New Moon in Scorpio Horoscopes




New Moon in Scorpio Horoscopes

The greatest treasures are buried deepest

Rick Levine

Speaking the truth isn’t always easy, especially if our feelings are in conflict with someone else’s. We’re torn between supporting those we love and maintaining our integrity. Nevertheless, the relentless Scorpio New Moon on November 11, 2015, plants a seed that urges us to express what’s in our hearts at any cost. Fortunately, we can reach deeper into the watery mysteries because curious Mercury is present at the planetary gathering in Scorpio. Delving into our emotions now is like diving into a bottomless well. However, the further down we’re willing to go, the greater the treasures we find.

Although there are challenging issues to tackle, buoyant Jupiter’s supportive sextile to this New Moon puts a positive spin on nearly any conversation started at this time. Don’t withdraw if the going gets tough; when in doubt, discuss what’s on your mind. This intense New Moon brings the potential to transmute fear into love with the same evolutionary power that transforms a caterpillar into a butterfly. Remember, shadows are banished by the light of awareness. As Eleanor Roosevelt said, “It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”

Find out how this New Moon will influence YOU with your sign’s horoscope below.

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

You can’t help but raise issues that everyone else would rather avoid now. You’re not looking to stir up trouble, but talking about a sensitive subject might prompt others to discredit you by criticizing your opinions. Although you don’t want to waste energy defending your philosophy, it may be necessary in order to defuse the negativity before it takes hold. Thankfully, this perceptive Scorpio New Moon falls in your 8th House of Metamorphosis, inspiring you to see the conversation through to a successful conclusion.

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)

Ignoring a friend or lover’s incisive feedback is not a wise tactic while the Scorpio New Moon rattles your 7th House of Significant Others. You might not want to listen to what’s being said, but taking a message to heart can be a significant catalyst for personal growth. There’s no need to nod your head in agreement; however, seriously considering someone’s less-than-pleasant assessment is grist for your mill. No matter how useful the new information is to your transformation, you’ll be a stronger person for going through the process.

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)

Making simple modifications to your daily routine may be the smartest thing you can do, as long as you choose ones that don’t turn your life upside down. Fortunately, a subtle adjustment can set a series of profound consequences into motion when the Scorpio New Moon shakes up your 6th House of Self-Improvement. The potential for change is likely, so pick your direction wisely. Just remember that being too insistent could overwhelm others, causing your plans to backfire. Acting with gentle persistence is much more effective than making one dramatic gesture.

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)

You might believe your world has come to a standstill, but in truth it has not. To the contrary, you’re right on the verge of something big. Perhaps you recently thought about starting a creative project or making a move on the romantic front. In either case, this evocative Scorpio New Moon fires up your 5th House of Self-Expression, intensifying the emotional process. But nothing will happen overnight, so be patient. It’s always darkest just before the dawn.

Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Your feelings could be at odds with your actions. You might choose to withhold your desires and just smile your way through a conflict, but you won’t likely get away with it. Acknowledge your subjectivity while the passionate Scorpio New Moon spotlights your 4th House of Security. Thankfully, you can change the rules of the game; instead of choosing emotions or logic, seek a position that honors both realms. Maintain a close connection with your heart while listening to the advice offered by your rational mind.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

There may not be a better time to take initiative on an important project. Put your plans into action while the Scorpio New Moon energizes your 3rd House of Immediate Environment. Use this creative lunar power to get your ideas out into the open, whether verbally or written. Nevertheless, it might be nearly impossible to follow through on everything you start. Ride the planetary waves of change by relying on your sense of humor to keep everyone laughing, since the current intensity won’t last very long.

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

You’re holding onto a very well-kept secret, and this unexpressed juicy tidbit may have negative consequences. It’s tempting to express all the pleasant parts of your story while hiding the less palatable facts. Thankfully, the potent Scorpio New Moon lands in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem, giving you the power to overcome your fears and then bring them out into the open. Working through your resistance isn’t possible if you keep denying valid concerns; adopt a fierce attitude and face your challenges head-on.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

You can do nearly anything if you put your mind to it and commit to relentlessly executing your plan. It’s as if you are carrying a secret vial of superpowers, but it’s actually the New Moon’s presence in your Fixed sign. You must use this magic potion carefully or you might create more problems than you solve. Your efforts to save the world are admirable, but acknowledging your limits can prevent disappointment tomorrow. Global transformation must start from within.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

You might miss a rare opportunity to connect with someone close to you if you get lost in your desire for professional success, instead. You appear to be emotionally present and act as if you’re living in the moment. But no one really knows what’s going on behind your eyes since the enigmatic Scorpio New Moon occurs in your 12th House of Secrets. Deep soul-searching could reveal that you’re not yet ready to share your vulnerability with anyone else. Trust your intuition to know when the time is right.

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You can engage people with calculated precision, as if you are playing a competitive game of chess. However, your ideas may be more fixed than others realize and you might not want to change your plans while the unrelenting Scorpio New Moon activates your 11th House of Goals. Trust your instincts and you’ll know exactly what move to make next to keep the win within your grasp. Analyze every possible scenario with careful consideration; your single-mindedness could bring you victory sooner than you think.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Long-term career goals take priority while the Scorpio New Moon emphasizes your 10th House of Status. Your uncanny ability to control your emotions creates a magnetism that could have your biggest critics eating from your hand. But this gift is not to be used for the sole purpose of manipulation; instead, utilize your powers of persuasion thoughtfully so others will line up to be on your team. Integrate your altruistic intentions with strategic action for the best results.

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Successful planning for the future requires you to have an accurate map that reveals the exact lay of the land. But sometimes getting your bearings is challenging, especially when the mysterious Scorpio New Moon is stimulating your 9th House of Big Ideas. Thankfully, you should land safely at your destination just in time, as long as you continue to visualize your arrival. Take the extra step and create an itinerary for the coming months so that you can stay on track as you move toward fulfilling your dreams. is a Daily Insight Group Site
