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.
