New Moon In Scorpio...November 13, 2012...

("Scorpio", Artist: chib ~ Aleks Shcherbakov)
Tuesday, November 13th, at 6:08 PM/EST, is the New Moon in Scorpio. As an added bonus, this one coincides with a Solar Eclipse (which only happens during New Moons). Eclipses intensify energies, personal thought, and powers of reflection. Scorpio is a water sign, and is fixed energy, so its qualities will shine: resourcefulness, ambition, determination, loyalty. It symbolizes strength in conscious emotional expression, rather than the weakness many people expect in emotionally expressive beings. Fight off urge to over think, or over analyze, and allow yourself to feel. Don’t be afraid to hand over the reins to someone else in a situation, and trust. It can be incredibly empowering. Themes of the 8th House will also come to the fore, so be prepared for some lessons related to personal and financial issues. This is a particularly good time to take a close look at your finances, and doubly so if you share yours with another person. Really examine what is being paid out, and by whom. New Moons always signal a time for new beginnings, but with the added punch of the Solar Eclipse there is plenty of punched up energy to get a fresh start. On the flip-side of that, be ready in case newly started projects don’t go off as planned. The Eclipse could cause things to travel a side path instead of the direct one you are focusing on.

Scorpio loves all the facts, and will dredge up whatever details it can, even if they are hard to swallow. A square between Sagittarian Retrograde-Mercury, and direct Piscean Neptune, will cause things to rise to the surface. Neptune may act as a shield to a certain extent, but regardless, deeply held secrets and/or deep-seated lies could be revealed warts and all. You may not have intended to mislead, but you could be in for a rude awakening…so buckle up. (A general rule of thumb that would be good to make a general practice of in life, is to make sure the information you have been given is legit. Make sure you are dealing with a reliable source if you are sensing a question mark.)

Saturn in Scorpio, is inconjunct Uranus in Aries, with both planets in aspect to Pluto in Capricorn: Pluto is square Uranus, and Sextile Saturn. The Saturn-Pluto aspect overshadows Uranus, causing ‘him’ to hit the brakes a little and at least show some willingness to shift some focus towards reality. What may seem like an off the wall plan will soon show itself to be productive after all.

Capricorn’s ruling planet is Saturn, and Scorpio’s ruling planet is Pluto. Pluto and Saturn are sextile within orb, which will cause a “mutual reception”. As the Solar Eclipse concludes, you could see some positive influence here.

A Grand Trine is formed with Saturn in Scorpio, Ceres in Cancer, and Chiron in Pisces. Be cautious when dealing with females/feminine issues. Any perceived disrespect will not bode well for you. Arian Uranus is square Ceres. Be careful of what you say, overall. Don’t let yourself get baited into making some harsh comments. It won’t go well for you. Err on the side of caution.

The New Moon in Scorpio, is semi-sextile Venus in Libra. There is indication of embarrassing tidbits of information getting aired. It’s all stuff that was going to eventually come out. Brace yourself, but be assured…things will come out in a way that will yield the least amount of damage to all parties.

A semi-sextile between Mercury and Mars, both in Sagittarius by the numbers, will keep things interesting. There is great potential for shifts between cohesion and the unbalanced, and back again. Mars, and Neptune in Pisces, are in an out of sign sextile. These energies will boost the creative side. The aforementioned times of unbalance could spawn some new ideas, with the harmonious periods spurring things on.

The best advice for this lunar cycle is to respect, be kind, and focus on the glass being half full. Drop any and all facades, and show the real you in all of your dealings. If you put the negative out there, it will come back to you and then some. The effects sent out by the Solar Eclipse will be around for the next 12 months or so. Putting out the positive instead of the negative is very important now, as events and issues presented now will cause potential ripples that will affect things to come. Grab this opportunity for a positive and powerful start to new projects, and some much needed personal renewals.
