Time for a deep dive.

Another month, another new moon. Only, this time, it's in the magnetic and mysterious sign of Scorpio. And the new moon in Scorpio means a lot of wonderful things for your love life if you are the kind of person who values emotions and the wisdom of your intuition.

Tough subjects, we know. But that's the magic of an event in astrology like this one. It casts a spell of intensity in all those areas of your life where you are deeply invested emotionally, like your love life. And by doing so, it naturally puts you in a detective mode where you are more inclined to find out the answers you were evading previously.

Questions like "am I deluding myself that he's the one?" and "is there really something fishy about this new guy or am I reading too much into things?" Because the truth is, we often dismiss these dark questions in the throes of new love. But answering them can be the difference between a fulfilling romance or a relationship where we are left heartbroken and taken advantage of.

So here are 4 new moon rituals you can try for the new moon on November 7th. They will align your zodiac sign with the energy of this intense cosmic event and help you live the romance of your dreams.

1. Ground yourself in reality.

Since Scorpio energy is deep and emotional in nature, you will benefit greatly by grounding yourself on the night of the new moon when the energy is at its height.

To do this, sit down in a comfortable place where you won't be disturbed for 5-10 minutes and close your eyes. Breathe in deeply, and as you exhale start relaxing your body from your head to your toes. Do this three times until you are completely relaxed.

Then, imagine a circle of white light surrounding you where you sit. Feel it cocoon you and fill you up with its warmth. It will protect you from all harm and put you at ease so you are able to listen to your intuition more clearly in the following days.

Once you feel peaceful and grounded, count backward from 10 to 1 and then open your eyes slowly. You can do this short ritual in the coming weeks whenever you feel overwhelmed by emotion. It will help you calm down and see the reality of your situation with blinding clarity.

2. Write down your wishes and place it on an altar.

You can pair this with the above ritual for better results. But it's not mandatory. Just make sure to take a bath before you do this. And if you don't have an altar or prayer room in your home, place your wishes in a spot that you respect and clean regularly, like a bedside table or a drawer of important things.

For the ritual, take a piece of paper and write down your relationship goals for the next 6 months. Make sure they are specific and positive sentences. That means don't fixate on what you don't want. Write about what you do.

Once done, fold the paper and thank the new moon for charging your wishes with moon magic. You can even draw symbols that resonate with your wishes on the folded surface of the paper, like a heart, a smiley face, or a rose. Make sure you do this ritual AFTER the new moon has officially occurred, which is around 11:01 PM EST.

3. Dress up as your shadow for the next 30 days.

Everyone has a shadow. It lives in your subconscious and is made up of all those parts of yourself that you have rejected over the years (mainly because of societal pressure). And Scorpio energy is all about embracing them.

Why? Because your shadow is not your evil twin, just your other half. And accepting it is the ultimate expression of self-love.

So if you are brave and want to become whole on the inside, pledge to dress up as your shadow for the next 30 days. And by that, we don't mean walk around like a Goth vampire if you are a sweet girl-next-door. Just choose a part of yourself that you hate and then dress in a piece of clothing that represents that for the next month.

For example, if you are ashamed of your anger, wear something red (an item of clothing or an accessory) every day. It will align you with the powerful energy of rage and help you understand why you are afraid of your anger.

Trust us, 30 days is enough time to realize that anger is just a signal from your subconscious that you are feeling violated and need to take action to protect yourself. So choose your shadow and dress away!

4. Create an Envy Map.

Scorpio energy might be wise, resilient, and transformative when expressed positively, but it also has a dark side that includes expressing emotions like jealousy, possessiveness, and vengeance. And we have all felt these emotions sometime or another in our life.

That's where an Envy Map comes into the picture. It's the perfect new moon ritual where transformative energies are already in flux. To do this, take a sheet of paper (or more) and divide it into three columns. Name the first "Envy Triggers," the second "What I Covet," and the third "Magic Time."

As the name suggests, in the first column you are supposed to write down an instance where you were jealous of somebody, like "I am super jealous of Tim's new car." In the second, write down why you were jealous. For example, "Because I want a car as well." And in the last column, write down what you are going to do to make your wish come true, like "I will save up X amount of money every month and buy the Y car in 12 months."

Easy peasy! At least in theory. In reality, some of the points you write down in the covet column will make you cringe and feel silly. When that happens, just write down why your jealousy was stupid in the first place and you will be freed.
