The Scorpio new moon on November 4, 2021 is opposite Uranus. So the spiritual meaning of the new moon November 2021 astrology relates to a struggle for independence that may be associated with the exploration and expression your unique individuality and personality.
The November 2021 new moon also brings the potential for disorder with unexpected and sudden changes that are difficult to adjust to. But keeping an open mind can present unique opportunities to find a better way forward through times of upheaval and chaos.
New Moon November 2021 Astrology
The new moon on November 4, at 12°40′ Scorpio, is opposite Uranus. As the chart below shows, this challenging aspect is extremely powerful with an orb of just 0°07′. The other but less important aspect in the new moon horoscope is Mercury sextile Venus. Its smooth and harmonious influence may sublimate to some extent, the abrupt and chaotic nature of the new moon opposite Uranus.
A fortunate fixed star only 0°05′ from the new moon is of the nature of Venus and Mercury. So it will have a similar influence to Mercury sextile Venus in helping to subdue the erratic and impulsive energy of Uranus.
New Moon Meaning
Sun conjunct Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.
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.
Lots of Change
New Moon opposite Uranus gives an urge to try new and exciting ways to live life to the fullest. You seek the freedom to do things your own way and will most likely resist being told what to do. A struggle for independence can be related to a struggle to explore and express your unique individuality and personality.
You may anticipate something new on the horizon or feel nervous. Sudden changes and unexpected encounters and events are possible that leave you feeling unsettled and anxious. Learning to adapt to change will help you feel less disconnected. By keeping an open mind, exciting opportunities may arise from any changes that offer a better way forward.
It is better that you don’t resist the urge for the new and unusual, or rebel and changing conditions. Otherwise, this electric and spontaneous energy may escape in a destructive way such as a minor accident. Odd behavior or a radical about-face in someone close to you may cause anxiety too. Arguments or separation may result from impatience or unwillingness to adapt.
A Little Harmony
Mercury sextile Venus brings encourage peace and harmony while reducing stress. A more settled frame of mind and good communication skills makes it easier to deal with any sudden change or unexpected events caused by the new moon opposite Uranus.
Uranus can also make people distant and impulsive which can lead to sudden breakups. But Mercury sextile Venus love, friendship, cooperation, and diplomacy help you bring people together, find peaceful settlements to disputes, and break down any barriers to progress. A good business sense also helps you find opportunities for success.
The Fixed Stars
New Moon November 2021 is in the Sign of Scorpio. But as the star map below shows, it is actually at the border of Constellation Virgo and Libra. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago.

Fixed star Alphecca is of the nature of Venus and Mercury. It gives honor, dignity and poetical and artistic ability.

New Moon November 2021 Astrology Summary
The November 4 new moon opposite Uranus (0°07′) brings sudden changes and unexpected encounters and events that can leave you feeling unsettled and anxious. This is not a new feeling because change has been the major theme of the new moons over the last 3 months:
- The August 8 new moon was square Uranus (1°29′)
- The September 6 new moon was trine Uranus (0°01′)
- The October 6 new moon was quincunx Uranus (0°30′)
In fact, difficult change has been a major theme all year because of Saturn square Uranus. This is the major planetary aspect of 2021 and the final square is on December 24.
Learning to adapt to change will help you feel less disconnected. Keeping an open mind will, exciting opportunities may arise from any changes that offer a better way forward. This is not the time to be rebelling, forcing through unpopular changes, or resisting change.
However, there will still most likely be disorder, riots and revolutions. There may also be unexpected changes in the Coronviris pandemic and government restrictions, with the associated anti-vaxxer protests. But there would not be much sympathy for their cause.
This will be a particularly difficult moon phase for minorities, eccentrics, outcasts and misfits. The best option is to keep a low profile and try to go with the flow for the time being. All those things ruled by Uranus face too much opposition with the immense power of the Sun and Moon combined; the majority, governments, and prevailing public opinion.
New moons usually last for 4 weeks. But the influence of the November 4 new moon only lasts for 2 weeks up to the November 19 lunar eclipse, with this being the final new moon in an eclipse phase that began in May 2021. And because of this, it is a good idea to look back at the previous eclipses and see how your long term plans are working out:
- The May 26 lunar eclipse brought confusion, deception, and vulnerability. It caused a test of faith due to greed, excess and immorality. Protect yourself and the most vulnerable people you care about.
- The June 10 solar eclipse brought self-confidence and courage, but also mental confusion, deceptive communications, and a tendency toward recklessness, belligerence, and treachery. Caution and honesty are required.
