This Week in Astrology With Nick Newmont: Oct. 27-Nov. 2

by Nick Newmont


A New Moon will occur on Sun., Oct. 30, 2016, at 10:38 a.m. PST.

A new lunar cycle begins with a New Moon in Scorpio. This cycle presents a good time to commit to personal goals that portray the positive sides of Scorpio. Since this is the last New Moon before election day, I encourage you to set your intentions this Sunday on what you want, not on what you don’t want. Focus your attention on your intention!

A New Moon in Scorpio brings out intense feelings; good or bad, right or wrong. This lunation is a time when we can focus on not only being passionate about things but to dig deep and get to the bottom of the 8th house issues at hand.

Scorpio New Moons are generally good for working on our deeper, Plutonian side. We may want to pinpoint the things in our lives that make us feel out of control or uneasy, so we can transform. This New Moon cycle is also an opportunity to explore within and find what leads us to engage in self-destructive behaviors. This cycle represents an opportunity to take out our personal trash–material and spiritual. With this potent Scorpio energy, if we use it correctly, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives and commit to those changes.

Scorpio teaches us not to accept everything we are told as gospel. As you observe your behavior as well as the people in your life, learn the difference between intention and agenda. During this New Moon do everything with conviction and focus on quality over quantity. If there is a project or problem that needs addressing, this is the time to commit to it. The Scorpio New Moon evokes a sense of purpose in us.

What intention are you setting this Sunday?
