Scorpio is the witch of the horoscope, both in the good and the bad sense of the word. It is most likely to possess mastery of the “dark arts”, the most likely to be just a tiny bit evil but also the most likely to be full of charm and allure, the perfect temptress and an enchantress of the highest order. This water sign can produce a siren whose song will be sure to bring all sailors to their demise, crashed on the shores of the sea of love.
What the New Moon in Scorpio Will Be About
With the New Moon in Scorpio, any of the more sinister traits that this sign may (and often does possess) tend to get amplified up quite a bit. The scorpion's sting becomes more deadly, scales of the siren's fishtail become sharper, the rocks this mythical creature resides on become more dangerous for any ship that may come close by. At the same time, her song become sweeter and her charms more potent than ever. Bringing equal amounts of pleasure and pain, this femme fatale's already delicate inner balance can tip over in one direction just as easily as in the other.
Once in her embrace, the sailor will see her dark side. She is a passionate lover but also tends to be extremely jealous and possessive - almost treating "her people" as her property. The Scorpio will stop at nothing in order to get and keep their prey - hide important information, keep secrets, manipulate and weave elaborate webs to keep their victim in their domain. Even if this may sound as an exaggeration, during the New Moon, it may not be.
Integrating with our Shadow in the Scorpio New Moon
With these forces in power, it might prove a bit difficult to navigate the stormy sea that is the life. Still, Odysseus outsmarted the sirens and so we too can outsmart the Scorpio. Bear in mind though that this dangerous creature may not always be an external enemy but may, at times, also reside within us. Just like this frenzied enchantress of the horoscope, we too may need to curb our burning jealousy, put reins on some of the more negative sides of the passion burning within us and let others have their fair share of freedom.
The innate tendency to manipulate people for our own ends exists in all of us, no matter how pure and noble-hearted we may consider ourselves to be. This is why it is always good to keep our motives in check and see whether we are approaching any situation with a good and honest intention or we want to play the people involved as if they were figures on a chessboard. Instead, it may be wiser to direct your cunning and intellectual effort towards business ventures and work on transmuting the passion burning within you into the kind of love whose fire warms the hearts of everyone around instead of burning them to ashes.
