Last month’s energies were pretty intense, and November 2023 promises to start off the same way with a new moon in Scorpio on the 13th. However, the full moon in Gemini on the 27th just might bring some relief, especially as you use these crystals and affirmations to support you in the process. Read on to see how November, 2023 might shake out for you.
November 2023 New Moon Insights
November 13th’s new moon in Scorpio brings a powerful energy of releasing, healing, and getting in touch with our “shadow” side. Although Scorpio often gets a bad wrap, it’s really an energy of transformation. It’s like a giant broom attempting to sweep out the dark corners for greater healing. Where are you being called to heal and change?
This crucial time of reflection and intuition can be wonderful for setting intentions. You might be noticing issues of the past resurfacing…you might even feel called to speak your truth around these things. Face any fears you may have about your goals, dreams, visions, or life purposes and resolve to take actions. The action might even just be to re-set and shift your focus; that is okay if that’s all you need to do for now. Take some time to rest and recharge and breathe into the awareness of what you can adjust. Accept anything you can’t change, and be prepared to let it fall out of your life if it’s ready to let go.
You might be feeling extra sensitive at the moment (or notice others around you feeling this way). This is just the moon’s way of allowing the “dark” parts of ourselves to have their day in the sun, so to speak. Be gentle and resolve to take that next step you know you need to take!
November 2023 New Moon Crystal
Tourmalinated quartz is a powerfully protective stone against negative energies and situations. It also balances the yin and yang.
Wear some tourmalinated quartz around the new moon for added defense against icky energies and people. You might feel more grounded and calm (and have a clearer aura) when you’ve got some tourmalinated quartz around.

November 2023 Full Moon Insights
November 27th brings a full moon in Gemini, the sign of communication and connection. It’s an airy-fairy, emotional energy that can bring about new relationships and opportunities–it can also bring up unnecessary drama. Note where you might be seeing patterns in this part of your life and release anything that no longer supports your goals and dreams for yourself.
Gemini is intellectual, fun-loving, and sometimes sassy. If people around you are feeling spastic and spacey (or if you are feeling this way), take time out to reflect on how you can heal around communication and boundary setting. Speaking and living your truth right now is especially important, but you might not need to tell everyone the truth all the time. Decide whether saying it to their face or journaling would be more appropriate. If you need some self-care at the moment, journaling, art, music, theater, or other forms of creative expression might be especially indicated right now. This can be a contradictory energy, as well, so any seeming paradoxes in your life are worth making note of.
On the other hand, if you’re manifesting lots of collaborative opportunities right now, go for it! The full moon in Gemini is a great time to allow some of your hard-earned efforts to come to fruition. It’s a good sign for the throat chakra, so however you can express yourself is a great area to focus on at the moment.

Sodalite is a wonderful stone for expressing yourself and living your truth. It’s a great stone to have in your pocket while giving a presentation, as it can really soothe public speaking anxiety! It’s also a great support if you have fears around confidently being yourself.
Carry or wear a sodalite during the full moon in Gemini to help clear and calm any fears around self-expression.
