New Moons signify rebirth, beginnings, a clean slate, the start of a new cycle. This new moon highlights Scorpio qualities (passionate, intuitive, intense, forceful, focused) and 8th house themes (shared resources, endings, transformations). Scorpio is natively ruled by Pluto and co-ruled by Mars. In Scorpio, the Moon seeks truth, answers in order to thoroughly understand situations and will keep digging as many layers deep as necessary to arrive at the core. The Scorpio-Moon gives us the power to let go and to regenerate.

This Scorpio-New Moon (heart & soul) tenses up with Chiron (release) and Neptune (enlightenment) while in harmony with Uranus (radical change) and the North Node (life path). Elsewhere in the sky, Saturn (structure) and Pluto (purging) continue their stressful connection. Allow this new moon to enlighten us on what needs to be released and give us the determination to make the changes necessary to establish a new foundation that steers us toward the path of our journey, if we have strayed.

This new moon occurs on November 16 at 2:14 p.m. (EST) at 25 degrees of Scorpio. Those born within 3 days of November 16 or May 14; or have planets/house angles around 25 degrees of fixed signs may feel the effects of this new moon stronger than most.

For me, this New Moon falls in my 2nd house (income/material value) and within one degree of my 3rd house cusp (thought/communication); it also forms a sextile with my natal Pluto, Ascendant and trine my Descendant. Some changes are developing with regards to income. I may be required to shift my way of thinking, make solid plans, and perhaps, my new source of income will somehow involve 3rd house representations and a business partnership.
