New Moon in Scorpio

new-moon-scorpio

For the experienced user – Before we get into the energies, we begin by providing a link to a youtube video on the Kabbalistic Cross Ritual coupled with the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, as a short meditative aid to help get one in the right frame of mind and spirit to ingest the essence of this writing.

 

Aside from a simple correction… at the north corner where he vibrates, “ag-lah,” I would provide that is an abbreviation for “atah gevurah le olam adonah,” which I believe should be vibrated out in full as opposed to using the abbreviated form.   For my Second Life friends… there is a platform above the Moon Isles with the pentagrams and archangels formed to assist in the visualization.

Welcome to the New Moon in Scorpio which waned at 1:38 PM EST.  The Moon which represents our emotional nature, inner consciousness, dreams, innermost hopes and fears, our instincts and habit patterns in the sign of Scorpio, feminine fixed (very fixed) water, stabilizing the emotional side of ourselves. Scorpio is the sign of extremes, it’s all or nothing, ruled by the ancient god of the netherworld, Pluto.  Scorpio is imaginative, passionate, intense and persistent. When a Scorpio mind is made up… it’s a done deal, no matter what you throw at it.   At the New Moon, the moon and the sun are unified under the same energies, but you have to give expression to both sides.

The Sun which represents our basic character, ego, who we are our very heart.  With Scorpio the ego, if not balanced, can take stubbornness to extremes, the “my way or the highway” attitude.  The sun in Scorpio is highly driven and intense, seldom interested in refinement, can be magnetic and wild and hardwired for survival.

With 9th house energies, the Sun and the Moon make for strong leadership, the ability to teach others with a candidness and directness that some find off putting, only because they’re used to that bullshit refinery and politically correctness, which Scorpio doesn’t have time for. Scorpio doesn’t beat around the bush.

The Moon is also conjunct planet Mercury and trine Neptune.

Mercury represents our intellect, mental activity, and all forms of communication.  Negatively placed in your chart, Mercury can mean a sense of sarcasm, and argumentativeness.  In Scorpio, Mercury is able to get to the heart of matters, seeing secrets below the surface.  9th house energies with Mercury gravitates towards what is lasting and true making philosophy highly popular during this transit.

Neptune represents our sense of idealism and spirituality, our illusions and dreams. Neptune at this transit is at home in it’s ruling sign Pisces which heightens intuition and all things mystical.

I started watching this new series on USA, “Falling Water,” which is an interesting concept on our interconnectedness and how, according to the premise of the series, that can carry into our dreams.  A lucid dream is where the dreamer is aware that they are dreaming, and to a certain extent are often able to project their will into the dream determining what takes place. In an out of body experience, the individual’s psyche or spirit actually leaves the body, according to theory, and can go to some different location, including where another person is.  In this series, certain individuals are moving into one another’s dreams; and certain parts of their lives begin to interconnect, overlap, and synchronize.  We’ve often suggested keeping a dream diary so that you begin to learn your own dictionary of symbolism and what certain things in your dreams mean to you, and we’ve also suggested that you then become the only person who can best interpret what your dreams may mean to you.   I remember some years ago, I didn’t  know it at the time, but I had an OBE, where I knew in my heart I traveled to where this person was, and he was about to kill himself; he recognized me because he attended study at the homeless shelter.  The next day at study as we were about to go into the building, he pulled up in a truck, looked over at me and smiled, and then drove away, and I knew it had not been a mere dream at all. But at the time, I didn’t understand what had happened, I just knew that whatever he had been going through, he had been given some kind of proof of something beyond our surface existences, and so had I.

Today in the Hebrew is rosh chodesh, (first of the month or new moon) of the month of Cheshvan, also called Marchesvan; it is the month of the biblical flood, both it’s beginning and end. The 1929 crash of the stock market also occurred during this time.  According to Kabbalah, Scorpio has a tendency for downfall but has an equal tendency to bounce back coinciding with it’s sense of death and regeneration.   In gematria, the numerical value of mashiach (hebrew for messiah) is 358. Add 14; the value of David and the hebrew letter associated with the month of Scorpio, the “nun” and you get 372, the value of the scorpion.  The scorpion, according to Kabbalah, is one of the primordial poisonous creatures whose archetypal figure is the snake of Eden.  One might reason that there is a good reason for the association of the messiah with the scorpion just as one might reason that there is no absolute good.  Even entities considered by some to be angels, had a darker nature.  In your dreams, what is represented to you by a scorpion/snake?  In religion and theology, snake represent different things; on one side the snake is the tormentor or adversary and then there are certain religions where the snake is reveared and healing, different sides of the coin.

 

Less well known is the fact that the serpent is equated in 1 Enoch 69:6 with Gader’el, one of the wicked angels who descended from heaven to have sex with women on the earth (elaborating the story in Gen 6:1-4). ”

 

The snake has been associated with Lord Enki, one of the Anunnaki to whom is attributed the creation of mankind. So the individual is left to his or her own interpretation. There is a reason that words conjure different feelings or images based upon who the individual is and what they have learned/experienced.  Just as with our meditations on the tarot cards, the symbols on the cards do have a particular meaning in kabbalah, but the card meaning is left to interpretation of the individual.

The month of marchesvan was created by the hebrew letter nun.  The letter nun takes on two different forms, the bent, and the final nun, a straight line   One interpretation on the meaning is the bent nun represents he who has fallen and the final nun represents one who has straightened back up, just as one might reason that a ‘fallen angel,” might only be considered “fallen” by someone looking at it from one perspective.  One might also reason that such a being/entity was serving it’s intended purpose and therefore the state of his/her fallenness is left for interpretation, just as the symbols in our dreams.  As to the “bent over” nun, Rabbi Rashi commented that if one is bent over throughout his lifetime, that means he is humble and therefore will be blessed in his life to come with reward, not a state of “fallen,” at all.

The letter nun takes us to the 24th path of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life connecting the sphere of Tiphareth (beauty) with the sphere of Netzhach (victory), and the card, “Death,” in the Thoth Tarot.

On the surface, the Death card appears very ominous, but a closer look reveals a great deal of life…

“The Universe is Change; every Change is the effect of an Act of Love; all Acts of Love contain Pure Joy. Die daily! Death is the apex of one curve of the snake Life: behold all opposites as necessary complements, and rejoice. 116”  DuQuette, Lon Milo. Understanding Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot (p. 131). Red Wheel Weiser. Kindle Edition.

According to Aleister Crowley, the scorpion, snake, and eagle, represent three stages of Scorpio. “This Death is vivacious and flexible. He wears the crown of Osiris and dances madly on the bottom of the sea.  Instead of mowing down the living, he uses his scythe to stir up bubbles of new lives from out of the seemingly dead and decaying sediment…the formula of continued life is death, or putrefaction.  Death is, thus, in truth, the original secret male creative God.”

The sphere of Tiphareth balances constriction and expansion, feminine and masculine, above with below… balance.  Tiphareth teaches that God’s presence is felt most profoundly when you balance giving with receiving.  The sphere of Netzhach generates the mechanism of repetition and reproduction.
