#295 - Weekly Energy Update for November 12, 2023: New Moon in Scorpio
This new moon in Scorpio is the first New Moon after Eclipse season. It’s the first time since 2021 that a New Moon in Scorpio isn't an eclipse. This would normally be a welcomed break, yet the energy is still pretty intense.
We know that Scorpio season is intense, and it will last for another week and a half. In addition, the sun has been very active lately. There have been solar flares and geomagnetic storms that have shaken everything up. And now the New Moon in Scorpio is adding to this energy!
Scorpio is an insightful and perceptive sign that can see right through all the BS. Scorpio is a master of digging up and revealing the truth. Scorpio brings the unconscious to the surface and insists that we look within and be honest with ourselves to let go and move on.
This new moon is opposite Uranus and is going to bring sudden and abrupt changes to our lives. We’re talking about shakeups, breakups, and breakdowns. These events may not be pleasant, but they ultimately lead us to the road that is meant for us by making us confront realities we have been avoiding.
Additionally, there is a Mars Cazimi on Thursday, the 17th. A Mars Cazimi is an exact conjunction between the Sun and Mars. Mars Cazimis occur every two years but we haven’t had one in Scorpio for thirty-two years. Planets enter a new cycle when they join the Sun. We can think of this Cazimi as an opportunity to make a fresh start.
This is not a comfortable new moon. Yes, new beginnings are on the horizon, but we need to let go and move through some discomfort first. To clear away what holds us back we have to know what’s kept us stuck. And to help us with that clarity are the new moon, Scorpio, Mars, Saturn, and even the solar flares.
But aren’t you ready to move on to the next, better iteration of yourself? Aren’t you ready to just rip off the Band-Aid and get on with it? This New Moon is part of that process.
