The beginning of an emotionally intense and life-transforming month due to unexpected, profound, eye-opening and lasting changes in matters related to professional, financial and material issues.

For some, it can signal the start of a new relationship with strong physical undercurrents that will stir deep emotions and passion with the potential of healing past hurts and betrayals.


In the background, Venus and Mercury, respectively in the late degrees of the tropical signs of Sagittarius and Libra, add a lighter tone to this New Moon, and help bring expansion and growth through talks and negotiations, travel plans and new philosophical perspectives. This may be the last chance for Leos, Aquarians, Sagittarians and Geminis to seize an opportunity for personal growth.

However, on November 6th, Venus will move into the serious, career-oriented sign of Capricorn, favorable for traditional commitments and career-oriented partnerships.


The arrival of Venus in Capricorn will set the tone for relationship issues that will last several months, beginning November 17 until March 1st 2022. Past lovers, old friends and acquaintances usually reappear in our lives during the period that Venus goes into retrograde motion. It will be an opportunity to look closely at what we value in ourselves and others.

The New Moon and Astrological Sun Signs

People born between the following dates are most affected by this New Moon and its meaning:

  • November 2 – 11 (Scorpio)

  • April 30 – May 10 (Taurus)

  • August 3 – 12 (Leo)

  • January 31– February 8 (Aquarius)


For Leos and Aquarians, this New Moon will bring out issues linking home life, reputation and career.


For Scorpios and Taureans, this New Moon underlines issues of security and power within relationships, whether romantic, contractual or professional. For Scorpios particularly, changes in their partner's physical or financial situation may force them to take initiatives to protect their emotional wellbeing.


For Taureans, instability or changes in their environment can force them to seek emotional support from their partners or form new relationships and alliances. Health matters may be the cause to seek help.


In general, for both these signs, and for Aquarians and Leos, this New Moon can revive passion and zeal in their endeavors.


Late Sagittarians, Geminis, Aquarians and Leos are mostly concerned by the Venus-Mercury subplot of this New Moon. It may be the last chance to take up on an offer that will be beneficial for their personal growth.


The Scorpio New Moon reveals an intense need, awareness and desire for transformation and rebirth through deep, life altering experiences.


Whatever occurs during this month will require self-mastery and deep commitment.
