This New Moon (Sunday 27th October) in Scorpio is opposite Uranus. This invokes unpredictable & shocking events or revelations, truths coming out of the woodwork. You may experience erratic energy, restlessness and impulsiveness. Perhaps as though you have forgotten something or having a sense that something is about to happen, but you cannot but your finger on it!
Uranus is currently retrograding in Taurus (and won't be going direct until January 202). Uranus retrograde in Taurus during this New Moon will see you feeling as though your boundaries & freedom is being tested, this perhaps may contribute to the erratic or impulsive energy, as in Taurus-like fashion, you try to bulldoze through any perceived restraints. The New Moon represents the end of one cycle, and the beginning of a new one. With the Sun conjuct the Moon at this time as well, could inspire you to make a fresh start. Identifying and stripping away things that are in excess or that no longer serve you. A spiritually driven time of questioning and reckoning in order to clear the energetic 'dead wood', making room for space, breath and inspiration. However, with the Moon opposite Uranus, this change, transformation or 'New beginning' you are preparing yourself for is likely to initially be erratic, chaotic and energetically electrically charged, spiking anxiety, impatience and abrasiveness. Particularly as within days we will have firmly entered the whirlwind that is Mercury Retrograde.
Change, new beginnings and transformations come at a cost. you go through a process of letting go and sacrifice. Giving up or letting go aspects of yourself, your ego, that are unhealthy, toxic and no longer serve you to your highest good or potential. That prevent you from being flexible and willing to flow with the energies of the Universe and trust in the Divine Plan. Awakening to new truths and remembering that you are a soul being having a human experience, to step outside of the box, the self, the ego so that you can realise, witness and experience the bigger picture, the immense wonder of the complexity of the Universe and all of the bonds and connections within it and your place within it. Equally as wondrous and powerful in your own right.
All this energy leads us into Mercury Retrograde, so you "New Moon, New Me" will see itself being trialled, challenged and put to the test. Mercury is known to bring delays, miscommunication, technology breakdowns and increase anxious and emotional energy (particularly in Scorpio; Water Element). Above all, Mercury wants us to follow its lead and S-L-O-W ... D-O-W-N. Allow yourself to integrate and process any lessons that have shown up for you recently and over the New Moon/Mercury Shadow Phase. If we allow it, this Mercury Retrograde could actually assist with intuitive methods of communication, particularly around the 31st October, as it is said the veils between dimensions/realms are at their energetically thinnest, allowing for easier communication with loved ones that have passed over, deep inner communication with the self, the shadow self and a magically (and emotionally) potent time for healing ancestral trauma. This Mercury Retrograde is also a good time to re-visit or investigate your emotional reactions that are provoked or triggered during communication, to better highlight or understand areas of trauma and healing. It is also a highly recommended practise during Mercury retrograde to re-visit, re-read and investigate any plans, proposals or contracts, particularly if you are unsure.
Over the next month you may experience a sense of being stripped to your core, anxiety and emotions peaking, with a sense of restlessness, impulsiveness and impatience. However, with all things that are born new, transformed and changed, time, patience and paying attention to detail will assist you in setting the foundations to your new path and boundaries!
I pulled two cards, a New Moon Message and a Mercury Retrograde Message.
New Moon Message - Patience
This card shows a beautiful angel holding a clock in the stillness of winter. her quiet, peaceful energy is telling you that it's time to release the old urgency and to look at things with a much clearer perspective. It is telling you to relax and let go of the single-minded desperation that's been driving you. don't try to force your will on only one option. When you think there's only one solution to satisfy your needs or to make you happy you are blocking the many other potential solutions from coming your way. let go of the anxiety and be flexible! Be patient, open and creative. Choose to be peaceful in the present. The Universe has more options than you may be aware of. Quiet your mind, broaden your perspective and let them come through.
Affirmation; I pursue my goals with open receptivity. I am patient and flexible, willing to receive in many surprising and imaginative ways.
Mercury Retrograde Message - Adjacent Possibilities
Sometimes the force of habit keeps you stuck and unaware of potentially healthier and happier choices at hand. yet every moment gives you the option to open a different door and take a different course - whether it's in your thoughts, behaviour, or major life decisions. This card is here to tell you that you have many options, and it's time to take a wider look at things. as you consider the many choices available, you'll feel more and more empowered and motivated to make the decisions that bring happiness, strenght and forward motion. In terms of your goals, this card could indicate unknown and previously unconsidered ideas. Be conscious, be aware and be flexible and willing to take new and different actions.
Affirmation; I am open and willing to take my life in new directions. I am becoming more aware of my many options for harmony and options in my thoughts and in all my choices each day.
