NEW MOON AT 12 DEGREES OF SCORPIO ON THURSDAY, NOV. 4TH AT 5:14 PM EDT
A Scorpio New Moon signifies a new beginning related to something intense, undermining, transformative, and revealing. Efforts to disguise true motivations fall short. What’s been hidden is clarified. Betrayal is part of the emerging picture – along with efforts to control and manipulate the narrative.
Transformations are known for being slow, incremental, physically and emotionally exhausting. But this New Moon Chart suggests that will most likely not be the case. Uranus is opposing this new Moon. Sudden “shocks to the system” provide a wake-up call that can make the transformative process instantaneous. What’s been stealthily denied is revealed to be true.
So this is a challenging new beginning where we’re finally able to deal with reality and truth. The guess work and confusion is removed. But the “fix” or correction may be harsh. Mars in the sign of Scorpio – the New Moon’s ruler – is ready for a fight and possibly some retaliation.
Mars in Scorpio is not known for his ability to “forgive and forget.” Anger and resentments can simmer beneath the surface for years or lifetimes.
But Uranus has a way of obliterating “in an instant” the old, outdated reality. Something more enlightened is promised. What we’ve been deeply committed to could no longer make sense in terms of our current values and priorities.
Saturn squares this new Moon providing a challenge that relates to detachment and concern for group goals. Personal vendettas need to be released in favor of social, community, and global goals. Threats of retaliation for “bad behavior” in the form of environmental exploitation will most likely be met with the kind of harsh justice Saturn is known for.
Emotionally this New Moon could be challenging. But the aftermath looks brighter. It’s always better to build on a foundation that’s solid and reliable – rather than an illusion. This new Moon encourages us to start over and to build something better from the ground up – now that what’s true and real is being exposed. The death of an “old way of being” seems essential.

ARIES (March 21-April 21)
This new Moon highlights the sector of your chart involving financial partnerships, shared ownership, trust, debts, and deep psychological/emotional issues. Suspicions might grow as something secret is exposed or revealed. What you’ve counted on might not be as secure as you thought it was. In some regard the rug could be pulled out from under you and you might be required to build back something you lost. Most likely this will involve the financial realm.
Venus moves into your 10th house of your career or professional life. It’s likely you’ll be noticed for your expertise and efficiency or your leadership capabilities. You’ll tend to attract exactly what you need in order to be successful.
TAURUS (April 21-May 21)
This new Scorpio Moon highlights the relationship sector of your chart. In fact disruptive, radical changes in your approach to life could trigger some new action that revives an old relationship or gives it some new energy. It’s unlikely you’ll sit back and let things evolve as they will. In fact you might be somewhat pushy and demanding as you recognize the change for something better take hold. Conversations might go to a deeper level. Some profound truths could emerge.
Venus in your 9th house of expansion and travel presents an opportunity for long-distance love and romance. But staying rooted in some life long effort to be the best you can be is unlikely to change. Achievement is important. But this new Moon can feel like someone opened the windows and let a breath of fresh air into the room.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
This new Scorpio beginning involves your 6th house of work, routine, health, self improvement, or dealing with complicated co-worker issues. Behind the scenes you might be dealing with your own private emotional disruptions and some pressure to release and let go. It might be time to make a choice between doing what’s familiar and comfortable vs. doing what you love – even if you have to invent the new role for yourself. You’ll likely make a decision by Nov. 5th. Since May 6th of 2020 it’s likely you’ve been focused on asserting yourself strongly and directly within the communication/connection realm. That phase is winding down as you begin to recognize the need to descend deeper into the realm of truth in a healing capacity. Alone time will begin to feel more important for the purpose of releasing stubborn attachments.
CANCER (June 21-July 21)
This Scorpio New Moon signals a new beginning in the love and romance sector your life. Something intensely sexual, creative, irresistible, and all-consuming may be in play. But something unexpected is thrown into the mix as it relates to your usual routines and possibly a commitment to independence and self-preservation. You might feel exposed in a way that’s uncomfortable for you. Scorpio has a way of making something profoundly intense feel like a threat to your survival. You might need to decide whether to participate or to “get out while you still can.” Fear might be prominent if bad relationships experiences in the past have not yet been fully resolved. A focus on the family may be winding down. A decision is likely to be made on Nov.5th.
LEO (July 21-Aug 21)
This new Moon highlights your 4th house of home and family relationships, complicated by a lack of trust, some resistance to forgiveness, or a repeat of the initial pain or shock. Forgiving and forgetting is a challenge and a risk. But the timing might be right regardless of the resistance involved. It seems worth considering given the important supportive role and security families can provide. Sometimes a second chance is all it takes to enhance your life and to make you feel grounded once again. Something restorative seems necessary as a disruption or wake up call infuses some uncertainty into the professional realm of your life. An important decision with profound consequences may be made on Nov. 5th. A truce seems liberating.
VIRGO (August 21-Sep 21)
It’s likely you’re on the verge of a decision that could involve the provision of important information, some intense negotiations, and something truthful regarding what can be expected as the future unfolds. In the back of your mind you might consider the possibility that you could be exploited or that all of the information you’re receiving might not be entirely accurate. The unknowns will eventually be known. But in the meantime you might feel the need to depend on your intuition and instincts to guide you. The future might feel especially uncertain or disruptive. It might be hard to make future plans with a strong sense of confidence. A powerful 6th sense moves you through the uncertainty – especially as it involves navigating your way through relationships and enhancing your wealth through unusually creative means.
LIBRA (September 21 – October 21)
What’s intensely complicated might involve your sense of security, financial stability, personal values and priorities, or suspicions that m involve financial partnerships. Something disruptive could involve joint ownership, the idea of “throwing your entire lot” in with another, or fully trusting a financial partner. Something more enlightened and honest might meed to be pursued. Venus’s moves into your 4th house of “home, family, and roots” might encourage you to take on a leadership role where financial security and family issues are involved. Plans for the future involving parents, parenting, and something non-traditional or culturally disruptive seems promising. Pre-empting something significantly disruptive and transformative seems wise.
SCORPIO (October 21 – November 21)
It’s likely the relationship sector of your life is being disrupted in a way that could be enlightening with regard to identifying what’s true for you. Maybe the role you play is fraught with suspicion or something complicated related to your natural leaning toward independence. Being decisive could be difficult. Mixed messages might be involved. Keeping secrets could make you feel more in control and less vulnerable. But it might be time to share a secret that’s been blocking a path toward true intimacy or what you naturally crave. Saturn’s square to this new Moon encourages you to examine what keeps you detached and safely disconnected. Something obsessive might be hard to control. Self-discipline and self-awareness is key. It’s likely you’re in the process of deciding what to reveal or whether or not to reveal it. The decision will likely be made by Nov. 5th.
SAGITTARIUS (November 21- December 21)
This new Scorpio Moon falls in your 12th house of dreams, the unconscious mind, issues related to heightened intuition, or the release of what no longer holds much promise. What’s old and no longer useful is likely being washed away. There may be lots of disruption or a wake up call involving your work-life, your health, and your usual routines. Getting along with co-workers might be difficult. Secrets could create explosive conditions. Dishonesty could be exposed. You could be put in an untenable situation with no way out but to tell the truth. It seems wise to trust your instincts. A decision may need to be made regarding your financial future as Venus in Capricorn moves into your 2nd house of financial stability. It’s a good time to set realistic financial goals and to see them through.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 21)
This new Scorpio Moon highlights decisions and turning points as they relate to your involvement with groups, the community, politics, and your social life. Some disruption involving your values and priorities, your love life, creative projects, and ultimately “your legacy” could involve a growing sense of awareness that could be uncomfortable in some regard. You might be privy to information that is not public – or have some clear and painful understanding of the way the real world works. Venus is about to move over your ascendent making you – and what you have to offer – especially attractive. You’re about to move into the segment of your life cycle where everything gets easier and seems to work to your advantage. If you’ve been hiding an affair or keeping some secrets from a partner, realistically you can expect those to be exposed.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 21)
A wake up call and/or some disruption involving the home, family, or domestic routines might highlight, clarify, or advance your professional life in some regard. Achieving what you want most to achieve involves a realistic approach to life, an intense focus on financial success, and the involvement of something related to community service and concerns. Maybe you need to take on a leadership role. Decisions might involve releasing something your emotionally attached to in order to build the kind of future you aspire to. It’s likely you’ll need to be hyper-vigilant when it comes to dealing with hidden or complicated details. You might sense that if another can get away with exploiting you, they might. The stakes are high. Mars in your 10th house encourages you to be assertive and aggressive in going after what you want – but also keenly aware of your responsibility to the group and the community.
PISCES (February 21 – March 21)
This New Moon falls in your 9th house of future expansion, travel, higher education, and liberation. The release of an old belief or change in perspective – possibly involving a sibling – might be part of the emerging/changing picture. Uranus creates some disruption involving communication – how your communicate, and what your choose to share. Jupiter implies that “alone time” could result in a lucky break with regard to your work, health, or sense of self-worth. What’s been invisibly debilitating or ineffective for you could be clarified. You might receive some insight or direction involving a challenging decision. It might be more effective to rely on your instincts rather than trusting “the best information you can find” if your goal is to feel intensely alive and fully engaged.
