For the Scorpio New Moon, I spent the day in ritual. I smudged with Sage. Lit white candles throughout my apartment. Bathed in Epsom salt. Meditated. Created a new vision board, and set New Moon intentions. I was desperate for this time, looking forward to having a reason to indulge. My emotional energy has been low, and I have found it difficult to get grounded. New Moon magic has always been a natural reset.
As a woman, I believe that there is no better mark of true empowerment than when I honor my needs and do what is necessary for my emotional body. No longer do I feel driven for outward gain or success. Instead, I am focused on replenishing my inner foundations so that I can be even more intentional when it comes to external desires. This same experience is coming up in readings and discussions with many of my clients, reinforcing what I know to be true in my heart: what matters most is my well-being. Family, friendships, connection, love, beauty, truth, creativity, and all that is real, are what sustain my well-being. It would seem, then, that I am officially in pruning mode ready to trim that which is lifeless.
The Scorpio New Moon is an opportune time to reassess what needs to be released in our individual lives. It is a burst of energy on offer from the universe that will enable us to purge and surrender what holds us back, keeps us stagnant, or fails to fulfill. You can use this New Moon to bid farewell to a toxic relationship, family drama, or a job that does not appreciate you – whatever it is, just be intentional with your actions. You may feel bare and vulnerable in the process, perfect conditions for planting seeds that bring you life.
