Decay is essential to the continuation of life. It provides the fertile ground for new growth. Scorpio is associated with stagnant water, poison rivers, and matter which must be eliminated to maintain healthy systems; the birth and death cycle that continues eternally in natural rhythm.
This new moon in Aries with the coming full moon in Scorpio is worth paying attention to, since within the last year, the Aries-Scorpio theme has been repeated several times. Something is getting through. Aries with Scorpio is the sword that cuts away the decayed matter cleanly, swiftly, and completely, although it might have taken a long time to get ready for this decisive moment.
When Jupiter was about to leave Scorpio last October-November you may recall the great stellium that occurred with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. During that time there was also an Aries Full Moon. I remember it well. With this came the dramatic Democratic victory, heralding political change and an end to the decayed phase being endured. We are now experiencing more of this release as the lunation is digging deep into the pockets of our society to rid the collective of the waste. It's time to cut it loose and there is no better way than with an Aries New Moon.
The same course of action applies to people's personal lives. I'm deleting three specific things from my life and getting ready to forge ahead.
When I think of Aries, I think of the source.
New Moon in Aries.
