This moon cycle is very powerful. Not only is the New Moon in Scorpio, but it is also a Black Moon. Similar to a Blue Moon, a Black Moon is when there is a second New Moon in a single month, and it only happens roughly every 32 months. We won't see another black moon until 2019, so make sure that you tune in to the energy while you can.
New Moon's bring the chance to start anew, to plant the seeds of what will happen in the upcoming lunar cycle. In contrast, Scorpio's ruling planet Pluto, is all about death, endings and transformation. Use the powerful currents of this Black Moon to shed all the weight of past wounds that are still holding you back in life. Like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, harness and embrace this extremely strong energy and let it lift you toward your higher truth. Tonight is an excellent night for rituals, ceremonies and divination, not just to glimpse into the shadows and lights of this lunar phase, but of the next three years.
New Moon - September 30
Nine of Cups
Otherwise known as the "wish card", the Nine of Cups is a great card to pull during the New Moon. Use this time to manifest your truest desires. Remember the old adage, "be careful what you wish for". Think long and hard about what you want your life to be like one month from now. Take the time to make realistic plans to achieve those small steps, so that you can fully integrate your desires with the energy of the lunar cycle. Wish away!
Waxing Moon - October 8
Four of Wands
The Four of Wands is all about celebrations, new beginnings and fertility! Again, this is a very encouraging card to draw for the Waxing Moon, which represents creativity and action. Use the energy of this time to get an extra joyful boost of excitement toward bringing last week's manifestations into reality.
Full Moon - October 15
Knight of Swords
The Knight of Swords surges into the heat of the battle with courage and passion. This is a great energy to have during the height of the Full Moon energy. However, be careful to lay out your plans during the first two phases of the cycle so that you don't become scattered and chaotic when it's time to let your creation out into the world. It can be easy to let this week get the best of you, so try to harness all that energy with focused intent, and avoid letting your ambitions push you out of control.
Waning Moon - October 22
The World card is the last of the Major Arcana. It symbolizes completion and balanced achievement. After going through the archetypal journey that the Tarot brings, you have emerged victorious, even through the trials and successes. You are now in a place of rest, reflection and enjoyment before pressing onward as the Fool in the next cycle of your life. The Waning Moon is about renewal and closure. This card is an excellent representation of how to take in the results of this powerful moon cycle in a way that brings closure and prepares you for the next phase. Take a load off, pat yourself on the back, indulge in a spa day or a relaxing weekend retreat and get ready for next week's New Moon.
