Auspicious Moon: New Moon in Scorpio Oct 2011


OCTOBER 26, 2011

Abstracts from: Rex Estell, Leslie Hale and Lee Stillwaters

The new moon in Scorpio always seems to fascinate me. I do not know if it is because of the weather change (autumn my favorite time of the year) or just that I was born on the New Moon in Scorpio.  Nevertheless, the newness of the moon will be greatly embraced.  This will be probably on of the most beautiful appreciated moons, but it is a double whammy for Scorpios because the Sun (the way the world is), Moon (The way one views them selves), Venus (Planet of love) and Mercury (Planet of communications) are all coming to kiss Scorpios.

Moons are very important aspects to our characteristics and how we view life. The full moons usually effect our emotions and how we react to life and the new moons are usually how we view life in an outward expression. But it is also emphasized as a very auspicious day into the in Hindu calendar which I will discuss later in this article.

Being born on a new moon in a persons natal chart and full moon in the progressed chart can be difficult but, “it is all in the attitude” (Lee Stillwaters), “it is how you deal with the situations around you“(Leslie Hale), and it “it is because you are maturing like a beautiful butterfly” (Rex Estell).

The most wonderful gift that was given to me on my birthday was early…..a bit of advice which will be embraced with love and gratitute. “New Moon in Scorpio also makes a very close conjunction to your natal Sun and Moon just two days after your birthday, so it’s no wonder you’re starting a whole new direction in your life!”  What a wonderful gift. Thank you Lee for thinking of me on my birthday rather early …..Having said that lets look at the general tendencies of this beautiful new moon in Scorpio.



On October 26, 2011, the sky will void the moon to create a symphony to the new moon in Scorpio at 3 degrees humming the skies at approximately 12:56 pm EST and 2:56 PST.  These degrees are varied within a 6 to 7 degrees orb.

Those that will be affected by this wonderful moon will be early born Scorpios from October 24 through October 30 give or take a few day and early fixed signs (Leo, Aquarius, and Taurus) even though Scorpios will have more grace.

“The Scorpio New Moon is in the early degrees, which is great for a fresh flush of the toxins, so by 2012 we’re on the Master Cleanse version of reality! With Venus and Mercury as well, nice for Scorpios, boosting the integrity of the Universe, with Uranus all the way back at 1 degree Aires, the beginning, so more NEW starts for all who have had false starts, and are frustrated with the slow pace of change, when it’s so long overdue.” ~Rex Estell

The New Moon signals a time for making plans to start something new.  If it be the way that one views life or even the passion within you.  It is about seeking expression and freedom.  It is also a time to take initiative to get rid of negative patterns of emotions and any bad lifestyle that keep you obtaining your goals and wishes.

For those fixed signs that are born around the beginning of their Sun sign the triggers of this new moon will be welcoming newness. For example this new moon will trigger my 5th and 6th house. The fifth house emphasizes, love, children, creativity, attitude and change.  The 6th house represents, work, commitment, logistics and sympathy.  To find out how this new moon will affect you I would highly recommend making an appointment with my recommended Astrologers can be found here

“Scorpio is the natural ruler of the eighth house of sex, other people’s money as well as personal change and transformation. Now, is the time move beyond barriers that have held you back and see the freedom of release and personal transformation. Scorpio is a fixed sign and decisions made at this time are likely to have lasting consequences. On the same day Venus squares Mars bringing sex, and intimate encounters with others to the forefront. Spending time with your significant other man seems very important today. You could meet someone new if you are single, and this New Moon is favorable for Water Signs.” Leslie Hale

” This year’s New Moon in Scorpio coincides with Diwali, the annual celebration of the Hindu Festival of Lights.  The sign of Scorpio represents power in our lives, and this is the 5th of 6 Super Moons during 2011 heightening the levels of seismic activity and human emotions on Earth. The New Moon in Scorpio is awakened by a quincunx from Uranus in Aries, amplified by an opposition from Jupiter in Taurus, and supported by a harmonious sextile from Pluto in Capricorn.  These three aspects to the Super New Moon in the sign of power ensure that its effects will be noticed in our collective awareness, as it provides each of us with an opportunity to plant new seeds of intention with firm resolve.” Lee Stillwater 

Each Astrologer has a unique prospective of their interpretation of Astrology and the delivery is the key to understanding.  It seems to me depending upon how you connect with your Astrologer will be the way how you understand this transit as a unique prospective of change. Keep in mind Vedic readers are not Astrologers rather the utility to help you understand, adapt and cultivate change without causing too much chaos and turmoil in lives. They are the grassroots of truth behind an action and Astrologers are the outcome.  I highly recommend you contact my recommended astrologers prior to phoning me and build and establish a rapport with true integrity and acceptance so that the information that is given to you by me will be a welcome element of change that will be acceptable and adaptable during this new moon phase.

New moon represents things you must plan before taking action.  Unlike the full moon which represented emotional blueprint or rather a thinking guide, the New moon is about taking the seeds and plant them. You will know what your heart wishes and you will have to trust that everything will be fine.  Have faith that the Universal energies will be the guide for unique possibilities. Imagine for a moment that you in a crowd of people and you are the only one dancing and the music brings vibration to your soul.  Though people may stare at you and think you’re crazy, know in your heart that they wish they had the same music playing in their hearts and soul.

The new moon questions and blesses the opportunity which is created through life and using every opportunity that is available. The new moon will bless the energy to get some serious work done and looking at the future of ultimate bliss. But remember it is not the time to actually put plans in motion rather plan it out and show the universal energy that all is well and all is taken into consideration. Cross every T and dot every I, and only then will the plans be blessed with ever loving energies of blissfulness.


The new moon in Scorpio can be very intense for many therefore; there is nothing wrong with finding a resolution to a conflict in any parts of life except making sure to detach emotions from facts. Through conflict resolution by practicing detachment will emphasize the concept ofPhoenixrising out of ashes being stronger than ever before. The new moon in Scorpio will allow the natural flow to rise above the depths of lows while looking at and investigating the depths of actions.

“In other words, we keep starting over until we are happy with the way things look in every individuals eyes, we won’t be ready. Like those who refuse to leave the birth/death cycle until ALL are ready, so no one gets left behind, that chooses to become meta-physical, which would be all and everyone, we are one, always were, always will be, though we get to experience duality as a choice, so we can appreciate the oneness in life, very Gemini/Scorpio! Rex Estell

Scorpios and fixed signs will not only unravel the mystery but also find the answers that no one ever could.  Even though these are the questions that have burned the pages of history- These people will draw the curtains open.  This moon is a determinate factor to come alive and will do what ever that is possible to improve your self and recharge batteries. Do not be scared of the power of the new moon allow and embrace everyone around you.


Moon in Scorpio is not only about finding depths of your soul but it is also about accepting that there is a underlining darkness of ones self image and finding ways to cleanse it.  The key here is to cleanse these parts to allow and to find a healer who can assist in this area with openness and empathy. But not just any healer will do.  The healers who choose to be the most direct and brutally honest will put an end to your denials. Submerging into the sub-consciousness and discovering the spiritual self is the theme of the new moon.  The newness also allows dual prospective and deeper journey into the cause of peoples actions and accepting them at face value. Seeking the deeper truth and not being afraid to tap into the taboo of the forbidden will allow the change and embrace the fire of the soul in what we call life.

With Mercury conjunct Mars you may engage in debate and it would be very easy to let a conversation turn into an argument or disagreement. Scorpio is about intensity, and key will be to remember that today’s passions may not seem quite as important once this New Moon energy starts to dissipate.  With Mars sextile Saturn this is stability possible. So, let the energy of this powerful new moon allow you to flow toward the personal transformation that life is always seeking.”~Leslie Hale 

When the moon is in SCORPIO, we become more comfortable to hidden or profound powers and our intuitive antennas may be activated. This is a time for working to maintain emotional control, and for working on overcoming inner obsessive thoughts or desires. There can be a need for recognizing habits are negative and need to stop and reactions that keep you locked in power struggles.

This New Moon is most favorable for seeking assistance from your divine center and Higher Power to gently release your self from inner negativities. Expression is the focus and physical power is the force that will move the spiritual self into more spiritual space.

This particular New Moon in Scorpio is quite unique it will bring commitments to an all time high.  With 4 (four planets in Scorpio) it is all about love how far will you walk for the real thing? How far will you run for love? But it is not just about love it’s about commitments of any kind.  The universe will only support what is good for you.  The new moon in Scorpio will bring the truth.  If a relationship is based upon a fear of being alone this moon will make you be very well aware that it is the wrong thing to do.  If the relationship is based upon one way love it will also make it clear. But if the relationship is based upon unconditional love then the relationship will solidify. Scorpio is all about all or nothing.

When Uranus goes direct on 12/9, and goes over this degree in Jan. it will re-launch the delayed changes, to start the year of 2012, when we all expect to see them the most and we will! Uranus is calling a lot of shots now, as it goes back to Zero, but not back into Pisces. Which means its official, no more Retrograding back to Zero, we REALLY begin to move forward, and very quickly in to the new.” Rex Estell

People may be feeling more vigorous and more demanding, as well as being obligatory and resourceful. In general, emotions at both ends of the spectrum are heightened and likely to vary quite a bit throughout this influence which usually last for two weeks.  Relationships are on a deeper level could be made during the moon in Scorpio. The Scorpio possesses a secretive and penetrative nature. Feelings of envy and vengeance may arise, so special caution is needed to avoid altercations.

The Scorpio Moon can be a catalyst for power urges, which can often result in violence or even homicidal impulses. The ruler of Scorpio is Pluto which can be impulsive and Pluto has very strong desires to many things in life even more so obsessive and impulsive. People often become aggressive, critical, impatient and moody while the Moon is in Scorpio.  There is a marked increase of intensity and a highlighted sensitivity to personal offenses and insults. Remember that Scorpio has a suspicious and secretive nature.  Avoid social complications.

Beware of suspicion and watch out for the Scorpio nip. Please remember to forgive and forget.  Be cautious interacting with the opposite sex so that it does not seem repulsive or ego centric.  However, this could be a good time for intense merging with another on a deep emotional level!

“Om Angarakaya Namaha”

(Om Ang-ar-ka-ya Na-ma-ha)

In addition I may recommend calling on to Kali

Om Kali Namaha

“Om ca li Namaha”

Kali is often represented as a deity of Scorpio.  She bring justice to the feminine power she is also a protector of family and motherhood.

This mantra is the call to the lord of peace and removal of any obstacles in your way.

The intention of this mantra is the to keep up in balance from loosing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy.

With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is a slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10.  This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle.  Remember never make the affirmations beginning with “I need”, it must be worded “I will need to be shown how to retain”

Addition to this wonderful moon an auspicious event called Dwali, which always falls on the New Moon in October or New Moon in November.  This auspicious time is a wonderful even to the New Year for Hindus. The festivities began as early as 23rd of October and will continue through the 28th of October. This blessed holiday is also known as a festival of lights. It is a time when Hindus do Pujas, dance and appreciate another year that has been bestowed upon them.

Dwali also represents first day of our lives it is when humanity is called upon to  embark a change in our lives to be a little more giving, forgiving and understanding.  If you are a Hindu I really suggest embraces this holiday and wishing you the best of Dwali May Luxmi bless you with all of her magnificence.

Please note I do not claim to be an astrologer, these are general tendencies.  The utilities of astrology are used as element into Vedic readings – it embraces and encompasses transformable changes in to sublime bliss.

I would suggest if you are a fixed sign especially Scorpio or have Scorpio energy in your chart I might suggest to get a in-depth reading with me to find out where this energy is moving as well as speak to your astrologer and find out where the new beginnings are going to be triggered.

Wishing you the fruitful moon and a wonderful Dwali ever!
