot of this tension to great amounts of creativity, tapping into higher mind, the wisdom of your Aumakua, psychic abilities… this is Uranus shooting his energy into the land of Scorpio, basically blowing up that volcano, so that you can face what needs to be faced.
And you know that when a volcano erupts, it creates something new from deep down, within the Earth, that you have been trying to suppress, and the pressures gotten harder and more forceful and then it explodes. On the general view, this is about learning about your values around money, around resources, around possessions, around people. Most of all with Taurus and Uranus, at the time of the New Moon, it is about how you deal with your own self-worth.
Where do you get your self-worth from? Is it perhaps coming much from the lower vibration of Scorpio, which is deceptive, secretive, manipulative, controlling over every situation … because it is so afraid of losing control, and actually feeling its emotions?… but the better way to use Scorpio energy, is through allowing the feeling and facing of your emotions, and learning with Uranus how to change and adapt to your emotions. You can actually transform yourself, and use your emotions to carry you forward, in terms of a great release.
There could be lots of letting go, lots of tears flowing at the time of this New Moon, and great change can come out of nowhere. Like you had plans to do this, and Boom!!! they are going over there… So there is great oscillations at this New Moon time between resisting change, but change has to come, resisting transformation, but transformation must occur. Something in your life, connected to the Scorpio-Taurus sectors in your natal chart, is dying, and you have got to let go of it gracefully
Uranus is a fourth dimensional planet, very linked to the superconscious, and you can get very fast downloads of information at this New Moon time. Uranus speeds everything up, and you can get lot of epiphanies, insights, seeing things from a different point of view. Uranus is very future-oriented, he always wants to bring the new, and he is the antithesis of Saturn, which is the tradition, the routine, keeping the status quo… And Uranus is the Maverick who just wants to break all of that up, and do things in a new and very different way.
Uranus is the planet of shock and disruption, and this New Moon-Uranus opposition brings an awakening, and it feels like a freedom. If you have been working on something intensely, it has been emotional and deep, and it changed you permanently (Scorpio), this New Moon can set you free through this opposition to Uranus, that says… “I am done”… “That chapter is complete”… “I don’t want to go down that tunnel, and this emotional experience ANYMORE!”… “Now I am ready to awaken to a new way of working with emotional underworld”.
Uranus is the planet of revolution, very much connected to breaking down, in order to break through to something better. So at this time there is a very powerful revolutionary urge. An urge for people to come up from the street to protest, because they see a better vision, they demand that their voice is heard in a bigger way, and very much demanding more equality as well.
So at this New Moon time, watch for sudden opportunities, surprises, the unpredictable… so expect the unexpected!
Uranus, brings the message that you need a new definition of revolution and freedom at this time.
So at this New Moon time, your definition of freedom is changing. Freedom is about to be who you are, and to feel safe to emotionally express, and this New Moon is highlighting that desire. You don’t have to morph yourself in oder for things to be okay, you can just be here in the moment, and think about the release of judgment, of oppression, of those shackles of society that immediately come off… and you are turning everything over. So this is what this Scorpio New Moon is really about.
So the opposition New Moon-Uranus is about the quality of leading with Soul, and leading with vision, and looking forward, and to open your heart to the possibilities. And to realise that this possibilities come to you when you are here present, in the NOW, in the MANAWA.
Beautiful 4th Hawaiian principle, “MANAWA – Now is the moment of power”. So it is not about modifying your experience today, so that three days from now you will be ready… No it is about looking for it in the sense of being here NOW, with what you have NOW, and your forward motion is going to be so meaningful.
So during this New Moon time, stand in your power, own your space, it is not about conquering everything all the time, it is about your presence in the process, your MANAWA-YOU.
This New Moon subtly suggests that you redefine yourself, your journey, your mission, your value, what you do value, how that is working, if it is working for you… she is going to ask you to do all of that. So your sense of identity, your sense of “Who I am”, “Who I have been”, “Who I am supposed to be over there”… is getting remoulded. Your mission statement in life may be getting a rework during this time, and that can involve what your relationships look like, what your work look like, where you are living, so you may be finding this from this New Moon.
So at this time set your intentions, sit with the quiet, because it is so fertile energy at a New Moon. In the quiet, in the dark, and in the unknown, it is where you get most of your answers.
Uranus is about the channeller, lots of downloads, so you may be finding that you are getting huge hits of information about how you want to form that path moving forward. So this New Moon’s flavour is about “enoughness”, the enoughness of the present moment. I hope that this New Moon brings the feeling that you are okay where you are, even if you are sick, or something is not working the way you want it to work. You, your Soul, your inherent being, you are enough, you are okay.
At this New Moon time, Mercury is going very slow, and will be Stationary Retrograde on November 1st. So all the planets in Scorpio travelling together, they are helping you get to something deeper within you, especially within relationships patterns, power dynamics, anything around codependence, where you have used emotions in a healthy or unhealthy manner.
The strong focus on Scorpio is asking you to dive in, to what needs to be healed, so that you can feel powerful with it. It is also to understand that sometimes with Scorpio, it is a water sign, so you have absorbed energies from other people. Scorpio, on its down side, is associated with the misuse of power, with abuse, taking on other people’s energies… and this have potentially harmed you.
So at this New Moon time, part of the Scorpio transformation is the undoing of that harm, and when you tap into that, you are the Phoenix Rising, and you rise up to become the Eagle, who sees the whole situation from a new stand point.
Just after the New Moon, on November 1st, Mercury goes Station-retrograde at 27 degrees of Scorpio. He will redirect on November 21th, but he will come out of his retrograde Shadow zone on December 9th.
When Mercury is in Retrograde, he makes you think more deeply, you are more contemplative, you go back over things mentally. However, because Mercury is linked to contracts and decisions, when he goes in retrograde, it is less than perfect for decision making, because it always suggest an undoing of some kind, such as the detail was not correct, there is often some kind of backtracking when Mercury goes in retrograde.
So at this New Moon time, with all of this strong dynamic energy, just be an observer, stay out of the trick or the drama, and if you want to be part of a situation, try and do it in a detached way, like if you are a witness. This way you won’t be affected by the chaos and experiencing negative emotions.
A good exercise to do everyday in the morning as you wake up, is to set the tone of the day by using a positive affirmation.
Since the challenge of blindness in my right eye, this is what I say everyday to feel positive and at peace within myself …I SEE CLEARLY, I NOW CREATE A LIFE I LOVE TO LOOK AT.
This is a simple way for working energetically, by creating a bubble of positivity and peace, that can ripple out to the world, and that gives you a sense of being a unique spark to the collective consciousness as well.
So create your peace, bliss, joy bubble everyday, and you really will change your world. I can hear the first Hawaiian principle IKE calling here…“IKE – The world is what you think it is.”
You can change your life for the better. You already have the tools within you to do so. These tools are your thoughts and your beliefs.
A lot of what you normally say and think is quite negative and doesn’t create good experiences for you. You have to retrain your thinking and speaking into positive patterns if you want to change your life. An affirmation opens the door. It is a beginning point on the path to change. In essence, you are saying to your subconscious mind: “I am taking responsibility. I am aware that there is something I can do to change.
Every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation. All of your self-talk, your internal dialogue, is a stream of affirmations. You are using affirmations every moment whether you know it or not. You are affirming and creating your life experiences with every word and thought. You need to pay attention to your thoughts so that you can begin to eliminate the ones creating experiences you do not want in your life.
If you feel that Life is not giving you what you want in your world, then it is certain that you will never have the goodies that Life gives to others… that is, until you change the way you think and talk, because your thoughts create our experiences…IKE.
So think happy thoughts, it’s that simple. And it is doable. The way you choose to think, right now, is just a choice. You may not realize it because you have thought this way for so long, but it really is a choice. “IKE: the world is what you think it is”…now… today… this moment… you can choose to change your thinking. Your life won’t turn around overnight, but if you are consistent and make the choice, on a daily basis, to think thoughts that make you feel good, you will definitely make positive changes in every area of your life… So think IKE.
At this Scorpio New Moon time, there are other some strong conversations between the planets.
The New Moon, Sun and Moon, is not only in opposition to Uranus, but she is also in a difficult Quincunx conversation with Chiron at 2 degrees of Aries.
This Chiron-New Moon conversation is about how to be yourself, to be courageous, to be independent in intimate relationships with others, and how you bring your power into some of these relationships.
Another energy to explore, is Mars, because Mars is the co-ruler of Scorpio with Pluto, therefore the co-ruler of this New Moon as well.
Mars is in Libra, and he is not strong there. He is what we call in astrology, in Detriment, meaning weak, because in Libra, he is in the sign opposite to his home sign of Aries. In Libra, Mars has to be in conversation, negotiate, diplomatic, he sits at the desk, but he really prefer to be off running and in action.
So during this New Moon, Mars at 15 degrees of Libra is the diplomat, and he is in an exact challenging Square conversation with both, Saturn at 15 degrees of Capricorn, and Pluto at 20 degrees of Capricorn.
So this Mars masculine energy, that is looking for harmony and peace, is basically having his Will overrun by another outside authority, or outside power. So there could be a lack of peace at this New Moon time, there could be a lack of being able to take the actions you want to take, because of outside forces. And you could feel very passionately about what is not happening.
The Square Mars-Saturn really activates your responsibilities and patient progress, so at this time of the New Moon, you may feel energetically weaker, because essentially Mars wants to forge ahead but he is placed in Libra, his sign of Detriment… and the Square from Saturn is telling you to really look at balancing things out, emotionally, energetically, to persevere through any frustrations. You have been strengthened from within, that is what Saturn does.
If situations get heated, you want to make sure you release all that pent-up energy, into something that is safe… like screaming your head in a pillow, instead of throwing your words against somebody else… you don’t want to direct any frustrations at others.
So at this New Moon time, it is important to stay in control of your emotions. Being proactive is the key, you got to redirect this energy into physical workouts, really exercise more vigorously, and do something that gives productive results. So at this time, be poised, be ready, breathe deeply, stay centered. Saturn is always about timing, so be patient, don’t push things too hard around this time.
Mars in Libra is also in an awkward Quincunx conversation with Neptune in Pisces.
This can suggest aggression, chaos and confusion. So this is a very good reason to pull back from any aggression during this time.
On the plus side, this conversation Mars-Neptune is very good however for inspiring your imagination.
And to help create a good balance and alleviate the tension of this New Moon, there is a beautiful conversation happening, that is Saturn in Capricorn Sextile Neptune in Pisces.
This conversation has been going on all year long, and is coming to a head again. So you have the beauty of looking at the divination arts (Neptune), looking at something that is beyond you, that is spiritual looking, focusing at your spiritual gifts, making your intentions for abundance real, because Neptune is all about expansion. And if you focus on those spiritual gifts, your financial flow will increase.
With Saturn-Neptune Sextile, you may also meet people who are out of the ordinary, or understand other dimensions, other cultures, in a new way. This is very much about galactic awareness, and it will pull you out of anything that feels stagnant.
Well there is another beautiful conversation, this time with Pluto in Capricorn, in a wonderful Sextile with Venus in Scorpio.
Pluto is about life, death, transformation, rebirth, getting to the truth, empowerment, leadership… so with the Sextile conversation with Venus, you feel exceptionally attractive, magnetic, passionate, loving… and companionship is emphasised here.
So if you are in a relationship, you will go deeper than ever. This is about Love knows no bounds, it is beautiful, the relationship can evolve profoundly, and sexual bonding is really enhanced with Pluto.
Other intimate relationships, such as friendships, partnerships, will be profoundly heart-centered, really uplifted, and you can really create some very deep healing here. Pluto always uncovers things that you have not seen, so it is time to know the truth, and with Scorpio around, you want to get to the real, honest truth no matter what.
With this Venus Sextile Pluto, sharing your feelings, is going to be a lot easier if you are both looking at what is actually the core truth. So at this New Moon time, it is very important to have those deep conversations.
So this New Moon opens the door to a long Scorpio moment. New Moons always last for 4 weeks in terms of their impact, but because we also have Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio, and Mercury leaves the sign of Scorpio on December 9th, and then Mars enters Scorpio on November 20th…so this is very important that you understand Scorpio.
Scorpio really helps you to respond to crises, very well, with clear thinking and action, So you want to take constructive risks with the Uranus-New Moon opposition, that lead to a new sense of empowerment. So don’t shy away from those.
At this New Moon time, you discover how to express intense emotions, because Scorpio is the most intense of all signs. And the way you express those intense emotions, is in a non-threatening way, so not overpowering others, or trying to take control of a situation. You really are capable at this point to just diving really deeply into a feeling that is profound, and sharing it in a loving way.
And you can also experience mutual empowerment with others, and it is wonderful because when others feel encouraged by you, there is a lot of healing, there is a lot of happiness, and it creates a dynamic of tremendous growth for everyone involved, that is based on Love and Joy, not based on fear or guilt.
This New Moon is an incredible opportunity to welcome self-mastery, discipline, and release fear. So listen to your guts, listen to your intuition, take advantage of this intense Scorpio energy around this time of the year, that is about shifting energies, about loosening up things, about being flexible, about accepting transformation, and understanding that it is natural to always evolve.
So this period running until the end of the year is an outstanding period to create A NEW YOU, and a new foundation for your life. The more you can just let the past go, the past that just seems so fixed and permanent and stuck, just let that go and use this as an opportunity to create something really new for yourself. And start to acknowledge the power that you have, as everybody else, as co-creator in your life. So use positive affirmation, intention through your day, use focus because Scorpio is brilliant for that, to create the reality you want to experience.
So I wish you an incredible Scorpio New Moon, definitively go discover who you are at Soul level, this can be done through an astrology reading, with me or another astrologer.
