New Moon in Scorpio- November 18, 2017

New Moon in Scorpio- November 18, 2017
This New Moon arrives on November 18, 2017 in the sign of Scorpio. Scorpio deals with secrets, spirituality, and transformation. This New Moon brings intense energies, and its effects will continue to be felt until the next Full Moon on December 3. Big changes will be happening, if they haven't already, in your environment. As the seasons change, so do we. If we are able to learn from the lessons that these changes will bring about, we will reap great rewards when all is said and done. How will you adapt to new situations? How will you react when faced with important decisions or tense confrontations? My suggestion is to stay calm, as Scorpio's dark side can cause us to lash out or be insulting as an act of self-defense. I consider myself to be more of the blindly-optimistic side, but I feel it is necessary to share the somewhat harsh yet necessary challenges (or opportunities) this New Moon will require us to learn and grow from. 

Certain events may arise that cause us to look back and reflect on a similar time from the past, and decide how we choose to deal with the situation today. This New Moon will be influenced by Jupiter being conjunct with Venus on November 17, which lends us supportive reminders to stay inspired and hopeful no matter the circumstance!  Whatever energies you put out will circle right back to you, so be very conscious about your thoughts and intentions.  As with any New Moon, manifestations will have a powerful outcome so again, be clear and aware in your dealings with others. Any covert operations will be revealed during this time, and some may be shocking or upsetting. Try not to take things too personally, as everyone else will have there own set of obstacles to go through and learn from!

It will be hard to get distracted by others right now, since Scorpio gives us its all-or-nothing attitude when it comes to things we are passionate or even obsessed about. It serves as a great time to research and discover new information or revelations. We may not have the patience to deal with anything superficial or things that lack depth. It's really just as well since we can (and should) use our time wisely and listen to what our intuition is communicating to us. We can learn to harness our personal power and use it by setting a positive intention for this New Moon. Find or create a space where you can reflect on old habits or ways of being, and renew yourself by allowing change to enter your life for the better. Write down your honest, and heartfelt desires for improving your life. Tap into your own spiritual guidance to seek out ways to add purpose and meaning to your life. This Scorpio New Moon will influence your words, thoughts, intentions, and actions greater than usual, so use your personal power with wisdom and compassion and you will be sure to have a successful outcome! I wish you all a positive and hopeful New Moon.
Be well!
