The new moon is happening on October 25th at 6:48 am EST in the sign of Scorpio. Scorpio is intense and transformative, with a mysterious, yet magnetizing energy. Ruling the 8th house of rebirth, sexuality, and psychic energy, this new moon challenges us to get in touch with what we keep hidden.
With this new moon, we’ll also have a solar eclipse which heightens this energy, and opens up a portal for us to bring about radical transformation, aligning us back with our Soul’s mission.
New Moons are a time for manifesting. The darkness of the moon encourages us to think of what seeds we wish to plant, that’ll eventually sprout into reality. With a solar eclipse happening on the same day, the energy around this Scorpio new moon is intense and can have us questioning if we are on the path we desire to be.
In this article, we’re talking all about the new moon in Scorpio, the numerology significance, and 3 things that you can do to utilize this energy.
Scorpio is a fixed water sign that is secretive and keeps emotions hidden. Scorpio would rather intellectualize than show emotions due to the degree of power that emotions have on Scorpio. As a water sign, scorpio is fluid and intuitive, yet its fixed nature can contribute to stubbornness and a lack of flexibility, creating a dichotomous energy.
Scorpio is ruled by Mars in Vedic astrology, and by Pluto in Western astrology. Mars is a planet of courageous action, raw and potent energy, and sexuality. Pluto’s energy is tied to the unknown, rebirth, and power. It is a regenerative planet that enables healing on generational levels through the purging of old programs and belief systems installed in the collective consciousness throughout generations. Pluto leads to transcendence.
Scorpio rules the 8th house. Along with metamorphosis and the occult, the 8th house represents inheritances, taxes, and shared assets. The 8th house brings with it death and resurrection, making this new moon ideal for manifesting powerful transformations around what tends to hide in the dark like shadowed emotions, taboo beliefs, sexuality, finances, and our sense of power.
October 25th, 2022 reduces down to the number 5. In numerology, 5 represents freedom and change. The 5 energy opposes restriction and thrives with adventure. 5 is ruled by Mercury, which contributes to its profound communicative skills and intellect.
With that being said, this powerful new moon and solar eclipse energy supports us in going into the depths of our mind, all the way into the subconscious, to transform outdated programs and beliefs, and to free the hidden thoughts and desires within the depths of our Soul, to cultivate a space of acceptance of our heart’s desire, sexual nature, and inner feelings.
If your energy has been scattered, this is a period for you to call your power back, demolish the habits that have led to scattered energy or a misalignment with your Soul, and courageously transcend into an individual who uses the power of their mind, feelings, and intuition to manifest their desired reality.
Moon in Scorpio
When the moon is in Scorpio, it’s considered to be debilitated. However, our intuition is strengthened and we experience more clarity around our dreams and passions. What we’ve subconsciously repressed is easier to access, and we have the power to make major transformations in all areas of our lives, especially whichever house Scorpio resides in your natal chart. A Scorpio moon also supports the healing of blocked emotions and perceived limitations so that you can regenerate your authentic power.
How to Work With This Energy
1. Speak Authentically
Sometimes we refrain from saying how we truly feel or from expressing our genuine thoughts. There are many things we wish to say, but choose not to for various reasons. Sometimes it’s because we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, we may be afraid that if we say what we really mean we may be abandoned, or because we don’t have the strength or confidence to express ourselves authentically.
With the 5 energy combined with the Scorpionic energy, now is the time to find your inner power and say all of the things that you’ve let go unsaid. If there is anybody in your life who you feel like you can’t be your real self with for whatever reason, find the courage to show up authentically the next time you are with them. They may be surprised at your new found power. This is a season of rebirth. Free yourself from worrying about what others may think about you if you show up as your truest self. Speak your mind without the need to protect someone’s feelings, and give whatever emotions that have been repressed life by acknowledging them and transcending them into productive energy.
2. Break Generational Cycles with Inner Healing
Pluto has the power to bring major transformation when it comes to generational trauma. During this new moon, commit to doing the inner work in an effort to stop those unhealthy patterns that have been passed on from generation to generation. Epigenetics lets us know that trauma can be passed down through our DNA.
Think about what negative core beliefs have been embedded into you that cause you to repeat history. What beliefs have you inherited from your parents, what wounds have been passed on to you, causing you to stay stuck in a familial narrative that doesn’t serve you?
This can be trauma or negative beliefs about sex and relationships, finances, or having individual power. Are you stuck in a poverty conscious mindset, believing that there is a ceiling to what you can achieve or how much money you can have? Were you told that sex is bad and because of that have shame-based beliefs about it? Are there any fears that you’ve adopted that cause you to live in a fear-based reality? What is it that prevents you from breaking the cycle and changing your mindset about these things? How can you reframe your mindset and regenerate it into something more aligned with who you are?
Use the energy of this solar eclipse and Scorpio new moon to radically transform those outdated generational programs, and replace them with new empowering thoughts and beliefs that support you in living a joyous life, full of freedom and adventure.
3. Commit to Changing One Thing About Yourself Holding You Back
The theme of transformation is prominent during this time. With this new moon and solar eclipse, assess all of the things that you would like to improve about yourself, and then choose one of them that you feel that you can successfully work on shifting.
Scorpio keeps things hidden in the dark. With awareness, we can use light to transmute darkness. When you know better, you do better, so long as you choose to. Cultivate freedom from that one thing that has kept you stagnant and unable to move forward in the direction of your dreams.
What has held you back from following your passion? What has kept you stuck in the same place for as long as you can remember. What is preventing you from living a life filled with adventure?
For example, do you make excuses for the reason why your life isn’t what you’d like it to be? Do you find that you have trouble taking responsibility and grabbing life by the horns and directing it as you wish?
Maybe you’ve been wanting to quit smoking, but haven’t because you find that it’s the one thing that helps to regulate your emotions, and so you continue.
Whatever it is, make a commitment to alter the path that you’re currently on, and align with the path that you’ve been dreaming of walking.
Plant the seed of metamorphosis to become the butterfly that you’ve been waiting to evolve into.
The energy during this new moon is so intense. We might feel uncomfortable as we address what we typically keep hidden, but working through the discomfort will bring rebirth and relief. Sit with all of the feelings that come up and instead of shoving the dark ones back down, accept them, then transmute them into energy that can empower you.
