The November New Moon in Scorpio Will Affect These 4 Zodiac Signs the Most

The lunar cycle is full of ups and downs, but every part of the process is important. And if you’re one of the zodiac signs affected by the new moon, you know that beginnings can feel just as intimidating as endings often feel bittersweet. If you’re currently staring at a long road ahead, know that it always seems impossible to reach the finish line when you haven’t even taken your first step.

The most climactic moments of the lunar cycle to happen at two different moments: the new moon and the full moon. While the latter is intense and dramatic, the former is a more subtle experience, but that doesn’t make it any less powerful. In fact, the new moon is what launches the whole experience, as it represents the beginning of a new chapter. The themes and situations that tend to pop up during a new moon are often incredibly meaningful, revealing opportunities ripe for the taking. And if you make a point to start a project or commit to a new relationship during a new moon, it will have that much more potential to succeed. However, even if you do nothing to honor the new moon, it will still mark the beginning of a journey that has yet to reveal itself.

Taking place on November 13 at 4:27 a.m. ET, the upcoming new moon takes place in intimate, intense, strategic, and shadowy Scorpio, zoning in the way we give and exchange energy. New moons are often a time where fresh seeds are planted, and because this new moon is sitting in close proximity to Mars—Scorpio’s feisty and primal ruling planet—this new moon is arguably just as intense and dramatic as a full moon. And although new moons signify a new beginning, let’s not forget that new beginnings are often dependent on something else ending.

This new moon could awaken your senses and take you down a completely unpredictable path. Not only will Mars be adding fuel to the far, but the moon will also be opposing Uranus, planet of sudden and erratic changes. This energy is a pressure-cooker of pent-up aggression, so remain aware of your triggers and how to avoid making an uncomfortable situation even worse. However, if the going gets tough, keep in mind that sometimes things need to get much more difficult before they start getting so much better. Scorpio understands that nothing can be created or destroyed, but simply transmuted into something else.
