Mars Joins the Sun in Scorpio and Thursday’s New Moon

“Every beginning
is only a sequel after all,
and the book of events
is always open halfway through.” Wislawa Szymborska

“Do you think that the grass is growing so wild and thick
for its own life?
Do you think the cutting is the ending, and not also
a beginning?
This is the world.” Mary Oliver

November’s New Moon is on Thursday Nov 4 EDT. This New Moon in Scorpio, the sign of transformation, provides a good time to “shed the old skin,” and to invite new ways of being  and living into our lives.  It’s an excellent time to set intentions about improving health and well being. Given the penetrating nature of Scorpio, it provides good timing to ascertain what your personal needs are on a deep level now.

The Sun and Moon oppose Uranus at this time indicating  a lunar cycle (through Dec 4) that is  likely to include some surprises and unexpected events . The influence of Uranus indicates a good time to assess personal needs for freedom and independence. It bodes well  to take extra time with decision making as this combination of planets tends towards the impulsive and erratic. There can be surprising outcomes.

Mars is now in Scorpio and both Mars and the Sun are forming a T-square with the Saturn /Uranus square. This indicates a time of hard work – Mars and Saturn in square aspect are sometimes described as driving with the gas and the brakes on. It can also be a time which can be more accident prone as actions can be more impulsive and erratic with the Uranus influence. In negotiations, agreement may be harder reach. This aspect will be in play through the middle of the month. Patience, kindness and respect for the opinions of others will go a long way under this influence.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”The ocean covered in white caps.”
