Your New Moon in Scorpio Horoscope & Affirmation, According To Your Zodiac Sign
A transformative and bewitching new moon is over the horizon, but rest assured, its perplexing energy is not for the faint of heart. As you may know, the new moon phase presents us with an opportunity to re(new) our inner world; this is equivalent to an emotional reset, and a new beginning. When transiting through a fixed water sign such as Scorpio, however, this particular lunar phase will simultaneously challenge us—both as individuals and as a collective—to confront the darker parts of ourselves. Keeper of secrets and everything lurking beneath the surface, the essence of Scorpio is symbolic of death, renewal, and unseen forces. Having said that, take a moment to check which astrological house belongs to 12 degrees Scorpio, as this is where the moon will renew itself on Thursday, Nov. 4. Vanishing into the darkness at exactly 5:44 p.m. EST, this lunation will serve as a powerful prelude of what’s to come when the Nodes Fate (North Node + South Node) activate the Taurus-Scorpio axis early in 2022, as will November’s full moon partial lunar eclipse.
Partaking in shadow work is definitely easier said than done, but there is no better time to start than now. Although, come to think of it, there’s really nowhere to hide with so many planets traveling through fixed signs. What I mean by that is, the sun, moon, and Mars are in Scorpio; Saturn and Jupiter are in Aquarius, while Uranus continues its journey through Taurus. For those of you wondering, the fixed modality is notorious for its ruthless stubbornness, but by that same token, it can remain contained and steadily focused on its objective which is respectable. For instance, fixed signs—Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius—have the ability to sustain the magic of their element, whether that be earth, fire, air and/or water. In the particular case of Scorpio, however, its fixed water has the power to unveil, probe, and penetrate through the mysterious depths that exist within our emotional undercurrents, as well as the unseen motives of others. This is important to keep in mind during this time, especially with three heavenly bodies conjugating in the mystifying sign of Scorpio.
With the essence of this fixed water sign in mind, along with the general meaning of the new moon phase, let’s take a closer look at the astrological aspects occurring during this lunation. For starters, both the sun and the moon will be in direct opposition to revolutionary Uranus—the planet of breakthrough, innovation and freedom—as it will be sitting at exactly 12 degrees of Taurus. To say that this aspect is likely to catch everyone off guard would be an understatement. This is especially true when considering Taurean themes such as agriculture, banking, sustenance, security, and value systems. Needless to say, Uranus has been revolutionizing our perspective on the above themes for quite some time now, but there’s still more for us to learn. This fixed earth sign is simplistic, practical, and conserving which, in turn, invites us to cultivate similar practices in our lives. Taurus is also wealth; hence the rise of digital currencies and virtual opportunities to earn a living. The catch? The new moon’s opposition to Uranus could trigger shocking and unexpected news surrounding money, and stability.
Whether it be individually and/or collectively speaking, the tension and upheaval is almost inevitable. However, before you stress the series of potential outcomes, stay grounded and remember it’s all happening in our favor. We’re all leveling up, and something’s gotta give. On another note, Mars will be sitting in a wide conjunction to the sun and moon in Scorpio, amidst forming a challenging square to taskmaster Saturn. Mars accelerates, energizes, and willfully turns up the heat. Saturn, on the other hand, pumps the breaks and creates boundaries. Friction much? This is one of the many reasons we could experience an emotional tug-of-war during this time. For instance, you could suddenly learn something significant that inspires the need for rapid transformation, and yet Saturn will want you to consider the foundation of your future in the process. It’s hard to think long term in the heat of the moment, isn’t it? Collectively, this could have something to do with authority, law, and general restriction. However, with Mars fighting relentlessly towards its goal, there’s also a significant amount of pressure preparing to erupt.
It’s no secret that we are in the midst of a massive shift, but rest assured, there are more than a few shocking secrets that are bound to resurface in the process. The good news is, Mercury will be in harmony with expansive Jupiter which, in turn, enlightens and motivates us to look towards the future with hope. Ideas are larger than life itself during this time, and they are powerful catalysts for what is yet to come. Moreover, Venus—Taurus’ planetary ruler, and the planet of abundance, pleasure, relationships, wealth and values—will be at 29 degrees Sagittarius, which is referred to as a critical degree. Equivalent to a “graduation” of sorts, as it is simultaneously presenting us with an opportunity to expand when it comes to Venusian themes. Venus will officially enter Saturn-ruled Capricorn the following day on Nov. 5, so it’s safe to say this is yet another prelude of what’s to come. More importantly, we’re being called to use our discernment when it comes to our energetic investments, and the people we share these intimate parts of ourselves with.
Again, themes of “give and take,” whether you look at it in terms of the world at large, or within our intimate partnerships, are being highlighted during this time. Who we choose to let in has everything to with the revelations that will soon come forth. In the meantime, tap into these fixed energies, and find your center. Guard your energy, and think twice before you invest in something that isn’t worthy of your precious essence. Last but certainly not least, use the energies of this lunation to help you purge what is no longer serving you, and/or align with where you’re going. Release, regenerate, and be gentle with yourself in the process.
Read your new moon in Scorpio horoscope and affirmation according to your zodiac sign below:
An electric new moon will touch down on your intimate eighth house of sex, mergers, shared resources, and energetic exchanges today, bringing emphasis to themes surrounding the “give and take” that exist within your one-on-one partnerships. And with your red-hot planetary ruler in close proximity to the sun and moon, there is intense passion and super strength available when it comes down to your commitments. Luna’s opposition to rebellious Uranus—via your stability-seeking second house of comfort, finances, and value systems—could catch you off guard, but not if you’re open to exploring your options in the process. New Moon Affirmation: I am consciously aware of my self-worth and personal power; my energy is exclusive.
A supercharged lunation will bring new beginnings to your committed seventh house of agreements, compromise, and significant others, highlighting everything from the foundation of a romantic partnership to the reciprocity between you, and your business alliances. Meanwhile, Luna’s opposition to freedom-loving Uranus in your sign could be the reason why you suddenly find yourself having a change of heart. Either way, this is an opportunity for you to reflect on the value of your current connections. Are they trustworthy? Is your relationship on solid ground? Mars continues to energize this area of your chart, so competitiveness is almost inevitable. New Moon Affirmation: The individual freedom I seek is a reflection of the boundaries I set for myself.
Your day-to-day lifestyle is about to change. For instance, a powerful new moon will ignite your responsible sixth house of wellness, daily rituals, and due diligence, bringing new beginnings and spiritual fertility to themes surrounding your current schedule, acts of service, and general mindfulness. What is your idea of productivity? With Uranus revolutionizing your twelfth house of unconscious energies, this is also an opportunity for you to break free from patterns that have been limiting your potential. Although, with red-hot Mars in the mix, you could find yourself obsessively preoccupied with something that isn’t necessarily in your control. Take it easy. New Moon Affirmation: My higher self is guiding me towards my highest good; I am transforming.
Express yourself, don’t repress yourself. A brilliant new moon in your sister-sign, Scorpio, will ignite your romantic fifth house of love, passion, pleasure, and creatrix musings, bringing transformative new beginnings to themes surrounding everything from your love language, to your artistic expression. Your idea of fulfillment is also being highlighted during this time, but Luna’s opposition to freedom-loving Uranus could trigger some unexpected challenges when in regards to your social circles. Cultivate balance, but don’t lose sight of what’s in your heart of hearts. Venus’ last dance in your sixth house of due diligence brings forth the opportunity to indulge in something you love, even if your freedom comes with a price. New Moon Affirmation: I open my heart to new experiences; it is my compass when stepping outside of my comfort zone.
You know it’s Scorpio season when you suddenly can’t help but feel the need to retreat, and build a fort around your sanctuary. Having said that, this year’s new moon in the same sign will touch down on your domestic fourth house of home, family, and innermost feelings, but it will simultaneously make an opposition to rebellious Uranus in the process. Experiencing a shift in your professional life? You and I both know it’s been a long time coming, but there’s some work that needs to be done in the home front before you embark on this new journey. For some, the erratic essence of Uranus could shake things up a bit in your personal life, so the key is to find firm footing. More importantly, don’t hesitate to lean on your loved ones for support, even if that means rekindling the relationship you had once upon a time. New Moon Affirmation: When all else fails, my ancestors and guides keep me grounded; I am safe and eternally loved.
Happy new moon in Scorpio. Glimmering through your curious third house of communication, thought process, and immediate exchanges, this lunation is presenting you with an opportunity to communicate, discover, and dig for the answers you’ve been seeking. For some of you, this lunation is about collaborating and/or partaking in community affairs. The catch? Luna’s opposition to freedom-loving Uranus could create an emotional tug-of-war, especially when it comes to your worldly ventures and general belief systems. You could be reluctant to embark on something that doesn’t necessarily align with your vision, but Luna is asking you to reconsider. Keep in mind, Mars will also be in the mix, so steer away from combative debates and manipulation. New Moon Affirmation: My perception and thought process is experiencing a high-vibrational metamorphosis.
You’re focusing on your pentacle, and making yourself a priority. This is especially true when considering this year’s Scorpio new moon hovering over your security-seeking second house of comfort, money-making abilities, and sense of stability. However, in addition to having audacious Mars—celestial ruler of your relationship sector—in the mix, Luna will simultaneously make an opposition to rebellious Uranus via your eighth house of mergers. This could, in turn, shake things up when it comes to the dynamic of your intimate unions. Is this investment, source of income, and/or relationship worthy of your time and energy? With Mercury in your sign, not to mention in harmony with expansive Jupiter, you have the mindset and vision to make things work successfully. New Moon Affirmation: My ability to depend on another stems from the way I depend on myself; I recognize and honor my value.
A new era awaits you, Scorpio. This year’s transformative new moon in your sign is nothing short of extraordinary, despite the undeniable challenges that may come along with it. You’re stepping into a brand new version of you, and beginning a new chapter in the process. The key is to follow your intuition, especially since erratic Uranus will be making a direct opposition to both the sun and moon in your sign. Expect the unexpected when it comes to the dynamic of your one-on-one relationships. Fortunately, a sweet trine between Mercury in your secretive twelfth house of unconscious patterns, and Jupiter via your fourth house of ancestral lineage, brings forth some much-needed enlightenment, so pay attention. It’s time to reclaim your power. New Moon Affirmation: I am stepping into an era of transformation and abundance; no one can take my power away.
You’re letting go, and surrendering to the flow of the universe. A new moon in cathartic Scorpio will touch down on your secretive twelfth house of closure, dreams, karma, hidden agendas, and all things behind the scenes, bringing new beginnings to your relationship with spirit. Keep in mind, erratic Uranus will simultaneously make an opposition to the sun and moon, amidst activating your sixth house, which challenges you to revisit unhealthy habits and secret coping mechanisms that aren’t serving you. For some, the presence of Uranus could disturb your desire for peace and solitude, but this continues to be an opportunity for you to transmute the darkness into light, both in your personal and professional life. It’s a matter of going deep. New Moon Affirmation: I unapologetically prioritize my mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing.
There’s no such thing as an individual without a community. Having said that, this year’s new moon in Scorpio will touch down on your socially conscious eleventh house of associations, community, and sense of belonging in the world, bringing new beginnings and magical fertility to themes surrounding your hopes, wishes, dreams, and social circles. The catch? Luna’s opposition to rebellious Uranus—via your romantic fifth house of love, passion, pleasure, and self expression—could evoke a fiery inspiration from within that could potentially catch your peers off guard. Regardless of what the case may be, don’t hesitate to tap into the lunar energies in order to integrate this unique flair with your place in the community, whether it be in-person or via social media. New Moon Affirmation: When I am authentic, I am in my power; I choose to surround myself with individuals who are loyal to my growth.
Keep your eyes on the prize. A powerful new moon will touch down on your public tenth house of ambition, career, legacy, and reputation in the world, bringing new beginnings to themes surrounding everything from your professional life to your sense of authority. Are you contemplating whether you should embark on a new professional journey? It doesn’t hurt to slowly-but-surely plan ahead, especially when considering Luna’s opposition to your modern ruler, Uranus. In other words, amidst your decision to take action towards your goals, you could experience some disruption in the home front. Whether it be in regards to your living space and/or family dynamic, make sure you’re building upon a solid foundation. The change you seek is seeking you. New Moon Affirmation: The connection I cultivate with the public is a reflection of my inner foundation; my intuition fuels my sense of authority.
You’re on a magical journey of self-discovery. This is especially significant when considering the energy of this month’s new moon in Scorpio, as it will glimmer through your expansive ninth house of faith, wisdom, and belief systems. Something is calling you, and inspiring you to venture into the unknown. However, Luna’s erratic opposition to freedom-loving Uranus via your curious third house of communication, thought process, and immediate exchanges could create an emotional tug-of-war when it comes to your perception on something, vs. what’s actually waiting for you over the horizon. Mercury will also be hovering over your psychic eighth house of mergers, so if you’re not partaking in taboo-like conversations, then chances are you’re secretly contemplating your next move. Some of you may even share some of your wisdom with the masses via publishing and media opportunities. New Moon Affirmation: My third eye is leading me down a rightful path; the more open-minded I am, the more I will learn.
