The New Moon in Scorpio will be happening on November 14-15; specifically around 12:08am EST on the 15th. This is bringing this quite intense and busy week to a close by getting ready for a new lunar cycle.
The Moon is in it’s fall when in Scorpio; although Scorpio is a water and feminine sign; feminine receptivity is overpowered when in Mars’s house (ancient ruler). Scorpio is about transformation, death, rebirth, going deep within. Also about purification, detox and restoring things. It’s modern ruler, Pluto, is also activated in the chart by the Moon and Jupiter.
With every New Moon, the Sun and Moon form a conjunction; this is about new beginnings, starting a new chapter in our lives; and also ideal for setting intentions. The New Moon will exact at 23 degrees.
The Sabian symbol for this degree in Scorpio is “A bunny metamorphosed into a fairy”. This is about the magic of transformation, magic and enchantment. This can bring a shocking surprise as well.
The New Moon will be forming a sextile with the planets in Capricorn; Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. This makes this New Moon full of possibilities, and opportunities; major transformation and taking your power back. Also, with a trine to Neptune, it’s an excellent time to do spiritual work as well.
Also, this New Moon is influenced by the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction; but luckily we have the sextile aspect between them on our side. There is also the Neptune squaring the Nodes energy that will be lingering the rest of the year and beyond; I see it as a cloud of deception and illusion that will need our discernment to be cleared.
At the time of the exact New Moon, Virgo is rising; the third house is in the spotlight being in Scorpio. With the Sun, Moon and Mercury (ruler of this chart) in the third house, a spotlight is placed into third house matters: communications, media, news… many truths will come out. Digging deep into things and exposing them.
With Mercury/Uranus opposition building, it adds the element of surprise and shock; so unexpected things may happen in the days leading to, during or after the New Moon that might shock the world. Also remember how in the Full Moon in Taurus blog I talked about a black swan event. This energy was present in the previous New Moon we had in Libra.
A cardinal T-square between Venus, Eris and Jupiter/Pluto; power struggles and seeking control; an intense period of transformation and regeneration after clearing of crumbling old structures. Death and rebirth. The square between Eris and Pluto specifically has been happening throughout this year and the next; as both are very slow moving planets. Jupiter amplifies the energies of Eris; which is known as the Goddess of Discord and chaos.
According to AstrologyKing.com, the New Moon will conjunct the fixed stars Unukalhai and Agena; Unukalhai is of the nature of Saturn and Mars. It gives immorality, accidents, violence and danger of poison. Agena is of the nature of Venus and Jupiter. It gives position, friendship, refinement, morality, health and honor.

This is also the last lunar event before Eclipse season! We will be having a lunar eclipse in Gemini at the end of this month.
Use this New Moon to set some clear, powerful intentions around how you want your life to look like, and having balance and harmony; and anything that can support your relationships, goals and spiritual journey.
New Moon in Scorpio is also a great opportunity to do a cleanse, detox and purify our bodies. There are so many ways to do this; find what works best for you. It can be as simple as increasing water and veggie/fruit intake while avoiding processed foods, meat and dairy; adjust to your own personal needs.
And as with the current energies, I cannot ever emphasize it enough, be gentle with yourself, focus on self-care and disconnect from social media when it’s overwhelming you!
