New Moon 18 November 2017 Getting Hotter

New Moon November 2017 AstrologyThe new moon on Saturday the 18th of November 2017 is at 26 degrees Scorpio. New moon November 2017 is  almost exactly opposite a planet new to astrology. Minor planet Sedna was only discovered in 2003 so astrologers have only just started to understand it’s meaning. Most interpretations seem to be based on the mythology of the arctic goddess of the sea because the planet was named after her. Due to the orbital history of Sedna I am sure it’s associated with climate change and rising sea levels.

The November 18 new moon links a new awareness of climate change to the most important planetary aspect of 2017, Saturn trine Uranus. This major aspect will help you make positive changes in your life in response to the threats posed by climate change. New moon November 2017 will help you find practical and creative ways to save energy, while making your life more efficient and productive.

New Moon Meaning

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. This is an excellent time for making a fresh start and turning over a new leaf or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The effects of the November 18 new moon lasts four weeks up to the December 18 new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from November 18 to the December 3 full moon.

New Moon November 2017 Astrology

The November 18, 2017 new moon at 26°19′ Scorpio makes three very tight planetary aspects. It is a little too far from any major fixed stars to fall under their influence. The three aspects are not common ones and many astrologers would not include them in a moon phase reading. I think they are very significant because of the tiny orbs of the aspects and the increasing importance of the minor planet Sedna.

26°19′ Scorpio – conjunct New Moon
26°22′ Sagittarius – semisextile Saturn
25°23′ Aries – quincunx Uranus
26°13′ Taurus – opposite Sedna

The astrology chart for new moon November 2017 below shows two major aspects – the new moon opposite Sedna in red, and Saturn trine Uranus in blue. First of all, the flow of energy from the new moon starts with the challenging red aspect to Sedna. The aim is to get to the harmonious blue trine between Saturn and Uranus. The unstable green aspects help you get from point A to point B, from the tense and highly strung red aspect to the relaxed and harmonious blue aspect.

New Moon Opposite Sedna

Minor planet Sedna was only discovered in 2003. It has an exceptionally long and elongated orbital period of 11,400 years. Sedna is nearing its closest approach to Earth (perihelion) in mid 2076. The last time Sedna was this close to earth was in 9400 BC, coinciding with a sharp rise in temperature over 50 years. [1] This led to inundation of low-lying areas of our planet – sound familiar?

I believe Sedna is linked to climate change – hotter temperatures, rising sea levels, more extreme weather events and mass extinction of species. It happened at the start of the Preboreal Period 11,400 years ago and it is happening again now.

New Moon opposite Sedna should give some perspective on how climate change is beginning to impact your life. It means you cannot ignore the effects of climate change anymore because it’s starting to cause problems that affect your way of life, your finances, your future, and especially your children. I expect the rise in temperature and sea levels to continue over the next 60 years until Sedna reaches its perihelion.

New moon November 2017 opposite Sedna should also highlight the widely opposing opinions about climate change. This ranges from greenies who want to ban coal, to skeptics who deny climate change is real. The opposition aspect forces you to acknowledge the polarities, or opposites in your life.

Do your actions, your goals and your plans for the future take into account hotter weather, superstorms, and food shortages? You may believe climate change is real but what are you doing about it? How are these rapid changes in your environment affecting your physical and mental health, or the growth and development of your children?

Quincunx Adjustments

New Moon quincunx Uranus and to a lesser extent, new moon semisextile Saturn, give some answers to these questions. They can help you move from the tense fear and anxiety of the opposition to the reassuring harmony of the trine.

New moon quincunx Uranus can make it hard to settle and relax as your intuition senses change or some drama on the way. A build up of energy in your system can feel exciting but also a little scary. Pressure to change can come from someone or something with power over you. An unexpected event, accident or change may force you to change your routine, behavior or plans.

It is important to be flexible and adapt to changing conditions. If you resist change and become arrogant or disruptive you will suffer losses or miss out on important opportunities. An adjustment is needed whether you are forced to make changes or you find a different way forward yourself. Doing something a slightly different way could make all the difference, making life easier for yourself and those around you.

Saturn Trine Uranus November 2017

Saturn trine Uranus made it last exact aspect one week before the new moon on November 11. The November 18 new moon is the last activation of this year-long major aspect for the next thirty years. It seems to be significant that this harmonious blend of change and stability is directly related the Sedna and climate change. This aspect means you can experiment with new ideas and lifestyles without too much disruption.

You can incorporate positive change in your life while still working within the rules and regulations of society. You can experiment with traditional ways of doing things without being rebellious. This means the changes you make will be accepted and earn you respect. You can find practical ways to increase productivity and live more efficiently, saving time, energy and money. Saturn rules discipline and restriction while Uranus rules electricity and innovation. This is an energy-saving aspect.

New moon November 2017 will give you the opportunity to act responsibility and show your leadership qualities. Adapting to serious changes means initiating changes at home and in your workplace. This aspect is good for working with groups and bringing together people from a variety of background and skills. New technologies and innovations will be available to help you adapt. You can use the internet to connect to like-minded people, to learn, to share information and eventually to teach and guide others.

New Moon November 2017 Summary

The November 18 new moon will make you more aware of climate change because of its near exact opposition to the planet Sedna. I make this assumption because the last time Sedna was this close to Earth 11,400 years ago, there was a sharp rise in temperature over 50 years. Rapid changes in the environment are threatening your way of life and now is the time to do something about it.

By following your intuition and taking the lead, you will find practical ways to save time, energy and money. You may decide to have quicker showers or you might decide to buy an electric car. Every bit helps and new moon November 2017 is a good time to start. Saturn trine Uranus means you will cope very well in a calm and patient way. You can be a steady hand in this time of change and bring order out of chaos.

  1. Thanks Jamie! This new moon conjuncts my Jupiter and MC at 26 degrees Scorpio, and with the wide orb my Neptune at 0 degrees Sagittarius. It’s kind of activating Yod pattern with Transit Uranus and natal Pluto at 27 degrees Virgo. Wonder what that will bring…

  2. Hi Jamie. At 26 deg Taurus, Sedna is on or near Algol. This does tie in with what you are saying. I see Algol as the mass-victim star. Passages across it have presaged severe hardship to multitudes of people. The theme this time is global warming climate change.

  3. There will be no global warming. The only climate change will be global cooling, and it has nothing to do with CO2 or human activities.

    Guess what? The earths climate changes periodically, folks. That would happen whether we were here or not. To believe otherwise is to believe that man effects the Sun.

    Anthropomorphic climate change is a farce.

    • what a beautiful denial 🙂 Very useful for those who wish to continue to destroy the planet…perrrrrrrrfect !

    • You are correct, especially with the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn coming up in January 2020. Three Capricorn stelliums will form around that conjunction during the winter of 2019-20, to include all the inner planets plus Jupiter. It will be a winter for the record books, as will every winter up to then (including this coming one) and many after.

      That much planetary weight in Capricorn = ground frozen solid. We may have tundra in unexpected places.

      It always amazes me to see astrologers actually believing in anthropogenic climate change. Astrologers hold the key to understanding mysteries like how Earth’s climate works, yet many insist on forcing astrology to fit a totalitarian political agenda.

      Well, it doesn’t work like that, as the next few winters will tell. We will witness the complete collapse of the big global warming lie, thank God.

  4. This article is great, lots of points to consider are brought up, including the interesting information on Sedna, which is mostly unfamiliar to a lot of us. But one critical item has been left out, and that is, Sedna is almost exactly conjunct Algol, and the New Moon degree of 27 Scorpio is just about exactly opposite it! Poor Princess Diana had Algol conjunct her natal Venus, we all know what happened there. All the best to everyone, we all have that degree somewhere in our charts. Blessings to this site for sharing the great interpretations!

      • Your bio and history sounds like you’ve managed to hang with something you love and your forum here is really great. Props to you for hanging in there.

        On Sedna, Kim Falconer stated the first sighting was November 14, 2003, 06:32 AM UT at Palomar Mountain, California, and it was named for the Inuit goddess Sedna who resides in the icy depths of Adlivun, the Arctic underworld beneath the sea. There she rules all marine life, and controls the fate of humans by releasing her bounty to respectful hunters and withholding it from the careless. Disregard for the sacredness of life is the worst offence. When this happens, her long hair tangles with filth and requires a shaman’s journey to appease her rage. Dr. Kathleen Jenks says about Sedna. “When victimization moves to the goddess-level as it does with Sedna, (it) signals us that there’s an extra depth of compassion for the abused. It also tells us that this goddess-archetype has the wherewithal to make a difference and empower that person whose (planets) are resonating with Sedna’s sphere of power. Sedna may come to represent an extreme terrain of the unconscious, one where issues of power, authority and respect for life do not separate from a respect for oneself.

        The Inuit are animistic, seeing divinity in all things. Sedna may ask us to account for previously unconsidered forms of negligence towards ourselves and our living planet. Unappeasable by force, bribe or cajole, Sedna is softened only by a shaman’s song of life. And taking up to 12,000 years to circle our Sun, she’ll move slowly through the heavens, taking about one hundred years to travel thirty degrees of a sign. This is interesting and she is important.

        Astrology Weekly has a link where you can enter your birthday and look it up in your natal chart:

        Thank you, Jamie, wonderful holidays to all – and remember, the Spirit of Christmas is in all places, at all times…

  5. It wil be trine with my sun 28 in pisces. Sun rules my first house. What to expect Jamie?:)

  6. This will clearly be an important New Moon for me. My Vertex (turning point) is at 25Sco41 conjunct the New Moon at 26Sco19. My Chiron is at 18Aqu37 conjunct the South Node at 18Aqu58. My Jupiter is at 1Sco16 conjunct Vesta at 0Sco56. My Ascendant is at 8Can15 trine Jupiter at 8Sco20. I care very much about this planet we live on and can feel an intense energy building to remove mind-control programs that have kept me unaware of the many different agendas of alien beings who are involved with this transition Earth is now making.

    • On the New Moon, transiting Ixion will be at 24Sag52 square transiting Chiron at 24Pis27Rx. Ixion bears watching. His mythology reveals him to be the father of inter-dimentional hybrid species. In my natal chart, I have Ixion at 22Lib22 conjunct my North Node at 22Lib32 in my 5th House of children. I am an abductee whose genetic material has been used to breed many, many hybrid children. This is not a good time to be ignoring Ixion.

      • “We need a new paradigm with which to understand the visitor phenomenon. We already know that our encounters with them break the rules of third-dimentional thought, perception, and reality. We must then look beyond what we know to be true. We must stretch the limits of our imagination in order to break through the walls that divide our reality from theirs.” –from the book Visitors From Within, by Lyssa Royal and Keith Priest

          • I have Vesta at 23 Cancer square my nodes–a skipped step. Cancer is tremendously important in my chart, with the Sun and Moon in the 4th and Cancer Rising. Cancer–my emotional history–is what I’ve come here to master. The resolution of my skipped step points back to Lilith at 22 Aries conjunct my South Node–the rejection of female equality at a sexual level.

            This morning (today is the New Moon) my inner guidance directed me to a note I have saved in my notebook for many years. It’s about Vesta in the 1st House. I was directed to cut out a section of the note, ponder it for a minute and then tear it up! This is the section I cut out and tore up: “You are so focused on ‘finding yourself,’ or on your personal goals, that you may choose to forgo long-term relationships of an intimate nature.”

            I sure was surprised! It is true. By necessity, I have forgone long-term relationships ever since my separation from my husband way back in 1993. I have been focused on the confusing twists and turns of my inner journey.

            So now what? My North Node is in Libra, after all.

            • I live in the US. It’s the 18th here. Jamie lives on the other side of the world.

  7. The truth hurts, but someone must say it: climate change is actually geoengineering / chemtrailing. Instead of denying this, a fact brought by our global militaries since before WW2, the masses need to do the research and stop being afraid of seeming a conspiracy theorist. #HAARP #ionosphericHeaters #weatherAsAForceMultiplier

  8. Too subjective for me. The astrologer “believes” Sedna has something to do with climate change. This thinking is too bogged down in current events. The last time Sedna was in its current position, man was first domesticating animals. What’s going on now is the technological equivalent of that event. Man domesticating machines, or maybe machines domesticating man!

    • Interesting observation since in the myth of Sedna she controls the animals of the sea. Domestication would make sense.

  9. Hi Jamie just got to say thank you! It’s been a tough few years (Virgo Asc 1st decan + Sun Pluto conjunct Virgo 3rd decan) Saturn square my everything and rolling over and over my natal Mars in Sag ouch)

    Just read the scopes for 2018 and WOOT! Finally some light! Some air! Some freaking joy!
