New moon, new beginnings! It’s time to really get deep with our dark side. This doesn’t necessarily mean summoning demons and wearing all black – although optional – but it does mean the need for much introspection. So much of our lives are an effect of various external causes but retrogrades and new moons are great time to see how we can cause our own lives!
Venus has been in retrograde since October 5, 2018 and will be until November 16, 2018. Venus is the ruler of love, harmony and beauty. When it appears to be going backwards in the sky in relation to the other planets, you can bet there will be emotional turmoil in our interpersonal relationships. The twist, though, is that the conflicts are likely due to something within our individual selves that require tweaking in order for outward harmony to be restored.
Uranus, the planet of rebellion and change, has been in retrograde since August 7, 2018 and will be until January 7, 2019. It’s opposition to Venus right now is also adding fuel to our interpersonal and internal fires.
Neptune has been in retrograde since June 6, 2018 and will be until November 24, 2018. Ruling intuition, idealism and spirituality, it’s position in Pisces, a water sign like Scorpio, is only adding to the chaos of emotions that may be experience now. The think about enlightenment is that spiritual growing pains are very real. Self care is extremely important now.
Now for the astrological planet we’ve all be waiting for: Luna.
Scorpio lunar season means deep emotional intensity and insight. The moon already relating to the watery flow of emotions, it’s position in a fixed water sign only adds emphasis to the focus on where we are stuck emotionally. As Scorpio puts value on privacy, we should try not to focus so much on everyone else as much as our own emotional health.
Here is what the cards say we can learn from this lunar season:
