Hold your tongue and mind your manners…. If you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.
This New Moon is quite powerful in terms of Shadow Work and kicking off Mercury’s retrograde in Scorpio. While New Moon’s are typically themed for starting something new or planting seeds, this one is focused on helping us let go and putting in those final touches to things we have been working on already. This is a time of cleaning out those skeletons from your closet, in letting go of a painful past and making peace with your shadowy aspects that you have been fighting against.
This is a time of reaching out when you feel you need to express yourself, to a trustworthy source – you need someone to help guide you through your emotions or to validate your feelings. Counselling, therapy, or even having a good friend who can provide an objective perspective can greatly help during times of feeling at odds with your heart, mind, and soul. Shadow Work is truly the path of the heart warrior, however, sometimes it is difficult to do this on your own without a system to help organize a plan of action in how to navigate through, or someone to help untangle the messy knots that your thoughts have become.
This Scorpio New Moon says its time to clean house and it is time to find your path that transforms your shadow into light, so to bring peace back to your mind and grace back to your heart. In terms of setting any new goals, planting seeds, or casting new intentions – have your focus be on new habits and behaviors. Ask yourself: Are you reacting from your wounds and being led by them? Or are you acting from a place of healing?
Triggers are everywhere with this New Moon and it may place a lot of people on edge when dealing with old wounds that have been avoided and unhealed.
Tarot Reading for the New Moon in Scorpio

What is Mercury retrograde famous for? Miscommunication… The New Moon in Scorpio is setting up the tone for Mercury, which gives us a head start in mending potential issues that can arise during its retrograde phase, which will also be in Scorpio.
The Page of Blades is a card of seeking guidance, offering advice, and helping those in need in terms of issues of the mind and soul. Miscommunication via text, email, or some form of distant communication is highly likely with this card as well, especially in terms of feeling triggered with the news that is received. With that said, be mindful of what you hear, read, and what messages you relay to others. Everyone is feeling quite sensitive right now, and even though Scorpio’s sarcasm can be quite comical, it can be taken a bit too literal causing unpredictability in how others receive it.
A major theme of this New Moon is also secrets, and issues with trust when it comes to sharing your secrets with others. You don’t want to reveal too much information to the wrong source that can end up using it against you, and so it is important that you hold your tongue and keep your thoughts to yourself until you are certain that what you reveal will be given to others who are honorable and trustworthy. This might be feelings of resentment towards others, or negative thoughts about how you truly feel in a situation that others may not agree with, or perhaps what you reveal will be exposed to others you would rather keep it from.

The Scorpio New Moon offers transformation, but first you have to experience the undoing. October is a month of trial and tribulation for you, but it is shaping you into your most authentic self, by chipping away the parts of yourself that were programmed into you by your environmental influences, and the deeply karmic defensive mechanisms which are no longer protecting you, and are instead sabotaging the things that would benefit you. The Scorpio New Moon forces you to face this wake-up call with opened eyes as the false perceptions of happiness, love, and abundance are stripped away from you.
The New Moon in Scorpio urges you to step outside, to plant your feet upon the ground, and to take in the positive affects that nature has to offer. This can be grounding, stress-relieving, and also inspiring for you. Also consider the more spiritual and metaphysical aspects that nature has to offer, from the benefits of plant-medicine and better eating, to the magical offerings you may find for your altar. The New Moon encourages you to step into your element.
The New Moon in Scorpio reminds you that you really don’t know everything, Gemini. There is still more to discover, to teach, and more to feel. Just when you thought you had everything figured out, the New Moon brings about another puzzle to solve. You are gaining wisdom, Gemini. This Scorpio Moon also reminds you that the feelings of others are valid, and that you have to consider that while you may be in the same boat as someone else, they may have a different perspective about it than you, and so rather than pointing out the differences, or wanting to prove who is on point, you need to instead share with one another, and to gain a higher perspective of what is really going on.
The Scorpio New Moon ignites your seeker’s heart and offers you a rabbit hole to jump into, bringing magic and mystery into your life. October has offered you an opportunity, and this invitation is awaiting your acceptance. There is much to learn and with this you are promised growth, to expand within the areas that add value into your life and bring you closer to your truest desires.
The Scorpio New Moon pulls you out of a box that you had been pushed into, but had made a cozy home inside. You adapted to many of things that were thrown at you, and you have accepted certain experiences to be what they are, because they are unchangeable. However, what if you altered your perspective on that and realized that these things are actually able to change, and that you have the power to transform a situation with your very mind? The Scorpio New Moon offers you a polarity of perspectives, in being able to see the other side of something, offering a higher understanding and more power to take the action that is needed.
The New Moon in Scorpio might prove to be a confusing time for you, Virgo, as you are placed in a position where you feel a bit of anxiety because of the circumstances surrounding it. This is a place in between where you have been, and where you want to go, but more significant than where you currently stand, as you don’t have completely control over this situation so to predict your next move. You need to instead sit still, and embrace this void as a time to pause and reflect upon your choices with higher awareness and deeper contemplation.
The New Moon in Scorpio is incredibly transformative this month, and it blesses your life with changes that open your World up to new possibilities that existed outside of the system you had adapted to. The prior Aries Full Moon made way for a shift to occur, and the New Moon not only brings the outcome of this, but also plants the seeds for something far better than you could have imagined.
The New Moon in Scorpio puts you on the spotlight. With Venus, Mercury, the Sun and now the Moon all paying tribute to you, you can expect a shift to occur, and you can expect everyone around you taking in some Scorpio habits and leaning towards you when it comes to navigating through them. Shadow Work and Transformation are major keywords within October for many, and so your influence may be appreciated when others are going through the darkness that they have suppressed deep within them, and so you might be put up on stage as others beg to be shown how to preform the Alchemy you have, and to grow during this time.
The New Moon in Scorpio calls you back to your hermit cave and provokes you to connect with your Higher Self. You feel this inner pull and it directs you towards something much bigger than you had considered before – your sense of power, intuition, and your hearts desires have all changed, expanded, and grown within October, and with that has come a renewed sense of who you are, much like a rebirth.
The New Moon in Scorpio reminds you of your amazing power in manifesting your hearts truest desires. You are a go-getter, Capricorn, and you will walk to the ends of the Earth to get what you want. But, what do you truly want? You need to be careful with what you seek, as you could end up seeking the wrong things which bring more trouble than anything. The New Moon in Scorpio reminds you of the redirection the Full Moon in Aries offered you, and urges you to create the best route to travel along the right path.
Sometimes you have to draw a line, and sometimes you have to push it back a few feet, so to ensure that others stop crossing it, or that you need even more distance because of their manipulative tactics in trying to get you to remove it. The New Moon in Scorpio pulls the mask off certain people within your life that have been crossing the line for far too long and taking advantage of your friendship. A lot of the internal suffering and environmental blockages you have experiences may stem from this as well. Redraw that line, Aquarius and formulate a habit in putting your foot down and following through with it.
The New Moon in Scorpio pushes you deep within yourself. There is a lot of contemplation and a lot of review in what you had endured in the past. You are changing, Pisces, and your heart no longer longs for the things it had before. You see love differently, and what you want out of life is nowhere close to what you did before. Give yourself some time, Pisces, and allow the New Moon to help you plant different seeds which will grow fruits that are truly nourishing, and not just flowers that are aesthetically pleasing.
Impulsive and aggressive Aries opposes the diplomatic Libra Sun and Mars, and pushes a surge of “Me First” energy onto us. This is a time of choosing yourself over others, in putting your needs first, which for some may feel a bit foreign if they have been selflessly bending over backwards within their relationships. The Aries Full Moon says no more – it is time to release those burdens so to clear the way for better opportunities, harmonious relationships and vital acts of self-care.
The Full Moon will illuminate areas within our lives that are overly stressful and cause the conflict we are subjected to.
While the Full Moon opposes the Sun and Mars which are being tempered by balance-oriented Libra, the impulsiveness that is inspired by the Moon may be tempered down, which is a good thing, because once Aries has it’s mind made up, there is no stopping the ram from charging head-first. This also puts a major focus on our relationships – a wide scale of the relationship we have with ourselves, our lover, our social circles, and our working environment or career.
Tarot Pull for the Full Moon in Aries
10 of Wands
Card is from the Moonchild Tarot
The Full Moon in Aries urges you to release the burdens which keep you stressed and weighted down. It is time to set boundaries and to choose ourselves first. Say no and speak your peace as to why you no longer bare the weight of the World that is not yours to carry.
Some agreements you have made from the past which now serve as obligations are truly not yours to feel obligated towards. They have run their course and now you are carrying around dead weight – you are taking care of things, people, and preforming tasks that are not truly your responsibility, and it has become overtaxing.
You cannot take on anymore, you cannot move onto new opportunities, and you cannot even fathom the energy to do things you enjoy because of being depleted by those old obligations.
The Aries Full Moon shines a bright light over the areas in your life that are cause to your stress, fatigue and that leave you behind in things you want to catch up on. Tend to these and set the proper boundaries that put yourself first.

The Full Moon in Aries puts you on display and brings your action-oriented and energy onto a more passionate level, pulling out your deepest self and understanding your heart’s truest desires. This Full Moon may prove to be intense for you, as it may amplify certain parts of yourself which keep your vulnerability and sense of authenticity, or your truest Self locked behind a façade of who you truly are. Sacred Sexuality is more than just sex – it is your body, mind and soul completely naked and allowing someone to see the true depth of everything that makes you, you.
The Full Moon in Aries is a bit volatile for you, Taurus. However, it is also quite magical if you submit to the flow. You are inspired to start something new, to change your course, or to take a shot in the dark. While you aren’t labeled as a risk taker, Taurus, Full Moon brings out your more spontaneous side. This brings confidence to jumping into something that you typically might second guess because of the possible consequences it could bring, such as major changes to your lifestyle, environment, and even relationships.
The Full Moon in Aries touches your relationships and pushes you to act upon the things which touch your heart. You may have been running away from your true feelings, Gemini, unable to rationalize Love and to put into context emotions which make you a bit uncomfortable. Like a Wolf hallowing to the Moon, you can feel a call from within, which urges you to run wild and to act upon the guiding light that emits from your heart. You may experience love at first sight – which doesn’t necessarily have to be another person, but something which brings you closer to Love.
The Full Moon in Aries pushes you deep within your own mind and heart, making you realize that many of things you overburden yourself with, are not yours to carry, and that this issue has been going on, long before your incarnation here on this Earth. It is not your job to take care of everyone, Cancer, you do not need to feel obligated to pick up the puzzle pieces of those who choose to be a scattered mess. It is time to take your gift of nurturing, healing, and restoring back into yourself, and to work on your own soul for a change.
You might have thought you had it all figured out, Leo, but the Aries Full Moon illuminates an ulterior perspective which may change the entire game. However, this is not a bad thing at all, in fact, it is incredibly positive. This may require more work, research, and also effort on your part, but it will surely be worth it, and you can feel that truth with confidence and conviction. The Aries Full Moon offers you a boost to reach for the stars.
The Full Moon in Aries gives you a massive boost of energy to direct towards a higher cause that means a lot to you. This comes in from someone within your family line, or someone whom you may have shared a prior life with and have a deep connection within this lifetime. As Aries is a masculine sign, this may come from your father, or a significant person in your life with male energy.
The Full Moon in Aries may inspire you to take a risk, chancing something major in your life, and you might not like the outcome – at first that is. You can sit in regret over the consequences you have brought onto yourself, by taking those steps which felt divinely guided, and then get lost in questioning the Universe as to why it was so unfair to you. Or, you can change your perspective in understanding that this risk you took was for the purpose of bringing that bulldozing affect so to remove blockages you did not realize were there all along.
The Full Moon in Aries crosses your path and leaves a trail of magic.

The Full Moon in Aries gives you a powerful boost and restores your sense of strength. You have been so tired lately, Sag, and you still have kept pushing through. However, sometimes you need a little rest so to recharge – after all, most body builders will say that a rest day is needed to help build muscle, and so the same goes for any other aspect of yourself, and your life. Depart from the World for a moment, recharge, and then come back feeling refreshed and ready to take on the many adventures that October offers.
Have you been projecting your most authentic truth in who you truly are, Capricorn? Are you chasing after your heart’s true desires, and hurdling past difficult obstacles for all the right reasons? The Full Moon in Aries illuminates some of your mistakes and may even shine a light upon your most treasured goals, but instead of showing you the goodness of them, you start to see the destructive forces they are truly made of. This might be a rather difficult Moon for you, and you might feel that you have failed… but instead, you need to consider this a redirection to a better cause, where you can truly express your highest truth in who you really are.
The Full Moon in Aries pushes you up a level within your awakening process.
