Here’s the chart for the Scorpio New Moon:
New Moon in Scorpio
November 11, 2015
The sign of Scorpio is associated with sex, death, and rebirth. The house that Scorpio occupies in the natal chart shows an area of life where one may be obsessive, have secrets, feel jealousy, and battle for control. It also shows the area where one can replenish their energy, tune into to hidden currents of meaning, be especially resourceful, passionate, private, and powerful. Scorpio is a water sign with a focus on introspection, intensity and intimacy. Ruled by Mars & Pluto, there is an emphasis on investigation, analysis, recycling, and transformation. Issues involving shared resources, taxes, insurance, banking, credit, inheritances, trust, revenge, research, and magic become accentuated during the Scorpio cycle.
There is a lot of interest in the 11-11 aspect of this New Moon. Here’s an informative article by Kelli Fox.

Our advice for this cycle:
Use the potent energy available at the beginning of this cycle to advance your goals by taking care of unfinished business. Engaging in a productive activity that brings beauty to your environment will prove gratifying and provide a sense of stability in moments of confusion or anxiety. Stay flexible and ready to adjust to situations that impinge on the expression of your individuality, especially as it gets closer to the end of the month.
