‘ It is impossible to go on as you were before, so you must go on as you never have.’
I begin this new moon with the above quote, for Scorpio energy always ushers in dynamic change, and when we look back over the year, what a year of clearing it has been.Destruction has played out in many people’s lives, and I have heard people say this has been one of the hardest years they have been through. With all challenges we are faced with , it’s always good to be mindful and look at the teachings each challenge has brought in, usually there is a gift to be unraveled, such as gaining greater discernment, to release fear and align more to love, or to just live in the present as much as we possibly can.
This new moon is all about rebirth and allowing the new to unfold with grace and ease, so much has been going on behind the scenes with the Venus retrograde through Scorpio and now through Libra.Have you felt this ? A need to re-value your relationships, including the relationship with self?This retrograde value and worth have been a key theme. If there has been an imbalance in relationships with all taking and no giving, this has been revealed and relationships have been turbulent or ended.
Some people say if a relationship doesn’t make it through a Scorpio Venus Retrograde then it wasn’t meant to last.
