New Moon in Scorpio – Healing


On November 15th, 2020, we have a New Moon in Scorpio.

GOOD NEWS: This is one of the most auspicious New Moons of the year because it makes favorable aspects with Jupiter, Pluto, and Neptune. This New Moon is also a Super Moon and it is at 23° Scorpio.

Unlike the previous New Moon which was very challenging (it was exactly square Saturn) the New Moon in Scorpio doesn’t have any negative aspects. What a relief!

The New Moon in Scorpio is compassionate, supportive, and will give us the chance to regroup and rebound.

To understand how the New Moon influences us, we not only look at the direct aspects the New Moon makes with other planets, but also at the ruler, or rulers of the New Moon. The rulers of the New Moon in Scorpio are Mars, the traditional ruler, and Pluto, the modern ruler.

Mars Goes Direct, Jupiter Is Conjunct Pluto

And it is VERY interesting what each of these two planets does at the time of this new New Moon. Mars turns direct on November 13th, 2 days before the New Moon.

This change in direction is very important. Mars has been retrograde since forever (more exactly, from September 9th, 2020) and when Mars finally goes direct, things WILL get unstuck. Plans WILL change. Outcomes WILL be nothing like what we expected them to be.

The modern ruler of the New Moon, Pluto, is conjunct Jupiter. The Jupiter-Pluto conjunction occurs only once every 13 years, and on November 12th, 2020 we had the final conjunction of the cycle. This is another major milestone.

Mars direct and Jupiter conjunct Pluto are extremely important transits which suggest that the upcoming Lunar Cycle (November 15th – December 13th) is super significant and will bring us events that will influence our lives profoundly.

Let’s remind ourselves that the main purpose of a New Moon is to teach us about one of the 12 signs of the zodiac. This New Moon is in Scorpio, so this is that time of the year when all of us get to experience the energy of Scorpio.

Scorpio – Still Waters

Scorpio is a water fixed sign. Water is fluid by definition – NOT fixed. Water flows, joins other streams, and seeks unity. Scorpio’s still waters are different, however. Since Scorpio is a fixed sign, Scorpio’s waters are lakes, ponds, aquariums and icebergs.

What’s beautiful about lakes and still waters is that they are more at one with their surroundings – they have a lot less change with longer life-cycles, than, for example, a waterfall, or a fast running river.

But still, there’s a lot going on beneath the surface of still waters! Every little thing that is done does not go unnoticed and has consequences. If you’re in a lake, it’s not that you can just “jump ships” and leave everything behind.

You continue living in that enclosed space, which you’ll eventually get to know better and better. Within the frame of the lake, Scorpio’s focus goes deeper, and deeper. With Scorpio, no stone is left unturned. Scorpio gets to the bottom of things.

Scorpio is the opposite of Taurus. If Taurus is what we achieve as the result of our own efforts (that’s why Taurus is connected to money and finances), Scorpio is what we achieve with the help of others.

Taurus is an Earth, practical sign “what you see is what you get”. Scorpio is a water, emotional sign that focuses on what’s not obvious – yet, is vitally important. Scorpio brings clarity and finds hidden connections that no one else can see.

Scorpio doesn’t shy away from problems. Scorpio doesn’t hide things under the carpet. Scorpio confronts them. The result? Unparalleled depth, clarity, strength and resilience.

Together with Pisces, Scorpio is the most healing sign of the zodiac. Scorpio’s waters are clean, healing and nourishing because when we do confront our dark side and make peace with ourselves, the result is deep and profound healing.

At the New Moon in Scorpio, we too, can get a glimpse of this energy.

Here are some keywords for the New Moon in Scorpio:

  • Healing by exposing the truth
  • Reconciliation
  • Empathy and emotional depth
  • Learning to trust and share “what’s mine” with others
  • Clarity and laser-like focus “Now I know what I want”
  • Strength and resilience “What hasn’t killed me had made me stronger”

The New Moon in Scorpio will influence you more strongly if you have planets or angles in Scorpio. Even if you don’t have planets in Scorpio, the New Moon will still influence you because it will transit a particular house of your natal chart.
