This week features a New Moon at 19º Scorpio, on Wednesday, November 11th. This is the same day the Lunar North Node enters Virgo, and therefore new beginnings are double-infused with Scorpio’s concentration and Virgo’s precision. Intensity + work. Dedication + perfection.
Waning until New Moon. This Lunar phase is best for wrapping things up, conservation, and getting rid of things (a dying phase). Not a good time for starting new projects or presenting to groups.
New Moon 19º Scorpio: Wed 11/11 at 12:47pm. New Moons are a time for setting your intentions to begin new projects and/or relationships in the coming month (the conception phase). Not a good time to go public with an idea/project.
Waxing after New Moon. This Lunar phase is best for developing stages of projects, affairs, and businesses (a growth phase), such as brainstorming. Not a good time for editing work, consolidating, or conserving energy.
Specific daily aspects to other planets are in italics.
