We have our new moon in Scorpio on the 13th of November 2023, it is at 20 degrees and 44 minutes of Scorpio and in conjunction with Mars and opposing Uranus. This in itself calls us to begin again, with Scorpio there may be instability in because Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and was traditionally ruled by Mars and this pulls in a rather unruly vibe. Scorpio is an intense new moon that is deeply reflective and internal.
Our new moon is at 1.27am Pacific, 4.27am Eastern & 9.27am UK time and it still has an eclipse frequency. So think change and upheaval to some degree and moving in a whole new direction.
Scorpio calls us to focus in on all things money, power, intimacy, control, secrets, and authenticity. With a new moon new starts can come up in all or some of these areas. Think a new beginning punctuated by a sense of depth and perception that is usually reserved for your secret private side. Think transformation of the things that are hidden and your deep unconscious patterns. New intentions are asked of us that get us to dive into the truth of the way we want to live.
The Scorpio lessons ask us to challenge what we think is correct and what isn’t.
Is there any part of you that is still anchored in negative traits or past times, such as addiction, debt, and feeling out of control ~ this new moon highlights a time to learn how to deal with these areas by understanding how we got in to them in the first place.

With Moon, Mars and the sun opposing Uranus at 21 degrees Rx in Taurus. Change is highlighted, Uranus asks us to break up the old within our energetic frequency, and it’s also the planet that helps us to be visionary creatives. This could possibly bring up emotions that make you feel as if you’re stuck out to sea with no way to get back to land. This opposition asks you to examine the feelings and let the old and outmoded dissolve, ask yourself what they mean. The big questions being what are you being called to learn and to know about yourself? Think emotional and think something that you have maybe held on to for too long.
Do watch out for impulsivity which can be brought in by this Uranus opposition. There is a sense of being irrational or impatient with regard to things not moving as fast as you like. Let a gentle acceptance takes its place and work methodically using baby steps that build up.
With Scorpio assisting you to remember that you are the sole creator of the reality you are living and with Uranus’s support once you have got through the emotion, you’ll be able to create your dreams in an intentional way by tapping into creativity.
Uranus is also sextile Neptune at 25 degrees in Pisces which brings in the sexy element. Freedom loving, freedom seeking energy is highlighted. It can also bring in a level of sensitivity held by the murky element of watery scorpio, so do watch out for this too.
