In the the astro-poetic channeled divinatory system of Sabian Symbols, the theme for this New Moon today is: "A Woman Draws Away Two Dark Curtains Closing The Entrance To A Sacred Pathway".
This Moon happens at 19 Scorpio at 12:47pm ET, and it is a powerful one of serpent energy. The venom of the serpent can be used either to heal to to harm. Indeed, Serpent Haired Medusa, upon her death by beheading, yielded poison from the blood on her left side and medicine from her right. But who is to say which is which? Timing and dosage amounts matter. A vaccine can prevent a full-blown illness; a homeopathic dose can cure an ill; too much of a "good" thing can cause many kinds of trouble and imbalance.
This is a New Moon of rebirth. All New Moons are monthly times of renewal, but this one can be called "Lunar Samhain", when the Veil is super thin between worlds. This is a Moon for divination of all kinds. It is a time to look deeply into ourselves and see what must die in order to be reborn.
The beheading of Medusa also yielded Pegasus, the white Winged Horse of poetry and the Muses. In poetry, the saying, "My Pegasus will not go this morning," means that ones creative forces feel stunted. (Yes, this may have some phallic imagery as well. We are dealing with Scorpio, after all, the ruler of the sexual center and the regenerative forces.)
Where might you be hanging on to something toxic that can be purged? What doors within you need to open in order to allow your creative forces to fly? Where in your psyche can the curtains be opened in order to let the light in?
