Hey babes and happy new moon in Scorpio. I’m so excited about this new moon because 1) this month is my Solar Return and 2) Scorpio / Pluto energy is such a potent and transformative time. Not only is it a new moon in Scorpio, this weeks planet transit is pretty magical and awesome.
Like I said last month in this post, the New Moon symbolizes new beginnings, a clean slate, and each new moon will have its own magical depending which zodiac sign it is in. This month the new moon is in Scorpio. Scorpio symbolizes life, death, and resurrection. It also represents the shadows, how we can reinvent ourselves, and rebirth. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the god of the underworld. This new moon is the most magical one of the year and it wants us to be open to receiving, it wants us to dig deep and confront our fears, it wants us to unveil all the things we keep hidden, it wants us to transform. Allow yourself to feel deeply, to open up, to receive, and to grow.
This moon has some amazing aspects; the North Node being in Cancer, Jupiter moving into Sagittarius, and a trine with Neptune in Pisces. Like I mentioned up above, this new moon is the most magical one this year. Take advantage of it.
North Node in Cancer / South Node in Capricorn (November 6th):
The North Node represents where we’re going, our future, our destiny. The South Node represents the gifts you bring into this lifetime, your comfort zone, what you know best. The North Node moved into Cancer and the South Node moved into Capricorn yesterday, November 6th, and whoa nelly I think we felt the effects of that. You see, North North wants us to embrace our intuition, our femininity, and it wants us to take care of ourselves (and others). Guess what happened last night? More than 100 women were elected to the Congress.
Jupiter in Sagittarius (November 8th):
Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius, so he is feeling at home with this particular transit. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, so wherever he goes, he expands. Jupiter leads us to new opportunities, he gives us luck, he expand ours thoughts spiritually and physically. Sagittarius is always in search of truth, loves to travel, optimism, and dedication. So allow this transit to expand all this goodness for you. Be open to receiving new opportunities and ideas.
The Tarot card that represents Scorpio is, well, Death. A lot of people who are not well versed in Tarot typically feel like Death is a “bad” card to draw, but in fact, it’s actually a pretty good one to get. Death represents change, transformation, and rebirth (just like the planet Pluto). Death is about overcoming our fears, digging deep into the own and facing our demons head on. It’s literally symbolizing the Phoenix rising from the ashes.
So ask yourself:
What are some old and unneeded parts of yourself that you know you need to let go of but may have a hard time doing so? What are some things you want to change?
Just like last new moon, draw two cards - one will represent what you need to release (the left) and the second card will represent what you are cultivating (the right).
The first card I drew was the Nine of Cups and it is governed by Jupiter in Pisces and represents savoring the moment and all the things that life has to offer - it’s pleasures. Life is happening now, right in front of you. Enjoy it. So maybe what this card is trying to tell me is to release the anxiety of what the future may hold and focus on the now. Enjoy the now. The second card the drew was Queen of Swords and it is associated by Libra. The Queen of Swords is a quick-thinker, honest, strong-willed, and symbolizes bringing order to chaos and setting boundaries. She tells to embrace our strengths, to be more self-disciplined, to speak up for myself more, to create health boundaries. This card hit it right on the money with what I’ve been thinking about the past few days, and that is - being more self-disciplined (in my studies especially), to set better boundaries, and to start speaking out instead of feeling like I need to be the “bigger” person.
Set your intentions out, babes! This new moon is going to be absolutely amazing.
