The New Moon in Scorpio Is Asking You to Dig Deeper and Turn Inwards to Work on Yourself
The Scorpio new moon is the penultimate new moon of the calendar year. Now is the time to put in the work to finish off this challenging year with a (fingers crossed) bang. While we were all hampered by lockdowns and restrictions over the last year, this new moon marks the perfect time to throw off this old energy and gear up for a better 2022.
Taking place on November 5 at 8:14am AEDT, this is the beginning of another new cycle. Take this opportunity to look back at personal goals you set earlier in the year and see where you landed with them. How much did you achieve? What else would you like to work towards over the next 12 months?
As far as the zodiac sign goes, Scorpios are passionate and determined people who are extremely resourceful. If you’re feeling an abundance of this energy over the coming weeks, go with it and turn inwards to work on yourself and tick those niggling tasks off of your to-do list.
“This New Moon cycle is also opportune for exploring what is missing in our lives that leads us to engage in these self-destructive behaviours,” said Cafe Astrology. “This cycle represents an opportunity to rid ourselves of ‘junk’ in our lives–material and spiritual. With this potent Scorpio energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives.”
This could include freeing yourself of metaphorical weight you’ve been carrying around in the form of friendships that are no longer serving you, or emotional burdens. Pinpointing these things will help you identify how to make changes to ensure you’re not taking any of this into the next calendar year.
Author and podcast host Jordanna Levin summed this new moon perfectly in an Instagram post, writing: “Scorpio New Moons are all about what happens in the shadows. So while sitting in the darkness with nothing but your emotions what is being brought to light? This is where the truth lies… Everything you ignore, suppress, or make an excuse for hasn’t disappeared; it just sits there lurking in the shadows waiting for another opportunity to present itself. The truth will not stay hidden. Celebrate this.”
