There's a reason these traditions are celebrated during Scorpio season. Scorpio is a sign known for its ability to simultaneously traverse the world of the living and the world of spirit. The Scorpion is acutely aware of the life-death-life cycle.
Like the serpent that sheds its skin, or the Phoenix that rises from the flames, Scorpio plays with death as fully as it lives life, unafraid to have a full experience of both.
While Scorpio comes with a difficult reputation, known for its emotionally obsessive nature and manipulative ways, everyone can benefit from Scorpion energy. It is an energy capable of exploring the depths of all aspects of living, even if it means dying a thousand deaths.
This New Moon gives each of us an opportunity to die a little death. Whether it is a harmful narrative that dies, or a toxic relationship, a death of sorts is in store.
In fact, Uranus, transiting the sign of Taurus, may very well alert us to exactly what needs to die. Whatever it is will be of the material world – that which pulls us into a false sense of security.
But with death comes new life. As the veil thins, a portal opens. We are in essence being presented with the chance and grace of being reborn.
This is where our dearly departed can help. What do we want to pass on to the spirit world so that we might be born anew in the world of the living?
Do not let this week come to an end without committing to surrendering that which drains you of life. Speak with your departed loved ones; ask them to remove what is dead.
Say goodbye to the old. Celebrate your ancestors. Use this present moment to connect to the spirit of your past as you prepare for new life in the future. Let it all die.
