New Moon in Scorpio - November 2023

Your guide to the moon cycle ahead.

New Moon in Scorpio

Scorpio, the eighth sign of the zodiac, is known for its intense and transformative nature. It's a water sign, which means it's deeply emotional, intuitive, and sensitive. When the New Moon occurs in Scorpio, these energies are amplified, inviting us to delve into the depths of our emotions and desires.

This New Moon is the perfect time to shed the old and embrace the new. Reflect on the aspects of your life that need a fresh start or a radical transformation. What old habits, thought patterns, or relationships do you need to release to make space for personal growth and evolution?

Pay attention to your gut feelings and dreams. They may hold valuable insights that can guide your path toward positive change. Meditate, journal, or simply spend some quiet time in contemplation to connect with your inner self.

During this New Moon we will also have heavy influence from Mars and Uranus. this can suggest that there may be some unexpected or surprising events, changes or breakthroughs that take this lunar cycle in a direction you hadn't planned for.

Be mindful to sit with any surprises that do occur as the Mars energy can make you quick to overreact!

Remember to check your chart to see which area of life this might show up for you in.

Yoga Pose Focus for this New Moon

Scorpio rules the reproductive and elimination systems as well as being the champion for transformation so we want our physical practice to find openness in the hips and teach us to be able to sit through discomforts.

One of my favourite poses for Scorpio Season is Frog Pose or Mandukasana, which is a powerful yoga pose that brings a deep stretch to the hips, groin, and inner thigh. It resembles a frog preparing to leap, guiding us to step forward into the unknown and allow for the transformation to begin.

Rituals for the New Moon

For each New Moon I build an altar to honour the new beginning, a space where I can sit and be with my goals and dreams for the month ahead and get clarity on my intentions moving forward.

I also really love to use scent in all my rituals and this month I'll be using the sweet and fruity Scorpio Wax Melts on my altar as I relax into my space.

Scorpio is all about desire and transformation so you may like to add something to your altar that represents the transformation you would like to see.

Lastly, Scorpio is a Water sign and water needs to connect with the emotions, this might be a month where you take some time out to rest and reconnect with you.

Crystal for the New Moon in Scorpio

I've chosen Black Obsidian for this New Moon for it's protective energy, shielding you from negative energies and helping you navigate the intense emotional depths of Scorpio.

Like Scorpio's energy, Obsidian is connected to transformation and change. It encourages self-reflection, helping you confront your fears and make positive, life-altering shifts. Obsidian can aid in releasing emotions, promoting emotional healing, and assisting you in letting go of what no longer serves you.

Journal Prompts for the Scorpio New Moon

Your journaling prompts for this New Moon are all around releasing what no longer serves you and connecting with your deepest desires.

1. "What am I ready to release and let go of in my life? What no longer serves my growth, and how can I release it with intention and grace?"

2. "What hidden emotions or desires have I been keeping beneath the surface? How can I harness the energy of the Scorpio New Moon to bring them to light and work with them for personal growth?"

3. "What intentions do I want to set for my personal transformation and growth during this lunar cycle?"

Oracle Card Message for this New Moon

Gibbous Moon

New Moon in Libra Oracle Card

Card Description - The word gibbous means 'bulging'. What a descriptive word, right? And pulling this card at any time of the month suggests that the situation you're asking about is bulging and coming to a peak. But this isn't and 'ending' card with a neat 'yes' or 'no' answer. Rather, you're being reminded that some adjustments may yet be required before you get what you want, though you're certainly on the right track, which is hopefully reassuring for you. However, there is also a sense that the situation is a bit tense, so don't push too hard - one false move and the whole thing could blow! That's not meant to scare you; it's just to let you know there's a fuse attached to this situation, so be careful if you choose to light it.

I hope that you have a wonderful and magical Scorpio New Moon!

Until the Full Moon
