Scorpio New Moon - Deeper Understanding

"There is nothing makes a man suspect much, more than to know little, and therefore men should remedy suspicion by procuring to know more, and not keep their suspicions in smother."

— Francis Bacon

This Thursday's Scorpio New Moon (2:14 PM PDT 12° Scorpio) and the subsequent shifts of Mercury into Scorpio and Venus into Capricorn bring a strong demand to deepen the understanding of our individual perspective and how it affects our relationships to others. The shift of Venus into Capricorn is particularly significant because Venus will remain in Capricorn until March 5th of next year due to a powerful retrograde period from December 24th until January 28th. Venus is not comfortable in Capricorn, where the desire for comfort is challenged by cold restrictions and practicality. The retrograde Venus period is likely to be especially challenging if we refuse to let go of unrealistic expectations. The Scorpio New Moon and Mercury's arrival in Scorpio, encourages us to open the doors to honest communication that gets us down to the bedrock of our conflicts, disagreements, or challenges with others and will help us prepare for the retrograde Venus. The New Moon's opposition to Uranus signals a tendency for us to point to others as the cause of the restrictions, obstacles, and challenges that we face — instead of looking within to find the contradictions and conflicting motivations of our own positions. However, Uranus also offers creative, innovative, and inventive new solutions when we are willing to tell the truth. Ultimately, the biggest challenge that we face is defensiveness and suspicion. The Scorpio influences seem to encourage us to hold our cards 'close to the vest' but often, our inclination to keep our beliefs obscured or unexamined is because we aren't completely confident of the validity of those beliefs. We need to maintain our individual balance and find enough flexibility to allow for creative 'third way' solutions where everyone wins in some way or another. The early part of the week, under the waning Moon, may bring some difficult pitfalls and a tendency to overly idealistic aspirations which are not really informed by the realty of the 'facts on the ground'. There is significant uncertainty and some of our meandering thoughts don't give us the confident sense of direction that we are trying to manifest.

Optimism smooths over the rough edges on Sunday. We find support to take stock and survey the landscape. Rattled nerves predominate Monday's atmosphere. Emotions are bottled up and sharp tongues may lead to hurt feelings. There are tempting distractions on Tuesday. There may be a sense that there are things going on behind the scenes, leading to suspicion and mistrust. We're increasingly prone to blaming other for any restrictions we feel on Wednesday. Thursday's Scorpio New Moon may bring surprises or erratic behavior. There is a need for flexibility that is difficult to manifest. We're drawn off-balance if we feel compelled to go on defense. It isn't easy to respond meaningfully to the significant shifts that occur on Friday. However, the evening offers some room to explore the new environment. Saturday offers comfortable conversation and easier and more productive compromise. Making the effort to maintain two way communication will bear fruit in surprisingly productive and creative ways.
