The New Moon of Sunday, October 27 and Monday, October 28 is a great window to seed intentions for change. With Mercury retrograde, this portal brings new energy to something we initiated previously. In close opposition to Uranus, it accents the freeing vibrations of the rebel planet that earlier this year finished its cycle in Aries and began a new, seven-year stint in Taurus.
The present lunation in Scorpio, sign of change, triggers Uranus’ new mission and—if used intentionally—facilitates the inner changes that will optimize the positive side of the rebel’s present cycle. This New Moon is an especially great portal for clarifying what we want, and writing down our intentions. Check your Sun and Rising signs for additional guidance.
Until March both Chiron and Uranus were in your sign, and you were taking your freedom very personally. This New Moon awakens you to the fact that things have shifted, as it triggers your Eighth and Second houses. Clarify an intention for change in your subconscious emotional patterns, a business partnership, inheritance, joint investment, or the backing you’d like to receive from the public or from a certain person.
Uranus in your sign is shaking things up, causing you to release what seemed secure, to pay attention to unexpected opportunities, and to rely more on your own inner resources. The present New Moon can make this seven-year journey much smoother if you use it to pay attention to dear ones and collaborators who will give you direction or help you grow indirectly by pulling you out of that lovely armchair you hold so dear and opening your mind to new vistas. Write down your intentions for mutually empowering relationships, partnerships and interactions with the public.
Last March, Uranus in Taurus kindly exited your Eleventh House. After seven years of ups and downs, your social life and progress on your goals started to seem more stable. Its present cycle activates your Twelfth House, fueling your dream life, helping you see hidden aspects of yourself and as you face them, get closure on past cycles. This closure which will free you to a revolutionary new beginning. The Scorpio New Moon is a great opportunity to look within, heed intuitive signs and messages from your dreams, and establish an intent for deep change of subconscious habits and old programs in order to release past blocks.
During his recent seven-year stint in Aries, Uranus sent you a series of jolts that shook you to the bones, making you doubt your goals and even the underpinnings of your life. The way became clearer starting last March, when Uranus entered the sign of your Eleventh House of friends and ideals, shaking up your network and leading you to reconsider your life mission—probably more than once. The present lunation is particularly useful for setting intentions regarding the development and application of your talents, the healing of your inner child, or to retrieve your sense of good fortune. This clarity will naturally attract higher connections and guidance.
When Uranus entered Taurus last March, it left the sign of your Ninth House—of vision, horizons, and beliefs—to enter your Tenth, where it triggers a new professional direction or a new type of long-term goal. Somehow, perspectives acquired in recent years push you to find a more exciting path. Apparent surprises on the home front—upsetting as they may seem—have to do with allowing yourself to explore new paths. The present New Moon favors setting intentions to center in gratitude for previous blessings and releasing them, as you open to positive new changes in your structure, home, and family that will support a new, empowering beginning.
After seven years of challenging adjustments, Uranus has moved into the sign of your Ninth House, where it beckons you to new perspectives, beliefs, and perhaps foreign lands. The shift will be more productive if you can retrieve the lessons of the previous cycle, which made you look at your shadows. The insight gleaned will also help you recognize your hidden talents of communication, analysis, and self-expression. The present New Moon favors intentions related to developing those gifts and applying them in higher education or another of the above-mentioned Ninth House areas.
When it shifted from your Seventh to your Eighth House sign last March, Uranus seemed to have freed you from a constant barrage of upsets. The calm is only partially real, as the planet of freedom has now gone underground, moving you to look more honestly at your emotions and issues around intimacy and shared projects or holdings. Ultimately, you’ll be freed from the fixation with looking good to others, and strengthen your own self-respect. The energy released in this process will lead to greater prosperity. At the present New Moon, set intentions related to congruence with your values and financial supply.
For seven years, Uranus’ transit through your Eleventh House brought chaos to your schedule, your feelings about work, and your daily routines. Since last March, its shift into Taurus has made these changes easier to handle because you can be clearer about your own needs and ideals, particularly in relationships. The present New Moon portal is propitious for setting intentions to modify your way of approaching life, interacting with others and showing yourself to the world, changes that will attract the freer, more stimulating connections you long for.
When Uranus entered the sign of your Sixth House in March, things seemed to quiet down a bit. For the previous seven years you were possessed by a need to throw off labels, patterns, and situations that didn’t resonate with your free spirit. This allowed you to reconnect with your adventuresome, creative self, but it probably left a trail of chaos that you are now called to clear up. The present lunation favors intentions related to releasing others from any guilt you may have projected on them when you were on this campaign, making amends, and rectifying things (without betraying your reaffirmed freedom). It also favors consulting a spiritual mentor or incubating a dream for guidance in this process.
During his transit through Aries, Uranus really shook up your attachment to familiar situations, possessions, and your image of yourself. Those were a touchy seven years, and the rebel planet’s entrance into Taurus last March freed you to apply your newfound lightness in reconnection with your magical inner child and ability to manifest a new life. Use this lunation to set an intention about believing in those inner powers and deepening your psychic and spiritual connections in order to develop them completely.
Until last March, Uranus in Aries helped you awaken to and develop your own voice. Now in Taurus, it’s pushing you to ground your talk and make tangible changes in your family situation, home, or other familiar surroundings. The present New Moon activates your Tenth and Fourth houses, favoring intentions that can integrate this new level of authenticity into the arena of your goals and professional direction.
Since last March, Uranus in the sign of your Third House has been waking you up to changes you sensed were taking place in your values and financial direction, but you weren’t quite sure how they would play out. Now your mind gets an influx of clearer flashes which are leading you to clarify these changes and somehow apply them in new modes of communication and self-expression that may also connect with your siblings. At the present lunation, take the reins of the call for change and write down your intentions to pursue higher education, explore new beliefs, travel, publish or somehow get your message across.
