NEW MOON IN SCORPIO
Finding Purpose Beyond your Fear
October 27th, 2019
This New Moon in Scorpio brings with it an initiation of change that could lead us towards our deeper purpose in life. This change may be disguised though; It may take the form of something you would rather move away from than towards..
Let´s explore the evolutionary potential held in this Lunar Cycle..
Remember Your True Self
The Sun and Moon in Scorpio, Inconjunct Chiron (retrograde) in Aries and opposite Uranus (retrograde) in Taurus
In each of us lies a divine spark awaiting to be lit up, to be felt and paid attention to. Our world and our sense of connection to it has been, for many ages, defined solely through a lens of outer external meaning. The careers we choose, the social hierarchal statuses we attain and the truths we play out uphold the nature of this reality. These personas and roles we fit into, are mere reflections of masks we put on in order to align with a collective truth, but for most of us it is not an authentic reflection of a deeper self. These set of astrological alignments are pointing to a pressure arising within us to explore and discover the depths of our true self.
The cycle of Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn continues to bring the impulse to the surface that is ultimately forcing the breakdown of these personas and false selves that we subscribe to. This can manifest like a deep need for change or as a life crisis, whichever way these themes present themselves a message is trying to come through; Let go of the past identities and fears associated with them, embrace the change and dive deep into the unknown to find out the truth of your inner calling or destiny.
Uranus’s opposition to the Sun and Moon challenge us to connect with the deepest part of what makes us feel life is worth living? We all hold within us a creative intelligence that seeks to awaken through us.
We are living in a time where listening to the call of this inner spark is becoming more difficult to ignore. The heavens above hold the memory of paths we and our ancestors have travelled and they hold the fate of the journey we have chosen to walk and embody in this lifetime. With Chiron’s inconjunct to the Sun and Moon we are being called to step outside of our fear and comfort zones and into the unknown to begin discovering our true selves.
Balance Your Power
Mars in Libra Square the North (Cancer) and South (Capricorn) Nodes, & Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn
This energy alignment suggests to us a challenge in moving past old fears and psychological barriers we inherited from earlier parts of our lives. When we look to the social and environmental conditioning of our collective past and the values formed around them, we can easily be reminded of a world that defined meaning and purpose from a place outside of ouselves. As a result a natural void manifested itself as our daily routines as they lacked deeper meaning and connection to what is really true for us.
The cycle of Mars squaring the nodes will prompt us to see that we are undergoing an internal activation that is leading us to break down old social ideals, expectations and bargains we have made in order to sustain a life that essentially was formed out of an outdated self-identity.
We might find ourselves with this alignment feeling emotionally polarised as we swing between the old and the new. This patterns suggests to us that we can feel a loss of direction as we fluctuate between the old and the new. The purpose here is to integrate the lesson of the past into the new. As mentioned above this alignment is pointing to the ongoing development of how we are reshaping our sense of identity and part of this includes re organizing our, values and beliefs.
Unveiling Your inner Truth
Venus and Mercury trine Neptune in Pisces and Chiron (retrograde) in Aries, Jupiter in Sagittarius Square Neptune in Pisces
The alignment of Neptune squaring Jupiter brings with it a continued sense of re-imaging truths and perceptions, that we have internalised, that separate us from living an authentic connection to our true selves. We must begin with individuating ourselves from the collective perceptions of what is truth and the value associated with it.
‘’Who looks outside dreams, who looks inside awakens’’. Carl Jung
Venus and Mercury trining Neptune suggests to us that we can hold the potential to explore the origins of our creative spark. When we separate ourselves from searching for meaning in the external world we give ourselves the opportunity to know and define the experience and the value it brings for ourselves. Being present with the moment, allows us to tap into the unifying field of information, it is in this inner space, we can become awakened to the inner realms of our own true self. This process requires patience and discipline, as we have to catch ourselves wondering off into the many distractions we have around us.
Unveiling our own truth requires us to merge inspiration and responsibility. This New Moon speaks to the journey into the underworld to discover the realms within us that will illuminate what inspiration ignites us to take charge of as we begin to create a life of meaning and purpose.
New Moon in Scorpio – Finding Purpose Beyond your Fear
“All men should strive to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why.” – James Thurber
Keeping our fears at bay gives them so much power over us. We give our power to those fears by allowing them to control our choices. You see, avoidance takes a lot of effort, it means not doing anything that could possibly lead to that thing we wish to avoid. And the worst part of it is that we actually live with that fear so close to us by doing so, so close that our very purpose begins to revolve around holding it at bay.
Our world reflects this process. Our fears are highlighted by the media and the solution is offered, to hold it at bay. Not to face it, investigate it, to integrate and embody what comes from that process but to run from it, to control it, to avoid and distance ourselves as much as possible from the object of our fears.
The fear of failure, of intimacy, inadequacy and rejection, the fear of the future and ultimately of death.. Can you see how we avoid them? Can you see how you hold them at bay? Can you feel them inviting you to face them? What would happen if you did?
Fear gives us a purpose, the purpose of survival. Our purpose becomes the avoidance of that fear. Our purpose becomes to survive. By holding everything at bay, to keep haunting our unconscious and driving our choices, holds us locked into survival consciousness. Fear consciousness. And the only way out is through! To move towards the fear we hold within us, to examine it and to understand its grip on us!
If we wish to find our deeper meaning, to find our purpose beyond survival we must face what scares us. We cannot connect to the true purpose of our life without first facing our shadow. The integration of our shadow, of our unconscious compulsions and the drive to hold on to the familiar is the very process behind finding our true purpose and destiny.
There is a purpose waiting for you to show up, a fulfilment of your place in the world, an embodiment of your inner truth. There is an alignment with being in the right place, at the right time with the right people. To get there your choices have be rooted in your inner truth, not the one you have been conditioned to accept. That means following your unique path, risking failure, exposure, inadequacy and rejection, it means showing up, realising that you don’t have forever, not putting your life off but living it NOW while you still have an breath in your lungs!
You are always on the threshold of change; how you approach it will determine your future. Every choice you make is either avoiding fear or embracing love, choose love!
