New Moon 7 November 2018 – Say Sorry and Move On

New Moon November 2018 AstrologyThe New Moon on Wednesday November 7, 2018 at 15 Scorpio makes helpful aspects to Neptune and Pluto. The New Moon November 2018 astrology points to a spiritual transformation through empathy and forgiveness. This is a good new moon to say sorry for past mistakes so you can follow your dreams free of guilt or shame.

The November 2018 new moon activates a challenging fixed star which brings the potential for loss, disappointment and wrongful accusation. Other more positive new moon aspects make it easy to recover from any setback. They are also excellent for fixing relationship problems or finding your ideal partner, your dream lover.

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. So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, 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 7 new moon will last four weeks up to the December 7 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 7 to the November 23 Full Moon.

The November 7 new moon at 15°11′ Scorpio is influenced by helpful aspect to Neptune and Pluto. There are some other strong aspects worth considering. There is also a major fixed star at 15°20′ Scorpio Sign which is actually the brightest star in Libra Constellation. Precession of the Equinoxes explains why the Sun Signs no longer align with the Constellations from which they were named.

The Claws of the Scorpion

Fixed star Zubenelgenubi at 15°20′ Scorpio Sign is almost exact in longitude to the new moon. The image below shows it also sits right on the ecliptic so it has a strong impact on this new moon. Alpha Librae represents the Southern Scale of the Balance, Libra Constellation. But the traditional name Zubenelgenubi is Arabic ّfor Southern Claw. This is because it was named before Libra was recognized as a constellation distinct from Scorpius.

Symbolically called the Insufficient Price, Zubeneschamali represents a karmic debt to be repaid. With a new moon it can bring wrongful accusation, disappointment, anxiety, disgrace, ruin and illness to self and family. There may also be trouble through the opposite sex, disfavor of superiors, and loss in business and through fire or speculation. [1]

This star has much to do with justice. Well aspected it gives courage to fight for right and generosity to defeated opponents. Eric Morse says “its appearance in better aspect is often just the right moment to repair a relationship and to reconsider an earlier harsh judgment.” [2]

  1. Dear Jamie, great posts as always! I enjoy reading them. I have the fixed star Zubeneschmali conjunct my natal venus in scorpio within the orb of 2°. Might this affect me in any way? Recently I got fired from work upon returning from my maternity leave…I am in search of a new job…does this new moon have any impact at all?
    Thank you, and keep up the good work, Astrologyking!

    • Hi Majankas. Venus with Zubenelgenubi is supposed to be bad for marriage but that might depend on other aspects to your Venus. Also, transiting Neptune is trine your Venus which is a good indicator of romance.

      • Thank you very much, Jamie! I was hoping the new moon would signify new beginnings in terms of finding a new job, but apparently, I am going to be lucky in love 😁 I’ll keep following your awesome posts!

  2. Hello Jamie, I hope that you are keeping well. Any thoughts on the Nodes in Cancer square to RX Uranus Aries on the anaretic degree please. If the right side don’t get you the left side will.!

  3. After the fixed star on October 30th you can only wish for better. With a New Moon in Scorpio 11, October Scorpions should wake up! It’s your time. Numerology number 3 is important and works well with 11. It is a great time to make a wish and fixate your energy on accomplishing your wishes and aspirations.

  4. Falls within a minute of arc to my Neptune. Any thoughts on 15° being titled “The eagle point of regeneration?”

    • Hi James. Do you mean 15° Scorpio is “The eagle point of regeneration”, or is it 15° of all Signs. I have not heard of that before. Neptune with Zubenelgenubi sounds a bit sinister according to Robson but you share that with some celebrities who don’t seem to fit that interpretation so well, maybe with the exception of Johnny Depp and and Gibbons Twins. See Sun conjunct Neptune transit because that also applies to a New Moon

  5. 15°of Scorpio called “eagle point of regeneration.” Matches with image of the Phoenix death and rebirth. I’ve not found anything specific from net searches yet. I personally have had from a young age hope of science advancements delivering solutions for aging and resultant death, and interest in mythological stories about the subject, so I lean towards conjecture that perhaps this is connected to the placement of Neptune conjunct this point in my natal chart. Thanks!

  6. I hope this is not too late. November 17 my son died at 33 from a seizure. I have heard of many deaths, personal and public, for the last half of 11-2018. Was there some cosmic door or alignment that occurred? His DOB was 3-15-1985 7:50 am PCT and approx DOB is 11-17 / 18 at midnight CT

    • Oh I am so sorry Lee. Your son did have transiting Pluto on his Moon, transiting Uranus on his Mars, and transiting Moon on his Sun.

  7. Where’s the other way around picture? Moon represents a woman. Scorpio belongs to the passive, female principle, too. Hellooooo?
