Scorpio New Moon November 7, 2018 - Rebirth from the Depth

The November New Moon falls exactly on Samhain, one of the most important Celtic festivals of the year. It concludes a strange and difficult astrological phase, and signals a new beginning from the depths of our self...

Half-Half

Samhain is often associated with Halloween/ All Saints Day/ Day of the Dead. However, from an astrological point of view, Samhain takes place only on November 7th; when the sun has passed through exactly half of its time in Scorpio, and the power of letting go and transforming is greatest.

Without Borders

November is the end of the year; it is time to part with what has happened and prepare for winter. It is also about acceptance for the cycles of life, and an awareness for the ancestors, and death. In the time of diminishing light, the rational separation of living and dead is lifted for a moment, and spirits and visions penetrate more easily into this world.

Light and Matter

At a higher level we can understand now that we also dream in the waking; that "life" and "death" always belong together. Our body is matter, dead; only our life spark, our life energy, which is limited and which begins to incarnate in matter at the moment of conceptions, enlivens it. When we lose an arm or a leg, we are still alive, still the same soul; only when the inner fire of life goes out, we are dead - in the form we had in this lifetime.

Share the fire!

At Samhain, people thought of their ancestors, but they also lit the fire for the new year: In the upcoming darkness the light shines all the brighter. When the sun is dimming, we can find the fire within ourselves and share it with others.

Deep roots

That the New Moon falls on 15 degrees Scorpio, Samhain, is extremely rare. This Moon marks something very deep, and stirring. Today we have lost the awareness that many things develop over a long period of time before suddenly becoming visible, like a plant that first forms its roots and only then sprouts. At the moment we are experiencing, socially, politically and ecologically, the consequences of decades of abuse and overexploitation of human and living resources.

More clarity

Right now, in the darkness, at the end of Venus' retrograde, and at the end of Jupiter's year in Scorpio, much is coming to light. Jupiter changes into Sagittarius one day after the New Moon... Much of what was still unclear around the New Moon will be illuminated in 3 stages: end of November, end of December, and mid-January.

Old knowledge

At the same time, the new moon darkly illuminates the extremely rare harmony of Jupiter, Chiron and the North Node in the late Water signs. We can draw from the deepest depths, from a well whose shaft goes back thousands of years to another time... Things have not always been the way they are today. The view of the world, of being human, of our place in nature was not always as it is today.

A lot of feeling

The moon in positive aspect to Neptune brings even more mysticism, dreams, and compassion. At the same time, so much emphasis on the Water signs also opens an access to suffering, and distorted emotions. This moon is strong, but also subtle. It may bring some emotional undercurrents. Stay centered on the intention to let go of negative baggage and remain anchored in the world around you. The magic is there when you choose to see it!

Care

Pluto and Vesta, the Holy Flame, are in positive aspect to this moon. Trusting your feelings without losing yourself in them can put you on the right track and focus you on what is really important. The North Node of the Moon in Cancer, and Venus and Ceres together also point to a lot of love and care (though the square/opposition to Uranus also shows possible disturbances/shocks in nature or for women/children as a result of the new moon).

From the 8th Jupiter will be in Sagittarius for one year, the mood will be expansive and optimistic. The time around the new moon gives us the emotional foundation to steer this expansion in the right direction. Happy New Moon!

Skorpion-Neumond 7. November 2018 – Aus dem Dunkel neu geboren

Der November-Neumond fällt genau auf Samhain, eins der wichtigsten keltischen Feste im Jahreskreis. Er schließt eine merkwürdige und schwierige astrologische Phase ab, und signalisiert einen Neubeginn aus den Tiefen unseres Selbst…

Halbe-Halbe

Samhain wird oft mit Halloween/ Allerheiligen/ Tag der Toten assoziiert. Allerdings ist Samhain astrologisch gesehen erst genau am 7. November; dann, wenn die Sonne exakt die Hälfte ihrer Zeit in Skorpion durchlaufen hat, und die Kraft des Loslassens und Umwandelns am größten ist.

Ohne Grenzen

Im November geht das Jahr spürbar zuende; es ist Zeit, sich von dem zu trennen, was passiert ist, und sich auf den Winter vorzubereiten. Es geht dabei auch um Akzeptanz für die Kreisläufe des Lebens, und ein Bewusstsein für die Ahnen, und den Tod. In der Zeit des abnehmenden Lichts ist die rationale Trennung von lebend und tot für einen Moment aufgehoben, und Geister und Visionen dringen leichter in diese Welt ein.

Licht und Materie

Auf einer höheren Ebene können wir uns zu Samhain klar darüber werden, dass wir auch im Wachen träumen; dass „Leben“ und „Tod“ immer zusammengehören. Unser Körper ist Materie, tot; nur unser Lebensfunke, unsere Lebensenergie, die begrenzt ist und die im Moment der Zeugung anfängt sich in Materie zu inkarnieren, belebt ihn. Wenn wir einen Arm oder ein Bein verlieren, sind wir immer noch lebendig, immer noch dieselbe Seele; erst, wenn das innere Feuer des Lebens erlischt, sind wir – in der Form, die wir in diesem Leben hatten - tot.

Teile das Feuer!

An Samhain wurde der Ahnen gedacht, aber auch das Feuer für das neue Jahr angezündet; in der anbrechenden Dunkelheit scheint das Licht umso heller. Wenn die Sonne sich zurückzieht, können wir das Feuer in uns selbst finden, und mit anderen teilen.

Tiefe Wurzeln

Dass der Neumond dieses Jahr auf 15 Grad Skorpion fällt, Samhain, ist extrem selten. Dieser Mond markiert etwas sehr Tiefgehendes, Aufwühlendes. Wir haben heute das Bewusstsein dafür verloren, dass viele Dinge sich über lange Zeit, entwickeln, und erst dann plötzlich sichtbar werden, wie eine Pflanze, die erst ihre Wurzeln ausbildet und erst dann sprießt. Im Moment erleben wir sowohl politisch als auch ökologisch die Konsequenzen von jahrzehntelangem Missbrauch und Raubbau menschlicher und lebendiger Ressourcen.

Mehr Klarheit

Gerade jetzt, in der Dunkelheit, am Ende von Venus‘ Rückläufigkeit, und am Ende von Jupiters Jahr in Skorpion, kommt viel ans Licht. Jupiter wechselt einen Tag nach Neumond  (!) in Schütze. Vieles, was um den Neumond noch unklar war, wird in 3 Stufen erhellt werden: Ende November, Ende Dezember, und Mitte Januar.

Altes Wissen

Gleichzeitig beleuchtet der Neumond mit seinem dunklen Licht die extrem seltene Harmonie von Jupiter, Chiron und Nordknoten in den späten Wasserzeichen. Wir können aus der tiefsten Tiefe schöpfen, aus einem Brunnen, dessen Schacht durch Jahrtausende zurückreicht in eine andere Zeit… Die Dinge waren nicht immer so wie heute. Der Blick auf die Welt, aufs Menschsein, auf unseren Platz in der Natur war nicht immer so wie heute.

Viel Gefühl

Der Mond in positivem Aspekt zu Neptun bringt noch mehr Mystik, Träume, und Mitfühlen. Gleichzeitig öffnet so viel Betonung auf den Wasserzeichen auch einen Zugang zu Leiden, und verzerrten Emotionen. Dieser Mond ist stark, aber auch subtil. Er bringt emotionale Unterströmungen mit sich. Bleib zentriert auf die Absicht, Negatives abzuschließen, und bleibe verankert in der Welt um dich herum. Die Magie ist da, wenn du auf sie achtest!

Fürsorge

Pluto und Vesta, die Heilige Flamme, sind im positiven Aspekt zu diesem Mond. Deinem Gefühl zu vertrauen, ohne dich darin zu verlieren, kann dich auf den richtigen Weg bringen, und deinen Fokus darauf richten, was für dich wirklich wichtig ist. Der Nordknoten des Mondes in Krebs, und Venus und Ceres zusammen deuten ebenso auf sehr viel Liebe und Fürsorge (allerdings im Quadrat/Opposition zu Uranus auch auf Störungen/Schocks in Natur oder für Frauen/Kinder in Folge des Neumonds).

Ab dem 8. wird Jupiter ein Jahr lang in Schütze sein, die Stimmung wird expansiv und optimistisch. Die Zeit um den Neumond gibt uns ein gutes Fundament von Gefühlen, um diese Expansion in die richtige Richtung zu lenken.

Cancer Super Full Moon January 1st/ 2nd 2018 - Dream Weaver

New Year’s Super Full Moon is like a big cosmic gift. At the beginning of Capricorn season, it reminds us of dimensions far, far beyond sober, matter-of-fact realism. What is "reality", really? What motivates you to work hard? This Moon highlights the emotional fabric that holds things together. It’s a blend of the practical with the dreamy, the deep, and those ties that bind…

Water Power

This Moon is part of a lucky, truly magical, constellation in the water signs. The Moon, Neptune, Jupiter, and Mars are weaving a backdrop where everything seems possible. You'll have vision, courage and stamina to follow your gut and take a step toward your dreams. Expect intense, profound emotion, realizations, and lucky breaks in the next two weeks. At the same time, you should have enough grounding with a lot of planets in down-to-earth Capricorn.

The Sea-Goat's Secrets

Capricorn itself is a deeply mysterious sign. Its true glyph is a goat with a fish tail. It combines two opposites, mountains and the sea, earth and water. Seen this way, Capricorn and Cancer have more in common than we usually think. So this Moon is an omen, actually. At the very beginning of Saturn's stay in Capricorn, at the very beginning of the year, it shows that there is a mystery waiting for us in the next three years, not just hard facts, hard work and career.

Our Backbone

Any Moon on the axis of Cancer/Capricorn has a big impact on us, because that axis represents the self, as conditioned by upbringing and social standards. Cancer/Capricorn are connected with the parents. Typically, there’s both caring and disciplining, unconditional and conditional love, from the mother/father figures in our lives. Expect inner or outer conflicts along these lines. The Moon stands alone in Cancer, with several planets opposing it. This can bring loneliness, sadness, or simply, moods and tantrums. Be ready to give your inner child a helping hand, but don't let yourself go. That time is over.

Elder's Keepers

If your parents have troubles, or are elderly, this Full Moon can bring a crisis point that forces you to set your priorities. You may need to decide whether you take charge, or whether career, money, or other “official” concerns demand all your attention in the next two weeks. If you have children, it may also be about them. Or things may play out the opposite way: the obligation you feel for family gets in the way of your adult life, your career, your life! Then, of course, you can realize how much of it is an obligation, and how much it's a cherished and vital part of your life.

2018... It's a Kind of Magic

This Moon is just the beginning. The first half of January brings some very special constellations. Venus is travelling close to the Sun for the whole time, infusing love, sociality, and fun into the first days of the year. On the 9th, we get a super potent conjunction of Sun, Venus and Pluto. This supercharges relationships and business partnerships with a huge blast of energy. Then, there's a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in Scorpio happening connected to that, too! Profound sexual and romantic experiences are possible, deep commitment, romantic or businesswise, and big opportunities. Enjoy but beware of greed, obsession, and the need to control partners.

Sweet Escorts

This Full Moon is special for another reason, too. It's the first Moon with Saturn in Capricorn and may shed a light on what we can expect in the years until 2020. We see a lot of planets in Capricorn, that have been escorting Saturn into his new domicile. The Sun, and Venus; Mercury will follow on the 11th. These planets are no "malifics", they make this Saturn cycle much more personal than the last one (which coincided with the collapse of the Eastern block 1989/90). There will be deep and profound changes in the next 3 years, but we can use social networking, harmony, communication, and shining our light, to mitigate the harshness.

No More Drama

With all this powerful energy in the first two weeks of 2018, this Full Moon is a reminder: don’t sacrifice your emotional happyness, your family, your real feelings. In the upcoming years, the pressure will mount to achieve, and for many people, just to make ends meet will be more difficult. We get a strong nudge here that this is not the whole story. There’s deep reservoirs of strenght and magic available, and a lot of this is loyalty to feelings, the people you love, and the land you live on. There's so much more to life than just paying the bills... Connect with this power!

Happy Full Moon everyone!!
