11/6/2010 The New Moon in Scorpio occurs at 12:52 am ET at 13°40”. All new moons represent new beginnings. All new moons benefit from purging and planning before engaging in the seed planting.

But the Scorpio New Moon opens into deeper layers, arguably unfathomable. It offers the opportunity to explore parts of yourself with greater depth as well as release ties that may hold you back.


The Sabian symbol for this Scorpio degree is “Telephone linemen at work”. I think this emphasizes a need to analyze any communications that may come your way, especially if one unseats you. There’s no doubt, there’s a great deal of buzz out there, but a true revelation is a treasure.

Remember that to share your soul and listen to another requires concentration and a willingness to take risks. What is the correct electrical connection that ignites the conversation? Rote small-talk does not reveal new insight.

If you have a goal concerning investments, legacy, therapy or intimacy, this is the day to ritualize and focus. It is not advisable to initiate any business or financial speculation at this time, because both Venus (money) and Jupiter (luck/fortune) are retrograde.

But if you’re already involved with something this can be the time to make some surgical decisions on what to discard and re-evaluate what no longer works, If you can do this and allow yourself whatever release you need to make it happen, you will truly start with a renewed outlook.

Also today, you may have some difficulty sending or receiving a message, but persistence brings revelations. Pay attention to who you meet, what the topics are and listen more than you speak.

The moon is VOC* from 11:44 pm to 2:21 am ET.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course: Avoid signing contracts, investing in a big purchase or beginning new projects or important conversations. Perfect time for clearing away clutter, finishing up loose ends, meditating or following serendipity. The “mood” of the period will be colored by the sign it is in… in Scorpio, you may find a lost object when you clean or if you’re trying to finish something up you may have trouble ending it…. might be better to curl up with a mystery, if possible.
