New Moon of Scorpio
The New Moon of Scorpio offers us an opportunity to let go of old habits and connect to who we want to become. The energy of Scorpio leaves us feeling the need to control situations and emotions. However, rigidity can create illusions that prevent us from seeing the one percent reality. In order to transform, it’s necessary to give up the rules that marked a former way of life. Change happens when we are able to go with the ow of life and trust the Creator has a hand in every situation and experience.The kabbalistic calendar is based on the cycles of the moon, with each month affecting us in distinct ways. The New Moon Connection offers us an opportunity to deepen our awareness of the influence each astrological sign has on our lives. Learn special meditations that assist us in using the energy of the month to make better choices so we benefit from a month of greater harmony and fulfillment.
