New Moon in Scorpio Horoscopes

We are evolving into something new at October's New Moon
Rick Levine

We speak directly from our hearts with the hope of influencing the flow of events during the New Moon in Scorpio on October 30, 2016. Every New Moon is a moment in time when the creative power of the Sun joins with the nurturing energy of the Moon. Scorpio is the sign of transformational energy that creates emotional upheaval. We are evolving into something new now, with the same natural force that morphs a caterpillar into a butterfly.

But there's a twist to the current cosmic picture, entangling our intuition with our thoughts. The uncompromising Scorpio New Moon dances with messenger Mercury, aligning our conscious intentions with our willpower and giving our words an added boost of power. However, we might not be able to easily distinguish what's real since rational Mercury -- along with the Sun and the Moon -- smoothly trines imaginative Neptune. At worst, we can be misled by our own confusion; at best, we are guided by a higher spiritual calling. Discerning fact from fantasy requires hard work, but enables us to use our dreams as tools of manifestation.

Aries Horoscope (March 21 - April 19)

You are hitting the restart button to align an intimate partnership with your dreams. Although a new direction is favored, it's also possible to begin with a clean slate while still in a familiar relationship. Unlike the leopard that can't change its spots, you can alter your position on an important subject or emotionally transform within an existing structure. The passionate Scorpio New Moon triggers your 8th House of Deep Sharing, prompting you to seek more spiritual channels of expression in all facets of your life. Picasso wrote, "The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away."

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 - May 20)

You might overreact to someone's emotional intensity without even realizing that your own feelings are so rigid. However, you can make progress toward reaching your dreams if you have the courage to entertain alternatives. The fixed Scorpio New Moon occupies your 7th House of Others, making it look like someone else is the one who is so obstinate. Nevertheless, taking responsibility for your role in any relationship conflict improves the chances for a satisfactory outcome.

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 - June 20)

No matter what anyone tells you, imagining a healthier lifestyle isn't enough to manifest one. However, envisioning a daily schedule that includes proper diet, sufficient exercise and mental relaxation can set you off in the right direction as long as you're willing to take the next steps. Fortunately, the resolute Scorpio New Moon falls in your 6th House of Routine, empowering you to stabilize the patterns you put into motion. A Yiddish proverb warns, "Bad habits are easier to abandon today than tomorrow."

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 - July 22)

Your imagination can transport you to magical places that raise the stakes in the game of life. Your fantasies are the driving force behind all that you do, yet they also set the tone for the days ahead. The Scorpio New Moon activates your 5th House of Self-Expression, but rather than telling it like it is, you're more apt to share your bright vision for the future. Paradoxically, exploring the shadows is not a dark experience because the light of your awareness empowers you to co-create your future according to your highest hopes.

Leo Horoscope (July 23 - Aug. 22)

It's tempting to look at your past through a warped lens, remembering those interactions that left a lasting emotional imprint. But your memory is altering the events, glorifying the toughest times or magnifying other moments into melodramas. Nevertheless, the Scorpio New Moon's presence in your 4th House of Roots is not about getting lost by gazing in the rearview mirror. Taking one more glance back at your origins is only useful if you learn from your history and don't repeat your mistakes.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

Managing your daily schedule is not your cup of tea these days because you prefer to fly by the seat of your pants instead of writing everything down as you are typically known to do. But attending to details is not your modus operandi when surreal Neptune trines the Scorpio New Moon in your 3rd House of Communication. Rather than trying to keep up the appearance of accuracy, give yourself permission to drift off into your imagination; your dreams are creating the colorful threads that will be woven into your future.

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

Although you may be recovering from an emotionally difficult experience, you can bounce back with great resolve. The transformational Scorpio New Moon converses with talkative Mercury in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem, encouraging you to share your inner process with someone you trust. Bringing others into your world lifts your spirits by allowing you to spin an imaginative story around the actual facts. Reframing recent developments helps you see them in a more positive light.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

You are no stranger to the far reaches of your own subconscious. The evolutionary Scorpio New Moon energizes your 1st House of Self, filling your tank with emotional intensity that fuels profound change. But its connection with spiritual Neptune pulls you out of your personal story and sets you into a more universal framework where everything has cosmic significance. However, you are still the central character in your play, so bring the focus back to your metaphysical journey. You are growing and morphing in ways you do not yet understand. Flashes of synchronicity are signs that you're on the right track.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

You have a creeping suspicion that the current events in your life are more important than they seem on the surface. In fact, you might believe that your behavior could ensure your happiness or prevent it. However, it's tricky to know what's really happening while the mysterious Scorpio New Moon darkens your 12th House of Destiny. You're only capable of seeing your dreams, whether you're awake or asleep, so don't confuse your vision with the truth. Nevertheless, as author Colin Wilson wrote, "Your imagination should be used not to escape reality but to create it."

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

Although there are numerous forks in the road, you have a one-track mind as you stare at the top of the mountain. The insistent Scorpio New Moon galvanizes your 11th House of Long-Term Goals, motivating you to cling to your vision without regard to the circumstances you encounter. Nevertheless, it turns out that your own imagination is more of a distraction than you realize. Dreaming your future is a viable plan as long as you know where the truth ends and your fantasies begin.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

You're fiercely ambitious about achieving an important life objective over the coming weeks and you're not willing to settle for less in your pursuit of success. Your powerful intentions are your secret weapons as the magnetic Scorpio Moon energizes your 10th House of Public Recognition. Don't allow anyone's negativity to interfere with you chasing your dreams. Trust your psychic powers to steer you in a positive direction. Let your light shine so brightly that others can see their way out of the dark.

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 - March 20)

You can believe in something with such an unwavering intensity that your intention alters the fabric of reality. Clever Mercury aligns with the unwavering Scorpio New Moon in your 9th House of Big Ideas, inflating your plans until they are too grand to fit into your life. However, visionary Neptune is working behind the scenes, setting the stage for real magic to occur. Believing in your dreams is such a powerful force that nothing can prevent them from coming true.
