This New Moon at 3 degrees Scorpio gives you the opportunity to look deep inside yourself, to question what is important in your life and to strip away anything that is no longer serving you. It could be a car that’s not really working properly, it could be your house that needs some repairs, it could be a business that isn’t giving you pleasure any more, it could be a relationship that’s lost its fire…Be prepared to discard what is not working and release it. Don’t hang on. Make space for new, more nourishing experiences to come into your life. Scorpio is all about letting go. The more you hang on, the more difficult it will be for you. If you go along with the changes that are being asked of you, your life will be a whole lot easier to manage.
What are your deepest wishes? If you are stuck in a quagmire of emotions and unhealthy habits that are keeping you from achieving your goals, use this New Moon in Scorpio to set serious new goals and intentions. Scorpio inspires persistence and determination, the courage to face unpleasantness and hardship in order to grow stronger, and ultimately become more confident and more satisfied with your life.
Anything connected with other people’s money, joint resources, inheritances and financial partnerships may come up for resolution during this time so be ready to examine your finances in depth.

Find out where this New Moon falls in your chart, and you will see which life area is being most impacted. For me, it’s in my 5th house of creativity and my own business. I’ve been hanging onto a web hosting company because I have paid so much in advance to them for their services. However, I have not been satisfied with their way of doing business and despite losing a considerable sum of money, I am transferring to another provider who I feel can more meet my needs. I have come to terms with letting go of the money in order to be treated in a more favourable way. Scorpio often indicates a loss – and in this case it’s money – in order to move onto something new and better.
So for example, if you are a Taurus or have Taurus rising, the New Moon in Scorpio will be in your 7th house of relationships. You may need to ask yourself whether there are relationships in your life that you need to let go of, or maybe let go of control, make radical changes, take back your power, be prepared to be alone, face the issues you have been avoiding, look at the issues that have been bothering you, see if they can be resolved and if not, be prepared to walk away.
If you don’t have a birth chart, then use your Sun sign or your rising sign if you know it.
If you are an Aries Sun or Ascendant, it will fall in your 8th house.
Taurus Sun or Ascendant, in your 7th house
