Happy New Moon in Scorpio!
"The theme for this new moon is creating positive change out of challenging circumstances. Anything that has been a hardship for you and could be seen as a negative experience can be used as a powerful agent to shift into something new."
Does this resonate for you?
If so, thepowerpath.com suggests: "This is a new moon and will support anything new. Take the pieces of the old, whether an old dream, an old life, or challenging lessons, and use the power of those experiences to fuel what wants to emerge from the ashes."
What's emerging for me is setting the limiting beliefs and contraction that comes with EXPECTATION on fire. I've been releasing this all year and felt the pain of disappointment in myself and others due to expectations I held. This also causes me to miss the magic of the moment and of being fully present in the moment.
That's what wants to emerge...PRESENCE: the ability to be fully in each moment...and GRATITUDE for each moment, for each breathe, for each opportunity, for each person and their presence on this planet now.
Especially during this holiday season...
It's easy to get caught up in the joy of celebration this time of year, And yet, it can be overwhelming. Our boundaries get loose and we say "yes" to parties, events, and activities, we really should say no too.
The season calls us to "be out in the world" and yet during the transition from fall to winter, our bodies are called to "go within". This is the time for reflection, for looking back on the year and deciding what needs to be pruned and let go of so we can start the next season strong. It's a time of slowing down, and yet all around us, we are asked to speed up in a whirlwind of activity.
So this year, I'm going to do something different.
This new moon, about transforming the old into something new, inspires me to create something new from the ashes...this holiday season, instead of being focused on events, activities or obligation, I'm going to focus on what I want to emerge...Presence and Gratitude and a closer Connection to friends and family.
I'm not sure what this will look like, but here's what I plan to do.
With each activity, event, and tradition, I'm going to ask myself...
I'll let these values that I'm claiming today be a guiding factor in deciding what to keep and what to prune. That's the feminine fire way...finding the wisdom within first, to make a meaningful difference in our own lives and those that we love.
How about you? What will you take from the old and make new? What's calling to emerge from the ashes for your this new moon?
