We have a lovely new moon in Scorpio today,and for me personally this new moon is much needed as I need a boost to my vital energy. The new moon, which will be full on the 25th November (this means we will have a full moon on Christmas Day) is popularly known across various traditions as The Tree Moon, The Snow Moon, The Dark Moon, The Hunters Moon and The Beaver Moon. Nearly all the names tie back to the need for hunting as the colder days and long, dark nights draw in and the fresh supplies from the Harvest would have needed to be supplemented with fresh meat.
A new moon always bring the opportunity to recharge your energy and set your intentions for the coming few weeks, with those intentions growing stronger each day – and hopefully turning into actions – as the moon grows bigger. A new moon in Scorpio – a deep and brooding sign – offers the added bonus of the chance to work in some regeneration to draw your energy back from bad situations and cycles of behaviour and offers up some powerful, transformative energy.
This is a simple little ritual that will add some heat and energy to the coming weeks, and I think is ideal for the combination of the new moon and sexy scorpio…….
For warmth and energy……
You will need;
- 1 Large Saucer
- 1 Red Candle
- 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon of water – ideally from a running stream or river
- Some red chillies
- Create your cleansed space in whatever way you choose to do this.
- Place the candle in the centre of the saucer.
- Arrange the chillies around the candle – charge each one with a hope of what you want to achieve in the coming weeks.
- Pour the water around the base of the candle.
- Sprinkle the ring of Chillis with the two kinds of pepper – again visualising you achieving what you want to achieve and doing so with energy and fire and passion.
- Light the candle.
- Let the candle burn down by itself
- When the candle has burned down bury some of the remaining Chillis in the garden, to set your intention of this energy growing, and also as a thank you to the Gods and Goddesses that may be helping you and I always make a point of cooking with at least one of them, ideally a meal to be shared.
Happy Hot New Moon!
