Work with the phases of the Scorpio to design the life you want
Scorpio New Moon 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.
Now that the days are getting shorter and cooler. In NYC the trees are 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 New Moon Season (moonth) we are invited to work on our commitments and purpose. To cultivate transformation. Consider cultivating commitments to yourself. To find purpose in your life. The more love and respect you offer yourself, the easier it will be, to commit to things you want to bring into your life.

Scorpio is Fixed Water - The King of Cups
The fixed signs are stationed in the center of their respective seasons. Fixed energy is stable and consistent. It has endurance and is persistent. If on a downward spiral it can also be unreasonable and stubborn.
The element of water symbolizes emotions (bliss, love, sorrow, joy, grief, disappointment), dreams, fantasies, healing, imagination, and spirituality. It has to do with the narratives that make up our feelings. Water sign energy is intuitive and sensitive.
Fixed Water is represented by the King of Cups in tarot. The King of Cups is perceptive and analytical, smart and sensuous, and craves deep connection on an intellectual and emotional level. He understands the ebb and flow of time and cycles of transformation and rebirth.
