Know Your Own Darkness Spell
Incense of the day: Maple
The New Moon in Scorpio occurs just as we are about to leave this particular Sun sign. What have you learned about your own darkness in these last weeks? This Plutonian sign holds knowledge, magic, and power, but here is also found intensity, passion and sometimes even a recognition of our own cruelty. Sit in the darkness, by the light of a single candle, and ask yourself: What part of yourself are you afraid for the world to see? How do you respond to this fear?
Do you put up walls or attempt to impose your will on others? To change the world around you, you have to change yourself first. But that change won’t happen when you are ruled self-ignorance, fear, or anger. It will come only when you know and understand even those parts of yourself you would rather hide. We all have dark urges, the real test of character is how we choose to act on them. We must first acknowledge these impulses or we will unconsciously act out on them. Wrap yourself in a warm, cozy blanket surrounded by pillows, and talk to the dark place in your soul. Envision it curled up in your arms, and express your love. Not that you love the negative urges, but that you love the dark spot regardless of the negative side. Say you understand the fear and hurt that often underlies this. Promise yourself that you will be a good parent to your dark side—giving it protection and acceptance, while not allowing it to be harmful to others.
