In general, the Moon in Scorpio is not considered the best placement as the Moon is considered to be in Fall in Scorpio, so it isn’t considered to be as influential. Though a New Moon in Scorpio signifies less emotional volatility than a Full Moon in Scorpio would, a New Moon in Scorpio can still indicate an increased emphasis on our emotional side, especially our hidden, deep rooted feelings that can lead to our behaviors.
The Moon in Scorpio can bring forward deep rooted feelings like jealousy, anger, and possessiveness so do be attentive to how these types of feelings are manifesting in your life and what they are associated with for you personally. Admitting you may have negative feelings is the first step to dealing with them so you can work through them, learn what they have to teach you, and then transcend them.
This New Moon in Scorpio along with Mercury in Scorpio now, reminds us to bring more awareness of how our thoughts and feelings are influencing the reality we create. Thoughts and feelings are the root of our actions and reactions.
Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto.
With Mars (co-ruler of Scorpio) now Direct in Aries since November 13, 2020 this New Moon in Scorpio indicates you are likely to be more interested in taking action to get going in a new direction. Mars direct can also bring out a competitive edge and a desire to win making people a bit more aggressive and assertive.
Mars has been in Aries since June 27, 2020. As we’ve seen with Mars Retrograde in Aries many people have been feeling highly defensive of their identities leading to strong reactions and behavior. Identity politics has certainly be emphasized with Mars in Aries, especially in difficult position with Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn there has been strong tension between authority figures and individuals. Mars will be in Aries until January 6, 2021 and between now and then, more people will realize that a need for practicing emotional-intelligence is necessary during this period to quell aggressive behavior.
This New Moon in Scorpio is in positive aspect to Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn indicating that what is revealed and occurring in the middle of this month especially in terms of business and politics, will influence our new directions heading forward. Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio indicating great emphasis on power moves, especially those going on behind the scenes. Perhaps it’s time for a great purge of corruption.
As Scorpio is a cryptic sign, and Mercury likes to talk, do expect that more information and attention on what goes on behind the scenes will come up. We can expect conspiratorial topics to develop during this period, and of course some could be true even with so many details unknown.
The New Moon in Scorpio indicates an emphasis on finding out the hidden truth. Less of us will be willing to put up with contradictions, corruption and hidden information, particularly in politics, business and financial concerns.
Behind the scenes behavior and actions can become much more obvious over the coming weeks, and can reveal what people are really like. As your inner sleuth wakes up, it becomes much easier to see the hidden motivations of others now.
As Scorpio is about what is hidden, contemplation on the symbolism of masks and how they are a part of our reality now, could bring out interesting insights.
Overall, the New Moon in Scorpio is a time to purge out negativity from your life so you can begin fresh and new.
Scorpio is associated with rebirth, regeneration and transformation. You can think of a New Moon in Scorpio as shedding old skin and starting fresh. The snake is one of the associated symbols of Scorpio, along with the eagle and scorpion of course.
As death is also associated with Scorpio, some could find this a suitable time to finally get to drawing up a will, also quite fitting while Mercury is Direct in Scorpio now as well. Money matters of all types like debt, loans, taxes, wills and estates are worth more attention now. Learning more about cryptocurrencies and changes in the economy is also suggested.
