Scorpio is an interesting sign….. and a loaded one. First, it governs sex, intimacy and forming a deeper bond with a lover. It also has a powerful effect on our ability to make smart investments and create a strong financial foundation for the future. Not only that, it deals with the occult – – shamanism, psychics and mystery. So anytime there’s a new moon here, get ready because interesting things are about to happen.
The annual new moon in Scorpio occurs on Sunday, November 15th. It’s kind of a big deal this year, because recently there has been some highly unusual cosmic activity going on.
Just a few days ago on Thursday the 12th, Pluto and Jupiter met up in Capricorn, which is a rare event that usually happens once every couple of hundred years. What’s odd is that these two powerful orbs met up twice earlier in 2020, and their third meeting occurred last week. It’s the final of three meetings, and each one was designed to help you make decisions, because that’s what Capricorn is all about.
In addition, Mars–the planet of motivation–was cruising backward in Aries, the sign of self-will and courage. Mars went direct on Friday the 13th. The bottom line is that the planets are lining up beautifully to get everyone ready for some fresh new changes. And God knows we need them, after the kind of year 2020 has been.
There is a very individualistic energy going on right now. Partnering with other people or giving in to their agendas simply is not going to be appetizing. It’s not that the cosmos is recommending selfishness; rather, the heavens want us to protect our turf and our dreams in a very healthy way. Which leads me to the new moon in Scorpio!
This lunation is designed to open up doors in love, career and finances. Pluto, the planet of transformation, is in an excellent angle to the new Moon. So is abundant Jupiter, the planet of optimism that wants to dump goodies in our laps.
However, Venus is in a cranky place from the partnership zone, indicating that what you have planned may be in conflict with what others want. This could be a lover, boss, or business partner. Maybe you have retained a literary agent or a business manager who thinks that you should go down a particular path, and it’s not sitting the right way with you. Pay attention to your gut feelings, because they are valid.
On the plus side, if you are getting along well with a spouse, lover or business connection, the two of you can make fabulous progress over the next six months! Your love life can get quite intense, with emotional bonding being just as important as the sexual kind.
So all is fair right now—taking care of your own needs is perfectly OK, with no need to be ruthless.
Business matters will really take off after Saturday, November 21st, because two major aspects occur that day: profitable Venus glides into Scorpio (ka-ching, ka-ching!) and the mighty Sun enters entrepreneurial Sagittarius.
Next week, November 22nd through the 28th, is the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. Business tends to come to a halt once Tuesday afternoon rolls around and it doesn’t pick up again until the following Monday.
But this year is going to be different, as many people won’t be traveling home for the holidays due to Covid. In addition, the cosmos has some terrific kick-ass aspects going on the entire week, especially when it comes to career matters.
So if you’re looking for work… or a raise… or maybe you want to start a side hustle… next week is amazing for getting things off the ground. A lunar eclipse is going to take place on Tuesday the 30th in Gemini, which is the sign of going loud and proud: sending out resumes, crushing it on social media, defending your thesis, handing in the mother of all term papers, wrapping up a product launch or putting the finishing touches on a portfolio of work.
A lot of people need money right now, and they need it quickly. The two weeks between the Scorpio new moon on the 15th and the full moon in Gemini on the 30th are awesome for developing momentum, so don’t get sucked into the usual Thanksgiving week doldrums: eating a ton of tryptophan-laden turkey that makes you want to sleep, drinking alcohol that makes you want to sleep, or watching endless football games and Twilight Zone marathons on TV. Not to mention arguing with your family and getting caught up in discussions about the election!
