In astrology, Scorpio represents transformation, change, elimination, and rebirth. This Scorpio season, in particular, has been focused on immense personal growth, new revelations, and important metamorphosis for us all. Lessons, areas of misalignment, and uncomfortable resistance that we have experienced have quietly revealed what we should remove from our lives in order to make room for positive evolution. And the new moon in Scorpio of 2021, happening November 4th at 5:14 p.m., ET, will initiate a new lunar cycle in alignment with these themes.

A new moon occurs when the moon and sun form an exact connection with one another in the sky, giving the visual effect from Earth of a dark moon. In this case, both luminaries will be in the sign of Scorpio, forming an activating connection with Mars. In ancient Roman mythology, Mars was the God of war, and his planetary energy represents how we take action, our instinctual nature, aggression, and drive. Mars will be at home during the new moon, as it’s one of the planetary rulers of Scorpio and also forming an opposition with unpredictable Uranus in Taurus. This pushes us to take sudden yet inspired action in order to make necessary changes aligned with our true values.

Another important aspect to note is that the new moon in Scorpio of 2021 in Mars will create a square aspect with structural innovator Saturn in Aquarius. This planetary connection will reveal unstable or rocky foundations and influence you to break them down and remove them due to tension and discomfort. At the same time, new opportunities and relationships will start to manifest in their place thanks to this much-needed clean slate. This is due to the positive influence of contractual Mercury in Libra forming powerful aspects with both expansive Jupiter in Aquarius and groundbreaking Pluto in Capricorn.

This new moon in Scorpio of 2021 can feel like a mixed bag of emotions due to the moon being in its fall position.
