New Moon in Scorpio 2023

On November 13th at 1:27 AM PST the Sun and Moon conjoin at 20 degrees Scorpio 44 minutes, giving us a New Moon. An opportunity is upon us; a time to set goals and hopes for the future. With the Sun and Moon sharing the 20th degree of Scorpio, we can observe in “The Sabian Symbols” the message; “A woman draws away two dark curtains closing the entrance to a sacred pathway.” Time to look into the deeper mysteries of life, into the rabbit hole of what we haven’t observed yet.

Scorpio is a Fixed Water Sign. This sign is driven to take us under the surface of life, to fearlessly observe what we normally look away from. Being a fixed sign there is a determination and persistence to find what is being sought. And due to the nature of a water sign, we are in the emotional realm. This sign dares us to look at the truth and to do something about it.

So what kind of goal would satisfy this energy? Well, what are you afraid of? I’d begin there. What comes to mind is how some deal with their spirituality. They surround themselves with crystals, relics and images of Angels and refuse to step out into the realm of evil and what they fear. Scorpio tells us there’s more to know here. And because knowledge is power, we can step out of our comfort zone and learn about things we may not want to see. Anything we avoid to learn about can have power over us, keeping us afraid to move forward.

Scorpio rules the 8th house, the house that deals with transformation and death; and what comes next, inheritance. This can be legacies and talents passed down. It also rules shared finances and values. Setting up plans for what is to come in the future, such as investments and important business dealings is a powerful move now.

This sign also relates to sex and intimacy. Many of us have fears here, and we can look down that rabbit hole for answers to the puzzle of why. Scorpio is the sign of psychology and as mentioned, going deep inside for answers. Whether or not you work with a therapist or hypnotherapist, you will have access greater than before to find these answers. I suggest if you are working on this alone, to seek clarity through the Journeys presented on my YouTube or Patreon site, Skypatterns, to find these answers.

At the time of this New Moon, other planets are collaborating with the Sun and Moon; one being Mars at 22 degrees Scorpio. In this sign Mars is extremely passionate and capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, with a one track mind. Together with these luminaries they oppose Uranus at 21 degrees Taurus. Here we are again looking at what the Eclipse cycle was meaning to teach us; what do we truly value? Intensely restless and dynamic under this influence, when you want something, you want it NOW, and you may act decisively, impulsively, sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, you may find it difficult to slow down, pace yourself, or relax. You may have an explosive temper when your will is blocked. You have a superabundance of energy and need much personal freedom to do things in your own style and at your own pace. How to best use this energy would be to act on what is provoking you to anger. Uranus presents sudden changes, possibly in finances or values, that change us. Be unafraid to seek the answers here to bring you more freedom. The Moon asks us to seek emotional freedom, especially if your domestic life is very unstable.

But the gift here is that the Sun, Moon and Mars are all trine Neptune. The Sun inspires your spiritual values to color your whole perspective and approach to life. The Moon makes us very sensitive and where we cannot stand to be in an atmosphere where there is discord or dissonance. Gentle, kind hearted, and peace-loving, you will give or sacrifice much in order to avoid a fight and to "make everyone happy". Mars brings an awareness to dream up creative solutions to problems and take an imaginative, unusual approach to getting a job done. When difficulties arise you prefer to avoid conflict and confrontation in favor of more peaceful or subtle methods of resolving problems.

So on this occasion, go deep. When we eliminate fears through knowledge, and seek answers for our own problems, we can move forward more easily and make our mark on the world. We are all valuable in the awakening process, able to share our stories with others who need help finding answers. Join in on uplifting the awareness of humanity, beginning with YOU.

Always so blessed to have the expertise of Judy Crescenzo!!! For a private reading please email:
