November 3, 2013 ~ Lunar Phase Reflections ~ Eclipsed New Moon in Scorpio

Nov 3 ~ Eclipsed New Moon at 11 degrees, 13 minutes Scorpio

Feel all of the energies moving in your body, heart and mind.  There are forces deep within that are driving the movement of these energies.  They are wanting to find a new balance through a new authenticity of expression and being.  You may feel pushed and pulled, stressed (in a good or bad way), on edge, charged, anxious.  This is because the evolutionary call toward expansion and true fulfillment is in dramatic focus at this time.  "BE ALL YOU CAN BE" is one way to describe this inner calling.  And this force is hitting up against old patterns of limitation and wounding that need to be cleared, balanced and healed before you can truly move forward into the expansion that beckons you.  The sign Scorpio asks for nothing less that COMPLETE TRANSFORMATION.  Death is required and seen as a natural part of evolution.  An ego death must occur.  A surrendering to the inner Self is called for, and then the true POWER can be tapped and used to create new relationships, new creative opportunities, new material foundations, new everything.

Many new doors are opening, and these are doorways into much deeper alignment with your soul and soul purpose.  It is an intense time that rewards hard work and effort towards personal transformation with a deep wisdom of the creative process and the deep wisdom of LETTING GO.


So at this time, some or all of the above may be highlighted, either the negative side of these matters or the positive.  At the negative end of the spectrum there might be FEAR OF DEATH/CHANGE and a deep anxiety over what cannot be quite understood or controlled.  These fears lead to secrecy, manipulation and abuse of power in order to control what cannot be controlled.  The positive end of the spectrum reveals deep resources of COURAGE, HEALING ENERGY, POWER and INTIMACY WITH SELF AND LIFE.  The positive end is a letting go into the larger forces of life and becoming their guide and co-creative partner.

For the next two weeks, face those fears and listen to the information they have for you.  Let go of what wants to die in and around you, and prepare for REBIRTH.  What is real and what matters can never truly be lost.

Key Astrological Alignments

* Nov 1 ~ Uranus Square Pluto (Evolution & Revolution!)
* Nov 7 ~ Jupiter Stations Retrograde in Cancer (Expansions Under Review)
* Nov 11 ~ Mercury Stations Direct in Scorpio (Communications and Plans Move Forward)
* Nov 14 ~ Neptune Stations Direct in Pisces (Ideals, Inspiration, Creativity and Spirituality Externalized)
* Nov 18 ~ Full Moon in Taurus (Completions/Culminations...for "good" or "bad")

The astrological symbolism is intense!  It's all about working through deep layers of fear, limitation, wounding and unconsciousness in order to emanate new levels of authenticity and alignment with soul and soul purpose. The core of you is speaking loud and clear "It is now or never!"  Well, that's just me being dramatic, but it could FEEL this way to you.  The times now can feel like "Do or die."  The new moon in Scorpio, however, is giving us a much needed burst of energy and resource from the depths of our being.  We have the power to heal the past, wake up and begin creating our futures from right where we are.

Tarot Reflections ~ 2 of Swords (Peace)
With these extremes pushing and pulling at you, you don't want to go off the deep end.  You don't want to do anything rash or negatively impulsive.  Spirit never feels urgent or coercive.  It never yells or tries to force you to make a move.  Spirit acts through LOVE, which is patient, gentle, kind, and ALWAYS LETS YOU CHOOSE.  So, don't give any fuel to the extremes that may be raging inside.  If you cannot decide or don't have clarity, WAIT.  PAUSE.  Let the insight and the intuition make itself felt and known.  Be fluid, and relax into the peace at the center of the storm.  When you stop trying to force a resolution or a direction, the answers will come.

  1. Wow! Nick! I am on a mountain with my cat addresssing ALL the things you mentioned there. I found both validation, acceptance and patience in your message. All SPOT ON!!! Thank you so much!

  2. I was just telling someone that in tarot, I'm the hangman right now, hanging without a clue other than I know I'm supposed to hang, and the next card is the death card, and I can't "think" of anything that needs to die, and that's the hard part . . . waiting for those things to emerge and then let them go. The point is these things are "unthinkable" haha after the death card waits the art card (alchemy) where I will take what little I have left after the death card and create magic with it, like the Magician before incarnation.

  3. Thank you for the feedback, Eve. The hardest thing (cause it goes against our deep cultural imprinting) can be to "hang out." I love the Hanged Man!!! It symbolizes those times when we come into deeper alignment with ourselves (and break/transform limiting patterns and beliefs) through surrender and receptivity...and embracing GREAT MYSTERY. Those are the times we let ourselves be guided back into the flow of our own river of life, where we then find ourselves creating anew and waving our magic wands:-)
