Explore Your Dreams: Scorpio New Moon

by Cathy Pagano November 04, 2010 08:56 PM EST
    The Scorpio New Moon, occurring on November 5th at 9:52pm Pacific time and on November 6th at 12:52 Eastern time, is very powerful this year because it sits alone in the sky.  It makes no major aspects to other planets, and so we are left alone with ourselves to dive deep and explore the scorpionic themes of death and rebirth.  The new seeds we plant must gestate in darkness for a while.

    With the Sun in Scorpio, we’ve reached the death aspect of the cycle of the year here in the Northern Hemisphere.  And the truth is our culture has a hard time facing not only the concept of death but its reality.  Death is viewed as ‘Evil’ by Western religions, and perhaps because of this attitude, we have created a culture that is killing the world. 

    What we are afraid of fascinates us. Why else could Hollywood sell all those stupid horror movies that leave horrific images imprinted in our soul’s vocabulary?  How could we allow our corporations to poison our food, the air, the oceans and waters all in the name of progress – and profits?

    Why do we fight death in all the wrong places?  

    We do not take death as our advisor, as don Juan taught Carlos Castaneda to do.  We do not ask our death to give us strength to live fully.  We do not say “Give me liberty or give me death!”  Western culture has cut death off from life, unlike the ancient Goddess religions which knew that life and death and rebirth are part of the life cycle.  When we reject the cosmic laws of our human nature and deny the place of Death in Life, we find ourselves living in a meaningless world.  When that happens, the worst of us comes out. 

    That’s what Scorpio’s work is all about – the struggle to let go and let things die; the struggle to release old emotional wounds that keep us from transforming our egos and connecting with the Self.  That’s why Scorpio is such a powerful and intense sign – Scorpio deals with stuck and festering feelings that have turned into the dragons and horrors of our lives.  That’s the work we all must do at this time of year – to release what no longer serves our lives.
