This transformative energy helps us shed the layers we’ve outgrown and manifest the lives we’ve been dreaming of.

Today, we’re going to take a look at the meaning of this particular New Moon, how this energy might affect you based on your sign, and how to make the most of it to begin attracting everything you want in life. Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about this mysterious New Moon in Scorpio.

When Does this New Moon Occur?

The New Moon in Scorpio will take place on November 13th, 2023 – however, the effects and the energy of this transit can be felt for 48 hours before and after the actual New Moon.

About the New Moon in Scorpio

This New Moon takes on an eerier quality than most – and with good reason.

First of all, this particular lunar phase is going to take place in the enigmatic, mystical sign of Scorpio, which happens to be a Fixed sign. Scorpio is also a Water sign, which relates to our emotions and intuition – your psychic senses will likely be tingling during this transit!

We can turn to numbers to discover more about this transit and its effects along with the astrological energy.

Scorpio rules the 8th house of the astrological chart – the house that connects to transformation, sex, death, rebirth, rituals, and spirituality. These are the themes you can expect to see emerging during this transit. And even further, the number 8 is associated with finances, making this an even more potent moon for manifesting abundance.

As a sign, Scorpio is all about taking a deep dive into any and all subjects, from the mystical to the mundane. Scorpio wants to know as much as it can about nearly any topic, and it doesn’t rest until it’s gotten to the bottom of the mysteries that interest this curious sign.

On the other hand, the New Moon is all about planting the seeds of the future and beginning to attract all those beautiful things you want in life, from romance to abundance and everything in between.

New Moon in Scorpio Themes

The balance between the energy of the New Moon, along with the nature of magnetic Scorpio, is unique to be sure.

Scorpio is ruled by the planet Pluto, the planet of power, transformation, and rebirth. You might be starting to understand why this energy is not only potent but crucial for our growth as individuals.

In addition to that transformative Pluto energy, we’ve got the energy of the 8th house, with its themes of sex, mystery, death, and rebirth. Imagine how magical the vibrations in the air will be when all of these mystical themes come together for this New Moon!

It’s not all sunshine and roses, however, as this transit can certainly bring some darkness into your life – both the literal darkness of the New Moon and the struggle of breaking old patterns and making room for new experiences and relationships.

This New Moon will have to tear a few things down so that you can begin to build them back up again – stronger, bigger, and more meaningful.

Main Themes:

  • Mystery
  • Intrigue
  • New experiences
  • Abundance
  • Manifestation
  • Transformation
  • Sensuality
  • Sexuality
  • Death
  • Rebirth
  • Embracing change
  • Karmic lessons

What parts of your life could use a refresh? What would you do with a new beginning or new, unexpected opportunities? What’s the first thing that pops up in your mind when you think of manifestation and the Law of Attraction? This is your New Moon wish!

The answer to the previous question is a clue given to you by the Universe.

Scorpio is the detective of the zodiac, always looking for answers to life’s questions. And this New Moon is asking you what you need to start questioning about your own life. What needs to change? In which ways do you need to relinquish control? How can you begin to become the person you’ve always been meant to be?

Who Will Be Affected By the New Moon the Most?

While everyone will feel the energy of this New Moon, it may be more palpable for Water signs – Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces – and especially for Scorpios themselves. The emotional, intuitive vibrations will mesh with the watery nature of these signs.

How to Embrace the New Moon in Scorpio Energy

While each person might experience different vibrations and lessons during this lunar transit, there are a few things that might crop up for most of us. Here are some things to keep in mind and look out for.

1. Blunt Behavior

Scorpio is one of the signs of the zodiac with the least perceptible filter; they say what’s on their mind at all times, and they don’t typically sugarcoat things for you or anyone else. So, when the New Moon, which can be an emotional transit, meets the frank and honest energy of Scorpio, you’ll feel a lot more open about your feelings.

2. Digging Deeper

Scorpio isn’t a sign that’s content to remain on the surface of things.

This sign digs deep into nearly any subject and doesn’t let go until it’s gotten to the truth of a situation. When the Moon is New, it can be an emotionally dark time, and the energy of Scorpio encourages you to explore those emotions and try to make sense of them.

3. Restless Energy

The New Moon can signal restless or unsettled energy, which is not vibrations that Scorpio flows very well with.

You may feel like you’re buzzing with agitated energy, so it’s important that you find a way to release the steam before it builds up. Focus on moving your body in any manner during this transit, from exercise to dancing.

4. Exposure

This is the time to allow yourself to shine, providing proverbial light to illuminate the darkness of the New Moon. It’s easy to hide ourselves and our personalities, but this transit encourages you to embrace yourself and let your true nature glow.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this New Moon is “A woman draws away two dark curtains, closing the entrance to a sacred pathway.”

Shining a light in the dark helps you step into your personality’s sacred nature, the spirituality that guides you through this life. In this example, the woman is the High Priestess, the tarot card that represents a mysterious, veiled woman and a situation that may not meet the eye.

This is the part of yourself that has access to an infinite well of celestial wisdom and can help you find solutions to challenging situations in your life. And when you draw back the metaphorical curtain, those answers hidden deep within yourself are finally revealed.

After all, you are wiser and more amazing than you probably know.

What Does the New Moon in Scorpio Mean for Your Zodiac Sign?


Determining Worth

This is a powerful time of transformations for you, Aries, and these transformations may involve karmic energy from the past.

This is the time to consider your intentions – are they pure? Are you coming from a good place in your heart, or are you driven by feelings of revenge or anger? Think long and hard about any actions you take now and try to determine whether they’re worth the potential consequences.


Connection & Space

This is an exciting time for you, Taurus, especially when it comes to your New Moon wishes surrounding love.

You may start to see some transformations in your love life or even in your platonic relationships – and based on how you play this energy, these transformations may bring you more joy and connection than you thought possible. But also it’s essential to consider whether or not you might need some space for yourself as well.


Little Things Become Big Things

As a Gemini, you’re pretty good at rolling with the punches.

It’s time to utilize your flexible nature and prepare yourself for changes that may be afoot right now. Your karma is something to consider right now to ensure that these changes are positive, so take inventory of your past behaviors and your intentions during this transit. This New Moon helps your dreams come true, especially when your intentions are good.


Make Room for Your Passions

This New Moon asks you to consider how hard you’ve been working lately, Cancer.

Is it time to take a break? Your hobbies and the activities that bring you pleasure are just as important as your responsibilities. Making time and space for the things you love to do helps you restore and refocus your energy so that you can focus on your projects and chores. We all need to take it easy every once in a while.



Embrace Your Tree of Life

This New Moon encourages you to consider your family, friends, and romantic connections, Leo.

You’re more focused on the love in your life and the foundations that you’re laying for the future. This energy may also signal new beginnings for these connections, so it’s important that you keep your heart and mind open to new possibilities. Don’t marry yourself to expectations right now – let your tree of life bloom freely.


Lace Your Words With Love

You know how to say what’s on your mind, Virgo, and this transit only heightens your blunt attitude.

But you should try to remember that it’s important to infuse your words with love and respect, or you may end up hurting the feelings of those you love with what you feel are constructive criticisms. Focus on deepening your connection with others through words of love and express your gratitude.


Money Matters Matter

This energy highlights your focus on wealth and abundance, and it may be time to get these matters in order, Libra.

When your financial situation isn’t flowing properly, it’s hard for you to concentrate on anything else. It’s time for you to trust the Universe and recognize that it will provide – it will take care of you. Focus on what you’re already grateful for to begin attracting even more abundance and financial security.


Rise From the Ashes

You are particularly affected by this New Moon because it’s occurring in your sign, Scorpio.

It’s time to shed the skin of the past and allow the new aspects of your personality to unfold and transform. This energy might feel intense, but it’s for the best. Trust it, and trust yourself right now. Try to recognize what isn’t working in your life and allow those things to flow away, making room for the many blessings that are headed your way.


Dig out the Treasure

This New Moon relates to your spiritual side, Sagittarius – especially with its interaction with the 8th house.

This is the time to reconnect to that side of yourself to allow your spirituality to flourish and become a bigger part of your life. You may need some alone time right now to clear your head and figure out what you want to learn and how you want to evolve in this life. Try to connect to your intuition and allow it to guide you.


Build & They Will Come

This energy brings hope for the future and helps you connect to your deepest desires, Capricorn.

You are often focused on your career and how to take it further than ever before, but maybe it’s time to start thinking about the other things you want in life – connections, relationships, adventure, travel. Unearth the desires that are buried deep inside your psyche and let them guide you toward the future you crave.


The Greater Good

The New Moon in Scorpio shines a spotlight on your public image and the karmic lessons you still need to learn.

Do you have any unresolved issues with people in your life? Now is the time to address them and try to make peace. Be gentle with others right now, Aquarius, as most people will be feeling tender right now. Share your affections, tie up loose ends, and make peace with anyone who might be feeling resentful or hurt right now.


Transcend Into the Light

As this New Moon occurs in a fellow Water sign, it may bring up unresolved or heavy emotions for you, Pisces.

However, these emotions will shed light on the things in your life that need changing or adjustment to help you fulfill your shining potential. It’s time to embrace transformation and trust the process. Creative self-expression may be just the thing you need to address and release any emotions that are holding you back.

Flow With the New Moon in Scorpio

This New Moon may bring intense energy or heavy emotions, but this energy flow is necessary for the beautiful growth it brings. Scorpio is tearing down old patterns of behavior to make room for new experiences during the New Moon, signals beginnings, and the turning over of a new leaf.

In order to bring new and better things into your life, you must confront the habits or energies that may be holding you back. Embrace the change to make the most of this transformative, potent transit.

Be sure you are tuned into your daily horoscope to find out how the new Moon in Scorpio will impact you directly. What are you hoping comes back on your karmic boomerang under this month’s New Moon in Scorpio?
