Forward momentum, healing and the return of hope – these are three big themes likely to make headlines at the Scorpio New Moon on November 15.
Taking place within days of the hugely transformative energy of the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction on November 12th, this New Moon in many ways, is about regaining perspective, bridging divides and healing wounds through a mixture of truth-telling, compassion, empathy and forgiveness – qualities that we’re likely to see being expressed once again by those in positions of power, starting with Joe Biden.
Indeed, finding meaning in the many difficult and tragic twists and turns that 2020 has brought our way, is one of the gifts of Jupiter, which has played it fairly low key this year – apart from it’s occasional nods to Neptune and Pluto in April, June-July and October-November.
Now, however, as we gradually make the transition from Scorpio to Sagittarius season (Nov 21), with its eclipses in Gemini-Sag and the ingress of Jupiter into Aquarius on Dec 19, ready for it’s supercharged conjunction with Saturn at the solstice, that fizzy and ebullient optimism and gift for seeing the bright side which Jupiter is known for, will begin to gradually emerge from the shadows. A trend highlighted by a set of grounding sextiles between the New Moon and the stellium of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.
However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows – with Mars turning direct in hotheaded Aries on Nov 14, and Venus making a tense square to Pluto on Nov 15th – the day of the New Moon – it’s possible that we may first need to find ways to constructively deal with the release of pent-up frustration and anger that may have been bubbling away below the surface during Mars retrograde and Scorpio season.
Here, ongoing contacts between the luminaries and compassionate Neptune should help to facilitate flow and help us overcome resistance, encouraging us to practise forgiveness and surrender in order to find inner peace, especially when it comes to situations or events that are beyond our control.
