Lunar Influences

New Moon

November 8 @ 3:01AM AEDT

Say to hello to the dark side for this New Moon in Scorpio. Mars, the ruling planet of the very passionate Scorpio, inspires us to reach the depths of our souls and uncover any hidden thoughts, emotions and trauma in order to go through a process of death and rebirthing. Don’t be surprised if anything that has been previously forgotten or suppressed, is now brought to the surface. 

It’s a time of liberation, freedom and healing, but you may also experience a short transitional time of uncomfortable feelings due to these triggering influences.

It’s also a very sensual time where you’ll likely crave meaningful, emotional conversations and interactions.

Full Moon 

November 23 @ 4:39PM AEDT

Full Moon in Gemini might trigger your emotions as you are likely to feel more sensitive to outside influences. It’s wise to think before you speak, and express your feelings in a calm manner to help avoid misunderstandings. Possibly you are the one initiating conflict because you want clarity in a certain situation. It’s give and take - so take care of yourself as well as listen to others.
 Aside from potential communication errors, use this phase to help you find happiness and content in the simple things in life, and maybe even a small gesture of kindness for someone else.

Keywords: Compassion. Truth. Patience. Emotional Insight.

Reading about your moon sign can at times be far more insightful than your sun sign, especially when we are trying to harness the potential and energy of each day. This is because the moon travels through each astrological sign over a two-two and a half day period - much faster than the other planets which range from months to years. The moon travels through all of the twelve astro signs within a one month period as it goes through its phases from new to full and back to new again. So no matter what your sun sign is, all of us experience the powerful rhythms of dear Luna on a regular basis.

Many people find that using their moon sign as a guide in their daily life provides much more insight than they expected. Your moon sign represents your emotions, subconscious and intuition. These are powerful aspects to tap into to make the most of our daily activities. However it's also useful to also read your sun and rising/ascendant signs to get a full view of how the new moon is affecting you personally so make sure you read all 3 here!

We all need that thing that makes us feel like we’re at home. Maybe it’s a place, certain people or a particular food or memory. If you have been feeling like you don’t belong, find your happy place - and embrace the warmth of being home.


Have you lost your voice? Or maybe even feeling like you aren't being heard? Because now is the time to speak up and share what’s on your mind and weighing you down. Keep yourself grounded and centred as well. It’s likely to be a busy time for you!


Focussing on your financial goals and home stability is of the upmost importance. Maybe you need to spend some time reflecting on your physical and financial assets, and using this time to reevaluate and maybe even a fresh start towards budgeting and savings.
