The Start of a New Lunar Cycle!
On October 28, the New Moon will be in Scorpio. This Moon will be located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. A New Moon marks the start of a new Lunar Cycle, as it is in the Moon’s first lunar phase. During this phase of the Moon, the lunar disk is invisible to the naked eye. The Moon is very important in its impact on the human body and our mental health. It begins its journey to a Full Moon as it will appear first as a tiny little crescent, which will get bigger and bigger, day by day.
The Magnetic Effect of the New Moon!
The New Moon, just like the Full Moon, exerts a strong gravitational pull on the elements, including the human body. The human body, after all, is about 80 percent water. The Moon is believed to work its mischievous magic by somehow disrupting the alignment of water molecules in the nervous system. Researchers believe that sleeping troubles are intensified during the time of a New Moon. This Moon’s magnetic effect, according to science, could be bringing heightened emotions to the surface. It brings about a time of calmness and balance, while also bringing energy and acceptance that anything can be accomplished.
A Time to Explore our Shadow Side!
While a New Moon is in Scorpio, it can be loaded with new chances to grow and multiple opportunities to succeed on various fronts of life. You may excel in everything you do, if you are sincere and patient. Prepare well and proceed confidently towards your goals. Hard work can help you turn destiny in your favor. With the New Moon in Scorpio, we are given a chance to explore our shadow side. Don’t get too worried because we all need to integrate our shadow within us at some point. The Scorpio New Moon can sometimes pack a sting, though, so be prepared for emotional impacts that could make you feel a little off-course, reckless, or dangerous.
Bring Calmness Into Your Space!
Today, your wishes and desires can be very strong. Since there is likely quite a bit of energy present on this day, it’s best to find a way to bring calmness into your space, so that you can harness the energy to your benefit. Take a few cleansing breaths at a quiet time in the evening, light a scented candle, and chill. This is the time to write down and release what is getting in the way of the experiences. The New Moon reminds us that we can always start fresh, and that there are infinite possibilities awaiting us at all times – if only we stay open to them.
A Time to Be Yourself!
This is a time to be yourself! Say no to things that don’t work for you, and sing an enthusiastic yes for the weird things that do. If something sounds too good to be true, trust your instinct. If the news is coming from someone who has been eccentric before, don’t even waste your time. Give your true self to the world and those around you. Now that you love yourself, it’s time to begin helping others find the highest form of self-love of their own. Understanding what you want and where you want to go is crucial to being happy and finding meaning in life.
Friendships – Good and Bad!
Shallow relationships and friendships will not satisfy you. A shallow friend doesn’t really care for you. To that person, money is what they are looking for and if you have a lot of it you’ll probably have lots of shallow friends. Good friends are good for our health. They keep us mentally and physically strong. If anyone stands out in your memory as someone you’d like to know better, reach out. Developing and maintaining good friendships takes effort. The enjoyment and comfort that good friendship can provide makes the investment worthwhile.
Smudging, Affirmations and Lists!
The Moon has its phases and so do our individual wants and needs. This is why it is a good practice to rededicate your list of intentions each month when another New Moon cycle returns for a visit. Incense and smudging herbs will help you cleanse the air and your body for the ritual. Sage is particularly helpful and it has long been used by Native Americans to clear a space of negative energy while inviting positive feelings. After smudging, use a notebook and write down an affirmation statement, such as, “I accept these things or something better into my life now for my highest good and for the highest good of all concerned.” Below this affirmation, begin writing down your desires. As the month continues, keep track of your progress. Journal if you like or simply remain mindful of your list of intentions. During the month, when an item on your New Moon list comes to you, do not merely cross it off of your list. Take the time to rewrite the list in its entirety and eliminate the manifested item from the listing.
