daily horoscopes: november 7, 2018
Today is the New Moon in Scorpio. Does it get more serious than this?
Maybe, but today is pretty major.
Read the horoscopes for your Rising, Sun and Moon signs below for help navigating the tricky waters of a Scorpion Moon.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
It’s your one New Moon of the year. The day where you get to decide the direction. Where you get a clean slate, if you decide you want it. If you did get a clean slate, what would you use it for? What do you want to breathe fresh breath into? What have you been clutching to for so long that it’s now painful to keep dragging behind you? The cost of not letting it go is to sacrifice whatever lover, job, role, community, or other opportunity would have taken its place if you let it. Think about what you carry away from today very wisely. Like I said, you only get one New Moon in your sign a year.

Scorpio season, and particularly the Moons in Scorpio, have a particular way of enlivening the skeletons in your closet. Not just the bad exes and opportunities you never took, but whatever you’re afraid of. So, what are you scared of Sagittarius? Failure? Success? Life? Death? What idea or scenario stops you in your tracks? It’s time to address the things on your “worries and fears” list head-on, or you run the risk of letting them continue to run the show.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
When people don’t treat you right or support the incredible undertakings you pursue, they become detrimental to you. They become a worry in the back of your mind. A voice of scorn or uncertainty that you surely don’t need. You often keep these people in your life on principle, but what’s the use? Your power is untamable and they can’t keep up. Let the people with furrowed brows stay exactly where they are while you keep it moving. The right ones will find you along the journey.
Scorpio is your power-place. This New Moon could be incredibly defining for you, if you want it to be. In order to get the full effect, ask yourself: who do you want to be in the public eye? What do you want people to know you for? Working backwards from these bigger questions will get you to where you need to be, today. Especially if your master plan has become a little ungrounded or time has gotten away from you.
The way we humans learn about and understand the world is through stories. If you’re feeling a little lost as to what to do or where to go right now, find some stories that help you to make sense of it all. Make some up if you can’t find ones that soothe you. Do whatever it takes to make it so that you can get a bird’s eye view that you approve of and can understand your life from. Perspective is everything. Find some.
(March 21-April 19)
It can be hard to face the stuff you’ve been avoiding, but you’ve never been one to back down from a challenge. This New Moon is an invitation to sort through all of the things you’ve been brushing under the rug. The stress, the expectation, the unspoken weird dynamics between you and others, they all need to be brought to light. The game of survival is harder when you’re carrying things you’re not aware of or won’t acknowledge. Do the work to uncover and address anything and everything that you don’t want to hold you back any longer so you can move on lighter and stronger than ever.
(April 20-May 20)
You’ve been doing really well for yourself, but when you stop in your tracks to see what you’ve been neglecting, are your relationships part of what has fallen to the wayside? If so, today is the day to make it right. You are where you are today partially because of the love and support in your life. Make a plan to ensure this very important part of your existence never goes untended to again. Why do you make an effort to sustain yourself financially, emotionally and physically? Probably mostly because you want to be able to give and receive the love you want. So, make sure you do everything you can to secure your connections, now.
(May 21-June 21)
Your day-to-day life is available for a reset and upgrade. In order to take it, you must make sure that your habits and mindset can handle it. Take some time to assess what patterns you have been feeding and if they are doing for you what you want them to. If anything doesn’t seem to be doing you much good, ask yourself why you’ve been indulging in it anyway. See if you can make small changes to either make old habits more sustainable, or decide if they need to be thrown out altogether. Once you do this work, the opportunities available to you are endless.
(June 22-July 22)
Sexuality can be a hard topic to talk about and truly understand for yourself, but this New Moon it is important that you try. Try to talk about what dynamics you do and don’t like, what you do and don’t want out of your intimate interactions. Even talk to the people you have these interactions with, if you can. Your pleasure is important. Take baby steps in the direction of affirming this for yourself, today, and you will be much happier and much more satisfied than you knew you could be.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
It’s time to get back to basics. A fresh start requires fertile ground and a house-cleaning is overdue. Clean your mind of people and ideas you no longer want to think about. Clean your life of familial relationships that don’t serve you. Think about the fundamental differences between who you are now and who you want to be. Then it will become clear as to what else needs to be emptied and refilled.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
No one expects you to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. Most people don’t think about the details of things long after they happen, or even understand the full picture of what’s occurring as it happens, like you do. It’s time to let some of this stuff go. Some worst-case-scenarios you no longer need to keep on replay, some fear of what people think of you that you let make some of your decisions. Vow to distract yourself and redirect your mind and body whenever you start to go there. We don’t want you to be perfect, so stop trying.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Up until now, there is some way that you have been thinking about abundance that is limited. Some way that you have been holding yourself back. Some risk you haven’t taken. Now is the time, Libra. We make decisions so that they aren’t made for us. Decide that you will do everything in your power to make sure that you are meeting your full potential (which is endless), always. If you feed your fear instead, this Moon will most likely show you the cost.
