New Moon ~ Solar Eclipse in Scorpio!
Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Scorpio, October 23rd (2:57pm PST)
Hello Scorpio! If you’re feeling a bit…intense, it’s likely because of the Scorpio New Moon, combined with the Solar Eclipse today! When the moon is the sign of Scorpio, emotions and sensitivities run high, and there is an intensity around one’s deepest passions and desires. In the best sense, Scorpio is the sign of transformation, and combined with the New Moon/Solar Eclipse energies, this is an excellent time to consider making changes that will move your life forward. This may require letting go of the past, and old relationships that no longer serve you.
Watch out for the Scorpion’s sting! This is a time to be aware of potential power struggles and jealous tendencies. This is a moment to forgive and forget! Take the high road, whenever possible. Know that it will serve you in the bigger picture.
Eclipses are powerful, intense and life changing. In esoteric astrology we define them as Karmic Movements, offering the opportunity to release old situations and conditioning. Solar Eclipses greatly influence the universal landscape, affecting global and collective dynasties. They often signal times of great change, especially politically, among countries, sovereignties and governments. Unfortunately we can expect to see more planetary upheaval in these arenas during this time.
Although intense, this period offers the opportunity for transformation. Sometimes we have to go to extremes to get there! Currently we are a planet of polarities and paradoxes—dark/light, good/bad, joy/sorrow and ultimately we’re looking for some balance, some middle ground. At the end of the day, it’s all about being present to each and every moment, and being willing to embrace the winds of change.
Again, on a personal level, this Solar Eclipse/New Moon offers a moment to do some soul searching, find what’s working, what’s not, put the past behind you and embrace new beginnings!
May the force be with you. And Joyful Transformation!
