FEATURE — A new moon in Scorpio ushers in vibrant new beginnings — but they could come as abrupt surprises.
On Monday, Nov. 13, at 2:27 a.m. MDT, a new moon at 20 degrees Scorpio will align with Mars and oppose Uranus and Taurus, which indicates a combination of passion and unpredictability, especially in areas of life in need of change.
A sign of significant transformation, Scorpio is a fixed water sign often characterized as the Phoenix rising from the ashes. It represents the death-rebirth cycle and reminds us that with every ending comes a new beginning and vice versa. Death, when considered metaphorically, has to do with endings and closures; in this way, to live is to die a series of deaths, with each death ultimately serving as a catalyst for the soul’s evolution on Earth.
Following the new moon ring of fire eclipse in Libra, this new moon picks up on that powerful force to change, carrying the energy forward into a new part of life depending on your Zodiac sign.
This also stimulates the area of life Uranus has been transiting since it entered the sign of Taurus over five years ago. Known as a planet of abrupt change, Uranus has been pushing us to restructure an area of life to find solid grounding.
So what does this mean for you and your sign? Find out below.
March 21-April 19
A new moon in your eighth house indicates profound beginnings in matters related to intimacy, shared resources and self-empowerment, dear Aries. This is a time to contemplate the line between what’s yours and what’s shared. Perhaps there’s something you need to let go of in terms of a side hustle in order to create space for something new. Or maybe in order to elevate yourself to the next level, a deeper sense of vulnerability is required. In opposition to Uranus in your second house, this new moon could bring about a surprise in matters related to money and self-worth. With so much emphasis on resources, it may be time to consider your cash flow and untapped resources.
April 20-May 20
With Uranus in your sign opposing this new moon in your seventh house, matters related to relationships unveil themselves now and offer new beginnings, dear Taurus. For some, this could be the beginning or end of a partnership, or you could see the status of a relationship change in terms of commitment. But this also pulls your focus to the relationship you have with yourself. Relationships often serve as a reflection of who we are. So as we grow, some relationships fall away. Take stock of the people around you and have the courage to walk in your authentic light.
May 21-June 20
A new moon in your sixth house opposing Uranus in your 12th house indicates new beginnings related to how you serve yourself and how you serve others, dear Gemini. This could illuminate health habits that are inhibiting your ability to show up for others in the way you’d like. You could be faced with a dilemma regarding how you manage time. Perhaps you’ve been feeling a desire to clean up your daily routine, while simultaneously seeking escape. Or perhaps a large portion of your day feels like you’re stuck in auto-pilot. Now is the time to break out of this rut.
June 21-July 22
While this new moon falls in your fifth house of self-expression and pleasure, it opposes rebellious Uranus in your 11th house of friendships and future, dear Cancer. Uranus has been in this sector of your sky for five years now, urging you to reconsider your dreams and with whom you spend your time. In opposition to this new moon, this cosmic influence suggests a new beginning related to how you connect with others — romantically, socially, professionally, etc. This could come down to refining how you express yourself in order to attract like-minded people into your life.
July 23-Aug. 22
Highlighting your sector of home and family, this new moon is offering major new beginnings in matters related to security, dear Leo. This is because the planet of radical change Uranus, which has been transiting your 10th house of career and legacy for some five years, stands opposite the moon. This could mean an issue at home forces a change on the career front or vice versa and is meant to help you shore up your financial and emotional security. You may discover a way to make more money from home.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
It’s time to rethink how you think, dear Virgo, as this new moon illuminates your third house of communication and short-distance travel. Opposite to rebellious Uranus in your ninth house, abundant new beginnings are on the horizon in the way you perceive the world around you. What you learned as a child may come at odds with a paradigm shift underway and underscore the root of a miscommunication. You are reconnecting with your voice now. Expect sudden changes related to matters of travel, transportation or surprise news from a sibling.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Your values are coming into focus now, both in terms of material possessions and self-esteem, as this new moon illuminates your second house, dear Libra. In opposition to the planet of unpredictable change in your eighth house of shared resources and passive income, this new moon is offering vibrant new beginnings related to money and resources. It may be that you are missing out on opportunities due to a type of scarcity mentality or a feeling that there is not enough. It’s time to turn your attention to the abundance of possibilities.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
With this new moon falling in your sign, this is the awakening of a new year for you, dear Scorpio. It’s time to plant seeds for the year ahead, and you might consider creating a vision board or writing out long-term goals. In opposition to Uranus, which has been moving through your house of partnership over the last five years, this new moon also puts a spotlight on relationships. It’s time to take inventory of the people in your life, as this plays a significant role in your own life’s trajectory. For some, this could bring about a change in how you relate to someone or the status of a relationship. Someone may surprise you now.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
A new moon in your 12th house ignites new beginnings in matters related to dreams, the subconscious and imagination, dear Sagittarius. This is a deeply spiritual place for a new moon and could indicate the final page of a chapter coming to a close, as next month the new moon will fall in your sign, initiating a new cycle. In opposition to Uranus in your sixth house, this new moon will reveal how your daily routine serves inner beliefs about yourself and illustrates the connection between conscious living and subconscious patterns. It’s time now to investigate how you spend the 24 hours allotted in a day.
Dec. 22–Jan. 19
Matters of friendship and future come sharply into focus now, dear Capricorn, as this new moon falls in your 11th house. How well do you relate with the people in your circle and how well are your current goals aligned with your dreamiest dreams? This new moon also stands opposite rebellious Uranus in your fifth house of pleasure, self-expression and children, which indicates a possible surprise that changes how you connect to others and how you connect to yourself. Make time for creative exploration, as it could point the way to people and projects that feel made just for you.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
This new moon is of particular importance for you, dear Aquarius, as your ruling planet Uranus will form a powerful opposition with it, lighting up your sectors of survival. The new moon is in your 10th house of career and legacy, and Uranus is in your fourth house of inner security and home. A surprise that has to do with home or family may trigger a need to make a change on the career front. For some, this could launch you into a new career altogether. Since Uranus first entered your sector of home five years ago, it has been causing some instability as a way for you to secure a solid foundation, and for many, a career is a large part of that. Use this time to consider the relationship between your home and career.
Feb. 19-March 20
A new moon in the ninth house strikes new beginnings in matters related to long-distance travel, adventure and spirituality, dear Pisces. This is about seeking a higher wisdom through engaging in anything foreign. Opposing this new moon, however, is Uranus in your third house of communication. This could indicate a sudden realization about your past that is blocking you from expanding your horizons. Make time to journal, as answers may appear between the lines.
