The New Moon in Scorpio has arrived!
On November 13th at 4:27 a.m. (EST), the New Moon occurred in Scorpio, the fixed water sign associated with depth, transformation, and all things taboo. A New Moon represents clean slates for us and fresh opportunities worth pursuing if we are open to doing so.
The Sun and Moon will meet in Scorpio, but this New Moon has some extra fire behind it thanks to Mars, which is also currently in Scorpio. Mars is the planetary ruler of Scorpio, meaning the extra push is needed and hopefully clarifies the topics we are working through during this transit. Add Uranus, the planet of freedom, technology, and originality to the mix, forming an opposition to the New Moon, and this lunar experience is prepared to shake things up.
While all the signs will have their experience with the New Moon, some signs have some serious potential to thrive during this time. Check out the signs below (Sun and Rising!) to see which zodiac signs will thrive under the New Moon in Scorpio.
This New Moon appears in your 1st House of Self and Identity, and while it will push you outside of your usual comfort, you will be better for it. This lunar transit asks you to dig deep into yourself and face not just the idealized self you want people to see but the other sides you don’t like to admit are there. Conjunct with your ruling planet of Mars, which is also in your sign, these realizations may feel accelerated and even aggressive at times—but they are necessary for you to take stock of who you are and want to be. It’s important to maintain the balance between yourself and others, so don’t place all your reliance on one or the other. As the door opens, don’t be afraid to enter your power—it’s been waiting for you.
With the New Moon in your 9th House of Travel, Higher Education, and Philosophy, it’s time to sit with your belief systems and perspectives for a minute, Pisces. If your current beliefs or those you grew up with have felt uncertain or shaky, it’s easy to ignore the doubts, but these things always find a way to come back up. Exploring the root causes of these feelings can bring you much closer to not only better understanding the world around you but also understanding yourself. Additionally, the push to travel or expand your education may also show up during this transit, and it’s worth taking the opportunity to step outside your life as usual. It’s a season of growth—are you ready?
The New Moon lights up your 5th House of Romance, Creativity, and Pleasure, making it the perfect opportunity to get over that creative slump you’ve been sitting in. Passion projects that you haven’t been able to move forward with could receive a new perspective or fresh dose of inspiration that you’ve been searching for, so taking the time to focus on those endeavors would be worthwhile during this time. This could also spark something unexpected in your romantic life, especially from someone who usually wouldn’t be your type and is likely to disrupt your current state of mind. It could be playing with fire, but it could also be a fun way to shake things up—tread lightly.
As the New Moon lights up your 10th House of Career and Public Image, how you view your public standing will likely take up much focus. The good news is, if you’re ready to take on new roles or change things up altogether, the New Moon will likely present some opportunities to look toward. Sometimes, we can struggle to know if we are doing a good job, but this period will not only give you some fresh perspective on where you currently stand but also push you to ask yourself where you want to go in life and if you’re currently on the best path to getting there. A reality check can be exactly what is needed to set us free from unwarranted expectations, Aquarius—don’t forget that.
