This could be the month the world changes
by DK Brainard
The new moon in Scorpio on Thursday makes an uncommonly close opposition to Uranus. Here, we have a showdown. Or is it a negotiation?
As you can see in the chart, the Sun and Moon at 12 Scorpio 40 are applying to the opposition aspect with Uranus at 12 Taurus 47 - a difference of seven arc minutes or about one-eighth of a degree at the moment of the exact New Moon.
On the Scorpio side, this is deep, intense astrology with a very internal flavor. First, it's a New Moon - the low point in the lunar energy/emotional cycle. And it's in Scorpio, the sign that specializes in going deep within and brooding, ruminating, or meditating on its outer experiences before responding to them.
Scorpio is the psychological investigator - the methodical detective - of the zodiac. Scorpio solves the cases that have baffled Scotland Yard and Interpol, but it does so on its own timeline and using its own mysterious methods.
And...over on the Taurus side of the circle we we have Uranus - the alien intelligence that works so fast it's literally from the future. Uranus strikes like lightning and, like lightning, Uranus' effects are often simultaneously illuminating and destructive. Uranus lights up the landscape, delivering huge downloads of information in a split second, while blowing up whatever is old and in the way.
Oppositions in astrology show face-to-face (or head-on) encounters. An opposition aspect could symbolize a couple standing at the altar, pledging their love until death do them part.
It could show two boxers tapping gloves in the ring a moment before they spend the next hour trying to knock one another unconscious.
Ultimately, as Tatiana and I explore in this month's New Moon Report, we are the ones who will decide whether this polarized encounter of archetypes is labeled as a productive meeting or a destructive showdown.
Either way - especially with the New Moon degree triggered later in November by oppositions of Mercury and Mars to Uranus - this New Moon sets the tone for a month to remember. Uranus promises there will be shocks, upheavals, and surprising bursts of information. Some will be innovative, revolutionary and progressive. Some will be harsh and draconian. And some will be shocking by what they reveal - the machinations of the powerful suddenly laid out in public like the detective's exhibit of the clues that close the case.
I feel this month could go down as one of the most radical periods we've seen since the start of the COVID-19 era. One of the things we kept coming back to while recording the New Moon Report is that we the people have the power to alter the course of civilization right now. But we have to stop lying to ourselves and stop making excuses for our abusers. Will we rise up and reclaim the world, beginning this month? Or will the chaos sorcerers frighten us back into the collective sleep that we've been threatening to awaken from?
November's astrology is deep, introspective, and transformational. It also presents plenty of crisis opportunities and legitimate springboards to reaching new levels of enlightenment and inner freedom.
