Tonight is mischief night, and there’s a new moon in Scorpio (7º). New moons are new beginnings, and this one is a subtle, secretive one…yet determined. What you are starting to develop will be kept close to the chest, as Scorpio’s top priority is self-protection.
Mercury is close to the sun/moon at 9º Scorpio, so information is key right now. Perhaps a new insight will prompt your transformation process (Mercury in Scorpio probes into the deepest recesses of the human psyche!). This could be brought on by a conversation, or while doing research, but the “aha!” moment will involve your intuition. Meditation or using tarot/oracle cards can be helpful right now.
Neptune makes a harmonious trine from 9º Pisces, upping the psychic factor during this new moon. It also increases your powers of visualization and faith. Scorpio can dip into the underworld easily, given that its ruling planet is Pluto. But with Neptune’s aid, you are better able to remain positively focused! Trust whatever intel you receive at the emotional level, because not everything can be logically explained when Water signs are dominant.
Whatever steps you decide to take over the next week, know that they are moving you in the right direction. The Lunar Nodes are in the mix, at 11º Virgo (North Node) and Pisces (South Node). Their rulers Mercury and Neptune are part of this new moon as explained above, and they are trine one another. Use this new moon to release what needs to be let go, in order to move on (SN) and propel you into the future (NN)!
The natal house this new moon occurs in, and any aspects to natal planets/angles/nodes, will better explain what is beginning for you. In general, this moon will be felt strongest by those with anything from 6º – 9º of the Fixed or Water signs.
November’s full moon will occur on November 14th at 22º Taurus.
