New Moon in Scorpio- November 13, 2023
The New Moon in Scorpio is the ideal time to work on intention setting, especially to do with important changes you would like to make within your life. Scorpio energy is home to the 8th house of the zodiac, which is all about changes and transformations. The 8th house also carries themes of unconventional and taboo topics, which makes it a great time to practice shadow work. Here are some ways you can practice:
- Notice when you judge, criticize, or blame and pause, then ask yourself: What in yourself are you avoiding by focusing externally?
- When you feel jealousy, anger, or self-pity, pause, and ask, “what core belief is underneath this feeling?”
- Practice seeing yourself in other people.
- Practice radical responsibility for your emotions and reactions rather than blaming others.
- Be honest about your shadow thoughts and fears, then remind yourself what is true.
Let’s take a more in depth look at the overall energies, attributes, and themes you can expect for the New Moon in Scorpio, along with the major planetary aspects that the Moon will be making this day:
Moon in Scorpio
You currently will have a deep and complex emotional life, with a high tendency to feel things intensely. You may be secretive with certain plans you have right now and might not want everyone to know. Feelings may overwhelm you right now. If you are hurt or slighted right now, you may be unforgiving and bear grudges. You might also rather hold your feelings in right now. You will feel prepared to fight for what you believe in.
The Moon will be sextile with Pluto
This aspect will influence you to feel deeply intense right now, and your feelings may be complicated. However, you will have acute instincts and will be able to easily sense emerging difficulties in associations and deal with them before they become unmanageable. You can become obsessed with particular objectives and will concentrate your emotional energy into attaining their realization.
The Moon will form a Square with Saturn
You may not find it easy to express your feelings to others right now, even those who have your trust. You may also feel overwhelmed and exhausted by family responsibilities, and it is possible that your relationship with a parent is distant or emotionally unfulfilling. You may experience some difficulties with the female-sex. You may also be prone to recycling feelings of anxiety and worry.
Neptune will form a Trine with the Moon
The energy from this aspect will make you highly perceptive and sensitive to influences around you, and you will be able to pick up on the feelings of others and the mood of the environment. Your empathetic manner attracts others to you now, and you know how to comfort and heal those in need. You tend to have an idealistic outlook on life currently and will feel quite dreamy.

Strained family dynamics and changeable relationships with women are now possible.
The Moon will form a Conjunction with the Sun

The energy from this aspect gives you the capacity for leadership, and you will feel motivated to take charge of certain situations.
