New Moon in Scorpio
Blessings of Diwali
November 7, 2018
One of the most auspicious times is nearing; the only time when the New moon is a blessing in the Hindu culture. Hence, it may be somewhat intense, and the energy will be a push to many of us.
The new moon will enter Scorpio on November 7, 2018 at 11:02am Est and 8:02 PST, however about one half and hour before and after, the sun and the moon will conjunct, thus if you have something very important to complete this is the time to do so.
This new moon represents the last day of the lunar calendar for Hindus and it is named “Chandra Darshan” as it marks that before the light there is darkness. The actual light will begin on the 11th. However, since VPAT is based upon the lunar calendar, it is in the sign of Libra. Additionally, Venus is retrograding in Libra which is auspicious as it gives many of us a chance to be fair in all areas of life.
However, Diwali is the festivity of new beginnings and a new year for many Hindus. Also known as “Festival of Light”, Hindu homes will be adorned with lights and oil lamps. Poojas (prayers and rituals) are conducted to honor Goddess Lakshmi (Love and prosperity) and Ganesha (Wisdom and luck). Because many parts of India call their devotion to either Lakshmi, Durga, and some Parvati, all are honored; but mostly Lakshmi. Vivid colors, cultural costumes, art work made of sand, oil lamps, fireworks, social gatherings, and dancing is part of the festivities. Diwali officially begins on the new moon and ends 5 days later.
The New Moon signals a period of expression and autonomy. It’s time to question what your desires are. It is also a phase to take stock, getting rid of undesirable patterns of sentiments and any bad routines that keep you from gaining your goals and wishes. Additionally, blessings are available to take a chance at whatever that you want to make through the functions available. The influence will be focus driven and give energy to complete things that were unfinished.
The Scorpio energy is very demanding and determinate. It may might force challenges and be adversarial in order to be tougher than ever before. It’s like the Phoenix rising out of the ashes.
The new moon will give motivation to fly like never before. Scorpios and fixed signs will not disentangle the mystery and find the answers that no one ever could. Even though these are the inquiries that have sweltered the pages of history, the curtains will finally be drawn open. It’s time for improvements and recharging batteries. Do not fear the power of the new moon; allow and embrace everyone around you. Remember that Mercury, being in Scorpio, will also slow people down. Read more about my predictions of planetary inferences here, blog is soon to come.
Moon in Scorpio is not only about seeing your darker side, but being tolerant of the malevolent parts of us and purging ourselves so that our spirits can heal to help others like us through empathy and openness. We must go into our subconsciousness and find who we are to reach the plane of spirituality. Also, it enables us to go inside of ourselves and find out why people do what they do and to what end. Seek the deeper truth and don’t be afraid to change. You will have the opportunity to rise again through the fire which we call life.
When the moon is in SCORPIO, we become more comfortable to hidden or profound powers and our psychic probes may be triggered. This is a time for working to preserve emotional control, and for working on disabling internal obsessional judgments or desires. There can be a need for knowing behaviors and responses that keep you locked in power struggles.
This New Moon is most favorable for seeking assistance from your divine center and Higher Power to gently release yourself from inner negativity. Emotional Power is the focus and the physical power is the force.
My predictions for Scorpio’s for the remainder of the year:
A spike in romance is possible until the 20th of November. If you are single you may meet someone new. Your financial life should be getting better soon but spending wisely and thinking through major decisions will be beneficial in the long run. Keeping a healthy life style, such as proper diet and exercise, will keep you away from sicknesses. During November, through December, you may become restless as Mercury retrograde is still slowing you down. With patience you may find your health and financial structure will begin to rise. However, charisma will help you bring 2019 into a brighter and more positive outcome. Hence, expenses are high in December although they can be recovered by working hard and diligently.
The Moon in Scorpio marks a time of strengthened hunger and desire. People may be feeling more dynamic and more stimulating, as well as being forced and ingenious. In general, emotions at both ends of the spectrum are heightened and likely to vary quite a bit throughout this influence. Connections on a deep level could be made with members of the opposite sex with the Moon in Scorpio. Represented by the Scorpion, Scorpio possesses a secretive and penetrative nature. Feelings of envy and vengeance may arise, so special caution is needed to avoid altercations.
The Scorpio Moon can be a catalyst for power urges, which can often result in violence or even homicidal impulses. Remember that Scorpio has an apprehensive and mysterious nature. Avoid social difficulties. Beware of jealousy and watch out for the “Scorpio Sting”. Please remember to forgive and forget and be cautious interacting with the opposite sex.
Since moon in Scorpio represents Headstrong, Willful, Hot-Tempered, Brave, and Energetic, it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced. It is also my suggestion that you purchase a white candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil or sandalwood oil and chant the Psalm 39.
You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is dependent upon the clarity of intention. I have chosen 4 mantras for this year and two mantras for Diwali; perhaps bringing Lakshmi into your life could bring peace.

Please note I do not claim to be an astrologer, these are general propensities. The utilities of astrology are used as one element of Vedic readings – it embraces and incorporates transformable changes into sublime bliss.
I would suggest if you are a fixed sign, especially Scorpio or have Scorpio energy in your chart, you should consider getting an in-depth reading with me to find out where this energy is moving.
