This new moon in Scorpio call us to encounter our avoidance of the darkness and get comfortable with it. In a quiet, dark room sit or lay and close your eyes. Perhaps gather a few sacred stones for intuition and inspiration, amethyst for third eye insight, rose quartz to embrace the heart chakra. Sit very still, eyes open, absorbing the darkness. Let your mind go, breathe deeply, when the random wild thoughts thoughts cease and they will, tune in. See if there’s is a theme with the thoughts. Ask yourself what frightens you about the dark, not just the visceral dark but also the symbolic shadow of fear you’re holding onto in your body and mind. Delve into your fears; what are the thoughts that make you fearful? Unhealthiness? A phobia? A relationship giving anxiety? Future fears? Failure? Self sabotage? Go deep. If it’s uncomfortable you’re onto something. Keep following the thoughts to the root. Where does it stem from? Where did it originate? Once the solar plexus fear is felt and allowed to be, then and only then can it dissolve. Allow yourself to go there as long as it takes. You will find answers, you will hear your own inner guide not only protecting you but also giving you vast insight and knowledge into how to better the fear, fears. I promise if you sit with it and delve into your own abyss you will enter a path that leads to freedom from these feelings. You will have not only hope but also excitement on how to breakthrough to the other side. You will find symbols in your dreams. Part of delving into the dark is asking to be reborn. To shed a skin of old programmed fears, some subconscious, and some conscious. Your body and mind will feel lighter.
