On Nov. 13th at 4:27am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in almost 21 degrees of Scorpio, beginning a new Moon cycle.

Before we get started, I have a quick announcements:

I am excited to say that I will be a regular guest on the Soulivity Today Morning Show: “Hot Topics Friday” starting on Nov. 17th.

==> Join me once a month as I discuss hot astrology topics with the lovely Brian Westley Johnson.

Now, back to the New Moon:

With the New Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, it brings our focus to our intimate relationships and deepest emotional desires and fears; if you’d like to learn more about this Lunation, check out my video on the subject

Eclipse season is over; Saturn has Stationed Direct on Nov. 4th, so we are feeling a bit more grounded and ready to move things forward in a bigger way.

A couple of things to note in this New Moon chart:

Mars, the traditional ruler of Scorpio, aligns with the New Moon, and all three of those planetary bodies make a Trine to Neptune in Pisces, as well as an exact Opposition to Uranus in Taurus — the planet associated with breakdowns, breakthroughs, sudden change, freedom, and innovation.

Pluto, the modern ruler of Scorpio, is still in serious, cautious, and goal-oriented Capricorn until January 20th, 2024, and still squares the Moon Nodes in Aries-Libra until December 8th/9th. Pluto also still trines Uranus in Taurus and still sextiles Neptune in Pisces.

Mercury, the messenger of the heavens, sextiles Venus in Libra and squares an exalted Saturn in Pisces at the time of the New Moon. More about all that in a moment, but first, let’s talk about the Scorpio energies…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 18-23 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo or Aquarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

So this month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be any time between 4:27am and 6:03pm on Nov. 13th; then again from 9:23pm (Nov. 13th) until 4:27am on Nov. 15th — New York Time/US Eastern Time.

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), feel free to join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter. I will be posting reminders on Nov. 13th, 14th and 15th, to let you know when it is the most potent time to set your intentions.

Again, we will cover the last Mercury Retrograde phase of the year (Dec. 13th – January 1st, 2024) in our last Forecasting Forum of the year, on Dec. 1st at 5pm EST/2pm PST/10pm London time — for more info, click here.  (Also available for purchase as an mp4-video presentation after Dec. 1st on my webinar page.)

Again, please note that registration to the Forum also includes access to the next Members Full Moon video and a recording of the live event!

AND there is an Early Bird Special that will be available until Nov. 29th at midnight EST!
