New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio ~ October 25, 2022
3:49am PT / 6:49am ET
Theme: Embracing Transformation
By Andrea Dupuis
Scorpio is a water sign, yin in nature, yet more like big choppy waves than a gentle smooth lake. We may feel ourselves swimming in some deep or more challenging waters emotionally this week.
Scorpio rules the 8th house – the house of death and birth, the occult, and big transformation. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself in a big life transformation this week.
Scorpio is a sign of big emotions – it’s ruled by Pluto so these emotions are amplified. It’s co-ruled by Mars so there’s a tendency during this season to feel restless, to feel agitated by these emotions and the world around us.
With an eclipse in Scorpio we are being asked to dip into the underworld – this can mean we may experience more intense emotions such as sadness and moodiness. This will be most prominent for Scorpio, Cancer and Leo Sun Moon or Rising.
This Eclipse is with Venus – Sun, Moon, Ketu and Venus all in Scorpio. Scorpio energy is very high right now. Our psychic abilities may be enhanced.
The highest exemplification of Scorpio is as the grand alchemist – Scorpio is never afraid to dive deep into the depths and turn the pain into goodness.
They dive into the depths and come out transformed, new. This process of death and rebirth can occur this week.
New Moon Contemplations
What needs to die in your life? It can be patterns, relationships, old ways of being
What’s ready to be birthed? What are you clinging to?
Where are you not willing to make room for the new?
The deeper we can go into ourselves, the lighter we will come out.
This week: rest, relax, go easy. Be careful around the eclipses, pay close attention to your thoughts. In ancient astrology they warned to watch your thoughts during eclipse time as they could stick long term. It’s not a time to take big risks. It’s a deeply spiritual time to contemplate your life, journal, pull cards, be in ceremony, sleep…
Mediate, go deep into yourself. Cocoon, rest, go slow. Honour your feelings. You will come out the other side brighter.
We also have Venus in conjunction with this eclipse to lighten the heaviness.
Overall this is a softer eclipse than the one coming up on November 8th.
Scorpio is connected to Kali, to Pele, she is the dark goddess. She isn’t scared of her own internal world or facing themes of death and rebirth. She celebrates the natural cycles of life. She isn’t afraid to dive deep into her pain.
As the saying goes, ‘if you’re feeling it, you’re healing it”.
