November's New Moon in Scorpio is Electrifying
A transformative new beginning that's both exciting and nerve-wracking.
This month's New Moon in Scorpio promises transformation on a deep level, but to get there, you'll have to remain flexible.
Scorpio is the sign of mystery, intensity, and transformation; it governs death, rebirth, and regeneration. When you think about it, this is the perfect kind of energy for starting anew.
During this time of year, the veil between the physical and spiritual is at its thinnest, which means that it's easier for us to tap into the ethereal realm and really make things happen.
Additionally, the Moon in Scorpio allows us to enter the recesses of our subconscious minds and make profound changes.
However, with Uranus in the mix, this profound new beginning will be accompanied by disorder, disarray, unexpected changes, and plenty of anxiety.
Here's everything you need to know to make the most of this New Moon.
Astrologically speaking, New Moons are when the Sun and Moon are conjunct, meaning that the Sun and Moon occupy the same space in the sky.
When this happens, the energies of both luminaries mix together. The Sun represents our ego and conscious mind, and the Moon represents our emotions and subconscious. During the New Moon phase, we typically experience a time of complete awareness of our entire selves, inside and out.
The New Moon signifies the beginning of the lunar cycle; seeds are planted, and intentions are set. The slate is wiped clean, and so are we.
Uranus Shakes Things Up
The Sun and Moon will be opposite Uranus in Taurus, making this New Moon electrifying. Uranus is the planet of rebellion, surprise, electricity, and independence, and all Uranus wants to do is break free from the norm and rebel against the status quo. This type of energy with a New Moon is exciting.
Uranus also invokes anxiety and nervous energy, so expect to feel some of that.
The Sun, Moon, and Uranus will be at 12° Scorpio and Taurus, respectively. This degree is associated with Pisces. Being the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces concerns itself with endings, the unknown, and spirituality. As such, this New Moon will be about endings - surprising and unknown - that lead to new beginnings.
Oppositions require us to find balance.
This New Moon highlights the Taurus-Scorpio polarity, which is all about resources. On the one hand, Taurus deals with personal, tangible resources, and on the other hand, Scorpio deals with shared, intangible resources.
This New Moon, which is opposite to Uranus, requires us to find the balance between creating new, intangible resources and the changes we are experiencing with our previous, stable ones.
Expect the unexpected.
Mercury and Venus Soften the Blow
That same day, Mercury in Libra will sextile Venus in Sagittarius. This particular transit promotes peace, harmony, and friendship. Reaching out to friends, family, or partners to help plant these new seeds and intentions wouldn't be a bad thing, as they'll likely be willing to help.
This transit also promotes relaxation, which is excellent news given that Uranus will have us feeling a bit anxious. Whatever intentions you're setting, ease into them.
