New Moon in Scorpio
Brings Renewal





This month’s powerful Scorpio new moon is the perfect antidote for the toxic energies that were introduced by September’s explosive eclipses and reinforced by October’s angry full moon.

Like all new moons, this one invites you to set intentions, plant seeds and initiate new actions; and just like every Scorpio new moon, it’s saturated in transformational energy that promotes renewal. So what makes this new moon so special? Not a single planet is challenging it. This means that its transformative energy isn’t being diminished by stressful connections and is completely supported.

In addition to supporting intentions for something new, the energy of the Scorpio new moon is especially helpful for planting seeds for change. As it happens, this new moon embraces Mercury (thoughts) and creates a planetary trio (sun, moon, mercury) that will help you clarify what you want to change and, more important, what you need to change. Even better, this planetary trio and Neptune (psychic, transcendence) are engaged in a flow of positive energy that inspires understanding through intuitive ideas and messages. Drenched in Scorpio’s transformational energy, the insights you receive at this time are seeds for deep and lasting change that can lead to renewal in some area of your life.

There are two caveats for this new moon.

1. Whether it’s wearing a full moon or a new moon, Scorpio frequently demands that we release something. Full moons coincide with endings, so it makes sense to let something go at that time. This is a new moon, but whenever Scorpio is involved, so is transformation and/or rebirth. In order to be transformed or reborn, something has to die. So while a Scorpio new moon is about initiation, if there’s anything that needs to be transformed or reborn in your life, you may experience some type of ending as well.

2. You must consciously tap into this energy. Why? Because when all of the aspects (planetary connections) to the new moon are flowing as they are here, there’s an ease to to the energy that promotes harmony but not motivation. Without a hard energy activating it, the positive energy will just sit there (so to speak) and feel good. Since there’s no hard energy to do the job, you need to be the match that ignites this positive energy on your behalf.

So which life areas are being targeted for renewal in your life?
