New Moon in Scorpio | total commitment, nothing half-assed will work now, sudden encounters, using our instincts, arguments, road-rage, our immediate response required, huge change portal

Late last night the Moon (in Scorpio) met up with the Sun (in Scorpio) at 26 degrees. The Moon is trining (brakes off) Chiron in Pisces and inconjunct (adjustment) Uranus in Aries.

At the same time we are building toward a very challenging square, exact on Sunday, between Mars and Pluto - Scorpio's ancient and modern rulers.

Scorpio is uber powerful, so be prepared to commit to what you start now.  Actually commit as if your life depends on it ... maybe it does.

We either do whatever it is we are doing 110% or we don't do it at all. There is no middle ground with this Moon.

The trine to healing Chiron will help us get past any anxiety/hurt now - there can be acceptance of something that doesn't feel good. The trine also suggests we will be OK with whatever hand we are dealt now.

The inconjunct to a retrograde Uranus in fiery Aries could push us to respond immediately to unexpected events.

There could be fateful encounters that we look back on later and realize were life-changing.

If we are intending to dip a toe in the water, know that we could very quickly be in over our head - we are carrying alot of weight now! 

If you are a Scorpio or have strong Scorpio/Pluto in your chart you will feel this one. If you were born in the mid-to-late 1950's (Pluto in late Leo) you will probably feel it and since it is triggering last August's eclipse point many more people will feel it.

The more we have buried - the more there is to explode when things get shaken up. Yes, we are like a milkshake being made without a cover on the blender these days. This is very liberating energy if we can avoid going to extremes. 

Our best bet - maybe a talent/skill/passion something long forgotten or left behind, will surge to the top of these restless waters. Our worst bet - maybe this stirs up something not so pretty. 

What will work for us now? Our instincts. Not our intuition. This is more primal than that.

Tomorrow's exact square between Mars and Pluto - see more details about this HERE - is especially treacherous and in play now. This can trigger road rage, arguments, violence. Some of us will feel the pressure. Some people will have difficult relationship encounters. Some people will see this energy just pass them by.

Some people will have a rip-roaring argument (you could have felt this last weekend, too).

As far as this intense square's connection to this New Moon - it will give whatever is seeded now (and something is ALWAYS seeded) a powerful ambition. Maybe this is just what we need to get our ass moving. Or maybe this kind of mostly 'unacknowledged/subconscious' drive creates and moves ahead through destruction/manipulation/obsession. So we need to be aware of why we are doing the thing we are doing now. We don't want to hurt other people to get what we want.

There is the potential for substantial change here. Just stay honest and above board. Keep grounded. Stay aware of where you are and who you are with.

Today's New Moon in Scorpio is an excellent time to commit (Scorpion energy is fixed and committed) to goals that express the positive use of Scorpio energy.

Plutonian Scorpio learns and grows through loss. We go down into the underworld, and in the end, it's not so much about what we have brought back with us as it is about what we have left behind ....

There is a "quality over quantity" depth to Scorpian energy. It rules the 8th house of intimacy - of other people's values, other people's money. Here is where we take the time to understand other people's motives.

It's through the constructive traits of Scorpio - focus, resourcefulness, passion, probing, deep perception - that we experience true intimacy. We merge with other people physically and materially.

Scorpio is our only fixed water sign. It's potent energy for making deep changes.

As always New Moons are excellent times to plant seeds with our intentions - everything starts life in the dark after all.

Setting intentions for "Scorpio stuff" (or the stuff ruled by the house that holds 26 degrees Scorpio in our natal chart) during a Scorpio New Moon can be very powerful. With this year's awkward connection to change-making Uranus the old adage "be careful what you wish for" seems appropriate to think about this year.

NEW MOON INTENTIONS

These intentions can include (list courtesy of astrologer Jan Spiller) - empowerment, change, crisis skills, self-mastery, sex, soul mates, financial partnerships, avoiding power struggles, secrets, psychology, charisma, restoration, forgiveness, obsessions, compulsions, strength, loans, debts, taxes, inheritances, contracts, revenge, jealousy and guilt.

AFFIRMATION TIPS: get into a calm, centered frame of mind - always make affirmations from a  positive (meaning certain) space - write your affirmations down by hand in script, speak them out loud - then release your attention from these things knowing that your intention is known.  

Know these things are already yours.
