This year has had some hairy lunations. The New and Full Moons of 2020 have reflected the state the world is in, and hopefully this coming New Moon in Scorpio has the energy to fuel transformation.
However, just as easily, it may fuel destruction, too.
On 15 November, 2020, we can begin to brace ourselves for a period of intense change over the next six months.

About the Scorpio New Moon
The Moon is in its sign of “fall” in Scorpio – so although the Moon loves being in water, this can reflect a time where we may get rather caught up in the “dark side of the Moon” – that is to say, obsession and drama.
Instead, we should look to the positives of Scorpio, which is transformation, empowerment, change and taking control of our lives in positive and inspiring ways.
Keywords for this New Moon are: power, intimacy, change, transformation, destruction, intensity, drama, toxicity, purging, communicating, relationships and obsession.
Energies affecting this New Moon
The energies around this New Moon are admittedly quite dark and can pull us below the surface.
However, all difficult astrological configurations are simply an invitation from the cosmos to change things, to use the power of alchemy – that is to say, making new choices when faced with old patterns and complexes.
True alchemy lies in not changing the world, but ourselves, first.
This New Moon in Scorpio may bring up some wounds around power and trauma, but also says that over the next few months, we can turn it around, once we face and deal with our shadow.
The ruler of this Full Moon in a strong Mars in Aries – the Warrior – and now that he is out of Retrograde, he can do good things.
He can remind us of our courage, our motivations, our desires and push us to go after them with all our might.
However, Pluto is still in the mix as the second ruler of Scorpio, and he’s not doing too well.
He’s in a square with lady Venus, who also has a square to stern Saturn.
This may come up as intimacy issues, money issues or power dynamic issues in our relationships over the next few months, and we are challenged not to lose ourselves in gloom.
Instead, we can recognise where our own values lie, and where we need to own up and get sober.
With Mercury in a tight opposition to Uranus, we might find ourselves saying all kinds of shocking things, and worldwide, there may be unexpected turns of events we never anticipated or planned.

5 Tips for making the most of the New Moon in Scorpio
1. Purge Any Toxicity From Your Life
Scorpio is always a sign that highlights anything toxic in our lives – from our own behaviour to the external.
This is the perfect opportunity to purge, purge, purge and start again!
2. Avoid Drama
With the Moon and Sun in intense, watery and sensitive Scorpio, we may be inclined to dramatic new beginnings.
Dramatic is fine, as long as it isn’t toxic (see above!)
3. Get Ready For Crisis and Transformation
The Scorpio signature is crisis and transformation, so get ready!
This is a time where we need it, more than ever – personally and collectively.
4. Work On Your Relationships
Scorpios the sign of intimacy, and with Venus squaring both Pluto and Saturn, we may be dealing with team issues or power struggles – some of us may even have a relationship ending. But only if it’s meant to.
5. Communicate, communicate, communicate
With Mercury and Uranus opposing each other, it’s important to keep commutating clearly, openly and being understanding that plans and ideas will change – quickly.

Summary of the New Moon in Scorpio
This New Moon in Scorpio can bring about a sense of crisis, endings and transformation.
Although it’s a New Moon, igniting the start of something, Scorpio is a sign that closes down, first.
So get prepared for a death/rebirth situation, somewhere in your life.
Try not to let yourself get caught in drama or power struggles and stay on the bright side – it’s not as dark as it seems, and the next several months can show the results of the hard work you put in right now.
