We are not trapped or locked up in these bones. No, no. We are free to change. And love changes us. And if we can love one another, we can break open the sky.

Transformational Fire

This lunation perfects at 1:27 AM PST, 2:27 AM MST, 4:27 AM EST and 5:27 AM AST and takes place at 20 degrees 43 minutes of Scorpio.

As the New Moon cloaks the sky in its monthly shroud of darkness, we’re ushered into a realm of deep introspection and transformation. This isn’t your ordinary lunar reset—this New Moon in Scorpio, conjunct Mars, is a powerful catalyst for change, opposing the unpredictable Uranus in Taurus. It’s a cosmic alignment that promises to stir the pot, challenging us to dive into the depths of our being and emerge renewed.

Scorpio invites us to delve into our innermost waters, to explore the undercurrents of our psyche and the secrets we guard. This New Moon, occurring in the heart of Scorpio’s domain, amplifies this energy, urging us to confront what usually lies hidden. It’s a time to shed the old skin, to let go of past grievances and to rise from the ashes with a newfound sense of power.


New Moon in Scorpio conjunct MarsConjunct with Mars, the planet of action and desire, this lunar event takes on an assertive edge. Mars in Scorpio is at home in the intensity, propelling us to assert our will and claim our power. It’s about recognizing our deepest desires and having the courage to chase after them. This isn’t a time for passive reflection; it’s a period of proactive transformation—of seizing the reins and steering our lives with intention and passion.

New Moon in Scorpio cnj Mars opp UranusOn the other side of the zodiac, Uranus in Taurus forms a stark opposition to this New Moon. Uranus is the planet of revolution and unexpected change, and in the steadfast sign of Taurus, it shakes the very foundations we stand upon. This opposition highlights the tension between the desire for deep, soulful change (Scorpio) and the need for stability and security (Taurus). It’s a cosmic tug-of-war, with sudden shifts and insights that can alter our course in an instant.

What does this mean for us? Expect the unexpected. Breakthroughs and breakdowns may come hand in hand, but the ultimate goal is liberation from what no longer is best for us. It’s about finding balance between holding on and letting go, between transformation and stability. This New Moon asks us to embrace the fire of change, to be the alchemist of our own lives, transmuting challenges into opportunities for growth.

As you set your intentions under this New Moon, do so with the awareness that the path to renewal may be lined with unexpected twists. Yet, each step is a chance to deepen your understanding of yourself and to harness your inner strength. Scorpio’s waters run deep, and with Mars by its side, we’re equipped to navigate these waters with bravery.

And remember, with Uranus in the mix, the changes you initiate now could have long-term effects, reshaping your life in ways you might not yet imagine. Stay flexible, stay aware, and most importantly, stay true to your transformative journey.

Venus in LibraAs we navigate the energies of the Scorpio New Moon and its opposition with Uranus in Taurus, the presence of Venus in Libra bestows a harmonizing influence. Venus, the planet of love and connection, graces us with an undercurrent of grace and diplomacy during this intense period. In the sign of Libra, Venus encourages us to find balance and fairness in our interactions and to soften our approach with others. This can be especially beneficial when the waters of change stirred by Scorpio and the assertive drive of Mars can make our personal interactions more intense.

Venus in Libra reminds us of the power of partnerships and the strength found in unity. As we stand on the brink of personal revolution, Venus offers a calming perspective, helping us navigate our relationships with poise and to remember the value of compromise. It’s about weighing our desires against the needs of those we are in relationship with, ensuring that as we transform, we aren’t doing so at the expense of valuable alliances.

In these moments, when the sky is dark and our instincts push us toward profound shifts, Venus in Libra is the light that helps us maintain a sense of equilibrium. It’s the gentle touch amidst the storm, the reminder that, even as we delve into our individual depths, we are connected to others in a delicate dance of give-and-take. Let Venus’s placement be your guide to not only transform with intention but also to relate with compassion and understanding.

This New Moon is a potent time for personal alchemy. It’s about embracing the transformational fire, harnessing the energy of Mars, and maintaining equilibrium in the face of Uranus’ surprises. It’s a time to redefine what empowerment means to you and to step into a version of yourself that’s been waiting to come to light. The night is dark, but within it lies the seeds of your rebirth. Plant them with intention, water them with action, and watch as your new self unfolds and always remember to be kind to yourself.


The next update will be for the Full Moon in Gemini on November 27, 2023. In the meantime, stay safe. Stay sane. Stay awesome. The world needs you! ❤️

Chaos needs dispersing,
diffusing thoughts.
Like a flower scattering seeds in gales.
Anticipating they will
find the turf and bloom.
