New Moon in Scorpio, November 2023:
Unstoppable vs. Immovable
The November New Moon in Scorpio occurs at 20º Scorpio on November 13 , 1:26 AM Pacific time. This New Moon bears similarity to the energy of a Full Moon, because it features a strong opposition between a stellium in Scorpio and Uranus in Scorpio.
New Moon in Scorpio: Deeply Determined Drive
Mars and Ceres are also conjunct the Sun and Moon in Scorpio. The combination of Mars and Ceres in this Fixed water sign conveys a pure kind of focus and determination. Consequently, we may find ourselves deeply energized from an emotional place. By denying ourselves of extraneous pleasures and needs, we are able to maintain a laser-like focus.
Thus, our powers of concentration will be at their peak during the November New Moon. We find that we possess the resourcefulness to achieve great things. We can effectively channel this energy by getting into our physical bodies, finding appropriate exercise, and eating a balanced diet. However, we must watch out for burnout, pushing ourselves too hard and extreme, self-denying behavior.
New Moon in Scorpio: Achieving Our Dreams By Any Means Possible
The Moon trines Neptune in Pisces. Neptune’s involvement provides harmonious energy towards visualization and imagination, allowing us to effortlessly achieve our dreams. However, the opposition to Uranus in Taurus shows that there may be some disruption in our relationships. We may find that our drive, or that of others, may easily veer into ruthless or dominating behavior. Also, we may find that the more we attempt to drive others to help us achieve our goals, the more others rebel by stubbornly refusing to comply.
During the November New Moon, we may find ourselves locked in a battle between confronting the truth and the desire to maintain the status quo. Depending on our individual charts, we can find ourselves identifying with either one of these poles of expression.
Planting Seeds for Sustainable, Ethical Goals
New Moons are moments of new beginnings and incubating new ideas. During the November New Moon in Scorpio, we can make our seedling dreams more sustainable. Furthermore, we can examine where we resource our projects and our lives, and better align our desires with the needs of other people.
We can ask ourselves: What is the line between resourcefulness and using? How can we give back by involving ourselves in the projects of others? What can do to transform the habits that are holding us back, while also maintaining stability? How can we maintain independence while also allowing ourselves to be interdependent and share resources with others?

Moon and Ceres in Scorpio: Difficulty with Nurturing
The Moon, in Scorpio, is in its sign of fall. The Moon in Scorpio can experience an emotional life that’s so intense, it’s overwhelming. Contrasted with the steadiness and simplicity of the Moon in Taurus (the sign of its exaltation) the Moon in Scorpio tends towards extremes and complexity. The Moon in Scorpio holds on to toxic emotion, as well as ideas of the past and of the future. On the other hand, the Moon in Taurus has the ability to stay grounded during emotional experiences.
Additionally, Ceres is in its sign of detriment. Ceres in Scorpio can be dissociated and deny the needs of the body. Also, she anticipates loss and clings to extremes of expression, operating in bursts of passion and grit. This contrasts with how Ceres expresses in Taurus, where she is at home. Ceres in Taurus is grounded, comfortable in her body, and possesses a natural expectation of abundance. She has no trouble receiving and giving nurturing in an easygoing, earthy, physical way, and is naturally attuned to the needs of her body. So Ceres during this Moon is “out of her element” and not the stabilizing influence she likes to be.
