The New Moon in Scorpio occurs Sunday, November 3, at 7:50 am EST (12:50 pm GMT), at 11 degrees. New moons signify a new cycle, new beginnings, and rebirth.
This New Moon, along with the Sun (also in Scorpio) will highlight the watery Scorpio qualities of determination and focus, as well as eighth house themes of transformation. This New Moon period is the perfect time to examine your self and your personal goals, no matter to what they might be related. Perhaps you need to strive more within your workplace. Or perhaps you need to focus on your personal health, transforming yourself into a stronger, more physically fit version of yourself. Now is the time to initiate changes, focusing on achieving your goals and becoming the best version of yourself you wish to be.
November 3 also brings us a solar eclipse, at 7:46 am EST (12:46 pm GMT). Eclipses are times of heightened energy. Expect surprises, especially as they relate to money. Lucky viewers on the east coast of the U.S. have the best chances for viewing the solar eclipse around 6:30 am. This is the last solar eclipse of 2013, and is a rare “hybrid” eclipse, meaning that it is a combination of two types of solar eclipse: it will begin as an annular solar eclipse (known for its familiar “ring of fire”) before becoming a total solar eclipse (in which the sun is completely blocked by the moon).
Keep in mind also that Mercury is currently retrograde in Scorpio (stationing direct on November 10. You may find yourself needing to be extra careful with finances, travel plans, and digital communications, but retrograde periods are also great periods for rebirth and reflection, which only adds to the restorative power of the Scorpio New Moon.
