The Moon travels through all 12 zodiac signs every month, but when a New Moon occurs in any of them, it represents a powerful expression of the meaning of the Moon in that sign. Any New Moon mean beginnings and growth – it’s a time when plans should be set in motion so their results can be reaped during the Full Moon.
Astrology tells us that when the New Moon is in Scorpio, it's always a time when emotional control is needed, especially this year. That’s because Uranus, which is opposite this New Moon, can add a disruptive spin to the already intense feelings that you can expect at this time, making it too easy to jump into the water without knowing how deep it is.
At the same time, Uranus can support solid and lasting relationships as indicated by its place in the Venus-ruled Earth sign Taurus. Per astrology, there might be news about the economy or important large-scale scandals that come into the light of day between this New Moon and the next, because Uranus is known to bring out the truth.
This should be an awesome time for you to start something new, but for each of the signs, this New Moon will have different effects, according to the Solar house, or the zodiac sign where this Moon found relative to your sign. Since it will be forming the backdrop for an entire month, you can expect it to supply the energy that fills your sails and moves the waves until you have a new cycle to work with at the next New Moon.
Having a New Moon in the eighth Solar house of transformation is not always a fun time, Aries, but there’s an outside chance that it can be a profitable one. It’s not a good idea to ask others to help with your personal projects, because you may meet with enough resistance that you think about abandoning them. Thanks to Uranus, people may try to make changes your plans, or in the way you do things, so that they can profit from your ideas and efforts. You might have some luck regarding credit issues or old bills. Until the next New Moon, doing some research and being clever about money can vastly improve your financial life.
