October 27th, 2019: New Moon in Scorpio— Resolve the Root Issue
At a New Moon, you take the time to set a new intention. The goal is to change something about your life for the better, and to work on that for the next lunar cycle. With the New Moon in Scorpio, we work towards resolving emotional issues that keep us from participating in the present. There are certain memories that change the way we see things, because we are stuck in an old story and an old way of interpreting things based on that story.
When you catch yourself repeating patterns, you have to work to resolve the root issue. The goal isn’t simply to change the old narrative with a new one– that will land you in the same spot next year, trying to address the same issue. The real work is in identifying what memory or painful experience has got you caught in the past. In what places is your emotional body stuck?
Resolve the root issue now so you can move forward and join the present. Identify that issue today, and commit to addressing the past pain. You can take the next lunar cycle, 28 days, to work towards resolution. No need to try and let it go now. Today is simply for identifying and setting an intention. After, the real work begins.
