A new beginning, a new path, new choices, thoughts or feelings, new chances are offered to us starting with 28 October 2019 on the occasion of the New Moon moment in the Scorpio zodiac. It’s time to be present, to project positively, to start those actions where we truly find ourselves and to be ready to transform.
The detoxification capacity of the body is maximum on the day of the New Moon. Anyone who makes a rule of having a fasting day every time the moon is newwill benefit from many advantages in preventing ailments. Also this day is perfect to start a new activity such as the unlearning of bad habits. Often bad habits are the outward expression of inner energies that need only a new goal to become useful and valuable to us and to other people.
The night before the New Moon is a night of divine transcendence
and if we engage in spiritual activities we can achieve exceptional results that equate to the results obtained after a year of assiduous spiritual practice.
Because this new beginning to “establish” better in our being and to make the most of this astrological aspect is indicated to we do a short meditation of about 20 minutes, in period, 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after the it occurs, i.e. between 5:28 and 5:48.
sit on a chair with your back straight and your hands resting on your thighs with your palms down, we aim to completely relax our body, especially the muscles of the face.
It is necessary to feel the physical body abandoned and immobile. After we’ve done the “parking” of the body, we turn our attention inside the body, into the middle of the chest, and imagine that we’re adimensional at that level.
Throughout meditation, we aim to feel the complex influence of this astral moment, of the New Moon, when the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon participate in the “cosmic wedding”, by dividing the same zodicacal degree. Now the male and the female merge into a perfect unit.Due to the conjunction between the Sun and the Moon there is a special complementarity of yin-yang energies in nature.
If we now seek to find a perfect agreement between our will and God’s will, our consciousness will go through exceptional spiritual transformations that will lead to the acquisition of the state of harmony and inner peace.
Through the state of consciousness cultivated by various Abheda Yoga techniques, certain unfavorable astrological transits can be transcensed.
Apart from these methods to be practiced systematically, it can be said that the destiny of men is written in the stars and it is relatively difficult for the ordinary man to manifest free will, independent of the influences of celestial bodies.
Night that precedes this phenomenon of the New Moon, in our case the night from 26 to 27 October 2019, is celebrated in the tradition of oriental spiritual under the name Shiva Ratri.
The night before the New Moon is a night of divine transcendence, and if we engage in spiritual activities we can achieve exceptional results that equate to the results obtained from a year of assiduous spiritual practice.
During this astral moment, it is good to have a easy nutrition or even practice Anaharin – black fasting only with water,to reduce the pace of daily activities, and to aim to orient ourselves inwards, being aware that this night is particularly effective for the practice of meditation, it gives us the opportunity to achieve in this way, important spiritual progress.
Aspects specific astrological
Monday, October 28, 2019 – 05:38, Romanian time, marks the moment of the New Moon in Scorpio at the rank 04:25 and activates the house I in the map of this astral moment. The verb A SE TRANSFORMA/A ELIMINA specific to the nature of Scorpio is put in the service of the main themes of house I, namely personality, vitality, constitution, house of life.
House I defines who I am
The Sabian degree of the new moon says this: “A young man holding a lit candle in a devotional ritual” – There are times when you have to learn to keep the light of your ideal on. No matter how bleak the conditions of life may seem and no matter how hard it may seem to follow your path, you must learn to keep your meaning and overcome obstacles with the light emanating from your own soul. The opinions of others may, in appearance, or may appear obstacles, but if your ideal is clean and truly valuable, then you will find resources in yourself, to go far into the light. (Sabian symbols –Adim).
The ideal to which this Sabian degree refers is, in this case, to find out the truth about our identity and the way of expressing this identity which, only when it truly manifests itself and in a pure and authentic way its purpose and purpose, becomes integrated into the divine order. So driven by a call above us, guided by what is holy and sacred, we go on the road to discover ourselves.
House I hosting this new month indicates the type of experience through that we will best discover who we are as unique individuals, indicate the most significant way to release that set of potentialities that exist in a dormant state within ourselves.
Every experience we will experience deeply and totally during this 2-week period will help shape the image of ourselves, about our impact in the relationships in which we are involved, will reveal to us those facets of our personality that have either been hidden or repressed precisely to see now beyond them.
We will discover what defines us but also what no longer represents us in a fairly direct and perhaps difficult to digest for some of us, because old relational patterns, mental schemes taken from the family, toxic habits or abusive behaviors , wrong mentalities, programs on the emotional level, we will all face now, they are the elements that come to show us what or who we’ve been so far.
Now, however, they come to the surface from a call to the purification of being and the goal is to “empty” them to access god’s overflow within us, turning us into a clean and holy vessel worthy of what it contains.
Moments like this, when the New Moon falls into the first house of heaven, there are special moments when we are given the chance of self-exceeding our own limitations, either imposed by others or set unconsciously by us, are moments of profound transformation and death of aspects of ourselves that demand purified.
One of the symbols of Scorpio is the Phoenix bird
which is reborn from its own ashes, a symbol that excellently describes man’s ability to transform himself in a total and complete way, an essential transformation without which the rebirth of the new man would not be possible. And here the poet Rumi reminds us:
“Die, die, don’t be scaredRumi
of the death of what is known!
If you die against all that is fleeting
you will become eternal.”
The intensity of Scorpio as energy and mode of manifestation may seem quite harsh to some of us because it calls us to profound transformation, to quite transient eliminations, to difficult separations and in addition, the appearance of opposition that the new moon makes with Uranus from house VII comes with shocking and unpredictable twists of situation.
The direction from which the unpredictable can be born is the partnership or any form of association based on the contract regardless of its nature, collaboration contracts, lawsuits or misunderstandings can arise, civil judgments all based on values or material goods, properties or financial resources and not only.
Most likely, this tense aspect is the best tool to create the right framework in the direction of our own transformation that would not have occurred otherwise on our own initiative.
The new moon makes an inconjunct with Chiron, our guide and healer,
aspect that indicates 2 energies, the scorpion in which the new moon is located and the ram that hosts Chiron, which depend on each other and between which a subtle adjustment must be found. Our capacity for transformation, for regeneration, our power can be put at the service of our inner guide, in the service of our healing and of reconnecting to the divine within us only if we are willing to turn our gaze in this direction, because this aspect is activated only when we fold, reorganize, recalibrate our being to the sacred aspect of ourselves.
In conclusion, what does this New Moon ask of us?
Ask to really see who we are, ask to dig deep into us and purify our being, ask to be authentic and to remove impurities to see the treasure from within, asks to empty ourselves to receive God, demands that the old I be transformed so that the new I may be born.
