Work with the phases of the Scorpio New Moon Cycle to design the life you want.
Welcome to Scorpio aka Spooky Season.
They say this is the time of year when the veil between the worlds (earthly and spiritual) is the thinnest. It is a great time to meditate, practice divination, and focus on spirituality.
The days are now getting a little shorter and cooler. In NYC the trees are rapidly changing colors and dropping their leaves. Signaling it is time to prepare to go within. Scorpio represents determined and steady (fixed) energy focused on emotions, spirituality, and imagination. This Scorpio moonth we can work on our self-discipline to cultivate our commitments. I invite you to cultivate commitments to yourself. The more love and respect you offer yourself, the easier it will be, to commit to things you want to bring into your life.
The Moon Starts a New Cycle in Scorpio
The Scorpio 2022 New Moon is on Tuesday, October 25th at 6:49 am
Scorpio is the sign of sex, death, rebirth, and other people's money. Think inheritances and taxes. When Scorpio comes around transformation beckons. There is a strong ability to focus on things that will bring about change and discipline. Scorpio is also about financial partnerships, contracts, and obsessions. Scorpio focuses on deep emotional connections and relationships. On a downward spiral Scorpio is vindictive, suspicious, and deceptive. The symbols for Scorpio are the Scorpion for its dangerous sting and the Phoenix for its ability to be reborn from ash. The archetypes of Scorpio are the Mystic, The Alchemist, and the Detective. The tarot card associated with Scorpio is Death.
How can you develop self-discipline to get the things you want?

Yes Spiral Practice
Work with the energies of the moon, astrology, and tarot all at once. The tarot spread below is a SPIRAL practice. The first and last card connect one new moon to the next. Card #5 becomes card #1 in the next new moon spread.
What is the seed of the Scorpio new moon?
What do you nurture to grow at the Aquarius waxing moon?
What do you celebrate/forgive at the Taurus full moon?
What do you release at the Leo waning moon?
What is the seed of the upcoming moonth in Sagittarius? (use card #5 as card # 1 next moonth)
The best way to make your intentions into a reality is by dedicating time to them. Every new moon I set my intentions, do my tarot spread, and revisit it at least weekly. I reflect on where I was, where I am, and where I'm going. I find this introspection brings me clarity on how to move forward. It also helps with synchronicity because the Universe knows what I want.
