New Moon in Scorpio-Diwali and Victory of the Light over Darkness

New Moon in Scorpio

The New Moon occurs at 05.07 GMT on Sunday 15th November.

How have you been feeling? We are living in stressful times. I’ve been holding my breath waiting for the result of the US Election.

The wait is over. The US Election under the leadership of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris promises a time of great healing and unity for America, and also for the world.

Kamala Harris a Sun sign Libran

At last we have an amazing woman taking centre stage in the USA -the feminine energy is strong. The relationship between Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is that of a team. They are friends and equals.

Kamala Harris- is a Libran (Peace Giver) ruled by Venus with her Moon in Aries (The Warrioress). Joe Biden is a Scorpio, with his Moon exalted in Taurus. (His birthday is November 20th).

The very day of the Election Mercury the Messenger turned direct on November 3rd. Hence the ongoing refusal of President Trump to concede. Mercury moves out of its ‘shadow’ period on November 19th.

Mars the Warrior now in Aries moves forward on November 14th at 00.36am GMT, just before this New Moon. Its still extra strong, hence all the fighting.

However this New Moon is Diwali, the Festival of Light when there is victory of the Light over the Dark.

And that is for me is a true blessing with hope and trust in the future.

Diwali-Festival of Light

Lighting tea lights at Diwali

Diwali is a wonderful festival. It’s timed when the New Moon is in Libra in the sidereal zodiac used in Vedic astrology. Libra ruled by Venus, is the sign of the weighing scales and connects us to wealth and abundance! Its the Goddess Lakshmi.

For Hindus, the goddess Lakshmi symbolizes good luck. The word Lakshmi is derived from the Sanskrit word Laksya, meaning “aim” or “goal,” and in the Hindu faith, she is the goddess of wealth and prosperity of all forms, both material and spiritual. For most Hindu families, Lakshmi is the household goddess, and she is a particular favorite of women.

In the Hindu religion it spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair.

From Wikipedia:

“Its celebration includes millions of lights shining on housetops, outside doors and windows, around temples and other buildings in the communities and countries where it is observed.

On Diwali night, people dress up in new clothes or their best outfit, light up diyas (lamps and candles) inside and outside their home, participate in family puja (prayers) typically to the Goddess Lakshmi – the goddess of fertility and prosperity. After puja, fireworks follow!”

As this year the Covid pandemic won’t allow these mass celebrations, we can still celebrate Diwali on November 14th to invite in the Goddess Lakshmi for wealth, prosperity and abundance for our financial year ahead. My suggestion is to light tea lights in a circle and decorate with flowers. The festival lasts for 5 days.

Mercury in Scorpio Recording MasterClass

Time to attend to the needs of your deepest Soul.

Mercury retrograde is a time to Reflect and Meditate, to listen to the Messages the Universe wants to give you.

What does Mercury the Messenger planet want us to pay attention to as it weaves back and then forward through Mars and Pluto’s sign of Scorpio?

Scorpio, the 8th sign of the zodiac offers emotional depth and power, initiation and healing. It’s the sign of transformation and resurrection.

It’s the sign of letting go.

Are you caught in a power struggle- a fight? Giving, but not receiving what you are truly worth?

Mercury retrograde gets a bad press, but it wants to offer us a shift in perspective.

Mercury goes retrograde 3 times a year, and is well known as a bad time with problems with communications.

Beforehand we are advised to back up our computers and delay buying a new phone/computer, or signing contracts until Mercury moves direct again.
