A Meditation for the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
The New Moon in Scorpio occured today, November 13, 2012, at 5:08 PM Eastern
In creating this meditation I focused on this month’s New Moon chart with a particular eye toward the Sun and Moon coming together to begin a new cycle in Scorpio. This whole experience is intensified by the Solar Eclipse which occurs about 5 minutes after the New Moon, bringing with it huge opportunities for change, growth and evolution.
The higher vibration qualities of Scorpio are depth psychological healing, intensification of emotion and desire, and purification of the heart and soul. Incorporate these lessons into your own life over the next month.
The lower vibration qualities of Scorpio are power plays, manipulation and controlling others for personal gain, jealousy, staying in the Shadow. Move away from these characteristics and issues over the next 28 days.
New Moon in Scorpio Meditation
This is a guided imagery meditation.
The best way to engage in this experience is to sit comfortably upright with your bare feet on the ground or the floor, with closed eyes and an open heart and an open mind.
Relax your face. Smile and release any tension there. Relax your shoulders. Gently lift them and let them fall into a comfortable place. Shake your arms and hands lightly and then allow them to become comfortable and loose, resting your hands in your lap. Breathe deeply into your torso and as you breathe out twist easily and gently from side to side, then come to center and settle into an easy position. Now gently shake your legs and move them from side to side for a couple of breaths, then bring them to stillness, releasing any tension in them… just let them relax and become heavy. Now lift your feet a little and wiggle your toes and circle your ankles and let them come to rest, planting them firmly on the floor again, knees bent and wide, easily supporting your relaxed legs. Breathe very deeply, in and out, at a natural and comfortable rate.
Even gentle breaths – getting deeper and deeper as you relax.
Breathing slowly, slowing your heart rate. In. Out. In. Out.
Now the darkness behind your eyelids is growing even darker. Darker with every breath.
Open your mind to suggestion. Free yourself into a blissful conscious darkness. Breathe there, relaxing in pleasure.
As you breathe, ask that your Soul to be fully present with you. Consciously present. Imagine who you are without the trappings of your ego, without work, social and family expectations. Become fully engaged in this experience of being one with your Soul.
How does your Soul look? How does he/she feel, both inside and around you? Become very clear with this.
Breathe in. Breathe out. And again. In. Out.
Now imagine that your Soul reaches into your mind – the very deepest recesses. Your Soul penetrates both your conscious mind and your sub-conscious mind, offering love, grace, gentleness and forgiveness to every particle, every thought, every image that scares or distorts the true You.
Watch as any negative or un-pure mental attachments are either released with your breath or transformed with the purity of the light of your Soul.
Breathing in. Breathing out.
Now see your Soul gently stroking your throat and encircling your neck, offering the power of the truth of who you are to your voice – to who you say you are and to how you speak your truth. Allow your throat to relax with the gentle power of your Soul’s guidance. Imagine that you are throwing out of your mouth any and all dichotomies between who you are and who you have made it a habit of professing to be. Purge.
Now, open your voice to the purification of your Soul’s voice. See yourself speaking, writing, singing your truth!
As you continue to breathe, imagine that your Soul lovingly touches your heart. And as your Soul’s touch becomes loving caresses, feel your heart expand and fill with the love that your Soul offers. Your heart is glowing with the light of your Soul – your Soul’s purpose. It is completely open to knowing the beauty and perfection of what your Soul is offering you. What is your passion? Why are you here? Allow your heart to feel these answers. Open your heart to feeling fully.
We are here to feel. To give and receive Love. Your Soul is telling you that it is both human and Divine to open your heart to the intensity of feeling that is possible as a human being – to the intensity of feeling that is your birth right as a human being imbued and guided by your Divine Soul. Feel any negative emotions as they rise and allow your Soul to transform them and to purge them forever from your heart. And know from your heart’s wisdom that every moment of your life should begin and end by being deeply and fully felt.
Continue breathing, in and out. Slowly. Fully. Deeply.
Now see your Soul reach into your solar plexus. Your Soul is stroking you with the fullness of your impact on the world. Without you, the entire fabric of the Universe would be altered. You are being offered the strength of self-esteem and the fortitude to realize your path and to achieve your life goals – the goals your Soul agreed to before you were born. Breathe in the sensation of how this feels and release any fears.
And now your Soul reaches lower, into your belly. Your feel it embrace you inside, stoking the fires of your creativity, your passion. As your Soul strokes you, you feel your desires rising, and you are fully engaged with them. Your Soul is caressing your belly, your sexuality, your pro-creativity with the gift of deep and complete intimacy. Feel yourself embracing true intimacy with yourself – knowing your passions and desires completely. From this place, your Soul tells you that you can now be fully intimate and accepting of another.
Breathe with this intimacy. Ask it to stay with you with your Soul’s blessing.
Imagine now that your Soul gently touches the very base of you. Allow your Soul to hold the area where your legs meet your body – the area of your tail bone and sexual organs. This is where your connection to the Earth and to Mother and to Survival live. Feel you Soul awaken you to the knowledge that you are safe. You are loved. You are protected. Your Soul offers you the gift of connection to your home – your roots. Know that you have all that you need to fulfill your Soul’s purpose. You are safe and loved.
Breathe with the rhythm of your Soul. Breathe fully and gently and deeply.
Now your Soul travels up the length of your body, spiraling, reminding, loving and finally rests with light and purity at the crown of your head. Feel the heat as it gathers there. And now, feel your Soul lifting out of the top of your head, connecting you, always connected now, to the highest reaches of the Cosmos – connecting you to Source. To God. To Goddess. To the heart of the Universe itself. And know that you are one with, and a spark of that Divinity. That perfection.
Envision you and your Soul in connection to all that is and know your purpose within it. Express your purpose with love, with healing, and with grace to all.
Breathe with this. Sit with it a moment. Inhale slowly and fully. Exhale slowly and fully.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
When you’re ready, bring your breathing back to its natural rhythm.
Begin to come to full awareness and open your eyes; eyes that are now glowing with your Soul’s intentions, purpose, and the knowledge that you are purified and aligned lovingly with your truth. Breathe. Smile…
Now you are feeling refreshed and restored, regenerated in the power of the New Moon in Scorpio.
Mmmmmm. Ok. Very nice. How do you feel?
