Here are all the details you need to help you harness the power of this magnetic New Moon, along with some tips for manifestation – because who doesn’t love to tap into New Moon magic?
The Astronomy of a New Moon
The New Moon is the first cycle of the eight moon phases.
Once a month, as the Moon moves along its orbit, the Sun and the Earth have the same elliptical longitude from our vantage point on Earth.
The effect? The light of the Sun hits the back of the Moon, and the side facing the Earth goes black.
During a New Moon, the Moon is not visible from Earth. For a moment, the sky is completely dark as the Moon gets ready to start its next lunar cycle. Then, as the Moon begins to move along its orbit, we see a sliver of light.
New Moons Are For New Beginnings
While Full Moons represent the culmination of events, New Moons represent the beginning of a new cycle.
In traditional farming practices, the New Moon is a time when the ground is most fertile and wet. Farmers plant their seeds on New Moons as the moon’s lunar gravity will pull water up, giving the seeds the nutrients they need to grow.
Likewise, we can use New Moons as a time to reconnect with our hopes and dreams, to plant fresh seeds for our own growth during the next lunar cycle.
New Moons are an invitation to set an intention and to ask for what we really want. They provide opportunities for growth and expansion – all we have to do is look inwards and get very clear on what seeds we want to plant.
And this is the key to manifesting on New Moons: clarity of intention.
Our choices are often so influenced by the external world and what we think we should be doing. We need to really connect with our hearts and intuition to understand what we really want.
Scorpio New Moon: A Time For Healing
That’s one of the reasons this New Moon is extra-potent. Because it’s happening in the sign of Scorpio – and Scorpio is all about diving deep.
Scorpio is a fixed water sign, and it’s considered to be the most emotionally intense, focused and transformative sign in the Zodiac. With the New Moon happening in the sign of the Scorpion, this is a powerful time to reflect on ourselves and our emotions.
Scorpio represents the archetype of death, rebirth and transformation: going to the dark places, conquering the unknown, and rising like a phoenix from the ashes.
And this Scorpio New Moon is asking us to look inward and get really honest with ourselves. To really explore the depths of our emotional connections.
Are you being nurtured enough by yourself and the people you love? Are you getting the emotional depth that you crave?
When we tap into the powerful energy of Scorpio, we can look honestly within ourselves and gain clarity on what we really want.
After all the intensity of the year, this New Moon offers us the opportunity to do just that.
Find a quiet space and explore the depths of your emotional world. And emerge with new clarity for the kinds of seeds you’d like to plant on this potent New Moon.
Manifestation Rituals For This Scorpio New Moon
1. Take a Cleansing Bath
Scorpio is a water sign, and the Moon is ruled by water. With the New Moon in Scorpio, a cleansing bath can help us detoxify ourselves, physically and energetically. Draw a bath of warm water and infuse it with Himalayan salt, rose petals, Lavender essential oil and your water-safe crystals. Light a candle and enjoy the cleansing energy of your New Moon bath.
2. Write Down Your Intentions
When we’re working with manifestations, writing down intentions is key. Think about Scorpio themes of emotional healing, intimacy and financial prosperity. Get a special notebook or journal for your New Moon & Full Moon rituals, visualize your intentions, and write them down as if they’re already happening.
3. Meditate On It
Once you’ve written down your intentions, it’s a good practice to sit in meditation and really visualize them. The key here is to focus on the way that you will feel once your manifestations come to life. Fill yourself up with the gratitude for your goals, and recreate the emotions you’ll feel when you reach them.
No matter what you choose to manifest with this Scorpio New Moon, try to stay connected to your inner truth. This is a very emotionally expansive time, and this New Moon is here to support you fully as you plant the seeds for your healing and growth.
