The New Moon in Scorpio is traditionally a time to dig deeply into your soul for the answers to your most profound questions about your life.
The Scorpio New Moon (Sun and Moon in Scorpio) on Wednesday, November 7, will give you a moment to pause and concentrate deeply so you may penetrate an ongoing question in your life. This is a time to gain insights and discover underlying psychic energies guiding your life. You may make a profound discovery or make a major decision under this influence. But please slow down, reconsider your awareness from as many angles as possible, and sleep on your decision before taking decisive action. Wait at least one day, until the moon moves into Sagittarius on Thursday, November 8—when the intense energy of the Scorpio Moon will have dissipated—before you take your next step.
The energy of the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Sagittarius on November 8 will help you see the big picture, and thus enable you to be even more expansive in your thinking and in your reactions. The energy of the Sagittarius Moon also will cast a more optimistic spin on your activities than you will perceive under the energy of the Scorpio Moon—and will help you engender more positive results.
In contrast, the Scorpio New Moon will give you an opportunity to withdraw from the hectic pace of life to focus your energies within and introspect. You will discover what is out of alignment at a deep level within yourself so that you may metaphorically clean house. (It also is a good time to clean your physical house!) By digging deeply into yourself, you will not only find what is not working but you also will find what is working, and you will have a chance to marshal your positive inner resources to move more clearly into the future with focus and determination.
Because Scorpio energy enables you to discover hidden information, you will have new ideas, inspirations, and directions to act upon. You also will have the opportunity to let go of what is no longer working in your life. You will be able to let the past fade into the distance under this celestial influence. This Scorpionic purification process will enable you to make room for new people and situations that are more appropriate to your new stage of life!
Scorpio is also one of the most powerful constellations of the zodiac, with its strong will, determination, and perseverance. With a never-say-die attitude, more Presidents have been born under the sign of Scorpio, or with Scorpio Moon, or Scorpio Rising, than any other of the 12 signs of the zodiac. Five of the 45 U.S. Presidents have been born under the Sun Sign of Scorpio, including John Adams, James K. Polk, James A. Garfield, Theodore Roosevelt, and Warren G. Harding. Other famous Scorpios include Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, Prince Charles, Pablo Picasso, Bill Gates, and Billy Graham.
The greatest benefits of the Scorpio New Moon come when you face your past honestly and realistically, and reimagine your future with your highest intentions in mind. Scorpio has three possible levels of manifestation—the scorpion who often lives hidden under the earth and stings if s/he feels threatened, the eagle who soars above, seeing the big picture, and the phoenix, who rises to success from the ashes.
From the depths of destruction, Scorpio rises time after time to create anew. Scorpio, therefore, is associated with the power of transformation, particularly self-transformation. So, you have the power under this New Moon to alchemically transform the base metals of your ego into the gold of your soul. Sit quietly in meditation in the days leading up to the Scorpio New Moon. Visualize yourself gradually letting go of the lower aspects of your nature that are no longer serving you, like layers of an onion being peeled away one by one. Then, visualize the light of Spirit descending upon you—bathing you and regenerating you as you re-emerge into the light of your soul, to bring more loving soul energy into your daily life.
Be like the phoenix rising from the ashes under the energy of the Scorpio New Moon on November 7—and in the 2 weeks following the New Moon until the light of the moon is fullest on November 22. New Moons always signify a new beginning. This Scorpio New Moon more intensely opens the opportunity for a new beginning as it coincides with the placement of lucky and expansive Jupiter in Scorpio as well. Fortunate Jupiter has been in Scorpio since November 10, 2017, and will remain in Scorpio until November 8, 2018. The planet of good fortune then moves into Sagittarius, the sign where it most naturally expresses itself, on November 8, 2018. Lucky Jupiter will remain in the Sign of the Archer until December 2, 2019. Enjoy!
