Dear Friends,

Appreciation, gratitude, investment, and reward. In this time of restructuring and getting it right, we need to stop and appreciate all that brought us to this point. Setting your intentions for this New Moon will be more powerful if you can let go of what you have to let go of. Venus is retrograde in Libra giving us an accounting. I guess we might call it feedback. What do you need to move forward in control?  Venus goes direct on the 16th. Mercury is in its shadow preparing to go retrograde on the 16th. You are learning more about where others intentions are. This is very helpful. You will know who and what to count on. Jupiter is in the 29th degree of Scorpio moving into Sagittarius on the 8th, the day after this New Moon. Scorpio is where we are invested or controlled by the situation we are in. Answers come with this New Moon in Scorpio. Uranus is retrograde at 29 degrees of Aries asking you to look at yourself and how you have played a part in it all. This New Moon in Scorpio is the focus we need to bring about change.


THE SIGN SCORPIO:    Scorpio is one of the most powerful signs in the Zodiac, because of its strong will and determination to accomplish whatever it attempts to do. Its analytical mind, strong intuition, reasoning power, perception, long range planning ability, magnetism, and energy are assurances of success. Where you have this sign in your chart is where you want to merge with others. This sign has the power to control, and has a need to delve deeply. This month will emphasize our finances. Release and letting go is one of the major lessons of Scorpio.

This New Moon is taking place in the Pisces section of Scorpio called a decanate. Here is where total commitment must be made to proceed with what, until now, has been only a vision, but, what could eventually become a reality. In Pisces, you are encouraged to walk into the unknown even though there is no proof that what you seek could, or ever will, exist. The experiences met in the house of Pisces are often considered to be “karmic” in the sense that you are confronted with your past. The power of positive thinking, psychic abilities, unselfish love, and a willingness to help when help is needed, even if personal sacrifices must sometimes be made. Idealistic, spiritual, sensitive, giving, compassionate are all attributes of the sign.

This New Moon is also taking place in the Taurus section of Scorpio called a dwad. The key phrase for Taurus is, “What do I have?” Taurus is concerned with getting results. Money, personal resources, security, survival skills, and self-esteem. To have the things around us that make us comfortable and reflect who we are. This sign builds. Where this sign is in your chart will indicate your sense of values, as well as where you are apt to be locked up in material values. Taurus rules the throat in the physical body.

The fixed signs in the Zodiac have to do with values and security. They are like the cornerstones of a building. Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are the four fixed signs. This New Moon in Scorpio is letting us know what we have invested in and what may need a reboot. Pluto is in Capricorn breaking down and restructuring the system we live by. Pluto has been in Capricorn since the Fall of 2008. Pluto will be there for about 6 more years. This is a must see and must do time. Saturn, the Planet of timing and responsibility is in Capricorn for the first time since 1988/89. With Saturn and Pluto both in Capricorn now is the time. Mars is in Aquarius giving us a bigger picture. If we are restructuring the message may be what about the concerns of humanities needs and the breathing room you need. This New Moon in Scorpio is hosting two Planets that are sitting at the end of a sign. Jupiter is at the 29th degree of Scorpio. We have reached the end of the way we use our funds. Some things need to be cleaned up. I guess we could say waste. Uranus was in Aries for 7 years, went into Taurus for a few months to take a peek at what we need. This New Moon has Uranus revisiting Aries for a few months to give us a call to action. Uranus will be back in Taurus March 2019 to stay for its full 7 years. This New Moon brings something we need to know for ourselves as it is sitting at the last degree of Aries. Something in your life and what you need for the future is in your face now. If you wanted a redo on some things this may be the time. It is time to get into control by letting go of certain things. Let’s find out what that is.
This is a symbol of the need to share any true essence of selfhood, as here brought to an immediate actuality in everyday living. No ultimate values can be cloistered forever in the depths of self, and implicit in the symbolism is the gregarious nature of the human soul as revealed in the naïve friendliness it shows for all other creatures. Here is a magic of personality by which any desired reality may be conjured into being. The keyword is ACQUIESCENCE. When positive, the degree is man’s ingratiating gift for employing the simple things of life for surmounting any momentary obstacles to his self-fulfillment, and when negative, self-betrayal through a lack of all discrimination.    “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
