Since there’s a new moon in Scorpio on Saturday, November 18, this week’s horoscope gives an overview of the new moon for all signs, along with info for your sign on what part of your life the new moon takes place in. Be sure to read the info for all signs, and then for your sun sign and rising sign, since there’s an opportunity to begin a new cycle in these areas and these are parts of your life you may like to make new moon wishes for. (Don’t know your rising sign? Here’s how to find it.)

For all signs

The Scorpio new moon takes place on Saturday, November 18 at 6:42 a.m. US Eastern time / 3:42 a.m. US Pacific time. The new moon is a perfect time to begin new endeavors, projects, habits, behaviors, and a new cycle in your life. The time between the new moon and the full moon is good for focusing on your efforts, making progress, and getting clear on what you want to bring into your life.

The new moon is also a good time to set your intentions for the weeks ahead, and a great way to do this is by creating a new moon wish list. If you don’t know how to create one, learn how. The best time to write your new moon wish list is at the time the new moon happens, or within 8 hours after it takes place.

Scorpio energy is often associated with power, secrets, change, intimacy, soul mates, transformation, and self-mastery. This new moon is a good time for letting go of the old, diving deep into what makes you tick, and focusing on what you’d like to change or be self-disciplined about. Hidden information can come to light under the influence of Scorpio, and you could feel more inclined to take risks and transform an area of your life. New moon wishes that harness the energy of Scorpio can be related to romantic relationships, changing up power dynamics in a relationship or situation, finding the self-discipline and strength to change something that’s become a behavioral pattern, finding strength to take a risk, conquer a fear, or make a change, forgiving another person (or even yourself), financial situations that involve the resources of another person or group, and letting go of something you know you should move past.

Also in the stars this week:

★ Venus is conjunct Jupiter on Monday, November 13. This could be an optimistic day where you encounter warm and friendly people, or are feeling social.

★ The Mercury retrograde pre-shadow period (leading up to Mercury stationing retrograde on December 3) begins on Tuesday, November 14 at 8:49 p.m. US Eastern time / 5:49 p.m. US Pacific time. This is a time for getting set for Mercury stationing retrograde. Make backups of important information and data, take extra care with communication, follow up if you’re expecting to hear from someone and don’t (you never know if that message you sent wasn’t seen or wasn’t delivered!), remember to be patient, and keep a good sense of humor at hand.

★ There’s a Venus-Neptune trine on Thursday, November 16. Daydream alert! This day may not be the most productive day for getting tasks at home, school, or work accomplished. That said, it’s a great time to let your imagination and creativity run free and to dive into a creative project.

Have a wonderful and starry kind of week, and remember to write your new moon wish list on Saturday, November 18 at the time of the new moon or within 8 hours after it takes place!
