New Moon in Scorpio

November 7th 2018: The final Scorpio New Moon of Jupiter’s transit through Scorpio, less than 24 hours before his ingress into his home sign of Sagittarius.  At 15° Scorpio, this new moon takes place at the exact midpoint of fall equinox and winter solstice, a cross quarter holiday most commonly symbolized by bare skeletons, representing the underworld state of consciousness, stripped down to the bones.  This new moon allows us to experience the supreme bliss of letting go of everything that has happened to us since Jupiter entered Scorpio on October 10th, 2017.  For many of us this has been a year of brutal loss as long-buried truths were revealed.  Flesh has been torn away to reveal the underlying skeletal structure.  And I am grateful. My new moon intention is to lay these bones to rest.

On November 6th, Uranus retrograde crossed back to 29° Aries, forming a quincunx to Jupiter at 29° Scorpio.  This aspect is unpredictable and can manifest in any number of ways: a shocking development that transforms the narrative of the past year’s drama; getting caught up in grand ideals and losing focus of the plan; working together with an adversary on a common goal. Etc. Regardless of how it may manifest, this is an exciting aspect for Jupiter as he exits Scorpio, full of suspense and surprises.

Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio and holds considerable influence over Jupiter and the new moon.  Today he is met by a conjunction from Vesta, together at 19° Capricorn.  This is beautiful symbolism.  As Jupiter leaves Pluto’s fixed water sign, and enters the sign of his own rulership- mutable fire sign Sagittarius- the priestess of the sacred flame is united with the ruler of the Underworld.

Stay tuned to Planetary Clarity for tomorrow’s article on Jupiter’s grand entrance into Sagittarius and his epic trine to the mean lunar north node at Zero Leo.
