1. Get sexy
The energy of the New Moon in Scorpio is very sexy. That’s because Scorpio is the sign that isn’t afraid of its dark side, or of showing itself in an unguarded moment. And of course sex works best when people forget themselves and stop worrying about how they look. So many of us grew up being told that sex is in some ways dirty, but Scorpio is the sign that will get down and dirty, and smile lasciviously as it goes. And we all have Scorpio energy.
2. Invest wisely
Financial partnerships also come under the New Moon in Scorpio. In other words, where your money meets, or works with, someone else’s. Some obvious scenarios include your salary, credit cards and debts as well as mortgages, wills and inheritances. If you want to start or finish a financial partnership, now is a good time for it (although the Full Moon in Scorpio is arguably better for finishing it off).
3. Make inner peace
Possessiveness and jealousy are also very much the Scorpio energy. Are you going through anything that involves such feelings? A power struggle with someone, say? This relates back to the Dark Side of Scorpio. Don’t reject this part of yourself; rather, use the New Moon in Scorpio energy coming through right now to make peace with it. The less you repress it, the less trouble it will cause you. This doesn’t give you carte blanche to turn into a raging jealous beast, though! Rather, it means acknowledging that you have these feelings, and dealing with them in a way that’s safe for all involved.
With all this Scorpio intensity, you won’t be surprised to hear that the New Moon in Scorpio is a really good time to deepen your relationships, sexual or otherwise. Just don’t let your attraction to someone – friendship or sexual – become too obsessive. A bit of an obsession with someone or something can be fun, but it can also go too far. Look at your actions, and if you know you’re being compulsive, then deal with it kindly. Commitments made at the New Moon in Scorpio usually have serious staying power.
5. Drop grudges
This is also the time to ditch emotional baggage and drop grudges. These are toxic and destructive, and the New Moon in Scorpio is the time to face up to them for what they are. Suspicions, guilt and thoughts of revenge are also somewhat easier to deal with at this time. Sort them out. Life is too short. And karma is too much of a drag. Oh yes, karma is also Scorpionic. Remember, the New Moon is ‘turning the corner’ time. Work on these parts of yourself once a year.
6. Make some wishes
For hundreds, maybe even thousands of year, wise women have made their desires and intentions known to the Universe at the time of the New Moon. They called it spell-casting. We call it New Moon wishing. The veil between the worlds is at its thinnest and it’s the time to let the cosmiverse know your heart-fet desires. Writing a list is the first step. It takes your dreams out of your head and puts it into 2D as you write it down (even if you write your list down on your phone or computer!) This is the first step towards it manifesting in 3D. There are other things you need to know about this process, including about the life-changing power of feeling the feeling of the wish come true.
