SCORPIO NEW MOON PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE
OCTOBER 25 2022 6:49 AM EST 2 degrees 0 minutes SCORPIO
Not only do we have an eclipse, we have an eclipse with Venus exactly conjunct the Sun and Moon. A power team of personal planets. The south node at 13 degrees of Scorpio can’t be ignored, here, either, even if it is a wide orb.
Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto, is at 26 degrees Capricorn making a Sextile to retrograde Neptune in Pisces.
Where have we lost ourselves in our power in the past?
Where have we lost our power in the depths and we need to dive down into the memory, the subconscious, the boxes in the attic to bring it up to be remembered, seen, and reassimilated.
We can start with the Sun, Moon, and Venus conjunction early degrees of Scorpio.
How is our inner life syncing up with the life we are actually living?
How is the emotional body syncing up with our value system and experience of self care?
Where can we release habits, thoughts, routines, relationships and patterns that no longer serve us?
Scorpio looks at transformation and the two desires: to both individuate and to return to Source and to one again become part of the whole.
Some will say we took human form to experience the Soul as a Self, separate from the Divine from which we sprang.
There is a fear of moving further away from the comfort and safety of the true Home and there is fear of not having that individuated human experience we signed up for.
The key can be in the natural polarity to Taurus. If we start with the Venus. Venus is a personal planet. It helps us to love the self we came here to experience. If we start with the basics - feeding, clothing, and housing ourselves with care – the adventure of individuation can be off on a firm footing. If we get enough sleep and speak to ourselves in a kind and nurturing voice, we are encouraged and emboldened.
If we remember separation from Source is, in fact, an illusion, the adventure is mor of a game than a forced march.
If we are reminded, as I am doing right now, that we carry our piece of Source with us in the form of our Higher Self, then we are never truly on this journey alone. If we continue to learn to communicate with- and be informed by- our own Higher Self, the we get to experience Union and the individual experience AT THE SAME TIME!
When we forget all of that, we can go back to basics: did I eat a nourishing meal? Am I dressed comfortably for the task at hand? Did I sleep?
Now back over to Pluto-ruled Scorpio. Scorpio, is, traditionally in charge of shared resources. It is powerful in that it knows how to use those resources. Where Taurus/Venus wants to do it by itself – which can, at times, lead to doing it the hard way – Scorpio goes right to the tools at hand. It will watch a YouTube video et Voila! It knows how to sew on a button, makes pancakes or change the oil in a car. Scorpio knows where to go and who to ask for help. Scorpio knows the wide world out there has the information and assistance it needs. And it is willing to help.
Can we enjoy both? Can we take advantage of the Taurean/Venusian desire to internalize an authentic and useful value system the results in true love and care for the Self?
Can we employ the Plutonian/Scorpionic sharing of resources and the individual and collective empowerment and transformation that is a result?
Then we are truly preparing the way for Pluto’s entry in March of next year into Aquarius.
The natural square that Taurus and Scorpio make to Leo and Aquarius gives an internal impulse, for us all at this new Moon and Eclipse- to engage with our own heart and it’s immense power- if Leo. It also gives an internal impulse to engage with and fire up the genius of the Higher Mind- the collective drive toward service and the Common Good of Uranus- ruled Aquarius.
The New Moon is widely opposing Uranus and the North Node in Taurus highlighting the urge to align personal sense of value and survival itself with the good of the whole.
What a time to be alive!!! I kid you not. We are all here because we are needed. We are all here because we are part of the individual and collective transformation at hand.
What to do? How to engage?
First love and live for the Self. At a new Moon we do a big exhale and let go. Purify the body and mind in any way that suits you- Epsom salts, primal scream, running around, singing the heart out. Put the hands on the Heart every day and say, “Please lead the way.”
Not a metaphor here. Literally put the human hands on the human heart beating in the chest and say “I’m with you. Please let me hear and follow the love and power beating within me.”
Sit for a bit with the beating of that heart and remember we are all from that same Impulse. That same Source.
The voices are many – every voice giving its point of view. Rise up like the Eagle of Scorpio and see all of the living experience from a distance. It is easier to send love to the whole soup of existence when we can’t differentiate the lovely soft potato from the still crunchy and smelly turnip. We can love the whole stew from a distance.
Let the Universe sort them all out. If we can send good heartedness, good will and kind thoughts and vibrations to the whole scene unfurling below, that is a lot. Probably more than we can possibly imagine. Love the whole soup.
It would be powerful to give this a try daily for the next two weeks leading up to the Taurus Full Moon Eclipse on November 8.
Then having done our bit, we can get up about the business of the day knowing we attuned to our own heart, we sent good vibes to the whole of the earthly experience forward and backward in time, and we will be guided by the wisdom of our heart which shared the beat in time with Source energy.
How about them apples?
Each heart is like an apple going into a different dish serving a different purpose. Is it pie or applesauce or sliced on a cheddar sandwich.
It’s all good. To each it’s own. Each one serves the individual, and all joined together, we contribute to the whole.
The eclipse sets a marker for the next since months. It is a powerful new beginning when it is on the Scorpio/Taurus axis. Fixed signs, when they screw up the courage, are unstoppable. There are amazing and powerful examples of human courage in the world right now.
Send love. Encourage and enjoy the Self. Encourage and enjoy others.
We are all really one anyway
It will all be over soon enough. So we might as well let go, throw our arms in the air and scream at the sheer thrill of the ride.
Lots of love and see you at the Full Moon in Taurus eclipse on 8 November.
