New Moon - The age of the Moon is 0 to one days. The moon is 0 -45 degr4es directly ahead of the sun, rises at dawn and sets at sunset. Magick should be performed between dawn and sunset. A New Moon's power may be embryonic, you can be assured that the power of any spell cast at this time will continue to increase in power as time goes on. Working with Sun Goddesses such as Sekhmet, Vesta or Heartha or the God Ra will increase power. Work for self improvement, gardening, careers, romance.
The New Moon (or Dark Moon) is astrologically in conjunction with the Sun. Because the Sun's light overpowers the nearby Moon in the day, and the Moon is on the other side of the Earth with the Sun at night, She is not visible in the sky at all. During a lunar cycle look into the sky (As above, so below) and observe which phase the Moon is in. Then you will know where you are in the 'growth' cycle of each lunar month. Those who are born during a New Moon phase are impulsive, passionate, and intuitive. They are risk takers and pioneers. The New Moon is like a SEED planted in the Earth. We cannot see Her but She is ready to grow, full of potential and energy for Her new journey.
Moon in Scorpio - With Moon in Scorpio, dig deep. Scorpio weaves the visible and invisible worlds together. We see through and into the roots. Direct this energy away from obsession and towards creation. Sexuality can be potent, musky. The Moon in Scorpio gives us attitude, and brings out our primal side; it sharpens our curiosity and our edges, our focus to the point of obsession. Fluff doesn't cut it; get real or let it go; honor privacy, don't crowd. The moon's transit through Scorpio is a time of death and rebirth (not necessarily physical death), intensity, extremes and heightened sensitivity. It is good for focusing, being sexual and doing psychic work because of the deep emotions and desires Scorpio brings.
Patriarchal astrology paints a grim picture indeed of the Scorpio transit. Since sensitivity is heightened, you find yourself feeling the Goddess most intensely, especially the Dark or Crone Goddesses. During a Scorpio transit opinions and feelings are intense and penetrating. Strong desires, especially sexual yearnings, run deep with emotions at their peak.
Emotional resentments from the past can surface and block your heightened creative energy, so fight urges to be suspicious, secretive and moody. This is a time of regeneration and cleaning out of emotional debris from the previous month - great time to clear out everything to start a new lunar cycle. There is great energy to complete things and focus on certain areas that you have found yourself too scattered to deal with in the previous cycle. Although Scorpio is a fixed sign, it is really about metamorphosis - the most profound kind of change. Nothing can stop Scorpionic transformation once it is started. Moon in Scorpio is the best time to work magick involving sexual matters, power, psychic growth, secrets and fundamental transformations. Healing rituals for ailments of the reproductive organs are also done during this period of time. Those born under a Scorpio Moon sign are intense, fiercely curious, and need to create solitude with healthy boundaries rather than isolation.
