With this New Moon pointed toward 2019, it seems that most people cannot flip the calendar page fast enough, and leave 2018 behind. Yes, there is a wonderful new direction ahead, but 2018 hasn’t quite left yet.
Right now, we have planetary messengers who are sending out calls. Here's what they are saying. “Each of you needs to take a deeper and more penetrating look at some key areas of your lives.” My hearts' desire and hope, is that the ideas in this blog will give you some inspiration and guidance toward navigating these final weeks of 2018.
Let’s put this in perspective. When we have New Moon energy, it always presents an opportunity for something new to be initiated. But, before this energy can be realized during this lunar cycle (12-6/7 to 1-5 2019 with a solar eclipse) , we’ve got some weighty issues to examine, and challenges to meet.
From the astrological field, we have Mercury leaving it’s retrograde position in Sagittarius, but returning to late degrees of Scorpio. As a joint venture, we also have Venus returning to the early degrees of Scorpio.
What does this Scorpio movement mean for us? This is the sign of “death, rebirth and transformation.” As I have been watching the brown, dry, dead leaves fall from the trees, no matter how much the tree wants to hold the once lush green leaves, their time is over.
Let’s make it plain and simple. Mercury is the messenger and prime communicator in our “Star charts”. Scorpio represents the ability to go into the depths of our inner selves. What is being requested at this time is a major life adjustment.
In order to fully embrace 2019 with wisdom, truth, creativity, love, joy and greater soul purpose, much fear, emotional negativity, and false belief systems about self and life must be unearthed.
In essence, our unique and individualized “Star” charts are giving each of us magnificent clues. We are being advised by the wisdom within. to feel and lean into our intuitive awareness. If we are open and discerning, we can receive guidance on what things need to be eliminated, cast out, relinquished, burned away, and released. Yours and my personal missions, are letting go of everything that does not support our emotional, psychological, creative, and spiritual well being.
In a nutshell, Mercury is communicating to us that a deep purging needs to happen. Since Scorpio is one of the relationship signs, that deals with intimate one to one connections, joint material resources (money/financial holdings, debt), we are being energetically push to move, and be transformed, by the situations, events, people and circumstances (this may even be past life connections). "Let go of what's not working"!
If you and I want to walk into the “ultra creative power energy” of 2019, this transformation of the areas of life shown in our “Star” maps needs to have happened yesterday. Astrologically, we have only to look in our charts, and find the houses where Mercury and Venus are positioned, to gain awareness of what needs readjustment, and the New Moon will give a 2019 direction boost.
