RIP + Tan: New Moon in Scorpio

If you follow our monthly series with astrologer Danielle Beinstein you know that each New Moon presents a fresh opportunity for spiritual growth and emotional reflection. While last month was all about making sense of our relationships, this month’s New Moon is more about working on ourselves. This is a chance for us to pause and look honestly at our own darkness, and our ability to be vulnerable to the truth. By digging deeper now, Danielle explains, we’re paving the way for a more conscious and honest future. XXJKE


It’s easy, given the speed at which we live, to get lost in the details, in what we can physically see, what’s tangible. But so much of life is energetic. It’s what’s left unsaid, what’s exchanged in the spaces between. This New Moon in Scorpio—which is conjunct with Mercury and trine with illusory, ethereal Neptune in Pisces—asks that we peek behind the veil. Scorpio is a penetrative sign, peeling back the layers, piece by piece. Scorpio does not suffer fools gladly. It sees what others are unwilling to see, what lurks within and behind the shadows. It understands that it’s in our depths that we find our wholeness and discover true intimacy. Supremely focused and directed, it’s not interested in anything less. In short, for this sign, intensity is the name of the game.

Thus this New Moon offers us a chance to come home to ourselves, to reconcile our light and our dark with the understanding that to be alive is to be entangled. Building self-trust, and listening to our gut, is a vital process. Are we willing to accept our darkness, our shadow? How comfortable are we with our own vulnerability and with others’? Are we taking things at face value or are we trusting our instincts, listening within?

Let’s take some time to journal, to pause and reflect on these questions. Our future selves will thank us. After all, the more self-awareness we have today, the more conscious our choices will be tomorrow.

"CAPRICORN new moon || Have you chosen your mountain? Capricorn is the goat, steadily climbing upwards towards its goal, lightening its load as it ascends. Wherever we have Cap in our chart is where we have to exert effort, where we experience limits and structure, where we must overcome. This New Moon, conjunct Pluto (deep transformation) and square Uranus (the lightening bolt) asks that we work with our fears as we journey onward. Venus is conjunct Saturn, which can deepen our feelings of insecurity and self-doubt. But take heart. This is all in service to mastery. Capricorn deals with integrity, karma. Are we in alignment (Capricorn rules the skeletal system, metaphorically and literally) as we take action steps in the direction of our dreams? Or are we stalled, petrified? We have everything we need inside of us. The key is to take the next step, whatever it is, and to put one foot in front of the other, while releasing the need to know, just exactly, how it will all pan out. And if it scares you, beautiful. How else are we supposed to grow and evolve?" Danielle Beinstein
