It's Scorpio Season! A New Moon Reading.
by Kathy Crabbe

It's the New Moon in Scorpio on Oct. 27 at 8:38 pm PDT (Lunar Samhain too) so I channeled a little something for you along with pulling 2 cards from the Elfin Ally and Lefty Oracle decks plus I included a Scorpio card from my soon-to-be-published Zodiac Goddess Power deck (far right). The reveal is below.

A SCORPIO Channeled Exercise Just for You

You are more powerful than you realize, but your power may be hidden. If it is, call upon it now.

Power within and without,
guide me to my
birth right.
When stars collide
I hear my name.

Now, envision just that.

And there you are, as you are.

Next, say your name aloud. Feel your power and then feel your power grow.

In the photo above are 3 oracles to assist you.

I thought I'd share with you my own experience with this channeling because it might help you too.

Releasing ANGER in a Healthy Way

As I let my brightness shine I let my anger out too, for to repress emotions is a ticket to ill health. Healthy expression of anger can look like this: letting the fire burn within then releasing it in a mad whirl of passion and color on paper: gouging, scraping, scratching the canvas with knives and sticks - mark making to release. In the background I've cranked up LOUD techno music as I dance and whirl and spin the anger out, screaming "F**K YOUUUUU" til I'm exhausted. Whew, I've let it out. it can't hurt me anymore. I banish you, ANGER. I am done. You are dismissed. Below is a painting from that time.

Scorpio New Moon Oracle Reading

Time to go within.
Pick a card.
Then scroll down for the reveal.

Card 1: Scorpio Goddess Brigid (Zodiac Goddess Power Card)

Scorpio Goddess ~ Brigid

Brigid's reign as sacred muse
spans centuries timeless truth
Priestess or nun
tending her fire
Brigid's power
always inspires.

Brigid is one of the few early goddesses to survive intact through the Christian era. Brigid means 'bright one' as symbolized by fire. She is worshiped as a Triple Goddess by the Celtic Irish, called Brigantia in England, Bride in Scotland and Brigandu in Celtic France. In her ancient form as carrier of the cauldron she was ruler of smithcraft, poetry, inspiration, healing and medicine. The Christian Saint Bridget is often invoked as both muse and healer in continuation of her ancient rites and her rituals were preserved for more than 1000 years after she ceased to be called a goddess. Today little is left of the ancient Celtic legends describing her.

Scorpio Affirmations

    I am motivated, resourceful and determined

    I risk honesty

    I transcend earthly concerns and soar to new heights

    I am magnetic and mysterious

    I am Phoenix Rising

    I have no fear of death

Card 2: Kit Fox (Elfin Ally Oracle)

Keyword: Bright
 Meaning: Through touch you are jolted awake for love is everything.
 Reversed: You are lost within yourself.

Affirmation: I am alert and can hear your heart's beauty in every beat.
 Astrology: Mercury
 Element: Air

Medicine: You hear into the heart of silence to ascertain the truth.

Lore: In the desert her soul lit up with Kit Fox as her ally. She could trixie her way up any path where the views outshone her wildest imaginings and the Divines spoke to her loud and clear.

She loved her wee ally, Kit Fox, with all her heart, for he was her guardian, all ears alert for night sounds. In the day she was fierce and on fire from Sun, but by night she lay low, to dream and dance.

Elfin Ally Oracle Deck

Card 3: This Beauty is Killing Me (Lefty Oracle)

Mantra: I am empowered

Affirmation: I am beautiful in my own way.

Element: Fire

 This anger it fuels me
 to make a difference.

To stop the hurting…
 of shoes too tall,
 of plastic surgeries too fake -
 I'll spare you the details.
 Oh the horror of beauty, of pain,
 of a society killing us softly,
 insidiously through ads, injustices,
 crimes against women, girls and crones.

 I fight the good fight every day,  in every way I know how.

 A sane fight, a fair fight
 fueled by justice for all.
 Power to the people
 and to the feminine spirit
 dwelling within
 each and every woman and man!
 I honor you.

When this card appears in a reading it's time to seriously look at how you might be damaging yourself, your health, your life. Wearing high heels, for example is extremely harmful to your feet and back and will cause pain for you at some point in your life. Are you hurting others or being hurt? Are you vulnerable? Do you need protection and education around protecting yourself, your loved ones, your home, or the natural world around you? This card is simply pointing out the price you are paying for so called 'beauty'. Is it worth it?

In my own life here in Southern California I look around at all the plastic surgeries and there are A LOT. But what can I do? I can accept me and put myself proudly out there to share my idea of what beauty means at middle age. It's silver hair, extra weight and wrinkles that add to my beauty, not take away from it. I have survived AND thrived and beauty IS middle aged and wrinkled. So deal with it.
