“Good morning, Ellen. I am just reading your Facebook post from yesterday about the New Moon in Scorpio. I did not sleep a wink last night. I am a mess. I usually sleep fine. This has happened two nights now in the last week. I am guessing it has to do with some of the energy I am currently feeling but wanted to reach out and see if you have any insight on this. I hope you are well.”
“Yes, the energy can be felt more intensely if aspects in your birth chart align with the new/full moon signs. New Moon in Scorpio … and you’re a Scorpio, right? So you’re more likely to ‘feel’ this one. Sometimes it means we are needing to further integrate the themes which are being highlighted or played out by the new/full moon energy. You’re experiencing some sort of ‘awakening’ process around those themes, and how they show up in your life.
“The laying awake at night really sucks; I can attest to that too. At new/full moon, I place a large piece of moonstone under my pillow at night; and sometimes carry a smaller stone in my pocket during the day. Google moonstone’s symbolism and applications. If you’d like to buy a piece, stop by Cast A Stone in Abington, or The Village Silversmith in Salem, if you happen to travel north; both have online ordering, too, and Village Silversmith is pretty extensive.
“If you’d like to take it a step further, consider a reading with an astrologist … I’d be happy to recommend someone local. Hang in there, and I hope you can get some quiet time or a power nap today!”
