New Moon phase (yes, still!) – Moon in Scorpio: A lot of people wonder how we can still be in the New Moon phase when the New Moon was on October 8. That’s because the Moon basically stays in a phase for up to 45 degrees – so for example, there are 30 degrees in the signs, so if a New Moon takes place at (for argument’s sake) 0 Aries, then the Moon will still be in the New Moon phase for the WHOLE times it’s in Aries (that month) because that’s 30 degrees and then for the first 15 degrees of the next sign, Taurus, the Moon will also still be in New Moon phase. Confused? Don’t worry! You don’t need to know this unless you want to learn astrology. But if you would like to know more, I have a book and a course for learning astrology!

So what about today? Tread carefully with anyone known to have a short fuse or a mean streak. And if you know you have a bit of a nasty sting in your own tail, do your meditations today. It’s a day when minor upsets and petty jealousies can crop up to remind us we’re humans on the evolutionary trail. The good news about

Scorpio is that it’s a transformational energy, so used correctly, a Scorpio Moon Day can actually have a major impact, be it material or physical or psychological.

◗ Good for… Investigating a mystery, getting to the bottom of something, being a tad obsessive about someone you adore.

◗ Not so good for… Being way too obsessive, developing bad habits or snooping.

◗ Do… Lighten up.
