NEW MOON IN SCORPIO 15 degrees
A New Moon in the sign of Scorpio will take place on November 7th, 2018. New Moons are a door opening from the Universe. YOU must lay seeds in this area of life AFTER it appears, depending on your sign (and rising sign) to receive the greatest change. The power of this New Moon lasts for six months to a year. The actions you take from November 7th – November 19th will likely come to fruition in very big ways by May 18th, 2019 (plus or minus four days) depending on the success of your initial plans.
SCORPIO ENERGY: INTENSITY IS HERE
The energy forecast for this New Moon will bring forth many of the aspects of the water sign, Scorpio. A sign of passion, sexuality, death, rebirth, and deep feeling, Scorpio is ruled by both Mars and Pluto. With Mars being the planet of action and power, Scorpio energy tends to narrow our focus into precise areas that we tackle and dominate (the specific energy that is activated depends on your sign, and will be outlined below). With Pluto being the planet associated with will, it also is related to intense passion, destruction, and transformation. Pluto’s energy is what allows us to be reborn like a phoenix for the better after we are burnt down to our own ashes after falling into our shadow selves (obsessions, addictions, hidden motives, deep feeling, etc). Whenever Scorpio energy is being activated by a Moon or planet, we are drawn to these deep and intense passions, and often in relation to relationships with others (whether long-term and meaningful, or else to exercise some animalistic release or control). While many of these things may paint a dark picture, they are not. All human beings are a mix of both dark and light, and our hidden, deeper selves can only be acknowledged healthily if we face those deepest desires, obsessions, and feelings to release them in positive ways. This can be mental (business focus, learning, growing the mind), emotional/spiritual (healing, meditation, journaling, service to others), or physical (exercise, consensual sex, masturbation, sports).
ENERGY FORECAST: PASSION AND POWER
This New Moon is one of the most wonderful of 2018 due to the divine dance of the stars. Pluto (planet of transformation, influence, renewal) and Neptune (planet of imagination, divine love, faith) will both be in a lyrical dance with the Sun and the Moon. Pluto’s energy will bring forth a powerful breakthrough to your life, either through the aid of someone who can help you or who believes in you. This energy will also infuse you with a drive to succeed and incredible influence in whichever area the New Moon falls in your life. Any negative obstacles or road blocks that had been before you can now be overturned through this sheer perseverance to change the world around you. Neptune will be sprinkling golden dust over our lives, increasing everyone’s creativity and sensitivity at this point in time, as well as linking you to someone who will provide a meaningful connection to you. This is a time when some people may meet a star-crossed lover, soul mate, or friend who will improve their lives for the better. This transit also brings forth intense creativity and pushes you to look at your hopes and dreams and realize that they can become reality. The collective will notice a spike in artistic and spiritual interests at this time and relationships, in general, should be sweeter and softer. If you have been afraid of deeply connecting with someone due to trauma from the past, you will now realize that the future can be one of happiness and promise rather than just fear and you may finally release the baggage that had been holding you back. Mars (planet of drive, passion) will also be in a splendid dance with Venus (planet of love, beauty, marriage), promising that there will powerful attraction, passion, and chemistry that comes forth. Because of this, existing relationships will flourish, consensual sexuality will be even more enjoyable, and for those who are ready: you may fall in love. If this does not directly effect your personal connections, many will begin projects at this time that will be profoundly creative, highly successful, and will grow for a long time to come.
Find out where your life will be directly affected by reading your Sun Sign and Rising Sign (if you know it).
Anything to do with deep and long-term union is in focus. Loans, debts, joint bank accounts and businesses. Combined projects and ownership. Sexuality will be of increased interest at this time. Any hidden, deep sexual fantasies will be explored. Secrets and things that are not equal. This will be a time where you can forge stronger unions and start new ones. Money is likely to be in focus for many of you. The biggest thing you'll be thinking about is: what do you owe me? What do I owe you? Make sure that you open yourself to deeper connections and to giving and receiving in more fulfilling ways. However, do not take on more “debt” than you can give back – remember, balance in partnerships, however you establish them, is key. You may also release anything that is holding you back, particularly baggage or things that are keeping you from rising higher in life.
Partnerships. Business. Marriage. "Becoming official." Long-term friendships. Unions. You can be blessed with all. This is a good time to assess what you want in a serious partner and what you do not. Make a list. If you have a partner (in business or love), use this time to talk about taking your union to the next level and how you can compromise and work better together. If it’s not going to work, it may be time to let that relationship go. For those looking for key partnerships, it may be a time where you meet a destined one or someone finally steps up in the ways you’ve been hoping for. This may also be a fortunate time in connection with the public.
Work, work, work, work. It’s time to buckle down and get everything moving in motion. Use this time to amplify your work life. Ask for more projects from employers. If you're self-employed, advertise and get your name out there. Ask for referrals. If you work for a business, make sure you're being seen by your superiors. You'll also be focusing on your fitness and daily rhythm. How do you balance your work-life? Anything to do with fitness/health is also in focus: want to lose weight? Kick that bad habit? Quit smoking? Get on a plan. Meet a doctor. Stop waiting. Do it now. If you want to get a new job, this would be a time to be rocking out those resumes. Use this time well. Grind. It’ll pay off.
Love, romance, fun, adventure, and creativity shine for you now. You'll be more attractive, so if you're single, get your face out there! Meet people. It's better to meet people through friends or socially rather than apps. Plan some events. Some of you may be moving and changing up your lifestyle. Embrace every ounce of change that is coming. You're worth it. Also, there may be a focus on art projects and you may feel more inspired than any recent times. Embrace that muse. It was meant for you. If you have children, they may be taking focus for you. Allow a lyrical, romantic, and beautiful spotlight to hit your life and inspire your heart for the entire year to come. Your heart will be lit on fire.
The foundation of your life can change. The way you love yourself, self-love, as well as everything to do with family, home, your "chosen home/family," Mother/Father relationships, and anything to do with domestic matters will be apparent now. Jump on real estate if you can. Update your living space. Buy some new furniture, give a wall a fresh coat of paint, look for that perfect cooking set for you to entertain with. Being domestic is going to go well for you, now, so invite friends over or use this time to enjoy your home. Also, you’re going to be considering what truly makes you happy and if you have the things in your life you need, particularly self-respect and self-love. Look in the mirror and ask yourself: "Do I like myself? What do I truly need? What makes me happy? Am I on a path that is fulfilling emotionally?” Answer these questions truthfully.
Get ready to expand all areas of communication. Focus on advertising, social media, grow your presence online or with people, and anything ruled by communication will flourish. Meet new people. Reach out to new contacts. Ask others for new contacts. Submit a resume. If you want a job in any of these areas listed, get it, because you can. Writing. Agencies. Contracts. It's all lighting up. If you are launching a campaign in any of these areas, it will be divinely blessed by the cosmos. The time is now. Lay the seeds.
Money seems to be about to come in – or ways to generate more of it. Increase your income by looking for better jobs or by asking for a raise. Show you're qualified. Update that resume. Also focus on the things you "own," especially your possessions. People are not possessions, but if you look at people in that way, make sure they're yours, dependent on you, and you will lock that down. What do you own? Make sure it's yours to stay -- because it can be. If you're looking to buy things, you're likely to have luck.
This New Moon is ALL ABOUT YOU, and that means you are in the spotlight. Use this time to evaluate who you are, what you want, and where you are going. You can utilize the power of this New Moon in any way you’d like, but it is the only New Moon to fall in your sign until next year. Use this time to analyze how you want to shine – and then go for it! Put yourself out there. Get a fresh new haircut, wardrobe, or style. Start that project that’s been on the backburner that you’ve always wanted to pursue. Become the person you were meant to be. If your birthday falls three days before or after November 7th, this will be a BIG year for you. It will be one with lots of new beginnings, new relationships, and you will see how this year marks a major change for your life. You may move to a new home or city or see a huge shift in your lifestyle and view of the world. This will also occur if you have 15 degrees Scorpio as an Ascendant/Rising Sign (+/- 4 degrees). Be ready! Here it comes.
All things that are hidden and growing will soon come to light for you. Your time is coming. Every dream, fire, desire, and focus is in your scope now. Things may come out that you've long hidden or things that have been hidden by other people, so be aware. This New Moon will "clear out" the past year, and get you ready to finally shine. Lay any seed you want to germinate slowly. It will need more time than most. Lay your biggest endeavors at the next New Moon because it’ll be in your sign. Use this time now to release the past and let go of pain and enemies.
Your dreams and aspirations, as well as friends, are heating up. What do you want long-term and how do you get it? Think about that vision you've always wanted. Make a plan. You're good at that. Create the steps. Make it possible. This can cover any area of life. However, you're about to heat up a lot of social fun, and you're likely to find these dreams align with new people you meet, so say YES to your social engagements and watch your coming year light up with stronger friendships and ferocity.
This New Moon will help lay a pattern of success in your career for you that will last six months to a year. The seeds you lay around this time will crown you in success, glory, or public recognition. Send resumes. No updated resume yet? Do it now. And make sure you make a list of some top candidates you want to apply to. Search out anyone and anything that can improve your power, “fame,” and status in your life. Sometimes, this even means aligning yourself with people or partners in order to create united power. If you want a public marriage, relationship, or business engagement, this would be the time to lay that forward too. Pay attention to offers that come by, new projects that are gaining momentum, or any lover/partner that may able to lift you to the stars.
Grow your mind, expand your horizons, and travel are open roads to you now. Academics, spirituality, and media (public relations, publication, television, writing of all sorts but on a very large scale) can be blessings to you. Find ways to better yourself by looking at how you are connected to the greater world. Join groups. Fine tune skills. Find mentors. Ask for help. This is a pivotal moment to get your life together before you are about to ramp up to career momentum at the next New Moon. New experiences are awaiting you, so buckle up and get ready for the ride. You’re going to flourish.
