The November new moon is happening on the 7th, and it’s bringing with it the dark energy of Scorpio. We know new moons are usually good, but what will this one bring—and how can we make it work for us?
What is a new moon again?
New moons represent the beginning of the lunar cycle, so astrologically speaking, they are the real first of the month. As such, they set the cosmic trajectory for the coming 30 days, giving us the opportunity to take the reins on behalf of what we want.
What is so special about this one?
This new moon is in Scorpio, so it’s joining the sun, the moon and Jupiter in the sign of intense emotional desire. That’s our signal from the cosmos to dig deep into our wants and needs. This isn’t about the shallow stuff that we like (nothing wrong with that mustard-colored settee you’ve been eyeing!), but about the core of what makes us happy, and how we want to use this coming month to get us there.
What does it mean?
This new moon is still a positive one—despite coinciding with Venus, Uranus and Neptune all in retrograde. Because there is so much backward planetary energy surrounding this lunar event, it’s more of an invitation to contemplate goals rather than to act. So make your ten wishes, as always, right after it hits at 11:01 a.m. Eastern, and think of them as a pre-to-do list for when December rolls around.
