As we step into the penultimate month of the year, the ethereal, magical energy of the fixed water sign will reach a fever pitch. Calling on you to get in touch with the shadow side of life in order to acknowledge and celebrate your inner truth, the Scorpio new moon occurs on November 4 at 5:14 p.m. ET/2:14 p.m. PT. Though the enchanting whimsy of Halloween will be in the rearview, this lunar event will present even more sweet and stunning surprises. Your November Horoscope Is Here The new moon in Scorpio presents a special opportunity to tune into your intuition. New moons — which happen when the confident sun pairs up with the security-seeking moon — generally offer the chance to gain clarity around a new chapter you want to write over the course of the next two weeks (up until the next full moon) and next six months (when the corresponding full moon occurs). With this month's new moon falling in magnetic, deeply emotional, spiritually-gifted Scorpio, you'll feel even more connected to your intuition and potentially willing to go swimming in powerful, complex feelings. Everything to Know About the Magnetic Water Sign, Scorpio The proximity to an eclipse and an opposition to Uranus spur major change. This particular new moon could feel even more intense and game-changing, as it's falling within the same month and just two weeks ahead of a lunar eclipse in its opposite sign. Eclipses bring major shakeups and sudden shifts, and this new moon serves as a preview of that energy. The main aspect it makes is an opposition to Uranus, the planet of change and rebellion, in Taurus, which can stir up anxiety and a desire to break free of anything that's no longer serving you. Expect the unexpected and a nudge to move in a whole new direction, particularly when it comes to moneymaking, joint resources, and intimacy, as those are the areas of life that Taurus and Scorpio rule. And although change is often daunting, any uneasiness or nervousness that you're experiencing around this new moon should feel fairly familiar. After all, 2021 has been marked by an ongoing, shakeup-bringing square between Saturn, the planet of limitations and boundaries, and Uranus, so it actually makes perfect sense that so many lunar events — in fact, the last three new moons in October, September, and August — have served to underline that theme. By now, you could be sick of being told to prepare for destabilization, but you should also be fairly limber whenever it happens. Mercury and Venus smooth the rough edges of this electrifying moon. Although the Scorpio new moon's opposition to Uranus could bring shocks to the system — for better or worse — a sweet, friendly sextile between messenger Mercury in balance-seeking air sign Libra and relationship-oriented Venus in fiery truth-loving Sagittarius also occurs on the day of the new moon, which can make any eyebrow-raising curveballs easier to deal with. Connecting with your nearest and dearest comes more naturally, and heartfelt, direct, unfiltered conversations could have you feeling supported as you navigate any wild twists and turns that arise now. Here, how this Scorpio new moon will affect you, based on your sign. (Pro-tip: Be sure to read both your sun and your rising sign, if you know it. If you don't, you can find it on your natal chart or via this CafeAstrology calculator.)
