New Moon in Scorpio ~ November 5/6, 2010

Scorpio via Sodahead

Scorpio-Suns and risings, rejoice! It's a new moon in your sign. The past few weeks have been filled with "excitement" for you -- some good, some unexpected, and other times, you might have just wanted to be left alone. At one point, we have four celestial bodies in Scorpio! So much action in one sign can affect our day to day a lot since each of us are affected differently by the energies around us. And Scorpio is an energy that could get too intense for some. Well, a new moon is upon us. Time for a renewal!

New Moons signify rebirth, beginnings, a clean slate, the start of a new cycle. This new moon highlights Scorpio qualities (intuitive, passionate, devoted, focused) and 8th house themes (in the physical realm, debt and shared resources; in the spiritual plane, elimination and transformation).

Scorpio is jointly governed by Pluto, who is busy restructuring our foundation in Capricorn and Mars, who is actively pursuing possibilities in Sagittarius. 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 (blending energies of heart & soul) occurs when two other planets are also in Scorpio -- Mercury (thought/communication) and Venus (relationships/finances). Venus is also still retrograde (introspective).

Elsewhere in the sky, another pairing, Pluto (transformation; also, Scorpio's ruler) and the North Node (life path), gets ever closer to perfecting which have longer term impact on "where we are going" or "what we are doing, should be doing or want to do". They will perfect their conjunction on November 9. Also, happening during the Scorpio-New Moon is a difficult alignment between Mercury (thought) and Neptune (insight), where our minds may challenged to perceive situations from a more spiritual or intuitive method versus a logical or practical means.

During this new moon phase (approximately two weeks), let's renew our hearts and minds. Realize that it's never too late to make a change. And although any change can be daunting, with thorough planning, commitment, hard work and passion, success is imminent. This is also an ideal time to consider alternative avenues or methods to what you're used to. Seed the soul with what motivates the heart. Therein, lies a beginning.

This new moon occurs on November 5 at 9:52 p.m. (PST) / November 6 at 12:52 a.m. (EST) and at 14 degrees of Scorpio. Those born within 3 days of November 5 or May 3; or have planets/house angles around 14 degrees of fixed signs may feel the effects of this new moon stronger than most.

For me, this New Moon trines my Mars (action/motivation), squares my Venus (love/money) and oppose my Saturn (structure/responsibilities); it falls in my 2nd house of income and values (as a Virgo-rising) and in my 5th house of creative projects (as a Cancer-Sun). While all that is happening, Pluto and the North Node continue to oppose my natal Sun and will keep doing it for quite some time. Scrap the old plans. Draw up something new. Get over whatever disappointments there may have been. Focus on a new path. Be reminded that I am only limited by my own self-imposed ceiling. Okay, good luck with that :)
