You can’t help but raise is­sues that ev­ery­one else would rather avoid to­day. You’re not look­ing to stir up trou­ble, but talk­ing about a sen­si­tive sub­ject might prompt others to dis­credit you by crit­i­ciz­ing your opin­ions. Although you don’t want to waste en­ergy de­fend­ing your phi­los­o­phy, it may be nec­es­sary in order to defuse the neg­a­tiv­ity be­fore it takes hold. Thank­fully, the per­cep­tive Scor­pio New Moon falls in your 8th House of Me­ta­mor­pho­sis, in­spir­ing you to see the con­ver­sa­tion through to a suc­cess­ful con­clu­sion.

Ig­nor­ing a friend or lover’s in­ci­sive feed­back is not a wise tac­tic while the Scor­pio New Moon rat­tles your 7th House of Sig­nif­i­cant Others. You might not want to lis­ten to what’s be­ing said, but tak­ing a mes­sage to heart can be a sig­nif­i­cant cat­a­lyst for per­sonal growth. There’s no need to nod your head in agree­ment; how­ever, se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing some­one’s less-than-pleas­ant as­sess­ment now is grist for your mill. No mat­ter how use­ful the new in­for­ma­tion is to your trans­for­ma­tion, you’ll be a stronger per­son for go­ing through the process.

Mak­ing sim­ple mod­i­fi­ca­tions to your daily rou­tine may be the smartest thing you can do to­day, as long as you choose ones that don’t turn your life up­side down. For­tu­nately, a sub­tle ad­just­ment can set a se­ries of pro­found con­se­quences into mo­tion when the Scor­pio New Moon shakes up your 6th House of Self-Im­prove­ment. The po­ten­tial for change is likely, so pick your di­rec­tion wisely. Just re­mem­ber that be­ing too insistent could over­whelm others, caus­ing your plans to back­fire. Act­ing with gen­tle per­sis­tence is much more ef­fec­tive now than mak­ing one dra­matic ges­ture.

You might be­lieve your world has come to a stand­still, but in truth it has not. To the con­trary, you’re right on the verge of some­thing big. Per­haps you re­cently thought about start­ing a cre­ative project or mak­ing a move on the ro­man­tic front. In ei­ther case, the evoca­tive Scor­pio New Moon re­turns to fire up your 5th House of Self-Ex­pres­sion, in­ten­si­fy­ing the emo­tional process. But noth­ing will hap­pen overnight, so be pa­tient. It’s al­ways dark­est just be­fore the dawn.

Your feelings could be at odds with your ac­tions to­day. You might choose to with­hold your de­sires and just smile your way through the day, but you won’t likely get away with it. Ac­knowl­edge your sub­jec­tiv­ity while the pas­sion­ate Scor­pio New Moon spot­lights your 4th House of Se­cu­rity. Thank­fully, you can change the rules of the game; in­stead of choos­ing emo­tions or logic now, seek a po­si­tion that hon­ors both realms. Main­tain a close con­nec­tion with your heart while lis­ten­ing to the ad­vice of­fered by your ra­tio­nal mind.

Virgo (Au­gust 23-Septem­ber 22)

There may not be a bet­ter time to take ini­tia­tive on an im­por­tant project. Put your plans into ac­tion while the Scor­pio New Moon en­er­gizes your 3rd House of Im­me­di­ate En­vi­ron­ment. Use this cre­ative lu­nar power to get your ideas out into the open, whether ver­bally or writ­ten. Nev­er­the­less, it might be nearly im­pos­si­ble to fol­low through on ev­ery­thing you start to­day. Ride the plan­e­tary waves of change by re­ly­ing on your sense of hu­mor to keep ev­ery­one laugh­ing, since the cur­rent in­ten­sity

won’t last very long.
